At the Temparat campus of the Arcane Order, the first semester classes include Intro to Magic 101, History of Magic 101, Water Magic 101, Air Magic 101, and one elective chosen by the student.
Intro to Magic 101 is taught by Teo Braga. Professor Braga has been teaching the course for at least fifty years. In the first semester, he teaches the basic incantations and hand movements used for almost any spell. He is a stickler for accuracy and you will cast the same spell over and over until it meets his expectations. Though he has high standards, he is almost universally loved. Professor Braga also makes sure by the end of the first semester that all students have a basic understanding of the six major colleges of magic taught at the Temparat campus. Spells you have the chance to learn include: Diver’s Blessing, Know Thyself, Open Door, and Jolt.
History of Magic 101 is taught by Severina Fria. She covers in the first semester the origins of the Arcane Order, the mastery of Lycretian magic by the first 12 wizards, and then focuses on the development of the colleges of magic that are primarily taught at the school. Professor Fria does not teach magic. She wants her students to have an academic understanding of where their power comes from. Don’t cheat her class. She is a master of divination and knowledge magic.
Water Magic 101 is taught by a Jaipurian Half Elf by the name of Fikri Kloro. Once a famous ship wizard, he retired a decade ago and began teaching. He started teaching at the Jaipura branch of the Arcane Order, but a few years ago he was lured to Temparat. No one at the school is better at Water magic than Professor Kloro. Though he teaches all the water Magic classes, he only lectures the 101 and 102 once a week, the labs and spell casting are all supervised by Suzana Mata, who graduated last year as an Order of the Gryphon and is now learning advanced water magic so she can complete her Order of the Basilisk. Spells you have the chance to learn include: Squirt, Seek Water, Purify Water. Students must learn Seek Water to progress to Water Magic 102.
Air Magic 101 is taught by a young woman from Farallon, Nan’elle Kederesk, who just in the last couple of years, received her Order of the Pegasus. She is incredibly well versed in both Air and Weather magic. Though she teaches all of the Air Magic classes for the Order of the Gryphon, she shares Weather magic teaching with Professor Kloro. She loves fashion and billowy dresses and robes. It is not uncommon to see her floating around campus instead of walking. Spells you can learn in her class are Might Breath, Stinkguard, Purify Air, Seek Air. Student must learn Seek Air to progress to Air Magic 102.
Electives that a student can choose from in the First Semester include: The Magic of Movement 101, Beasts and How to Tame Them 101, The Other Elements 101, and the Art of Divination 101.
