The study of magic is not a science it's not an art, it's not a religion. Magic is a craft. When we do magic, we do not wish and we do not pray. We rely on our will and our knowledge and our skill to make a specific change to the world.
-Archibald the Wizard, Year 5794, Dragonlake
Mystra the ArcanistLawful
Mystra is the goddess of magic and also of music, arts, mages, arcane and knowledge. She is depicted as a white woman, red hair, wielding a staff.
- Magic is everywhere and everything. It creates order and structure out of nothing.
- Strive for knowledge for knowledge will show the way forth.
- Judge not people based on social rank, but instead on what they have accomplished.
- Clerics of Mystra's position in the clergy can be surmised by the number of stars on their neck and cheek. An initiate has one star, the high priest has seven stars..
