If LLorn is known as the city of war and Haven as the city of religion, then Wisdom holds claim to the title City of Learning. With the largest assemblage of educated people, both mundane and magical, in the Eastern Territory, it has become the heart of the Domain of Man. It is also home to the widely traveled and respected brotherhood of scholars, the Circle of the Scroll, the prestigious Institute of Science and Magic, and the powerful and influential magic guild, Tri-Arcanum. As the “unofficial” capital of the Domain of Man, Wisdom is host to the entire 7th Army and the administrative juggernaut that keeps track of the member cities, kingdoms and states that comprise the Dominion. Twice each year, representatives from every Charter member of the Dominion gather in the House of Man to resolve disputes, pay taxes, receive petitioners wishing to sign the Charter of Dominion as well as conduct other business of state. (The original signed copy of the Charter is kept at Wisdom.)
Wisdom is an old city and has seen continual habitation for over 700 years. Contrary to what one may think, most buildings are not exceptionally old. The oldest is the House of Man, a large, domed structure reminiscent of the Winter Palace in Southwatch that is just over 300 years old. Most of the buildings elsewhere are between 10 and 100 years old, with many even newer. Buildings are constructed of both wood and stone, with the wealthier inhabitants having more stone and the poorer folk depending more on wood and plaster. The King has decreed that slate shingles must be used as a fire prevention measure.
