August 30th, 2025. Florence, Italy Today is a special day for wizarding children all over the Wizarding Kingdom of Italy, for the thirtieth of August always means the start of classes for all witches and wizards from seven through eighteen years of age, and even those older than that in many cases. This is a special day for you, for you are now old enough to start your magical schooling, and will today be fetched by your new local teacher and brought to their house to learn the basics of what it means to be a witch or a wizard. You will learn calligraphy, history, etiquette and languages along with more esoterics Runes, Arthmancy and Astronomy this year, and this introductory class will pave the way to whether you will become a fine witch or wizard or an untrained Squib. This stage of your development will be crucial to reach your dreams and earn your place, and so you would do well to be on your best behavior. This tale will encompass your life, from this day forth to your hopefully fulfilling death, with two main events per year where you will be able to explore both the world, art, magic and yourself as an hopeful Magical Maestro. This kingdom is the last stand of the Old Ways, and with it you shall grow with pride and the notion of Noblesse Oblige, for the hapless muggles are to be protected, not destroyed. Will you ascend to true nobility, young one ? OOC and Signup!
