The Web Table is an artefact first introduced in MAG 3.

It is a large, dark wood table that has engraved upon it a hypnotic pattern that appears to lead towards the centre, where there is a recess for a matching box to be placed.

Later statements reveal it as being an embodiment of the Web, though rituals performed by Adelard Decker have bound the NotThem, an aspect of the Stranger, to it.
