    A few in game questions

    Each class has a list of pre-determined skills which it will hand out a skill step for on a particular day, with a variance of +/- 3 days, ignoring weekends and holidays. Those lists you can find in the mod tools. Variance, mind, is determined on character creation. If a student is taught Orthography on a particular day that student will always be taught that point of Orthography on that particular day, but a different student could get it taught up to 6 school days earlier or later. As far as save file shenanigans are concerned, I'm guessing more than likely no. It makes more sense to save just the static seed and calculate when steps are taught when needed than it would be to save 17 tables worth of variances and look up the results when needed. I think. Incidentally, if you're going to try the old "save, check what classes teach, reload if necessary" routine, keep in mind that the end of day rapport will only mention skill steps that got taught that lead to a skill level increase. Steps for skills that need multiple skill steps can fly under the radar.

    You can do far worse than that during one particular adventure anyway, so...

    It's classified as "Animal Supplies", which more than likely doesn't have a character slot to put it in, rendering the item unusable. It's a common bug.

    Did the site get an update?

    Yep. There was an issue with account hacking attempts and a forum update was necessary to better solve the problem.

    Didn't the event with Grit's Fang have something like that? I recall there being an investigation option about using either Revision or Negation is favor of the other, because of some trick that was set up with the magical lock?

    Spamming Problem

    Had to blow up the forum to 140% size but it finally utilizes most of my (non-mobile ) monitor space. Checking my mail it seems that I got one about a hacking attempt every three hours (didn't Free mention that ban lasted six?), but the last one is dated over twelve hours ago. Seems like it worked so far? Incidentally, what's up with the list of...emojis? There are suddenly...a lot of them.

    Spamming Problem

    If you have a bleach fetish, maybe. Like, I called the previous update a series of bleached post-it notes, but this is above and beyond the call of monotone. Oh, the spamming thing? Don't know, at least I managed to sign in just fine.

    Spamming Problem

    I object to changes made for the sake of it, or for shoving more ads and/or social media BS into my face. When there's a clear (and actual) benefit I'll be far less annoyed by it.

    Spamming Problem

    Apparently whoever is doing this is reading the forum, because my latest mail (the fourth one, for the record) is now claiming to be from Washington, District of Columbia, 20005, United States.

    Spamming Problem

    The mail said the IP address was banned (for what good that did), so it must be possible to some extend. And I'd rather these attempts get set on fire before it turns out that these spambots are just trying random combinations of letters/symbols/numbers and one of them ends up getting it right. Unlikely, sure, but why bother risking it if you don't have to? Not getting hundreds of mails about it would also be nice.

    Spamming Problem

    Again for me as well. If the Team could just put a blanket ban on all Brazilian IP addresses as far as accessing my account goes, that'd be nice. Rest assured, the day that I travel to South America is the day that frogs rain from the sky.

    Spamming Problem

    I got the same mail I just noticed, also from Brazil.

    Mod Tools

    The .amo is the game's v1.0 database, so that's not usable as a guide. Not if you're using anything as "recent" as DLC 1, at least.

    Researching Classmates?

    "Very few, if any", not "some". The only other one I can find off-hand (indeed, the only other one that might exist) are 6 lores dedicated to Philippe. Mind you that they seem...incomplete? That's the impression I get, anyway.
  15. Fairly easy, yeah. I mean the mod tools are so outdated they can't load the latest mod base and several other functions directly or indirectly don't work, not to mention that there's like three different styles used for quickly describing what effect does what without looking at it but other than that they can be used to look up DLC 15-era stuff easily enough.
