A Rising Tide
Once the most powerful faction institution in all of Louria, the Collegium Maia was the arcane college of the kings of Ariada. Every scion of the royal family was schooled at the college being taught both classical education and the arcane.
When Ariada was destroyed, suspicion fell upon the Collegium in large part due to the college’s survival — the building remained untouched, though now isolated upon a jagged island of new stone. In the intervening years members of the Collegium have been hunted to near extinction, while the old college campus molders into ruin in its isolation.
