Ulcaster was a conjurer of note, who founded a school of wizardry in the small farming village that is today Beregost over 300 years ago. Roughly eighty years after the school was founded Calishite mages came to fear the school's power and popularity. The school was destroyed in a massive spell battle and Ulcaster disappeared and has not been seen since. The ruins of the school lie on a hill to the east of Beregost and are said to be haunted. The local clerics of Lathander graze their sheep near the ruins to keep an eye on things in the area.
