  1. @Legate of Mineta: 1. Can I write that Pelia wanted a job in Morvidus's library but was prohibited due to her Y1 efforts to steal a book about dangerous and poorly understood magic? 2. Are there plans for the PC to be able to work in a library in order to earn money and skills?
  2. Has any major progress been made in coding within the past three months?
  3. I did editing to Sima's Gift - replacing "gates' mages downfalls" with "gates mages' downfalls".
  4. @Legate of Mineta: I have removed from my adventure "Zoe Melis and Eliana Carosi" the second use of the memory "Roxan Captured". I hope that the Team will do likewise.
  5. So, in 2001 was published a book named "Secret in the Stones" (Tales of the Nine Charms #2) by Erica Farber and John R. Sansevere with a character named Zoe. Their Zoe was approximately the same age as Zoe Melis, also sought to be popular and wealthy, and found herself in a place where much magic was practised and many people were richer, more powerful, and more beautiful than she was. The two Zoes were both willing to ignore social norm associated with virtue in order to get ahead in life. Their Zoe was also evil, working with evil beings in order to get what she wanted, interested in jewels, and willing to use mind-control in order to help her evil allies (these later three traits I associate with Zoe Melis's fellow Hedi student Sima Venesico). I am aware that "Secret in the Stones" is a very obscure book, and I would be not surprized if I were to learn that Black Chicken Studios has never heard of it. But I find the similarities to be inspiring and depressing. Inspiring because they have encouraged me to write Zoe Melis in a slightly darker, amoral light - as a character whose story could, in theory, lead her to making the sorts of deals which Zoe in "Secret in the Stones" made. I do not write Zoe Melis's lack of interest in serving gods as a manifestation of this amorality, though. Depressing because "Secret in the Stones" came out in 2001 and ended with a cliff-hanger ending, and the series has yet to be completed - nor will it be, apparently. So, I hope that Academagia will not be similarly unfinished.
  6. @Legate of Mineta: Could there be a research topic with only 10 levels throughout the whole series of games?
  7. @Legate of Mineta: I hope that one potential romance for future years could be between a student of the Schohanwicht PC and an Oursuki gates mage who, although insane due to [redacted] at the school, is more than comic relief - and can be rescued from the Oursuki school and made saner by a PC. Gates mages make good rescuers, as Y1 already reveals.
  8. @Legate of Mineta: Have all of the fans' suggestions for Y2 and added content caused delays in finishing Y2's writing?
  9. @Legate of Mineta, I have a proposed research topic for Y2 that would be based upon something that is definitely in the Public Domain - the Aklo letters. I was thinking that Uliva could use some secret script called Aklo, which would be an abugida. The lore would introduce to the player what abugidas are while hinting about the things that would be written in the fictional Aklo abugida.
  10. @Legate of Mineta: Is the name Oan pronounced with 2 syllables?
  11. Yes. That is what I meant. @Legate of Mineta, would it be possible for stories in Y2 to admit that second year students were meant to study brewing during their first years, or would that be inappropriate?
  12. @Legate of Mineta: 2 questions: 1. Would it be unacceptable to have an event that could result in a player having a vendetta on the very first day of classes in Y2? 2. Would it be unacceptable to have an event that would, among other things, allow an NPC to gain an action type?
  13. @Legate of Mineta: Have any of our unimplemented suggestions for Y1 been implemented in Y2?
  14. @Legate of Mineta: Has the Team discussed releasing the list of Familiars in Y2 yet?
  15. @Legate of Mineta: Are automatic wheelchairs (powered by steam engines or magic) known in the Empire of Man?
