  1. Past hour
  2. Better by Half, stage 6: Pardon the singular option, but an alternative would needless complicate and/or break the remainder of this adventure chain. And dear word, it's complicated enough as is.
  3. Today
  4. Hmmm, likely the Student in question would receive a stern talking to regarding poetry...but that would be it, provided it didn't happen again in public.
  5. Yesterday
  6. @Legate of Mineta: This is my idea for an adventure involving Zoe Melis and Gates magic. Zoe is reading an advanced Eluminian textbook that she borrowed from Professor Sido and reads in one of its passages about a beautifully written and very useful old treatise about medicine. She gets the PC's help to talk to Professor Sido about it. He tells Zoe and the PC that the text in question is thought to be lost. The rest of the adventure would be about the PC's helping Zoe as she uses her research skills to locate an old manuscript of the poem - only for them to realize that it praises Gates Magic and Mastery Magic!. The PC and Zoe then have to figure out what to do with the poem in order to avoid suspicion. I was thinking that a PC studying at the Schohanwicht or with the Purple Wizards could have more options.
  7. Sure Legate, I'm interested to see where she's going with it, and the interviews/events in the updates are hardly canon for the most part, but in context, AS a Naval Aircrewman with his flight jacket hanging in his closet, it is amusing to me... ...because this quote is about the most succinct summary of the spirit of naval aviators I have ever seen. I'm sure @Fifrein will concur with his new practical experience in that regard. Then again, I'm from a branch of the American armed services that is regularly noted for it's enthusiasm when it comes to getting themselves stuck in to the fight so "excitement" is generally not lacking. Nor was anger when I was still in uniform. There's always plenty of bravado, false and otherwise to cover up the natural fear that comes with those situations. Ark Royal did hint at one truth that I think most people reading that will miss. The guys who go cold? They are scary. But I've always seen it that those exceptional individuals are born, not made. Met a few guys who got like that. You could see flashes of it every now and then. A guy who had seen the elephant... and found the skill set he was quite literally born to. Not necessarily to fight, but to take situations that instill terror in others in stride, a native condition that makes for a nearly perfect warrior. Course this isn't exactly a particularly new or unique observation.
  8. Has anyone else bought 6 Ages?
  9. To clarify, Zoe would be the student found with the poem. I was confused because my adventure idea involves her and the PC accidentally discovering such a poem. The discoverer could be any professor or person in authority.
  10. I was thinking Zoe Melis, actually. I have an idea for an adventure with her.
  11. @Legate of Mineta: What would happen if an Academagia student were found with a poem written by a deceased author praising gates or mastery magic?
  12. T_H; Personally, I *think* AR is trying to do something else with her talk about emotions...;)
  13. Better by Half, stage 5: Not sure if Y2 can better "balance" stages that don't stall on failure, but I hope it can. Recall that this adventure, as with the previous two, is on a timer. So I'm assuming that it not taking extra time is a good thing.
  14. It was pointed out correctly in the discord that the subject of Ark Royal's scene is a but of odd one. In one of the previous updates Ark Royal, along with a few other carrier belles, displayed a solid handle on the behavior of pilots and other flavors of airmen, myself included, that would answer her question rather ably here. Not quite sure what to make of it personally. Interested to see where it goes. Not that I'm biased toward Ark Royal or anything. You can't prove a damn thing. Ahem. Still no update where it really counts though.
  15. Last week
  16. Better by Half, stage 4: The magic option being a bit of a trainwreck is honestly intended - you are only a second year, and there's supposed to be three more years of just basic study afterwards. So of course it should frequently go off the rails, even if it does technically "work".
  17. Probably the third option: if land masses- no matter how tiny- can get a Belle that simply, there'd be no stopping the race to ship-ify every dinky island in every ocean, sea and lake. ...And then there's the continents (spoiler: The Good Ship Europa would be a basket case)... From my understanding of Shinto, any thing suitably sublime enough may become a home for a kami. My suspicion is that if that thing can't be sunk, the kami residing in it isn't a ship's spirit.
  18. Stone frigates. Avenue to investigate the Shintoist conception of Belles as the more visible, active end of an expansive Kami-continuum, or just legal sleight-of-hand from the Admiralty? More particularly, HMS Diamond Rock. French island? British sloop? Ghost-hunting opportunity for U-29? Perhaps a Caribbean holiday scientific expedition is called for.
