The monarch used to have absolute powers until the disappearance of King Henry V. A "temporary" replacement was put on the throne to hold it until King Henry returned, and he would have only one vote on the governing council of nobles and no other powers except persuasion.

Ink Gauntlet

       By: Scrasamax

The idea of using tattoos to contain magic powers is not a new one. The Ink gauntlet follows the basic premise of using rare and precious inks to inscribe spells into the skin of a mage or would be spell-imbued person.
