    Bugs in Patch 14

    Random Event Docks 8 The rope holding them in place must have broke Random Event Theft 1 Arithmetic exit, failure You quickly find a memeber of the city guard Typo - member Random Event Theft 3 "As if!" snaps She before she storms off In that case it is Els Lore - Rimbal to a Battle & Student Essay Comparing Rimbal to a Battle They have identical content, and I gained them both together Playing a new game started under patch 15, I just got reprimanded for skipping detention but I didn't have any detention scheduled. I'm pretty sure because I didn't get punished for anything up to that point in that game. Maybe not a coincidence : I also got reprimanded for trespassing on the same day, which was possible since I was visiting a location. I was under the impression this issue was resolved before, it's strange. Hope I am not missing something.

    Bugs in Patch 14

    If it's supposed to be that way, fine then. My intention was not to second guess your game design and balance. I'm sure a lot of people would be delighted to stumble upon the spell and people like me have the liberty not to use it. I wondered because I happened to get it with my first ever character on the first week she entered the Academagia. That profile is easy to boost during character creation and one only need a level 5 in a certain subskill to unlock the spell.

    Bugs in Patch 14

    I'll closing my eyes when I see the pop-up then. I actually think it's fair to spend a time slot in order to find out what the skills are, and to acquire one of those skills if we don't own any of them. They are yet to be experienced events, we are not supposed to know in advance anyways. Just didn't expect I couldn't try again. I understand you can't start re-doing the whole game now, but the events could have been written in such a way a retry would have been logical in the context. Are there many adventures that will do that apart from the main ones, just disappear after a failure on the first try? It happened to me in the beginning of at least two clique NPC adventures, and I assumed it was some kind of bad linking. Possible balance issue I didn't want to post elsewhere : I played around with the game a bit, then when I decided to create my first real character I stumbled upon a spell right from the start. Evaluate Situation. I happened to make a more specific profile, so it might be unlikely that a lot of people will stumble upon it during their first week at the Academagia. But even then, I can boost any sub-skill so high I could do whatever adventure I want so easily (unless all exits require skills and not subskills, which I haven't seen yet). An adventure of the Pirates' difficulty I could have completed within the first month of play or so. Who needs friends or a even a familiar! I could also make money easily thanks to the sub-skill boosting. Not that outreageously useful for exams though, so I don't know whether that spell was intended to be unlocked that early considering it is without any prerequisites or rolls. Maybe the effects last one day too long? If they lasted only one day, no skill could be boosted by more than +8 considering the third slot needs to be used for the adventure or money making activity. Now we can get to +20! And again, the problem seems to me that it can be done from the start if the right general profile is selected. After training the first day I had the spell already. That spell might have been intended to be some kind of hidden bonus, I don't know. I personally hated getting it that early It made the game really boring to me, and I dropped it after two game months. Now I hope people won't be lynching me for saying that or even telling you about it. It just felt out of whack that a character could complete a main quest within the first month of play.

    Well, it's in patch 15. Event Tavern 19 Concentration option, success (I think, it was blue) Prudence's bio displays instead of her name One other I don't know the number of, it was about the Academagia being a maze, which I know could be a lot of events. The exit for the first always green option was a blank page. Also, this is a remark. I failed the last Pirate adventure (about the treaty) the first time around and now the adventure has disappeared from the list. So I can't try again. It would be so tedious to start another similar game and go through all the training and motions again, just to complete that adventure (especially a major one). Or I would have to save the game at very short intervals not to lose any adventure opportunities like that, which would be equally tedious. There is no way to know in advance what skills are required, could be anything. I feel I have worked hard on a game for nothing and wasted my time.

I've not seen the next leg of this Adventure for many turns and I have probably tried them all to be sure. Mentioning it in case it's not supposed to be that way. (of course, at the time I had no reason to write the name of the Story down, sorry).

