tl;dr[edit | edit source]

Blackmage switches from Centrists to Revivalists.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Blackmage narrates about his arrival at Wistram. He’s being personally tutored by half-elf Archmage Feor, earning some resentment for this favour shown to him. He’s tasked with and fails so far to identify any Earthers among the newly arrived students.

At the banquet he’s party to discussions about ‘movies’ and questioned about Earth. He’s aware of the different factions and how his patron and his centrists have power over him. He joins the other student and contacts secret brokers Beatrice and Montressa to organise a a distraction. He uses that to slip Feor’s leash and discover a major lost laboratory. Montressa, having secretly followed, leverages his lack of ability to secure and make use of the lab in conjunction with her connections to move Blackmage and the secret laboratory’s knowledge to their faction instead.

The revivalists are lead by Archmage Nailihuaile, a lamia. The next day she discusses their new position as Blackmage’s patron with him. A boat arrives with new students, but also many Earthers aboard, latter in particular welcomed by the revivalist faction.

Feor considers how to proceed, revealing access to sources such as Falene and Typhenous, and that he’ll send teams out with certain tasks, among them being one for Liscor to retrieve a certain magical door.

    • The fourth bounded towards him, a creature of stitched flesh and shadows. It rotted as it bared its teeth, its jaws opening wide, wide—
