Hazlan - Ramulai - Red Academy
« on: August 27, 2016, 07:45:20 PM »
The halls and laboratories of the Red Academy buzz with renewed vigour. The notorious magical practice of the red wizards, now as much as ever, is plainly evident in the mark it leaves upon the surrounding country; in the thrumming air, and the blasted earth, and the poisoned water... as well as in the paling population of the stone city.

Just beyond the mystic breath and colossal walls of Ramulai, the bursts of sight and sound convey a question to any:

What spurs those minds to current purpose?

A new instructor can be seen strolling the lecture halls and arcane laboratories of the academy. A past graduate himself the mulani-wizard has already successfully lectured a seminar on the use and application of evocation. His slave, Perdiot can often be seen running errands for him to the nearby city of Ramulai. The small ugly gnome has been ordered not to speak or interact with the students or faculty.

A small but attentive class gathers in the basement of the Red Academy at the Summoning Pits in the Conjuration Chamber. The topic, Conjuration and the Five Sub-Schools. The seminar was hosted by the "Esteemed" Instructor, Mentalos Za'am. The lecture was well received by students, faculty and guests alike.

On a rare rainy Hazlani afternoon. A small group of foreigners attended the free seminar on Arcane Dueling. The visiting students seemed pleased with the education.

So great is the disturbance in the Academy's basement that, across the way, even the cold stone of Ramulai's treasury vault shakes. Students gossip of roaring echoing from the basement; though the noise is abated with haste by silencing charms from wizards emerging from the conjuration hall, the intermittent shaking continues afterwards for some time. The quaking comes in an irregular, violent beating, and only ultimately stills the following night.

The stench of brimstone lingers in the conjuration hall for some days afterward, and the acid-scarred masonry of the ruined conjuration pit is soon replaced by Rashemi slaves.

The instructors of the school of Conjuration refuse to offer insight on the disturbance to any students.

The Great Lord Hazlik and his honoured protégé, Eleni of Toyalis, are seen within the halls of the Red Academy. Lady Eleni makes her presence known by intruding upon scheduled lessons, and in the oversight of several experiments. One such experiment leaves the head of Conjuration, Vibeke Tyllesen, a mindless, thoughtless husk, and sees another instructor, Mentalos Za'am, and one nameless, mutilated outsider sent in a caravan from the city in the dead of night.

Rumour among students has it that the three disappointed the grasping Rashemi-born Lady Eleni, who decided to turn the grisly experiment upon them. Further disappointing her, even as test subjects, they were sent to be ultimately disposed of. The truth of this is murky, though, with some saying that Za'am has recently returned to haunt the halls of the Academy- yet without his eyes.

Lady Eleni and Lord Hazlik continue to spend time in the Academy, though each to private engagements.

Strange rumours abound of happenings within the Hall of Conjuration. Equipment and books disappear, doors open and close, strange noises disrupt otherwise silent work. Speculation points to the new head instructor, rotund and bitter Achevok, spending most of his time locked within the library... though what connection this has with the 'hauntings' has yet to be discovered.

Sargon of Thay, fresh apprentice to the new conjuration master is often seen striding the halls, going about business for his master, ofttimes with his elderly slave in tow.
To what dark errands is he commanded? Only time will tell.

Sargon of Thay is seen moving about the school with his slave in tow, fetching small amounts of relatively mundane supplies for some project or another.

Mentalos Za'am, a once beautiful and proud instructor of the academy has locked himself away within his faculty chamber. His classes have been either cancelled or taken over by other instructors. None have seen him although his imp servant has been seen obediently bringing him trays of food and clean laundry.

A foreign man with an iron mask was seen briefly with Lord Hazlik and his entourage outside of the Red Academy, later revealed to be an Enchanter by the name of Sorisk. Master Ipahik Kelner, the head instructor of the school of Illusion took the foreigner under his tutelage. Sorisk was later seen in and around the area with others affiliated with Hazlik's Academy. The masked figure exhibiting great wonder at the facilities he was shown.

