The Western House Rebellion
The Confluence Mages are also called Gate Wizards, and are very skilled in opening portals. They manipulate the natural gathering points of energy on Tjara. It is by their efforts that the emissaries from various planes are able to come to this world, which has long been neutral ground.
The Confluence Mages command a standing army to enforce the Accord of the Confluences, as well as subdue new confluences for sealing.
