The Academy of Magic has seven Colleges, each with its own history, character, and core curriculum. As you consider your place in the school, brief introductions may be in order.


Aranaz

Aranaz College is named after King Aranaz, a legendary tactician whose brutality is no less famed than his skill. This college once championed the art and science of Orthography, but the Praetexta council folded this discipline into Astrology and Artifice. The college remains, however, and is known for its pursuit of perfection, order and power.

Avila

Avila is one of the first Colleges of the Academagia, and it is named for Queen Avila, who was Queen over the Chardissian Isles and is famed for her part in beginning the revolt against the dragons. When she first came to the crown, she refused to serve the wyrms, setting off a great war amongst the beasts that turned to the advantage of Men. This college is known for its seers, luck and stubborness.

Godina college was one of the last colleges entered at the Academy. Its namesake, King Godina, was renowned for the depth of his treasury, the endurance of his warriors, and his famed battle-rage.

Hedi

Hedi College, located next to the Vasastra Campanile, is named for Queen Hedi of Tiljat, justly famed for her powers of diplomacy.

This college is known for its secret glamours, illusions and enchanters.

Rival: None

Morvidus College is nestled under the eaves of the forest of Pal, as befitting their namesake.

This college is known for its artificers, mercantile acumen and resourcefulness.
