As the adventure mounts in the world of Tarune, tensions continue to rise as the Caredon Cycle reaches its 1000-year peak. Without giving too much away about the Caredon Cycle, which will be revealed as the story develops, we wanted to give you a brief description of it so as to shed some light without revealing too many details. To do so, here is a quick review of the status of magic in Necromancers’ Pride.
The Strands of the Magics: The world of magic is a mysterious and complex place that is not only controlled by the energies of universe, but also by the rules of nature. There are four basic strands of magic in which the powers of both energy and nature can be channeled. These strands create the foundations for Necromancers, Oracles, Battle Magi and Healers, along with the sub schools that fall within each group of Magi. The Strand of the Transcendental, from which are spawned the Necromancers. The Strand of the Metaphysical, from which the Oracles hail. The Strand of Evocation, from which the Battle Magi develop. The Strand of Perception and Balance, from which the Healers originate. Since the apocalypse of the Mourning Night, all the Strands of the Magics have suffered greatly. Today, there are far fewer Magi in the Known Kingdoms than ever before in recorded history. As a result of the lowering of numbers, some Magi have now become extremely powerful, as there are fewer Magi to sap the magical energies from the environment and each other.
Tarune is the name of the planet on which the Known Kingdoms are located. The core of the planet Tarune is made of dense crystal. As with the precious metals of this world, the crystal of Tarune’s core has, through intense pressure, formed the perfect jewel. This Jewel radiates with the energies of the universe. It absorbs the energies from the universe while acting as a conduit for them, releasing them throughout the planet. It is these energies from which the Strands of the Magics draw their power.
