    @Legate of Mineta: In case Academagia Y2 has a strong no-drugs policy, I must clarify that the potion that I had Tabin give the PC during my Sima's Summons adventure was meant to be a legitimate but obscure type of medicine rather than a mere intoxicant.

    A few in game questions

    @Legate of Mineta: If you need any help with editing, I would be happy to volunteer. I love copy-editing. Speaking of languages, do any of the professors allow students to submit course work in a language the the professor and the student are fluent in? For example, Badcrumble could offer to receive course material in Oncestrian. When I studied Chinese literature in an anglophone course, the professor allowed people to write the essays/tests in English or Chinese.

    How goes the Progress for Y2?

    I am tempted to link to threads from other indie development fora in which the developers talk about the importance of marketing their developing games by being transparent about what the game looks like, how it plays, etc.

    Will this discussion greatly delay the release of Y2?

    A few in game questions

    @freespace2dotcom: If you were to replace "a certain type of real life dragon" with "a certain type of real life serpent/lizard", you would have something close to my view. But the idea of having any evil species clearly patterned off of a real life ethnicity/culture/language could easily offend people for various reasons, such as their being part of such an ethnicity/culture/language. Thus, I am glad that BCS has not patterned dragons after any real ethnicity/culture/language. I personally would be offended, for example, if the Dragons were to be patterned off the Tanguts. @Legate of Mineta: 1. Is there any propaganda accusing any culture or state known to the Empire of Man of being not merely controlled by/allied with dragons but actually influenced by dragons in terms of vernacular vocabulary and/or social organization? 2. is the study of draconic language as carefully controlled as the study of reptiles?

    @Metis: There is to this day anti-Mongolian, anti-Chinese, anti-Japanese, etc., sentiment. To give a simple demonstration, if BCS were to claim that the Draconic language was based upon Hebrew, the game could be accused of being anti-Semitic. For these reasons, BCS would be better, I think, to leave the dragons' language undefined. If nothing else, this would enhance the dragons' alienness.

    @Metis: I hope that no answer is given. Associating evil reptilian enslavers of humanity with a real language could be accused of playing into negative stereotypes.

    A few in game questions

    @Legate of Mineta: Will the money that PCs earn during Y1 be carried over to the Y2 school year, barring the player's losing it through some optional spending or optional mishap?

    A pity. Well, I guess that reading Chinese will become even more important for me if the game be not translated.

    A few in game questions

    @Legate of Mineta: Are Castellans often powerful in the Empire of Man, or this the Castellan of Plessent particularly powerful? If so, is it related to Plessant or to his position as Minister of the Garden in Mineta?

    How goes the Progress for Y2?

    @Legate of Mineta: Do any of our suggestions in the Suggestions and Improvements thread delay the release of Y2? Also, will Y2 have more ways to lose Glory?

    @Legate of Mineta: I was assuming that Eluminian corresponds to Latin and Renaglian to some Italian Romance dialect.

    @Legate of Mineta: players who complete Eliana's Y1 adventures should during Y2 be able to visit the bower that she and the PC set up, perhaps gaining bonuses to flowers and a random Society Subskill.
