Proclamation of the role of magic

Post by Melnerag on Thu May 20, 2010 1:58 am

The Chapter is slowly preparing for Cataclysm. Much will be changed and even more added and improved. "Proclamation of the role of magic" is first Chapter reform. (title of the next change is "Protectorate reform" jus to get your excitement up!) It is aimed at providing the Inquisition with more fun things to do - running after mages. But it is also meant to make RP more interessting for mages and especially warlocks. Warlocks are supposed to be hiding their nature instead of making out with their succubus outside! To clarify, Dalaran Laws of Magic are referred to but not listed. The list of 'laws' you see there are Chapter's own laws which we claim are inspired on Dalaran's. It is up for your character to decide whether that claim is true!

Proclamation of the role of magic
This grim announcement is written with an old-fashioned script on browning paper and posted throughout the Mage District. Below is a picture of a whole class of magi-students working dilligently at a long table under the supervision of a stern-looking, bearded archmage. Next to it, a picture of insane-looking, black-haired savant sitting in a cellar with some mean-looking equipment, inserting strange tubes and wires into a decaying rat. A witch-hunter is right in the process of stepping into the room after he had kicked in the door.

Magic has been part of our society from the days of Thoradin and the Chapter will never abandon the long-standing magical tradition within the ranks of humanity. We believe that magic is merely a tool to be used, a tool capable of affecting the world as well as facilitating the inquiry in the nature of the fabric of reality and the Laws of Nature. Magic however cannot answer fundamental ethical questions, offers no consolation and provides no guidance to as to how to live our lives – these matters remain in the domain of Faith and therefore the Holy Light.

Dalaran’s Law of Magic is to be upheld by all practitioners of magic. Summoning of Demons and practice of Necromancy are strictly forbidden on pain of death or exile. Research of the Dark Arts (warlock-magic and shadow-magic) are only permitted under supervision and with approval of the Kirin Tor. The Chapter is eager to employ mages who unite in them the curiosity needed for magical inquiry as well as unbreakable faith in the Holy Light. We also employ certified researchers (not practitioners) of the Dark Arts for purposes of investigation of confiscated dart artifacts. All Kirin Tor regulations apply.

Those researchers must also abide by special chapter-regulations: their faith must be deemed sufficiently strong to resist the temptations of the Dark Side and they must be able to fully explain their every research activity and role of every item they employ in inquiry; failure to provide unambiguous explanation will result in revocation of rights. Every month such practitioner shall undergo a thorough examination by an Exorcist.

The Chapter sees it as our duty to enforce the Laws of Magic upon every mage. First and foremost, the Kirin Tor has shown great capacity of the magical community to make and follow its own rules. Therefore it is the prime obligation of every mage to be a member of the Violet Academy and receive a Dalaran-certificate. Secondly, all researchers of the Dark Arts must possess a special permission from the Kirin Tor and an appointed Kirin Tor supervisor. Practice of the Dark Arts, ranging from calling forth a bolt of shadow energy to raising the dead is strictly forbidden. Every mage refusing to have his research investigated by the Inquisition will be considered highly suspect and investigated through other means.

The Chapter will enforce these rules upon all mages:
1) Membership of the Violet Academy is an obligation of any mage. Any mage who cannot prove his membership is a witch or a warlock.
2) Every mage must possess a certificate promulgated by the Kirin Tor. Apprentices who practice without graduating will be reported to the Violet Citadel with a request of revocation of their mage-rights. Uncertified wizards are warlocks and witches.
3) Research in the Dark Arts requires a special permission from the Violet Citadel and an appointed Kirin Tor supervisor. Unable to prove one is in possession of those means that one is a heretic.
4) Practice of the Dark Arts is heresy, and punishable by Holy Law as well as the laws of his majesty.
5) Refusal to provide an Inquisitor with access to ones research is considered highly suspect, and those who have something to hide must rightfully fear Light’s Wrath!
6) Any mage who has forged or lied about his membership, certificate or permission is warlock and a heretic.

OOC: The Chapter recruits mages and even warlocks (provided they are certified researchers who do not run around –performing- dark magic) We will also go absolutely zealous on the ass of every mage or warlock under the sun. So, get your Kirin Tor certificates out of the closet. And know – we can write a letter to Dalaran inquiring if it is genuine. If you’ve lied, you have less than a week to hide!

