The following sign up sheet cropped up at various places around the Academy of Bristle Crios, its Coven, and several places throughout Rhydin:

Arcane & Metaphysical Theory 1000

Is it within you, or have you marveled at the feats of Magic users from afar? Discuss, debate, and learn about the fundamental aspects of magical theory with Bristle Crios Magus Laureate, Atticus D'Arcstorm.

'Being a Wild Talent, though the term is somewhat crude, if accurate, can be both challenging and taxing on an ascending mage; without the proper way to channel the release of arcane energy, a mage can be inadvertently harm others, or even burn themselves out. The best way to avoid this is through education.'
- Atticus D'Arcstorm

- Open to both current and aspiring practitioners of the Arts or Craft. Beings who have innate magical qualities or abilities are also included, as are mundanes who are simply curious and wish to take part in debate.

- Personal Foci, Spellbooks, Familiars, and other peripheral aids are welcome, but will also be subject to monitoring through Contingency Identify Spells. For those without such resources at your disposal, aids will be provided for you in the relevant classes. Such implements will be collected at the end of class, unless said instruments are needed for homework.

- Lectures could be few in number, but run long hours. Prepare accordingly, as you may find yourself in a simulated, or even off campus environment for upwards of 2-3 hours at a time. It is encouraged that you both pack a lunch, and indulge in necessary bathroom breaks before classes start.

- Lectures will take place in Mage Hall, in the Horizon Amphitheater.

Notice to Students & Teachers:

Enrollment for Arcane & Metaphysical Theory has now opened. The class will start mid-semester, but students who attend lectures are eligible to apply for double credit hours. e.g., Mid-Semester classes are usually only valued at 3 credit hours, this one will count as 6.

Auditors welcome.

Complete the Sign Up sheet below and submit it to Academy Bristle Crios Mage Hall, Faculty Office or to Atticus D'Arcstorm's personal offices at Mage Hall, Eternal House, or Horizon R&D.

Sample Enrollment Sheet:

Name: Student's Name

Student/Auditor: In what capacity you're enrolling.

Interest in the Craft: How you became interested in magic.

Current Affinity for the Arts: What your current level of familiarity is with magic, or magic/supernatural abilities.

What You Hope to Learn: Exactly that - what you hope to take away from the class.

Residence / Emergency Contact Information: (Just in case).

Other Pertinent Information: eg, If you have racial allergies, such as mercurial silver, or cold iron; do you share any type of elemental ancestry which would make exposure to a certain element more antagonizing than normal? If yes, please indicate so that extra precautions can be put in place ensure both your safety - and enjoyment in the learning experience of the class.

Please Fill Out the Enclosed Poll As Well. Thank you.



OOC:

Information for the lectures will be a mixed bag of his own personal take on several 'systems of magic', mostly using a couple of cool little online resources that everyone will be able to access if they want to look - like a few Wiki's in particular. Obviously, there's not really a definitive take on magic, so what he's teaching is 'his' definitive take on it - since I have to start somewhere. For my own personal resource, which I'll likely be citing as I do my lecture write ups, I'll be using the Laws of Magic, excerpted from Authentic Thaumaturgy, by P.E.I. Bonewits; something I saw when I was much younger, and thought made cool talking points for magic in general. It can be found here.

Anyone reading, and on any account can feel free to fill out the poll as well; obviously if you're taking the class, you'll get the chance to add your two cents anyways, but if you're not... well, it would be interesting to see what the majority of Rhydinians value magic as. That being said, try to vote with the conscience of whatever character you're on. Cheers!

Name: Felicity Storm

Student/Auditor: Student

Interest in the Craft: I have innate pyro-kinetic abilities that manifested with the onset of puberty.

Current Affinity for the Arts: I have mastered basic control, and have begun to explore ways to apply fire in a less destructive manner. You want something blown up or burned to a crisp, that's easy.

What You Hope to Learn: More advanced control over my innate abilities, especially in emotionally charged situations; more ways to use them that don't involve wholesale destruction or hurting people.

Residence / Emergency Contact Information: Willow Manor, Maple Grove. Phone number 782-9741 (Olivia Storm, mother), or 985-6967 (Johnny Storm, father). If unable to get hold of either, contact the Old Temple Fire Station.

Other Pertinent Information: I am at least a quarter elf, so I'm told I have a sensitivity to cold iron. I am vulnerable to water and ice magics, also.

Name: Lydia Tolmay

Student/Auditor: Auditor

Interest in the Craft: I have a growing interest in the subject of the arcane.

Current Affinity for the Arts: I have very little known affinity, and what little I possess has been involuntary.

What You Hope to Learn: I am open to trying various arcane methods to see what innate talents I may possess.

