The Meralim Academy of Knowledge
The Academy is commonly know as the Meralim Academy of Knowledge. The Academyis also a temple of Ioun, the god of Knowledge. One of his precepts is to spread knowledge in all its forms, and as such, the academy is open to any who wish to learn. For any who wish to gain greater mastery of their mind and body, the Academy is the place to pursue that mastery.
Masters exist for nearly any school of magic or martial skill. There are also pious masters of divine magic. though these are mostly followers of Ioun, the rest of the pantheon is represented as well. In addition to being a school and training ground, the Academy of Knowledge is also the foremost temple of Ioun in Ardensul. Meaning some, if not most, of the greatest minds on the continent call the Academy their homw. As such, many come seeking the council of the Academy’s headmaster, Mandrith Orintar and some of the older teachers. The Academy is a place of great mental, physical, spiritual, and political power.
