Sorcery in Karash

In ancient times, sorcery (the magic from within) was considered by many, to be a gift from the gods: Wether it was the gift of the Storms, the light of the Celestial Stars, the union between mortals and the Mighty Dragons, the strange entities of the shadows, and the wild randomness of the Fey, Sorcery was viewed with wonder and awe by all, and sorcerers were on par with priests and soothsayers... In Ikele, Sorcerer-kings in the grasslands waged war for supremacy, in Kannath, Sorcerers played a part in the construction of the grand temples alongside the wizards and priests, and in the The Northlands, Sorcerers were viewed sometimes with fear, and sometimes with awe.   But, eventually, Sorcerers began to fear something else: The Elves; it was known that many Elves would hunt down and capture sorcerers to take them to their shinning cities for some unknown purpose at the time, and then the Goblin Empire of Hark-Narrath came to take Sorcerers as well, using them in their experiments.   When the War of Winter's Fire Began, the Elves began to take more prisoners from the human population, and soon it was apparent for the reason: With magic, they made half-elves for their armies and bred them fast so they could be used as quickly as possible, and the artifacts they used were powered by arcane batteries... Made of sorcerers. The Highborn nobility have never repented from this "it was war, we needed soldiers", they say.   This is why Elves are largely mistrusted (to the exception of the Duskborn Elves), and even today, there are almost no Sorcerers in Karash, save for those that hail from the The Crimson Lands, but in there, they must be tested to see if their magic has no demonic implications, according to the Silver Inquisitors of the Tetrarchy of Faith... Everywhere else, sorcerers are viewed (as with most spell casters who are not Artificers) with some level of suspicion, and those that know of Sorcery view them as curiosities.
