Common Grounds

The Murial Grounds
Limbus destroyed the Azurian Archway, but the school rebuilt this area with Cherry blossom trees that bloom with brilliant small flames. Fields of grass with white marble paths will guide people deeper in to the campus. In the center of the garden is a black marble dedication to all whom died upon Limbus entering the world, a memorial to remind us all of the coming fight. The inscription upon it saying "The world was saved so that we might save each other." The underground tram was rebuilt so that it could drop students off here rather then under the tower.

The Dormitory Complex
Once there was two, now there is but one building. This building is actually a hollow circular shape because in the battle against Limbus, Wessix slammed these two buildings together to create a flux of magical energy. On the bright side, your dormitory is nearly indestructible and still a semi-overlapped pocket dimension (New Student Forum)

Tower of Vox

Subbasement Level 1: The Bushido Chambers
The Bushido Chambers and Gym area were relocated beneath the Tower of Vox thanks to the Ascendant Protocol. While the gym is just a regular hard wood floored workout area, the Bushido Chambers use the latest holographic technology mixed with illusion magic to create any situation or world you can dream of to train with. Due to the gyms being located here most of the Physical Education classes are taught here. Safety protocols do prevent you from locking people in the chambers or from turning the no kill rule off.

Shikanoshima Island (Surrounding Grounds)

Mount Ryujin
The head of Akitsjin Trail, the largest mountain still standing, heat radiating from its peak. This active volcano is responsible for the life of the island, and makes up the entire southern shore. It should be noted that almost the entire mountain is covered in a thick forest thanks to volcanic soil.

Akitsjin Trail
To the west of the school grounds curling along the western coast of the island, a range of mountains, slowly diminishing into mere hills as it travels north, this range cut by constant coastal winds makes this range is formidable barrier to the ocean beyond its hills.

Shikanoshima island itself is Earth’s anchor to other dimensions, the high concentration of Limbus energy and temporal flux serving as a strong catalyst for movement between other worlds and even alternate dimensions. The cause of this energy is still under investigation, but its effects are clear: we are not the only universe out there.
