The very foundation of the Red Academy quakes, the groaning of masonry grinding against masonry, eliciting the attention of all in the vicinity. Even the Rashemi servants, corralled nearby, pause their toiling to peer up at the looming structure with the sound.  The tremors are accompanied by prismatic displays of light that brilliantly pulsate their residual arcane energies through each window that adorns the enormous stone institute.

Minutes later, an exodus of Mulan and Rashemi are observed exiting the facilities, research tomes and academic reagents tucked precariously under their arms as they hastily scuffled from the immediate area.  Rumors swirl within the arcane community of the Red Academy that Zulkir Vahir, the notoriously mercurial head of the department of Necromancy, has purged his current faculty and students after the nebulous incident within the bowels of the academic institution.

Several hours later, the countryside of Hazlan is riddled with posted advertisements.  The void created by the expulsion of faculty and students creating a unique opportunity for those of arcane disciplines.  The Red Academy, particularly the department of Necromantic Thaumaturgy, is aggressively seeking applicants for their upcoming curriculum.


Quote
Arcanists and Thaumaturgists,

The renown academic institute of the arcane, The Red Academy of Hazlan, is currently employing an open enrollment period to all viable candidates.  The area of expertise and study pertains to the manipulation of life forces, traditionally labeled as studies of Necromantic Thaumaturgy.   Prior faculty and students exhibited an insipid grasp of the complexities of the art, coupled with lackadaisical focus.  If you demonstrate proper noetic aptitudes, ambition, and vision, I encourage you to apply for enrollment.

Prior faculty that requests transfers need only send penned correspondence for admittance.  All others should scribe their intentions using the following format:

Name:
Region of Origin:
Ethnicity:
Current arcane aptitudes:
Primary focus of study:
Miscellaneous, pertinent information:


Innovation of thought and discernment of tongue are valued traits.  Befuddlement of the two concepts are not.  If you seek arcane enlightenment and are studious, you will find no other institute more suitable to your talents than the Red Academy.  Those of twisted, wretched origins, such as the despicable Caliban, require sponsorship prior to consideration.  Mulan applicants are preferable, though Rashemi and other descents will receive diligent evaluation.

Submit your application to Administrator Daher with your location for return correspondence

[Notices are posted throughout the Academy's interior, several of the parchments reaching the immediate countryside.  In exquisite penmanship, the Vaasi advertisements proclaim an upcoming lecture to be held within the walls of the Red Academy.]

Quote
Faculty and Students of the Department of Necromantic Thaumaturgy,

The lecture, A Primer on Necromancy and Reanimated Physiology, will be held in the coming evening within the enclosed stone walls of the basement of the Red Academy.  Faculty and students' attendance of the Necromantic Thaumaturgy department is mandatory, unless a valid reason is provided for absence. 

All guests wishing to attend the lecture require prior authorization and approval by a member of the Red Wizards.

The land surrounding the Red Academy of Ramulai prickles with hackle-raising, pulsating arcane energies.  Nearby beasts are unnerved, struggling against bit and bridle or means of confinement while the rashemi serfs shiver and move to distance themselves from the looming institute of the arcane.  The massive structure is nearly vibrant with the bustling of activity.  Within the confines of the Red Academy, the Red Wizards congregate in the entry foyer awaiting the start of the inaugural seminar of Necromantic Thaumaturgy, at least since the purging of the prior faculty and students.

Rumor spreads among students and staff of the Red Academy that Instructor Mentalos Za'am has adopted one of the apprentices as his lawful son. The crippled hunchback previously known as Tubur Dorsum now presents himself as Mumed Za'am, the now legitimate heir to the Za'am name and estate.

A small, unsightly being is seen taking meals up to the residence quarters of the Red Academy in regular intervals. Large feasts that are delivered multiple times a day with impeccable timing to a lone room. After each delivery, the loathsome servant returns to the bowls of the Academy's library, tirelessly assisting and combing through theoretical essays that seldom see the light of candle.

A Young Woman arrives at the gates of the Red Academy, escorted by two men wearing dark suits showing a Black Hand on them.
She follows them with her gaze for long as they depart.
Finally she walks trought the gates asking for audience.

Quote
Faculty and Students of the Department of Necromantic Thaumaturgy,

While we are heavily inundated with our research and validation of proposed individual treatises, an opportunity for an unparalleled necromantic innovation awaits implementation, trial, and empirical observation.  As we stand of the precipice of discovery, it is imperative that we are reminded that practical application and judicious study are the foundations of our arcane pursuits.  As such, the exalted Zulkir Vahid has called a mandatory assembly of all faculty and students in one day's time. All students are advised to prepare for both laboratory utilization and experimentation as well as make preparations for a minor jaunt outside the stone halls of our illustrious institution.

Guest attendance is strictly forbidden unless authorized and approved by a member of the faculty or were granted admittance to previous lectures.

As a reminder, all guests that are permitted upon the premises of the Red Academy are to be monitored and escorted at all times.  Let the recent consequences levied upon Student Mumed Za'am's guest as a result of his negligence and ineptitude serve as a reminder that violation of the sanctity and guidelines of this Arcane Institution is forbidden under the strictest of penalties.

The stone halls of the Arcane Institution reverberate with the hushed whispers of rumors.  Word had suffused throughout the faculty and student body that the once disreputable instructor has found significant favor, earning him the prestige and title of Senior Instructor.  Surreptitious, veiled comments that previously held furtive snickers and derisive slander between students as the Red Wizard, Mentalos Za'am, hobbled about the corridors, was now filled solemn reverence at his stratum obtained.  The incessant banter of inquisitive chatter speculate if it is related to the sudden jubilant demeanor of the corpulent and typically sullen Zulkir Vahid.  Though none of these claims can be substantiated.

