The Legs of Lolth
The Ordum Ministerium is an association of mages that is highly influential both among the petty courts of the Southeastern Plain and in the academies of the Umber Hills. Many of its members serve as diplomats and high-ranking courtiers in the decentralized states of the south and west, but the Ordum has never had success organizing chapter houses in northern Tagarin. The Ordum is highly exclusive in accepting magic-users into its ranks, but does not discriminate between sorcerers, wizards, druids, clerics, or any other magic-users. Recognizing the prevalence of magic in Tagarin, the Ordum seeks both to harness magic for the good of society while also attempting to keep a close watch on its use, even by non-members.
