I’m currently finishing up writing the 28th Hundred Halls book! With that many books, there is a metric ton of background information that we thought would be fun to share with you. So we’ve decided to create a weekly blog post series called Friday Fun Facts. This week we’ll focus on Arcanium, the first hall I began writing about.


Hall: Arcanium

Patron: Semyon Gray

Established: 1867

Motto: Knowledge is Power

Building: An ancient castle complete with drawbridge named the Antheneum

Arcanium believes in the value of gaining knowledge, not only about the world around us, but of ourselves. Before we can master magic, we must hone the tool the magic originates from, because a poorly trained mage will not only be a danger to themselves, but society at large. Once a student is capable, they may learn the art of changing spells on the fly using lexology, or how ancient runic languages are the key to solving the world’s most difficult problems. Join Arcanium and be a part of the solution.

You can read all about Arcanium in The Hundred Halls series. Trials of Magic, the first book of the series, is on sale right now.
