The Frozen City
The Inverted Pyramid is a mysterious and ancient guild of arcanists (arcane casters) that many within the city consider to be a myth. Their membership roll remains shrouded in mystery, but it most likely includes the most powerful mages in Ptolus and probably the world. For years they have wielded cabal like influence in the city. Their headquarters is said to lie somewhere hidden from normal sight by powerful spells, a secret known only by the highest ranks of the pyramid.
In days past, the Inverted Pyramid was a great foe of the Church of Lothian. When the Edict of Deviltry was issued centuries ago proclaiming all arcane spellcasting to be an evil act, a number of mages gathered to form a secret society dedicated to preserving themselves and their lore. Within the Inverted Pyramid, the members of this guild meet, store their valuable books and supplies, and craft magic items and other creations. The Inverted Pyramid concerns itself with preserving magical lore and all things arcane from those it believes would eradicate such knowledge.
Within the Pyramid there are many ranks flowing culminating in the First of each school, First Evoker, First Conjurer etc. Under the firsts is the council, an unknown number of mages rank among the council who each hold the title of Master. Under the council are the initiates, this last rank are members trusted and vouched for by a Master of the council but ones that have not yet been trusted with the secrets of the Pyramid.
