In Arkelon, and most worlds beyond, an energy hardly understood by mere mortals is present: Arcana. Wildly unpredictable and dangerous, some foolish and determined individual learned to control it in ways that surpasses the limits of the human body. Usually used as batteries and fuel, the Arcane energies often cause sickness in those who temper too much with them. Despite this, it can also be used to cure illnesses and heal wounds, often leaving its users sickened for a short period of time.
Arcanists are people who attempted to master this energy, and uncover its multiple usage, including healing, and controlling other people. Some ill intentioned arcanists discovered a possibility to contact other planes of existence, and make pacts with otherworldly entities, in exchange for fiendish powers. Most Arcanist join specialised schools to learn how to manipulate the arcane energies without killing themselves. Arcanists lend their incredible powers to heroes in time of need, helping them overcome incredible dangers by curing their wounds, or bypass obstacles by creating powerful illusions and mind-control effects.
