The C'thai'ran Cycle
Luthcheq is one of the major cities in the Chessenta region and one of the most enigmatic. The ruling family of Luthcheq, the Karanoks, are all members of the mysterious Cult of Entropy, a secretive group known for their hatred of magic. As such magic is banned in Luthcheq, and a huge project completed for the purposes of damping all magic and magical effects within the city limits. On top of this, anyone found entering the city with any magical artefacts is subject to imprisonment, or even in some cases, hanging. The items themselves are confiscated and it is believed they are held by the Karanoks somewhere below the palace, untouched and unused.