Residence / Emergency Contact Information: My current residence is along the northern wall of the Dragon’s Gate District. My only emergency contact is my twin sister, Leta Tolmay, though I doubt you would be able to find her unless she chooses to be found.

Other Pertinent Information: If you intent to hold some classes outside, I will not be able to attend any outdoor class during sunlight hours. I will also need to be in a classroom that will not permit sunlight. I can provide UV shaded draperies as this or any of your classrooms require. Lastly, while I would be happy to observe, I would prefer to skip any direct fire based activities. If at any time my limitations may inhibit a class, I would humbly ‘sit out’ that day to allow for the proper education of your students in my absence.

Name: Zynisch Lucis

Student/Auditor: Auditor

Interest in the Craft: I was an adept practitioner of the arcane arts for the majority of my long life, and I've devoted enough time to the study of them that some might consider it an obsession of mine. That being said, I've not subjected myself to another's view on the subject in earnest for a long while due to... complications.

Current Affinity for the Arts: I'm well-versed in a number of magical disciplines; although, many of my more recent, academic acquisitions are tied to my existence as a homunculus formed of a lattice of crystal.

What You Hope to Learn: Insight and learning are indisputable fundamentals of bettering oneself, and as such, I would hear the good professor's own take on how to wave one's proverbial wand.

Residence / Emergency Contact Information: I reside in a cottage in the Southern Glen. Alternatively, I frequent both my office at the Academy and my significant other's residence in Kabuki Crossing.

Should I incur the ill effects of unforeseen circumstances, the following people can be reached in their respective methods: Arthour Chazore (Communication Crystal on my person, Emergency use is authorized), Mai Silverblood (Comm Crystal), Crowe Thorn (Comm Crystal), Claire Farron (Comm Crystal), Ammy Spiritor (Comm Crystal), and Izumi Takamine (Usually at one of our residences).

Other Pertinent Information: As my body is entirely composed of magicked crystal, any consistent anti-magic field or area that I cannot plan for will inhibit and distort my form.

Name: Bastion Kincaid

Student/Auditor: Student

Interest in the Craft: Seems as viable an option in education as anything else, probably more viable for employment reasons than a lot of things.

Current Affinity for the Arts: I can't cast spells or anything, but I guess I'm sensitive?

What You Hope to Learn: More about magic and identifying it I guess.

Residence / Emergency Contact Information: Dragon's Gate Orphanage, I don't have any next of kin per se, but someone there might remember me.

Other Pertinent Information: Sometimes when I sign my art it comes to life or gets animated or... something. So. Have fun with that?

Name: Eden Parker

Student/Auditor: Student

Interest in the Craft: I have a natural ability in mostly illusory magic (some conjuring) and I am trying to learn more about it!

Current Affinity for the Arts: I am a super beginner! I can control my magic, but I don't know much about how it works or where it comes from. Also, my magic is pink and I haven't yet learned how to change that.

What You Hope to Learn: More about the hows and whys of magic and maybe how they apply to me!

Residence / Emergency Contact Information: 1848 Main Street, Unit C, Old Market, RhyDin City. In case of emergency, please contact Cory Sommers [his cell phone number provided] and Hope Naharis at the New Haven baronial manor.

Other Pertinent Information: No known allergies. Prefer not to do anything involving heights of any kind.

A letter from the Academy of Bristle Crios, Office of the Registrar arrives for each person who applied for admission to Arcane & Metaphysical Theory:

Quote:

Dear Students & Fellows,

Thank you and welcome, you have successfully been enrolled in Introduction to Arcane & Metaphysical Theory.

While this class is a sudden additional option to the curriculum, we recognize most students have few extra finances for corresponding supplies, and we will be the expense of all non-standard class supplies.

Please be advised that the first lecture date is set for October 25, 2016, by the C.E. calendar. Lectures will occur every Tuesday & Thursday, with initial lectures at 2 PM, and repeat lectures for evening students at 7 PM.

Anyone interested in joining the class now that official registration has ended, please contact your faculty adviser, the Office of the Registrar, and Lord D'Arcstorm.

Have a wonderful autumn semester!

- Academy of Bristle Crios,Office of the Registrar
- Mage Hall Faculty Office
- Lord Atticus D'Arcstorm, Professor





OOC:

Hey everyone, thanks for showing your interest in the thread - just a heads up I will be starting the actual classes soon. On that note, the schedule posted just above us here is pretty much totally vapor. I plan to get the first class posts/introduction out by the end of next week for sure, but more likely it'll be closer to the 25th, and I don't have any set schedule I want to rush through or anything. It's my intent to give everyone reasonable time to respond to the material, but to try to keep it moving along.

