The Subjects and Schools of Magic

Where do you learn magic? There are two main schools inside of the world for arcane magic. The most accessible is A.E.G.I.S. in Aether. The second is the Arcane Sanctum. A.E.G.I.S. is where most of the game's mages are trained and certified. A citizen of Aether must go through the training process of A.E.G.I.S or they are considered an illegal mage. They are imprisoned and often put down if they are found as they are considered a threat.

The Arcane Sanctum is not part of Aether. They are their own minor kingdom in the sky. They teach Arcane, Death, Holy, Unholy and Void. To learn their magic the character must have a good reputation with the leader of the order that uses it. For excample, to learn Holy the character should be in good with either the Divine Lady or the Radiant Lord (Seraph/Paladin). To learn Void or Unholy they have to have the respect of the Void Lord. Learning Arcane they need to have an archmage willing to take them in as an apprentice. To learn Death they need to prove to the Wraith Lord that they are serious about the art of being a Reaver.

Character Creation
A strong character concept will be focused and with flaws as well as boons. The idea that a character should know every kind of magic out there is ridiculous. Choose one school to learn from and work within the confines of that school. Each school has a different method of teaching and requires a different character creation process.
