Magic

Arcane magic in Iro is heavily regulated. There are even “magic licenses” that you must obtain in order to practice magic. (This is a relatively new phenomenon, instituted shortly after the Republic was formed, in response to some pretty serious magic used by the Dhregen Sakhr to kill Gamavër. Basically, think Hiroshima except with Wish and Time Stop spells, etc.) Divine and natural magic is less-heavily regulated (especially Padoran magic) though it is still generally distrusted and looked down on by the populace. Magic users cause Bad Shit to happen, so commoners are usually worried about it. Ironically, bardic and warlock spells are not regulated, because they are not considered “magic.” This obviously doesn’t affect you tremendously in the Steppe, but it’s nice to know.
