What would make a baron or monarch hate mages so much that he forms an order of magic hating knights to destroy all magic users? :twocents: :mace: :battleaxe: :medieval: :axeman: :knightsofni1:

10. Embarrassed by a magic user, pride demands revenge

9. Robbed by a magic user, pride demands revenge

8. Controlled this one time by a magic user, fear demands over reaction

7. Magic users channel evil gods/spirits, Good demands action

6. Magic users channel chaos or highly destructive forces, Law demands action

5. Magic is considered evil by the Clerics, religious duty to purge the witches

4. Rejected by hot Magical girls, pride demands revenge

11. Magic users are hard to control and reject the Baron's authority. The Baron hates that.
12. The Baron is evil, and the magic users are opposing him. He has misrepresented them as heretics or devil worshippers.

The Baron is a magic user and looking to remove dangers to his power grab.
Magic is rare and misunderstood. Baron fears the power.
Inept mage caused damage or death to his family or his city. Too dangerous to have magic.
Mages hold the wealth. Destroying the mages for whatever reason gives the Baron keys to untold wealth.
Mages are starting to define the law through their power. More people are going to mages for their wisdom and decisions on conflicts undermining the Baron's rule. Dilution of power.

Baron is in fact an impostor, and wants to weaken the Barony by removing its magic users so that an invasion is easier.
Baron is an uneducated oaf, and hates the knowledgeable wizards for their erudition (they may have been a little pompous and aloof about it, and insulted him for being an uneducated simpleton).
Baron is a man-eating demon in disguise. Magic users are especially tasty.

In the majority of campaigns I've run, I generally make magic a scarcity.  With this in mind, I think the primary motivators for anyone not embracing magic would be for the same base reasons we reject new ideas today;

Magic is not understood, and therefor feared
Its perceived that Magic can't be controlled
All magic is evil (its against religion)  Religious dogma is always an easy motive.
Jealousy that the Baron can't perform magic himself- therefore no one can
