All across the Warhammer world are areas where magical energy spilling from the north pools and gathers. Over the years, many races have attempted to tap into this mystical power source or tried to disperse its baleful energies. Examples of arcane monoliths include Elven waystones, Beastmen herdstones and Chaos altars.
The army that controls an arcane monolith gains an extra power dice in its magic phase and an extra dispel dice in the enemy's magic phase. These are added to the pool of dice available to all Wizards.
