It is named for King Durand, who was the master of the Rimerta, now Meril. Over time, this college has become associated with the earth, agriculture, nature, and the powers of denial against Draconic magic.

Note: Aranaz and Durand is rival. --------------------------------- Godina --------------------------------- Godina college was one of the last colleges entered at the Academy. Its namesake, King Godina, was renowned for the depth of his treasury, the endurance of his warriors, and his famed battle-rage. Today, this college is known for its powerful incantations, quick abilities at creation, and their penchant for destruction. "In years past, College Godina raised up more war-mages than most, and even today its focus on the magic of Incantation attracts students with an eye for adventure. That said, Incantation is also the magic of creation; the college encourages serious research as well as dramatic displays of power."

"Real man can dodge any spells, and real man can take a hundred spells without falling!" --------------------------------- Hedi --------------------------------- Hedi College, located next to the Vasastra Campanile, is named for Queen Hedi of Tiljat, justly famed for her powers of diplomacy. During the southern revolts, she was able to play the Dragons and their Men against one another long enough to keep her realm free, before the victorious armies of the West drove the last of the wyrms from her lands. This college is known for its secret glamours, illusions and enchanters. "Natural home for diplomats and charmers, emphasizing wordplay as well as studies of Glamour.

King Morvidus came unexpectedly to Durand's fleet from the untamed north, with many hundreds of hardy men and their beasts at their side. This college is known for its affinity with familiars, nature and friendship. "The center of the Academagia’s Revision studies, but most of its students love it more for its bonds with the animal kingdoms.

His wealth was in the crafters of his people, whose matchless weapons could pierce even the scales of the most dreadful dragons. This college is known for its artificers, mercantile acumen and resourcefulness. "Home of most of the Academy’s artists and Enchanters: a college of refinement, subtlety, passion, and very hard work.

Note: Vernin students enjoy competing for Merit (collage point), so this collage have higher chance for winning merit reward. Note 2: Rival with Morvidus (bullies), so be careful in year 2-5 where rivalry really sparks.
  7. The Diviner ran into trouble.
  8. Happy new year! Now to start the year off by bringing bad news to the kickstater thread.
  9. Pls' no bully: Survived one hostile each by Joana and Philippe without hospitalization within the same week. Terrible 'Accident': Stay in hospital for one week straight.
  10. I am waiting for y3 already.
  11. The discounted price is usually about the same price that backer paid anyway, and the extra cost is usually from the publisher fee and stuff. They might get a bit more profit in the long term by charging it higher for a longer period, but the game has already made back its cost thanks to kickstarter, and getting massive boost of money from discount sales will help a lot with quickly funding the next project. It's not like you can't keep doing discount special for the next 50 years, look at the current summer Steam Sales. Looking long term again, more faster funding to develop and pump out games faster could be better than keeping a few old game at higher prices while developing slowly.
  12. You are making an extreme example there. If a family can't afford all three things you listed, then they should satisfy for government aid programs and even domestic/foreign aid program like One Laptop per Child. To address the last two points, even in the USA, 1 in 4 kids still grow up Illiterate, which can lead to the first three extreme condition you mentioned. If every country's education system is working and successful as intended, we probably won't need this kickstarter in the first place.
  13. To anyone that have internet to access it online for free on their pc. The 1 mil goal also include providing all of them for free to 1500 school that can't afford it because school licensing fee works differently at a subscription bases or something.
  14. Not a gaming kickstarter, but this seems to be the biggest thing on Kickstarter now/soon. The Most Worthy Kickstarter
  15. I tried the newest version on my XP and it's working fine.
  16. It would have a deep meaning with a comma: "One must have at lease, a middling feel for the art."
  17. Glamour for one-man stage play. Conjure a dozen illusion dancers and illusional orchestra. Good graces with the rich might need Aesthetics, a couple of choice social skill (Flattery, Conversation, Gossip, etc.) , Bureaucracy, Civil, Composure, Confidence, Cosmetics, Court Fashion, Court Hairstyle, Famous Songs, Famous Poetry, Famous Prose, Perfumes, Politics. You can skip court and law/politic stuff if you don't care about fame. Although the richest people usually hang around court events.
  18. In a programmer's viewpoint, letting the program check for every possibility so that the end product will be absolutely bug-free (beside design bug) and maximum compatibility by sacrificing a few hours every time is better than releasing a product that might have bugs in it. In the latter case, the programmer would spent the same amount of hours debugging it after the player reports it. The prior saves more (programmers') time and players don't have to suffer through any logic-based bugs. It guarantee a working product from start to end because it runs through what I assume is running every single possible combination of actions on every possible target and objects. It's not the most effective way to do it, but making 'selective' checking/testing on a complex game is hard and not perfect, which will still result in the latter case that I mentioned.
  19. What if DLC 16 is a glamour lore?
  20. Life is a mere dream, a fleeting shadow on a cloudy day. DLC 16 is a mere illusion of the mind, an invisible particle of magic dust.
  21. You go Dragon Ball Z.
  22. "The school is on fire! Run!" "Nope, I must help my proffessor sort all these books on the burning shelf. " "THE FIRE WILL KILL YOU!" "Yes, but I cannot skip this extra mandatory tutoring session. Think about my gradessss."
  23. Happy Ne-AHHHHHHH!
  24. Happy Holidays.
