The Crystalline Circle resided within the city state of Shallam, advancing Good and Order by practicing three cardinal Virtues: Purity, Charity and Perseverance.

The House became a triumvirate in the year 423 AF, but this was quickly demolished in 438 AF and was replaced with an elected autocracy. The House itself was destroyed along with the Jewel of the East in 612 AF, the debris of its shattering drifting to the bottom of the sea.


Founding

The Crystalline Circle was founded as the Magi guild in 254 AF by Taranis, born Daedalan 21, 184 AF. Once a notable druid, Taranis left the guild and became a prominent citizen of Shallam, serving as advisor to the Sultan. In the year 254 AF, he found the Crystal Caverns and rediscovered knowledge of the Magi. He utilised these newfound skills to found the guild.

Destruction

When Bal'met, the Worldreaver destroyed Shallam in 612, its Houses were also destroyed. Crystalline members escaped their shattered circle into exile, following the rest of the survivors to refuge on New Hope before assisting in the founding of the new city-state of Targossas in 623.
