As Emporer Nujarek continues to tighten his control on the Atlantean mainland, many technomancers who were mainstays of the Atlantis Guild have moved their libraries and workshops to the island of Delphane. Dependent on the empire for a continued supply of magestone, the technomancers still answer the Emporer’s calls to arms. However, Guild traditionalists under the leadership of Magus Alment Lan now subtly declare their true loyalty by calling themselves the Delphana. For now, as the Delphana bring ever greater power to the battlefield, Nujarek excuses their disrespect--but both Emporer and Magus know that with ever-greater power comes an ever-greater chance that the mages will try to retake the throne.
