Hell of a Summer
The Manifest Legion has roots dating back before the Last War, but truly came into its own during that conflict. Originally founded in 888 YK by a group of Aundarian wizards expelled from the Arcane Congress for providing military aid without approval, the Manifest Legion embraced their new-found freedom and business model. Today, the Manifest Legion remains the largest independent arcane military force in the Five Nations. The Legion takes its name from the prevalent use of conjuration spells that summon spirits into corporeal form, such as conjure fey or conjure elementals. Though fresh recruits are not capable of casting these spells, the Manifest Legion ensures that they are available for study (and copying into spellbooks, if necessary) for any member who gains the level of ability necessary to do so.
