Kingdoms of the Mists
Hazlik the Archmage
Who is Halik the Archmage?
Human wizard, ruler of Hazlan, a dictatorship. He employs a council of governors, spellcasters all, who enforce his edicts with powerful and destructive magic.
Which is his Kingdom?
Hazlan a land of farms and fields, where the citizens live in terror despite their prosperous environs. Hazlan supports two magic schools, one in each of the largest villages, and nearly everyone in this realm works to meet the needs of the scholars and students. Mages are cultivated here but are subject to inquisition – ‘called to the tables’, as it is known locally, the tables being Hazlik,s laboratory where ambitious and cruel experiments are performed – if they grow too powerful or discover something of interest to Hazlik. The scholars are not much better off, as Hazlik expects great progress from them.
What is his Influence in the Kingdoms?
Hazlik differs from Azalin, the other great mage of the Kingdoms, in his eagerness to share the craft and knowledge of magic with others. His apparent generosity is self serving and comes with a price. Those with a positive relationship with Hazlik likely have given him something he wanted, are searching for something he seeks, or are his agents in the wider world. Conflicted or negative may be escapees from his schools or be concealing something from him.
