The Dark Isle
An ancient order of Wizards, Mages and Warlocks that has existed for centuries. Easily identified by their dark purple robes, they command great respect, what with the Archmage answering directly to the King. Their headquarters are in Anyr, within walking distance of the Court. Keepers of secrets and protectors of the realm, they are not to be taken lightly.
They have a four-tiered rank structure. At the top, the Archmage, generally the most powerful (or wisest) mage of the order. Below him, a number of Magisters, elders among the order and privy to some of its deepest secrets. Below them, the Arcanists. These are the general members of the Arcanum, and make up the greatest numbers. Finally, below these are the Acolytes. Arcanists in training, they spent up to a decade locked away within the bowels of the Arcanum, learning about history, nature, religion and of course the arcana. In total, the Arcanum numbers around fifty.
