Source Strength of Thousands Player's Guide pg. 7
You have aspirations of attending the Magaambya academy of magic, but fate seemed to thwart you at every turn. You were unable to obtain a sponsorship and lost a collection of helpful textbooks to unexpected insect damage. You nevertheless made the long trip to Nantambu through terrible weather, uncharacteristically bad roads, and indifferent fellow travelers. Yet you have persevered. Now that you are here, alone but determined, you won't let anything stand in your way.

Choose two ability boosts. One must be to Constitution or Charisma, and one is a free ability boost.

You're trained in your choice of the Diplomacy or Intimidation skill. You gain a skill feat: Group Impression if you chose Diplomacy or Intimidating Glare if you chose Intimidation. You're also trained in Academia Lore.

Your recommended primary branch is the Tempest-Sun Mages.
