He quickly looks around in panic and casts a quick spell. Appearing from the stonework floor below a basic staircase beings to spiral upwards. When you journey far enough up it beings to dissipate behind you.
"Please do be quiet about such things, the students don't know about the health of the Grand Master yet. It is so close to exams and we wish not to alarm them."

"So you read it then I assume?" He looks at you sternly for a moment, but his eyes relax and he continues. "I heard about it from the duke not long ago. Terrible business it is. I'd hate for magic to become so barbaric again."
You decide to push and flatter him for the knowledge that you can about this strange place. "Ah yes, well this is one academy of many. Not many left in the world as there were long ago, but they are not so violent as they used to be. There is self defence of course but magic research to better people's lives instead of taking them has been the focus for a long time now. It is sad though, countries like Ostland have taken funding from the magic arts to their, "enlightenment" projects. Think magic is archaic and hogwash. Think it's dangerous to give powers beyond a normal person that not everyone can have. Well even here magic power is amplified, it really cant do all this much."

She's ill and all that. Well goodbye."
