MAGE CHALLENGE:
THE LORESEEKER SCHOOL FOR NERDS!



SYNOPSIS
Tired of being a hero? Sick of having to save the world? Say no more! At the Royal Loreseeker School for Nerds, our students are scrawny little bookworms. No need for prowess nor valor: to become a Loreseeker, all you need is a green shirt, a sharp mind, and a passion for books! As famous Loreseeker Harry Potter once said: "Better to be a smart coward, than a dead idiot!"

In this challenge, you get to play a normal kid at school, with a single dream: to graduate and become Loreseeker! You won't become a hero, so you'll need help from your classmates and teachers. Form a party of up to 5 characters, fill your schoolbag with the necessary scrolls, and go search Varannar's ruins for lost knowledge! Under the supervision of your professors, you'll uncover ancient encyclopedias, annals of forgotten wars, historical tomes, and a myriad of other books filled with forgotten secrets!


GENERAL RULES
- Class: Mage
- Guild: None
- Companion: Lore Guardian Grissenda
- Difficulty: Any
- Skills: No Mage Skills allowed until all General Skills have been fully mastered. Afterwards, you may learn Mage Skills Level 1 only.

STORY
"Dear young knowledge enthusiast,
By this letter, it is with great joy that I inform you that you've been accepted into New Garand's Royal Loreseeker School for Nerds! By next week, report to your new Tutor, Loreseeker Anton Gerdt, to begin Prep School. I'm looking forward to see the new book collection you'll contribute to our Great Library on your graduation day!"
- Principle Gebadi


PREP SCHOOL
Seek your Tutor, Loreseeker Anton Gerdt, and follow his instructions. At the end of his tutoring, he'll send you to Loremaster Riella for your Entrance Exam. You may attempt all other exams at any point during your studies, when you're ready.

THE 6 EXAMS
• To begin an exam, hire a mercenary for security, then seek one of the 6 professors and have them join your party. You need a mercenary to ask a professor to join your party and start your exam.
• To pass your exam, you need to go search and find 1 or more new books* while keeping your professor alive, bring the books back and store them safely in your school locker. *(A new book is a title you don't already own in your collection! Your school locker is your vault.)
• If your professor dies or leaves you before your exam is complete, you fail!

I can't believe it, those professors are crazy, they fight even they have no chance into an enemy. Congratulations Sir Apocalypse, You are now an official Loreseeker, now you need to locate the Mathrisian Codex to become a Loremaster and after that, the unique Data Pad will make you the Loreking.

Oh my Tol!!!!!!!!!
The Data Pad!!!!!!!!!

You're right, it's the ultimate book!!! The Loreseekers need it...

But I doubt those feeble bookworms could ever dream of surviving Ashen Cape, and they'd need a Muud'ari to pass through the Ark's force field... I couldn't even get near Lady Xidar, let alone defeat her loll This challenge is hard! The Loreseeker class is so weak, Grissenda was the real hero of my team lolll I guess the Loreseekers could hire a Muud to get the Data Pad for them...
