Overview

The Magister’s Exchange, as it is formally called, is a collective of mages seeking to foster cooperation between its arcane members and to expand its repository of knowledge. The Exchange provides an outlet for mages to come together for cross-discipline experiments, a growing repository of theoretical and practical arcane applications, and a place where the public can approach with arcane contract jobs. The Exchange’s highest ideals are unity, growth, and experimentation.

The Exchange is not controlled by any single entity, but rather is guided by a pursuit of ideals. Those that join The Exchange have equal access to all resources, free access to The Repository, and equal opportunity for incoming contract jobs. The only two individuals whose roles within The Exchange vary are the acting Constable and Curator, who are voted into service at the end of a three month term. Such positions are tasked with enforcing and upholding the Edicts and Prime Iniquities, as well as upholding contracts and The Repository.

Not only does the Exchange work to benefit the collective itself, but it works to absolve the garish divide between the Divinely Blessed and the general public. The Exchange presents itself as the face of arcane cooperation, and may accept jobs or commissions from individuals outside of the collective, at the discretion of the Curator.



The Edicts of the Exchange
These are the basic tenets of The Magister’s Exchange in which every member is subject to.

⫸ Every member that joins The Magister’s Exchange must sign a binding contract in the presence of the acting Constable and Curator, to be stored in The Repository for the life of The Exchange. This contract is irrevocable and lifelong.

⫸ No magister of the Exchange will partake of The Prime Iniquities, at the risk of death, imprisonment, annulment of magical ability, or becoming victim to their own crimes by the Constable’s hand and select members of The Exchange.
⫸ Successful experiments involving two disciplines, known as gestalts, will be recorded and accessible to other members of the Exchange. Such spells will be given to The Curator to be added to the Repository.
⫸ Edicts and the Prime Iniquities can only be altered by the agreement of both Curator and Constable, with majority agreement from existing magisters.
⫸ All members of The Exchange will be openly noted in The Repository, and any approaching The Exchange for a job have the right to ask who its members are.
⫸ Every three months (OOCly), the Curator and Constable will be voted into acting service.


The Prime Iniquities

The Prime Iniquities are the most abhorrent of misdeeds that any magister of The Exchange can do. Those found in breach of contract and guilty of these Iniquities will find themselves at the risk of death, imprisonment, annulment of magical ability, or becoming a victim of their own crime.

⫸ No magister of The Exchange will irreparably damage, destroy, or permanently alter the metaphysical aspects that define a living person without their conscious consent. Self is sacred.
⫸ No magister of The Exchange will irreparably and permanently alter any sentient being’s ability to express free will.
⫸ No magister of The Exchange will pursue arcane means to kill, or otherwise overthrow, any member of the Alteran Pantheon unless that Deity creates a threat against the continued existence of mortalkind.
⫸ No magister of the exchange will partake in any ritual, spell, or gestalt designed to create a physical portal, nor shall they attempt to reopen portals of old.
⫸ No magister of The Exchange will awaken the arcane abilities within any person or persons without the their knowledge and conscious consent.
⫸ No magister of The Exchange will partake in any ritual, spell, or gestalt designed to nullify, or otherwise, remove the arcane abilities of any mage without the subject’s knowledge and conscious consent outside of the realm of Exchange punishment.
⫸ No magister of The Exchange will create, or otherwise imbue, any autonomous, or semi-autonomous construct in which failsafes for its control or destruction do not exist.
⫸ No magister of The Exchange will dishonor The Repository by inviting outside persons into The Repository, by teaching Repository spells to those who holds no contract with The Exchange, or destroying or unlawfully altering the Repository spells.

The Repository

The Repository is considered to be the sanctum and culmination of The Exchange’s work. It’s purpose is to preserve cross-discipline spells for generations to come, and to allow members of The Exchange to grow and further pursue theoretical and practical application of their arcane talents. It contains resources that are vital to all disciplines and accessible to any that visit, as well as safely stored contracts of every magister within The Exchange.

It is because The Exchange wishes to preserve and protect this knowledge, that gestalts are not recorded on pages or books. Rather, the spells are inscribed on the Repository itself. Because of this, it is most commonly an Animancer or Formist that holds position of Curator to help inscribe the stones.

It is also within The Repository that job listings will be posted. Any magister interested, or able, will be able to see the job and its pay to take for themselves. These postings will be coordinated and placed by the acting Curator.



Contracts

The Magister's Exchange encourages any and all to approach with tasks and contracts that may otherwise be difficult to arrange. To any who have need of a Magister's services, they are encouraged to seek out the Curator of the Exchange to arrange details. Any contracts should have extensive details of the requested service, as well as the payment offered for completion. Payment is given up front to the Curator, and if no Magister accepts the contract, payment will be returned.

Current Contracts:
⫸ None
