Rise of the Mordri
School of High Wizardry
Back to Factions
The School of High Wizardry was founded under an Imperial charter to aid in the teaching of any who were gifted with the spark of magic. Originally created to help insure that the Magi and Sorceror’s of the Empire were formally trained and could become upstanding citizens, it was quickly usurped “informally” by the military as a breeding ground for the magical backbone of the army. While any who have the spark, by birthright or formal education, are still accepted freely, those who show a great talent for it are usually fast-tracked into the military’s ranks of what is called the Mage Cadres.
The headmasters of the school are traditionally the highest ranking wielders of arcane forces in the Valdarian Empire, the Council of High Wizards. The Council directs the school and is usually chaired by a representative of each arcane school, with the most talented acting as the spokesperson to the Emperor. The current High Wizard who heads the Council is Gormond. Not much is known about him publicly, as he prefers to live behind a veil of mystery and privacy, and is seldom seen outside the walls of the School.
