Witch Kings Era (1510 AL - 1600 AL)

Mages hailed as heroes in Escann for defeating Greentide with help of guns, empty Escann makes them prime candidates for ruling

Eventually uber decadence and tyranny/rivalry between Witch kings, Escann becomes very anti-magic

The Empire becomes pretty decadent too since they have good relations with Witch Kings? Those who didnt become Witch Kings were veterans of the Greentide and now are ruling The Magisterium. Increase of overall magical tyranny and right to rule: people couldnt save and rule themselves during the Greentide so its up to mages

Ayo some dank Witch King conquers a lot of shit and then invades the Empire a la Revan, by then The Empire is undergoing attempts of centralization after a long time of decentralized shit, the Emperor is trying to curb the power of The Magisterium and ignoring Ravelian Cults - many Magisters are now Greentide veterans and support the Witch King Invasion

^even more Mage Distrust aka Illuminati
