The Sorcerers Guild
Even if the guild is not as old as the dawn, its powers are as
old as the Midnight-sun itself. By molding and shaping the weave
of essence flowing through the realm, a sorcerer can invoke
powerful spells and mystical powers.
Sorcerers do not strive for good, neutrality or evil. These
are values that priests and druids may argue about. A sorcerer
does instead seek to gain more influence of the weave of essence.
How this is obtained is of no importance.
The magic of Midnight-sun must be preserved and maintained, and
the flow of essence must continue to weave.
This is the duty of a sorcerer.
Mighty magic was invoked when a great tower appeared overnight
in the village of Everlund. This tower of sorcery is the guild of
sorcerers and a point of focus for the weave of essence.
At the point where magical powers starts to manifest themselves
in a student, he will also develop a magical field to draw his
power from. Unfortunately, the only equipment that completely
interacts with this field are staves. Any other piece of equipment
interferes with this field to various degrees, and causes the mage to
loose significant spell powers.
Recently there has been discovered ways to both reduce this problem
and to take greater advantages of it. Thus the mage society was divided
into the swordmages; mages who seek to avoid the use of the field by
concentrating on lesser, combat oriented spells, and archmages;
mages who have almost completely sacrificed physical equipment in the
belief that the weave of essence is both shield and weapon enough.
Also still there exists the fraction of the
sorcerers though, who thinks things were just fine the way they were.
Those who seek to preserve magic and gain magical powers have
found the right guild.
Members of the guild can roam the guild here.
May the weave of essence flow strong.
