I have often said that Morvidus College is the best college because of its easy playing, its interesting adventures (including Pelia), and its easy synergy with Gates Magic. But Hedi College, although rather difficult, is interesting in its own right. So, my most recent complete playthrough as a Hedi student saw me do the following: rescue Galitia Nesci, Complete Zoe Melis's adventure and form Love with her, and complete the main adventure as the Triplets in a way that did not involve rescuing the Captain's daughter. My courses were: Arithmetic, Dialectic, Glamour, Grammar, Rhetoric, Zoology. My statistics were as follows: Fitness 7 Finesse 5 Charm 8 Strength 1 Intelligence 14 Insight 11 Luck 6 Aesthetics 2 Ambush 3 Arithmetic 15 Art 8 Astrology 12 Athletics 0 Befriend 8 Beguile 2 Blackmail 8 Botany 1 Brew 0 Bully 1 Calligraphy 0 Compete 3 Cooking 1 Dialectic 11 Duel 0 Economy 2 Enchant 13 Engineering 1 Enspell 0 Espionage 1 Explore 2 Forge 8 Gates 0 Geometry 2 Glamour 13 Gossip 0 Grammar 14 Heraldry 8 History 11 Incantation 12 Language 2 Law 1 Malice 11 Mastery 0 Music 0 Natural philosophy 6 Negation 1 Patrol 2 Plot 10 Raid 2 Religion 2 Research 18 Revision 13 Rhetoric 13 Rimbal 0 Sabotage 2 School Survival 6 Sleight of Hand 6 Society 12 Spy 1 Synchronicity 0 War 3 Zoology 12 I have the following comments: 1. I hope that Galitia Nesci will play a role in future installments. 2. I conceived of my character as rather amoral and greedy but not exceptionally bold - but no coward. In other words, the type of character who would work easily with Zoe but would only reluctantly get involved with the Triplets' schemes. This makes me wonder: will future installments have the option to betray the Triplets, like the PC in Y1 can betray Ilaro Dati?
Opening Remarks: My mother was a grave-robber. She and her strong-handed husband gave me life. My hairs are brown and my mind is sharp. My father was an engraver and publisher of engravings. He and his sharp-eyed wife gave me life. My skin is pinkish-brownish-yellowish and my hands are capable. The man and woman who gave me life are alive, but not my parents any more. They raged at me for what I am doing. My mother wanted me to attend a specialized school and become a scholar or physician. Tears came to her eyes when she told me that those careers were better than being a grave robber. My father wanted me to enroll in Aranaz College so that I could learn some magic as well as how to create fine books with nice illustrations. Books, he told me, are a good career for mages and non-mages alike. But I want to be a dancer. It was few years ago when I danced in a ward pageant, but since then, dancing has been my great goal in life. My parents told me that dancing cannot be a good job - that dancers associate with terrible people such as actors and worse. When I asked who could be worse than a grave-robber, my mother said that I should wait until I was older to know about such things and my father yelled at me. I tried to compromise. I even agreed to go to the Academagia in Godina College, but apparently I am not athletic enough for that college. But when I got accepted into Hedi College and resolved to go, my mother made signs to ward against fays and my father said that it would be better to be a book publisher than one whom people would suspect of being a spy or an actor. Still, when I insisted, they agreed to at least take me to the Academagia and purchase school supplies for me, although they gave me no money and made it clear that they would give me no money and have no contact with me while I studied there. They want me to fail or grow eager for money. But I will prove them wrong! I will become a dancer and a brilliant Hedi student. My courses are dialectic, rhetoric, grammar, revision, zoology, and glamour, and I will succeed at all of them while becoming a good dancer. I am glad that I have discovered some libraries here - the library of Mantele and the library of the Mantle of Stars - that seem to link every topic to a pillar of magic - revision and astrology, respectively. So I will be able to study revision and astrology, at least, even as I train myself as a dancer.
