The Imperial Warcaster is an Imperial title in the Military Council created by the Imperial Senate during the Summer Solstice 384YE.


The Warcaster is responsible for coordinating the arrangement of magical assistance for the armies of the Empire. The holder of the title is also expected to use their powers to liaise between the Conclave and the Council.


Addressing the Military Council

The Warcaster has the right to make a address to the Military Council once per summit. To use this power, the Warcaster must inform the Herald of the Council that they wish to make an address, which will then be added to the agenda for the next Council session.

The Key of Commitment

Heralds of Zakalwe provide the Imperial Warcaster with three crystalline tokens of the Hunter of Tides for as long as the Imperial Conclave maintains their interdiction on enchantments that make soldiers "savage". The crystalline tokens can be each used once to provide additional ranks to a performance of either Clarity of the Master Strategist or Carve the Crystal Guardian. For more information see the Hiearchs of sea and sky wind of fortune.
