Ryders Prt2Percival Academy was located several miles from the closest town, called Walla Walla, in the state of Washington. Technically, it was also part of Walla Walla, but most people who lived there didn't even know that the school existed.
It had been formed somewhere around the time the state of Washington was founded, only about a hundred years prior. The building itself definitely looked a hundred years old, and it had been built in the old European style of baroque. Ivy vines grew over its walls, and it was hard to tell where the building became the trees that grew against its walls. In fact, it was a hard building, even when looking directly at it, to spot.
The Academy didn't look exactly like a military fort, nor did it look exactly like a castle, but something in between.

He decided to go to war with the vampires, wrapped up in his holy mission to blot out the wretched creatures' darkness, and to right the wrongs that they had created. By and by, Roth took on apprentices, and taught them the secret
Ryders PrologueWhat do you suppose a world would be like, had dragons and magic truly existed in the Dark Ages? Suppose also that these dragons continued to survive into a modern, 21st century world. If, in that case, wouldn't it be logical to assume that this magic and dragons would be more affective in war than guns and tanks? There would still be weaponry, of course, and modern warfare. However, it would also make sense that there would be a special unit of humans who would utilize the important resources of the mythical kind.Ryders Prologue2 years ago in Settings More Like This
Dragons could be much more effective than a horse or a car, or even a plane, when it came to fast travel. And say that dragons were not the only type of creature that could be used in such a way. Yes, surely there are many other mythical creatures that could provide transportation. Some of their names would be more familiar to you, such as the griffin, the gargoyle, or the unicorn.
