Among those capable of calling out to the Ethereal Plane, there are those who have heard calls in return. Though they are few in number, they hold many stories of what these calls have imparted. Of course, none of these stories make much sense to the average person in Caevaria, so often these cross-planar mediators are thought to be mad. Perhaps some of them are, but madness does not necessarily discount truth. The stories these individuals possess speak of many twisted things, none of them good.
Shunned by the rest of society, these mentally troubled souls sought refuge in numbers and commonality. The Oscurian is a massive spire in eastern Caevaria that serves as a communal living space for these addled men and women where they can converse across the boundaries of reality as much as they like. As might be expected, they don't get many visitors. But they do get some. Praeter Mages, for instance, see great value in consulting the Oscurian for information about beings that they may wish to summon.
Very occasionally, the Oscurian will send out emissaries on quests of great import. These quests are, naturally, requested by those enticing otherworldly voices and often wind up relating in some bizarre fashion to important events as they unfold. But oddly enough, historians don't tend to credit the Oscurian at all...
