The Dork Circus
The White Lotus Academy
Former city-state along the Trade Road in northern Mithyria, located just outside Raj Tal with Freeport to the east, along the banks of the Banebridge River. Now abandoned, although occasionally occupied by fearless treasure hunters and adventurers.
The White Lotus Academy started millennia ago as a simple temple to Corellon, god of arcane magic, built by his Eladrin worshipers. Over time, the worship of the patron of arcane magic turned to the study of magic itself, and the growing academy became a center of learning known throughout Mithyria. It grew until it rivaled the size of Raj Tal, withstanding the tests of war, natural catastrophe, and time itself for hundreds of years, until a few reckless students ultimately brought about its downfall.
Unsatisfied with the traditional Academy Masters, these students, Mejik Spellspinner, Alhora Twiceborn, and Darenius Darkcloak, formed their own society, the Cabal of the Eye. Within six years of the Cabal’s founding, the White Lotus Academy was mysteriously sealed under an impassable magical dome for over a fortnight. When the dome suddenly disappeared, the academy-city was a corpse-strewn ghost town…and the Spellscarred Summoner, student of the Cabal, claimed credit for its total destruction.
