Adventure ideas for teachers at a “magic school” [closed]

I have been GMing a campaign of "Scion" for some years and my players have established a "School/University" for young scions (Legend 1-3), where they can "learn" to be heroes fighting titans. Up until now my plots were mostly "investigate this strange occurrence", "slay this titanspawn", "protect this new pupil", "find that rare substance" commonly initiated by other scions and adversaries.

Now the players would like to involve themselves more with the pupils, help them grow, etc, so the plots should be more focused on the institutional side of things. They still want to play their powerful characters (Legend 5-6). They don’t want to play any of the pupils, they just want to interact more with them and have the stories revolve more around the school. Do you have some plot ideas for that?

Can the School of Conjuration wizard’s Minor Conjuration feature be used to summon rare, expensive, and/or consumable spell components?

Can the School of Conjuration wizard’s Minor Conjuration feature (PHB, p. 116) be used to summon rare, expensive, and/or consumable spell components?

It seems to fit within the scope of the feature in a rules-as-written manner, and I am inclined to allow it – but not having fully experienced the dynamics of higher level play where it might come more strongly into play, I have some uncertainty.

Can my school see what I’m doing on my phone?

I have multiple gmail accounts logged in to my gmail app on my phone. One of them is my school email because I like getting the notifications directly to my phone without having to log in to my computer. I haven’t installed any software from them, but I have used their WiFi in the past. But when I’m at home, using my own WiFi, can they see what’s on my phone? I don’t log into google with my school email when I search something, but my account is still on the gmail app and the google drive app. Can they see my history, pictures and texts? Kinda scared haha, my friend told me they can, but I didnt believe him so I came here.

School requires CA certificate for internet access. Will use of VPN or proxy tunnelling prevent this? [closed]

My school uses a thing called Cyberhound. It filters websites and stuff. In order to connect to wifi, it requires students to use their given username and password. After you are connected, you must install a CA certificate provided by the school to be installed under Trusted Root Certification Authorities (on our personal devices). If not installed, every websites are blocked and prompts us to install the certificate. I did not sign nor read anything saying that they will do this.

I did some research and found out that there is a possibility that users with the certificate can intercept and decrypt any SSL/TLS connection on the local network. Is there any ways to access the internet without the certificate? I heard it is possible with VPN or proxy tunnelling through unblocked ports.

Can the School of Necromancy feature Command Undead be used on very powerful undead?

The Command Undead feature says

As an action, you can choose one undead that you can see within 60 feet of you.

Unlike the spell Animate Dead it does not specify that it has to be a small/medium humanoid. So am I able to attempt to Command powerful undead such as liches, drago-liches, death tyrants, death knights, etc.? I know that they would be hard to keep under control because of the saving throws and their intelligence, but can I try, or does Command Undead not work on them at all?

Which school of magic is Mordenkainen most closely associated with?

Which school of magic is Mordenkainen most closely associated with? In particular, I’m not interested in speculation or opinions, but rather if such a thing has ever been outright stated in any officially released D&D material, or which can at least be objectively inferred from things like the sorts of spells he was most closely associated with.


He has made an appearance in a couple of 5e adventures:


Speaking of the spells he has created, in 5e there are four spells that include his name in the title:

  • Mordenkainen’s faithful hound (4th level conjuration spell)
  • Mordenkainen’s private sanctum (4th level abjuration spell)
  • Mordenkainen’s sword (7th level evocation spell)
  • Mordenkainen’s magnificent mansion (7th level conjuration spell)

The above might imply that conjuration is his “main” school of magic because he made a whole two of those, but I know that there is also a 9th level abjuration spell called Mordenkainen’s disjunction from 3.5e, which puts abjuration and conjuration on an even keel (or possible even that abjuration is the “winner” because that’s the highest level spell he made), so I’m not sure if this method of inference gives a clear answer after all (since I’m not limiting this to simply what is in 5e).


So, has there ever been any clear mention in any official material regarding which school of magic Mordenkainen is most closely associated with, or can it be inferred from official material if not?