In the process of determining what exactly I was going to cover when doing the class, I found that what I -wanted- to cover was actually too much material for a single class, so... there's potentially a follow up to the 'introductory' class, if it's well received (or even moderately received, since I've enjoyed framing it in my mind so much).

Also, if you're someone who hasn't applied but have somehow read here -after- reading our class thread, feel free to join in - though I'd appreciate a heads up first via PM, just so I know you're there.

Special mention to Blood Sister-mun for showing me a multi-part class concept like this, with feedback even, could work; I appreciate the feasibility study you've done, and happily give credit where it's due!

Cheers to all of you, and see you in class!

-K

Student Enrollment Application for Continuing Education Credits:

Name: Ammy Loraine Spiritor

Student/Auditor: Student - Continuing Education Requirements

Interest in the Craft: Always had a homey feel and close comfortable acquaintance for the arcane arts. Been a comfortable and apt student since I could read at a young age and have found that no matter how much I study there is always something still to learn.

Current Affinity for the Arts: Wide and varied applied and studied knowledge in multiple fields. Primarily Alchemy, Offensive/Defensive battle magic, Fire elements, Sun or Solar arcana, and a variety of beginning and journeyman spells in various schools of magic.

What You Hope to Learn: Better ways to apply my magical knowledge to real world applications. A better grasp on new variations of magic that each realm can present as my knowledge is mostly tied to several realms not native to Rhy'Din.

Residence / Emergency Contact Information: Myrlene Spiritor, Daughter, Winter Paws Kingdom, South Mountain Range of Rhy'din, or Mirius Spiritor, Alchemist's Fire Complex in Rhy'Din City or Spiritor Estates in Den City.

Other Pertinent Information: Sensitive to peanuts and all derivatives from the plant. Can some times make inanimate objects live for a very long time (weeks to months).

OOC:

CLASS IS IN!

Just wanted to say thank you again to everyone who's shown interest and is taking part, or that has helped me figure out exactly how to do this, ooc.

While I'm giving credit where it's due, a lot of the information I'm going to be using are ideas that originated in other role playing systems or worlds, specifically the Classic World of Darkness setting/system designed and owned (not sure currently) by White Wolf Publishing, and also the Dragonlance: Fifth Age SAGA System, owned by Wizards of the Coast/Sovereign Press (depending on which product you're talking about).

When at all possible, I'll provide some links to relevant wiki pages, and how close I cleave in class to what they're talking about will probably appear accurate for some, and outlandish for others, but basically my entire purpose in using them has to do with their comprehensive way they explain magic – and how I explain it's use in my own, or Atticus's world.

Anyone else that wants to sign up and show up to ad hoc classes, as it were, please feel free. For the sake of completeness, I would prefer if you did a little registration post in this thread first – just to allow me to easier keep track of where people are, icon distribution, etc.

Now, for everyone else – or anyone redirected by advertisement, the main class thread can be found HERE. Enjoy & have fun!

-K

OOC:

Greetings & salutations!

Just wanted to say to those of you playing along in A&M Theory 1000, how much I enjoy your responses and writing! The homework assignments especially, are just great. There's at least a couple of you who've posted something in your own folders that relate to the class, so I'm going to go ahead and give you some shameless publicity:

Felicity Storm, aka Fliss has been handling her homework over at Crash & Burn. The last one as of this writing, where she's talking about the reason she wants to learn magic - talk about hitting a guy right in the paternal feels.

Andu Kirost, while making some really insightful comments in class also has been keeping track of his academic pursuits over at Kirost Enterprises..

Ammy Spiritor has an ongoing thread right here in B.C. detailing some of her academic pursuits as a student, not to mention running The Alchemist's Fire, and providing at the least some provocative ideas about a Deities class (Great idea!).

~ ~ ~

Now!

For those of you who've posted already after the introduction of the Barrington Codex item - you'll see it's presence reflected in your inventory, and the rest of you will get one with your next post!

I don't want to make it appear as though I'm bribing my would be students, but there will be at least one more icon to give out at the end of the class - but possibly one before that one as well. This character is supposed to be known for item creation, and I've got a soft spot for giving out treasure/awards when DMing or Narrating table top - so when I realized how easy item creation and reorder was... well, one thing lead to another. You'll see the icon for class completion is already on this profile - the Badge of the Arcane Theorist.

My thanks to Blood Sister mun, for helping with formatting the icons and whatnot; I think our conversation about making them, after the fact was something to effect of:

Me: Wow, that was so easy,
Her: Yeah, I told you five times it was really easy.

(She also told me, 'You should capitalize 'Badge'').

Hope you all are enjoying the class, I know I am, and we're just about to get into what I'm sure most of your characters would more readily identify as 'magic'.

Also...

Enjoy the class trip...

