School of Wild Wrath was a major faction in the Tiers before Kyros' Conquest.

Background[edit | edit source]

Though it wore the name of 'school' for hundreds of years, the School of Wild Wrath more resembled a mercenary outfit, with its elders more than eager to aim the School's destructive impulses at any foe for the right price. Having studied the many Archons of Fire over the ages (most notably Thousand Embers and the Sun Queen), the School's mages were concerned with little beyond conflict and battle - pursuits that made the School largely hated and reviled. The School of Wild Wrath met its end at the hands of Kyros' armies in the first year of the war. While most of the mages of the Tiers were slow to contend with Kyros' armies, the pyromancers of the School of Wild Wrath were all too eager to join the fight. Far more dangerous than the average Tiersman levy, these fire mages become the focus of a joint Disfavored and Scarlet Chorus assault.[1] Its elders now swear fealty to the Voices of Nerat as the Blood Chanters Guild, and those not granted amnesty by Nerat were rounded up and executed by the Disfavored.[2]

When Thousand Embers, Archon of Fire and patron of the School of Wild Wrath mysteriously disappeared (which is to say, Bleden Mark killed him), the School of Wild Wrath embarked on their famously unsuccessful Ritual of All Fires - an ill-fated attempt to conjure what magical essence remained of their fallen Archon and reconstitute said power within a series of bonfires.[3]

The Ritual of All Stones is adapted from this cautionary tale of a ritual, and as such is likely an attempt to transfer and reconstitute Cairn’s power and essence into a less transient vessel."
