Sword of the North
The greater cities of Baelland hold few universities, all of which are crammed with students who soak up ancient lore and modern theories so that they may better view the world with their own eyes. The Abbey of Wercheg in the north is famed for its attempts to cure the Silver Blight and is held in high regard for allegedly saving thousands of lives. Across the shattered kingdom a variety of fields are studied from history to anatomy to astrology and religious sciences. Of course many students do nothing more than waste their parent’s money and wash out after a year with a few sexually transmitted diseases and a few stolen pieces of scripture from the archives. Dauerkul students are a rare sight, though some exist, having come from affluent Human parentage or having agreed to have themselves be a subject of study in exchange for scholarship. Thurnskine are a rarer sight, with only two recorded students in all history.
