Regulation of Magical Items Act

With the swathe of adventurers in the world of Eurithan, it is only natural that the governing bodies of the world make an attempt to regulate the use of their arsenal. As such, the Regulation of Magical Items, first written during the Wars of the Colossus but in use orally beforehand, has been the bread and butter of protecting those not as fortunate as to own one of these revered trinkets.


The purpose of this act is to establish guidelines for the use and regulation of magical items within the authorised jurisdictions.

Historical Details


In the past, magical items were often wielded by powerful individuals or organizations to achieve their own ends, regardless of the consequences for others. This led to widespread abuse and misuse of these items, causing significant harm and disruption to society. In response to these issues, the government or other authorities decided to establish a regulatory framework to ensure that magical items were used responsibly and for the benefit of the community.   As part of this regulatory framework, the "Regulation of Magical Items Act" was passed, establishing guidelines for the use and possession of magical items within the jurisdiction. The act established a system for the registration of magical items, as well as a specialized task force to enforce the regulations and ensure compliance.   Over time, the act has been amended and refined to address new challenges and ensure that it remains effective in regulating the use of magical items. Despite some initial resistance, the act has been widely accepted and has contributed to a more stable and just society, where the power of magical items is used for the common good.


  • Year 1: The law regulating the use of magic items is ratified in order to address issues such as abuse of power, misuse of magic, and potential threats to public safety.
  • Year 1: In order to comply with the new law, individuals and organizations possessing magic items are required to register them with the appropriate authorities and obtain a license to use them. This process involved filling out paperwork, paying fees, and undergoing background checks.
  • Year 2: Authorities begin to enforce the new law, cracking down on individuals and organizations using magic items without proper registration or licensing. This included arrests, confiscation of illegal magic items, fines, and other penalties.
  • Year 3: Some members of the community resisted and objected to the new law, either through disagreement with its provisions or because they felt it impinged on their personal freedoms. This lead to protests, civil unrest, and acts of violence.
  • Year 5: As the law became more widely enforced, the majority of individuals and organizations started to comply with its requirements. The use of magic items became more regulated and controlled, leading to changes in the way they are used in society.
  • Year 10: The regulation of magic items began to impact the market for these items, either increasing or decreasing their availability and driving changes in their price. This lead to shifts in the power dynamics of the world, as those with access to magic items tended to hold more sway or influence than those without.

Public Reaction

As the law was implemented, different segments of the public began to have different reactions to the law, with some supporting it and others opposing it. This lead to debates, discussions, and some bloody conflict as different groups sought to advance their political positions.


  • Increased safety and order: The law was extremely effective in curbing the abuse of magic and preventing threats to public safety, it is often remembered as a positive force that helped to maintain order and protect citizens during dark times.
  • Suppression of magical creativity: On the other hand, the law has been seen as overly restrictive, remembered as a hindrance to magical innovation and creativity. Some have seen it as a way to stifle the development of new magical techniques or technologies.


The Regulation of Magical Items Act has been in effect since its ratification, and is reviewed once every 100 years. This can be accelerated is the convening council decides that there is a threat or loophole made possible by the wordage used within the document.
