The collective name given to the main inhabitants of The Great Desert, the Pyres are a society of fire mages, congregating mostly in their capital of Pyria and founded by a mysterious lost soul known as " The Wanderer." The wanderer is a mysterious figure wrapped in legend who taught the founding members of the Pyres their craft. Also to the wanderer’s name is the creation of a fantastic magic academy, built out of majestic stained glass. Glass spires spiral upwards towards the unflinching sun as a spiderweb of glass tubes transports heat and fire throughout the city, fueling it’s night time activities. You see, the very first thing the Pyres learned to do was conduct all of their business at night, to avoid the scorching rays of the sun. While their magic could indeed protect them from the majority of the heat, it is considered foolish in their society to waste energy on keeping the body cooled when working at night accomplishes the same task with zero effort.
