    Default AVB - The Forgotten One

    This thread is for Lexin and GM(s) only. Do not read it otherwise!

    Moving northeast towards Guildsman, he sees numerous shops, a few fancier houses, and lots of places to spend money. The closer to Guildsman that he gets, the less fancy and more utilitarian the buildings become. Further down the road, the buildings appear to become workshops and smithies and the like rather than the retail shops, taverns, inns, and living spaces common in Midtown.

    He stops for a second, absorbing the view... remembering it as well as possible. It is always useful to remember places...

    He walks towards the workshops, looking around for a Guildhouse, or something similar to alchemist lab or a shop if the first is not around.

    He checks some of them if they are alchemist- oriented.

    (Starting from Valerik Leonideov and Magic)

    If he finds one:

    "Morning my good sir. I am new in the city and would like to know if there is a guild, organizing efforts of alchemists here, or do they all work independently?"

    "Well, I've never heard of an alchemy guild, so I'd suspect they belong to one of the three major magic guilds in the city or maybe a trade guild or could be independent, I suppose. If you're interested in alchemical goods though, I'm certain I have just what you're looking for."

    "Not this time I am afraid, but I will bear your offer in my mind and will surely come back here in subsequent days.
    For now, thank you for your help."


    He leaves the shop and wanders around the city, looking for a magic guild this time, preferably finding one which is open to psionic powers users.
    As he doesn't know the city well, he begins looking from the academy mentioned by he guard in the Plaza.

    Do he wander randomly about where he is or does he ask for directions while walking? Depending on what you do specifically determines entirely what happens next.

    You back track to the Plaza and then head north west in the direction of the university. You quickly find it to your left at the edge of Old Town just as you reach the walls surrounding the Nobles' Quarter. A large, wrought iron gate stands open in front of the campus, topped by a sign which reads "Aldhaven Royal University of Scientific Esoterica." It seems as if there is a student organization fair going on at this very moment. A large sign points the way to the registration office.

    Lanakhad looks around for a while, with a bit confused expression. Finally he decides to check the registration office.
    He enters and tries to find out as much as possible about this place. If there are written materials he looks through them, if not, he just check if there is an information office on the way, or just talks to people in registration office.

    "Greetings, I am new in town and currently looking for an association gathering users of powers such as psionics or arcane. I was suggested that I could find one right here. Is that correct?"

    The only people you can see inside the registration office are the students waiting in line to get into the lady's office doing the registration.

    There is a small table near the door with a copy of a course catalogue chained to the table so that no one can steal it.

    Yes and No. It really depends on how you do it as to whether or not it's illegal. There are very few things that are outright illegal; however, using them in certain situations are illegal. The laws are varied and nuanced and hard for outsiders to grasp without spending excessive amounts of time studying them. People who grow up in the city just kind of learn how things are as they grow up.
    You spot a member of the City Watch and ask him.

    "Yeah, just head back toward the Plaza. There will be a cul de sac on your left in about a block. The Guild is in there. Tall tower, looks out of place. You can't miss it."
