Arcane spell casters hold all positions of power Wizards are held in more esteem than sorcerers Powerful mages rule vast estates Most leave the actual ruling to Overseers Mages have absolute authority within their dominions Commoners have very few rights Crimes are harshly punished Divine spell casters are respected next to arcane casters The country was dominated by necromancers for many centuries 200 years ago, during Minaran secession, necromancers ceased to be the only ruling class Other types of arcane spell casters gained prominence Necromancers are not fully trusted anymore, but are respected Anyone, regardless of race or social class, with any talent for magic is allowed to try to become a mage. Those who fail become fodder for the necromancers. Kiris’ relations with it’s neighbors are mostly guarded Kiris does not trust it’s neighbors and they do not trust it Kiris has waged war on, or invaded, all of it’s neighbors more than once Relations with Minara are hostile Minara was once a part of Kiris It is now a nation of arcanophobic witch-hunters
