Welcome to No Books of Men! We are a modern alternate history board set in a magical school nestled in the Columbiana Valley of the Rocky Mountains. Students of the Collegium Illustrata Columbiana (commonly called simply The Academy) are free to explore their wildest imaginations in learning the mystic arts, so long as it does not jeopardize the ongoing Shadow War with the Exarchs. How will you live up to the legacies of Merlin?

darkkenchild is the Head Admin here at No Books. He enjoys long walks on the beach and debating the metaphysical underpinnings of reality, so any questions about your character , the plot of No Books, and/or how magic works on the site, please do not hesitate to ask him.

Squeeji is the head of “Human Resources” here at No Books, and responsible for pretty much everything related to our contact with the outside world. Advertising, orientation, and just about anything to do with bringing in new blood is in her wheelhouse.

No New Posts The Grounds

Everything on campus that isn't a classroom building or the student center is part of the grounds. Sure, it's pretty. It's also unpredictable and sometimes dangerous...

No New Posts Student Center

A gleaming modern building of glass and steel, the student center almost seems out of place at a school for magic. Not that the students mind, it's one of the best parts of campus...

No New Posts Hiawatha Park

Named after one of the legendary original founders of the Academy, Hiawatha Park is a simple and idyllic place of gentle walking paths, shade trees, small ponds, and grassy knolls. Just take care not to find yourself in the park after dark. Rumours abound of werewolves and other creatures frequenting its environs by night.

No New Posts Residences

Columbiana Village originally grew out of its residential areas. Faculty at the Academy built their homes in the area and then alumni moved in alongside them and built up the schools, businesses and other amenities of a modern city. The residential areas are still the center and lifeblood of the town.
