A few in game questions

Recommended Posts

Last questions of the day. How competitive is Caspar when it comes to art? Lets say if the opposing artist has a tremendous problem with his enchantments of people in portraits. Or does Caspar follow the warts and all mentality?

S;

That is getting towards a few older, defunct, Pillars, but yes- something similar existed for drawing, not necessarily geometric.

Wait. There are multiple defunct pillars? May we have details about them?

Also, when summoning creatures through Gates Magic, are circles of phemes drawn upon the ground in order to protect against summoned creatures or confine summoned creatures possible?

2) Is it legal to research old but no longer practiced magic "pillars" as long they not belong to mastery or gate magic?

I expect much like what happened to orthography, the old pillars were simply absorbed into other fields. They just didn't have the benefit of having wealthy backers to keep teaching the old ways like Aranaz does.

Free;

Shockingly cynical! :)

Rhi;

Some in game sources may hint at them.

Circles of Phemes weren't drawn, but binding Spells, often in the form of Enchantments, would be drawn.

Schwarzbart;

Yes.

You may say I am cynical, but you did not say that I was incorrect, either... ;)

1) With the history focus of Aranaz is it one of the possible topics for the last year project to research why a pillar did fall out of favor and what it still can offer for a modern mage? 

2) Although it is typical for Vernin to craft an object for the last year is it also accepted to put up an paper with research of a specific enchanting / artifice method , even if it is from pillar that no longer is in use?

3) Is the project for the last year chosen freely by the student or is the mentoring mage select it for the student? 

4) Because Pheme are one of the important part in modern magic, where there last year projects that focus on a specific / or group of similar pheme in the past and if so in what college(s)?

1) Yes, it could. :)

2) It would atypical, but if it was practical...

3) It's collaborative.

4) Usually, that kind of finer research isn't a topic for the last year, but it's happened in all Colleges.

Rhi;

It's possible, but usually lawyers have more experience, in other fields, which recommends them to the courts. Merchants, philosophers, authors, administrators and the nobility tend to form the pool.

@Legate of Mineta: Would there be considerable alarm in Mineta if a person were to be found writing texts about the joy of being a dragon (akin to in the game Golden Treasure)?

@Legate of Mineta: Is there a practise of combining the celebrations associated with the Festival of the Pixies with those of the Dance of Fools, leading to a 24-hour period with costumed pranksters and lovers?

1) Although we probably see it in year 2 but playing trough Chinese Parents make me wonder how extrem is the pressure the parents build up for their children to get good grades?

2) Are some hits with a stick still an accepted punishment for children that not behave as expected (i.e. because their grades are to bad)?
