"The Mage's Guild exists to train and maintain the highest standards of arcane knowledge and ability within the realm."
Yet, where is the line drawn? Knowledge, power, personal advancement; all motives that tempt and seduce even the purest of hearts. Ever neutral in the grand machinations of the land, the Mage’s Guild of Xalious has stood for centuries as the prime institute of the arcane, accepting any and all of the varied peoples of Lithrydel, irrespective of background, unified by the purpose of advancing the grand wealth of knowledge and strength that the Guild holds.
And yet, some might feel that the Guild’s ambition is stunted by the morals of its members. Knowledge at any cost? Some might say the mages haven’t the stomach to commit to such a doctrine. These opinions whisper and mutter insidiously in the halls of the Guild, corrupting, twisting the hearts of those that fall prey to the creeping suggestions. And catching the attention of someone, something, hiding in the shadows.
Everyone has darkness hiding in the depths of their soul, skulking in the darkness, lusting for that moment when it can creep out and consume the light. The Mage’s Guild is no different. Dark secrets, long since buried, begin to crawl out from the rotten foundations. For what do we have to fear most, but that which lies within us?
