From this time on this Circle is under close control, worse then it was before and is populated by former apostates, its senior enchanters and First Enchanter former members of the Montsimmard Circle.
  • After ten long, miserable years the treaty is signed and a ceasefire between Templars and Mages begins. The treaty is written by The Divine, Orlesian Emperor, King Alistair, Knight Vigilant, and the Grand Enchanter. It is signed in Weisshaupt.
  • The treaty is signed by every First Enchanter. The treaty recognises the Libertarians as Free Mages and the Templars are forced to cease their sieges of these Towers of Magi.
