Actually in the world setting i run in, all the mages when they reach a certain power level are sought out by an organization called the "tower of troubles", like a mages union. They pay dues and share their research, any non-registered mage is hunted down by the magic hating clerics. I didnt really go into that, because its pretty specific to our world. Go to Comment
actually my friend who invented it and the world we play in is a member of this board, his handle is oakleafbard, ill see if he will write it up, im sure he has more notes on the subject than me. Go to Comment
It has been said that within the mountains (or was it the darklands?) there dwells a fluffy creature of immense cuteness. This creature is so adorable that all who encounter it are filled with joy so great their mortal forms cannot contain it. And they explode. Several magic institutions are desperate to study the creature or better yet capture one to prove the theory of an elemental plane of "D'Awwww".
