Shade's scholarly community represents an insulated and highly eccentric collection of scientists, magicians, historians, archivists, linguists and the like.

Communicating by way of grumpy, sarcastic or spiteful letters in Shade's various academic journals, the community has developed traditions, terminology, conventions and virtually an entire culture of its own.

Scholars often write under pseudonyms as a way of getting round social (or legal) restrictions on discussing particular topics.

Eccentric bookish types typically hold dragannerie in high regard.
