Places of Interest

The Wise Quarter is the home of several prominent schools and libraries, but none are so prestigious as the Arcanamirium, one of Golarion's most well-known magical schools. Scholars and philosophers from all over the world over congregate in the Wise Quarter to teach, research, and debate any topic known to mortals on Golarion.[2]

Other places of interest include: the largest library in Absalom, Forae Logos;[3] the Blakros Museum;[4] and The Silk Castle, the only kite shop within 1000 miles of the city.[5] The proprietor, Vittar Corusec, is often hired to judge special kite-fighting battles in the Irorium during the Gala of Sails and Kraken Carnival festivals held in spring and autumn respectively.[5]

The Wise Quarter is also the home of the sage Akhren Taliart.[6]


The district council who administers this neighborhood is known as the Wise Council.[7] The meeting hall of the Grand Council, along with the residence of the primarch is located here as well.[1]
