The Gold Order is one of the eight Colleges of Magic which trains Wizards in The Empire. Gold wizards are masters of metals, ores and alchemy. They are the most skilled in this area of all men in the Old World. As a result Gold wizards are prone to smelting these substances into unruly liquids to aid their magical powers. The Order's headquarters in Altdorf is, more or less, a giant forge this is filled with chimneys and furnaces. It is situated close to the River Reik in order to cool the forges. The Lore of Magic they study is the Lore of Metal.
