The Song of the Qui-Chi
The sorcerer kings
Approximately 2,000 years before the present day, Borys and most of the Champions betrayed Rajaat and imprisoned him in the Hollow. In exchange for the help they provided, Borys gave the Champions that were now loyal to him the following benefits: First, he allowed each Champion to claim one of the city-states of the Tyr Region as his or her own domain, elevating each to the title of sorcerer-king. The resulting storm of energy as the initial metamorphosing spells were cast connected each of the sorcerer-kings to ail of the elemental planes, thereby creating magical conduits through which elemental priestly magic could be cast, now the sorcerer-king were like gods. The Age of the Sorcerer-Kings began with betrayal and was marked by tyranny and slavery. The world was turned into a wasteland by the sorcerer-kings’, defiling magic, and that has been its state through to the present day.
