School of Arcane Devices
Rising up out of the plains south of Hoofalls, City Of Lamps is the massive tower of the School of Arcane Devices. The tower is a school for wizards, alchemists and artificers as well as a research facility for the arcane. Rising more than a thousand feet from the surrounding plains, the school and living quarters sits above ground whilst the laboratories are said to delve an almost equal distance beneath the earth. The school and all its research are available to all, as is the impressive store of magic, which funds the operations of the school.
