The Lords of this town were always slightly different from the rest of the rulers of the Heroes world, both when it was called Tower before and Academy now. They were known for their ability of making decisions quickly in difficult situations and the most amazing was that those decisions were generally sound and well thought through.
Since the Great Vizier of the Bracada Council, Gavin Magnus, made a deal with the aliens, the wizards became only more powerful than ever by using the knowledge gained from the aliens. The forces of the country were formidable and probably the most powerful in the whole Antagarich. Bracada wasn't engaged in any serious big scale wars for a very long time, probably several centuries. The small border conflicts with the Barbarians and lending several Golem units as a helping hand to a neighbouring Erathia according to the peaceful agreement are not counting.
When the wars for restoration of Erathia and extermination of the Kreegans along with retrieving the Armageddon's Blade were finally ended in Antagarich, the wizards made the usual long-term analysis of the present situation. The results they've got were so terrifying that the Council was called into session at once. The reports of the intelligence and the comparative analysis of all available data along with some very unusual magical methods available only to the wizards all were used for checking the information. Unfortunately, it proved to be valid. Prediction was that the past two terrible wars would be a Sunday stroll at a warm summer day to what was waiting the world in the most near future.
