  1. @LaughingHero: I play with no mods, yet my saves are all around 50 mBs in size also.
  2. I wonder, now that the final patch for Y1 has been released, and 2018 is well advanced, whether Black Chicken Studios would be kind enough to tell us how the progress goes. If they will not do this, might they at least tell us something about Y2's mechanics for adventures? Either would be a great encouragement to me as I write Y2 adventures. I do not want to think that I write for a game that will never be released.
  3. @Legate of Mineta: May I have a quotation from Y2? Or has the offer been rescinded?
  4. @Legate of Mineta: There is no shame in gaining money through a kickstarter. Has the Team considered a Y2 Kickstarter? Even if so, Hanako Games's decision in this way may prompt reconsideration.
  5. Well, apparently, Y2 will have multiple maps within it.
  6. @Legate of Mineta: 1. Where is Malkstrang? In Vilocia? 2. Are many mercenaries from Cimone? I ask because there is a dueling style named after it (though not one practiced by Zoe Melis, ironically). 3. Is there any mystical or pedagogical practice based around visualizing phemes (possibly in association with visualizing effects that phemes are associated with)?
  7. What do you mean by form? Form ready to be shown/discussed? In any case, I hope that it is continually improving/getting closer to completion.
  8. @Legate of Mineta: So, any willingness to talk about or show interface improvements? Or maybe discuss recent progress on Y2?
  9. @Legate of Mineta: 1. Where is Malkstrang? In Vilocia? 2. Are many mercenaries from Cimone? I ask because there is a dueling style named after it (though not one practiced by Zoe Melis, ironically).
  10. Any DLC planned for Y2?
  11. Well, I will ask in a couple of days, if you do not mind.
  12. Well, if no picture can be shown, a description of the improvements would be nice.
  13. They can add whatever disclaimers they want. I am just curious about whether there have been any changes to the interface.
  14. @Legate of Mineta: It would be wonderful if Black Chicken Studios were to release a generic screen shot from Y2: a typical calendar week, with no adjustments to the default schedule, with the character information being shown as the most generic (i.e., basic attribute numbers). Would this be possible?
  15. @Legate of Mineta: 1. What about the student whose use of Mastery in dating caused Academagia to severely restrict dating? 2. Speaking of dating, is there any negation spell that can detect or suppress love? what about Astrology? Or would spells suppressing love, even if from those pillars, be banned as too close to mastery?
  16. @Legate of Mineta: So the punishment would be private, eh? Interesting. 1. Has any Academagia student been executed while a student for using gates magic or mastery since the prohibitions? If so, I presume that such a student is not commemorated as a student who died at the Academagia. 2. Are those students who died due to legal at the time but currently illegal magic commemorated with unmodified monuments, or were the monuments modified to eliminate references to why/how they died? Or does the monument merely list names/dates, never circumstances?
  17. @Legate of Mineta: What are the limits of this freedom from punishment? I presume that it does not extend to any magic use that causes death (whether accident or on purpose) or from the forbidden pillars of magic.
  18. @Legate of Mineta: 1. Do you mean that Noble students at Academagia are not required or encouraged to watch the punishment of students for illegal magic or use of magic, but commoners are required or encouraged to watch the punishment of students for illegal magic or use of magic? 2. What do you mean by "artful mage"? creative? skilled with the Enspell skill? something else? 3. Do people from Malkstrang face prejudice in Mineta due to the idea that everyone in Malkstrang is a thief?
  19. @Schwarzbart: My apologies. I misunderstood your sentence "Adventure help NPC student how much" as "Adventure help PC student how much" and thought that it referred to the uselessness of PCs using Brew skills in Y2 adventures (because Brew and its subskills are rarely used in Y1).
  20. @Schwarzbart: I refer to adventures that would only be available to PCs taking the Brewing course.
  21. @isadorbg and @Schwarzbart: Attending Brew class, as I see it, is useful for three reasons even if a character have a high level in it at beginning of Y1: 1. Gaining a PC formal recognition as a brewer, which may allow for more course options in Y3. 2. Brew-Related Adventures. 3. Gaining higher levels in Brewing (because of how classes work).
  22. Does the fact that the team is considering Y3 courses mean that Y2 is very near completion?
  23. 1. Is Malkstrang really a city where every person is a thief, or are these merely exaggerated travelers' tales? 2. Would students in Y2 be old enough to be legally competent as witnesses to contracts? 3. Would one need to be a powerful mastery mage to create a mastery spell that masters one person and can be rapidly expanded to master other people in response to circumstances?
  24. In my most recent game as a Morvidus Student, I fully maximized study of the Brew Skill and all of its subskills. The result (in combination with Pelia's adventure) was a brew skill level of 13. Naturally, I hope to bring this character into Y2 in order to study brewing. My question is: would a brewing skill level of 13 be high enough to be exceptional in y2? On 1 hand, brewing is a Y2 course, so having a level of 13 in the beginning of Y2 would be a huge advantage. On the other hand, in Y2, skill levels go up to 20. So would such a character gain more than formal recognition by attending a brew class? Or is the completion of the maximum in Brew in Y1 the equal of what Y2 would teach characters?
  25. 2. Do any courses at Academagia involve airships? Traveling in, learning about, etc.?
