The world is not a nice place
Due to inaction on the part of the previous parties the following effects are still in effect and were left to grow un challenged.

The world as it is now.

From an un known source radiates an oppressive force that stifles magic in the following way. There is a visual effect that accompanies this, that visual effect is mile wide sigils that drift across the sky orbiting the source of the effect.
The radius of this effect is not fully understood but with a week of study and an knowledge astronomy check dc 25 can allow someone to calculate the distance and direction to the origin.
  • all conjuration (calling, summoning, and teleportation) effects have ceased to function.
  • divination effects that contact extra planer beings (such as commune, and contact other plane) are blocked.
  • divine spell casters trying to replenish spells for the day have 20% chance per spell to not gain that spell that day.
  • divine spell casters are at a -4 caster level penalty.
  • all turn and rebuke checks are made at a -20 penalty.


While the above effect is localised there is a global effect that drasticly effect what is encountered in random encountered. Also how frequently you will do so.

Exceptions are not born they are made

This means that you don't start out doing an impossible thing you have to put in the hard work to ensure that you can do it. Don't expect any thing to happen over night or for any thing to be easy.

If you need an example look to the drizzt saga...how long did drizzt have to hide who he was untill people knew him enough for him to walk openly without a disguise. Years for some places decades for others.
