Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
The infamous archmage Ninagauth is a prolific author, and has taken on several apprentices, though none have yet achieved the fame - or longevity - of their master. Those fortunate enough to have glimpsed Ninagauths' grimoires typically describe the man's diagrams and writing as nearly indecipherable, but the power of the spells held within is undeniable.
