  1. Is it intended that the year 2 import tool check each student if they can cast at last 1 spell? (I personal doubt it as it would mean year 2 already need to handle drop outs)
  2. What where the spells the player was asked if (s)he can demonstrate at end of the year 1? I suspect its different depend on the class that was taken.
  3. It is kind of sad that such info isn't transmitted to the player when creating a character. I.e. I had not to few character that only have Enchant or Calligraphy as "magic" class skills. Would student who can craft magic item by the end of year 1 also stopped to move on to year 2 if they can't demonstrate a normal spell?
  4. but if you focus exclusive on familiar I don't think you can stay long in Academagia, even if your a Morvidus student. You might manage to get past year 2 with be great in handling your familiar and some non / not so magical subjects but I doubt they let you pass year 3. Hmm wait Aranaz have with history a pure non magic main subject now ... that make me wonder if there was someone already who managed to go through 4 or 5 years who can't handle the Palette - Pheme casting? (don't think it possible for the player as each skill have spells and pheme in Y1)
  5. let me guess there also some human piloted golem that use this method of control?
  6. We forum reader still need to remind us that there is still a lot of time before the release of a Y2 where even already announced things could be kicked out of the game again because they are no fun or not important enough for the still needed development time. (Like Alchemy was dropped pretty late from the Y1 development)
  7. What college have the highest living quality for girls in their dorms? I suspect first Vernin and then despite financial problems Avila. And for boys? I suspect again first Vernin but then Gondia as second.
  8. ohh so the game use a uncompiled db? I found it actual a good idea to have to "compile" the db before it can use in the game not to bad although it took quite the time to do so. By going with a different db format between edit and use for the game one can use one optimized for edit and search while the other for fast execution and reduced space use.
  9. you can just withhold the DB and release the tool with the game it self if it is just about Year 2 spoiler. This way projects for y1 could be worked on again earlier.
  10. Any News on the Class list of Y2 during Academagia Year 1?
  11. The Legate recently promised in the VB forum that there will be a release this year. I just suspect it will be a public alpha or beta. For how the Legate careful worded it you have to look your self there:
  12. Unusual for you to give such a clear timeframe for a release, even if it is probably just a public beta or something.
  13. I personal think humans would consider such a person to be always was a dragon who just disguised him self as human.
  14. So maybe a project for Pathfinder 4 and D&D 8 or even later
  15. Ohh No that sound like a book project in addition to the Game.
  16. Didn't the planning for Y1 start even 1 or 2 decade before you had the money to work on it?
  17. Was the compression engine checked in Y1? I wonder because this was one of the big changes between pre Steam and Steam version.
  18. So my question about the class list for the current Year 2, while our char is in year 1, will also not be answered until the Beta of Y2?
  19. A bit mean question: Is the person that said we have to roll up the development and get to a release for Acdemagia and Scheherazade still working for BCS? I somehow have the feeling BCS is missing such a person now as there is always something the developer say they need to improve for a big game.

    Part 2

    From my understanding BCS plan to release Victory Belles next and with luck it might be this year, what means it would be "only" 3 years + some month late. Although the Legate said VB and Academagia have different teams working on it, I doubt it by now! That why I think Academagia, that is supposed to be released before BCS start to work on Scheherazade, will be earliest 1 year after the VB release. That brings us to Scheherazade there is no status change at all after your last question because the team not even started to work on it. I even wonder if our grand children will see the completion of any of this series given how slow BCS brining out new games, even if they somehow manage to limit them self just to the 3 Games and drop things like Holdfast. (If I be mean I would say BCS have the huge problem that they not find the point when to stop to add new things, and that extend the development till the point where the base engine got to old so they have to replace it ...)
  21. 1) Will a later year have penalty for the player for wearing outfit of the wrong colour or pattern? (like wearing a magic item that have a design or colour only noble are allowed to wear) 1b) If so can this mitigated trough magic? (I.e. Glamour and Revision that change the colour / pattern)
  22. Would it possible that a Gate magus trick other that a summoned ghost or other creature is his / her familiar and so is allowed to have it by his/ her side? (I don't have any story idea on this my self but this could be lead to an interesting NPC student or at later year allow a player who sacrificed the familiar to pretend to have a familiar while using i.e. a Library Ghost)
  23. Especial when you just add a forbidden Pheme to improve a normal spell I doubt anyone would step out and put them self in the spotlight to also know about the forbidden magic.
  24. I just hope the combat engine is also turn-based as there only few games that managed to mix turn-based and real-time elements well.
  25. Is it common that depend on the route the goods of a freight loan the protection of the goods with mercenary is required to get the freight loan? Maybe even down to what mercenary group need to hired or how many of what type of mercenary?
