  1. Yesterday
  2. As the title says. I want to have a character with riding at 11, which requires researching at Stables of Edon-Arain: Horse Stables, according to the wiki.

    How goes the Progress for Y2?

    Rhi; Yep.

    How goes the Progress for Y2?

    Would "it" be cutting a course from Y2?

    How goes the Progress for Y2?

    It's happened before. It may yet happen again. We'll see.

    Free; Unknown, but there is still the possibility of a tile for them.

    Researching Classmates?

    This sound very much like it could have happened to a other 1st year but its doubtful Philipe can pull it off against some of our player students. I suspect that is one of the reason BCS cut this one out in favor of the Oan introduction.

    Researching Classmates?

    Such as they are, sure:

    A few in game questions

    I remember that you once mentioned that there might be a couple of images of phemes put into the games at some point. Is Y2 going to have some?

    How goes the Progress for Y2?

    The importer is the last thing to be worked on, because it needs to know exactly how to convert data from Y1, which is only possible when everything in Y2 is already known. Rhialto, you should know that a lot of of Y2's details are being kept secret from us. They don't want to give extra details away. Suffice to say, Y2 is playable. I imagine most of the work remaining on it, is filling out tables, and maybe some touching up of the artwork and UI. I expect editing of the writing continues as well. The text has got to be the easiest part of the game, (though due to the large amount of text calling it easy is surely an understatement) The reason why they refuse to give out the class list is because in Y1 they cut out potions at the last second. They don't want to disappoint us by having to backtrack if that happens again for another class.

    So, @Metis, would you be kind enough to share the Philippe lores?

And are the text-heavy portions present in the game yet?

    A few in game questions

    S; 1) It's theorized that some of the disappearances in planar travel may have come from this very thing, but...who can say for certain...? 2) As you know from exploring the Mod Tools...sometimes, the writing has to change. It's a risk, but... 3) It's in a playable status, but various pieces do not work as they should, or only work partially.

    A few in game questions

    Some questions with high chance of a redacted answer but still have to ask them if just that the team can put some thoughts on them ^^ 1) Is one of the dangers of dimensional travel to get into a instable or even collapsing dimension? 2) how managed the team finish writing adventures, events and items when the skill and class lists are not final? (at last how adventure / events worked in year 1 its quite problematic to not know if a skill for a exit will make it or not that is why I refrain from writing anything that go past the summer holiday because I don't know what will be added) 3) Is Y2 already in some kind of playable status where "only" the text heavy parts like adventures, event , description and lores are missing?

    New Skills for Y2?

    There are several, although I shouldn't comment on them yet.

    @Legate of Mineta Is there a fishing club at Academagia?

    New Skills for Y2?

    I am wondering whether there will be non-magical, non-fighting related new skills in Y2, such as fishing. I ask because I am thinking about writing some Y2 content in which fishing plays a major role, and was thinking that the trapping subskill is the closest to fishing in Y1.

    Research and Bonuses

    @Metis: Good point. I had not considered that as a problem for this adventure (because it has only 2 parts, separated by the PC's need to research the topic Prudence Cossins), but an adventure that I wrote for Y2 does grant research levels. so: 3. Is it possible for adventures to grant research levels as rewards? @Legate of Mineta, can you answer?
  21. Metis

    Research and Bonuses

    Can't comment on Y2 of course, but I believe all of that could work in Y1. The only thing I'm not 100% on is adventure stages handing out Research levels, but that's only because I can't recall a situation off-hand where that happens. In theory, I see no reason why it shouldn't work.

    Research and Bonuses

    I am beginning to write an adventure named Dear Prudence. This adventure has very little to do with music or beetles, although it does have to do with Prudence Cossins. It is primarily a way for me to incorporate some fascinating lore about her into the game that was cut from Y1, so the core of the adventure is “researching [through the research action]” Prudence Cossins, which the narrative presents as talking to her. I assume that the research mechanic in Y2 will be the same as that in Y1 [viz, each research action is associated with a lore and there are possible benefits at assigned stages], but I made it more beneficial for the PC and Prudence by having each stage of research give benefits (some major, some minor) for them. The benefits would be linked to the lore, the premise being that the research was Prudence and the PC talking about Prudence and both gaining benefit from their talks. So I have two questions. 1. Would this type of structure be possible in Y2, or are the Y2 research mechanics so different from Y1’s that it would not work? 2. Similarly, would it be possible, even in Y1’s research mechanics, to have each level of research assign a bonus in addition to a piece of lore?

    La Belle Galerie Redux

    Once upon a time, forum member Dano created a chart of the Belles we knew of at the start and put them in a handy grid format for all to enjoy. That was before the current forum changes, which added this album area. This seems a logical place for such a resource.

    A few in game questions

    Rhi; 1) I'll just casually leave Avila College here. 2) No... 3) No, but there are several traditions that believe that whales were a benign form of water dragon.
  26. Rhialto

    A few in game questions

    @Legate of Mineta: 2 quick questions about Avila College. 1. Is there any tradition of linking women and astrology? Has this ever been tainted with misogyny [akin to the phrases "weak as women's magic/wicked as women's magic"] from A Wizard of Earthsea? 2. Have there been any efforts to eliminate Avila's motto after the revolt in Pievre? And one question about fauna. 3. The lore says that whales are mythical/legendary creatures in the Empire of Man. Are there any mystical traditions that see whales as opposites of dragons and divine protectors? Dragons are giant flying scaly creatures that expel fire and attack from the sky, after all, and whales can be reduced to the level of giant swimming smooth skinned creatures that expel water and attack from the water.

    There should be some mention in abilities that offer temporary boosts to study level that the boosts cannot bring study levels over 10.
