The Mage Academy, they called it.
A school for Dereth's most promising wizards, seething with arcane mysteries.
No one knew how it came to possess the wealth of lore within its depths …
but they came anyway.
They trained under the greatest teachers of the age.
But these halls of learning were also a trap.
Through deception and illusion, the undead lord Rytheran used the Academy to seduce the powerful.
Subtly, he ensnared the wizards.
Day by day, century by century, he taught the sorcerers of Yalain their true lesson …
… to serve the will of the firstborn.
