As a welcoming statement to all students, scholars and magical graduates, I wish to welcome all with a warm greeting to the Arcanic Celian Academy. Our mission is to educate the masses of diverse alumni and students into arcane excellency; to promote our community of education and creative progress through education, research, scholarship, creativity, and critical thinking in both the general and arcanic field of education. Our vision as an academy is to see The Arcanic Celian Academy recognized as one of the greatest centers of education and magical prosperity in the world. -Renae Athri’onn, Lady Sorceress of Celia’nor
THE ARCANIC COMMAND
i. Do not use your magic to cause harm to innocents.
ii. Do not dabble in the arcane recklessly and without thought for its effect on the world.
iii. Ensure you understand the effects the arcane has on the world and the costs.
THE ARCANIC ROLES
Head to the college, the Headmaster/Headmistress is responsible for formulating the criteria of the academy of students, to oversee student growth and educational content. They are equally responsible for the conduct of their students, and expected to serve punishment towards students who are committing rowdy behavior.
Teachers to entire classes of students, Arcanic lecturers are responsible for tutelage of basic class lectures and educational content. Expected to engage and teach their students, Lecturers are seen as pillars to the college in creating the next generation of avid scholars and sorcerers. Lecturers, however, teach classes of several students, whereas mentors are responsible for teaching individual students. While they can both take on multiple students, and hold lecture classes; they generally form mentorships with individual under-graduate students attempting to learn Evocations or Arcane Forging.
Pupil towards lecturers and students, Scholars are generally considered of two groups, of youths attending the college as general students in both the arcane, and educational sector, and older alumni who study the arcane arts alongside other fields of study. Both are under the tutelage of Lecturers, and expected to not only act appropriately inside the college, but produce productive grades to advance in their studies.
An introductory class to the fundamentalism of the practice, function, application, and theoretical aspects of the Arcane, Arcane Theory/Basics teaches the understandings and tutelage of a student's introductory years of Arcane practice. Both on an application of arcanic sciences in the laboratory sense, the philosophical in creative and documentative writing, and practice of the basic arts of the Arcane. While largely a class of classwork and study, the class does teach the basics and intro level understandings of how to practice in meditation, honing skills, and preparation towards being assigned mentors. This class is considered a requirement to prepare for Specialty classes.
Defense against the dark arts:
Dedicated to the study of arcanic defense, the Defense Against the Dark Arts class is for the purpose of studying how to best defend oneself against the practice of dark magic, shades, and other abhorrent magics, through either active prevention of hexes, or defense against the dark arts through defensive combat and how best to defeat abhorrent magic users.
Introduction to Magical Creatures, is a subject of field of study that studies the biology of Magical Creatures, from anatomy, to population statistics, taming, and other lessons of these magical beasts. Largely practiced by beast-tamers, this class intends to teach students how to properly engage with fantastical creatures, or how to properly avoid dangerous beasts from bringing harm to the individual or populace. Magical creature studies include mythology, transfiguration, and other oddities of the beastial world.
Centered on the practice of Deity magics, Deific Magics is a class to be easily said as kept under a watchful eye. Centered on the field of studying and practicing Deity magic, it is largely kept under the watchful eye of the Ancient Arcanic Council. Largely considered a taboo by many within the Ember City, it is monitored closely to reach a better understanding of these strange and mythical arts.Largely made of rituals and tools, it is a class that seeks to expand students to the concept of the divine magics.
Necessary to a fully rounded education, general studies is a requirement of all students to pass, with topics such as literacy and basic math to be passed. General studies is a broad subject, including basic rundowns of content including reading and writing for youths and in-need adults. Math is a subject many are required to be able to pass with a basic understanding of math operations as a basic, and promotion of Algebra for post-grad students in general studies. Literacy is deemed highly valued and therefore a requirement to all youth students to learn.
The masters class of alumni of Arcane theory/basics, Evocation class is for the purpose of suiting a student with a mentor into learning one of the many degrees of Evocational magic. Evocation is the most hands-on class, with a focus on meditation, establishing a link, and spell practicing. A student may attend Evocation class for as long as necessary to establish them as a versed practitioner of Evocational Magic.
The practice of drawing forth one's connection to the void, Arcanic forging study deals in the education of this ability to hone one's latent energies into the physical. Students will learn from assigned mentors in this field in both experimentation and research of this practice and ability.
THE ANCIENT ARCANIC COUNCIL
