Tongue-Binding Arts

By:

A rare and localized school of contagion magic. An offshoot of Entwining.

The Binding of Tongues is old witch magic, which evolved from that most ancient caste of practitioners known throughout history as the School of Entwiners

The witches of Karaam-Sava were, and some say still are, most known for brandishing this form of arcana.

Thousands of years ago, tongue-binding magic was used by the witches to thwart the pygmy armies of the Gwa and their vile Spell-Throats.

Centuries later, during the Ebn-Nodd Imperium (the empire of the Sons of Nodd), these same witches, or more accurately, their descendants and apt pupils, used tongue-binding magic in battling back the relentless assaults of the magicians of Uo, who came from their hilly, eastern lands, riding their malevolent winged, devil-goats, in brazen attempts to assassinate the Potentates and Imperators of Karaam-Sava, in retaliation for the years of rapine and pillage the people of Uo had suffered and endured, during Ebn-Nodds empirical expansion.

In essence, Tongue-Binding involved the silencing of spell casters via the laws of Contagion Magic

I'm looking for someone to either help me with this (just add scrolls!), or to just tell me that this is not worth doing as an entire article :)

Still trying to get my head around this one, though the 'vile Spell Throats' sounds cool.

Great Magic and Ruination

       By: rickster

With a huge number of sacrificial victims, another realm long ago secretly bound a Prince of the land spirits, Iorstonn by name, thus ensuring the fertility, and improving the magical defences, of their realm. But binding that Prince to one spot has disrupted the weather and magical patterns (ley lines?) over half the continent. Things have become bad enough that a coalition has been formed to rectify the situation, once divinations have established the cause.

Your party is one of the teams assembled to do the rectification: find the binding object and steal it ("so that we can destroy it here in our realm, of course"...*) or destroy it over there. Presumably the Prince will be grateful to his rescuers and angry at the binders, but with a greater spirit like Iorstonn one can never be sure: such beings are "tricksy".

* Of course, the rulers of our realm might want to control Iorstonn for their own ends...
