As a junior member of the Mage Guild I seek to establish a clear line of ascension to the
Rune Lord level of Arcane skill. I will uncover any secrets of their hidden lore by
finding and unraveling their previously unknown mastery of the hidden arts. Aided by

mortals and by so doing usher in a new age of intellect.

“To: Aspirant Manborn
From: Canayven and Sheila Heidmarch, Pathfinder Society Venture Captains, Magnimar
We accept your application and will forward it onto the Pathfinder Headquarters. For now we are happy to accept you as our agent.
To be accepted into the Society fully you will need to submit a piece of writing, a chronicle of your experiences. These must be noteworthy and uncover knowledge that is either lost or completely unknown. From your note it seems that you have discovered a thread that may yield valuable information regarding these RuneLords.
We here in Magnimar are aware of the ancient skill of these Runelords in coopting an ancient race of giants and possibly dragons in the construction of these now crumbled and overgrown monuments. The remains of the Irespan, a monstrously huge bridge that once connected the island in the Varisian Gulf begins in Magnimar.
If you are able to uncover more details on how the Runelords accomplished their deeds, or even traces of their magical techniques, this would go a long way to the Decimvirate in Absalom accepting your application for inclusion into the Society. Keep a careful record and draft a chronicle and we will foward this along with your application.
Should the Society deem you worthy to become a full member, they will send an invitation to attend testing at The Grand Lodge, the Society’s Headquarters in Absalom, on the Island of Kortos, in the Inner Sea.
