Schwarzbart Posted August 15, 2015 Report Share Posted August 15, 2015 Because I started a discussion about the long travel times we will see in Y2 when having a heritage background I saw the need of a own thread for it and to broden it a bit lets have it general about Y2 holiday. How long is the summer break that travel time of several week in one direction would work out so that the player can stay at home for more then just a few days? About 8 weeks- it is possible to spend a large part of that time in Travel. I think we'll all be happy with how Y2 turns out, but if not... Well, There's nothing stopping us from making new characters that don't have to deal with traveling, so... I'm pretty cool with it. Beside, Oncestrian Nobles related to Royalty might become the next emperor/empress. Do you know the odds of that happening to Mineta-raised characters? None. And do you hear me complaining about it? (Well, except for here but even so, here it's more like stating a fact than complaining, so whatever. ) For me I use my mod that change most of the Heritage backgrounds to -1 that I can get the school background combined with the right heritage background at zero cost as one is nothing without the other in my eyes and I feel that travel time is a large penalty that comes close to hall sessions (No locations and very limited space to do something). Also I use the Heritage backgrounds to have some variance in the summer holiday but if it turns out we spend most time on the trip then the variance between the heritage background becomes fare to small. Maybe interestign thigns could happen while you travel, I'm sure you could still do some skill training, studying.. Perhaps you could get soem new books Before you board the ship. Play with your familiar, offer it some training. I think everyone should invest some time on their familiar. I doubt they will treat travelign the same as beign locked up in the infirmary where you can't do anything. Also, I recall reading that airships utilised the services of travelign wizards, maybe there coudl be soem activities and events onboard. Kind of Think it would be sad for you to miss it if you live in Mineta. Or maybe you won't in case you go and visit some "friends". Albert even with some events we are talking about 112 timeslots and more you will spend on the airship. So i.e. if you plan to read books and each book is good for lets say 10 uses its over 5 books you need on each direction in addition to all the things you already have from year 1 and we already know that there will be problems taking everything with us. Study is absolut impossible during the summer break as you only select your class when returned from the summer break according to the Legate. Some player who didn't care about the familiar in year 1 will lose the familiar in year 2 (it was mentioned you need bound at last at 3 to sure keep it). Even train realistic don't work at the airship for many skills because of the lack of space and the problem that we are forbidden to use our magic if I remember right! The very same problem is with the job you mentioned without be allowed to use magic why would the airship captain give us a paid job? I can't recall anything about being forbidden to use our magic(unless it's the forbidden type of course). Maybe you're thinking of potter. We do a lot of magic outside the school, why would the summer break be different, and it was mentioned that captains welcome wizards aboard since they can be very helpful.1§1 Edit: 1§1 was my parrot saying, hug me, scrath my head, spend some time on me! The Legate did say that all those students leaving school tended to wreak havoc as they passed by. Some people certainly don't look forward to that date. I might be wrong about the not use magic outside of Academagia but kids usually not care about such No's but it might be problematic for adults if they offer jobs to kids that need magic to do it while said kids are not allowed to use magic.
