Pillar of Knowledge
The Pillar of Knowledge is a Pillar made available by having the Arcana of Matter starting technology. The Pillar of Knowledge increases the Science output of tiles in an area around it; the intensity and area of the effect are based on the pillar's Arcana level.
Upon obtaining the Cold Engineering technology by completing Chapter 5, Part 1 of the Ardent Mages faction quest, the Pillar of Knowledge will produce an additional +3 on tiles within its range during winter.
The natural environment close to this Dust-infused pillar behaves in wondrous ways, stimulating scientific thinking.
