The C'thai'ran Cycle
Mordulkin Guild of Mages
The Modulkin Guild of Mages is the pre-eminent academy for magic in Mordulkin. Mordulkin has a reputation for being the “City of Mages” and has maintained this magical domination over the Chessenta region largely through this tightly knit group of magi. Any individual practicing magic in the Mordulkin region must be authorized and obtain a license from the MGM, and their monopoly on magic in the region is so far reaching that every student of the art will at some point need to apprentice with a guild mage, thus nearly every mage in the region is loyal to the Guild. The only exception to this rule are wizards that have been thrown out of the guild due to breaking one of the Guild’s three central tenants: Hoarding of Lore that would benefit the Guild; Flagrantly Disregarding the Command of a Superior; and Irresponsible Use of Magic.
Guild Mages are nominally loyal to the city of Mordulkin, although their primary loyalties are to the Guild. For this reason, magicians attending the royal families of Chessenta’s major cities tend to be hired from outside the region
