Starfall[edit | edit source]
Located deep in the heart of the Cordonade mountains, Starfall Academy prides itself on being at the cutting edge of Science and Magic. The precise location however is matter of dispute among scholars who are plagued by misinformation. Some sources say it is a castle made of pure obsidian, drinking all but the brightest rays of sunlight that fall upon its black walls. Others claim it to be inside the mountains themselves furthermore they claim that it is not castle but a city built by carving up the mountains themselves. The truth of the matter however is known only to the members of Starfall themselves.
Members are typically recruited after having shown prowess in the fields of magic, the sciences and in rare cases even combat. In some exceptional cases however, the Academy takes special effort to recruit individuals of extraordinary talents by sending one of the few members of the faculty. These rare sightings are the only glimpses those in the know have to Starfall’s upper echelons.
