Sorcerer-Kings Rule the City-States

Terrible defilers of immense power rule all but one of the city-states.

These mighty spellcasters have held their thrones for centuries; no one alive remembers a time before the sorcerer-kings.

Some claim to be gods, and some claim to serve gods. Some are brutal oppressors, where others are more subtle in their tyranny.

The sorcerer-kings govern through priesthoods or bureaucracies of greedy, ambitious templars, lesser defilers who can call upon the kings’ powers.
