Raminus Polus is an Imperial Master Wizard at the Arcane University in the Imperial City. He is one of the main administrators of the Guild. He also gives advancements in rank with the exception of Arch-Mage, rather he will acknowledge you as Arch-Mage. At the end of the Necromancy Purge he is the only surviving member of the Council of Mages as Bothiel is not part of the council.
Connection with the Mages GuildEdit
Raminus Polus provides many amenities to the Hero, as do the rest of those at the Arcane University. He offers "recharge" for their magical items. He also offers advanced spells from his personal inventory of spells, and bestows and promotes ranks to them, until becoming Arch-Mage.
He has much to say about everything, offering dumped all of the time about various things; but of course, due to his tie with the Mages Guild, and its Faction, he usually says something about the legality of Necromancy or the resigning of 'half of the council of Mages'.
He sits and reads for most of the day or talking to Bothiel, Traven and Jeral Ibsen. The Hero must give him 20 Fly Adamantia's and 20 Dragon's Tongue if they break the Guild law and is kicked out. To join, he will tell them they must speak to each proctor of the Guild Hall in each of the eight major cities.
