THE SAGE'S MEDALLION

The Sage's Medallion

Image description.

Most institutions of higher learning, including the Ximax Collegium, the New Santhalan-Universality, and the Bard's School, mark the graduation of their students and questers after knowledge in some physical way. A gold "chain of office" and its accompanying pendant are the formal insignia granted to a serious scholar when he is given the full title of "Sage". This particular image depicts the personal property of the wise Compendium overseer, Artimidor Federkiel. Shown life-size, the pendant glows with aurium highlights, set off by the rhubite eye of the feline etched at the top. An additional large gem is placed between the two figures at the lower half of the medallion. Picture drawn by Bard Judith.
