About the R'unorian Guild of Librarians
long with the Imperial Court and Guards Council, the Guild of Librarians is one third of the triumvirate that advises the R'unorian Empress. The Guild of Librarians also performs a function similar to both the EnkyklopadiŽ Nybelmarnica or the Compendium of the Santharia in that it gathers and records information in a scholarly fashion for future use.