OOC: No, no, no! Arcane magic should be banned, completely! We've all seen how corrupting it is, psht! Haha, but no seriously: Finally, some sense is coming into you humans! I was thinking of having my human write a piece somewhat similar to this. At any rate, well done!

OOC: If magic was not lore-wise such a grand pillar in the human society, we would declare all magic heresy. But now it just makes no sense. Wait...did I just refer to 'sense'!? I must repent! *whips self*

OOC: This sounds like fun. I enjoyed reading this Smile Perhaps a noob question but is there actually an RP group representing the Kirin Tor that could verify these certificates? Razz

OOC: sadly there isn't. So we just RP sending a letter to the Kirin Tor and ask the mage in question an OOC question. "Is your character actually affiliated? And what would Kirin Tor reply?"

OOC: Nice way to integrate it and bring it back to the interaction between 2 (or more) players without creating too much hassle.

OOC: As the Minister of Magic, part of me loves the fact you'll pretty much be doing what I want. But IC Vezullia will chastise your ass if you run after magi. This'll be fun! Very Happy

this leads to conflict, which leads to roleplay.

Valerias traced a finger across one of the posters, a thin smile crossing her lips. 'My library...' she murmured, sighing softly. Vale was the soul of caution when it came to her arts; only a handful of people alive knew that she was capable of any magic at all, illegal or otherwise, but now and then, especially in summer, she did like to take a tome and a nice glass of wine outside to peruse demonic runes and the structure of various curses of agony.

Alas, the Chapter wasn't as easy to fool with innocent smiles as were most of Stormwind's guard. She sighed again. She would have to restrict her reading to indoors.


OOC: Great initiative! It's about time someone did something about all those darn non-cultist shadow mages and ne'er-to-do-well illegal practitioners running around Stormwind! *hacking cough*

We are moving to Darkshire, but paired with some more changes to the way Chapter operates, that does not prevent us from doing Light's Work in Stormwind! Even more so, moving to Darkshire increases our effectiveness. Heretics, beware!

-Passing through the district, Geldar stops and reads through the poster before turning around to face one of the Judgement clad paladins following him- "Even when a dog loses all its teeth it can still bark, pity that only members of the Kirin`tor and the King`s city guard can enforce the laws in the King`s lands." -he then nods and continues to the mage tower to get more information about a certain Arathorian Mage he and his men must track down-

And so Geldar walked on, unknowing that the Holy Law is universal and binds all - and it can be enforced by every man of faith. To deny the people to do Justice, is treason against the very essence of Good!

-coughs-

And so Geldar walked on, knowing that the Law of the King is universal in this city and its lands and binds all above any other lunatic fabricated law, that is why Varian Wrynn is King and his word is the law. (Not for example A`dal who is a beeing of pure Light) - and it can be enforced by every man of the King. To give every crazy lunatic the freedom to do Justice is Anarchy, which in these lands is treason.

Fixed.

Why would Dalaran rules be enforced in Stormwind? Not every mage is of the Kirin Tor, and seeing as most of the mages in SW are or were being taught in the Academy of Arcane Arts and Sciences in the Wizards Sanctum then surely rules are taught regarding the use of magic in the kingdom.

I think it seems more appropriate for rules in Stormwind to come from Stormwind is all.

I would think that Academy is still connected to Dalaran. Correct me if I am wrong.

All magic is directed, directly or indirectly from the Kirin`tor or representatives of the Kirin`tor. The magus sanctum of Stormwind is purely a branch of the Kirin`tor organisation as -every- mage is a member of the Kirin`tor or has been taught his arts by one. I`ll dig up some lore-wiki-blizzard page for this I think.

They have always been two separate schools of magic.

Not that I'm trying to say i think the idea is bad, i am a keen supporter of all of your ideas, its just I saw it from my mage/warlock's point of view and he would disregard these new rules as he has never had anything to do with the Kirin Tor

Well, those rules arent even official. They are a proclamation from the zealouts, which any common thinking man would disregard as nonsense, as the two following points below:

A) Only sanctified members of the Kirin`tor can enforce their own rules aswell as dictate them, or alternativly appointed Kirin`tor officials.

B) Purely from a IC standpoint, if there are any rules regarding the city`s use of magic those would be the ones made from Vez`as she is the Kirin`tor representative etc. Everything else people could simply consider false ICly. Though if there are rules they could be quite similar to those writen above.
