  1. Wow, dumb blondes? Stereotype much? Just kidding. Well, there are plenty of blondes also, and I'll point out that s school like the Academagia would naturally have a population with a higher IQ than normal.
  2. I think some questions are in order! :) 1. What's the record for longest amount of time to cast a spell? In theory, How long could you keep a palette up to work on if you wanted to work on a powerful and complex spell? 2. Since the Wall is quite obviously in disrepair in certain segments, a part of me has to ask if tiny bits of it get taken illicitly and sold as souvenirs or research items? How is this combated? 3. How is the Academagia's magic refuse and rubbish dealt with? (After it finally piles up so high that they can't ignore it any more of course...) 4. While Professor Briardi is a very prominent member of the Academagia, seen in many adventures, how much of her influence is due to her position, and how much is from her relationship to the current Legate? If a certain daring Aranaz regent became Legate, wouldn't her influence in the school plummet? Does her present influence inspire some of the malcontents ired by her position t speak out against her more strongly than they might otherwise?
  3. I really do hope that I get to see all that extensive history someday!
  4. Been a while, so I check back, and I see questions being answered! SB; Odds are it would not be powering anything. It would just be a demonstration for the masses. Kind of like here: Legate! How is Y2 Progressing? It's gotta be pretty close to beta now, right?
  5. Yeah, I've taken to coming back after a week, or a month. Barring the Apocalypse happening, Y2 will release sooner or later. I find other things to do to kill time. I'm actually more worried about about Y2 causing more questions than answers, and the Legate's infamously [redacted] comments are unlikely to change, even if many more subjects can be broached on a surface level. Legate: Did that class list of what the 2nd years had available during Y1 get released yet? Don't be a tease! >:(
  6. Ohh, That's more than acceptable. At least it will give us ideas and more understanding without holding you all to commiting to anything. It does mean we're getting closer to that mythical release, doesn't it? Hehe.... I still think that Rhialto is a little too optimistic and we're going to wait a while longer than next year with all that still needs to be done. ...Still, I expect that when progress finally does strike it will come sudden and unexpected.
  7. I'm sorry, I must have gone blind and stupid from having not been on the forum for a bit. Legate, can you reconfirm what I *think* you said, or am I somehow taking things out of context? That there might be a chance for the Y2 class list to finally be revealed, that's almost like someone telling me that Santa is coming to town at this point. 😂
  8. You know, I think you're right! Sadly, I am not in "Academagia Hype" at the moment so my memory on certain details of it are fading to an extent. That we've went 9 years without a new game has absolutely nothing to do with it, I'm sure.
  9. It's been a long while since I did a list of questions here, hasn't it? 1. Does Gates magic allow for opening mundane gates, like, say, the main gate of the Academagia? I admit, simply rending a Gate to bypass the gate would be easier, but.... 2. What are the largest cannons used, at least in Mineta's military? 3. What is the record for the longest duel between two spellcasters? 4. Can you give us the history on one of the more commonly used, well documented, spells that are used by the students to increase their quality of life? (Who made it, who altered it and why, that sort of thing.) 5. Are golems still used in the military? (Naturally, the non-illegal type of golems)
  10. Honestly, I wrote myself into a corner and it took some time to think on how it was going to go from here. I absolutely will finish this, Eventually... But at my pace. Feels nice to be working on it again, even if I'm just going to go on hiatus again... Interlude 1 (Part 10) -------------------------- About the time that Valentino was discussing matters with Twippy and Orso, a meeting was taking place in the Office of the Legate of the Academagia. The Legate, along with his most trusted professors, had grim faces as they discussed the events that had recently passed... "...Oh, I assure you, it goes much deeper than simply using an old forbidden parlor trick. This time, the magics used were so advanced we don't even really know what truly happened." A female professor stated authoritatively. A male professor added. "I suspect the only way we will ever know at this point will be to contact one of the surviving cloistered Alumini of..." "That's absolutely out of the question!" The Legate quickly interjected. "That is the last thing that the school needs right now... A full on inquisition is probably right around the corner. They will be looking for even minute details of corruption. We do not want to have to explain why the school is consorting with Gates masters right after this nightmare." The