Since the time of yore, witches and wizards alike have attended the various schools of magic. The best of which, only accept the best of the best they could find. Though most attend the lower schools.

Rising among them are the students of Madam Guinevere's Academy. The students that come here are of all levels of talent, but the students that leave invariably are unmatched by any other in their skills. The best thing the Academy has to offer is it's diversity in magical studies. Everything from summoning, to healing, to the black arts. Only the forbidden arts, or Dark Arts, are not given instruction. Students here learn to master their respective arts, and gain an understanding of the fields they don't specialize in. Every field has its shortcomings and weaknesses however, so choose wisely, young one. For once you begin your journey, all of your time will be devoted to specializing in your field.
