Tarentian was home to multiple Ourak schools including the Acarina school, one of the “Three Gems” of Tarentian as well as one of the “Seven Treasures” of Ourak.
It was crushed by the Mandate after offering resistance to their rule over a 100 years ago, and even now remains highly policed.
The Ourak schools of Tarentian were rare because they were one of the few schools to respect and work with non-Ourak casters.
After the Mandate crackdown, over a hundred casters fled into a complex cave system at the bottom of a deep canyon. They, and their descendants, excavated and built an Ourak academy under the very noses of the Mandate.
