  1. Any news on the college cafeterias?
  2. Yeah, old maps are nothing like paintings or modern maps. Here a blurb about one from the era of the crusades. Very interesting.
  3. I love checking stuff out at Deviant Art. You never know what you're gonna find! Made by the same guy who did the 1st map for the team, even! Perhaps a hint of Y2's quality? GORGEOUS!!!
  4. Mmm. Function keys. I only ever cared for number 4 in conjunction with Alt.
  5. Well, it's not like the team was pressed of time... Though I'd love to know how you have the modtool names when we don't have the base yet...
  6. That should be taken as significant.
  7. 1. Are records of the Praetexta court typically sealed? How easy is it to get access to records for famous cases which were disputed there? 2. Can you give an example of one of the old Ickanicix properties outside the Academagia that are still known about and very well barred from entry? 3. Since there are a lot of abandoned classroom, I'd like to ask if there are any that would be considered dangerous? If you were scouting them out for say, a club room, what kind of potential risks would you need to look out for? 4. Can you explain why Avila has traditionally been a Girl's College? Is there something about women and Astrology? Or was it founded that way for other reasons? 5. Does Von Rupprecht approve/tolerate of any types of shorthand, even if he would never teach any? please tell me he doesn't inspect our notes. 6. Has Orso ever publicly dueled a professor as the Legate? 7. Can you tell us what kind of magic that we should learn for exterminating the undead? At least the most common types of undead. I can understand that the exotic ones might just call for a lot of conventional magic firepower. 8. Do Ghosts count as undead in this setting? Or are spirits classified as their own thing due to Gates' influence? 9. What is the most disgusting food ever served at the Cafeteria at the Academagia? And has there ever been a student (or professor!) brave enough to eat it? (without the help of magic) 10. Does Malacresta get accidental Garlic poisoning often, or is he pretty good at knowing when the cafeteria is trying to kill him? 11. Since it is possible to eat either at the main hall, or with one's college, it has to be asked, if one was a sufficiently fast eater and runner, could you eat at both places? 12. Since we have a pretty good idea about the main campus cafeteria, could you tell us a bit about the college specific ones, and any peculiarities they might have? 13. If Aranaz hosted a pie-eating contest, A, would anyone have a chance at beating Von Rupprecht? And if no, B, how many pies would be required to bribe him to not participate?
  8. 4. Legate, when was Schohanwicht Founded? Was it before the bans or was it after the bans?
  9. People still are allowed to skip as much class as they want. It's just that now they get punished for breaking the rules.
  10. Hmm.. I don't know... I'm not saying you're wrong, but I still think there's enough space for wiggle room. The more realistic depiction should have garbage strewn out all over over the city's side of lake Ardica, yet there isn't any. Wiggle room. This is less of a map as the old one was, and more of a stylized painting, imo.
  11. I always saw that city map as being highly compressed. Plus the focus is on the Academagia. It's possible that the city is just outside the boundaries that we can see in the new map, because nobody wants to live *that* close to the magic school, haha.
  12. Mineta, I think was already mentioned to have a map planned for Y2. Whether it's done or not I don't think we'll know until the Big Day. A world map is also possible, considering how we're all going to be going home for the summer. It would definitely be worth doing replays of Y1 again with Y2 in hand, just to see all the stuff in Y2. Oh, if Y2 does come out this year....
  13. If this really is for Y2, and I suspect it is based on the fact the legate didn't acknowledge it at all, then I feel just a tiny bit sorry I've been pestering him so badly. That said, I probably wouldn't have pestered him so badly had something like this been revealed. And I just want to point out that this was publicly viewable for at least half a year. Anything left in my confidence stays there until there's no need, (I think I proved that with DLC17's beta) but if I find something public on my own, all bets are off.
  14. Wow! No comment at all on the new map? I'm shocked!
  15. I'm sure after lamenting that this Masterpiece found it's way to the forums, the Legate will confirm that.
  16. I'm fairly sure these were built at least a generation ago, probably more. I think the explosion on Vernin's campus tower happened centuries ago, and is slowly expanding.
  17. This map isn't labeled, but the previous map clearly shows that it's Part of Vernin's Campus. Vernin built lots of towers all over the Academagia, and it's my understanding that the Tower of the Cold Forge is not actually located there. That's a *separate* incident involving a frozen explosion. But other than that, the building is still accessible, even the top of the tower.
  18. Legate, where is Godina Park on the map of the Academagia? It seems like there are just too many artifacts and miscellaneous magical trinkets there that I personally have an interest in, hehe. Oh, and to be clear, Can you explain exactly what the crystal bridge crosses, and does one have to be standing on it to get into trouble? Or just near it? I smell something very intriguing. hehehe.
  19. 1. Are there schools in Mineta which cater specifically to those Academagia students who want to meet the prerequisites for their next year's classes during the summer months? 2. For those of us living in Mineta, what does it take to get limited access to the Academy campus during the summer break? Can you get a part-time job helping the school brace for the end of summer? At least at the Venalicium? 3. Exactly what does the school do in the summer besides research? I imagine that things tend to be somewhat more casual without all the mischief makers and messes to clean up? Or do the professors do a little bit of that themselves when nobody's looking? 4. For those of us Gates users that don't have any family connections to Schohanwicht, would it be possible to just chill out in Mineta for however long the travel time normally would be and then *pop* back home conveniently when expected? That would be really cool. (not in front of the parents, of course, silly legate) 5. Would we have the duration for our magic to move all of our stuff home in Mineta? 6. Since Duration is a key limitation to our magic skills, I want to ask if there are specific skills for enhancing that for each pillar, or if it is more of a general OMNI skill.
  20. Is it ready yet?
  21. Actually, it makes sense that "Simulation Testers Needed" Doesn't allow Godina students to run through it, because it was made by Godina students, as the adventure mentions. I'm sure they wanted to see how non-war mages would be able to handle it, because I'm sure most of the Godina students would be able to breeze through it.
  22. The aspects that are shared were mostly PR stuff like trailer creation, And art, I suppose. I have a feeling that most of the art is either finished or else at least not bottlenecking the rest of the work that needs to be done, but then who knows? I sure don't... I know we're not getting Y2 this year. I know that.... It's just I want to be an optimist, *sigh* That's why I keep getting disappointed.
  23. Is there even the slightest slim hope that we can get Y2 this year? I just don't understand how come it's taken so long with so little revealed! Can you at least elaborate on the difficulty you've had over these years? I know as well as the rest of us folks who've been waiting that the original plan was Y2's release somewhere around a year after Y1's release, and that's about the time that work on Y1 slowed down considerably. Even then, though, it was believed by you that Y2 was somewhere 'just around the corner' as evidenced by my now infamous old sigi. 4 projects have been anounced since Y1's release, with 3 of them successful, yet the info we've gotten is sooo little. I'm sure you want to keep things a secret as much as possible, and rightly so for avoiding spoilers, but surely there must be other things you can talk about besides the game itself, right? ...Right?
  24. Well, there is that "Negate-all-magic" branch of Negation that you probably wouldn't want others to know you're learning. Plus there might be loud noises and smelly things you want to work on too. Not necessarily illegal per se.
  25. Will most merchants remain unchanged in Y2? That wasn't really a focus in Y1 for obvious reasons but there are a few 'ehem' totally legit and legal books I'd like to get my hands on. It's just that the fact that some of them glow in the dark makes them suspicious looking and I'd rather save the time and effort by avoiding them being seen for that reason. Legate, you've said that starting up the library will cost a certain amount of pims based largely on how secure you care for it to be. Will that be for the whole year? And at what times will we be able to set it up? Right after summer break starts?
