The Ciphers

Cipher mage legend tells of thirty powerful primal magic mages who fell into an eternal sleep, and to dream the Cipher into being, constraining and binding primal magic into a controllable, usable form, and naming and define all things with it.

Little else is known about the legend of the 30 Dreamers, also known as the Ciphers, but their story is often told to Cipher mage children.
