Year 57 AC
A school near the Tsalagi Mountains named Dragon's Fire for mages is opened. There are three students the first year, but they hope to expand to let anyone who wants to learn the Arcane to do so. The priests of Targon from the near by temple are helping with the effort.
A man claiming to know the will of the Gods wanders Ariella, hoping to gain followers to his cause. Some call him crazy, some call him just a charlatan wanting money, others seek to kill him.
