Purpose: to study and encourage study, growth, and understanding of all kinds of magic, its history and its development.

The Arcanica Guild is one of the more prominent and powerful of Guilds in the Dairswyn. There is not a day that goes by that magic is not implemented in the average citizen’s daily life. Your food is cooked by magic, your transportation is facilitated by magic, your waste is taken away by magic. Everyday fey and humans buy and sell magic, they deal with arcane energy and use said energy to go about their lives. This ebb and flow of magic would not be possible if not for the Arcanica Guild.

The Arcanica Guild also has a prominent presence in the Dairswyn. No matter where you are you can reach a Guild Office and there is practically a Guild sponsored Magical Sundries shop on every corner. They also employ many of the Dairswyn’s citizens and it is often in this Guild that you will find the rank and file Fey working to make their ends met.

While much of current magical theory has been mapped, there are still new discoveries happening. Monthly submissions for magical patents go through the Guild Offices, and interviews/pitch meetings must take place before testing. If the concept is approved it is moved on to rigorous testing, sometimes taking years for review. After testing, the Guild debates whether it’s plausible/viable to distribute. If so, there is a fee paid the inventor and the Guild takes over production. If the application is denied at this stage the materials/information are confiscated, archived and the applicant is issued a “Red Tag” order indicating a rejected submission. However, if it is decided that the proposal presented constitutes a danger to the general public, the Guild may find grounds to confiscate the inventor and their research for further questions and study. Often this process, called being “White Tagged” ends with the knowledge placed in deep archive (or destroyed) and the inventor/researcher placed either under arrest or under the Arcanica Guild’s watchful eye as a “Special Employee”
