HOW THE TOWN ACADEMIES WORKS.

About the Town Academy:

The Town Academy's are places where knowlegde is shared. Grail Seekers can follow lessons here given by teachers to improve certain skills. There are four available lessons at this moment: Light Armorer, Medium Armorer, Heavy Armorer and Identify Creature.

Each lesson given has a certain difficulty (Basic, advanced, expert, master and grand master). The skills given in the academy are difficult skills that must be studied before you can practice them (unlike harvesting or ploughing for example). Depending on the difficulty of the lesson you will gain a certain amount experience on that skill.

Whenever a Grail Seeker possesses enough knowlegde, he or she also can become a teacher and give his/her own lessons. To teach lessons, you will need to have the required knowlegde and stamina. The stamina needed depends on your Teaching Skill. The better you can teach the less stamina you will need for it. Once you have chosen a lesson and your wage, your application will be handed over to the academy rector. He/she may either accept your refuse your application. If the rector refuses your application, you will get your stamina back. If the rector accept your application, your lesson is available to all students for that day.

The Rector is the man or woman who is responsible for the academy. The rector is a member of the town council and chosen by the Town owner. Rectors can accept or refuse the applications. It is also the rectors job to organize the academy so that each teacher has a certain amount of students.
Sometimes there are also certain NPC's who will sent their application to teach certain lessons.

Teachers.

Types of Teachers.

NCP Teachers: Randomly appear throught out the week. (Jacob the Skinner, Griswald the Blacksmith).
Player Teachers: May apply to teach once they have reached 25% in a subject. (Check your town University for teachers). Once a teacher you can earn up to 1 silver per student.

Break down of teacher costs:
- It costs the town nothing to hire a teacher. Teacher nominates a fee for each student. The town does not recieve the NCP Teachers fee.
- It seems that the NCP costs for the same lesson is random.

Lessons:

There are 4 Lessons only that can be taught:
1. Light Armorer
2. Medium Armorer
3. Heavy Armorer
4. Identify Creature


There are 4 Lessons times

- NCP Teachers remain available for two days or for 2 lessons per student.
- They are accepted by the Provost the day before and you should look in the Town Office IG or University thread on the forums (your town) for the next days lessons.

Benefits of lessons

- The skills that can be learned do not have a massive effect yet, however it will be impossible to increase the academic skills in an other way then using the academy.
- See next section for skills benefit.
- Once a teacher you can earn up to 1 silver per student.

Lessons Broken down:

1. Light Armorer:
Basic: Light Armorers makes armor out of leather that is flexible for the means of stealth along with the quickness the light armor generates to make quicker attacks. Keeping a record of costs of lesson per-time. 72 Bronze x1 lessons.
Advanced:
Expert:
Master:
Grand master: Light Armorers makes armor out of leather that is flexible for the means of stealth along with the quickness the light armor generates to make quicker attacks. Keeping a record of costs of lesson per-time. 70 Bronze x2 lessons.

2. Medium Armorer
Basic:
Advanced:
Expert:
Master:
Grand master:

3. Heavy Armorer
Basic: Heavy Armorers make armor out of a heavy metal that offers the best defense but the least flexibility. It makes the wearer very defensive, but does not allow for quick movement. The wearer would wear plate armor or a suit of armor. Keeping a record of costs of lesson per-time. 74 Bronze x 1 lessons. 85 Bronze x 1 lessons.
Advanced:
Expert:
Master:
Grand master:

4. Identify Creature
Basic: A fight is much easier if you know what you are fighting. Knowing your enemy may prevent you from attacking and if you decide to attack it may be helpful to know your foes weaknesses. Identify creatures is the skill a careful adventure if they want to become old. Keeping a record of costs of lesson per-time. 92 Bronze x2 lessons. 90 Bronze x 1 lessons.
Advanced:A fight is much easier if you know what you are fighting. Knowing your enemy may prevent you from attacking and if you decide to attack it may be helpful to know your foes weaknesses. Identify creatures is the skill a careful adventure if they want to become old. Keeping a record of costs of lesson per-time. 85 Bronze x1 lessons.
Expert:
Master: A fight is much easier if you know what you are fighting. Knowing your enemy may prevent you from attacking and if you decide to attack it may be helpful to know your foes weaknesses. Identify creatures is the skill a careful adventure if they want to become old. Keeping a record of costs of lesson per-time. 90 Bronze x 1 lessons.
Grand master:

Provosts Specific Duties:

- Each day the Provost (Rector) of the University checks the manage link to see if NCP or Player teachers have applied to teach and at what price.

