Arcane Magic is the most common magic used in the Merovia. Like similar setting, Arcane Magic is relatively unknown in origin. They credit Argentus, but as a whole Sorcerers and adepts are the most suspicious. Wizards are appreciated because of all the help they generally do, but being an outlet for arcane magic with no apparent reason makes people uneasy. It is common for sorcerers to carry spellbook to disguise themselves as wizard as not to bring to much attention to themselves. Where Warlocks are concerned, they are even more detestable than sorcerers. It is recommended that while in populated cities, to avoid the use of Pact and Eldritch magic. There are many records of Warlocks getting lynched while they slept.
Divine Magic is a different story, clerics and paladins are happily invited to any community except Dream Dwarves. Dream Dwarves believe that the earth is what brings them their power and the idea of high beings is unneeded in their opinion, even though many are druids who worship the earth and in turn Forlas.
Hematomancy is the magic of the Blood Sorcerer. A Blood Sorcerer is considered the most vile type of spontaneous caster in Merovia. They use their own blood and some, the blood of their enemies, as weapons. The first Blood Sorcerers was created by Alegra. They are considered blood descendants of her, even if that is inaccurate.
