Wherling Lessons

The wherling lessons are broken down into information and hands-on training, homework, and a social activity in downtime. Lessons will be posted by staff so that any may participate if they so wish. Lectures happen weekly and cycle through subject; wherlings are expected to attend them all by the end of their 12th month. All lessons are considered IC mandatory; we understand if you do not make it to them OOC!
