The Council of Arcane Law is charged with regulating magical training. The Council monitors who is allowed to train in the magical arts, what enchanted objects are created, what new spells can be researched and things of that nature. The Council's primary duty is to control all magic within the Aukarian Republic and make sure that no Aukarian mage ever is allowed to amass power and become a power hungry dictator. Aukaria can not afford another Sorcerer King.
This group was formed as a direct response to the Sorcerer King's rules and subsequent coup that overthrew him. The Republic vowed never to let any such evil force rise to power again. It was formed in 2392 CY, within just 2 years of the Republic reforming after the Sorcerer King's reign had ended.
