The World of Bellus
On Sorcery and the Veneficum
It is lost to us exactly when the Patronii were able to bestow the gift sorcery upon us. The Patronii know when but that is irrelevant as they do not discuss such things with us. All we know is that it is they who bestow the gift and they (or death) can take away the gift of Sight. Magi is all around us. Think of it as a shallow puddle that covers the entire planet. Almost all of go about our daily lives never knowing it even exists. To the Venefica it is the substance they use to practice Sorcery.
