Muninn Magellas has had an insatiable curiosity for history and arcana since he was a small boy. Now, as the patron of the Explorers' Guild, his childhood wish has come true. Magellas is responsible for mapping out the world and cataloguing its various species, relics, and treasures for the generations to come. Employing a small army of Prospectors, Magellas has sent his agents all over the world to gain knowledge and insight for his people. Like King Magni, Magellas was grieved to hear of Brann's loss.

Before the Storm
Following the Argus Campaign, he arrived to the Hall of Explorers to meet with Magni Bronzebeard who spoke about Azerite. Muninn immediately agreed to send a team from the Explorers' League to Silithus.
Few people are familiar with the excellent, and unofficial, relationship between SI:7 and the Explorers' League, which leads Muninn to hide precious missives in a cache under the carpet at the entrance of the Hall of Explorers for the agents of the SI:7.
In the RPG
Back during the Second War, the intellectual dwarf named Munnin Magellas, had a vision of discovering the world's and the dwarves secrets. It was his vision and drive that led to founding of the Explorers' League.
