A few in game questions

Recommended Posts

If someone were to fall and break their neck right in front of a Revision mage with wand in hand, how hard would it be for the mage to undo that whole "broken neck" bit?

"If the question is, could the person be revived when clinical death happened only a fraction of a second before?  Yes, but it's very hard, and it requires more and different phemes than just a regular healing spell, because you have to know exactly what needs to be Revised."

Hmm...noted. How commonly known/taught are these different Phemes? Senior student textbook material, or do you have to work your way up through a relevant guild's ranks just to maybe, possibly, potentially one day gaze upon them?

@Legate of Mineta: Are there reliable records of any human mage being able to turn into a dragon (leaving aside the action's legality)?

I personal think humans would consider such a person to be always was a dragon who just disguised him self as human.

Rhi;

First, [Redacted].

Second:

"Reliable?  No.  Not least because it's believed that to take draconic form is to surrender yourself into the power of the dragons.  They sense you, can control you, and can remake you according to their whims.

Mind you, that means that there are probably dragon cultists who aspire to it."

@Legate of Mineta: 1. Are there any military (that is, not for civilian use) wargame rule books that deal with gates magic? I would think that such would be useful given Oursouki power.

2. Is there any equivalent to Madagascar?

Is Oriabel obsessed with every kind of ghost or otherwise vaguely ghost-like creature, or only specific ones? If the former, does she frequent locations like Nanteredal's Headstone?

And about the summoning of ghosts, how narrow is the line drawn between "Gates magic summoning a ghost" and "*insert not-Gates magic action here* 'summoning' a ghost"? Basically, I'm assuming that a PC with Pamela wouldn't get in trouble for calling his/her Familiar over, but would, say, someone trying to get Nanteredal to show up by bringing his favorite pie get in any (undue) trouble?

"Oriabel is looking for anything ghostly, but she's wildly unlucky.  By the end of Y1 she's half-convinced that her father did something to protect her from hostile ghosts that's ruining her chances across the board; even Pamela seems to avoid her.

Bribing ghosts without using banned phemes is seen as reckless - and maybe a sign of dangerous tendencies - but it's not illegal.  Especially among kids, really."

@Legate of Mineta: As for Louise Kandinsky's father - is he formally divorced from her mother, or is their relationship just something that neither one likes to mention or take advantage of?

Rhi;

"If asked directly, Louise will say something like, "My father is no longer in the picture."  The general consensus among the students who know her well enough to have survived this kind of conversation is that that means they're formally divorced - but it's not like anyone's seen the paperwork."

Perhaps a stupid question, definitely a random one, but either way here goes: Does Academagia follow a priority system when it comes to a string of different mathematical functions, or is it just done left to right? Put more simply, does 1+1×2=3 or 4?

Yes, but the Target must be 'aware' of the Glamour. For reasons of ease, this is most often done by visualization.

So, could a caster do this by glamouring a message saying, "I am casting a glamour spell"?

Has there been any magical research about why it is easier to create images than sound with glamour magic?

@Legate of Mineta: Aristeas from Proconnesus (a legendary mage from Earth) was supposedly able to cause his soul to leave his body whenever he wished, travel to distant places, and return again. Is this possible in Cyve's magic? If so, what pillar would it use?

"There's clear precedent for that in one of the familiar's spirit walks.

The phenomenon itself is broadly associated with Negation, since it involves really complicated bits of metamagic.  That said, generally speaking, human beings have generally been most successful at doing it via enchantment - sleeping with strange jewelry or in very unusual houses.  Note that some mages claim to be able to accomplish it solely through practice and meditation, though it's not easy to confirm."

Practise with Negation, right?
