An ancient and revered circle of wizards, the Zizbits were a mysterious
cult that dominated Pheebor
for several centuries. They were destroyed
in the sacking of Pheebor in 396 BE. Before the city fell, this
mysterious cult. While their
fabled magic spells and paraphernalia were thought to have been
entirely lost with them, at least one spellbook
was handed down to
. This book was later stolen by Moog
mid-tenth century who used it to form the Triax
(c. 957-966 GUE). Some
various Zizbit books of lore also were on display at the museum of the
, but were removed sometime before 949 GUE.
no one has yet to discovered the exact nature of the Phee Hourglass
is generally believed to have been constructed by the Zizbits. Legends
once told that the fabulous wealth of the Zizbits lay within their
temple, but all that remained was a magical pool used as an oracle.
in the tenth century, when Moog prepared to complete the Triax, the
of some of the Zizbits still remained within their temple,
although they seemed to have been powerless to prevent the witch from
fulfilling the evil prophecy. They were described as luminous cloaked
figures, no more than apparitions. The enchanted circle which Moog
broke, had been their protection.
