The History

For centuries, Oxford University of Magic at Yarnton Manor was a home to magical study.  They say it was built into impossible dimensions, no one was sure quite how many rooms there really were! Stories abounded that some classrooms were only accessible through the secret entrances hidden around Oxford, or through other magical portals.  Fables suggested that within the college bounds a door might open where no door existed before.  Records show that some rooms were used for teaching and experimentation, others for feasting, socialising, or quiet contemplation.   It was a place steeped in history, mystery, and secrets, but in 1875 it became even more of a puzzle when it simply vanished.

The Conflux has been lost for over a hundred years, but one month ago it reappeared.  This unexpected return has caused much excitement across the magical world.   This excitement grew even more when the faculty of the Oxford University of Magic announced they had discovered the location of the Grove of The First Spell – one of the fundamental secrets of magic.  The faculty have invited prominent communities and organisations from across the Witchard world to send delegates – academics first and foremost, but other thinkers as well – to the first Conclave of Witchards, Sorcerers and Spellcasters to be held in over a century.

Each delegation has its own identity, morals, themes, goals, and objectives.  Each delegation will host practical workshops and demonstrations to teach others their magic or display their research.  The delegates will judge the academic conclusions and theories of others to award points for The Prospero Prize.
