General Literary Analysis and Interpretation

Course objective: To foster an appreciation of the noble art of literature as a social critic. This course is intended not as an instruction, but a forum for the free exchange of ideas in regards to life, the universe, and everything. And the answer will never be 42.

Schedule:
The class will meet every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Attendance is compulsory--skip or attend as you choose.

The format of the class is a large discussion group about texts Ripper will assign. These texts are assigned once discussion about the previous text has been completed.

The first text assigned is the classic short story by H.P. Lovecraft, "The Shadow Over Innsmouth."

Expectations:
Students are required to participate in the discussion to the best of their ability.

Students, if they choose to participate, are expected to write a minimum 3000 word essay describing their interpretation of the assigned text, stating an argument, and defending it based on textual evidence and outside, scholarly research. These essays are due two weeks after discussion is finished, and students are encourage to make use of the library in their research attempts.

A student must be competent in the usage of grammar, and Ripper does offer private literacy tutorials to help the student learn language better.

Further note: There is really no passing or failing grade in this class. Ripper will continuously teach these things until it is time to take a hiatus, at which point the class will be dismissed until such time as his return.

The mun also encourages everybody to read these texts themselves and present their ideas to the group. I only ask that you keep in mind the basic rules of conduct on the RDI, and that nobody. Will ever. Take offense to the ideas presented. Remember, interpretation and argument is objective, not personal. Please don't make it personal.

Lesson Update: All new readings will be posted at the bottom of Ripper's profile page.

Dark Art Defense

Class Room: The one at the end of the Mage Hall. Right by the Library! On the first floor! There's no windows so expect it to be a little stuffy, and it will be kept dimly lit by candle light.

There will be no quizzes except for the final exam! All grades will be given by skill-level alone! Meaning, if you suck at breaking out of mine body-puppet hex, you're most likely going to fail that part of the class!

Dark Art Defense is simple! It teaches you how not to be a useless witch, wizard, or whatever you want to call yourself. It means you can stare down a stupid Succubus and send her straight back to the nether after counter spelling her seduce! ( Though I suggest you don't.. I did it once and the succubus started doing weird things at me. It was unpleasant! )

Expect many group activities! This is a hands on class. You will be slinging curses, hexes, and other nasty things at one another to better prepare you for the outside world!

Each week consists of 3 days. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Week 1 - 2
Hex Breaking

Week 3 - 4
Curse Mending

Week 5 - 6
Spell Jamming & Counter Spells

Week 7
Illusion Break & Shattering
Needed Literature: Is that ten foot spider in front of me real or just a figment of my imagination? by El-ron J Wizardbottom.

Week 8
Mystical Creatures & Why Their Blood is Useful
Needed Literature: 101 Ways to use Dragon's Blood for Anti-Magic purposes by Jeferri Green

Week 9
Final Review & Exam

Necromancy
Advanced Studies: Chaos Nether Manipulation & Blood Magic



Each week consists of 2 days. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Get ready to get down and dirty! Real dirty.. I suggest you bring a shovel for this class because the only way to get attached to a corpse you want to raise is to dig it up yourself!

Extra Benefits from the Class: Copies of the Arcane Tomes found within the Tower of Earth on the Twilight Isle.

These tomes teach much of earth manipulation which will help in creating noxious poisons and unearthing vile creatures that may be hidden away deep, deep underground. The deader, the better! Because this class will teach you to bring them into glorious unlife!

Tests will come in the form of corpse combat! Each student will be instructed to command their risen creatures to attack one another! You will be graded on.

1: Stamina of both Mage & Summoned Creature
2: Brutality
3: Imagination!
Example: Sewing four corpses together to make an undead human-spider-thing? You'll be getting an A++!
4: Control

There are two Advanced Classes that branch off Necromancy once you complete the proper rituals. These are Chaos Nether Manipulation & Blood Magic.

Chaos Nether Manipulation
Raising, binding, and keeping your undead creations under your control is the first step! Manipulating the Daemons from the Netherworld is the next! In this advanced class you will be taught to summon the creatures of the dark abyss and use them for your own benefits.

