  1. I'm really not focusing on it at all outside of the first week or two!

    Edit: I’m suspecting Ausdauer is the key, as her pass on information ability combined with the great hall is the great CoS-stacking enabler for initial clique building. 

    I’ll have to check the wiki and the logs to see if any of my other clique members are using it (I do recall seeing them use notes fairly often), but it’s possible I’ve got a gossiper or two within my clique that is helping hold it together so I don’t have to!

    There’s a lot of seemingly odd stuff going on in this game though. For example, Vincent Eins has a fitness score of 12. At least I assume it’s a 12, the “1” and “2” digits are on seperate lines. I don’t have quite enough experience to know if this is actually all that unusual though.

  2. I hadn’t used the gossip ability (or similar as far as I know) even once. Maybe one of my clique members is doing it- I’d have to go back and hunt through the history to check.

    I have had relationships with 4+ clique members at once at 1 each for extended periods - since befriending them during week 1/2 - without ever getting a break up warning, much less an actual break up. Phillip has been at 0 (to me) since he joined, for example! 

    If they slowly tick down outside of my college, it must be extremely slowly - I’m in morvidus, so not a single member of my clique is from my college and I haven’t seen any relationship drops by the end of midterms. 

    Is is there any way to see what my clique members relationships are to each other normally in the game, or does that require mod tools? 

    Am I just right on the border of stable clique size and I’ve lucked into something here? Just kinda surprised things are so smooth!

  3. I'm finding it pretty trivially easy to maintain a pretty large clique in my game. I haven't had anything even close to infighting or had to really take actions to do 'clique management'. 

    Clique (in order of addition): Ausdauer, Emilia P, Neta, Silke, Zoe, Vincent E, Alan D, Carmine, Durand. Phillip Hauck added himself later.

    Is this normal? The largest NPC clique is only 4 members. I've had most of the clique together since about the second week of the game and am just after midterms. It *feels* like it should be harder to have a clique this large. Or is there a higher # critical mass where the clique starts to break down? In case it matters, my base Charm and Befriend are both at 4 (adjusted to 6 each with clique abilities).


  4. Astrology: Midnight worked when it triggered on Incantation Theory.

    I tried Apprenticeship:Wizard (as it will always give incantation theory, for testing purposes) to go back before selecting prodigy, no luck there.

    I'm guessing it's the 'order of the background' that it goes in. Family of Wizards might work since it also comes before Prodigy, but like Astrology: Midnight is likely RNG dependent. Although the description implies it should inform you of the 3 magical skills mentioned... But it doesn't.


  5. I've noticed that if I take the Incantation Prodigy background but don't take it as a class skill my Theory of Incantation skill maximum is 10 rather than the 11 it is supposed to be in the background.

    This applies even if I start with the Theory of Incantation skill from the Academy of Baltagio.

    Is there any way around this other than taking Incantation as a Class? (Esteban Contu's existence kind of sadly makes taking Incantation as a class  - at least in Y1 - feel like a waste) I tried taking the Academy: Baltagio Background and got Theory of Incantation as one of my random skills, but the maximum was still 10.

    I'd guess the same is true for Negation but I'm taking it as a class and the maximum seems to apply normally.
