The Hightower Institute for Magical Learning is a college of magic that doesn’t just specialize in wizarding magic; but accepts all forms of magical study, be it practical or theoretical learning. Students will spend a majority of their time in classes an sleeping on campus but when free they can visit the surrounding city, a magic trading empire, where they can spend downtime to further study, craft, find employment and quests or even just carouse in the city’s underbelly of sin and debauchery.

Hightower Institute will take on a variety of students no matter their background or ability to pay for tuition so long as they have a talent and a willingness to learn and follow the institutes code of conduct. Hightower works alongside many religious temples, sects, and communities to take in not only those with a wizarding background but druidic, clerical or bardic. In the case of those who lack magic they will not be turned from the gate but equally accepted as the school not only teaches how to control one’s magic but also how to combat or defend oneself against it and properly wield magical items and knowledge. There is a place for everyone, no matter their race or creed so long as they have something to offer.


As the new year of students join, they will quickly learn that there are sinister goings on behind the scenes which the teachers and staff are attempting to cover up. Not only this but what of the goings on outside the city, outside the country. Foreboding times are coming but the students are distracted as they endeavour to fit into the college life and all the social anxieties that come with it. The college expects them to meet the requirements set upon them especially if they aspire to become heroes and legends of old.

This a highly fun and magical adventure involving a healthy mix of roleplay and combat which encourage character development and player growth. Set is a longstanding homebrew world of 6 years; this is but another adventure into the strange and wonderful. As a Dungeon Master with 6 years’ experience, I love running the game as much as I love players contributing. I will always aspire to give as much as I get. As mentioned, experience is not an issue and I am more than happy to help my players especially when it encourages the story
