Frostwarts
School of Many Things


What is Frostwarts?
Frostwarts aims to Collect, Create and Educate.
To Collect books, objects of significance, and knowledge.
To Create new books and new friends.
To Educate the young and old who wish to learn and reward them for their efforts.

Frostwarted Headmaster Kublai is running this endeavor.

Their motto: Through
Knowledge, Gain Wisdom, To Find Truth.

Frostwarts has played host to many lessons and makes its many books available to all.
Find its entire collection of books [HERE].


Frostwarted Points:
All books written within the walls worthy of the library will receive 500 radiants payment and the author will receive a Frostwarted Point.
Students may also earn points by attending lessons, writing notes, and other exceptional favors to the School as decided by any teacher.
When enough points are collected, they will allow you special privileges within the school, such as access to restricted sections.
The points tally up on a student score-board for all to see, to encourage students to study and learn (see bottom thread).
The highest reward is an official Frostwarts certificate for graduated Scholar. This is considered a symbol of status and prestige!


Location:
Situated within the cold walls of Halbed. From Storm's Landing you take the boat directly in front of the Tavern and sail to Halbed, then you walk to the most South-Western point in the city, within the city walls. You've arrived at Frostwarts.

Backstory:
Many a person has asked the headmaster of Frostwarts how the school got by its name. The tale tells of an old deranged man sitting on the very site where the people wished to build the school. He would not move, not for money, not for food, not for shelter. His only desire was that the school was to be called 'Frostwarts', after which he'd give a very peculiar chuckle. The moment the headmaster sent a letter to Halbed's officials that he had agreed to call the school Frostwarts, the moment it was put black on white, was the moment the man had disappeared. Nobody had seen him leave or knows where he went.

In his place, instead, were a few insignificant old items that he wore on his person. This gave rise to rumors among students that the old man is still sometimes seen walking naked through the school grounds. The abandoned items have since become heirlooms to the school and may be obtained by anyone who studies at Frostwarts through very unexpected means. An item could present itself to them in a time of need, it could magically appear in a reward for a feat, or it can be randomly stumbled upon by pure chance of luck.

These items are known to possess magical properties in the theme of their origin and always display the blue and white colors of Frostwarts' banner.

Lessons at Frostwarts:
Being educated here is not at all boring! Frostwarts staff endeavor to make every lesson a fun experience!
You won't be sitting in class all day, rather; the staff will make each lesson as interactive as possible.
In between lessons, you got plenty secrets to explore, books to read in the library, or help Kublai on some crazy adventures.
To become a student, simply come to Frostwarts and start attending lessons!
When you're interested to stay at the school, ask Kublai for a bed in the Common Room.

To host a lesson at Frostwarts, just contact me and I'll make an event for it! :)

Divine Presence:
During the Herbology lesson by Daeron, Shalheranna blessed the Greenhouse, making all the plants flourish and grow to full health, regardless of their former states.

At a secret meeting within Frostwarts lead by Ardaric, Visage appeared through smoke and mirrors before the present group and accepted their sacrifices, disappearing again but not before telling those present to follow a certain individual in their midst.

Ventare Seymour summoned a Spectre in the foundations of Frostwarts with the protection of The Grey Lady.


Reflected a proposed deal for people within Frostwarts to be paid for letting blood in a bottle and thus providing sustenance to Vyres. Kublai prioritized the safety of his students and the very school.

Update, my friends! After the last Nid Arach event, I'll start hosting lesson events.
Not boring classrooms where one person talks and the others stay silent, but lessons where everyone can PARTICIPATE!
Tagging the active followers: Jase Torgorbash Tideborne Cymic_

Lessons at Frostwarts:
Being educated here is the opposite of boring. Frostwarts staff endeavor to make every lesson an amazing experience!
You won't be sitting in class all day, rather; the staff will take the knowledge right into practice.
For every lesson that you've completed successfully, you'll get a +1 during any lesson related /roll.
The more you study at lesson events, the more practiced you'll become, the greater your chances of success!
Once you've reached +10 on every roll, you can become a teacher yourself and host events of your own making!
A scoreboard will show the score of each pupil.
