Magic used to be stable. The Six Orders jealously guarded the secrets of Arcanum, fueling wild tales and mad speculation. Then, they turned on each other. The war was brief, but it changed everything.
Without the Six Orders around to hold the reigns, magic has made its way out into the world for everyone to use and abuse.
The world is changing, and Mages have to change with the times.
