Lands of Astoria
Tegrian Magic Academy
The Tegrian Magical Academy is the highest place of arcane learning in Tegria. It is located in the Tegrian capital, Ballinor, and is a grand, walled campus. Among its faculty are some of the greatest magical minds of Astoria. Entry to the Tegrian Magical Academy is completely free for anyone who can already demonstrate some form of magical ability. Thus, those who wish to become Wizards will often apprentice to Wizard for a few years before heading to the academy. Most students study at the academy for 19 years before they are officially entered on to the Registratus Arcanus, the magical document which lists every magic user in Tegria and allows them to be contacted. After 10 years, formal training and classes end and students can go on to ply their ability across Astoria, or stay at the academy for further study. Many also enter different areas of the Tegrian military, serving in one of the Arcane Battalions. The Academy serves as an important factor in Ballinor's defense, because having so many novice and experienced magic users within the city can deter even the staunchest of foes.
