The Halls of Artifice
The Volion Chapter is allied to the House of the Blood Red Sun and specialises in the creation of Artifice through Lore for the protection of the College.
The flames fuel a forge that no power can quench.
Head of the Volion Chapter and the Department of Artificery – Rega Noi
Rega was a long time member of the armed forces of the Royal Basin, although she trained at the College in her youth. Stories of her youth at the College have circulated among the students for year, according to rumour she replaced control crystals from a training automaton with ones that she had crafted herself. The automaton in question ran amuck through the College before finally bursting into the study of Lord Imravin himself. More startling than the fact that she continued as a member of the College was that she was, supposedly, only seven years of age at the time. She refuses to comment even to this day. After she left the College she formed part of a team that produced and repaired specialised automatons that saw action in various wars over her long life (born 1959). She was almost mortally wounded in an action to recover one of her apprentices in the Rhygahrean Wars and retired to teach at the College fulltime.
Volion Chapter is the living Heart of the College; if the power of the Zaek Haqire are the strength of the Remyrukhs and the Zemyoks then the Volions are the strength of all that occurs here. This Chapter teems with highly skilled folk who are capable of taking that power and binding it artifice that others would spend a lifetime struggling to comprehend. The Voilion Chapter takes only those with the keenest of intellects, naturally gifted individuals who are able to read the lines of power almost naturally, who find them malleable in their hands and put them to whatever purpose they wish. Here in the halls of Artifice these worthies find the walls alive with ancient texts and works of wisdom that will guide them through their tasks. Remyrukh, Zemyok and Terrukh alike find their way to the Volion Chapter and equally they are prevalent on the field, this Chapter providing the largest portion of guildsmen supplied for the Table of Swords.
