-Before ​[[zioth:​event:​battle_of_the_magics|the Battle of the Magics]], Brundash was the mysterious home of a world-wide organization of magi. Even then, few could claim to have seen it, and no one would say where or even what it was. //​Brundash//​ was a term used both for the place, and the organization.+Before the Battle of the Magics, Brundash was the mysterious home of a world-wide organization of magi.

-[[zioth:​pc:​johannes]] ​leads a group trying to escape to Brundash in a vision in [[zioth:​turn:​078|Turn 78]]. His name in the vision is Albederan. He travels with other mages -- a woman with knee-length white an blond hair, a man named Viillio, and an unknown number of others. Another man, Helbedar refused to come on the journey. They are being hunted by huge winged creatures. "Each one was ten feet wide, with wings adding another ten on any side. Their bodies were rounded and flexible, with necks capable of rising above or dropping below with ease. The necks ended in long-beaked heads, which Albederan knew could crack bone, and could gouge out a man's eyes or heart in seconds."​{{zioth>​t,​78}} A fight ensues, which the party of magi wins. The creatures vanish, revealing them to have been illusory or summoned. The woman remarks, "This close to Brundash, everything has some magic."​ Then a whole hidden force appears.

It is unclear whether Albederan survives the trip.+Johannes ​leads a group trying to escape to Brundash in a vision in [[zioth:​turn:​078|Turn 78]]. His name in the vision is Albederan.

-Hal tells [[zioth:​pc:​sahlman]] ​about a place called Brundash: "This one here,” he pointed to a relatively new-looking book, “is a copy of an original work from the mid five hundreds. Like everything else from that time, it's riddled with mythological and magical references, but if you wade through all that, you'll find one section where it talks about a place called Brundash, which was supposed to be a safe haven against the next Zioth. I've never seen another reference to it, though, so I assume it was destroyed like so much from that time, or the founders gave up." ... "​Brundash was supposed to be founded by a large group of natural philosophers,​ or wizards perhaps. It's hard to tell." {{zioth>​t,​85}}+Hal tells Sahlman ​about a place called Brundash: "This one here,” he pointed to a relatively new-looking book, “is a copy of an original work from the mid five hundreds.
