Help me clear this up please! Apt student reads in the recent errata as
Apt Student (p. 40): Replace the second sentence with "When being taught or trained by someone else, add five to the Source Quality".
How does this modifiy things if there are multiple students being taught at once? There is only one source quality shared by the pupils, modifying it should affect the advancement of the others. And I love that! Having that one kid in class can really improve the performance of the whole class regardless of the teachers ability to convey knowledge based on my IRL experiences, so it checks out, for me at least.
But taken to the logical extreme a Bonisagus with teaching 5 can conscript 20 of these kids, chain them to their desks, then convey his entire knowledge base about Magic Theory to their covenant with a +100 bonus to source quality... And thats just absurd.
Can one teach supernatural abilities like this?
Can one teach anything at all like this or am I missunderstanding something fundamental?
I think best of both worlds would be if this was how it worked, but could not be stacked so that only a single teaching assistant may provide a +5 bonus at any time.
Please share your thoughts!
