This plot is your typical mage school in a fantasy setting with a little twist thrown in - everyone is evil :) . I am open to new ideas for the plot or characters. That said, here's how the plot stands, hope it sounds like fun.
Mage Academy at Shadowfel
The Continent-Kingdom of Avialus splintered over a century ago. Now the once radiant civilizations it encompassed
have grown apart and distrustful of one another. War sweeps unchecked across the land and spares nether servant nor
master. In this twilight of man one nation state, Arkylia, has grown particularly twisted and ruthless. The
Arkylians are born and raised to act without mercy while spurning all question of morality and ethics. The most
feared of the Arkylian are mages, singular beings of power who use magic to fulfill their every whim.
The Mages Sanctuary at Shadowfel is one of the most feared and respected mage towers in Avialus. The Sanctuary
itself is hidden in a mountain forest and not even most Arkylian know where it is. Masters at the Sanctuary perform
terrible experiments, acting under no restrictions or care for humanity. Plagues, armies of the undead and world
devouring nightmares are some of the lesser evils to have escaped from the Sanctuary walls. In Aryklia, such
activity is fully encouraged. One instructor who slept with her students to gain eternal youth, at the expense of
her students lives, was recently given a prestigious award by the State for her work.
The halls of the Sanctuary have been quiet this past year. A war in the North has begun to draw in more and more
nations and with them the Masters. With almost all senior Masters gone off to fight only the Sanctuaries small Mage
Academy continues to function.
This plot would open with the students of the Mage Academy presenting the results of experiments done on lower
ranking prisoners (temporary NPCS they can control). The students are being graded on ability to get prisoners to
divulge information or to otherwise make the prisoners of use in the war. Teachers will pick the most successful
students to lead up experiments being done on higher ranking prisoners. Students who aren't picked can join a team
as an assistant or switch to playing a Prisoner character if they want.
Players Wanted for:
-Prisoners (optional, feel free to make one of these in addition to another character. these chars will be present
and used *ahem* regardless)

*Teachers tend to be highly specialized in their primary school of magic so there are no limits on what kind of
magic you select. A teacher's secondary school is usually the elemental or enchantment school they specialized in as
students. Elemental subtypes or enchantment magic should be the primary schools for those playing students, with
their secondary being the magic they hope to specialize in (usually that of their favorite teachers).Mage Academy at Shadowfel(OOC)Mage Academy at Shadowfel(IC)Mage Academy at Shadowfel(Character Thread)
