I can see where you came up with that thought. However, all of his abilities, tattoos... are all limited and have draw backs to them. I always place conditionals on my magic in my system. But I will look at it again. Go to Comment
Well, I think mostly the reason it's been rated just average is that it really lacks a certain amount of originality.
In many worlds, especially those wracked by cataclysms or Wars of Gods (a frequent mythology- I wonder why?), there are always ruins that lie open to the sky- I have something like this too, called Phanorion, in one of my older worlds (the king stole a God's daughter, and the city was destroyed for his transgression). This is just another ruined city to use as a convenient, if cliche, plot hook. Go to Comment
I like it! A few questions though. Other than providing training opportunities for its students, does the Academy have any ulterior motive in choosing missions? Does it choose heroic ones, evil ones or try to prop up and support any political factions (perhaps in exchange for money)? Also, is mission selection up to some central body or the individual tutors?
Also, even though the students donâ€™t know, how many people in the outside world realise what the Academy is doing? I would imagine quite a few have figured it out. What might they think of it when they do? If the Academy does have some overall political goal (or even if their students just happened to thwart someone in one mission) this could seriously affect the way some factions view the Academy.

I think the academy mightb ecome a mere pawn if it sell it services too often and does not show some backbone - its voice no longer commanding respect but rather provoking a smirk or frown. Go to Comment
