Overview: Hardestin currently embraces their patron goddess in her “Purifying Flame” aspect, blaming “magicians” for the loss of the Destin Mts. to the east in the last war. To that end, the practice of most forms of magic have been outlawed in Hardestin, except of course for divine magic dedicated to the Purifying Flame. The Throne of Arcane Truth has been enshrined at the Ever-Glorious Temple in Yeren’O, and any citizen suspected of being a practitioner of arcane magic is forced to sit upon it; those found guilty are burned alive afterwards. Rumors among the remaining arcanists whisper of a technique to shield the mind, but few if any know this secret.
