Magi (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
|A "race's compendium" race created by|
Magi have no formal cities, except for the fabled place known only by The Libraries to outsiders, some elves like the Ancient Elves may also know of this place, as they are also deeply tied to magic in general. Having studied anything related to magic for ages beyond memory, it has become apart of them. they often seek new forms of magic, or forgotten forms. simply for the fact that they do not want the knowledge lost. they believe everyone has a right to this knowledge, if they are adept enough as a caster. The Libraries are thought to be in the former lair of a Dragon, deep within mountains. So old in fact there is no tunnel there, you have to know where it is to get there. This is why all Magi are born here, so they have knowledge of it always. You can learn of its location, if brought here by someone who knows. To gain this trust can be hard, unless the most talented mage has shown their merit. They are very similar in appearance to ancient elves, its thought that ancient elves are just old Magi. They have no formal king, but instead a council of elders. it is not known who or what sits on this council.
