I plan on hopefully attending next year, as I turn 14 and want to fight as soon as I pass the Test of Arms. However, I have heard that it can be daunting solo at your first event (my father wouldn’t be much help as, unusually, I am bringing him along more than anything, and he has never done anything like it), so wanted some sort of foothold. I am aware of the Academy’s purpose, but was interested in:
The current demographic (mainly in terms of age) if anyone has experience working there
The freedom of the academy- am I allowed to drift in and out of lessons depending on interest, or, even better, choose what to learn no matter the time?
In general, its worth, especially as I am of an age and inclination that means I can, and already have, researched much of Empire and its history via the wiki.
I also plan on, before an event I attend, asking on the Brass Coast Facebook if any groups are looking for younger members
