  1. You can move most of the furniture and workbenches but if you need them made from a different material because of the Feng Shui effect you have to make them new.  Also Walls, Doors and Floor can only be destroyed and rebuild if you need a different layout or material. The problem for me right now is to find the right material and to know how you have to arrange things for the right Feng Shui effect. But maybe I'm just to stupid to understand it despite reading a guide 😵.

  2. current you need to sign up for a beta in Steam to get the English version but so far I didn't see any problems with this "beta".

    Also so far (~2-3h in the game) it really feels like towns in case someone beside the Legate and me knows this game ^^.

  3. I suspect that for the Y2 templates we still can say what the Char had as class in addition to the required core class for the college. For this class we probably would get high skill level (max 10) and the bonus coming from 10 in Study. 

    Wondering if the Legate is allowed to say how far my guess is off. ^^

  4. when I asked "Is there a public count how many Library are at the Academagia grounds? And if so how many of them can be visited with the right donation?" I got this nice answer:



    "Okay, known to the wider public and fairly easily available to the public by donation, appointment, or institutional whim:

    The Venalicium (with previously discussed limitations)
    The Academy Infirmary Library
    The Calomantia Gymnasium Library (such as it is)
    The Menagerie Library Collection (aka Professor Pachait's Reading Room)
    The Dimmae Theatre Collection
    The Spavia Theatre Collection
    The Library of Illusions (if you can find your way)
    The Library of Matilda (Morvidus's botanical and alchemical library)
    The Library of Orthographical Curiosity & Insight (technically an Aranaz library, though von Rupprecht scorns it)
    The Library of the Mantle of Stars (the most famous Avila collection)
    Known to the wider public but harder to access:
    The Fairwell Collection (Hedi's private archive, including the donated papers of a great many famous alumni)
    The Grand Alchemical Library (Godina's old crown jewel, sealed off to the student body when finances wouldn't permit round-the-clock staffing; with donations, visitors can come and be served by upperclassmen)
    The Sestani Archive (Aranaz's historical collection)
    The Silent Library (Durand's collection, secured against pirate attack)
    The Vernin College Library New Collection (scheduled to open in the near future, when its tower is complete)
    Forgotten by the wider public, but available by donation or appointment:
    The Library of Longshade
    The Library of Mantele
    Known to the wider public and totally inaccessible:
    The Legate's Library


    There was also a lot about the Venalicium in the recent answers that I also should save over here:


    The Venalicium is a special case, of course.  The rule there is that admission is limited to the people the library itself allows to enter; the main doors (or what we think of as the main doors) recognize Academy students, so almost everyone in the school gets a pass.  (Though Philippe's brother Dexter was barred for the second half of his second year for reasons that only astrologers can guess.)  In other cases, though, people have to find doors that will admit them - or, as in the case of a certain scholar from Wetgen who thought he'd found a side entrance to his favorite alehouse only to step through and find himself in an antechamber thousands of miles to the south - sometimes doors find them."
    If your not living at Academagia you present yourself at the Grand Gate and declare your intent to visit the Venalicium, you'll be allowed onto the Academy grounds if it can be proven that you've made a pact with the Venalicium itself. This is generally as simple as stating that you've been invited to enter to the guards. To lie can have dire consequences. If your intentions are not malicious, it'll turn you away (in which case it's likely you'll stagger through a haze of glamours and find yourself back outside the Gate wondering what's happened.) Sometimes you can be given access, but you've essentially placed yourself under its protection while you're on Academy grounds.  If you do so under false pretenses, it's understood that bad things can happen - they say the thief Giancarlo Moro found himself trapped in the pages of a tragedy, reliving the story over and over again, for more than three hundred years.
    Academy graduates remain entitled to enter the Venalicium through the main doors unless their status is changed by the librarians or by the library itself.  (Some have visitation rights revoked, while others are permitted to enter through the Silver Door, or Scholars' Door, which leads directly to a series of private study areas collectively known as the Chancery and the Illuminarium.  The librarians themselves enter either through the main doors or the Oak Door.)


  5. Is there a public count how many Library are at the Academagia grounds? And if so how many of them can be visited with the right donation?


    Is librarian at a library for books about magic a job exclusive for people that know magic and if so what level of education is needed?
