Welcome to Rand al'Thor's School for Insane Young Men! You are here because you have a gift, a gift people fear. That's right, you have the power to Break the World again! To prevent this, we are conscripting you into a strictly regimented and disciplined army to serve the Dragon Reborn, himself as crazy as any of us. You will be given a nice, smart, black uniform, good for both study and combat (and maybe nice shiny pins... later), and you will be given lessons in burning, grinding, and zapping people with your special abilities without getting killed yourself. To help you learn exciting new things, you will be instructed in these arts by people who've done it professionally! Some of the teachers you may meet are standing right here, Mister Ablar, and Mister Taim. They once roamed the countryside gathering armies of their own, but now they reside here in these hallowed halls, ready to teach you the art of making stuff dead. Halls? Oh yes, our main hall is still under construction, and you, yes, YOU, will be building it from the ground up. Isn't that exciting? Oh, by the way, if you ever betray your newly found home, there isn't any 'five points from griffindor' or any of that silly stuff here, we'll just cut off your head and hang it on the Traitor's Tree! Remember, future Asha'man, enjoy your stay as a living weapon in training! Have fun!
