[ OOC -> https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/arcana-somnium-university-asu.30873/ ] A whooshing sound sounded through the air, as if giant wings where flapping. A dragon descended to land before the school, this years students on a sort of saddle on his back. The scaled being was a giant, easily able to carry at least 30. The drake was the guardian, and the mass transport for Arcana Somnium University. He snorted, smoke billowing out from his nostrils as he lowered himself close enough to the ground for the new students to jump down. Out of the doors of the university, some of the staff came to greet the guests, all smiles and well wishing. One particular staff member, the headmaster finally cleared his throat. "Welcome to Arcana Somnium University!" He spoke, his voice enchanted to be loud enough to nearly echo around the clearing the school resided in. "Before getting you all settled into your dorms, we must first have all of you pass the Familiar Summoning." A pause was registered before the world seemed to melt away as a transportation spell was used to transfer all of the new freshmen to the summoning chamber. A massive round room with high ceilings, almost cathedral like with its stained glass. In the middle of the floor there was a pair of circles, etched into the stone, a permanent fixture. The headmaster cleared his throat before he began again. "The circles you see before you are only the basic, any rune you wish to add, you are free to do so with any supplies you find in the store room." With that, a set of doors on the opposite side of the room flew open as if on cue. "I trust you all studied and are well aware of the ritual." He continued, his voice suggesting that the students had better have studied and know what they are doing. He cleared his throat. "And I'm sure you've all brought the tying objects with you? if not I suggest you take this spare time to scrounge some." He glanced all of the students over. "As you all should be aware, the tying item you've chosen for your familiar will appear on them when they appear in their circle. This helps the bond between magus and familiar to begin forming." He paused before he whistled. "As an example, take my own familiar and I" He continued, as something seemed to slither from the shadows then turn into a human shape as it came to rest next to the headmaster. The inkyness faded off of it to be replaced by a stunning demonic woman. The man turned and raised his eyebrow at the woman, who rolled her eyes before displaying the dangling stone hanging from her belly button. The headmaster, at the same time flashed his ring at the new students. "As you can see, both of these items are on us. And they can never come off until the contract is nullified, which, as you all know, can only be done by the death of one partner." He turned and inclined his head to the demon next to him. "You may leave if you wish." He told her, even as she began to saunter back to the shadows. He turned back to the group of freshmen with the clap of his hand. "Well the, who would like to go first?" he asked the group.
