Is long-term magic having to fight with other problems beside that nature try to revert everything back to how it should be? (I.e. are the mutations like in Ars Magica)

Schwarzbart;

There aren't mutations as a result of most normal magics, but they can occur when certain Phemes or Spells. It isn't common, but is dreaded.

Will the Pheme and Spell that have a risk of mutating the target be thought during the 5 years in Academagia?

1. Are microscopes known?

2. Would students who made inquiries about how useful gates magic was in exploring the world get in trouble?

3. Were any Academagia students not of the official religion of the Empire of Man ever punished for their faith?

4. Did Academagia students not of the official religion of the Empire of Man only come from Saisyne and Oursouk (aside from Miya), or did any come from other lands, such as Valvili?

5. Have religious scriptures been censored to remove references to New Gods and saints using Gates and Mastery?

1) That is a good question- I think no, but there are advanced optics, especially for telescopes.

2) Yes. :)

3) Rarely, but yes.

4) They have come from many lands.

5) Not censored, but emphasized less, perhaps.

1) Weather play a active roll in year 2 and not just a storytelling one as it is in year 1?

2) Will the actual weather in year 2 take influence on what options you have in adventures/events?

3) Will the actual weather in year 2 change the schedule of club activities?

4) Will the current weather prevent some event to be active at the day? (I.e. during a hailstorm it would be strange to have an event that assume the player take a walk trough a park)

5) How, if at all, does one convert to the New Gods? Say that a student from some far off place with no real religion to speak of comes to the Academagia and wishes to convert, what's needed/what happens/etc.?

6) Is there a fancy(/ier) term for the New Gods religion, or is it just "(worship of) the New Gods"?

S;

1) Yes. :)

2) It can be set up that way, but by and large no.

3) No, although it can be set up that way.

4) Yes.

M;

5 & 6, let me see what the Team wants to say here. :)

Since people tend to either stay at Contu's school until either they go broke or feel they have learned all they can, I was wondering how long some of those longer stays have been?

Rarely means it's possible that some have stayed longer. What's the record? :) Was said person a slow learner? Did they go into debt?

1) Is the tuition of Contu's school raise each year you stay or is it just the first year that have a big discount?

2) If it isn't the first year you visit Contu's school the reason for the discount in year 1 what is the reason of this discount then? (Maybe its a discount for the students in their first year in Academagia?)

1. How common are gangs such as the Southside Pitts in Mineta?

2. Does the Thieves' Guild recruit from such gangs? did it arise from such a gang?

3. Just to confirm, the Thieves' Guild is illegal, right? the game is not going the Terry Pratchett route, right (though if it were to, this would be all right)? I have questions that I would like to ask about the Thieves Guild and crime in Mineta later once I know whether it is illegal.

Rhialto;

1) All too common, especially in the lower City.

2) You'd have to ask the Thieves' Guild. :)

3) Illegal!

1. Is there any movement that wants to ban theatre in Auncesay?

2. Does the Thieves Guild bribe the Minetan watch? What about the Legate of Mineta?

Rhi;

1) In an Auncesay? No, but of course political theater treads a fine line.

2) You'll have to ask them. :)

1. Are mages ever discriminated against by other mages because of their familiars (excluding very difficult to handle familiars, such as the elephant)?

2. Are there or have there been clubs for mages with, say, dog familiars, at academagia or elsewhere?

3. Has any scholar done any analysis of mages to determine common traits about familiars and their mages?

Rhialto;

1) No, not really- but very difficult familiars can be exception.

2) Pet specific? Not as far as I know.

3) There has been a lot of research in this area, but as with most research related to Familiars, it's inconclusive.

How bad can islandquakes get? How often do they happen? Does architecture factor it in or do most people just plan to rebuild if it happens? When was the last notable one in Mineta?

Free;

They can be devastating, but most that occur are mild and uncommon overall. Public buildings, and those of wealthier families, are intended to last- otherwise, most people tend to rebuild.

I'll have to direct you to the Lores for the last part. :)
