The ShatterGlass Conspiracy
Fifteen centuries ago, the first and only council of the regions leaders came together to end the Age of War that had desolated much of the island. From this council came The Pact, a binding document said to be written and enchanted by Thalmuus the Archmage. This document laid out principles upon which the regions should be handled, regulating trade between them and finalizing island-wide law. It’s is widely considered to be a myth, however, given the fact that higher levels of magic are rarely seen on the island.
The details of The Pact are vastly unknown, speculated in-depth by those who believe it exists. it is widely accepted that the regional leaders are forced to respect The Pact or face certain death.
