  1. Just a few questions on this. 1. These saves can't be ported at all? It was my understanding that any save could be ported, just data after the 27th of Kaliri would be disregarded? 2. Even though they're cut in Y1, the holidays set in the summer months are still legitimate as far as lore is concerned, right? 3. Why was the Summer Vacation moved from the end of the year to the beginning of the next year? I guess it doesn't matter too much seeing as how if it hadn't been moved, we wouldn't have gotten a summer break in Y5... But I am slightly curious.
  2. Hmm. Here's an interesting question for the Team: It's been stated before that Belles retain memories, if scattered, from past incarnations. What happens if there exists two ships with the same name concurrently? Say, if a ship was launched with the name USS Constitution during the war, would the still existing Constitution prevent a Belle on the newer ship from manifesting? What happens if the name of the older ship changes too? Like when Constitution's name was briefly changed to Old Constitution in anticipation for a new ship? Or if a predecessor is sold into new hands and renamed while a successor is built with the old name? What happens then?
  3. You may be a Vernin Fanboy as much as I am Aranaz, and I understand that, but be careful, buddy. Those are fighting words. Also, it does seem that With di Cossa and Orsi, we have two confirmed Vernin Alumni who know a lot about multiple pillars. This fascinates me.
  4. I suspect that professors would only passively prevent students from researching their past. To do so actively is to put a giant bullseye on your butt saying, "Hey guys, I've got some information that will hurt me if it gets out, please kick me!"
  5. This has got to be fairly new then. I don't do research in the game and I haven't read that in the mod tools. Fascinating. I guess I need to get off my butt and finally play a DLC 17 game, even though I've been waiting for the new modbase to come out before fooling with that...
  6. Rhialto, I would say Negation would not only be easier for detecting, it would also be useful to unmask the imposter too. Legate! 1. Exactly when does the Venalicium close? What about the Library of the Mantle of Stars, and the Library of Manetele? And I suppose that the Library of Longshade is officially closed always. While I suppose we know Why it closed, can you tell us How it happened and if not how, then When? 2. Have old Gates or Mastery enchantments ever been found by accident in the student dormitories? Mischievous fairly innocent stuff back from before the bans and not the malicious stuff bringing up images of black wizards? 3.Since Orsi graduated from the Academagia, Can you pretty please tell us what College he attended? 4. Can you tell us if Y2 is playable from beginning to end, yet? You don't need to tell us anything more, or how bad the bugs might be. I just want to gauge progress... 5. I don't think it was ever asked, but... Exactly what does the calendar year count from? The Exile? 6. Can you explain to me how Revisions which might otherwise kill people by turning them into inanimate objects, would allow them to survive? And can you explain why the heart is significant when being slowly petrified under such a revision? 7. Would bringing a fresh-baked apple pie into Calligraphy class be considered disruptive by Von Rupprecht? Or would he just let it slide after he confiscated it? What would happen to repeat offenders? 8. What is the significance of magic that smells of Cinnamon? or any magic that leaves behind any particular smell even if that wasn't part of the spell at all? 9. While Massioti may not care if you go to Contu's school so long as he doesn't find you playing Rimbal for them, traditionally, what did the former Regents and Godina staff think of this? What do the Contu teachers think of an Academagia student showing up at their doors to learn? Would they care at all?
  7. I finally learned to recognize 2 new constellations tonight. (Taurus and the Pleiades) Given that the only one I could recognize on sight before is Orion, I've made a 200% increase in stellar knowledge. Given that magical lights are a thing, how bad is light pollution in Mineta, and how easy can magic correct for this? In fact, how difficult would a spell that makes the night sky keen and perfect to view? (at least for the caster) It would have to have a duration of at least an hour or two.
  8. That twitter link needs to be fixed too, lol.
  9. For 2, can you share this lore? For 3. I was very close to quoting Orwell on 2+2=5.
  10. Say. Legate, How is the progress on Y2 doing now? Can you tell us of any milestones that were crossed recently? Also, you said you'd ask about Sabinu Nos and her human experimentation for an answer...
  11. Let's not forget about Rimbal!
  12. Given that our legate has said that the Legates of the Academagia are chosen by the Regents, I wouldn't say it is especially rare. We already know that Orsi is a confirmed graduate of the Academagia, and that, combined with circumstances that we don't know, were probably enough to get him the job. I would bet though, that if he hadn't been a graduate, he would have had to claw his way up... At least if he wanted the job and didn't fall into it like I'm currently suspecting.
  13. Heh. Can you at least state if the team does indeed have an internal release plan, without stating said plan? Does the team have a "soft" extendable deadline or are they just following the same philosophy we've been told for years "It'll be ready when it's ready"?
  14. Regent Orsi!? He's the Legate, darn it! :
  15. I agree. It wasn't directly stated that he did it, but you can kind of infer from the story that he attempted to do it. Whether he succeeded or not, it doesn't seem like many people are so confident that it can't be done as to want to give him a second chance at it.
