ince The Formation, the Masters as an organization have pushed to move the continent of Ankroth and its people toward a unified collective to help share knowledge and create peace for all. Based out of The Grand Library, the organization has seen many members come through its halls but there are never more than 8 at any one time. The Masters, though not technically a governing body, hold great power over the lords and leaders of the various townships and cities in Ankroth. They are seen as higher than noble and are revered as the most powerful citizens of the continent. Every Master that has been selected for the organization have brought something to the Grand Library that was deemed worthy to be added. This pursuit can be done by any individual of any race or creed as the main goal is to continue to grow the knowledge of the world overall.
The Masters are a body of 8 rotating positions, each spot representing one of the original masters. The leader of this body, known as the Grand Master, is chosen by the surviving members after the previous one passes away. Grand Masters stay in their position until they decide to vacate the position (something that rarely occurs), they have the power taken from them (as per a vote of the other masters), or they die. Supporting the Grand Master are the 7 other chosen Masters, who are also members until death. Only a few in history have left or have been removed prior to their passing.
