Arcanology is a new philosophy on explaining the material world that the people of Utaro live in. While its inception began some twenty years ago, it only recently started to spread like wildfire through the empire. The largest contributor to its spread is the king himself. After mandating that all other religious groups and activities are illegal, Barlock II said that arcanology is Utaro’s official religion. This new religion claims that the gods do not exist and were merely created to explain the mysterious nature of the world. Arcanologist instead believe that world they live in is made of arcane energies and only through the study of magic can people understand the true nature of the world and life itself. While divine power can’t be denied, arcanologists claim that those who gain their power from the “gods” are in reality manipulating arcane energy by being spiritually in tune with the earth.
