    A few in game questions

    Ana does pretty good overall. She's typically #2 in my games as well. I'm pretty sure that my gradebook is about 95% accurate. Minute details might be wrong but the overall pattern is surely correct. I'm glad I made that gradebook. When Y2's gradebook comes out, I'll ask the Legate to sticky the thread.

    Question about mechanics of gaining new skills

    my gut says yes, but it may also be even, depending on your skill and the roll. I'd say look up the modtools to check out the rolls but the last modbase we can access is rather out of date...

    Question about mechanics of gaining new skills

    To be fair, my old sigi would be pretty large if the Legate had kept promising that we'd get Y2 "next year". I'd have 9 quotes from 9 separate occasions across 9 years.(!) As they say, once bitten (or burned,I suppose) twice shy.

    How goes the Progress for Y2?

    Yup. I'm sure the Beta for Y2 will emerge before we hear of the converter. In any case, Legate... How is Y2's UI developing? I still haven't seen a new map of Mineta surface on Deviant Art.I would think that such a thing would be posted there if it exists, but since the Team is so blasted secretive it could go either way.

    Steam achievement suggestion for Academagia

    Agreed!

    Funny, as the Legate has already said that Emilia Strollin's father bought both title and estate. Then again, rules don't matter much to those associated with College Aranaz. ❤️

    Surely they can. It all depends on whether the owner is willing to sell...

    will things we did in y1 affect our summer break?

    To be fair, the list of nobility that we were given specifically mentioned that it was the ones which could be fairly easily determined.

    That *would* be a nice function to use in conjunction with a certain gradebook...

    An Alternative way to Divide Magics

    That kind of sounds like something that would be taught at the Pievere University of magic, doesn't it?

    Will there be guns in this game?

    No comment because the team won't reveal cool stuff about future years. 'Yes', because there's no good reason not to.

    Will there be guns in this game?

    Saw that coming a mile away. I would take that as a 'yes', personally.

    Let's Play Academagia! Dolan Durn

    That's a problem when you play the game too much. That's partially why I haven't played a full game in years. I got locked too heavily into a single path of playing. You get better results by refining your play over and over, but I feel that Academagia is just as much about the path you take as the end result. It gets less fun if you just break it down into numbers and don't roleplay at all. Just makes me all the more hungry for when Y2 finally arrives.

    Major bug in Luti Jaconelli's Adventure

    If they do decide to do a patch, I'm fairly sure they'll wait until they have a list to implement before going ahead with it. One thing is barely worth screwing with, honestly. Especially since they really hadn't planned on doing another patch.

    Good luck with this, it's an awful lot of work...

    Where did Black Chicken Studios get the Name Rikildis?

    Yeah, names are a nightmare due to all the variations possible. I recall reading that when the King James Bible was being translated, the only substantial difference in the many manuscripts they scrutinized was the names.

    Where did Black Chicken Studios get the Name Rikildis?

    The general questions thread is fine for this, imo. Once this question is answered, it will just be abandoned. Do as you will, of course. My OCD just acts up in scenarios like this. That being said, There are a lot of names out there. I'm 99% sure that all the NPC names were carefully chosen for a reason. It kind of reminds me of Professor Aventyrare having a name meaning "adventure" Now that's got to be an extremely rare name, but surely it was chosen for theming. I couldn't find the meaning of Rikildis, but I do believe there's a good chance it falls in the same category.

    ..You know, you don't have to open a new thread every time you want to k a new question like this. Just an opinion...

    A few in game questions

    Given that Y3 is an untold length of time away, I'd like to ask some questions about Y2's game mechanics. without going into too much detail. 1. You've said that mixing magic will start to be seen in Y2, even though I'm sure we won't even touch the really advanced stuff yet. Will we get to see a little bit of what happens when Gates and Mastery magic is mixed together? (Assuming we put in the effort to do so, of course) 2. Even if we don't cast illegal spells in adventures, will a sufficiently high skill set cause us to have detectable auras? (I know this borders on redacted, but I figured, it would be nice to know how high one can get without seriously using the magic) 3. Will we have a more flexible system of punishments for those who skip classes? Like if you're habitual about missing class, you start getting demerits? I really feel that even if that's too harsh for every class, perhaps there would be one professor that would be notorious for doing so, and some professors don't care so long as you get good grades. Will something like that be implemented? 4. Regarding the mentor system. If we do become mentors, will we all get the same one student to mentor, (like Oan is always ours) or will there be a few that will be randomly chosen? 5. What can you tell us about what's left to do regarding the programming for Y2 to finally get it into our hands? (ignoring things like the save converter) ---------------------- Now, more lore questions. 6. Who was the youngest child to ever be accepted at the Academagia? I assume it's pretty standardized now, but given how long ago the school was founded, I supposed extraordinary circumstances caused some children under 10 to be considered at some point, even though due to the difficulty of learning magic, it wouldn't be wise to accept many of them too young. 7. Do professors generally frown on a student applying magical knowledge learned from other classes in their own, even if it is sufficiently applicable to the lesson that they're trying to teach? 8. Even after all this time, I still don't have a very good feel for Professor Ringraeyer, compared to almost all the other professors, whom stand out to me in at least one way.. (I think it's that she isn't in many adventures, especially compared to, say, Briardi, or Von Rupprecht. Plus the one major one I think of with her has her Mastered, so it is not a good bar to set for her personality normally.) Can you give me some insight as to what she would think of my desire to be an omni-disciplinarian? 9. Speaking of omni-disciplinarians, the description of the Corner Sight spell says that none of it's phemes are particularly hard to draw, so it's very probable that it would be a much more common spell if not for having phemes which belong to several different pillars. As just about all spells cast as a first year are pretty much given to us, with only a little room given for experimenting within a single pillar, I'd like to ask what *could* happen if I started stringing other simple phemes from multiple pillars together, especially with no experience in how they might interact? I suppose that the large amount of unknowns is a big part of the reason why Briardi would be so against a student being an omni in the first place. Are there any good stories about deceptively simple spells that can punch and backfire above their weight class due to belonging to different pillars?

    What sort of new students do you expect for next year?

    It's all but confirmed that a few new ones will show up if certain conditions are met. A few minor characters may become proper npcs, and it's likely that the team would consider player written characters, as in Y1. I in fact have an idea for one myself but I'm keeping that one close to my chest.

    A few in game questions

    Thanks, Legate! Thanks, Team! Sorry for being a pest, but you know what they say about the squeaky wheel! And thanks, Schwarzbart! It had been so long since the questions were asked, it's easy to forget which one was which! PS. Happy holidays!

    What about if a solution is (miraculously) found for the vista save corruption bug?
