    A few in game questions

    Yep, seconding the generalist. It's called that or Universal Magic for any wizard (in D&D) that hasn't gotten a domain. There was also a Master Generalist as a Prc somewhere...There is also an Elf Generalist class...in Races of the Wild I think. Work fast enough in Academagia and you can put copyright on it. Be the only generalist mage around. Or start your own school.

    Mikka's Modding Project!

    Man, I stand by what I said earlier in this thread. I really like Aaran. And his dog is the best thing ever. He is the new, permanent addition to the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Now to talk more to Louise.

    DLC 16: The New and the Returned

    I squealed. Also, I think that Mr Pebbles is the most beautiful, funny rock I have ever seen and that I'm keeping it. Talking rock, you guys! Mr Pebbles and Muffin Man are the PERFECT friends for my talking book, who is very glumy. Thank you for the hard work, it's an immense and satisfying update. And congrats to Mikka to the great characters.

    DLC 16 Bugs

    Man, so many things happen in my absence. Alright, Random Event Cante, I helped the little bastard and he got mad at me. Specifically, I took the Brew exit, succeeded and got a -1 relationship. So I got mad at him and unleashed Diavesque. Awesome Community 31 is written all in red text. Pep Rally 02 has an Exit 2 instead of text. And when Cyrus uses Show off the text is "Relationship has been decreased by decreased by ...." and "increased by increased by" Also, I'm not sure if this is a bug on my part, the devs, a question or a suggestion. When I read the lore on Serenity I half expected to read "I am a leaf on the wind...Watch how I soar". And it wasn't there. I got sad.

    Second Game for 2014?!

    All we need is a Blacksheep Royal Descendant who casually and easily dispatches family so that they can eventually take the throne! ...As a sidenote, is anyone watching Albert? Like...say, the Legate, the Captain..some form of authority figure? No? ...Please?

    Second Game for 2014?!

    Leoshi...do you really want to use that on Grandma? Also, you'd be the first one they'd point fingers at. Make it more subtle than that. At the very least make the slippers bite her fingers from time to time.
  7. It's true that the main one with the Legate is a more secure way to get his 'friendship' and has added perks as a follow-up but as far as 'creating an exploitable resource' in him, you can find that out just by getting close the usual way (and find out some of his secrets). Besides we have no idea how it will branch later. He is at the core of it all so sooner or later, you might have to make a choice later on. A choice he might remember and appreciate if the Captain's interest in him is any show of his involvement. So, like I said, different characters, different paths. And albert? Do the pirate adventure. Was the first one I did because pirates. Though I still don't know how to trigger the piratey version for Cirillo's adventure, I can tell you that Asad the Lion is very cool.
  8. I think the Legate's might be the more appropriate one for those who are more interested in their academic work and are more interested in creating a relationship with the Legate. I rarely do it because, compared to the others, you can establish a comparable relationship with him even outside the main event (such as with Carnage at the Fields). The triplets might be more for an investigative PC, but I doubt it counts as the most successful. You don't create relationships with adults other than suspicion...after all, the Legate might be interested in checking out the four who had interfered, no? Flood or no flood, things still happen, and you don't get the whole story. I don't trust the students either. All three are hiding stuff. Considering the Legate and Ilaro are frienemies, I don't think there would be too many repercussions, but again, I think the Legate would definitely keep an eye on you. The pirates, I think, will have larger repercussions in the Asad the Lion part. In truth, both the Captain's and the Pirates seem less interesting...until you look at the information you gather. This is why the Captain's is my favourite: doing this adventure and Cirillo's, you can learn what the Legate did and the Captain's suspicions. You also get to meet the pirates and see that they're involved. You gain the favour of a powerful man whose opinion matters for the Minetan commoners. In the Pirates, you also learn about what the Legate might be into, and can gain much more from the Underworld. I suppose I'm thinking that with the Pirate and Captain, you gain resources outside of the school, useful for anyone who either wants to cover all the bases, or wants to become something other than a mage. The Legate is a definite archmage - simile, path. Ilaro is the opposite of the Legate, more of a rogue mage. The triplets are the Wild Card, but the question is, can you trust them? Either and all offer something that I think is pretty equal in resources and rewards, but there are different enough to only appeal to certain characters and what they want to do later on.

    The Obligatory Happy ***** holiday thread!

    Happy Holidays, guys! May your wishes and hopes involve Academagia 2. I know mine will.

    Neah, not always so strange. I've played over a dozen new games in different colleges and Phillipe always brings our relationship to 3+ in the first month. Joana follows usually by mid-year. Who knows why? Might be plotting something. But seeing the rivalry between Aranaz and Durand and Emilia's part in it, it wouldn't make sense to do her adventure. If you make an Aranaz character though...

    A few in game questions

    Replayed Captain's adventure...again. Will we ever get a shot at that staircase? It sounds wonderful to slide off... What sort of authority does the Captain have in places other than Mineta? Treated like a king, foreign ambassador? Dignitary? What is the general response for a visiting foreign power? Since there are no emperors/kings outside of Auncesay? And off-topic since I have no idea where to post this. Free Fallouts for all at GOG. All three old-school games are free until the 14th. Get it now, since after this year, GOG won't have the rights to sell it anymore. Just refresh until you can get it, otherwise works fine.

    Are you in college Durand? You can't do her adventure if you are, no matter the relationship (in this case, you need 4+)

    As a staunch supporter of Godina, I approve! Professor Bessa for Regent!

    DLC 15 Bugs

    So something odd happened. Awesome Community Event 05, I ...ended up encouraging myself to gamble. Somewhat. Maybe. Once you recover from your shock, you let your eyes follow the curve of your elbow, the hand gripping it, up along the arm and straight into the face of [Character]Character/High Relationship/Random Character (Default)/Character (Default). Recognizing [Character]Character/High Relationship/Random Character (Default)/Character (Default), you relax. And it ended up with my character's name. Is this a once in a lifetime thing? Do I have a clone? A multiple personality disorder forcing me to spend my cash? No idea, but I won some pims, so...

    A few in game questions

    Free, Well, you could just lower the relationship with him drastically, but he might take a couple of your clique with him, so make sure your relationship with them is better than his with the others. Still, easier to restart. What did IE and D&D games in general taught us? Save often and early and in different slots. I have at least 30 saves for each game. It's horrible. I think I'm addicted to saving. Legate, I was hoping that you guys wouldn't have to do the work, but such an option would be welcome. Maybe just be the only one who can decide if you can make a character fail...? Kind of like Skyrim's final blows on companions. I would assume that at least some would want Phillipe out. I wouldn't know how easy that would be to make, since I have no idea of the engine, but I hope it's easy. Do we have some sort of graduation party or something at the end of the each year?
