Updates on SaturdaysThe Kingdom of Via is in turmoil. The First Princess was assassinated, the court is split apart between the traditionalist and the reformist factions. The criminal that killed the First Princess has perished, but the damage to the kingdom remains, as the lowborn people, who unlike the nobles, mostly incapable of tapping into “Vis” the energy from which the nobility draws power to use Arcane Sciences are gradually realizing that the nobility isn’t as infallible as they seemed. . In the midst of this looming chaos a young mage, the first lowborn mage to ever graduate from the Royal Arcane Sciences University of Rigel, is, without realizing, drafted to become a paw in the silent war between the factions of the court. A Knight, highborn yet discriminated against because of his parentage, also ends up involved in this struggle for the dominance of Via’s soul, as he is recruited to be the young mage’s bodyguard.
