Ways of the Seven
Council of Mages
The Council of Mages is the the ruling body of the Invisible College. The Council consists of a Chancellor, sixteen magisters (two from each of the schools of magic), the rectors of all major universities and academies, and the Scribe of the Empire. Council-members are elected from among the fellows of the Invisible College. As a body, they control the teaching of magic at academies and regulate the use of magic in the Valuan Empire. They are empowered to establish committees charged with enforcing such regulations, occasionally by dispatching agents if direct intervention is required. The advice of the Council is held in high regard by the Imperial Diet and the Emperor’s court, both because of the power they wield and the respect commanded by powerful mages.
