d100 Dungeon Prep School Encounters

I used last article mystery table for major party for a term, with one of these rolls for each player. Also see my d100 Magic School encounters and d100 secret doors could be handy. I used my articles on urns and barrels and boxes tables handy too for crap in school and stuffed in wardrobes, attic cells and other places about the school.

In my game school is co-ed with no differences made but rival schools could be interesting and some could be same sex or for one character class only. University in city handy also. There are secret and illegal schools also which is a good place for school rivals to go and be seen later using evil teachings. Partied from same school tend to be polite and gentlemanly resolving arguments with a duel or chess game or a small fee. Lots of murder hobos, monsters and other folk dislike anyone with a fancy school background. Students in the city should wear school robes and avoid conflict. City guard favours students in uniform over street scum thankfully. If the school has to collect you from the drunk prison or secret police cells students will be fined and given punishment.

City militia code has legit students special privileged status but police are allowed to castrate male students caught in public coitus, a tradition hundreds of years old. They in most cases lock up student and call the school.

Students are expected to defend school property and interests and should defend other students and staff in public. Abandoning a student to a rival school, gang or cult is the most shameful error. Students are taught to call for the militia and not be afraid of the secret police. There was a time though when a student asked police orcs for help and they killed the rival school students dead and everyone blamed the student for many years.

If students are expelled it is a big deal and shameful. Many end up bandits and murder hobos. Failure is considered respectable as is dying in school. Failures often get administrative jobs in the city or enter officer training for the military. Many even sit the secret police exam with favoured ones being awarded with bridging programs to enter secret police school immediate.

Students are invited to participate in the dungeon sport labyrinth under the city which attract adventurers from all over the world. The dungeon is maintained by an army of professional monsters and trappers and events are monitored by scrying relics and spell users. Some witness the games via illusions made by magicians but the most common see puppet show versions on the streets. Only the richest really see what happens and the survivors are usually offered jobs including with the Barron. Some become gladiators or murder hobos. A few school teams have been wiped out.

Graduates are monitored by the school and occasional by the secret police if tagged by the school as dangerous.

Former students 4-5th level may stay on as tutors if they get o well with staff. 6-7 may get positions as part time teachers with 8th level benig accepted as master teaching staff. Any literate ex student can possibly get admin, scribe or assistant duties. Occasional a teacher leaves and takes several students with them as followers.
