School Survival

University life is different from almost everything you have experienced before. You're in the heart of the largest and grandest city of the Empire, learning the ancient secrets of magic, surrounded by students you barely know. Learning School Survival will give you the tools to survive and thrive.

Dominant Attribute: Insight

Note: The School Survival Parent Skill and its Subskills only give a perk to level 10. This is not a bug but intentional.

  • (Field Medicine, Relaxation and Test Taking, added later, do have level 11 perks; Relaxation being the newest, wiki contributors have not yet determined what happens if/when those three are raised to 11, which would presumably raise the Parent Skill to 11 ...)

Curiosity

The Academagia is a renowned University, but it is also the place where the greatest of magical research has occurred. Cataneus discovered the magical mechanisms of Volnage there in the year 167, the mage Essedra made the sensational discovery of the first derivative pheme in 480, and the list goes on. Curiosity was at the root of their greatness, and it can be at the root of yours.

Field Medicine

The techniques of first aid and short term herbal remedies fall under the umbrella of Field Medicine, not Chirurgery.

Relaxation

Relaxation is a skill many folks, (particularly teachers) take for granted - but there's nothing more likely to get you through a challenging academic career than the ability to fling yourself down on a comfy couch and set your worries aside while you daydream about monkeys playing water polo for hours at a time. Remember: If you want to be a master of slaking off, you have to take it seriously.

Schoolyard Education

Students are a diverse lot and when you have a University as large as Academagia there are bound to be some bad apples. Instructors tend to turn a blind eye to minor incidents of bullying and so it will be up to you to prevent it as best you can. Of course, if you have the kind of strength to stop a bully, well you might just turn out to be one yourself...

Test Taking

Test-Taking is a very specialized skill, but an incredibly useful one to have in an academic environment. It involves the art of knowing how to frame an essay, when to bluff your way past some hazy facts, why professors biases are important, and even what goes into cheating - even if you're too ethical to ever use that particular weapon
