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?
This is for Headmaster Ambrose. You said you were studying Astral Magic. Does that mean that there is the possibility for expansion? Like, maybe there will be more schools at Ravenwood? Astral magic sounds like something that I would like to try out .

Sounds more like Balance, as in the balance of all things between time and nature, man and machine.
guys i was playing after closed beta and i know every single thing that the teachers are frp, and i know the drakes are from wizard city thank you and flamea is from dragonspyre and the rest im trying to remember
I'm a perfectionist; I kind of would like to see Astral magic used, but still, I like the mystery about it. How about a very severe battle, so bad that it endangers the whole Spiral. In this battle, in the last part of it, Merle Ambrose joins in to help and uses this Astral magic.
Astral schools? i heard a rumor about that, but as far as the sun school goes balance has a sun spell ( power nova ) so what are they gonna get? xD
i know the post said just researching and that could mean anything but idk, i don't think that idea would work for the game, leave the best magic to the main man in charge. we already made one of the professors seem weak (cyrus) by beating him, then beating someone he can't beat to make him look even weaker.
is that why the idea of celestia was delayed? everyone was expecting it. was it taken out because of pooling ideas for astral schools and how they would work in the game with celestia?
it seems we all have our opinions on this matter! we all need to just wait and see what the headmaster decides, as it IS his decision. if he DOES decide to add them, they may be in another world, so you cannot choose them as your main school, but as maybe a fourth school, you get enough training points to allow you to learn one of the new schools. students, do not bother the headmaster, he is quite old (he found bartleby and was the STARTER of wizard city, a few decades a go) and is STILL doing his best for his school and city. if you all would just "go with the flow" everything will turn out fine, perhaps disappointing, but fine. now if you will excuse me, i must return to my office, it is almost my bed time!!!
Astral magic seems to be the 8th school. look at these posts by gamma from ambrose.
These could mean anything. Grizzleheim for example, that could be when we get some astral magic.
here are my thoughts. Astral magic is far off. anyone know when it might be realesed
External magics-(Fire, Ice and Storm) Internal magics-(Myth, Death and Life.) Astral magics-(sun, moon and stars) Balance is balance so it stands alone
it said Ambrose had studied in all eight schools of magic, so he might be a master of all the current schools,and that he is currently studying the third triangle of Astral magic which might possibly include the three new schools of magic(maybe with the release of grizz)
Well, i got an idea about the new triangle. (the new wizard schools)
Well ds academy was destroyed by the dragon titan. so what about before that. If they changed the story a little then maybe ds academy would have all the new schools. Instead of having a second school in this triangle, your second school would be extremely powerful which you can only learn in ds. I was at another astral school page and i made a list of what the new spells for the astral school would be like. So you could learn a new school (like fire ice storm) the time school, astral school, dimensions school. Then (like life myth death) the heavenly school, the demonish school, then the earthly school.
Paul Legend Weaver Lv 50 balance Flint Ice walker Lv 47 ice Paul Storm Wielder Lv 27 storm I have more files but they are really low lvls.
p.s. i am not sure really what to name the demonish school
Hmm interesting. I have always wondered where the teachers are from.
Here's my guess:
Proffesor Falmea~ Dragonspyre Proffesor Greyrose~ Colossus Boulivard Proffesor Wu~ Mooshu Proffesor Drake~ Wherever Malistare is from! Proffesor Malistare Drake~ Uh duh the Great Spyre
What da ya think?
First of all, 3/5 of them are correct, but Malistare is not from the great spyre, that is just where you last encounter him. Besides, Malistare and Cyrus are both from the main wizard city area, only Cyrus is from Cyclops lane or alley, i forget, haven't been in wizard city for a while, and Malistare is probably from the haunted cave, but were still in touch at school, even though they both hated each other. Hoped this helped.
