Horror Magic

From Sagataflwiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Horror Magic is a somewhat unusual Realm, in that it provides two tenously related kinds of effects. One is the inducement of fear - stark fear for high-level Spells - which is often an effect classified as Necromancy in some other fantasy RPG systems, and the other is horrible body-wrecking or Sanity-damaging Spells (as well as some enviromentally harmful ones), also something that in some other RPGs are classified as Necromancy.

In the Ärth setting, Horror Magic is the only Realm out of 24 that has a source known with absolute certainty: It was invented by the Magocrats of Bretagne, former Druids who had seized control of their society, toppled the tradition of monarchy, and enslaved the non-druidic population, and it was invented for one purpose only: To make their subjects, and the rulers and populaions of neighbouring areas, fear the Magocrats.
