Fullname: The Arvum Philosophical Society for the Empowerment and Enlightenment of Curious Minds
The Arvum Philosophical Society for the Empowerment and Enlightenment of Curious Minds is a massive mouthful, intentionally so, and it's no wonder the society became simply known as "the salon". Founded by Juliet Fidante in the spring of 1005, the Salon's stated goal is to provide a forum for interested parties of all ranks and social stations to find ways of bettering the world through discussion and debate. Sharing information and expertise to find solutions to what ails Arvum.
Critics note that the Society may exchange "Curious" for "Idle", as lazing about a salon drinking wine and solving the world's problems through the bottom of a bottle is mostly fit for the younger children of affluent households. Perhaps the only thing that separates the Salon from a drinking club, to the casual eye, is the dedication to finding actual experts able to speak on their speciality.
