Gaiscioch Second Darkness
Rarely seen far from the City of Cyphers, Riddleport’s mysterious and misunderstood cyphermages dedicate their careers to unlocking the ancient secrets of Varisia’s famed monuments. The trappings of ancient cultures fascinate these mages, from obscure runes and abandoned languages to the spells and relics of cultures long forgotten. From their headquarters in Riddleport, members of the Order of Cyphers venture wherever they must to unravel the secrets over which they obsess, traveling from the feet of gargantuan monoliths to the ruins of ancient dungeons, from the lecture halls of their organization to libraries half a world away. Because cyphermages immerse themselves in the lore and nuance of the ancients, they highly value precision and complexity, going so far as to develop spells dedicated to uncovering new information and protecting the discoveries they’ve uncovered.
