  1. 2) Is it planed that we see the new Professor that join at the end of The Topiary Garden as actual teach in year 3 or later? (I don't think we see her in Y2 because of bureaucratic err game engine reasons)

    The description of Professor Storey's desk mentions "with Professor Storey's rumored past, perhaps it's best not to get caught." What rumors would a first year student have heard?

    (this one may have been asked before, but it's not coming up with the search.)

    I suspect it is because of the Marchant family as their sons all got into Morvidus and where all troublemakers with Philippe the youngest and most tame one.

  2. Did your game tester find something from my save files? (especial just let it run in the background while doing something else only put strain on the PC and not the tester ^^)

  3. The big question is if there still enough people active watching Academagia who might be willing to regular pay for something on Patreon. BCS discouraged many people by now because Y2 need so extrem long, if they set up a Patreon short after the Steam release for Y2 it might have worked. (If my RPG is of any relevance it was only visited by 9 people per page I made and some of them from BCS them self)

    Also people want something in return for the money they spend, what will cost BCS extra time. BCS, unlike some other people on Patreon, have to pay taxes so it becomes a difficult balance to not even end in a netto lost for them.

  4. Its probably more like if they direct continue in Y2 with the core skill of the college or if they let the student study some side subject to make the core skill easier understandable.

    The Legate mentioned some time ago that we will have more options what we can do in each class day in Y2. So even if our core class for Vernin is I.e. Alchemy we probably unlock higher Enchant SS trough this class and then can switch what we do on the class day to increase this Enchant SS.  At last I suspect that one of the path the team is / was considering.

  5. On the other scale end is it planed that a class can also only have 1 student or will a class not available when there not enough student who could & would take it?

    (I personal would allow with just 1 student and explain that there some students from other years to keep the choices up)

  6. Is there some kind of rivalry planed between Katja Quinnecht and the player if they are both continue taking music and the player also focus on the violin? 

    Are there many classes planed that require 2 or more skills at a certain level that they could be taken?

    Have you already planed how you will handle classes in Y2 when in imported games not enough student have the skills to join them?

  7. 3rd letter home


    Dear parents, soon we will have the mid therm exams and I would be lying if I told that I’m not nervous about the exam. I hope I did judge the Professor right and learned the things they will test during the exams.

    Because I heard we are allowed to use our own wands during the practical exam I bought me a powerful one for Revision.

    To gain some practical training my friends and me helped testing a combat simulator created by some Godina students. I never expect that there is a student with superior understanding in Glamour magic in this college but the simulated combat was really to live like! There where still some odd reactions to the creative usage of my spells but otherwise it worked greatly the few times we tested it.

    Academagia was under attack by some masked persons during the last Saturday and after all the training fights I did recently I thought that I could be of help. Good that they all focused on the Professor instead of the few Student that also where helping as in retrospect I don’t think I would have survived any of their attacks. After the fight was won by us the Legate was looking for someone who is willing to deliver a message to a former student during The Least Feast. I was the only one willing to going and so during the morning of the Holiday I was instructed with the message I should deliver. I still can’t believe it! The Legate used a Gate-artifact to send me to the Forest of Broken Pines where the receiver is supposed to live. So the academy still have things that using the forbidden Gate Magic and even let a student using it!

    I was really lucky to direct meet with the group of the Duke of Broken Pines and managed to deliver the warning while they where on the run. Not much later we where attacked by people wearing the same masks and attire as the people attacking Academagia the day before! Although I managed to assist the group of the Duke a fireball suddenly coming from a flying beast I never saw before knocked me out. When I woke up I was transported by a Gryphon and about to land at Academagia I got even one of the feathers of it as a gift. After I was bandaged and received some other medical care I still could attend the banquet in the evening.

    During a walk to get my head free earlier this month I saw a mercenary group that use a horn, the music instrument, as their main weapon. Just by playing on their horn they easy could burst large rocks. Because I was curios about it I talked with their training officer. He even gave me some basic instruction how it works and then gave me a horn to test it my self. It was quite difficult but after the 2nd try there where cracks at the stone I targeted. The training officer complimented me that I’m a natural and allowed me to join their training as long they are staying in Mineta. I only could join their training for a few times before they had to move to their next assignment. Still I managed to burst a stone with a horn, that is my own now, during the last training afternoon I could join. I hope they don’t have any thought that I would join their group as a mercenary later, as even a commanding officer in such a mercenary group would below the station of someone of our family. Also I think the violin suit me better then the horn if I had to earn my living via music.

    Next week Tuesday will be my Revision exam, what is just 2 day away, so I will do some more learning and training for it today after I send this letter.


    Honor and long living to our family,

    Your son Michael

    "There's an Astrological component to a geas; it's not that another person is imposing his will upon you, but rather that Destiny/the stars are acting through you.  It helps that it's consensually entered into, or imposed under very strict guidelines overseen by the Temple."

    So to study geas one also need some knowledge in Astrology beside Glamour? 

  9. Sound like some kind of crafting was / is planed for this item. In Year 1 you first need to find a receipt, then all the materials and then you even need the right (sub) skill high enough to craft something new. With the limited stocks in the shops we have in Y1 crafting is sadly a uninteresting thing.
