Here’s some more information about the the scholarly paths available at New World Magischol. We want to reiterate that students of any house can study any of the five paths. Let’s look at the Healer.

Healers develop the most detailed understanding of how magic interacts with the human body.

Contrary to what one might expect, not all healer students feel a vocational duty to alleviate suffering. Learning the healing arts requires students to study all the interactions between the human body and the magical world, not merely magical poisons, diseases, and curses, but also the effects of potions and spells to enhance and augment the body. Healer students, perhaps more than any other major, also study mundane medicine seeing it as a valuable body of knowledge to draw from in order to enhance magical healing techniques. It’s a common trend for healer students, what with their interest in the body, to also take an interest in physically demanding sport and exercise, which is considered to be a bit “unwizardly” in the Magimundi.
