Wise Quarter

The Wise Quarter is to learning and education what the Ivy District is to arts and entertainment, the center of Absalom’s contributions to the subject. The greatest scholarly institutions of absalom are found within the Wise Quarter, and to encourage this growth the Wise Council waives the taxes of any institution dedicated primarily to the preservation or distribution of knowledge. Of course, the Wise Council also charges a small tax on every student in the district, but since schools pass those costs onto their novices, that cost does little to dissuade them from expansion.

Though there are many acadamies in the Wise Quarter, without a doubt the largest and most prestigious is the Arcanamirium, one of the most famous schools of magic in the Inner Sea. The influence of the Arcanamirium cannot be overstated, and while only a few faculty are on the Wise Council, there is no doubt that if the masters of the largestschool of magic in Absalom want something about the district to change, they are likely to get their way. Of course, the Arcanamirium is also under the ever-watchful eye of Lord Gyr, who is first spell lord fo the city, which saves the Wise Council from contending with too many unreasonable or petty requests.