  19. Better by Half, stage 3: For the record, this was intended to be one of those smaller stages. Intended. The words called out to me, alright?
  20. @Legate of Mineta: I was wondering if there might be an option for a PC who hears Briardi talking about Euneycia and studies with Euneycia to realize that Briardi is associated with gates magic - and maybe try to get closer to her as a fellow learner from Euneycia (not romantically, unlike other players of this game may think!).
  21. one last question about names we know that belles are limited in how far they can move from thier hulls. i was wondering if belles named after places could freely travel said place .i.e. if belfast docked in the port of belfast would she able to anywhere with the city. second i have a question about submarine belles we know they can dive under water but how far under can they go. and can a sub belle operate outside of her hull while at depth would be a very useful skill to have. would make submarine rescue a lot easier or cutting through nets, then there all the possible civilian uses marine biology reserch Archaeology underwater investgations plus the fact belles could go to places human divers can't. and in call back to an old anwered question if you would'nt mind do pass on salmon that i think for a submarine belle civilian life would have a lot of opportunities so please don't discount it. third question what are belles aircraft are they smaller virsion of the human one with it's own pilot or they some sort of energy construct that belles are able to control remotelly forth we know belles have to be near there hull but if they cut a small piece off and carried it with them could they then go where they want as long as they kept that piece close also if you would mind passing on a few letter i would use the post but a friend of mine a letter for rome italy ended up in texus for some reason, dear U-29 i am terrible sorry you did'nt full transcript of the admiralty meeting. if you had seen the full transcript your see the reason that lewd thoughts were picked as a first attempt at telepathic communication. were reasonable we thought that trying to use pictures or sounds were to complicated for a first attempt at communication. that be why the test you did with belfast did'nt get the desired outcome (it did point to other ways that such a link could be proven will continue about that later). The admiralty dicided that simple feeling should be the start preferably ones tied to primal instinct. basic and simple was the thought to be the best start which leads to what one to we go for. to be honest most had very bad con, for instence fear could really mess up a captain leaving them a nervous wreck unfit for command. hunger was also discarded for similar reason. pain was considered minus accdents could work quite well. Then lewdness came up after some joke we could'nt find any real negatives, minor physical discomfort some embarrisment but no more than what pain would cause without any real risk to anyone. now on to some observations of your test belfast did'nt pick up anything but you did'nt try the reverse of having the captain pick up on what belfast was seeing. with belles being the center of all powers that we may see results with belles trying to initiate the first telepathic communication again try to keep it basic and simple maybe focus on sentaion of your screws turning while thinking of the captain. I would love to here your thought on this your's sincerely Lazarus D Walking Dear Nürnberg I apologize in advance for the shortness of this letter I've been meaning to write to you and others but with not much to say i'd thought it best to wait but. I can wait no longer, first I thank you for answering my civilian life question it was heartfelt and sweet that your first thought was your ok with it if your useful which i'm sure you would be. all i've seen of you so far shows to be a hard working if not somewhat mischievous and I can't wait to meet you face to face and try some of your Lebkuchen your's sincerely Lazarus D Walking Dear Leningrad I recently reread your part in the poetry night i believe you were reading poetry by Anna Akhmatova i do hope you continue to share. I was also wondering if you have any recommendation for other russian poetry. I also apologize in advance if this question is to personal but some of us at the admiralty have been wondering about you personal. it about the connection belles have to thier names in your named after a place named after a person we were wondering if you feel any connection to the person in question. also what are your thoughts on Boise becoming a US senator and have you given a political career any thought if you do know thier people out there who would be willing to help to the extension they are legally alound to. of course it's only a crime if convicted i hope to hear from you soon. your's sincerely Lazarus D Walking
  22. Better by Half, stage 2: On the one side I kind of miss my exceptionally wordy stages. On the other side I really don't miss my exceptionally wordy stages. They'll be back, eventually, but today is not that day.
  23. Always she is in the PC's College.
  24. Lol looks like I skipped to fast past the first step(s) of this adventure in the past and now have to learn in the forum that there is such nice side info there. ^^