Legate, a man by the name of Palo Cantrell, was certain there was a conspiracy about. Too many things were falling into place too quickly and too perfectly. It was one thing to deal with that attack by Mjolnir. But this was another thing entirely; A student he trusted implicitly, Orso, was suddenly on the hook for an unexplainable event. Professors long neutral in school politics suddenly shift overwhelmingly to bring down the law. A special convening of the Praetexta court and the Legate of the school only learns of it at nearly the last hour with no time to prepare? Legate Cantrell's options were limited at this point. It was almost as if a script had been placed in front of everyone and they were all compelled to follow it. At the rate that things were going, he was going to have to follow it, too, or face inconceivable consequences. Rubbing his temples, the Legate asked: "Is the Venalicium open yet?" The librarians had been extra cranky for the past few days. Not only had they been required to close the library, but they were also forced to leave a large chunk of it in disarray as the investigation of the Vampire incident dragged on. The vast majority of their displeasure had fallen on the Legate, as the person who must obviously must be to blame for their work being disrupted. He had elected to not visit the Venalicium personally while it was still closed so as to avoid unnecessary conflict with them, but it was looking like he was going to need to visit there very soon. "Not yet." A professor said. "But the so called 'double-dead undead'..." (He winced at having to say the term) "...Have been moved. You can see them now if you want without having to disrupt the librarians." The Legate's face brightened. "Let's go then, we haven't a moment to lose."
  11. Amazing how time flies, isn't it? Over a week and nothing to show for it. To be fair, I had some questions for the Legate. They still haven't been answered yet, but I'm being proactive on giving giving the team time so we don't go a month with no part. :) But honestly it's mostly me being lazy... Part 9. ----------------------- "That's not it at all!" Valentino practically shouted out. "I really appreciate everything you've done!" This seemed to calm Twippy down a tiny bit, although not enough for either Orso or Valentino to relax. Valentino started to think about what to say next, when suddenly time stopped again. It was more natural this time, though it still caught Valentino off guard. It seemed as though Twippy's tantrum had allowed Valentino to use his ability to focus much more smoothly than last time. Probably an indication that the danger was much higher. Being not a total stranger to the concept, and unsure as to how long this state of frozen time would last, Valentino quickly gathered his thoughts as how to best calm Twippy down. Finally, after several "minutes", the pain in his head grew strong enough that he decided that he needed to execute a plan, even if he wasn't fully ready yet. He ultimately decided to try to appeal to her ego. Valentino braced himself mentally, and then after a little bit of coaxing, was able to unfreeze time. Here we go. He thought, while quickly putting his palm on his forehead to try to manage the pain. "You defeated all those vampires by yourself! You're really amazing, twippy!" Valentino said with as much earnestness as he could muster. "I'd have been in big trouble if you hadn't been there to save me!" Twippy calmed down instantly. She had a look of surprise, then a knowing look as if she recognized something, and smiled deeply. "Well, as long as you understand, Wonderful Valentino." Twippy said. She actually blushed. "But you shouldn't use the Fun I gave you so quickly. Improper use can kill humans, and we can't afford to lose you." Well, that answered a few questions that Valentino had. Honestly, after learning that, he wasn't sure he really had wanted to know the answer to those questions now. Still, he had calmed Twippy. "Anyways..." Valentino Started. "I really, really, REALLY need a favor."
  12. Technically, it wouldn't count, as it obviously hasn't started development yet. Any reasonable assumption would be that y5 wouldn't be started until after y4 releases. I'm about 95% sure (I could be wrong, I admit) that at some point the legate admitted that y2 started development shortly after Y1's release, though it probably wasn't on the day of, which would give the Team a little bit more time than the deadline I've arbitrarily set. Still, l think it's a good far-enough-into-the-future date so as to get the team to be motivated to aim to beat. Hopefully by quite a bit of time, but if they don't... Well, I can only wonder what my next sigi will be. :)
  13. It gets better than you think. Since Y2 was pretty much announced as soon as Y1 was released, and we know when Y1 was released... (August 13, 2010) We now have a tentative no-later-than release date of Thursday, September 26, 2024. 😎
  14. Quoting wikipedia there... That's effectively 14 years. So the Team still has a little time to burn, yet, if they're trying to go for a record...
