The Secrect Legacy of the Magani
The Great Mage Wars
Also known as the Terrible Desolation in some parts of Alaman. The Great Mage Wars were a massive series of large wars that spanned 277 years and encompassing all parts of Alaman. It is estimated by scholars that roughly 2/3 of the people that lived during that chaotic period died as a result of violence, mostly from the powerful arcane weapons wielded by the feared battlemages. Magical devices that had the power to destroy entire cities were used with reckless abandon. The Elemental Chaos was unleashed durring a war late in the period, laying waste to Thanelis and the ocean. During this period every noble who could claim to rule any domain had an army of mages to unleash wanton destruction and death upon any opposition. The fact that not all arcane casters participated in the fighting has been widely suppressed by the scholarly community. In fact, a small band of casters named the Magani objected to using arcane forces for violence quite vocally.
