The Ways are pathways through the Nevernever accessible to mortals.
A wizard can open a gateway to the Nevernever from one location in the mortal world, follow one of these paths a short distance, and open another gateway to a point in the mortal world that would have taken much longer to reach through traditional methods.
The Ways may change from decade to decade.