In addition, to the enrolled student body that have yet to submit a treatise, you have until the end of the week to send written correspondence in the form of your hypothesis and abstract or be dismissed as prospective candidates.  If you lack the ambition and drive to further your own research, you serve no purpose towards the collective objectives of the most illustrious arcane institution, The Red Academy.

The spires of the Red Academy and the streets of Ramulai prickle and crackle with arcane energies as the ramparts themselves are aglow with a nimbus of light during the twilight hours.  Various serfs are seen scattering into the fields and nearby forests, dark silhouettes dispersing along the horizon.  As the dawn’s rays illuminated the city streets, a grisly scene was brought to light.  Hazlanis were butchered in droves, their blood seeping into the crevices of the cobblestones and coalescing with the pooling rain to paint the alleys and main thoroughfares in a diluted, pale vermillion. 

The assorted littered bodies were as varied as their remains:  many cleaved and sundered by a blade and others charred and eroded from flame and caustic elements.  The smell that permeated the air so repulsive that even the most resolute and iron-stomached were given cause to retch.  The energies that flittered upon the streets were palpable, eliciting the flaring of goose-flesh upon those that traversed the avenues enshrouded by the long shade of the spires of the Red Academy.  Word spread like wildfire of the two assailants, one a deformed, diminutive green-skinned abomination and the other a human, foreign agent.  Still others speculate that they recognize the tattered and blood-saturated attire of the abomination, red robes signifying one of the Red Academy’s own.   Their lifeless husks were carried back to the Red Academy by the stationed garrison - forms disappearing into the enigma encased in intricate masonry.

As serfs toiled to retrieve the dead for proper burial and futilely pushed about the flooding of soiled puddles of crimson, once more the Red Academy’s stonework bristled with energy before growing eerily silent.  In the hours that followed, a sniveling, gaunt figure clad in the crimson robes of a Red Wizard was seen scurrying through the streets and into the wilderness.  He clutched tightly to a stack of tomes and various personal effects, precariously balancing his possessions and repositioning his spectacles upon his aquiline nose.  In his wake, word of Administrator Daher’s expulsion had reached the ears of all those who dwell within Ramulai.

Quiet.

That has been the state of the Red Academy from the outsider perspective, the rampage of Ramulai that had ravaged the city seemed to be all but the happenings of the Academy. It has been anything but quiet in the Red Academy, with Instructors preparing a new set of experiments for a potential influx of would be students from not just Hazlan, but across the Core wishing to study at the illustrious Red Academy. Fliers begin to spread not just in Ramulai or Hazlan, but across the Core and despite the proficiency and fluency of the Vaasi penmanship, a keen eye of a native of Hazlan would recongise a foreign hand is at play of the announcement.

Miscellaneous, pertinent information:

If you seek to expand your knowledge of the arcane and are studious, you will find no other institute more suitable to your talents than the Red Academy.  Those of twisted, wretched origins, such as the despicable Caliban, require sponsorship prior to consideration.  Mulani applicants are desirable, though Rashemi and other lesser origins will be evaluated.

Submit your application to the Red Academy with your location for return correspondence.

[Hazlik's city - etched and formed from the bedrock of Mount Soren - echoes with the sounds of thundering hooves and creaking wheels of a hastily drawn carriage.
 Mud and strewn earth litter the cobblestone streets in a trail that abruptly terminates at the spires of the Red Academy.  Hushed, furtive rumors speak of Lady Eleni of Toyalis, herself, departing from the opulent carriage accompanied by her man-servant, Zaglaive.  Orders, vitriol filled decrees, were barked upon her arrival and the massive cyclopean gate to Ramulai was secured - A heavy wooden barricade hefted against the mass of wood that served as the threshold between Ramulai and the Hazlani wilderness.

No one is to enter or leave until decreed by Hazlik's trusted apprentice deems it so.

Eleni's arrival crests upon a wake of anxiety - the sparse residents of the city move with renewed purpose and tremble at the faintest of disturbances.]

Ramulai's cyclopean gates thrown unceremoniously open – the Hazlani lands erupt into a din of battle that echoes into the nighttime firmament.  Loud invocations, steel clashing, and eruptions of the earth itself quake through the lands.  Turmoil spills out upon the landscape.

The grass surrounding the Red Wizard's city was trampled by heavy boots, spackled with viscera, and saturated with blood.  Processions of soldiers and arcanists combed the wilderness with urgency as horns blared. The dead were collected, their remnants left for the rain to wash away clean. Come dawn, the serfs returned to the fields as the patrols were intensified – all roads heavily traversed by armored brigades of soldiers.

As the thunderous hooves, snapping of reins, and creaking of wooden carriage wheels faded into the distance from Ramulai, rumors swirled of the felled abomination carried back to the monolithic tower and the wretched construct’s prominence in the ire of the governing Lady and her abrupt departure. The speculation was left to simmer – though, undoubtedly, a pound of flesh owed will always be collected in Hazlan.

Tales swirl upon the lips of students at the Academy of the newest class project of Instructor Mumed Za'am, some sort of golem made of flesh and encased in metal. From tongue to ear and back again, the tales grow wilder.

"I heard it ripped Nazara's limbs off." - the student faculty.
