An intriguing mystery about the magic of the Malkioni faiths is that sorcer does NOT derive from the Invisible God directly, but from so-called "humanist" sources. Sorcery is a skill which can be trained up without knowing much at all about the Malkioni religion. One does not have to belong to the "one true faith" (whichever that one is), and indeed, there ae renegade malkioni sorcerors who are not wizards, i.e. the priesthood of the Invisible God. This has always struck me as a bit peculiar; I'd have expected something a little more like the Saintly cults in such a medieval setting, but not a skill-based magical tradition.