Sincerely, and Playfully Ominous,
K

PostPosted: Sun Dec 11, 2016 11:50 pm    Post subject: About Rebecca Mordoe Reply with quote

OOC:

For those of you in the Introduction to Arcane & Metaphysical Theory 1000 course going to see Rebecca for a copy of the ‘Waiver D5’, I thought you might like to know what to expect...

There is one door that leads to the Headmistress’s Office from the Administration Building’s main hallway on the first floor, but before you come to Ms. Tolmay’s office, you first have to walk through Rebecca’s office. She has an L-shaped wooden desk with a hutch over the one end that sits against the wall. There are two chairs against the wall in front of the other end if people are waiting to see the Headmistress, or needing to pull up a chair to fill out some forms or other paperwork.

On the desk facing towards the door, which is always pleasantly open as long as Rebecca is there, you can see her name plaque that reads, Rebecca Mordoe. If someone calls her by her last name, by a shortened nickname, or any other variation that is not ‘Rebecca’, she will continually insist that everyone call her simply Rebecca. It is the only time the sweet, helpful woman seems unhappy.

Rebecca has light blue eyes and a natural wave to her hair that borders light brown and dark blonde. She would typically be dressed in what one might consider 'casual business attire'. You can see an image of Rebecca here. Highly organized, if asked for the ‘Waiver D5’ form, she will instinctually know where it is, pull open a drawer of the file cabinets along the back wall, and promptly be able to retrieve it through the file folders, offering it to you with a bright smile.

Although she is very kind, she does not typically engage in much small talk. Her responses will be sweet, but somewhat terse, as she prefers to get back to work completing paperwork on her desk or filling in information on her computer files, unless someone needs her help to find or fill out a form.

So… I offer my NPC for this limited time use if anyone would like to include an encounter with her in their posts for the class. It could be an actual written out scene, or just be a reference to her after the fact, or anything like that. If anyone has any questions or concerns, feel free to PM me. I might be able to offer some light dialog, too.

OOC:

Hey everyone, just wanted to give a heads up and give a bit of reassurance.

For those of you looking for a condensed version of where A&M is, the class is about to go on a field trip to Dream. Mostly pointing this out so that if someone does decide to 'walk into class' or something, just realize the where of where class is right now; feel free to enter the class, just not the classroom, as it were.

Unless you're a complete and total lemming, you're safe. A couple of you have already implied you're scared, or rather, your characters are - and I think that's awesome. The other part of me is desperately hoping I don't thoughtlessly write something in a way that it traumatizes anyone's character.

I promise I'll be good...ish. Nightmare on Elm Street was too heavy handed a comparison, I think. Think more Inception, if we have to do a film comparison. Or some gray area between the two. Right now some of you are asking or thinking that I should have gone with Dr. Strange, but I haven't seen it and only just thought of it.

Last but not least, sign up is still open - could be an interesting and chaotic time to join, could be a lot of fun. Just saying, if you want to join, you still can.

Now you're probably thinking I'm talking about some specific you, and not you you. But if you're the you you that's reading this, thinking that, then you're the you you I'm talking to. Quit making this complicated, and just join up.

As always, best regards,
K

PostPosted: Sun Feb 19, 2017 11:48 pm    Post subject: On the Field Trip to Dream Reply with quote

OOC:

Hey everyone, just a little mass update regarding A&M Theory and the current field trip to Dream. A lot of people have sent me questions, or talked to me about some different little things that basically fall under the same banner, so I'm going to try to blanket address everything - hopefully without making it more confusing.

At one point Atticus mentioned the mutability of Dream. Basically, consider that any of the environment that I've mentioned will respond to your character largely however you see fitting, that makes sense for your character. There's not really a wrong way to make use of the freedom, and I do encourage you to make the most of it. That being said, everyone in the realm generates their own bubble of reality in a way; their passions and thoughts are capable of altering what is going on around them which means their reality can both impugn on others, and defend them from others.

Upon arrival, Dream looks like it's described because Atticus is exerting his influence to create a shared vision of Dream for the students, so everyone can interact together. Because they are actually physically there, instead of arriving there by dreaming, the landscape/reality will respond to their sub conscious. For example, someone's thoughts linger on natives to Dream, one might arrive. If another is particularly taken by a De-light, a dream shard, that they perceive there - expect that it is possible that their strong emotions could influence things like weather, temperature, light, almost... I mean it's whatever you can come up with. If you want to use it all.

Don't worry about going outside the box cause... the box is only vaguely there to begin with.

If not, I would like to (this is just foresight) in some cases - only in minor ways unless I ask permission for more - bend the land to reflect the narrative of the characters within it. Again, nothing oppressive, just kind of a Fisher King/ pathetic fallacy type of sense.

All the best,
K / Atticus-mun
