Action - Internal, Strategic (continued action from previous War Mage research but we will list this as yr. 3 of 10 (or more))
Secret Action

Mirish sorcerers finish training about 10 war mages. Further training could result in surrendering some potential control over the War Mages to the Mir or a potential clash of loyalties. And the King, the Opheir and the Brotherhood are reluctant to surrender control to anyone, even w/ their excellent relations with Mir & the potential marriage, the decision is made to use the trained mages, and the recent advancements in weather control magic to create an entirely new type of war mage, possibly able to create localized weather conditions of a battlefield or even create lightning bolts & other natural or weather related phenomenon in combat and out. Each of the 10 trained war mages will train other mages, so the new class of war mages will consist of 30 mages.
