The Iron Rose Chronicles
Magic permeates all living beings in the world of Artha. It courses though every living animal, plant, and sentient creature. Despite this ubiquitous presence, only a rare few posses the ability to manipulate it. Spell-casters are able to draw from the forces of Chaos around them and bend it to their will. Those lacking in strength to use it will instead, be used by it; Becoming vessels for inscrutable forces that lie beyond our dimension.
Magic Items are rare in the world of Artha. The coveted red steel of the Savage Baronies is a scarce commodity, and weapons made of the ancient star-steel are hoarded by the cruel Imyrians. However, even mundane items can eventually become legendary in the hands of heroic, or truly evil, creatures. Each magic item is a rare legacy of someone’s legendary ambition and exceptional skill. Although most folk have heirlooms, truly potent objects are incredibly rare.
