  1. Always she is in the PC's College.
  2. @Legate of Mineta: How advanced is the study of geology?
  3. I am quite interested in Aaran - he seems wise beyond his years, and could probably explain some fascinating theories. His hair is so striking, also. Tabin is also interesting - a deep thinker and well-groomed - but very dangerous to exes, I do not doubt.
  4. If we were of a similar age, I would find Beatrix von Wetgen to be very interesting - she is scientifically interested but also athletic and cheerful. But realistically, (again with the age caveat), I would probably be most successful with Zoe Melis. I was and am like her - sickly, socially isolated, and loving to study and learn obscure languages.
  5. @Legate of Mineta: Any update about the writing about Y2's core courses?
  6. @Expert Astrologer: Morvidus is my favourite college, and it is easiest to play as, I find. Its unique adventures are amazingly well-written and interesting to me.
  7. Well, Miss Chard and her family are interesting characters.
  8. @Expert Astrologer: I am glad that you feel that that 3 glory is a great achievement. I always find glory to be so difficult to justify getting, though, because it is not publicly tracked and has no definite in-game effects. In one playthrough, I had to choose between getting 2 glory and one point of insight - I chose the insight. What was this character's final statistics?
  9. @Legate of Mineta: It is set in a very unexplored period for videogames - Carthaginian Spain!
  10. @Legate of Mineta: What are some symptoms of Zoe's illness? Aside from shedding hairs?
  11. There is a new life simulation game, called A Legionary's Life. It is very historically interesting, but the combat is difficult.
  12. The Bone and Earth School is not a school like Contu's Academy, nor like the Schohanwicht, nor even like the Purple Academy of Thei. Rather, it is a movement of like-minded mages and their students who, living in a certain region, learn from and teach each other about Gates magic - and often claim to learn from entities beyond Cyve. What makes the Bone and Earth School a school, rather than merely an assemblage of gates mages with varying skills, is its approach to dealing with the entities that its practitioners come across. Many gates mages outside the Bone and Earth School regard summoned and encountered creatures as tools and nothing more - or if they have encountered more noteworthy entities, they are regarded with fear and suspicion. Certainly, what gates mages do in other realms is kept very secret outside the Bone and Earth School. But the Bone and Earth School publicly proclaims that its members have been in contact with other beings of great intelligence - some of whom are not hostile. This, however, is always accompanied by warnings that Gates magic is highly dangerous, and is best practised after studying with a qualified teacher. Even then, Gates Magic should be practised in remote areas with dead animals and bare earth - hence the Bone and Earth School's name. Ideally, mages in this school are not allowed to practise Gates Magic until they have mastered three arts - negation magic, wrestling, and various forms of persuasive communication (debate, oratory, law, persuasion, etc.). Negation magic is used in order to minimize problems if one's Gate's magic go wrong, and wrestling is used when controlling summoned creatures, but the most commonly used skill of Bone and Earth School mages, aside from Gates Magic, is negotiating with summoned creatures. Bone and Earth School mages strive, as much as possible, to understand, befriend, and learn from beings whom they summon. They write down what they learn about and from these beings (including weaknesses) in cryptic books which they explain to selected students whom they deem wise enough. The students who have fully understood a text about a given creature are deemed worthy of summoning the creature. It is not known how many creatures have been written about in books, and to further confuse the matter, different lineages of teachers may have different names and traditions about different entities. Bone and Earth School mages admit, if pressed, that they are secretive, but use this secretiveness in order to discourage unprepared gates mages from summoning dangerous creatures. They also spread stories, possibly true, about the terrible consequences of summoning creatures without being qualified gates mages. Some Bone and Earth School mages, who have attracted many followers, are alleged or allege themselves to be not fully human, but containing extra-cyvian ancestry. Bone and Earth School mages have a tense relationship with the central government, which respects but fears their powers and strange claims about their achievements Any thoughts, @Legate of Mineta?
  13. @Legate of Mineta: May I describe some ideas that I have for a gates school in Miya's empire? The Team would be welcome to use the school in the setting, and I am thinking that a possible adventure or random event might involve the PC's hearing Miya talking about the school. This, of course, could leave ambiguous how true her claims are.
