I was apprenticed to a program long, long ago that fostered a cross-discipline approach to Wizardry. At various times I have spent a few centuries devoting myself to the study of each of the different magic schools. Currently I am studying the Astral magics, a school of thought that is barely recognized and little known.

You see, at Ravenwood, we teach the core essentials of both the Inner and the Outer triangles of Wizardry: the External magics, which deal with manipulating the forces of Nature (Fire, Ice and Storm) and the Internal magics, which deal with the elements that compose one's self (Mind, Body and Spirit ... or, as you know them, Myth, Death and Life.) I am currently researching a third triangle, one that we know little about, but seems to be quite puzzling and immensely powerful; the Astral magics. These deal with the manipulation of the universe itself, the Sun, the Moon and the Stars; those heavenly bodies which are bound by (and make up) the Spiral itself, the inner workings of the great machine which makes the Universe tick... much like an old (but perfectly maintained) timepiece.

Oh, my! That was a bit long winded, and I seem to have lost my train of thought. What was your question, again?

Nice! I hope your studies are fruitful. I can't wait to see Astral mages learning their craft in Ravenwood some day!

So, I have a question then

Does this mean that eventually we are going to get to learn spells from the third triangle, like Astral Magic?

Wow, you're pretty old professor- no offense intended, naturally. But the most powerful magic taught is, of course, Balance. The little-taught school in Ravenwood, it's power is beyond compare. Well, to my reckoning so far. I have only dabbled in these 'Astral magics' once, and for only a few minutes, before I near blew up my dorm. They seem very powerful, and extremely hard to control. I haven't touched that book for a month, and I have sworn not to until I can learn some more about it...

I just posted a comment about an essence based school of magic. I should read all the forums before i post. I described this "astral" form of magic. But I applaud Ambrose's approach to all the magics. You can't learn one type and exclude the others? What is Life without Death? True balance is in this sense as well as, I beleive, this context, is not just a title of a school but in fact, Ambrose is a balance mage. And a powerful one at that.

Headmaster Ambrose, This magics of the third spiral sounds facinating. I can almost see it in my mind. When you figure out the magic of the stars, I'd love to be notified. I'd be proud to be one on your first wizards of the heavens. :-)

Does that mean i should start saving training points to use for the astral magics? Or will we get them acoring to what our school is?

ambrose what about balance school?you seem to have left that out
They don't have a balance school in ravenwood. There is a teacher, but the school is hidden under ground in the Oasis, with the order of the fang.

Has anyone noticed that three out of the four symbols used to represent the "good character's" spots in a battle are a sun, a moon, and a star; the three types of astral magic? :?

It's quite the observation I'll give you that.

I'm sure quite a few people never noticed that. Good show.

Heheheh, kinda reminds me when I checked a book out in the library called The Astral Triangle. I tried out a spell, and I almost ripped the Shopping District from the Spiral. Heheheh. Sorry about that!

I set up my my dorm as a summoning chamber to fiddle with the Krokonomicon, which I neglected to return after beating Malistaire. I woke up in a gutter on Marleybone with no idea how I'd gotton there.

It all makes sense the star symbol on ambroses desk and his robes with stars and moons on them and the spiral room it all means one thing ambrose is astral and one more thing will any enemy's be astral school in the future?

Wow, I have once looked into the sky and found magic there, however headmaster, I have a question, could there be a magic to control the spiral itself? However only someone with extreme knowledge would be able to control that. All forms of magic require the knowledge on how to use them, that is why we have Ravenwood and why you need levels to use spells, the levels are the knowledge needed to use the spells. As demonstrated above by the incidents caused by using astral magic, you must know how to use, and how to respect that magic.

Headmaster Ambrose,

It's been a year since you first made this post about your dabblings in the field of Astral Magics. What can you tell us about what you've learned so far? When do you feel that you can find someone with enough experience in the field for us to start studying it? I'm just really curious as to when I will be able to start my own dabblings in this interesting subject.

I went to the Library, but I couldn't find any books about Astral Magics. It seems that they were all checked out...

I made what I think the symbol for Sun magics would look like. You can see it here, near the bottom of the page. http://www.wizard101central.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35349&highlight=astral&page=3

A FEW CENTURIES!!!!!! I THOUGHT YOU WERE IN YOUR 70'S!!!!!! Well, figures. In most games like this and/or stories like this, there is at least one character that is extremely long lived.
