You've reached the end of your formal training, and while that is an impressive task, the hardest part is yet to come. In return for your training, you are required to serve the guild for a number of years. Your first task, you know, will come today. It will be the test of your training, to see if you have truly understand what you've learned.

The sun rises on a new day, shedding its golden rays to herald a new beginning, another chapter of your life, and the start of your destiny...
And breakfast. The kitchen bell dings loudly, and a few students begin heading to the dining room.


((The breakfast bell is normally the start of the day in the guild, so unless your character is prone to take very early walks or the like, I'd assume you'd all be in your rooms. Therefore...))

The student quarters. Heh. Well, that was something you'd not have to tolerate anymore. They were tiny, crampt, and not especially well kept. They were, however, serviceable. Each one was maybe as large as two closets stuck together. Indeed, some of them seemed to be exactly that.
Each one had a cot, a small chest, and a nightstand, and a lamp.
Yaaaaaay...

Other places you might be...
Gardens.
The gardens are sadly more practical than they might be, but there is a nice little area set off for a more pleasant view. Lots of herbs, magical components, and a few flowers.

Melee Training grounds.
The training grounds are dusty, packed dirt with white circles marked off in different places for katas and duels. There are a few training dummies.

Archery Range.
Um... yeah. Grassy archery range with a large number of targets. Some suspended to be swinging, some that are meant to be animated by mages, some just normal.

Dining Room.
It is a very large cafeteria-esque dining room.

Meditation rooms.
What? It's one of my buildings! All of my buildings have meditation rooms, whether they get used or not. They're classic!
For the use of mages who need to concentrate with blowing things up.

Mystic Chamber.
There are a large number of these in the Mystic Building. The idea is that you use these rooms for casting spell so you can concentrate AND blow things up.

(so get up and moving. Introduce your characters in posts, run around, do stuff, yay)

Tarvaris awakens in his room, and soon dresses himself, before heading to the dining room, and obtaining a simple breakfast. He sits alone at a table and eats slowly.

Herbert rolls over in bed, clutching his pillow in a sad attempt to squeeze a few more minutes of sleep out of it. His valiant attempt a failure, he slides himself out of absurdly large human-sized bed and falls, like always, to the floor. Wiping gook from his eyes he heads for the showers and cleans himself before dressing in his robe.

His brothers would call it a dress, but his brothers were ignorant bumpkins whose opinions don't matter in the least.

Clean and dressed, red hair tied back in an easily-managed ponytail, he heads to the dining room and begins eating a breakfast that would be considered light even for a halfling.

Shylea is a pretty red haired girl. She gets up and goes down to eat breakfast. She is the friendly engaging sort of girl. Always willing to make friends. She meets several friends downstairs for breakfast and they giggle and talk their way through breakfast.

Herbert finishes his meal and pushes his plate to the middle of the table. He hops off of the stool and heads out of the cafeteria, nodding 'good morning' to a group of chatterbox tall-folk.

The don't notice him, as per the usual. He considers setting their shoes on fire, to make them look down, but he decides against it.

Grumbling to himself, he sets off towards the archery range.

Tarvaris just continues to eat, slowly, until he finishes. When he leans back in his chair and contemplates.

Shylea and her friends don't notice him, of course. He probably isn't popular and if he isn't cute? Well, they don't notice anyone who's not cute. They linger over breakfast until a teacher shoos them out of the dining area. They head for the Garden area to wait until they're called.

((oh and Shylea is a half-elf))

((That and he's three feet tall. You know, I hadn't meant for the group that had ignored him to be Shylea's group.

But it's funnier this way.))

The archery range is a large, open area with a number of chalked white lines for students to stand on when firing at targets. They are placed at increasing levels of difficulty.
Across the range there are, as said before, a large number of targets. Small classic targets, large classic targets, humanoid shaped targets, animal shaped targets, targets hanging in the air that can be swung, mannequin targets for animating and shooting... you name it.


A lot of flowers seem to be in bloom within the garden- more than normal, at least. A small, loose stone walkway winds among a large number of practical, bushy plants, some vines... pretty much anything you might need.

Soon, Tarvaris gets up and wanders to the meditation chambers, where he sits and thinks.

Shylea and her friends are interested in gossiping and giggling, not in actually working. Who's cute today, who was cute yesterday...

Herbert finds an empty section of the range where he can be by himself to think.

And blast the humanoid targets.

He stands at the white line and focuses on the power that is his heritage. He feels it like he always does, the burning pool at the base of his skull, the fire in his blood, flowing through him, making him more than his brothers, despite their teasing.

Power.

More focus. His mind empties of everything but the heat, the power at his control. He raises his right hand and extends a gloved finger. A single beam, thin. It erupts from his finger like a bullet from a Gnomish gun and streaks towards the target.

The target gets hits on one of the outer areas.
Tarvaris may find an orc in the meditation chambers, who looks like he is constipated.
Or focusing really hard, either one.

Tarvaris looks at the orc and hmms, but continues to another which isn't taken.

A teacher moves over to the orc and puts a hand on his shoulder.
Have you seen anything?
Dere idn't addyting da shee. It judt wall an bahk of eyelids!
The teacher sighs.
Maybe you should reconsider trying to become a seer...
I shee judt fine!
The teacher quickly leads the orc out before he disturbs anyone else.

Herbert lowers his hand and swears under his breath. He had been aiming for the head, not the shoulder. Nobody would respect him if that was the best that he could do.

Tarvaris sits, cross-legged, in a chamber. Contemplating.

Herbert grinds his teeth and aims his hand, palm-forward and fingers spread, at the target.

Same process. Heat pools in the base of his skull and lights his blood afire. He forces the energy into his hand and...

Releases it at the target dummy.

Literally.

The halfling smiles and pumps his fist.

"Much better."

Tarvaris finishes his meditation and gets up, before going out of the chambers and to the gardens.

Smiling to himself, Herbert turns away from the archery range and heads towards the gardens.

Tarvaris sits at a bench, if there is one, and looks at who he can see.

Tarvaris finds one of the two benches in the garden.