  14. Ikaanim na araw ng Athonos. Nag-aral nang bahagyang ako dahil nagpulong ako ni Guro Masioti. I studied slightly because I met Teacher Massioti. Nagbasa nasa labas ng tanggapan siya ako tungkol sa salamangka ng tugtugin hanggang nagpulong si Guro Massioti akin. I read about magic of music [incantation] outside his office until Teasher Massioti met me. Nagtanong ako ni Guro Massioti tungkol kay Miya. I questioned Teacher Massioti about Miya. Dahil naglalaro nang mahusay si Binibini Hikari ng rimbal, ayaw si Guro Massioti magtanong ni Miya tungkol buhay siya. Since Young Lady Hikari plays skillfully rimbal, Teacher Massioti does not want to ask Miya about her life. Pero nagpakilala si Guro Massioti akin kay Guro Sido. But Teacher Massioti introduced me to Teacher Sido. Nagtanong nasa labas ng tanggapan ng Guro Sido si Guro Sido akin. Inside Teacher Sido's office Teacher Sido questioned me. "Taga-saan ang lolo ko? Ano ang pangalang mo?" "Whence is thy grandfather? What is thy name?" Nagtanong ako ni Guro Sido. I questioned Teacher Sido. "Nasa loob ni Academagia ilan mga tao puwede magsalita ng wika ko?" "In Academagia, how many people can speak my language?" "Limang tao." "Five people." Nagtanong si Guro Sido akin, pero nagtrabaho ako nasa labas ni Acadeamgia nasa loob ng bukid. Teacher Sido questioned me, but I worked outside the Academagia in a cultivated field. Nasa loob ni Academagia, sino ang nagsasalita ng wika ko? In Academagia, who speaks my language? Nasa loob ni Academagia, sino ang puwede magbasa ng wika ko? In Academagia, who can read my language?
  15. Ikaapat na araw ng Athonos Fifth Day of Athonos Itong umaga, hindi nagbukas ako pintuan ng kuwarto ko pero nagbukas si Miya pintuan ng kuwarto ko. This morning, I did not open my bedroom's door because Miya opened my bedroom's door. Nagtanong niya ko tungkol sa mga klase ko at nagtanong niya ko tungkol sa taga-saan ako. She questioned me about my classes and she questioned me about whence I am. Nagtanong ako siya tungkol sa kaibigan niya na si Zorzi at nagtanong ako siya tungkol sa isang susi ng Aklatan ng Mahabang Lilim. I questioned her about her friend Zorzi and I questioned her about one key to the Library of Long Shade. "Wala akong susi ng Aklatan ng Mahabang Lilim!" "I have no key to the Library of Long Shade!" Noon umalis niya ko. Then she left me. Nag-aaral ba si Miya wika ko? Is Miya studying my language? O nag-aral ba niya wika ko? Or did she study my language? Puwede magbasa ba niya itong bughaw na kuwarderno? Can she read this blue notebook? O puwede magbasa ba niya itim na mga kuwarderno ko? Or can she read my black notebooks? Magtatanong ako ng Guro Massioti tungkol sa binibini Hikari. I will question Teacher Massioti about Young Lady Hikari. Nag-aral nasa loob ng Aklatan ng Ipinagbibili ako ng salamangka ng tugtugin. I studied magic of music [incantation] in the Library for Sale [Venalicium].
  16. What is deep backstory? And how much lore is left to write?
  17. The game will have an expansion pack in October.
  18. @Legate of Mineta: How is the progress in writing about Y2's core courses?
  19. @Legate of Mineta: Some prominence should be given to the release of information about Y2's core courses.
  20. @Legate of Mineta: Why is the Venalicium called Venalicium? Venalicium is an adjective meaning "For Sale". So, is there an interesting story behind the name?
  21. Ikatlong araw ng Athonos Third Day of Athonos may ng kaibigan si Miya. Miya has a friend. Zorzi ang pangalan niya. Zorzi is his name. Maliit siya, pero mas matangkad siya kaysa sa akin. He is short, but he is taller than I am. Nag-aaral nasa loob ng Aklatan ng Mahabang Lilim sina Miya at Zorzi, pero nag-aral nasa labas ng Aklatan ng Mahabang Lilim kami. Miya and Zorzi study in the Library of Long Shade, but we all studied outside the Library of Long Shade. Nag-aral nasa loob ng Aklatan ng Ipinagbibili kami. We all studied in the Library for Sale [Venalicium]. Dahil naglaro nasa ibabaw (at nasa itaas) ng matangkad na hapag si Zorzi, nag-aral nasa ilalim ng matangkad na hapag si Miya at ako. Since Zorzi played upon (and above) the tall table, Miya and I studied below the tall table. Gusto mag-aral ko ang dalubhayupan, pero gusto ko ng mag-aral ng Eluminian. I like to study zoology, but I want to study Eluminian. Ayaw ko ng mag-aral ang palakasan, at puwede ayaw ko ng mag-aral ng Bassan. I do not like to study athletics, and I cannot want to study Bassan. Puwede ayaw ko ng mag-aral ang Bassan. I cannot like to study Bassan.
  22. @Legate of Mineta: 1. Is it legal to have a strong interest in anti-mastery and antigates magic or wards? 2. Would such an interest be regarded as suspicious? 3. How many schools of Gates Magic are in Oursouk?
  23. @Legate of Mineta: Any update about Y2?
