Does the very land hold a life force that can be sucked dry, just as a vampire drains blood from his victims? There is an ancient art that is resurfacing. A terrible lore that allows spell casters, both Arcane and Divine to rape the land of its very life to fuel their magic. Blight Magic, it is called and it is a quick and terrible road to power. Many have justified the use of such magic, pointing out that farmers take from the land to feed the people, homes have need of the land to be built, and trees are cut down to provide warmth in the winter! Is this so very different? The answer can only be seen in the practitioners, who suffer over time from a corruption that only and evil power can bring.
