Thale Wizards Guild
After much debate and endless meetings, the wizards of the three kingdoms decided to form a guild, thats when the tedious discussions really started.
After a year of debate they finally decided on a location, and that Orsino Valenti would be the founding head of the guild, mainly as he had the kings ear and could obtain the most funding. To his advantage his employment as the kings wizard meant he would not have time to meddle and was therefore an ideal candidate. Not that Orsino wanted the job, but after seeing the lack of organisation skills of his fellows, and being pushed into it by the king, (who providing the most money chose the name of the guild,) he really had no choice.
Orsino didn’t really want a tower, he thought them a trifle oestentacious, but tradition is tradition and a tower it was. Building finally commenced in 4580 in the remote Kashjera mountains (a site of multiple lay line crossings and magical significance). At first the local village of Heddenberg was sceptical, but the influx of builders and the money they brought changed there mind, and the small community swelled and became prosperous.
Five years in the construction the Thale Wizards Guild finally opened its doors on the feast day of Kalen Soma, 3 Snowmont 4585.
Each of the schools occupies a level of the tower and there is a magical lift leading from the tower entrance to the reception chamber.
Each of the eight schools of wizardry has a head who sits on the council and vote on the matters at hand, the head of the guild has the casting vote in case of a tie.

Entry into the guild
Applicants need to be able to cast at least third level spells, and be recommended by an existing member, the decision on approval is by the head of the school which they wish to join. There is a joining fee of 1,000gp and an annual subscription of 100gp.
Entry is to wizards only, however honorary membership to other arcane spellcasters such as warlocks and sorcerers can be granted by the head of the guild.
The head of the schools are chosen from the senior mages who vote amongst themselves, they are not necessarily the most powerful spellcasters.
