Second City Shadows
Eldrich scholars that specialize in theory & knowledge of the supernatural. Always seeking new information or curios and willing to pay in kind. Their libraries hold countless artifacts both powerful and ancient, located in various non-descript locations around Chicago. If you know the right person, you might even access them in the ‘restricted’ sections of Chicago’s public and private libraries.
Their skills have allowed them to hold outsized influence over Chicago’s rich and powerful since the powerful ley lines beneath the city were fractured in the early 90s, robbing the local wizards of their near total dominance. Many a powerful figure in today’s Chicago owes their success to the knowledge imparted to them by a Scholomancer, or a powerful artifact that most see as little more than an extravagant collectible in their office.
