Order of the Arcanum: Draco Nativitatis
There is an extremely powerful group of Bulgarian Wizards that are called the Order of the Arcanum. They do let newer members in, but the majority of these wizards come from the Old Order, which means they come from the Dark Ages. Modern governments are not the only ones with secrets to hide. During the Dark Ages, the Bulgarian empire was extremely successful in expanding its border to include a big chunk of the European continent. Sure, they did this through military might; however, they also had a secret operation in which they trained operatives in the ways of the Arcane Arts, to develop magic that could be used in warfare.
These magic that these wizards were able to develop brought great success to the Bulgarian Empire. Unfortunately, when the Bulgarians adopted Christianity as their national religion, this band of magically induced soldiers was disbanded, some of them even imprisoned for their use of magic. The soldiers maintained a loose connection to one another until there was a secret meeting of the most powerful and the Order of the Arcanum was created. It served as a place where the wizards, who were bred by the Bulgarian government in the first place, could come to practice their magic, where they’d be safe.
They began making magical pieces that they could put their magic into. This way they could share their magic with one another and also with those who are not part of the Arcanum. The order exists until this very day, but they still exist in secret, because their magic is so powerful. These days they meet in secret at a secret temple called the Archos. If I’m being honest I don’t know where the Archos is located. I just know that it is located somewhere in Europe and I’m pretty sure that’s where the French electronics company gets its name from. I mean, think about it, is developing electric and computers and electronics nothing more than manipulating the energies around us to get what we want, i.e. pictures, sounds, wireless communication, etc?? It’s all relative.
Anyhow, the Archos is where the Order of the Arcanum meet in secret. It is also where they keep their most powerful magical items that have been created by the wizards of the Arcanum. Recently, we scored a collection of these pieces at an underground auction in Virginia somewhere. I can’t say whether or not these items were supplied by the Arcanum or if they have been taken . I would tend to say the latter, because these pieces aren’t given out like that because it takes a lot of magic to make them. This is merely speculation, though.
When it comes to thinking about the dark ages and magic and wizards and things of that nature, it can hardly be brought up without mentioning dragons. You dragons, believe it or not, can be a lot like djinn. For beginners, they both like to hoard colossal amounts of wealth. Actually dragons beat djinn on this one, because dragons have an appetite for wealth unlike any I’ve ever seen before in my life. It’s a serious affair, really. Apart from this, dragons also have the ability to grant wishes, if they choose to do so. Dragons can also exhibit one or more magical abilities that he will share with you, if captured along with a portion of his massive wealth.
Well, if you don’t want to have to worry about going out and catching dragons, then this piece is definitely for you. This piece is more personal that the other dragon pieces that we offer, because it gives you the unique ability to birth and name all your own dragons. Of course, these dragons will exist in a parallel realm once they are born, but they will be yours. You can always conjure them. They will be ready for you on-demand and will share whatever power they are born into with you. You don’t really have a way to control these powers, but they are all very useful abilities, such as the ability to bring wealth, or the ability grant wishes, or the ability to become invisible, or the ability to be able to shapeshift into a dragon, or the ability to communicate with souls. The list goes on and on.
Each dragon is born with one ability. After you name the dragon, it will begin to grow and bond with you. It’s power will also begin to multiply at an exponential rate. The only pitfall to this piece is that you will have to wait for your dragon to fully mature in order to experience the full force of the power that he is offering you. The upside to this is that you will definitely be able to build a stronger bond with your entity, which means they will become your companions and you will get on with them better than an entity that you purchased. Bottom line is, you can birth as many dragons as you’d like, which means you can develop as many powers as you’d like, and you will do it while developing a lifelong bond to your newborn dragon entities.
