Sample text

Hope for a magical resurgence rose again. The Arrow mages — along with other Pentacle mages in the New World — underestimated the corruptive factor of the Fallen World. Where exploitation of native peoples and natural resources was possible, the mercantile interests of England, France, the Netherlands, Germany and Spain prevailed, and greed for the novelties brought to the natives from over the wide water by the paleskinned visitors opened the door for wholesale suborning and eventual destruction of the native cultures.

The escalation of the tactics of terror and the growing association of war with atrocity have driven Arrow mages to consider carefully when and how to involve themselves. Decisions to favor one country over its enemy or one faction within a country against its rival now depend more on the ethics of combat a side displays than its philosophy or the cause it espouses. Even so, the order finds itself often at odds as mages tend to support the sides that reflect their own cultural or moral upbringing, sometimes putting them at odds with their superiors in the order.

Few modern Ar rows believe these sorts of things, and those who do are usually ostracized from the order. Corollary: The Mind, Body and Soul Battle Eternally The quest for self-perfection never ends. Even the best of all possible worlds boils with strife. Even mages who perfect the worlds within them only internalize the struggle. The body distracts the 46 mind. The mind reduces spiritual insights to mere facts. The soul tempts a mage to look inward, away from the body’s needs. This isn’t the only type of tension among the mind, body and soul — and those divisions aren’t the only ones Arrows use to study internal conflict.