  7. My character has recently learned about (not added to herself) Violin, High Quality Bookboard and Fadink Ink, Blotter. They had blank pages so I assumed they were items, but I didn't find them in my inventory. I finally found Violin in the recipe section. But no trace of the Blotter and Bookboard (that I could find). Are they recipes too? Is it that I need a higher level of a skill to read the recipes? Or are they totally different things? Thanks!
  8. I see there are several lores beginning with Incant x3 The one with the typo is : Incant, Incant, Incant, by Xelta Drighter I It as if she's created fire probably It's
  9. Hopefully, not already reported - now a bit complicated to search the support forum with multiple pre-DLC 2 typo threads. Just using the seacrh function in single threads would be more convenient. Location - Imperial Palace : Armory From personallly trained to Militia Guild recruits I'm seeing 3 L s Subskill Description - Incantation Spells Given the scaricity of water scarcity Subskill Description - Bookbinding with the new technologies, thouogh though Pheme - Machinery Clockwork sub skill subskill everywhere else Pheme - Finesse the difficulty some may have in drawing it on their Palate should be palette Lore - Youlin of Olanik they found themselves unable to soundly a conclusively beat him Lore - Roots in Dark Magic I could ignore this, even if I had wanted to couldn't (?)

  10. Oh, I was under the impression I hadn't read anything in its description about curing it by resting either. I wasn't sure since I got it in a game two weeks ago. Just mentioning it in case the players are supposed to be made aware of that. Otherwise that's fine but then we got a tiny spoiler
  11. Event Library 13 NPC name is replaced by its bio/description A small UI wish: When we hover over the locations in the confirmation orders/locations menu, descriptions display for a while then disappear. I am a slow reader so sometimes I am not done. Or it's because I want to think a bit because many abilities bonuses are involved. It would be really nice if we could click on a location without the menu closing because the game considers it's a selection. Would give us all the time we want reading and thinking. I realize the locations menu would then need some kind of a choice confirmation button, which is probably not a possibility for now. Anyways, I find the actions menu, for instance, much more convenient to go through at my own pace. Because when I click on an action the description just stays there as long as I don't select another action or confirm my choice. Just bought a new computer and I'm happy to report Academagia is running like a charm without any lag or delay
  12. I'm pretty sure there are typos lurking in events especially, because one person doesn't see all exit screens. And obviously one person doesn't get to see all events even after many, many, playthroughs. Glad you're joining the fun! I hate typos Edit: oh, if you see a typo in an event, please press F12 and it will show you a name and number. Identifying the event that way will help the developers locate and correct the typo much more easily.
  13. After a random event my character started to smell bad........ very bad. Made my charm go down -3 I think, for over a week (thought that was hilarious. still giggling when thinking about it today). I don't remember it was reported at the time, but I noticed I had a new passive Ability (greyed) in my list. In the description it was explained. Maybe going through your abilities you would notice something similar? Anyways, I'm sure Legate will have a much better answer for you.
  14. Community events or stories are edited before making it into the game, so I wouldn't worry about it. They will also want to maintain uniformity I'm sure. The way I see it, this is a creative space where people brainstorm and write their events as they come to them. Furthermore, a lot of us on this forum are not native English speakers. Ertael, I see, lives in Denmark. The idea is to encourage participation from everyone. Black Chicken then makes the necesary corrections and modifications. Sometimes I'm finding in the game an average of almost one typo per day my character goes through. There are a couple of people reporting them on a regular basis, why don't you give us a hand? I personally am not the best typo hunter since English is a language that I have learned later than earlier in life. The typo thread is in the Support section of this forum. Please join us in our quest to make this great game typo free!

