    If I had to hazard a guess, it's because "Magic Knight" is a career path that would generally require University Level education.

    Not too many higher learning institutions on the steppes and plains.

    Those young adults on the steppes and plains need the opportunity to receive and experience the benefits of higher education!

    Someone, by which I mean someone else, should go see to that.

    Random Minion #4949237: But it's my first day!

    Me: And if you don't hurry up and do what I told you to do, it will be your last day.

    *Random Minion #4949237 gulps and leaves at the speed of rumor*

    Addendum: Would it make more sense for such a person to start out as a barbarian, or a magic knight? And how would you approach either?

    Perhaps you get your AS in Barbarianism from a community college and then transfer to get your BS in Magic Knightery?

    Two methods leap to mind:

    A Barbarian awakens to Sorcery (by which I mean natural magical aptitude as opposed to trained aptitude) at a surprisingly late age. Too old to be apprenticed to the Tribe's Shaman in accordance with tradition, he shrugs and keeps on with his already-started career as a warrior. The walls of flame turn out to be pretty handy in this regard.

    A Warmage, disillusioned with politics and the complexities of city life, joins up with a tribe he was already familiar with due to them occasionally working with his City State as mercenaries.

    I'm definitely adding Barbarianism and Magic Knightery to the curriculum of the world of education I'm building.

    I like the first one. Not enough to steal it, mind, but well enough considering that fact.

    The Barbarian regularly barks random noises as some sort of impromptu battle cry. One day, a particularly obscure series of words causes the head of a chicken; which he's about to kill for food; to explode. The Barbarian finds this new poultry-exploding art to be intriguing, and thus sets about finding what animals he can explode with different war-cries.

    Note: Not all magic, he discovers, is for exploding fauna.
    Yes, I know the voices aren't real. But they do have some VERY good ideas....

    Looking back at my old PC game collection, I recall a lot of memories of the game Descent Freespace...Like mainly WTF are the Shivans in that game.

    I mean they're a mysterious race of aliens that happens to kill off entire races in space battles, enough of a threat to put the main two races of the game, humans and vasudans, to actually stop fighting their own war and join forces, and their tech is wayyyy superior than both humans and vasudans combined even with their big guns. Course, it took a miracle to defeat them by the game's end.

    Then the sequel has them back after 30 years, in which the humans and vasudans have went a huge technology boost with way better weapons and spaceships at their disposal.

    ...The Shivans handed them their asses.

    And there is no third game...So WTF?
