subjects in sorcery

So our little scholars are setting out to study sorcery.  Picking specialties. . .

And the truth of the matter is -- although all of them are studious, two of them have strong interests, one realizes that a subject will be important to him, three of them have vague and mild interests, and one really is just studying because he needs to qualify as a magister.

Very realistic.  OTOH, I want very little time with them on stage going, Huh, what, I suppose I do this next.  . . .

And even the guy without interests won't flip a coin or something.  Hmmm. . .

Ariana will find the key to the library's order and they will pick things that look cool.  That's a random they might use.
