Draconis Arcanitorium

The Arcanitorium is a large, domed structure with an etched dragon head for an entrance. One of the oldest buildings in the Magisters, the outer shape of the building has not changed in years. Named after Draconis, an archmage who claimed to be part dragon, who founded the school of arcane magic in Lune, it has stood as a symbol of the arcane arts and served as a beacon for those wishing to study them.

Whether Draconis was truly part dragon or not has been lost to legend, but the importance of his legacy, the Arcanitorium, has not. The building is regularly maintained by and upheld by lower-ranking members and apprentices at the university. Occasionally, they tell rumors of the vast interior. These stories are largely dismissed by the more mundane, as the details they provide could not fit into the single large dome building in the Magisters district. Those with more than a penchant for magic tend pay more attention.

The Arcanitorium is run by a wizard-guild known as the Arcanites. The guild generally only accepts apprentices and acolytes once a year, during the Kola season, although applications are accepted year round. On nice evenings, mid-tier members of the guild have been known to provide free lectures on the fields adjacent to the building, for those curious about the more rudimentary aspects of magic. Occasionally, charlatans, bards, and various stage performers also use these fields for parlor tricks and fanciful shows, due to the fields possessing a magical quality which allows presenters voices to carry as if they were in an auditorium.
