A few in game questions

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering how easy forbidden magic is to hide, if no mastered persons or any direct effects of the spells are discovered is it still somehow possible to detect if a mage has used minor mastery/gates spells recently?

 

Will it somehow taint your aura or will actual effects need to be discovered to detect lawbreakers?

So if i'd used gates magic within the last month but wasn't currently using any and whatever I'd used it on was never found I could still be detected if a professor decides to check for it just to be sure?

The legate has said that the duration of the aura depends on the complexity of the spell.

Dreamweaver;

 

Correct. And as Freespace notes, if the magic is very simple, it will fade faster. Note that exceptionally skilled Negation mages can still detect usage, sometimes even years in the past, but that kind of talent is very rare. And expensive. :)

Ok, are there any techniques that can hide such an aura or perhaps shorten the duration?

 

Otherwise if one of all the academagia gates students (not sure how many that is, but at least more than yourself if you choose that path) messes up and makes something obviously gate-derived the professors could just try a detection spell on each student in turn and catch all.

 

Maybe a skilled mage might use some trick to evade detection if the inspector isn't truly exceptional himself?

Oh legate! :rolleyes:

 

Whatever shall we do with you and your secret-mongering ways?

 

Nyaa;

Yes, it's possible to remove, alter or even transfer it (all quite difficult and time consuming), although you won't find such teachings in the normal course curricula...smile.gif

I think schwarzbart was referring to really advanced classes. (for second years anyway)

Extra Class questions for year 2

1) With the possibility that player can have 8 class will this 2 extra class take then a extra time slot or also just the 2 as so fare in year 1?

- Regent's Relationship 10 & High Marks in all Classes

 

- 3 Class Instructors Relationships 10 & High Marks in all Classes

 

- Parental Permission (you can get this during Vacation) & High Marks in all Classes

2) So a Avila Student have to get 10 with professor Badcrumble or is any Regent i.e. Polisena Briardi fine?

3) Will Relationship 10 with the Legate also enough?

There is more than 3 time slots now? Otherwise getting another class would seem a bad idea.

 

Will there be a time slot for each class already? Or will it be one time slot for 3 classes like now and then an entire time slot for just one extra class?

1) So for the 6 normal class 3 class take together 1 time slot while each of the 2 possible extra class will take its own timeslot? That's really bad :(

2) Will there spells that let us keep working for some days nonstop?

 

@Dreamweaver Right now we have 5 timeslot per day but 2 not usable by the player.

This extra 2 will be opened in year 2 with the downside that you have to keep in mind a few days without sleep are bad for your.

Dream & Schwarzbart;

 

It is generally a really difficult thing to take more than the 6 Classes, but the option is there if you want it. There are extra Action Slots, but...they are special. You'll see.

 

Still 2 time slots during the day, but the extra Classes each cost 1 time slot.

 

"Will there spells that let us keep working for some days nonstop?"

 

Maybe. :)

I want to learn time magic to handle all the things I would like to do in just 1 day.

A dimension where the time runs faster would also enough if I could set up a small room there to sleep and learn ;) (I don't care that this means I would have to use Gate magic)

I assume extra classes will be just one more class taken from what's available for the six primary classes; then will extra classes only be some days in the week? Otherwise I don't understand how it'd take 1/3 of a time slot normally but a full slot if it happens to be an extra one.

Do the year 2 engine allow effects that have temporary expansions to the timeslots a student have available at a day?

If so will the modtool allow us to use this?

 

Edit: Under what skill would prophetic dreams fall?

Dreamweaver;

 

It's directed Study with an Instructor, that's why you need the approval of the Regent.

 

Schwarzbart;

 

Not precisely, no.

 

Prophetic Dreams...that is a good question. Maybe a hybrid of Astrology and Glamour? I'm not sure.
