I’m not sure.   Wouldn’t rejuvenation build up ground?

I like thinking of malices as a result of the powerful magicians being short-term greedy at the expense of the long-term, and it got away from them, with obvious parallels with our world today.

But there were some who were able to create the Lakewalkers to counter this.   They were a conservative response that has worked for a long time, but times change.   Maybe it’s time to go to the next step.
