The Blackmarsh CircleEdit
The Blackmarsh Circle is an organization of female magic casters in Lordaeron. It was founded by Lady Tamsyn Beauregard as a social, educational, and charity group. Fearful of another Black Purge, Tamsyn hopes the Circle will improve the reputation of “witches” in Blackmarsh and prevent future violence.
The Circle meets every month or so in Lianna. Tamsyn’s office, with its books, magical reagents, and alchemical concoctions, is open to members of the Circle who wish to use it for research or a quiet place to study.
Those seeking membership should inquire with Lady Beauregard in Lianna.
The goals of this group are thus:
- Assist the less fortunate in Blackmarsh through acts of charity.
- Study the magic and creatures native to Blackmarsh.
- Promote the acceptance of women’s magic and provide training for girls and women who seek magical knowledge.
- Create bonds of trust and cooperation between the Circle and the Holy Church, Royal Army, the nobility, and other organizations.
- Establish a sisterhood where women can make friends, share magic, and support each other.
The Book of ShadowsEdit
To better share magic, record lore and research, and offer improvements and alterations to each other’s spells, the Circle is compiling a Book of Shadows. It will be available to all members of the Circle to study and contribute to.
