  1. I ask because in two different games that I have started with characters with identical attribute scores (charm 1) have been very different in their ability to befriend collegemates - different students, both in same college as PC.
  2. The two members I wanted for my clique are already in different ones (and I'm in the second week, so it looks like I really have to start Befriending as the very first action), and I don't want to join their clique (this happened after Befriending one of them). Is there way to make them join mine or do I have to restart or pick different people?
  3. Should you first only focus on Compete and doing the Mentor adventure, or should you train/study as well? How can you effectively Befriend people? Right now it doesn't ever work for me and I raised my Befriend to 1 by raising its three skills to one. Is it supposed to be higher? The relationship was 2 with the wanted friend (they actually raised it by 1 using and action). Are there any actions I can learn to raise relationships or make it easier besides Befriend? Gossip is also purple, is there any point to raising it instead of the Befriend skill? Should I focus on raising all of the School Survival skills, so I get new abilities/skills from them? The guides I read mentioned focusing on raising your stats and doing the Oan quest, but I noticed if you don't Compete a lot from the start in Godina for example, you won't get the rewards since you need to pull the weight by yourself. RIght now I'm doing my first Godina run (again, last time I played 2 months or so, now I came back to the game and decided to restart), should I use all of my actions on Compete and Oan adventures first? Or is it good to mix them up with other things as well? I'm playing as an adventurer/scholar, so I have the libarary background, so I'm using Manatele when raising my subskills. But I'm on week 2 and I just don't know if I'm missing out on something how to get people into your clique (like some skill you're supposed to get from School Survival or something else to get rel points and raise Befriend etc)., and if I should correspond more. Right now I raised to 12, but I haven't received any money although it's supposed to be biweekly when the third week hit. Unless you get the money but the game doesn't tell you in the end of the day report. How would you suggest to play the game to feel like you're not missing out on stuff (eg. adventures, I feel like on my previous run some actually disappeared! Are there any time-limited adventures?). How much should you train/study, do adventures, correspond/compete? By week 3 I already won the 2 merit awards, but if I didn't compete more, then another house would win merit 3, so it seems like I should focus on that. How many merit awards are there and when are they awarded? By the way, the offline manual doesn't show which colours are which difficulties, so I have to google them as the game doesn't tell you either - if there's another patch, would it be possible to put it inside Gerta's letters? Also how can you regain Vitality and Stress besides resting and using actions that reduce Stress? Right now it seems like I can only rest to regain HP. Thank you! Edit: Btw, I have all my attributs at 2, is that good or should've I gone with 3? I didn't find any use for my familar on my first run (2-4 months of ingame playtime) so I went with Pamela to get 1 more point.
  4. I tried to befriend someone from the same college at friendship level 2 and failed. What is the ideal friendship level, is that too low or was it a bad roll? What do you do to get friends, do you use gossip several times? What's the normal procedure, since the game isn't that clear and I'm not sure how high are you supposed to raise it with gossip and then use befriend.
  5. I have been investigating familiars. I learned about the Play action, as well as the Explore with Familiar action. So I resolved to investigate how they worked. This involved the following: I reloaded an autosave for my most socially adept character, whose familiar was Mr. Pebbles. This character had a straight 10 in the befriend skill. Then, during Kapsus, I had my character maximize the familiar kinship subskill, after which that character used the play and explore with familiar actions. The familiar indeed became more skilled, and the bond increased. However, the following problematic issues I noticed. 1. Despite all notices in the selection menu showing green (guaranteed success), there were times when the day's log of events showed no gain in any skill or skill step by the familiar. 2. Even when the bond was 5 and the familiar's skill in a given subskill was 4, my character's character sheet revealed no bonus provided to that character from the familiar's skill.
  6. Ok, I have a medium sized clique. Me Silke N Emilia P Zoe M Isabel G Vuillaume E Vuillaume got befriended by someone else in the click (or she befriended me) but I added the rest. In another playthrough I added Milena di M to this same clique (but with Vincent E instead of Vuillaume) and Zoe, Isabel and Vincent immediately left and formed thier own clique. On my current playthrough I have maxed out all my studies and while "Use Notes" is still nice for its 2 step skill advancement, I wouldnt mind losing Zoe (or Isabel, as Im rich now from all the wrestling) for Milenas Tutoring ability. I had to demean the heck outta her Clique but I finally got her out of it. When I then befriended her it said I was succesful and that I had gained the use of her Clique ability, but she was neither listed as being in my clique, or showing that she was in any clique on her profile. Also I did not have the option to use her Tutoring services. So my question is, what gives? Can someone be befriended and yet not join your Clique? By the way Im back playing after 2 years I think and the game is GREAT!!! Keep up the good work.
