Question about the Purple Academy of Thei Background

12 posts in this topic

One of my characters has the Purple Academy of Thei Background and completed the associated quest, gaining access to the teaching crystals. But that character did not study at the crystals much, and has a mastery level of 3. Will this leave such a character at a disadvantage in Y2?

I hope that Y2 will come out this year, so that I can see for myself so many things about the game. How goes the progress on it?

I just saw this question, if you take this background and not learn Mastery its your problem as you still get all the spell casting related downside. Also in year 2 or 3 if you not learned enough Mastery your path in this school of magic might become blocked.

@Schwarzbart: Thanks for the answer. I have another question, then. In one of my other games, my character discovered the Teaching Crystals without having the background or having completed the quest. Are there any Y2 consequences planned for just knowing about that location?

Actual it was planed by me that you could discover this location in year 2 even without the background and use it then but without the adventure you shouldn't be able to use it in year 1. Still I can't tell how the plan of the team are different then what I had written.

So if you can find and use it in year 1 then @Legate of Mineta need to answer if this is intended but I doubt there is any downside.

The Location can be Discovered (in Y1, there isn't a way to prevent it), but you aren't meant to use them without the Adventure.

@Legate of Mineta: I just reloaded my old game in which my character discovered the teaching crystals without the background or completing the adventure, and that character can use the crystals to learn about mastery! This is apparently a bug, but I don't see it that way - teaching crystals may teach all who find them.

My thought when i have written it was that the stone you visit before ending up in the library teach you some form of magic that you unknowingly use each time you learn from the crystals and without this magic you can't use this library.
