Located in the misty Alterac mountains, the prestigious Ravenholdt Academy has long been considered to produce the most highly trained assassins and thieves than any other guild. Ravenholdt Alumni have a distinct honor of being in the company of other great rogues, some of which have performed highly-enviable deeds (hardly done dirt cheep).

At Ravenholdt, students pursue entry-level to highly-advanced and specialized degrees in diverse areas such as assassination with fist weapons to cost estimation of a contract hit.

The Ravenholdt Rogue Academy (RRA) is an institution of higher learning for rogues based out of the Ravenholdt Manor. We have partnered with the University of Lordaeron to provide a level of consistent quality in our training and to diversity the offerings of the university.

  • The academy is currently seeking a candidate for Dean, Ravenholdt Rogue Academy. This appointment requires guilded membership with the University of Lordaeron, extensive experience as a rogue, and the ability to organize.

Mission StatementEdit

It is the goal at this institute of higher learning to increase the nimble fingers and brains of its students, increase awareness to the general public of the need for rogues, and to increase the quality of life for those graduated and titled miscreants who have come before.

Career OpportunitiesEdit

Unlike many other careers, as a rogue, you have the opportunity to straddle the social-moral boundaries and provide a service to the cities in which we have established guilds.

It is important to see what sort of rogue you are before committing yourself to a particular path. Maybe you’re that sleazy cutthroat that hangs around behind the pubs after closing time to pick off stragglers…or perhaps you are a high-class cat burglar on hand to the highest bidder, or maybe the bidding is on a contract to assassinate someone. The range of options as a rogue is limited only by the length of rope around your neck.


DepartmentsEdit

Each school, college, or institute is customized to crank out as many profitable, workable copies it can of the most stable conformation. However, that being said, the intrepid student has the opportunity to chose courses à la carte and build their own degree here at the Ravenholdt Rogue Academy. With a good thesis and a wad of cash, you can buy yourself straight to a PhD.

AssassinationEdit

Students in assassination gain a strong fundamental grasp on the techniques of this ancient profession. In addition to the Academy’s Core Requirements, students in this major must also complete several hours of required assassination courses and 12 hours of electives from the approved list.
