Is there no other way to learn the Ancient language than being taught by another Mage? or to learn runes?
Just curious how the first players of illarion learned magic (engine wise). As I'd be pretty interested for my character to do research, explore ancient ruins to uncover lost knowledge, or at least "rare" in that sense.
Also there's a bit of a lack of active Academy teachers that take up students i think, thou My character "Ryun" is unlikely to go about begging, or doing extravagant means of acquire a teacher, as he'd much rather study and learn himself (Although he wishes to join the academy for their library, and fellow minded researchers to discuss theories and plan ruin excavations).
Just ponder how the magic system is planned/is going to work arranged the fact of how magic can be learned.
or is it that "runes" and the ancient language is mostly verbally taught, thus guarded from master to apprentice? just curious a about the things surrounding the setting, both Lore, Role play situation, and Engine wise.
