I still disagree that the aim of the missionaries was to donate magic
points to Dorastor.

Tanisor and Dorastor lie on opposite sides of Dorastor. In
between is the Dari Alliance which is not part of the Empire
of Light. Therefore for the Dorastans to try and set up a
'colony' in Tanisor is bound to run into problems with the Dari

The Vampire Kings were created by the fear of Arkat IMO. The Empire
of Light was similarly blameless yet D:LoD comments:

        'The successes of Arkat in his approach to the heartland of
        peaceful Dorastor caused increasing alarm among the poplace
        and leaders. The people panicked, grasping desperately for
        any remedy, leaving themselves open to the Temptations of the
        dark side. Thus, ironically, Arkat himself transformed a
        hitherto blameless people into the corrupt empire he had sworn
        to destroy'
