The Institute of Terathia is here to teach you about the different worlds and help you achieve your full potential as a sorcerer. It is an academy supported by the Council of the Light, also known as the Government of Terathia, whose members ensure control and stability over the realm. In helping young sorcerers develop their capacities, they hope to create strong individuals capable of defending both the human and terathian worlds from the numerous threats they are likely to face.
It was almost time for the feast. Like every year, the students would arrive at 8:45 pm sharp, and dinner would be awaiting them in the Hall. It was one of the rare occasions to be close to the wardens, and students often had fun trying to spot new teachers and members of the staff.
They sat at a wide, round table at the centre of the room, discussing subjects and newcomers. Finally, the doors opened, and the students came in, chatting excitedly. Some seemed happy to be back, others a little less. The wardens and the teachers stood up; Sigga gave his yearly speech of welcome, and the students were free to sit and start eating.
Your characters are all in the hall.
