The currentstream is the name of the mythical band of current which wraps around the galaxy in Carve the Mark and The Fates Divide. It varies in color, pink to red to purple to dark blue, and separates the inner nation-planets from the Brim. Each planet has a different attitude and belief system about the currentstream, ranging from worship to indifference. The currentstream is said to power one’s currentgift. Traveling through the currentstream like the Shotet do on their Sojourn can make ones currentgift incredibly strong as they pass through.
