About

Kether rock is the top secret training facility for the newly revived Solar Exalted. Here the Solars are exposed to rigorous training schedules that focus on martial prowess and humility while subtly glossing over their roll as God-Kings. Training exercises include grueling lessons in survival, tests of their mental and physical fortitude, and other lessons in combat and morality.

Kether Rock also has a few other unique students including a handful of Lunars and Dragon-Blooded. While rumors persist that there may be other types of Exalts at this school, most of the inhabitants dismiss them as just rumors.

People

Kether Rock is run by the Battlemaster Michael, a Solar Exalt who was in the first class of trainees that attended Kether Rock. A scholar warrior by trade, Michael is a historian and a general in a class all his own. Charismatic and well-spoken, MIchael is also a master swordsmen and archer and often teaches classes to advanced students when he’s not concerning himself with the daily operations of the school.

Jak is a Night Caste almost as old as Michael. Unlike most Solars he opted not to leave and instead stayed behind to keep watch over Kether Rock from anyone that might wish the school harm. While Kether Rock has some of the most advanced obfuscation of all locations in Creation, he still keeps a vigilant watch over both the students and the facility itself.

Kether Rock – The Manse

Kether Rock – Fire Manse 5
Powers: Emotional Focus [Training] (1), Glorious Halo of Hesiesh (1), Comfort Zone (1), Provider (3), Outside Fate (4)
Hearthstone: Firebird Gem (5)

Kether Rock was specifically built to function as a training facility. Inside the manse is a hospitable zone that provides for all residents despite the extreme surroundings. Further the manse itself drives those present to train hard and assists them in doing so with minor illusions designed to test them. Lastly, the most important part of Kether Rock by far, is that it is removed from fate and thus remains hidden from the Bronze Faction astrologists.
