Re: The Imperial Library


"Best mind yer manners round the dame with the red coat, laddy. She's a Librarian. And no, she don't look after books. And I don't reckon one would be stickin' her nose in this tavern unless something bad was afoot. You know old Johnny McClellan? He figured he could throw on a red robe and sneak into their tower once.

We all figured he was dead when he vanished for a week. One day I see him sweepin' the streets, and staring off into space like an simpleton and droolin'. Doctor Abflecks said they robotomized him, whatever that means."


-Old man in a bar


"You'll find most of the classrooms downstairs. The student's library is there too. Now don't go confusing the students library with the Library, which is toward the upper floors of the Spire. The Librarians do most of their work up there so its naturally off-limits. Come along now, the dormitories are just around the bend..."

-Meriwether Jenkins, giving a tour to new students

Re: The Imperial Library


The Imperial Library

The Imperial Library was founded by Emperor Aarus VII over one thousand years ago. It began as a cabal of scholars responsible for archiving historical, scientific and magical knowledge. The organization soon grew to encompass a school of wizardry and arcane lore. In the present day the Librarians also serve as the Emperor's spies and inquisitors, using their wealth of knowledge and sorcery to combat the Empire's enemies.

The Imperial Library is based in a tower called the Spire, found in the Empire's capital of Avendel. Additionally the Spire houses the wizards' academy and a king's ransom in books, the latter of which is available to the public. Rumors also persist of rogue wizards and powerful demons imprisoned beneath the tower.

The Imperial Library also operates the only wizards' academy in the Empire. While some wizards and alchemists of the Empire learn their craft from a mentor or tutor, most have attended the Academy. Students at the academy come from all walks of life, but only those handpicked at a very young age become Librarians. This practice is to ensure that all Librarians remain loyal to the Emperor.

Decades ago when the Empire was wrought by civil war, another school of magic Occultus Verum was built in the north by a cruel elvish witch, called Lilith. The school was captured and shut down by the Library when the Emperor resumed power.
