  1. I wonder, now that the final patch for Y1 has been released, and 2018 is well advanced, whether Black Chicken Studios would be kind enough to tell us how the progress goes. If they will not do this, might they at least tell us something about Y2's mechanics for adventures? Either would be a great encouragement to me as I write Y2 adventures. I do not want to think that I write for a game that will never be released.
  2. What about "Progress for Academagia Y2"?
  3. 1. Is there any movement that wants to ban theatre in Auncesay? 2. Does the Thieves Guild bribe the Minetan watch? What about the Legate of Mineta?
  4. 1. How common are gangs such as the Southside Pitts in Mineta? 2. Does the Thieves' Guild recruit from such gangs? did it arise from such a gang? 3. Just to confirm, the Thieves' Guild is illegal, right? the game is not going the Terry Pratchett route, right (though if it were to, this would be all right)? I have questions that I would like to ask about the Thieves Guild and crime in Mineta later once I know whether it is illegal.
  5. @Legate of Mineta: I hope to ask the sort of question that I asked on this thread about every 2 weeks, if you do not mind.
  6. 1. Are microscopes known? 2. Would students who made inquiries about how useful gates magic was in exploring the world get in trouble? 3. Were any Academagia students not of the official religion of the Empire of Man ever punished for their faith? 4. Did Academagia students not of the official religion of the Empire of Man only come from Saisyne and Oursouk (aside from Miya), or did any come from other lands, such as Valvili? 5. Have religious scriptures been censored to remove references to New Gods and saints using Gates and Mastery?
  7. What progress has been made within the past 2 weeks, if I may ask?
  8. I have, after much thinking, decided that the final portion of this adventure should be divided into two stages, with the first including an option to end the adventure early. I just could not think of a way for Sima's meeting to be inconspicuous within the school, and I do not want to force any player to have to play as a character foolish enough to follow anybody - especially one as mysterious as Sima - into a shadowy space between buildings with no knowledge of what they are doing. The second and final stage will have many more options. Any feedback is welcome. Reporting to Sima:
  9. Any feedback on any portion of this adventure would be welcome. Requires Relationship > 5 with Beatrix von Wetgen, PC does not have Heritage: Staadan. Wandering with Beatrix von Wetgen 00 and 01
  10. @Legate of Mineta: @Metis's question makes me wonder - are rooms that are specifically warded against magic (possibly even to the extent of suppressing active magical effects) known? if so, are they common in extremely secure places or research facilities?
  11. 1. Is Miya the first student in Academagia's history to not belong to the state religion? 2. How much does the school know or care about her real background? Given the intrigued that has been mentioned as surrounding noble students from the Empire of Man, I would think that they would make at least a few inquiries - am I right? 3. What is the scholarly opinion about life from other worlds that would arrive through non-gates magic? Would such life (leaving aside scholarly opinions) be viewed with suspicion as merely a disguise for gates-created life?
  12. @Legate of Mineta: Would I be correct in thinking that Nugen's Alley is associated with Gates Magic? I ask because the in-game description is suggestive: "The mysterious Nugen’s Alley shows up only when someone with the ‘proper’ skills calls for it." And is the name Nugen an allusion to the Discworld god Nugen from Monstrous Regiment?
  13. I was wondering if the following triggers could be used to permit players to begin adventures or encounter random events during Y2: 1. Whether a PC or NPC has passed and/or failed a Y1 course. 2. Whether a PC and an NPC have Affection (and/or Love) between each other. 3. Whether the PC and a professor or Regent have a given relationship value. Similarly, I wonder whether the presence of Affection (and/or Love) between the PC and and NPC and the presence of a relationship of varying strengths between the PC and professor or Regent could be used as the basis for certain choices within random events or adventures.
  14. Thank you for the answer. A major problem in writing a story is resolved now.
  15. Is it possible to trigger a choice in an adventure based upon whether the PC is informed of another character?
  16. 1. What could the penalty be, if she were prosecuted? And were such laws more enforced in the past? 2. I can think of how boating would be a useful part of zoology, and perhaps incantation classes. Is this a correct guess?
  17. @Schwarzbart: An excellent treatment of the relationship between mages and magicians is found in the Morvidus-exclusive adventure "Familiar Distress". @Legate of Mineta: 1. Would Miya be violating any laws by practicing her religion or talking about it to others? 2. Are student at Academegia ever taken boating as part of classes? or have such things happened in the past?
  18. @freespace2dotcom: I look forward to reading your story once it is completed. Did the information include clues about when Y2 will be released?
  19. @Legate of Mineta: 1. Are mangoes known in Mineta? 2. How are new species treated in Mineta? are there always respectable people who think that they are gates-created, or does this only apply to very strange species, such as platypodes?
  20. @Legate of Mineta: When will the video be released?
  21. @Legate of Mineta: Are there or were there ever people who, in a way analogous to contemporary terrestrial "doomsday preppers" constantly strive to prepare for a draconic invasion? Would such activity be legal in the Empire of Man, or would it be seen as a pretext for rebellious elements to gather?
  22. @Legate of Mineta: 1. Are any laws or regulations in place preventing satyrs from owning houses in Frontino or Mineta? 2. Are any non-human intelligent humanoid species commonly assumed to be allied to dragons or dragons' puppets? 3. Are Nagas (intelligent magical serpents) known to Cyve?
  23. @Urthor: But the consequences of knowing about Gates magic have not yet been implemented into the game. Supposedly, in Y2, it will have a greater consequence. One adventure in which Gates magic makes things much easier is "Just Another Day in Mineta".
  24. 3. Has there ever been a combination of negation magic, astrology, and enchantment/artificing to create an artifact to detect other magical artifacts? 4. Are some magical artifacts themselves created from incanted material? if so, does the enchantment needed to maintain an incanted object interfere significantly with the other enchanting magics?
  25. @Legate of Mineta: Are any of the characters from this game from that campaign? And a couple of in-universe questions: 1. Are astrologers often used as detectives/finders of missing people/objects? 2. Are there weapons that are enchanted to inflict wounds that are more difficult to cure through magical and mundane means? are such weapons legally restricted?
