Decades ago, a cabal of greedy scholars calling themselves Denagar’s Regulation Mages (DRM) began hoarding magical knowledge. Only those willing to pay top coin are allowed access to the archives. Even then, to pass on any of the information you gain is to invite swift death by the DRM’s assassins.
To battle the mighty powers of the DRM, a loose association of wizards, sorcerers, and rogues has sprung up. Calling themselves the Evocation Freedom Force (EFF), they believe that magic belongs to everyone, not just those who can afford it.
