Out of Character:

I have always believed that education is the cornerstone to community, and that community is the cornerstone to growth. Because of this, it has always been an aspiration of mine to find a way to help encourage interaction between individuals and guilds, allowing us to further our knowledge and promote a cause, all on one platform. This academy provides a place for just that platform. Here, we can set politics and economy and pursue a better understanding of that which binds us in the first place, technology.

If that the field of technology holds some of the greatest promise for mankind today, so why not for Elyria? In our world, technology is always advancing in almost every direction. If we were to apply a similar approach in Elyria, (by coming together at this project) we can make sure that by working together, we will always be at the forefront of those advancements, constantly remaining a step ahead and keeping the wheel of technology turning.


Short story:

Going through his father’s desk, Usif found that for, the most part, things were actually less chaotic than he had prepared himself for. It would seem that during his descent into the clouded state that he eventually did not return from Usifan had been proactive, he must have realized his health was failing and almost all of the most important papers were already transferred into the capable hands of his privy council. All that was left were the notes that he wrote to himself before bed in the last few months of his illness, and while they were painful reminders of his poor failing mental health, they were otherwise easy to sort through and discard.

As he threw parchment after parchment into the hearthside his hands fell over a large scroll, clearly indented by furious scratching of a quill, but otherwise illegible from the twin stains covering the entirety of the front side, one the unmistakable opaque onyx of spilt ink, and the other what could have almost been blood but was too purple still for its age, clearly marking it as a deep, velvet red wine.

Even in the end, this kind of disorder was out of character for his father, but so was the length of the writing beneath it. Most of the notes in this desk were mundane quips about the day, “Saw Duke Magnus’s newest child. It seemed more intelligent than him already, but I guess it would only take 4 days to accrue the amount of knowledge that he has in a lifetime,” making this all together an interesting find.

As Usif contemplated what to do with this irregular find his sister swept into their father’s chamber. She had foretold that this would be a day of discovery and couldn’t resist responding to her brother’s inquisitive aura. “I feel you have come across something of great importance dear Brother. Please, share your discovery with your sister,” she breathed, coming to look over his shoulder.

“It’s nothing dear Sister I am sure, however this parchment is just so out of place among the others. My thoughts have lingered on it as you yourself linger over your crystals. I have completed my task. The desk is cleaned. And yet, here I stand, still grasping this soiled scrap of refuse.”

An ever inquisitive and open spirit, Tulipa had much more faith in her brother’s intuition than he had. She reminded him of this, and of his strength of intelligence and spirit, as she reached for the parchment.

The moment her delicate fingers graced the page the room around her became dark as if twilight. The candles flickered. Some flickered out. Looking up, she could see her father sitting at the desk in front of her, his glass of wine curiously full and his face sagging with untold misery. Her heart broke and she sent her spirit out to him. As her light enveloped his diminished spirit, she saw him blink, as if becoming awake for the first time, before hurriedly shuffling the papers on his desk into a pile, stuffing them into a drawer. He took out a fresh piece of parchment and began to scribble wildly. The plans for his legacy were etched into Tulipa’s mind as if her thoughts themselves were the parchment, and before her brother even realized that she had fallen away from him, she blinked and returned to the present, the sunlight still shining into the now closed window.

She clutched Usif’s arm with a gasp and closed her eyes, she could still see the plans for her father’s academy laid out in full detail, wine and ink hovering around the sentences in wet streams, just waiting to fall. “Brother,” she clung to him for support, and he gave her strength, unfazed by the clairvoyant episode. “Our father was a man of great intelligence and great compassion. He has left us with a plan to make sure that those attributes are associated with him and our family for the rest of time. I have seen the plan, and we will carry it through.”

Angelica's Academy

To Seek Knowledge in all forms, and instill knowledge in all Mann



Introduction:

Welcome to The Angelica Academy of Technology and Innovation, the prestigious center for education, research and betterment. We are honoured to be able to offer you the best support in all aspects of technological development, from resources to community. Here, you will find a thriving environment of bright minds that have come together to share, support, and encourage each other while we advance the progress of the technology that brought us together to begin with. All are welcome to come and teach, learn, research and explore their passions in various fields at the Angelica Academy. By working together, we know that we will have the best chance to truly push the limits of our understanding. Join us, as we truly test the boundaries of knowledge and ability in technological innovation.

Why has the Academy been found?

The Angelica Academy of Technology and Innovation was founded by Usif and Tulipa in order to stand forever as a memory of their father, Duke Usifan. This academy reflects his excellence as a collaborative, compassionate, innovative and respected leader. In the same way that Duke Usifan served his Duchy and encouraged his people to work together to serve their kingdom, the Angelica Academy will bring education to the people of Dilmunia and its neighboring cities to offer them the best support as they research, discover and generally advance the knowledge of technology to better serve their kingdom.

It will also play a vital role in preserving the current culture and knowledge of the land. Our extensive library holds and protects essential records and the most up to date maps of Elyria in the library.

Why the name Angelica?

The Academy was named after the divine creator Angelica. Much like the goddess once felt the cold and solitude of the universe and acted to bring warmth, colour, and light to the world, the Angelica Academy is a reprieve from the selfish, cold and socially cut off society that has started taking over our world. It is a place to join all of our lights as individuals and guilds in order to become one shining beacon of knowledge and community.

To whom has it been found?

While the Angelica Academy of Technology and Innovation is incredibly prestigious, we are proud to offer a limit free environment to all members. Everyone is welcomed to join the academy whether they be a student or a teacher or a scholar or a researcher. The question is not of who you are or what you bring to the table, but instead, it is of how passionate you are to learn, disseminate knowledge and innovate the technologies of Elyria.

Available departments: At the Angelica Academy of Technology and Innovation we understand the importance of developing knowledge in multiple fields in order to come together as a whole eventually inspire the advancement of our kingdom. With this in mind we offer rooms to serving as schools for every field required. There will be no discipline that is seen as less or more, rather a multitude of discipline working together to become the best.

Anyone can register, whether it be a guild or an individual to take charge of a certain school. Each school is tailored to a specific audience, and in order to have an audience one must have a teacher. At the Angelica Academy we understand that there is no real difference between a teacher and a student, except that one is willing to learn and one is willing to share. We understand here that those two things are not mutually exclusive, and we invite you and/or your guild to come and learn and teach with us.

Available Ranks:

🌷 The Academy Chancellor

reports to the Duke directly and holds a permanent seat in the Duke’s privy council

🌷 chronicler scribbler

🌷 School teachers/masters will be selected depending on the registered schools

These will include individuals and/or guilds
