The Great Masquerade
Policies On Arcane Magic By Country
This will be a largely incomplete list on how arcane magic is treated in other countries/nations/regions/empires/vassal states. This is because I will need to finish the list of countries that exist in the campaign world/make the map of the campaign world. Most counties will have restrictions placed on mage by the government, though there will be a (very) small number of exceptions.
Bards are exempted from this persecution because it would be too difficult to enforce this rule on them, as there are many more bards than sorcerer/wizards, and they have never had any form of centralized group, unlike mages guilds. Because of this however, bards aren’t allowed to enter in Mage guilds. This list will include conquered countries/regions/etc. in order to reflect the feelings of locals in those regions toward mages.
Drelan Empire: There is some restriction on mage activities in the empire, however, mages in the Drelan Empire are universally controlled by the central government, IE the emperor himself. The centers of management for mages in the empire is done by the Drelan Mages Guild.
