Semular. An independent city-state, built upon an island on the great Tarsen River. A shining jewel upon the land. Rumours say the island was constructed and held aloft by Green and Blue Magic of the highest order. Quite possible, given Semular houses the headquarters of the Corjangaal Order of Sorcery.
In their majestic white tower in the city centre, the Mages take in students from throughout the land, training each young prospect as a apprentice of one of their Five Schools - the Flame, the Land, the Sea, the Sky or the Soul. Upon completion of studies, the young mages are formally sworn in as Disciples of their chosen school, expected to make good use of their power and serve The Order well.
Together, the leaders of each school form The Order’s ruling council, respected throughout the known world for their wisdom, benevolence and political neutrality. Semular is a place of peace for all within its walls, resident or guest.
Lately, however, Semular’s long-standing peace has seemingly been disturbed. A growing series of rumours suggest the presence of a dark, Necromantic cult of corrupted Order Mages, practicing Black Magic and threatening to destroy The Order from within.
The Order’s official stance regarding the rumours is vehement denial, of course. Nonetheless, they grow by the day. Hooded figures. Odd noises in the dark. Strange glows. Missing people. Something is very wrong in Semular.
Perhaps you are an Order Mage, established or in training. Perhaps you work for the Order, in some respect. Perhaps you simply reside in the city. Or perhaps you are a visitor, swept up in the dangerous affairs about to take place. Regardless, these strange occurences threaten every honest soul in the city, and you’re bound to find yourself involved somehow.