- The Provost accepts the lesson for the classes to begin the following reset.

- The Provost should advertise the lessons in the Town Forum University thread and send a notice to the Town Leader for advertising in the town office igame.

Students

- As well as paying the teaching fee, it also costs stamina to attend a lesson.

- The stamina you need is usally the same as the stamina it says you need for teaching. You can find this in your ingame University screen. Typically a new player/student, will use 100 stamina, to get 1 point upgrade in their skill.

- NCP Teachers appear to teach for 2 days or the student can take 2 lessons over the 2 days.

Just these and not by anyone, I have only 1 in all these skills and cannot teach.

To discover what level you are and what you can teach just got to Academy and click on Teach it should show you what is available to you. Then Id love for you to post here what you have.

Those are the only options at present that are available to teach, nothing else.

90 Bronze

Sadly he is going to cost us money, so Im going to have to discuss with Anto a trial run, to see what happens BEFORE I can accept this teacher. I cant spend the towns funds until its viable.

But Anto, I would like to test it.

So it would be best to figure out who is willing to follow what lessons so we know what skills will get enough students.

Todays Teacher: Griswold the Blacksmith
Lesson: Basic Light Armorer
Benefits: Light Armorers makes armor out of leather that is flexible for the means of stealth along with the quickness the light armor generates to make quicker attacks.
Cost to town: 72 Bronze

NO LESSON TODAY.

Not until I can confirm with Anto that I can test this system out. I.e knowing exactly where the money comes from and how the town recoups the payments. etc. So I will not hire teachers until then. (I think I might write to him) for now, it gives us an idea on the different lessons and benefits.

I'll take any Heavy Armourer classes, I've got 2.5 in that skill from one class before. But I know the price was at least a silver, so surely with one person you'll make a profit.

Grumble..this means getting up around my 5am, fiine..luckily I've just committed to doing exactly that for this week atleast Laughing for outside interests.

I might write everyone that lives here and tell them that we plan to do this, and that I'll send them a mail when we get a teacher as well. That way anyone that has a spare silver will perhaps take a lesson just so the town doesnt lose out. I dont want our new economy to suffer at all, but if I can explore my job to the tenth degree..well I loves exploring ^^

And heeeey...update your skills...ah stuff and nonsense..I'll write to people about that too.

No problem Smile. Anyways griswald is teaching again but I'm not certain if I can take his higher tier, grand master class. If you'll be so kind as to accept it though, I'll attempt to take it, if I can't I'll cover the town's loss Smile

Okay, I took the lesson today, it cost me 100 stamina and I got this result.

The Academy
You studied well, but the class you followed was for more experienced persons then you. You did not understood everything, however you paid your teacher Griswold the Blacksmith 94 Bronze. You gained 1 experience on your Heavy Armorer Skill.

Academic informationTeaching Skill: 1.000
Light Armorer Skill: 1.000
Medium Armorer Skill: 1.000
Heavy Armorer Skill Skill: 2.000
Identify Creature Skill: 1.000

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Seems like it costs the town nothing if I accept the lesson, as its just the price that it will cost the student, this means I should be able to accept all ncp lessons and students can take them or not without cost to the town. I have asked anto to look at the town income and make sure this is right. Plus if there is tracking on names of students and a category for income to the Uni. Im going to ask Aro to see if the rector can see a screen of these details too.

The class was taken (atleast) 4 times (by 3 people). It would be nice if we could turn a profit off of it. We don't want to lose money either and if we started accepting every class then Im sure those numbers wouldnt stay that high.

If its ncp's and it costs us nothing, numbers arent an issue, even if no one takes the class.

Heir, can you tell me what it says on your screen then? Does it give names of students? I dont understand the 4 times by 3 people, does this mean that one person took it twice?

Also Anto cannot find if the money came in, if you have the information for students on your screen can you notice if there is money coming in then? - You said we dont want to lose money...doesnt seem that the town is paying for the teachers. Also seems the NCP's are greedy and taking the students wages.

After your answers, Im going to Lord Aro with some suggestions.

Yup, took it twice... and I think by losing money he means a whole in the economy where money falls into and doesn't come back out Razz
