November 27th, 2023

  • Location: Across the hills and dales of the City-State of Taodeas 

  • Population (approx.): varies 

  • Brief: From the dawn of time on Aenwyld, unique individuals have possessed the ability to “magically” alter reality. As time passed, “magic-users” refined and defined the use of the essence from raw burst of changes to regular and teachable enchantments. As these early users encountered each other, they began to form communities of fellow practitioners of varying size, scope and complexity from simple ritual circles to the world and plane-spanning organization known today as the Arcane Guild. The Guild, like the traditional Artisan and Services Guilds, provides a supporting structure for training, regulation, research, communication and protection for magicians of all types and levels of skill. But to do this, the Arcane Guild needs to conduct a census of users of magics on a regular basis. This year, for the City-State of Taodeas, the Master Scholar, Mister Zariya Savindy has volunteered to conduct the census. Accompanied by his companion and bodyguard, the High Man warrior Jorgenson of Ketteridge, he will traverse the City-State seeking casters both old, to remake their acquaintance, and new, to introduce them to the Guild. 

  • Geography: Zariya, the last of the Savindy Tribes, has travelled extensively across the two continents. Based, currently, in the City-State of Carasta, he decides to depart by road eastward and then takes the combined river-lake-canal crossing of the Narrows to Taop Bay. From there a short sailing voyage brings him from Taosport (#17) to Matumouth (#120) where he will begin this period’s census.  

  • Next Article: Over the course of this week, we’ll present some of the notable peoples, locations, happenings and plot threads encountered by Zariya Savindy during his travels in service of the Arcane Guild.