Rumor has it that Sargon of Thay returned to the academy after taking his slave to novendall to aquire the advertised body slave. They returned empty handed and Sargon has not hesitated to elucidate as to why:

 A price of a hundred thousand soul orbs for a single slave and a clear lack of respect for the Red Academy, its students and masters and, by extension, the Great Lord himself.

Ipahik Kelner gains another student, replacing the spilled blood of another, earlier in the week. The now-dead student Idrizi was found in the Conjuration pits, eviscerated by a grey render. To appearances, simply an experiment gone wrong, but the bitterest rumour has the incident evidence of a bloody conspiracy: an escalation of the public feud between Conjuration master Gall Achevok, and Illusionist Kelner.

Kelner's new student has yet to show her face in the halls, and her talents are yet unknown.

Rumor has it that it was Sargon of Thay who defeated the Grey Render, suffering some injury in the process but utterly destroying the powerful monster.

Secluded within his laboratory on a restricted floor of the academy the once admired and respected instructor now works feverishly on a new project. One that he hopes will restore his reputation and earn back the favor of his masters.


Surrounded by books, charts, diagrams and mathematical equations, some would ask how a man with no eyes is capable of completing such a task.

Lord Hazlik himself gives a lecture to a full auditorium, citing his displeasure with an undercurrent of what he called "treachery," within the Red Academy. Chained to the floor of the lecture hall, the Great Wizard bid his faithful students put the ancient dead to destruction, making it clear that further underhanded attempts to bring undead into the Academy would result in greater, more ruthless punishment. Blame for the infiltration rests on the lying, fat head of Gall Achevok, who yet retains his position as instructor of Conjuration, for now...

Much activity and bustle around the red academy is observed.

Slaves and the fearsome reagent collection agents of the academy are seen gearing up and venturing into the monster and bandit haunted forests of Hazlan seeking living and dead creatures of unusual properties for the upcoming research of Sargon of Thay, Apprentice (for now, at least) to Gall Achevok.

The call also goes out for slaves who are suffering injuries:
Lost eyes, limbs and diseases or conditions too difficult or costly to cure

The beginning of what now seems like it will be a long process was witnessed at the Red Academy today.
An Idea birthed in screams and blood echoing through the halls, then silence.
Sargon of Thay and his new female slave left soon after.
Rumours swirling around a Rashemi slave, still gibbering in fear, the stump of an arm bandaged, the rotting, diseased mess of what may have been his limb discarded like the trash it was.
The experiments will continue.

A number of slaves of the Academy are seen with large sections of their flesh grey, thin and wrinkled. Despite this, they are talked of as a "great success," and a "great advancement" in Transmutation.

Rumors of the success of Sargon of Thays experiments continue to swirl around the academy.

Stories of a slave, her face and eye previously destroyed by acid left whole and hale,

A eunuch slave returned to full and functioning manhood,

a soldier gifted with an ability sure to earn him promotion and advancement.

It appears there may be a waiting list of volunteers for his next series of experiments.

Envious students boil with ambitious plots, and cunning wizards layer their magic in dangerous traps and schemes of betrayal. The Red Academy turns with life as ever it did and does; lives and reputations created and destroyed in a vicious cycle, each instant either richly rewarding, or deeply deadly. Word whirls around, following recent experiments, and a visit from Hazlik himself. That gossip, short and simple, placing Sargon of Ramulai as the new instructor of Transmutation.

A courier arrives at the Red Academy sometime between dawn and noon. After speaking quietly with one of the guards at the gate, she enters the Academy, bearing only a single sealed letter, seemingly addressed to the Administrator of the Academy. The woman bearing the letter has a grim look on her face, and after leaving it is clear that it was very bad news.

A woman clad in black and purple, bearing both the holy symbol of Shar and a silver collar around her neck, enters the halls of the Red Academy during the night. She is seen headed upstairs, then returns downstairs during the day, looking fully refreshed from her travels. She takes to one wall, standing near the Administrator's office, her head bowed faintly and her hands folded neatly in front of her. She seems to be in waiting, as no one makes a move towards her nor does she make any further moves.
