Tax on Magic Spells and Items: New magic spells and items are heavily taxed (1000%) and regulated by many of the local baronies. They fear that magic in the wrong hands may represent a challenge to their power. They horde all spells and items through their “tax” and also closely guard all known resources available to make the spells and items. Without the magical arcane mark of the barony possession of magic items and spells is a serious crime. Those that can afford the expensive travel or brave the dangers alone usually go to the nearby kingdom of Warbridge to craft without restriction.
Exchequer: The chief tax official of each province is the Exchequer who is in charge of tax collection and delivery of the funds to the Duke or Duchess.
