The Cor Noli (Circle of Wisdom) are the secret Elvish Intelligence group. They report strictly to Queen, who is their unofficial leader. The Cor Noli’s primary task is to interpret scrolls and prophecies, and help determine the future. When they are not at the Crystal Hall they spend the majority of their time at the great library of Tol Nole. They spend their time here reading volume after volume of prophecies, and trying to interpret it. Tol Nole, established by the Argani, is now manned by the Cor Noli’s own personal scribes, hand-picked. Most of them are trained mentalists.

Other members of the Circle are chosen solely because they get prophetic dreams. Whilst rare, the leaders of the Circle keep their ears open for such individuals, and quickly snatch them up. Miquala, the current leader of the Cor Noli is a powerful prophet.

The third group, known as the Boro Noli, are those with other skills. Not able to see visions, nor particularly scholarly, the members of the Boro Noli are athletic, strong and, most importantly, masters of disguise or deception. It is there job to wonder the world, particularly the lands of their enemies, and find out as much information as they can. Sometimes they go deep undercover for many centuries (not a long time for an Elf). There are currently six Elves stationed in Rhutalath, and four in Daenor. They use magic to disguise themselves and help them remain undetected.

The Cor Noli are not a secret to other Argani, nor or they feared- the only seek to further Edhelnore’s power by interpreting the future and reporting on the actions of their enemies. The average Elf has little to fear from the Circle. Elves (and occasionally Men) who show potential are approached by a member of the Cor Noli. Training is rigorous, though once approached applicants seldom fail- if the circle want you, they’ll get you.

Amongst the Circle’s most recent achievements are discovering the location of the Sword of Kuros, finding out about the Death Queen’s daughter, Uncovering the whereabouts of Salasia and informing Melwen of the imminent invasion of Rhutalath by Daenorrim forces.

The Circle currently consists of Twenty-six members, only half of which are situated in Edhelnore. They also employ over thirty staff at Tol Nole who research the tomes and report back to the Circle member on duty there. Their main base is Crystal Hall, though they have a secondary base at Tol Nole. The circle have no uniform or symbol.
