Home to Mages of all leases of life, the Magical District of Etum houses perhaps the most sophisticated assortment of Magical Artifacts, and Libraries dedicated to the persuit and understanding of Magical Energies. Rivaling Organizations in size, such as the Cowelled Wizards of Amn, the Accadamy has its own Law Enforcement, and Governing Body which maintains wards and protective fields in the district.
District Design and OriginsEdit
The design of the district was bought back from an expedition to the City of the Ancients, this magical Floating City, which rose out of the Eastern Oceans almost 3 years ago is the last testament to the ancient race of Gods which walked among man. Many Ancient Artifacts were found in the city, and the Awe inspiring Achitecture inspired the design of the Magic District. Indeed the very principles of how the District powers itself, is based on the Dimensional Magics bought back from the Floating City.
Towers and SignificanceEdit
The Tower Design, yet another aspect the ancients used, allows maximum energy output from the Towers Core. Magical Foci are kept within the Core of each Tower, and in timed intervals, the foci release bursts of magical energies associated with a specific element. These Magical energies are processed, and fed into a series of Conduits which run through the outer walls of the district. The Energy in its raw form, is used to power the defenses of the district in the form of Defense Crystals. Once the Energy reaches the Central Tower, the energies coalesce into a pure energy not entirely understood. This energy is then dispersed throughout the central tower, and stored for future use.
Experiments in ProgressEdit
The District is essentially a Magical University, this being the case, many young mages are working on a series of Experiments approved by the Council.
