The Long Journey - A 7th Sea Campaign
Sorte is one of the rarest magics in Theah and also one of the most dangerous. Found only in Vodacce’s women, practitioners can perceive the “web of fate” and manipulate it. Apprentice users can only read the threads, but the more powerful “Fate Witches” can create and destroy the strands that define how interpersonal connections work. Changing the workings of Fate is risky business and can be harmful to the sorceress performing the change.
Most men in Vodacce intentionally keep women uneducated, so they don’t recognize the amount of power they wield. Prince Lucani has received some flak from other Vodacce Princes about the long leash he bestows on Katarina Lufrano, but none are willing to risk the wrath of a Fate Witch in the employ of the Prince’s personal guard.
