Off-Hand, I can think of three good students and three bad students. The Good: 1. Uliva Valaresso: She is already interested in a heavily restricted, often illegal, field of study, and has revealed an interest in serpent-breeding. I can easily imagine her thrilling at the prospect of learning gates magic from the PC, since this would allow her herpetology to be done more easily. 2. Sima Venesico: She seems to have her own discreet interest in illegal magics (gates possibly, mastery probably), and is used to being secretive for other reasons. The downside is that she can be very impulsive in an attention-getting way. 3. Aaran Ledale: His studies of Mastery are even more subtle than Sima's are, and his knowledge of Mineta's seamier side (and associated locations) would be useful in concealing experiments with Gates Magic. The downside is his curse of unluck to other people - but that applies to all of his friends and love-interests. The Bad: 1. Grainne Inneith: This girl loves to spread rumours that she presents as true. She would probably be thrilled about spreading rumours about a gates mage among the students. 2. Reitz von Lutersee: This student's adventure reveals him to be a traitor, so he would probably betray a gates mage PC easily - especially for a reward. 3. Zoe Melis: She needs money and is socially isolated - I am sure that exposing a gates mage would allow her to gain money and social power easily.
I have only come upon one student adventure that I disliked - that with Malacresta. The other student adventures that I have played at least give the students ways to do something, even if the PC must be involved (otherwise there would be no story!) But Malacresta's adventure has him being sick in the infirmary all the time with the PC's trying to help him. Malacresta's vaunted astrological knowledge barely makes an appearance. Tacito's adventure is also a disappointment, being so much more about Ausdauer Mollers and her mysterious relative. Does anyone else want to share a least favorite student adventure?
I have a question about relationships. I understand that the student adventures have sequels in Y2. But will there be other opportunities to befriend students and engage in adventures with them during Y2? Will these adventures be the Y2 sequel adventures, or other adventures or even, in certain cases, Y1 adventures?
