Twilight of the Varidian Empire
Located off the southern coast of the Varidian Empire, Noviomagus Reginorum is equal parts prison, asylum, and institute of the arcane. Built upon the Scavian Peninsula on sheer cliffs and few beaches to land upon, it is an easily defendable bulwark, wedged between the treacherous Scavian Sea and the steep cliffs of Varo. Generally, the people who are sent there are criminals from the murky alleys of the empire, or those witnessed dipping into the knowledge of the Precursorae. Few secrets and far less news ever reach Noviomagus Reginorum, and those that call it home(or hell, depending on whom you interview) have grown to like it that way.
