  1. @Legate of Mineta: Are wargames that allow people to simulate gates magic or mastery magic illegal? I ask because a lot of RPGs in real life have options for what on Cyve would be Gates magic.
  2. @Legate of Mineta: Any updates in Y2's progress?
  3. Would you mind citing an example? I am curious.
  4. A few days ago, I was thinking about the name Isabeau and the Academagia character with that name (because really, her back-story is so interesting - I wish that the Team would release more characters' backstories - such as Prudence Cossins's). But then, a thought occurred to me. I know about another Isabeau - a 15th century girl whom the French Poet/university student Francois Villon was with when he got into his first (and fatal to another) brush with the law. At first, I thought this to be a strange coincidence and nothing more. But then, the more I thought about it, the more similarities I saw between Academagia's Isabeau and Villon's Isabeau. Both are associated with university students but are not noted as learned or scholarly themselves. Both are in close connection with thieves but not known to be thieves themselves (although in Miss Glorieux's case, it seems to be due to her skills and charm rather than lack of thieving). Both are associated with stories of mysterious fathers and elevation from low social status through education (Isabeau Glorieux's aristocratic father who finances her studies and Villon's foster-father who financed his university studies). Finally, it is, I think, interesting that Isabeau Glorieux is associated with Hedi College (diplomacy and skilled composition) just like the 15th century's Isabeau's Villon was a skilled poet. These connections, I admit, are not nearly as strong as were found with Isabeau's fellow Hedi student Sima, but they are interesting. @Legate of Mineta, was the team aware of this name-related association when it named the amateur thief Isabeau?
  5. @Legate of Mineta: Any update in Y2's progress?
  6. Well, the first post in this thread is not my you, but by @Nyaa, so I prefer to think that you are right.
  7. Well then, the first page of this thread is wrong when it says that a year has 360 days.
  8. @Legate of Mineta: Does the year still have only 360 days in Academagia? And are they 24-hour days, or are they a few minutes longer on average so that the year is the same as on Earth? Furthermore, are any NPCs in Y1 family members of party members in your RPG?
  9. @Legate of Mineta: I am wondering: would it be possible for a mage, in casting a gates teleportation spell, to accidentally teleport her familiar to one random location and herself to another random location?
  10. @Legate of Mineta: Thanks for the answer. Any update about what a typical service to Iudocia would be like?
  11. @Legate of Mineta: Would I be right in thinking that Miss von Kiep's adventure involved her engaging in criminal conduct carrying the death penalty? Or at least getting the PC to do such?
  12. Could I create an adventure/scene with such a book as a possible reward, or would this be prohibited?
  13. @Legate of Mineta: I was wondering if Y2 might include books that would have the in-game benefit of allowing a character to research a topic and train in the topic. This would also allow characters to research over the summer holidays.
  14. @Legate of Mineta: Inspired by a recent religious debate that I had on another forum (yes, I have other hobbies), I wonder: has any dialectic professor or student during Academagia's history gotten in trouble for espousing a heresy during an assignment?
  15. I could promise to ask no questions.
  16. I could easily edit the copies that I would see and send copies to the Team, sparing them this labour.
  17. @Legate of Mineta: I would be willing to pay for access to copies of the Team's world-building documents.
  18. I hope that such a publication could be made.
  19. @Legate of Mineta: What form does a religious service take in Mineta? Is there a reading from scripture followed by a sermon and prayers? Or is there, for example, the presentation of a cult image for praise, anointing, and veneration? I ask because I am planning a Y2 adventure at a service in the Temple of Iudocia, but want to be accurate to the lore.
  20. What does this mean? Do you like my suggestions?
  21. @Legate of Mineta: Although I would hardly presume to know how the romance paths for all of the characters will develop, I have the following ideas for the following characters' paths: 1. Isabeau Glorieaux: I hope that one aspect might be her mother's fears that the male PC might be seeing her daughter as a fling (rather as I presume she was for Isabeau's father). 2. Beatrix von Wetgen: Addressing the two hidden elephants in her character: that she is a duke's only daughter who never mentions this (why?!) and that she keeps wondering into the Imperial reserve with permission. 3. Zoe Melis: Where her need for money ends, and why she needs the money. 4. Sima Venesico: What is her deal? All of it: her family, her use of hypnosis, her sales to collectors, and her power over Philippe. And that is not even considering the Triplets! 5. Tabin Furenzti: I am very creeped out by his interest in mind-controlling plants - and hope that there can be a scene in which he promises a female PC never to use them against her. If any of these suggestions are too strange or mature for how Academagia will develop in later years, I hope that you will forgive me for writing them.
  22. @Legate of Mineta: In order to allow the player to use tongs (and another item, the poker), a new patch for Y1 should add an equipment slot called "Forge / Workstation Materials: Tools", because the tongs and the poker belong to this category. Would this be possible?
  23. @Legate of Mineta: A strange question, perhaps, but are Tafl games played in the Empire of Man?
