Hi Xarl!
Now that everyone has basically figured out the nature of magic, wanted to work on rewriting the seven schools to match the current "facts" of magic.

I was thinking that it should be a fairly good school, but not quite as good as Ximax. Why would people want to go to a school that wasn't the best? Do you have any ideas?

Well, let's see. The 7 Schools would naturally be the better known among Brownies, as it's the only place where the higher level Lifemagics are taught. Also, rejects from Ximax would probably find thier ways there, and vice versa. Perhaps Ximax has more exacting standards in its students?
Others: Ximax has something of a nasty reputation in Santharia. The Seven Schools: nope.
The Seven Schools lack something of the ironclad heirerachy that Ximax has. Definite plus for those students who want to climb the magopolitical ladder quickly.
More ideas?

"the only place where the higher level Lifemagics are taught. "
no, no, no....the higher levels of lifemagic are *lost*, remember? This is mainly for Brownies to learn other types of magic, and other races to learn both other magics and the first 4 levels of lifemagic. Brownies can learn lifemagic in their own tribe...they don't need to travel for that (with the possible exception of Milken).

"Also, rejects from Ximax would probably find thier ways there, and vice versa. Perhaps Ximax has more exacting standards in its students?

Good! So basically a school that lets more people in, and lets people learn as they are able to, more like a night school in our world I suppose?

Oh....by the way.....admission is free BUT every student is expected to make a significant, continuing contribution of skills or labour or knowledge or products to the Memnoor tribe, just like everyone else.

By "higher levels" I meant the Redbarks-only levels. But anyway, I think that will work. Ximax requires a tuition fee, (usually a higher-level mage will "vouch" for you and lower the cost) and the Seven Schools ask you to contribute to the community. Thus, you end up with a temperament of the two schools.
Ximax: The Ivory Towers. Magic is better understood, but put to less practical use.
Seven Schools: Magic works, this is how we've gotten it to work, and this is what you can do with it.
