Wizards of the Kowl
Native to Drithkowl, the largest surface city of the gnome-kind, Wizards of the Kowl are skilled practitioners of the arcane. With no real allegiance to the city itself or the surrounding lands, many locals refer to them as Cowled Wizards because of their semi-secretive nature and seemingly selfish ways. The Wizards of the Kowl would only protect Drithkowl from attack if it immediately threatened their order or posed a risk to a significant number of their own. Their interests lie inward, they quest for greater power and knowledge of the mysterious arcane. The Wizards of the Kowl see themselves as non-violent (usually) rivals of their southern neighbors, the Edril Mage Circle, as well as the “all-knowing, all-encompassing,” Dalnorum. Their headquarters is located inside of a magical castle known as Lazandroth.
