Magic in Evenfall
Aellorim is a world steeped in magic and once Evenfall housed the epicenter of magical learning, Beorzahn. The Remnants of The Shattering When Beorzahn sank the lands that had been in direct contact with the kingdom were suffused with wild untamed magic. Along the coastline of the Sunken Kingdom, magic is nearly impossible to use correctly. Even the simplest Cantrip has the potential to turn wild and cause disastrous consequences. The further away you move from the coast the easier magic is to control. The Stigma As a result of The Shattering the three remaining kingdoms came together to ban individual arcane magical study outright. Eventually each kingdom created its own institution for magical research and learning and began recruiting gifted people to study the wild magic. The common people still tend to view arcane spellcasters with disdain or outright hostility due to fear, as many rumors about why Beorzahn sank have circulated in the 3000 years since its fall. Some folk claim it was the gods who struck down the arrogant human mages for trying to gain mastery of the very powers of creation, while others claim it was the magic itself that the humans lost control of that caused the land to break and sink into the sea. Other types of magic, such as those gifted by the gods or magic drawn from the natural world is viewed with much less disdain than Arcane magic The Institutes and State Approved Research The inherited magics of Sorcerers, gifted through their bloodlines, is one of the few ways Arcane magic wielders are accepted in Evenfall. Those gifted in such ways are sought out by the Institutes for training under the careful control of the Kingdoms, so as to prevent another Shattering from occurring.
