Arcana Somnium University___________________________________________________________________________________________________ Dear ___(students name)___, Congratulations on being accepted into Arcana Somnium University! Arcana Somnium University, fondly known as ASU, has been around for 500 years. Although small, our university is known for producing the best of the best in many fields. ASU receives thousands of applications, but because of the size of our school we can only accept a small fraction of students at a time. ASU only accepts the best of magi. Whether your strengths lay in magic, combat, political, or any other fields. You may rest assured, because you got this letter, you are, indeed, deserving of this university. ASU has a plethora of academic phenomenon, one of the most famous being the familiar summoning. Every new student goes through this ritual as they begin their time at ASU. We make this ritual mandatory for every student attending. For our students, this si the first test in our University. If a student fails to summon an acceptable familiar, they will be sent home. The ritual is advanced, and therefore, when completed successfully, will summon a familiar of human like intelligence. After the contract is formed, the magi student and his/her familiar will be a team for the remainder of their lives. The familiar will support the magi in any way it possibly can. More benefits of having a familiar will be covered in a specific mandatory course. Once again, we’d like to offer our congratulations on making it into ASU. Enclosed with this letter, you should find a ticket of transportation to the campus. Of course, the ticket will only get you to the forest, however there will be a staff member waiting for you at the forest entrance to guide you onto the main campus. All of us staff can’t wait to meet you! Sincerely, Alexandria Thopkins Alexandria Thopkins Familiar to the vice Principal Alright, everybody grab a partner!we need Magi/familiar teamsif unpartnered, simply type Searching.

Ex: A dragon familiar can breathe fire, an animal (Neko, Kitsune, werecreature, ect.) can turn into beast forms. A water spirit would have some control over water. Ya'll get it, right? Can “learn” some basic magics from their Magi They match of compliment their magi in some way. They're chosen as the best support. Usally they're the more physical of the two. USUALLY not a necessity. Some Magi might view them as servants, it's up tot he familiar how they feel about that. All begin in the same alternate dimension "waaiiiiitttt a minute....wasn't I JUST in my own bedroom? What the hell, man?!"

The setting is an alternate world where magic is abundant, but magical creatures themselves are rare. Era wise is close to current. Technology is around. Have fun with this guys, if you have any suggestions, say something. We'll be more than happy to hear ya'll out. Some events will be placed on a list in case the roleplay slows down. In which case, one will be picked at random and introduced into the story to liven it up. If anyone has any suggestions for such an event, again, say something.
