The nearest Scholia Arcana is located in the Gardens of Ysa. The members of the Scholia Arcana are scholars who make it their mission to study all of the strange and magical findings in Amalur. Adhering to a dogma of rigorous scholarship and thorough experimentation, they are the brightest and most intrepid mages of Amalur. Their pursuit of arcane knowledge and their dedication to the discipline of magic is unsurpassed.
Hundreds of years before the Age of Arcana, three rebels overthrew the sorceress Ciara Sydanus and freed the people of the Plains of Erathell from her oppression. They founded the Scholia Arcana upon the heights of Rathir, where the ancient Dokkalfar traditions of magic-wielding were formalized into a prodigious school.
The Scholia Arcana are organized into various ranks according to how proficient they are with magic. The newest among the order are Neophytes. Those who progress beyond that are promoted to the rank of Docent. Docents who continue further with their training become Adepts of the order. From the Adepts, a select few are chosen to become Savants. Savants are the highest rank a student at the Scholia Arcana can become, having no one above them except the Archsage themself.
Recently, magic is becoming stronger and more out of control. The cause of this growth is unknown, but it is drastic enough that it could reshape the balance of power in Amalur. If someone can change the fate of the Scholia Arcana, then life may return to normal.
