Background Edit

The Arcanists of the Empire travel to the barren wastes to tap into the potent arcane energies that emanate from the inhospitable desert to further their knowledge of the Arcana. Once they master their ability to siphon the arcane they return to the Archives of the Empire to study the spells penned by previous Arcanists.

The Arcanist is the most advanced spellcaster of the Empire, she has the power to tap into the arcane energy of the realm and weave it into potent spells. In battle they will unleash their control of the Arcane to vanquish any who threaten their research.[1]
