  1. To clarify: Is Corradin alone in trying to stay on good terms with Catherine Chard, or is that something his entire family is working on (the latter probably not focussing on Catherine herself so much as the Chards in general, of course)?

    The DLCs contain both fan-made content as well as content made by the Team. And the former goes through the Team's checking and editing before being added, for what that's worth. As for Academagia's story, in it's current form it doesn't have a defined story (nor a defined ending) so much as it is a narrative sandbox - you can take your character as far as your imagination is able to take it, or only as far as you're able to get until the game ends after Kaliri 28th. If you expect to see a full story about what happens to the major players in town and what effect your character can have on them, don't pick up the game. Y1 contains nothing of the sort. Y1 contains the introductions for said major players and rest of the setting, and a whirlwind of stuff for you to play with/off against in the sandbox. In short: Academagia requires you to write about as much as it requires you to read, in it's current state. If that means no deal, just skip the game. There's plenty more out there.

    Plans, yes, but ultimately Y2 would only be the second year out of the planned five, so if Y2 not being out is a problem for you than chances are once it comes out Y3 not being out will be(come) a problem, and than Y4, and than Y5, and by that point if my grandchildren (well, grandnieces at any rate) are still alive I'd be surprised. Basically, ask yourself this: Can you play something like a Bethesda game without ever touching the major questlines at all, beyond what part of the main questline constitutes the game's intro sequence, and have fun without feeling like the game (insofar that you played it) was missing anything resembling a coherent and engaging story? If yes, chances are you can enjoy Academagia (although whether you will is of course a completely separate question). If no, I'd recommend skipping it.
  4. Because Y1 still has errors like the Prodigy: Incantation thing, and it wouldn't do for Y2 to inherit them. For example, it'd be very awkward if a Y2 adventure assumed a Y1 Incantation prodigy would have the increased skill max...only for that background to still be bugged. I imagine there's at least a few errors like that.
  5. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Realistically I don't see Y1 -> Y2 importing happening without one final patch on Y1's end. In the meantime things like Prodigy: Incantation and whatever other final bugs were found can, hopefully, be fixed.
  6. I didn't specify any requirements for the adventure, and I don't think the Team added any beyond a time gate for...a mysterious reason (actually the first or second stage does benefit from it being a warmer season, so as minor a point as it is I guess it makes sense to be a post-winter adventure?). Since the latest modbase can't be opened with the outdated mod tools you'd need to ask the Legate as to what specific requirement(s), if any, it has.
  7. ...Remind me where Lambert openly casts a Gates spell? Pamela's adventure?
  8. Would I be correct in thinking that, with the Gates ban and the subsequent loss of exorcism magic, the bar for which ghosts haunting the Academagia actually getting removed rather than bricked up and forgotten about (see: the two duelling ghosts in the one Aranaz adventure) has been raised?
  9. Trying to phrase this question in a way that it doesn't get answered with [REDACTED]: Are, say, legends of people having out of body experiences while still alive a thing? Like, someone gets knocked the hell out and (only briefly, I imagine) wanders around as a ghost, not knowing that their body still lives?
  10. I thought you allied yourself with the Costers (insofar that a main adventure allowed you to do so) through the Pirate's main adventure?
  11. If it's not in C:\ProgramData\Academagia than I've got no idea, I don't have the Steam version.
  12. I believe deleting the cache and the corrupted savefile should fix this issue? IIRC the problem is that the corrupted save file corrupts the cache, which other save files use to quickly load, so the effect of the corrupted savefile occurs with other saves as well?
  13. I would just like to provide a quote from Iustus' Y1 student adventure:
