An Unwieldy Beast...
« on: June 28, 2007, 09:52:04 PM »

An unwieldy beast, born from the basic idea that most schools of magic tend to be one dimensional places built around a common conceit, or perception. Magthere D'Faernan is a school of higher learning, not just for mages, though mages make up a large portion of the studies. As a center of knowledge, it is rather normal for nobles and the wealthy merchants to send their offspring of to the school for a year or more just to learn a bit more than tending the ledgers and watching the lists.

It is too big, and makes too many demands of me. I cannot finish the school, yet it stands less than half built, has no history, and no facualty.

Help.

Scras.

Perhaps it should be reworked into a communal effort - a University Strolenica.  I'd contribute Thom Bones and Formuo Magi Savant as persons currently studying/employed at it.

A call could be put out for faculty, projects, special laboratories, students, etc.

That pretty much is the call I've put out for it, yes.

Perhaps Strolen could turn this submission into an open sub that anyone (outside of the horde, of course) could edit, add to and such.

The only issue with doing that would mean that some random Joe Blow member might be able to hop on and remove hours and hours of work that others have done. We'd need a wiki-type rollback system to make it work.

Perhaps that something for v3, eh?
P(A|B) = P(B|A)*P(A)/P(B)

By the power of Bayes!

Easiest is just the Scroll/ Codex though someone should run the 'table of contents' level doc.

Some of the scrolls are really too big - they should be converted into subs themselves so that scrolls can be hung off of them.

Eg:  Classes and Teachers

This scroll should be a sub so that classes and teachers can be added as either scrolls or subs depending upon their size.

Might I suggest you make it into a codex.

Each section of the write up, should be either a full submission or, more likely, each one is a stub.  That way, everything adds to the common whole.

OOOORRRRRRR

You could just make it a scroll.  Break down most of your work to date into scroll submissions. Each scroll header should be about a given topic, and we can comment back and forth about each section then.
