  1. Is there any student or faculty member at the Academagia who is (in)famous for being particularly vocal about Pievre, for good or ill?
  2. Was more thinking along the lines of a cheaper/easier/what have you kinda-sorta backdoor way to achieve immortality...at least, mostly. Or something close enough to it .
  3. Is there a (non-academic) legal difference between magic that turns people into undead and magic that turns people into constructs? I suspect that both would equally qualify as illegal Gates magic, but...just checking...
  4. I can see Station: Merchant and Prodigy: Debate Master, but why Family: Helpful and Attentive? What part of...Pievrean doesn't sound right, Pievran? Pievren? Piev-something culture or something else makes HaA a good fit?
  5. Are there any PC backgrounds, in Y1 or Y2, that should be taken as confirmation that the PC hails from Pievre? EDIT: It's been mentioned before that faculty has been involved in breaking up Cliques and the like before, either at the behest of someone's parents or for their own purposes, but has the opposite ever happened before? Has the faculty ever played matchmaker for any of their students, either at the request of someone's parents or (New Gods knows why) for their own purposes?
  6. What is the Minetan equivalent of the term "holy grail" as it pertains to a major advancement in a given field of research?
  7. Are there licenses or other ways to legally import/own the stuff, say if you were researching the stuff for it's possible uses as a painkiller? And did you miss the edits ?
  8. What is Pievre's view of these substances, both legally and culturally? And how commonly available/known are they in that area, if at all. EDIT: While I'm at it, here's another few that got lost to time (for a time )
  9. Although most adventures only reference the students in the PC's year or the odd older student who has been named (Philippe's brothers, Oan, etc.) are there any unmentioned older students the PC heard something about during Y1? I imagine that at least one older student made enough of a scene at one point, whether for good or ill, that people ended up talking/gossiping about in the Great Hall (of course whether the PC ever learned the full truth of that story is likely to be doubtful at best).
  10. What would happen if someone disguised themselves as an Academagia student and tried to enter the Venalicium Library, and the library (IIRC said to be more aware/sentient/something than a collection of books should necessarily be?) refused to admit the disguised person? What kind of spectacle would that create, if any?
  11. Is 1.0 Y2 even open to new stuff at this point? I forget where but I recall being told...somewhere...that every new addition suggested will be added in DLC packs at the earliest.
  12. Why not, what's the story behind that rule? And if it's unknown/[REDACTED], what answer would a professor give a student asking that same question?
  13. 3. Has a Familiar ever attended the Academagia as a full-fledged student?
  14. Because Free will be able to dust off his old sig and add a new addition added to it ?
  15. Are there legends of valkyries or valkyrie-like...I'unno, beings, people, divine entities, spirits, whatever in Academagia?
  16. 1. Would it be at all possible to change the design of such a specifically designed Familiar after the fact, without resorting to illegal magic? If yes, how much modification can be done? If not, or if it isn't known all that well or whatever, would trying to figure out a method be something that Orsi could be convinced to sink his teeth in? Whether genuinely or only as an excuse to do something other than the worst work that his office has on offer. 2. How advanced, common, cheap to produce, etc., are general and/or local anaesthetics in the game's setting? Since barbers still double as dentists I'm assuming "not very much", and IIRC ingame text seems to supports that idea - the PC's treatment stage during An Outing... in particular comes to mind as one example where if anaesthetics existed they probably would have have been available and used in that scene. But it just sounds like one of those things that every brewer and their dog would have tried to create at some point or another, and surely one of them would have succeeded at some point. So...what's the story?
  17. Who acts as the tiebreaker? I'm assuming there is one if there's an even number of seats.
  18. How many seats does Mineta's Golden Council have? IIRC both of Catherine's parents have a seat, how many others are there?
  19. Was the "and if so, could you tell us about it" not implied there, Legate ?
  20. Meta-wise Sync was introduced too late for any NPC student to have been designed with a direct interest in it, though it might end up indirectly falling within the wheelhouse of a few of them one way or another. I'd also like to note that Sync isn't designed for mind-control, as such, but whether Sima would realize that fact and/or have a different definition of the term than I do...separate questions, perhaps. Question of my own: How are homunculi, referring to artificial humans created by alchemists (brewers?), created/viewed/treated/utilized/taken care of (maintained?)/look/etc.? And if their creation is banned under the heading of Gates magic in the current age, what answers to the above questions, if any, could an Academagia student in the history section of the Academagia's Venalicium dig up on the subject?
  21. There's an RE in Y1 where Joana goads Uliva into sending a snake to try and spook Professor Pachait during Zoology class, so if it isn't in character for her in general than at least it's in character for her to be talked into it.
  22. Makes sense for the PC, but I was wondering if Y2 will attempt to simulate Y1 with the NPC students or if they're all going to start with no cliques formed and no higher/lower relationship values (student-specific exceptions like Cyrus/Olivia aside) like they do at the start of Y1. I'll admit that the latter would probably be more convenient for new players, but it's also kinda...really boring? I think some randomization like that could go a long way to make the game more interesting on future playthroughs, so maybe it's worth it.
  23. Random Y2 question: If you don't import a Y1 save into Y2 do the students start in randomized cliques like they realistically would if you did import a Y1 save, or do you get a Y1 situation where everyone starts as a free agent?
  24. 1. Is a foreign criminal, be they from Meril, Alesfa, Pievre, Oursook (insofar that they still have a recognizable/interpretable legal system?) or wherever else, automatically considered a criminal in Mineta? 2. Can foreign criminals be granted some kind of pardon for their crimes in Mineta, at least insofar that they're no longer considered a criminal in Mineta itself? 3. What would it take for someone to be granted such a pardon, assuming it is (was?) possible?

    KS Update 193

    And I'm pretty sure I said exactly that a year or two ago, Legate. Do take care not to end up with another Freespace quote .
