Silvershield Academy was an idea from a single man,
which dreamt of a place for all to teach
and learn the arcane arts, and train both body and mind.
A sight to behold, the Academy has been created in the old Aldmeri ruins of what once was castle Silvershield on the island east of Auridon. Cleaned up and adjusted for habitation it is now ready to be used for your magical pursuits!
The ruins had been abandoned for long enough that nature has begun to take over certain parts of the building. Some might call the image it gives charming, mystical or endearing... servants most likely consider it a nightmare to manage.
The very heart of the building, it leads to the main rooms of the academy. It is the first room every student needs to pass as they are welcomed to the academy.
Old Wise Man - further down the hall stands a lone silhouette - a statue of an old, lonely man, came to known as the Old Wise Man. For students of sharp wit and cunning, the statue holds a challenge:
Burn the candles before the statue at noon or midnight and you will be asked a riddle. Should you guess right, the path to the mysterious Headmaster's office will be opened up for you! And what mysteries await you there...?
Rare tomes and grimoires can be found in the library but beware of the ancient evil which might wait behind the covers of some...
...no, we are joking. They are absolutely safe...
...or are they?
Would you like to test your newly gained skills or spells in a duel with your fellow student?
Or perhaps you were looking for a place to practice?
The Duelist Room is for you! Just... do not bump into one of the levitating candles, for your own safety*
*...you would be surprised how quickly robes can catch fire.
...the heart of the part-... *cough*... the main room for students to learn, integrate and meditate on their upcoming tasks.
Offers 3 beds for students and one Prefect bed, to make sure that no mischief or any kind of shenanigans will happen during the evening.
Kitchen & dining room
The cook is waiting for your orders! Would you like meat... beets, salad? It will be brought to you - during the dining hours...
...it is rumored though that those who thought to challenge the cook entered the kitchen, but never returned...
What do we offer?
- A place for you to do your magical RP, interact with fellow students and enjoy the student/teacher environment.
- Assignments, jobs and professions for students to pick from.
- Field Missions to test your skills (events!)
- Freedom of choosing how you want to spend your academy life
- An environment that encourages you to come up with your own event ideas, with all the support you need.
- Bi-weekly Academy-wide event triggers, which will be posted on Discord. To give an example:
Week 1: You hear gossip that during one of the classes, a summoning circle has been broken, freeing a Scamp into the academy! The kitchen has been a mess ever since and food quality in the kitchen has been lowered!
What can you, as a player do about it? You can bring the gossip into your RP (perhaps the quality of food has been lowered ever since? RP it out!) or organise your own hunting party, bring the scamp's head to one of the teachers and earn yourself a Best Student Award!
- Myths and Legends system: every school has its own ghosts and legends... would you like to become a mythbuster and hunt some of the legends on your own...? Just beware of the consequences - perhaps uncovering some secrets will require certain sacrifices... [translation: a dm brought npcs and events to spice up the university life!]
What do we expect from you?
- be proactive, do not expect to be spoonfed content! The academy will have events organised but we hope for the teachers and students to be able to stand up and propose their own events as well! Let's build fun together!
- don't metagame, godemote or ERP on the premises of the academy
- no drama and attentionwhoring on the Discord chats and otherwise. Please save us the migrenes.
- respect for your fellow academy-goers

100. Critical hit! your opponent takes 3 HP damage!
What: Duel of wits When: Thursday, 04/04/2019 at 7 PM CET What is happening?:
Perhaps to test wits of potential studens (and teachers!) or keep herself busy on a Turdas evening, Virvyna decided to prepare some leaflets and posters, inviting all the wise challengers to partake in...
Bring your wits (and your own riddles!) and put yourself to the test against your fellow riddles! The winner will earn themselves eternal glory as The Wittiest Of Them All!
Our Academy is quickly filling in~
Positions of a teacher of Alchemy and Enchanting are still open!
...we have also opened enrolment for this semester!
Q: I would like to be a teacher, not a student! A: Here, in the Academy, everyone is a student - we all learn from one another - and every character comes to our premises with an open mind and eagerness to accept knowledge. Should you wish to offer a teacher, specifically - we still do have two roles open (and, possibly some more, should you wish to teach something less... standard)
Slowly growning in numbers, with some events already in scope for the upcoming weeks...
What kind of events, you ask...?
Field work (aka good ol' advenrturing)
Social events (lectures based on the active involvement of participants, some combat and some unexpected twists!; alchemy classes which might lead to... even strange results; duels, trainings and more...!)
'Living Academy' events - one could say the Academy is an almost living being - it goes through changes and evolves through the storyline. How your character will react to it all...?
