Game of Tomes Lore

School Founding

WriterGreg sought shelter in a school building abandoned during the undead outbrake. He quickly took charge of the school and all who sheltered there. All who were willing to contribute to the new community were welcomed. The 1930's art deco design and solid construction of the building made it a perfect location to establish a school of worldcraft and wordmancy amongst the continuing undead threat. He was inspired by the cooperation of the new community that he sought to gave up his mercenary ways. Any funds from his old mercenary activities go to help the school and its inhabitant.

Others have joined the School to help keep the magic of Worldcraft and Wordmancy alive. They seek to help others with their new magics during the undead horde. They are willing to perform worldcraft and wordmancy magics in exchange for money and supplies for the school.

Real World Inspiration

Ogden High School: Ogden, Utah, USA

The photos on this page are of Ogden High School in Ogden, Utah. This is a real school still in use. Use of these images does not imply any relationship or endorsement of WriterGreg or the Game of Tomes.

The art deco architecture is of this school is beautiful. If there was a school that I'd every buy in real life (or take over during the zombie apocolypse) it would be this one.

Ogden High School is recognized as an architectural landmark in Ogden, and was designed by the architectural firm of Hodgson and McClenahan. [...] The building was completed in 1937 at a cost over $1 million, reportedly the first high school to exceed that cost.

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
