@Legate of Mineta: Would there be any legal consequences, academic consequences, or suspicion if a student at Academagia were found with an artifact specifically designed to detect gates and/or mastery?

I suppose it depends on the item's sensitivity to Gates and Mastery. Are you looking for detecting the type of magic the average underground student would use, or are you looking for something that can even detect the use of an advanced Gates pheme that was worked into an otherwise harmless tapestry?

 

Which leads me to another question. Legate. Can a pheme be written in it's orthographic representation without inducing any magic? I ask because I would like to know if one did write down every Mastery and Gates pheme on paper, it would be nice to know whether that automatically would make it trigger detection spells, even if no Gates or Mastery spells were cast.

That make me wonder if the Tapestry in the palace use incomplete Pheme or use some other way to suppress the possible magic resulting from them?

Schwarzbart;

It is possible to Negate magic, and display the Phemes this way. Obviously, more difficult and expensive. ;)

@Legate of Mineta: 1. Have tapestries dealing with gates and/or mastery at Academagia been destroyed in order to prevent people from learning about these pillars of magic through the tapestries?

2. For an adventure that I am planning on finally writing the ending for, I wonder: would it be possible to have a magical artifact that, through astrology magic, keeps a record of where and when it was used?

Rhi;

1) Many artifacts were destroyed as a result of the Ban, but not all entirely.

2) Yes, it's possible.

I kind of suspected because such a change in law not happen from one day to the next that most of the learning material that could easy be moved was collected and moved to a Forbidden Library even if no one would mention it in the public history. Also I suspect that many of the gate / mastery related items where buried instead of transporting them trough the city to thrown them over the border of the island.

1) Is it known if some magical items have found intact in a matter fountain (or haw it is called)

Wasn't it pretty much confirmed that scores of stuff vanished from Kazus and Icanicix right after the bans fell, but before the government could send the book-burning crew?

Wellspring, and IIRC nothing comes out of a wellspring anywhere close to "intact".

Recognizable, perhaps.....

Did the wellsprings form immediately after the exile? Or did they appear after the islands stabilized? If an island is moved, does the wellspring move with it?

From Icanicix yeah but I don't remember any mention of Kazus... How damn here's my nosebleed going on again. :P

Many items did disappear, yes...;)

Regarding the Wellsprings, they seemed to have appeared coincident with the Exile. The reappearance of items in the Wellspring almost always alters them, but from time to time there have been examples of an entirely unaltered item (or, if it is altered, they are unable to tell.)

@Legate of Mineta: 1. Is the study of Wellsprings restricted because of any suspicion that they may involve gates magic? Or at least, were they studied more intently when gates magic was legal?

2. is Cimone a city or region in Cassesta?

So, I've always been bad with names. Can you ask the team what the name of that death world that Valentino visited to hunt slobins might be? If possible, can you give us insight on how other dimensions might be classified? I'm sure some death worlds must be more dangerous than others...

Rhi;

1) It certainly is prohibited- why is another concern.

2) It is a region.

Free;

I'll ask, sure!

Somehow the recent topic make me wonder how many gate and mastery "library" are hidden, maybe even in plain sight, given the habit to ban and unban both school of magic over the centuries.

I am very curious about the library of the Forbidden in that regard. While it is not something that we'll get an answer to until future years, I know there's a lot more to it than meets the eye.

2) Can you tell us what year 3 have as core classes this year? I wonder what Oan would tell our chars that she learn or have to do for the academy beside her Incantation studies.

S;

Now *that's* an interesting question. I'll pose it, and see what they say!

Rhi;

It has its uses for both. Negation can eliminate the toxicity...over the Duration, of course...:)

So, if you negate a poison, it's safe for the duration? Makes sense, but I have a bad feeling about idiots ingesting negated mercury now. That can't end well...

1. Are there any regional religious festivals/cults of saints in the Empire of Man?

2. Would I be correct in thinking that the Alesfans are trying to bring their religion more in line with what is practiced in Mineta?

3. Have regional religious festivals/cults of saints in the Empire of Man ever been suppressed/are they officially condemned or mistrusted by Minetan ecclesiastical authorities?
