Dominion of Empyrea
The Dominion of Empyrea keeps a close eye on magical activity. Early in its formative years, House Theurge discovered that magic could be easily used to subjugate those who could not use it. To prevent this. Aquila Theurge I created the magic licensing system.
Every mage (defined as “one who can manipulate arcane or planar energy”) that enters the Dominion is made to register themselves. This involves a nominal amount of paperwork, mostly concerning magical specialties, places of study, and past achievements. This process is mostly for bookkeeping purposes on the part of House Theurge, who keep track of mages and magic. If a magical crime is committed, that mage’s registration information can be used to more easily capture or subdue them.
