For many centuries, the '''Mage's Guild''' was the center of professional accountability and education for magic-users throughout the [[Tamriel]]ic [[Empire]]. This organization was based in the [[Imperial City]], where it had its own quarter of the city. It also maintained a presence in major walled cities throughout the empire, such as in the province of [[Cyrodiil]]. These 'chapters' of the Guild functioned somewhat similarly to the Fighter's Guild in recruitment and practice, especially in training, although with a vastly more collegiate, metropolitan culture.
The Guild was highly committed to archaeological research as well as literature-based arcane research, and until its dissolution at the end of the [[ Third Era]], was the most accomplished investigative entity and explicator of [[Dwemer]] culture and technology.
