The School of the Mage of Shadowdale was a small school in Huzuz in 1367 DR.[note 1][1]


Students accepted by Elfinster could learn magical spells, or, if they lacked magical ability, they could learn to recognize a specific spell being cast based upon the caster's gestures and speech.[1]

Though Elfinster could be quite eccentric, his prices were reasonable and he was a proficient teacher.[1]

Scrolls could also be purchased here.[1]


Elfinster owned and operated this school.[1]
