Marilick University is a non-magical university in Brinston. Because it refuses to open magic classes, many people consider it to be a sub-standard institution. In fact Marilick U is perhaps the best training school for those things it teaches. Marilick U has extensive training for traveling merchants. Courses in languages, navigation, diplomacy, sales and contract negotiations, law-including laws of differing regions, trade goods and markets, and various other specialized course applicable to trade. Oddly enough, Marilick U graduates often go on to become naval officers for the city-state because of their broad knowledge of the world and other cultures.