  17. Speaking in general, players often want a game altered in a way so reaching their goals is much easier. That is actually what I am concerned about, because then I lose interest. Granted everyone is different. I'll trust your judgement then. Thanks for your reply.
  18. Speaking in general, players often want a game altered in a way so reaching their goals is much easier and faster. That is actually what I am concerned about, because then I lose interest. Granted everyone is different. I like the basic game design as it is now but obviously I trust your judgement because you know it best. Thanks for your reply.
  19. I am happy with the way it was designed and as it is now. I don't have any problems with a subskill being at 10 and a Parent at zero because the others aren't yet available to me. That's part of the challenge and what makes the game interesting to me. Which brings me to a more general point : the fact is that we hear less often from people who are happy and who don't want some basic game dynamics made different. There is already an unintended consequence of some actions that allows us to study for a class we are not enrolled in. I understand this will most probably not be corrected. I can live with that and just not use those actions so I play more the way the game was designed. That's easy to do. An option that informs me of a Subskill I feel would be different though. It changes the dynamic of the game. Anyways, what I want to convey is that I have bought the game and started to play it in a certain way, designed strategies accordingly. I would not like my experience to be altered after installing a patch I would have no choice to install -- because at the same time it corrects other things that actually don't work as intended. I would not want having to make a list of things I have to play around to preserve the same experience as before either. All I am saying is just be careful please. People who would have designed the game otherwise and who are not happy with this and that choice of game design, maybe can make their own games using the mod tools. Or maybe those special features should be available in an optional patch. I don't know, I know little about how these things work. Obviously I respect other people's opinions and recognize they have every right to make all the suggestions they want. I'm just saying this because I've had my gaming experience altered in a way I really didn't like (other games), because of changes made after the release and that some more casual players than me wanted. That's not fun and very frustrating as well. I feel it's better when it's done in a way that can be optional, and especially when the change comes almost two months after the release.
  20. Event Disguise / Infiltration 3 You're dancing when you see a Professor Pachait arrive Event Crafting 4 Pure Luck option, failure the bushes rudely fling you opnto the path typo - onto Event Duel 1 main text speeds up.A roar from the crowd space missing Lore - He, from the Grand Wizardly Army and closed my eye just one...? Lore - Philosopher Mastorus on Mammals, from Creatures "Creatures" is missing from the title when the lore is displayed in the right area, but title is ok in the report Lore - Philosopher Mastorus on Amphibians, Creatures There's a colon instead of a quotation mark at the beginning of the lore : The frog Lore - Zelda Irmes, Age 9, on Animals I love aminals Reading the rest of the lore I don't think the inversion of m and n is intentional (because of her age) I found some Pheme descriptions in which the word Pheme is not capitalized and in some instances I' m pretty sure they should be. It might not be a priority and if they are not always written with a capital P then I would risk over-reporting because I'm not familiar with the rules of English on this. Let me know if you want them reported.
  21. Understood about the doubling of phemes. I'm not really playing yet, just trying out basic things. Story - Quite elementary, my dear bruiser... (Philippe Marchant Adventure) Patience option, failure while he was running and errand typo - an Skill Description - Infiltration those who study this Skill will fing typo - find Catalog description - Adventures in Astronomy Most of the items found here tech students typo - teach Lore - Study Areas of the Geometric Art something unseen that is far more important that financial assistance typo - than Since I'm having you take a look at that lore already - I was not sure about Angles, polygons, areas and perimeter are but a few areas Wondered if perimeter should have an s also... My English Skill is not high enough for me to successfully use a Typo Detection Spell on this sentence.
  22. thanks - yes, it's possible the decrease in merit came from a random event. Event Performance 8 Option - give the money You look atOlivia's face : missing space Event Garden 2 Option - Negation spell, failure deciding to attack the problem for a different angle Story Shall We Dance? - Philippe Marchant Adventure part II Option - Manipulation, success I think You hope he can controll his anger double L Lore - Donner of the Arms would begin to surface as a means__ strengthen spells missing word - to Action - Practice Math Expand RDM Arithmetic Skill instead of the usual Expand Random And two instances of phemes being repeated in a spell description. I am not sure whether it is intended or not (have not played long enough to know). If it's intented I apologize, please tell me so I don't report that in the future. Spell - Wizard's Aid Pheme section = Magic Magic Time Time Intelligence Insight Magic Spell - Beginner's Dispel Pheme section = Dispel Dispel
  23. Do you mean how did I do in the event? I don't remember what option I chose but since it was my first day obviously I failed It is a very nice event to fail
  24. mecharm, got your event on my first day as a Morvidus student It was even more fun reading it in the game!
  25. Event Awesome Community 4 First student's name missing, it is displayed as (?) Ability - Observe Stenephan Pastis' Court description Effect description includes Expand Wit SS instead of the usual Expand Wit 1 - SS I started a new game with patch 7, attending Morvidus. One of my fellow student gained 3 Merit Points but below Morvidus total Merit showed a score of only 1. There was no report of reprimand or anything like that, it was my second day. I'm puzzled.
