The Rending of Palaghast
Magic is still highly mistrusted among many, as most feel you are touching the source of the Being From Beyond itself. In the Domain of Pala-Vivo it is outright banned. Anyone caught practicing the arcane arts is executed without trial.
Those that wield magic for long start to undergo physical manifestations. Their hair turns brittle and white, while the irises of their eyes turn a pale purple. To use the arcane arts, to some, means to sell your soul for power here, while giving up your place along side Palaghast in the afterlife.
