[Plot] Let's dive into some research!

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 11 months ago by Provie


The city of New Barkston is a busting city, one of the biggest on the continent and today is no different, especially around the University of New Barkston, where many have gathered to lend a helping paw in the research effort. Without the use of magic, things have been going slower at the University for both those doing experiments with magic and doing research, but seeing as research is safer to have laypeople volunteer to help with, thats where are the volunteers are headed, to the massive university library. Rover is there to greet everyone, he looks stressed out but is handling himself well, directing anyone who needs it.

"Welcome everyone! I think many of you know me, or at least saw me on Jake Barker's show last week, but I'm Rover, and if you need anything, just let me know! We're grateful for all the help, especially for going through all these old archives. There's a lot to cover, so I reccomend that you pick a topic that interests you and dive right in, that will make reading through everything more interesting! Now I will remind you to be careful, we mostly will have the volunteers looking at our achives from the last century, but if you do come across anything that looks older, please let a university employee know, as there are special procedures for handling a lot of our older documents... and of course, if you find anything of note about magic, or similar happenings in the past, please let us know!"


Plot step TWo: Into the archives!

Time to help out and try to get to the bottom of all this trouble with magic! The archives at the University of New Barkston has a lot of info, so all these helping paws will useful in seeing if there's anything of use in the history and general ephemera the university has collected over the years. It will also be fun to just see what kind of interesting information the archives has in store!
