Academagia now on Steam Greenlight, eagerly awaiting your votes
The Team came up with a first draft of the script for the Greenlight video- thought you all might have some fun, and see if there's anything you feel we ought to explicitly mention.
ORSO: [Whispering.] Polisena, are you sure you don't want to do this?
ORSO: [Whispering.] Seriously, I'm sure prospective students would really rather hear from you than me. We both know you actually run the place. I just sign the...
ORSO: [Whispering.] OW! Fine.
ORSO: My ladies and my lords. My name is Orso Orsi, and I'm...
ORSO: Okay, listen. I was a terrible student in my time, but I managed to become a wizard. Then I became a spy, and I fought in a few wars, and I made some inconvenient friends, and now... well, because life is full of little ironies, now I am more or less the headmaster of the school at which I was a terrible student.
ORSO: This place behind me: the Academy of Mineta. The Academagia. The greatest single beacon of learning set down on these great islands since the tyranny of the Dragons broke and the New Gods gave humanity a chance to be more than slaves and puppets.
ORSO: You're here because we want you to join us. I don't care if your parents were gravediggers, or if you're descended from kings. Or both.
ORSO: I don't care if your Familiar is a dog or a spider or a talking doll that rampages through the school when you're not looking.
ORSO: There are eighty-some other students in your class, and I guarantee you that you're not going to be the most annoying. We have astrologers. We know.
ORSO: And, Gods, don't get me started on the professors. You'll love some of them, others are basically just basilisks in expensive shoes.
ORSO: But we all want you here.
ORSO: I'm not going to lie. These are turbulent times. There are wizards running amok, and the school's infested with secret societies, and we're all living in the shadow of the murderous politics of the oldest, richest, most hectic city in all Elumia. The old Empire is dead, and after all this time we still don't really know what's taking its place.
ORSO: We can mostly protect you from that if you want to be protected. If you just want to tend to your schooling, you'll attend classes almost every day, improve hundreds of skills, and hopefully never have to deal with anything worse than the occasional random air pirate attack. You'll come out with great grades and a worthy future in a wider world.
ORSO: If you don't want to be protected... oh, we have adventures waiting for you.
ORSO: Hundreds. Hundreds of stories waiting to be lived!
ORSO: Save the city. Fight undead witches. Survive prank wars. Run away from dragons, explore old tombs, infiltrate ghost-trapping societies, whatever. Don't tell your parents, but there are so many ways you can nearly get yourself killed around this place...
ORSO: Yes, yes, Polisena. Spare me the stink-eye.
ORSO: I don't encourage recklessness, of course.
ORSO: What I do encourage is that you come here and find out what kind of wizard... no, what kind of person you want to be.
ORSO: School's not for the teachers, and it's not for the headmaster. It's for you.
ORSO: It's a school of magic. Make what you want of it.
ORSO: Just try not to burn down anything important.
