Return of Hadrach
Wizard School of Draima
The largest educational complex in the world and one of the Seven Wonders of Yerth, The Draiman School of Wizardry and Arcane Arts most consistently produces the most powerful wizards in the world. The school’s libraries are vast, the collections having gathered books from across the world. The librarians claim every book has been copied and stored to protect the knowledge, and they often claim that if something is not in the libraries of Draima, then it’s not known to mortals.
More impressive than the libraries, the school is a fortress unto itself. The school is surrounded by a circular wall, 60’ tall and 50’ thick, the entire area about 1/2 mile in diameter. The entrance is a massive gatehouse, the doors a bas relief sculpture entitled Triumph of Reason. The School itself is a massive central tower with several tiers and sub-structures built off of it. The eight schools of magic each have a sub-tower that is attached to the main structure, and are arranged clockwise around the school (starting on the west side) Divination, Conjuration, Abjuration, Necromancy, Illusion, Enchantment, Evocation and Transmutation. This layout reflects the Draiman wizards concept of opposing schools of magic.
If an applicant is accepted to the school, it is usually done when they are ten or eleven and kept there until they are able to pass a number of tests. The school itself allows non-magic users in but once a year for the citizenry to petition the wizards of the school.
For those that attend the Draiman School of Wizardy and Arcane Arts to become a Sanctioned Wizard they are encouraged to choose a study track: Career, Research, or Warrior. This decision will guide their course of study, graduation requirements, and their likely ultimate career path.

Most Graduates of the Draiman school exit as level 2 Wizards, but there are some prodigies that graduate as level 1 Wizards. Occasionally, a candidate is held back until they are higher in level. These are most commonly Career-track wizards failing the Combat trial. Occasionally, an adventurer may attend the school to become a Sanctioned Wizard. These individuals are usually kept separate from the bulk of students, and are put through an accelerated course. They are usually able to graduate in 1 year.
