Miskatonic University

Miskatonic University, located in Arkham, Providence is not a "normal" university. It is a place for Magic users of nearly all types to study and research magic. Clerics of various worship work to communicate and study the various planes of existence and those that inhabit them. All Magic Users and Clerics are welcome to study, some are hired to teach and/do research on behalf of the university.

PC's who want to "establish" themselves at higher levels but do not want to set up their own shop may elect to try to work for the university.

Occasionally, the University will contract with adventurers to obtain items, discover locations, trap exotic creatures, etc... on their behalf.
