World and Recruitment Info
All the foreign students at Adventure School are generally from places only a couple trading hops out of Gerult. A few are much more distant and found through other methods, some of the most distant places are the homelands of some of the school’s founders.
For now only a couple places are known to the players:
- Tsyra’s homeland
- Norbert’s homeland
When the school identifies a place they’d like to recruit children from, they work to establish a presence in the area. This is either through helping the locals when the culture permits or sometimes through secrecy when the area is not especially open to outsiders. Next they work to establish a permanent teleport circle for easy traveling. This is an adventure in itself as the party setting it up has to venture to new lands manually, crossing dangerous country, hostile territories, and uninhabitable terrain before they can begin work building the circle. Communication methods are also set up with locals willing to keep an eye out and contact the school from time to time. Recruiters will regularly make trips to review candidates.
When teleportation is used, if students aren’t already pretty well traveled, if they have little interest in maps, or they don’t especially miss their homeland, it’s entirely possible they don’t know where Adventure School is in relation to their homeland. Curious students can always ask to study maps to figure out where they are.
The school always allows children to return to their homes using teleportation during breaks or if they choose to leave the school.
