Errant Academy

Ready your steel and steady your arm

The sun peaks across the spires of Kingswatch, not quite banishing the morning mists across the courtyard of the College. The groundskeeper continues his preparation from the night before. The man grunts as he combs the sand with his iron rake, trims the yard with shears. His timburr companion wipes sweat from his brow as he erects the pen and the the bleachers for later that morning.

The fresh students to the College of Logic will be arriving in just a few hours for their entrance ceremony. Those who study here do more than learn from texts and studying past battles. They study not just how to fight but the process of a war, command, troop movement, siege building, fortifications even administration and supply detail.

Nobles, merchant princes, squires of the Gilded Fist's, fools who follow the Bloody Icon into battle, and even commoners lucky enough to have a patron are joining the ranks soon enough. Many who join the ranks of the College go on to live careers as high ranking officials in the Adairslen military, use their knowledge to run their own mercenary companies or use it to springboard their political careers.

The College also uses it's students as a form of mercenary band as part of their training. Many of noble blood opt to wave this rite and instead stick to the more traditional offerings. The College rents those who join their band out to those with enough coin and political clout. Facing bandits in the hills, or even just herding away migratory pokemon from croplands are both common tasks.

The groundskeeper shakes his head his work long from being done. Wiping the sweat from his face with a rag he leans on his rake staring at the rising sun through the spires. His voice echos in the mists as be begins to rake the sand once more.

'Crowns are for the valiant—sceptres for the bold!
Thrones and powers for mighty men who dare to take and hold.'
