Sperimin is a city from the First Age, but is now known as Malahanka.

Sperimin was a First Age city in the East, and was the greatest seat of learning for the in Creation. It is located approximately 1,500 miles east of Larjyn and approximately 200 miles southeast of Farhold. Today, Sperimin is known as Malahanka, the City of a Thousand Golden Delights and is a jungle ruin that is ruled over by Raksi, the Queen of Fangs, who took control of it from the remaining residents who survived both The Great Contagion and the subsequent Invasion by the Fair Folk. The city is overrun with her ape-beastmen and barbarian tribes that worship Raksi as a goddess.

The Library of Sperimin
The most notable feature of the city is the famous Library of Sperimin, also known as the Sixfold Spire – a collection of six towers that comprise the Library itself. This was the single greatest library of sorcerous knowledge of the First Age and was generally open to Solar and Lunar sorcerers to come and study sorcery. The prize of the Library is the fabled Book of Three Circles, which is jealously guarded by Raksi herself who believes that she will someday unlock the secret to being able to cast sorcery of the Adamant Circle. She rarely permits other Lunar sorcerers to read from the Book of Three Circles, and only if she feels that they are as inhuman as she is.



The Sixfold Spire of Sperimin was originally built by the First Age sorcerer Devon, who bequeathed it to Salina upon his retirement. Of the six towers, the first and second are offices and workspaces. The third tower was devoted to demonology, while the fourth tower was devoted to astrology. The fifth tower acts as a teacher of any spell the sorcerer wishes to know, an effect that was put into place by the knowledge Salina gleaned from the Salinan Working. The sixth tower is devoted to communication.

A Brief History
After having been established by Devon and improved upon by Salina, the city was overrun with Dragon-Blooded and Sidereals in the Usurpation. The Celestial teachers either died or fled from Sperimin, while the divine teachers also departed after heavy disrespect from the new rulers of the city. Sperimin was largely abandoned in the Great Contagion and was later seized by Raksi who currently controls the city. Salina wanted the Spire to be open to all and it remains so – no tricks or booby-traps lurk within its halls.
