The Academy was established as early as the Elves era. Its main purpose is to teach humans how to use magic. In the human era, the school was taken over by Carl. He selected talents to continue working on magic. Nominally the Academy is in the anarchy-neutral area, but it is still subordinated to Gloriville. Whether it is the development of new magic or the subsequent technology of illusion stone, Gloriville has the power to prioritize and monopolize.
Nevras is located at the starting point of the Sacred Eight Peaks, in a shape of a peninsula. With the highest mountain lake in the world, it is located at the northernmost tip of Tierra, so the temperature is lower than other regions. In the extreme north, it is snow-covered for long term, and the area that is close to the southern coast is suitable for living. It is also famous for its outdoor hot springs, but with its strong corrosive nature, it is only used by local people as a heat source.
Although politically owned by Gloriville, the Academy also obtains Palata’s financial support with it being in a politically neutral region. Despite the opposition from Gloriville, the royal family does not seem to have any opposing opinion about this.
The polar snowfield is part of the peninsula. With its location at the northernmost, and the effects from Lake Ice Tears, polar snowfield is the coldest area in Tierra. In the Elves era prior to the formation of the polar snowfield, there were many elves living here; many ancient buildings remain intact. To uncover these precious heritages that have not yet disappeared, the Academy actively recruits adventurers to explore the area, but it seems that the hidden dangers in the deeper parts of polar snowfield are not just the cold.

Whether it is the development of new magic or the subsequent technology of illusion stone, Gloriville has the power to prioritize and monopolize. Because of the cold in the Elves era, the elves manipulated and told the Academy to lift up from the ground and stay in the sky forever for getting more sunlight to reserve its temperature.
Lake of Ice Tears
History of Lake of Ice Tears can be traced back to the Elves era of the holy spirits defeating the evil spirits. According to the literature, after the evil spirit, Ottovia, was sealed in the Eight Peaks, the saints saw the tears shedding of sorrow and unwillingness. Over time it gradually converged into the lake at the end of the eight peaks. Lake of Ice Tears is cold and biting. No living creature seems to able to survive in it. It is believed that Nevras is also responsible for the year-round snowy climate.
In the hundreds of years during the formation of the Lake of Ice Tears, due to the influence of extreme temperatures, there were a gradual forming of illusion stones around the eight peaks. It was originally mined for use as a source of energy for living. It was looked into again when developing a weapon against Datenshi. Eventually Food Souls were created. After the technology matured, Gloriville gave a grant to the Academy to build Observatory to ensure that the illusion stones could be produced continuously.
Blue Stone Town Mayor
After the Elves era, some humans from areas of Nevras stayed in town. Its location at the southernmost tip of Nevras gives this place the highest temperatures in the entire region. The hot springs of Blue Stone Town are beautiful here. These hot springs provide a lot of heat for the town and provide much convenience to living. The drawback though is, this hot springs are corrosive and cannot be used for bathing.
