    Oh MAN! I can't get home until 5 at the earliest. But I'll be with you in magical spirit. And let me know if there are things I need to know!

    I have a question, and forgive me if it's already been answered. There's a lot of info to sift through!

    How do you handle TMs that flux in their given Order (e.g.- I specialize in Water, and change to Fire)? Is it just as simple as "put on different color robes, then"? Will there be a process for upper management to track/accept members changing Orders? What about those that should have started out in a particular Order (e.g. - most new mages would be Red Mages due to their training in Fire), but have explicitly expressed intent to specialize elsewhere?

    Perhaps the lack of such a process is currently intentional, to be later defined by Head Magis, and is designed, among other things, to create room for Outlaw Magi to move more freely at the start until the system is better locked down?

    Am I just overthinking it? Entirely possible.

    Would love to hear your input in any case!

    The Master of the Tower of High Sorcery will return soon. He is currently on a sojourn of great importance.

    House Serenite of Grunvald is seeking advice and guidance on having a sanctioned Tower of High Sorcery. We understand that @Daevin Aruth is away.

    Please contact me at your earliest convenience to discuss. I have had some discussions with @Cassyr Dubois regarding the Towers.

    Thank you.

    Apologies for the size of that. I have had discussions with @Cassyr Dubois (disclosure: he and I discuss other matters), and although I was unsure where <House Serenite of Grunvald>'s interests lie with regard to the newly built Obsidian Tower in Serenite, this perhaps has made it clearer to me. I look forward to discussing matters with other members of the Conclave to arrive at a decision on where our new Tower may go along this journey to becoming a Tower of High Sorcery.

    Great adaptation of the Tower of Sorcery concept to SOTA! I've been to Rifts End and was very impressed by the layout btw. Now my questions :

    1) Is there a minimum level to achieve in the magic school of your choice?
    2) How many times can you take the Test ?
    3) I have put up a small library in Breaker's Landing and have dedicated the 3rd floor to Arcane & Esoteric lore. Would it be possible to copy some books from the Great Library if I was a member ?
    4) The strictures on impersonation of a TM member sounds like there is going to be PvP or limited PvP - will there be ? (I think that's a great idea !)
    5) Unfortunately , I don't have Elven robes - is there some alternate clothing type that I can dye to match the colors of my Order ?

    Many thanks!

    The new year is upon the precipice of the Towers of High Sorcery. Activity and interest is increasing. If you are a Mage and have an interest in what you have been reading in this thread I encourage you to reply, ask questions and become involved and as interest grows so does the influence and standing of the Towers of High Sorcery in the world of Novia.

    What can people look forward to in 2017? These are a few things that you will see.... Towers of High Sorcery will be expanding as more Towers are sanctioned. The shelves of the Great Library becoming populated with lore and useful information. Advancing more quickly in your magic school of choice as you adventure with Grandmasters from the Towers of Sorcery and much more waiting to be revealed....

    I found the guidance of Grandmaster Cassyr Dubois of the Black Tower very helpful. I'd like to thank both him and Grandmaster Aruth for the time they have put into this and would encourage mages to look into this opportunity for learning and adventure.
