Seat of Dragon's Tears

Of the 400 ships of the Drgaon Fleet that arrived in the Mazari, 150 ships remained while the rest attempted the perilous journey home to Hankuo. Fully half of those ships, the Dragon's Tears, remained on Lake Seluna, moored at Selunaport. It is nnow as the Seat of the Dragon's Tears, to distinguish it from the portions of the Dragon's Tears that ply the Sea of Lost Souls, battling pirates, and at ports further south looking for signs of the rest of the original fleet. Today, it divides its time between its moorings at Selunaport on Lake Seluna "getting fat and playing politics." Though technically neutral in the politics of the Mazari, the remaining Emissaries of the Dragon Throne are extremely pragmatic, recognizing the value of the Maddock's leadership and the Federation's control of Axes Bithtat.

Some of the best shipyards in Selunaport are owned and operated by the Hankuan. Their original 75 ships now number close to 200, making them one of the largest fleets on teh Lake.

They try to help slaves they spirit away by teaching them the basics they will need to know about their new country and their freedoms. Security is a paramount concern for the Earliers and they seldom use their names, nor do they ask to know the names of those they rescue - in fact they absolutely prefer not to know. They are all "brothers" or "sisters," distinguished from each other by their characteristics, such as, brother grey-beard, sister one-eye, but even those names are not kept for long.

(SG-B) A solemn secular order of researchers, librarians and archaeologists that adheres striuctly to a code of non-interference and neutrality to all politics but that which affects or threatens their collections. The stacks are not public. The Libriohenaum can trace its origins back to the Mazarean Empire, and boasts libraries throughout the world. When the Dragon Fleet returned to Hankuo, amongst the emissaries was a collection of texts and a score of researchers from the Libriohenaeum.

Three ranks in the order include: Researcher (a junior ranking acolyte who helps to find information for people ); Proclaimer (a middling ranking acolyte who determines the value of information and arranges exchanges); Stack Master (a high ranking specilaist in a particular field) Some Stack Master specialists in Selunaport: Stack Masters of the Monotheocrate Order, of Sentar, of Divine Beings, of the Wilderlands Beyond; Master Librarian (the head of any established Libriohenaeum library).

In Selunaport, the Libriohenaeum is situated on an ancient site that incororates existing Mazar ruins into its circular structure.
