Exalted: The Legend of Denandsor
The Archaeological Society of Denandsor was founded by the Solar Exalted Evangeline ‘Diamond’ Azure as a natural extension of her own occupation, previous to becoming Exalted. Its exclusive function thus far is to facilitate expansion, preservation, and study, of the Great City of Denandsor and its history, any artifacts found within, as well as support any expeditions going beyond its walls in any way possible. Given that much of the city has not yet been cleansed of threats and examined, Diamond’s, and the Society’s, work, is cut out for it.
Currently the Society resides in its main (and only) building, a larger one claimed by Diamond as soon as she knew the section it resided in was safe, and not only repurposed her employees as members, but also took in as many as wanted to help. The building has three floors and many rooms. The bottom floor serves mainly as a reception and partial museum, showcasing some of the artifacts that Diamond and her employees brought in with them upon arrival, as well as some that have already been found in Denandsor. The second and third floors, for now, are mostly for examination, study, preservation, and whatever administrative functions are required to continue maintaining the Society.
Recognizing that this would not only serve the main purpose of exploration, examination, and preservation, of the city, but also as a form of education for those who had not had the same luxuries she had growing up, Diamond hopes to eventually turn it into one part of an even greater educational facility – Denandsor’s first specifically educational institution. A university, or at least, a school, that could one day start creating a well-educated society that can both help Denandsor and the world at large, with the educated folks and their knowledge that it will hopefully start to churn out. Education, Diamond firmly believes, is the key to survival, both for individuals and society at large.
