We just allowed our Mages to get their casting style (or focus if thats the term) of an academy of their choice, with their next AP and just assumed they are from there. And of course they picked academies whose bonuses benefit their known spells, which automatically made them fit into the academy.


That's pretty much how I envision handling it for my own games, too. Then again, one doesn't really have a choice, does one?

Did the German version of the supplement(s) offer suggestions on how to work this stuff out with the players, or is it just something the GM has to get creative about?

Since this situation is unique for our circumstances to have played before the supplement was available it doesnt mention it. I guess common sense is the best rule for things like that.

LOL! Common sense is always the best course in these situations. :)
