Numenera: From Many, One
Colm (Military and Medical) Academy (of Tech/Tomorrow), Thaemor
A remote military installation and training school along the Black Riage, Colm Academy was once admired throughout all of Thaemor for its educational excellence. Now, it has cut off all contact with the outside world, with its campus’ eastern half fallen into disrepair and its current student body only numbering about a hundred after it stopped accepting new applicants.
Exactly why the insitution is in such dire straits is unclear, but rumors have it that its administration, and Provost Pabodie in particular, financed a series of secret, failed expeditions into various ruins and sites of forbidden knowledge. Other people allege that the West Side Pigeons, a small-time gang committing petty crimes in the towns below, is actually the school’s much-ridiculed (ballgame/animal or machine-racing) team gone rogue.
Ross “Viertis” Meyer and Chas Phlebitson are the two best-known graduates of the Academy to the player characters so far.
