  1. For what it is worth, I always assumed that the rite would mark the PC in some way with potentially serious consequences in the future. I mean, such a rite might easily lead to serious traces of gates magic in a body...hypothetically.
  2. @Legate of Mineta: Since only one of my characters attending the Schohanwicht has performed the Special Summoning, I was wondering if I could write a little automatically triggered event for the last day of Y2's summer vacation in which a student at the Schohanwicht School who never participated in the Special Summoning reflects about why such a rite was not engaged in - with explanations ranging from the whimsically cute to the paranoid.
  3. @Legate of Mineta2. Are anti-teleportation wards known about and used? What about anti-summoning wards? 3. Does Aminþia Que’la have standard artistic iconography? 4. If a person were caught with a picture of Aminþia Que’la in the Empire of Man, would that itself be a crime?
  4. @Legate of Mineta: I changed the event "Rixenda's sorrow" to be more consistent and available to all colleges.
  5. @Legate of Mineta: I hope that I would not be amiss in portraying Rixenda as a student whom other students speculate about as insane, given what players on this forum have said about her and how the Academagia regards her art.
  6. @Legate of Mineta: 1. what do other people hear when a mage's familiar talks to the mage in a non-human, familiar-specific, way? 2. what do other people hear when Mr. Pebbles talks to the PC in a non-human, familiar-specific, way? 3. are spells known that allow people to understand when a mage's familiar talks to the mage in a non-human, familiar-specific, way?
  7. @Legate of Mineta: Am I correct to think that abstract art of the type that Rixenda practises is generally condemned within the Empire of Man? I mean, abstract/modern art has detractors even today in a more tolerant real life, so...
  8. So, I was wrong. "Growing Up" only covers life until 18, but is essentially an improved and Americanized remake of "Chinese Parents".
  9. There is a new life-simulation game entitled "Growing Up" that seems interesting - it covers a life from beginning to end and is being cross-promoted with "Chinese Parents".
  10. @Legate of Mineta: 1. Are there any secret caches of documents about how to deal with gates and mastery mages that various governments keep but that civilians would not be able to keep because of the documents' detailed descriptions? 2. On a related note, I presume that it would be illegal to teach a course about defence against illegal magics (because such a course would require one to show and discuss illegal magics in excessive detail), but am I right? 3. Are there negation courses about how to defend against legal pillars of magic, at the Academagia or elsewhere?
  11. I have suggested to @Legate of Minetathat the authorized duelling places in the Academagia could have anti-Gates Magic (and mastery magic) wards in order to provide an in-game and in-story limitation upon such consequences.
  12. @Legate of Mineta: Will combat in Y2 include the possibility for using gates magic to summon spirits or creatures to help the summoner (at least for a few turns)?
  13. Could you look such things up? spoiler tags are essential for my writing for this game.
  14. Have spoiler tags been completely disabled, or are there new ways to hide spoilers, or am I just mistaking what they should be? I ask because I cannot enter text with spoiler tags any more in the Writer's Corner forum.
  15. I am terrible at title-creation, but I hope that the spell's description and effects are interesting enough. Warrior’s Training:
  16. Are Kitsune known about in the Empire of Man? Are they a type of fey?
  17. @Legate of Mineta: Is it possible in Y2 to have spells that can be used to benefit only 1 from a limited (that is, not complete?) list of skills? I ask because I am toying with the idea of a spell that would allow a massive boost in any skill at the cost of a temporary penalty to the blackmail skill, and I am thinking that it would be better, for the game and for the story, if such a spell could be used to benefit all skills except for blackmail.
  18. @Legate of Mineta: May I create a suggested Mastery spell? I am not knowing where players could learn it, or what phemes it would use, but I have the effects, the difficulty, and even a little background information worked out for it.
  19. Um, being a knight is is not the same as being the ruler of an independent state - let alone a state in which only mages can rule.
  20. If I recall correctly, though, no states within the Empire of Man are magocracies.
  21. Have any scholars at the Academagia seriously proposed a magocracy as the best form of government?
  22. @Legate of Mineta: Given that Zoe Melis constantly seems to need money and that her Y1 adventure in part involves her using the PC in order to become more normal, I hope that some content is planned for PCs who get closer with Zoe in which people warn the PC that Zoe is just using the PC. Such warning/rumours could be especially strong when Zoe and the PC begin dating, but could also be presented as arising in other contexts (even same-sex friendship). Whether such rumours/warnings would be true, I know not, but I hope that they could involve the journalism/rumour-mongering students from Aranaz in co-operation with Milena.
  23. @Legate of Mineta: Would it be possible in Y2 to have research chains in which, for every step of research, the player must pay money to access it? I ask because I came up with a research chain involving listening to a person read from a manuscript that only she can read (as far as the PC knows) and she is not the sort of person who would do it for free.
