Rage against Creation
A plane of extremely high magic.
Adrumot is a plane with a strong undercurrent, a veritable font, of magical energy the inhabitants call “The River of Mana”. This energy source has suffused every aspect of their plane, from the plants to the people. The people have many temples to this power source, though less as worship, and more as a source of sustenance and succor. The temples are built on intersections of “lay lines”, which are diversions of the font that flow near the surface, metaphysically, and the intersections often cause eruptions, or “fountains”. It is on these that the temples are built. In the territory of such a lay line (which are far more common underground), spells and spell-like abilities function as though under the effects of the Empower Spell feat. In the presence of one of the fountains, spells are both Empowered and Maximized.
With so much power in such a small area, abuses of magical energy are common. As a result, people, both magic-using and non (though the latter becoming increasingly rare) banded together in massive mana-charged cities to regulate and control the flow of power. A code of law was enacted, known as The Thousand Codes, to prevent the unlawful, and more importantly abusive and dangerous, use of magic. Many individuals were brought in to form a highly-specialized anti-magic police force, called simply “The Regulators”, individuals known as “Officers”. Thesl Laithe is one of these.
The most valued individuals for recruitment by The Regulators are Geomancers, people with a natural ability to cap fonts of magic or, more rarely, absorb and obliterate projected mana entirely. Such individuals, if they cannot be recruited, are carefully watched and sometimes tricked into being present at scenes where their powers would be useful.
Though only recently in contact with other Material Planes, Adrumot, and more specifically the capital city of Zekhrut Tag (Crystal Towers), has been sending Regulators out to attempt to impede the most grievous abuses of magic on other dimensions. Because of this, they have come into conflict with House Usher.
