Dominating endless sands of the continents Southern lands; the Icathian Empire rules through its vast arcane might. A Magos-King, whose throne is said to sit above the heart of the world, is viewed as the ultimate living authority.
With a Council of Arcanists at his command, each in turn capable of calling upon their own Adept Mages, there is little in Icathia or any other land that escapes their ever scrying eye.
Long ago subsuming any civil authority, those without arcane talent have become reduced to servant status. They now perform menial tasks, or work as traders or guards; allowing the mages to enjoy a hedonistic lifestyle, unconcerned with daily neccesities.
