The Verenian Watchers
Ley-scars are physical manifestations of tragedy caused by magic. When a person is betrayed and killed by one they loved with magic, or a person’s life is thoroughly and irreparably ruined with the casting of a spell, or any of a variety of deeply upsetting things is done with the casting of spells or other magical effects, something about the significance of the event causes the arcane energy to scar the land where it occurred. This scar takes the form of unreadable arcane sigils glowing in patterns on the land. When one attempts to remove a ley-scar, either by trying to get rid of any physical portions of its manifestation, or using magic to dispel it, it may appear to work. However, unless incredibly powerful magic is used to dispel the effect, the scar will return over the following weeks.
