Euwww, It's Morning
I'm usually not the type who can write on Monday mornings. Maybe I can toss out some worldbuilding ideas or plot ideas. Let's see, Wulf has a secret. He got himself sent to the prison on purpose -- because he's looking for a legendary artifact that is said to be in the city. He's not even sure it exists, but he's desperate enough to give up his freedom to look for it. He's sure that once he finds it, he will find a way out as well. He's hoping to use this artifact to overthrow the Triad of Mages, which has turned from a well intentioned organization to an evil organization that only wants things done their way. He may even be desperately trying to stave off an inquisition. But what if the artifact turns out to be a book of philosophy or something like that? He might, at first, be depressed because he can't see how that can defeat them.

In the past, Wulf may have believed what the Triad believes. He may even have been a member. But he witnessed something that changed his mind. Maybe they want to control who is allowed to use magic because they believe that commoners can't be trusted with it, and when he actually got into the world, he realized there were more commoners he'd trust with magic than mages. Even worse, he saw massive tragedies that could've been averted had commoners been allowed access to a few defensive spells.

Instead of being restrictive, the Triad of Mages could be giving mages too much free reign. This is making the land ripe for rebellion and anti-mage sentiment. But I don't like that idea as much.
