Athambia Academy Round 2 Proposal By Antny

I felt it was fair to throw a bit of love this sets way. The ideas here are pretty much all my own since I wasn’t sure of major mechanical themes from the set, so I have pitched an idea (knowledge counters) and the ideas for 4 different houses within the school. Obviously the houses could be increased, decreased or radically altered but my view was that each house would have a unique mechanic for gaining knowledge for their identity and be colour neutral – i.e. while I’ve designed a common Vraka pupil for white they would have red pupils, black pupils etc.

“Only after repeated assertions from the school governors did Gardnowrum house stop making first years face large animals, as it separated the youngsters into groups with potential to be great beast hunters and groups with groups with the potential to be a Terastodon’s supper.”
