  1. This sounds more like something the PC say after they mentioned helping Eliana before, given that Uliva was mostly sobbing and asking for support ?
  2. Fallen London is more of an ongoing CYOA with plenty of padding than a game, so once you run out of free content it runs purely on the strength of its universe (paid stories, Sunless Sea/Skies, etc) and the (hopefully) charming community. I am fairly certain player interactions work even if you reply to them several years later, but they aren't that interesting by themselves until recently, and even then it still leans on both parties putting the effort in to RP. The Scroll of Taiwu! Of course Nyaa is already doing a LP of it ? It's probably the most depraved game I have seen so far, though, both on NPC and player behaviors. It is a Wuxia game on the surface, with elegant Chinese prose and full of wholesome inane life skills (no Greengrocery and Drive Carriage, but close enough), but NPC tends to enjoy autonomous crime, adultery, incest, graverobbing, while the player quickly degenerates into being a bodysurfing horror that eyeball anything as their next prospective suits of flesh. There's already horror stories where a player poisoned a friend, tracked down the friend's reincarnation, adopted the friend, gave the friend plenty of support and sent them to be a Shaolin monk, only to poison the friend once again when they became a famous monk, tracked down the reincarnated kid once again for the grand finale of hijacking a body with some measly Kung Fu that get stronger based on the karma of previous life.
  3. The lack of rivals by default wins me over to Hedi in the long run, but only marginally.
  4. This might be a bit late, but here's a thought for year 2 and beyond on character creation: a character sheet showing you what you get before you actually start the game?
  5. Some sort of Geometry exercise about measuring liquid metal? A Dialectic exercise where you play the role of safety inspector? Quite a reach, but if you can't invent insane homework related reasons in a magical school, you have nowhere else to do so.
  6. And that's a 7-year gap between two mentions!
  7. Sounds like some professor got a planetarium dropped on her head a few too many times!
  8. VB is as un-magical as it get, but I imagine the other three games can poke plenty of fun at it. Sadie digging up a mummified dwarf or visiting an exhibition of humanoid battleship might be overkill, though.
  9. It probably does get significantly less pleasant as the students affected grow up and become more self-conscious. It is probably easier to wriggle out of bullying accusations if you are targeting big groups of people at once with pranks. But then again, right now Academagia isn't in a modern society where bullying is universally decried - plus the rich and powerful can easily throw their weights around without being scrutinized like today.
  10. Could be used for props, I suppose, and these fake coals are most definitely not infused by the tears of children in their creation Happy Christmas to everyone..... and Happy New Year SoonTM too!
  11. Stress +3 Vitality -1 (Ear bleeding)
  12. How's the war fatigue, though? String of victories can only go so far when it comes to war.
  13. Yes! I am really sorry to have brought this up (which ended up as an argument) - I just see so many people being very emotional about it, so I just wanted to murmur some vague consoling words or something. Let's leave it at this - stay well, guys.
  14. I hope people are not feeling too devastated by the election.
  15. Almost Done™, Soon-to-be Done™ Look at all these exciting flavours!
  16. A wedding hosted in the disaster-ridden school that is Academagia sounds fun. Are there any such events hosted in the school in the past?
  17. Well at least that is one more bragging point. "The game is so fiendishly complex, even after several years no one managed to figure out how to reach a main subject's classroom without being a student of said subject."
  18. Well, this *was* a surprise as well. Glad to hear he is in recovery now, though.
  19. A easier way would be to call it a Debutante Ball, which is very much a thing in real life for high society.
  20. Chaos factor, blah blah blah. The team probably ended up in a nice cafe getting distracted.
  21. What program is that, if I may? I haven't tried to do any post-processing after blowing them up, but small and painterly images tend to be not particularly good for sharpening.
  22. And blowing up the location art is not.... particularly effective, it seems