This class will take place during the third hour of the AM, Friday.

Blood Magic
The Blood Magic of X'guth! The best type of magic! Details will be kept in private and shared with students who show themselves as willing and able to learn such fierce and forbidden magics.

Times for this class will be on a Need to Know Basis.

Broom Flying
Aka, "How to look cool on a Broom"

The only good Witch is a Witch who knows how to fly on a broom! Classes will take place each morning at 7 AM, Monday - Friday ( I DO NOT WORK ON SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS! ) and will last an hour! You will learn basic flight to advance maneuvers as time goes on.

The meeting place for this class will take place on the Sports Fields outside of the Academy.

I advise you to bring your own brooms, though the school will provide any to those who are deemed "needing".

This class has no tests! You may come and go at your own pace. There is no age limit. Except if you're a baby. But why would you fly on a broom if you're a baby? You can't even walk!

Katana Forging

The Ancient Method

Instructor: Master Weapons Maker - Aristotle Kruger Allen

A fifteen week hands on class in the ancient method of making the Katana. This course will include the creation of Tamahagani Steel through the use of the Japanese Tatara kiln. It will guide students through proper selection of the metals as well as pattern welding via folding techniques. Students will also learn the art of creating the Katana through time honored methods.

Participants of this course will be graded on the weapon created, that weapon will belong to the student at the completion of the course. Any additional fees for this class are used for the purchase of tools and materials. Neither the Academy of Bristle Crios nor Master Allen retains any profit. (Minors are accepted to this class with written permission from the attending student’s parent or guardian.)

Week 1: Creating through use of the Tatara Kiln and selecting the proper pieces of steel. (Selection of Tamahagani is graded. The chosen steel will be inspected by the instructor for quality, the student will be required to answer why they chose as they did. There are no failing grades as those needing to select again will be given more instruction until the proper quality is achieved.)

Week2-3: Deciding on your design and the use of proper folding techniques using ancient tools. (The designs are aesthetic in nature and won’t be graded. The folding process will be explained and demonstrated for those attending. Students will be observed in their method, and corrected in process.)

Week 4-5: Creating the heart of the Katana. (Individual methods will be looked at and chosen. There is no wrong selection, the method chosen though should be adhered to. Difficulty level of different methods will be taken into consideration. Changing methods is possible provided the student informs the instructor.)

Week 6-7: Shaping the blade and proper hardening procedure through the use of specially blended clays. Creating the Haman, and giving the blade its soul. (This process will be demonstrated, with an incorporated lecture of how it is done and why it is important. The instructor will observe each student individually in this stage, giving advice and aid as needed.)

Week 8-9: Determining blade quality and the first polishing. (Graded pass/fail. A viable fighting weapon will be graded as a pass, anything less must be called a failure as the use of it would endanger the user. The instructor has offered private sessions at the shop Kruger’s Exotic. Students who manage to create on second attempts will be advanced with a passing grade.)

Week 10-12: Techniques of the hand polisher, or togishi. (Cuts to the polisher are common and this should be taken into account before signing up. The use of polishing stones and methods of bringing out the haman will be demonstrated. The instructor will be working along with students. They are encouraged to observe and ask questions.)

Week 13-14: Techniques of the mountings maker or sayashi. (Creating the hand guard will be part of this process. Those whose design has incorporated an intricate nature will be making those in this two week session. The final result will be compared to the original design. Modifications will be subjected to explanations.)

Week 15: Testing the Katana’s cutting capability. (This test, once done on the corpses of criminals, will be performed on straw bound in a way to emulate the use of corpses. The sword will have the classification of how many straw ‘corpses’ it cuts in a single stroke.)

Core and option modules will be assessed progressively by individual tutors. Please note that students will be expected to complete coursework on Core modules, and failure to do so will result in failure to graduate. If a student fails the first year, they will not be allowed to continue on to the second.

Course starts in September of each year.
