Brief History

The Avlis Tower University is an institution dedicated to research and the distribution of knowledge to the people of Avlis. It was originally founded as the Magus Tower University of Mikona by Master Astoroth Dyacon. After his disappearance the University was led by Master Sage An'gora Gend where it flourished for many years. In order to attract a more diverse set of faculty members and student body, the name was later changed to the Avlis Tower University. After An'gora disappeared the University was left without a leader. This fact, coupled with the untimely death or disappearance of several of the key faculty members, left the University in a serious state. Not wishing the institution to crumble before him, Senior Sage Kered Rose took on the responsibilities of the Master Sage, but only took the title of Senior Sage. Rose worked diligently to keep the University in operation through the many years he acted as leader. Many years later Willem Lightheart sought membership. After several lectures and events run by Willem to promote the University, Senior Sage Rose took the title of Master Sage, only to name his replacement as Sage Lightheart and immediately stepped down, making Sage Lightheart the next Master Sage.


Many books have been published, lectures given, essays written, and events hosted all under the umbrella of the ATU with the sole goal being to teach those uneducated of the world. An observatory exists on the roof of the tower and is open to the public as well as most of the other facilities there within the tower walls. In addition to the observatory is a great library with areas for study and research as well as a large lecture hall set up for public debates and lectures.

One may seek membership by contacting Master Sage Lightheart at the University or speaking with any of the active Sages. Ranks and position titles are awarded based on services performed for the University.
