  1. To follow up, is there an overview of the different types of magic anywhere? For Revision I imagine things might be split depending on the scale and initial state of what you're trying to change, but for Negation I can't really imagine the types. Negating Spells/negating location effects/negating stuff like gravity?
  2. This has probably been asked already, but is there some kind of curriculum for the magical classes? Like, what core competency separates a First Year student of Negation (Revision/Astrology/Enchantment) from a Second (Third/Fourth/Fifth) Year student? I mean, obviously you learn more spells as you go, but I assume there's more to it.
  3. I have some questions about the control mechanic. Specifically, I have Formally Invited some of my characters friends to cast some spells, and I want them to do so at the Vernalicium. Is there a way to do that, or are all the settings just random?
  4. What about rain, then? Is that all magic?
  5. How high up are the islands floating above the oceans? Are they close to cloud level?
  6. I have a few questions regarding Astrology. First of all, what exactly gets taught in Year one? I've read a few lores, but they are bedtime stories, Bargolis' ramblings, or seemingly unrelated stories about demons that become stars (Well, not entirely unrelated, but I doubt that's part of the curriculum). So what is the current theory on what the planets represent, what do pupils actually learn in class? Just the names and movement of planets? Zodiac signs and their significance? Finding items? How relevant is Astrology in the daily life of an average Minetan, what do they think of it? How often do horoscopes made by a wizard come true? How often do those made by a First Year work? Also, why is it called the Erevard Equation? Who was Erevard, what does he have to do with Arcana (Or Courts, I think they're called?)
  7. That just feels wrong, though. At 13 Skill and 20 Attribute I should get more use out of Astrology than as a total beginner. Maybe change the constellations to have more negative effects at low levels with harder to obtain positive ones that cancel them out?
  8. Honestly, I still don't understand how Astrology works mechanically. Do you actually have a chance to prevent negative effects?

    Curing Poisons?

    Release the antidote! ^^
  10. Oan's Adventure mentions a Spell - 'Aura of Cemoros' that I can't find in the ModTools. The MC uses it to attract moths that then light up the darkness at his behest. But what does it actually do? Attract critters, or all animals? Is the talking part of it, or was that just the MC being savvy? Also, will Year 2 have Gravity Ball?
  11. Who are the Keepers of Cantarole? Are they the ones manning the Wall?

    Was there an update just now? If so, what did it do?

    UI Questions

    Yeah, that works, but it somewhat defeats the point. I mean it does save the specifics of the action, but much of the convenience the feature could provide is lost. Thanks for the advice, though. Maybe it will be in the next patch, that'd be nice. Edit: Actually, on further testing, it doesn't save the specifics of the Action (things like Train ->Theory of Negation). Well, it does, but only for the day you save it on. So you can save the preset with specifics, change everything back to rest, confirm and when you load the preset in the specifics are still there. But if you then advance to the next day and load in the preset, the specifics are gone again. Would be nice if that could be changed as well.
  14. Ah, well that's a shame. Thank you for the recommendations. How does the Gallery stack up against the Great Hall, in your experience? Also, have you considered publishing this as a steam guide?
  15. I just want to say, fantastic work Metis. I actually didn't know about Elation. Maybe I ought to look into Emotions more. Actually, if I could request a topic, could you maybe do a section on Locations? I know about The Great Hall, but other than that one I'm pretty clueless. Really, I only utilize them through Abilities.
