Will double degrees be available. Or can I have Tripetta switch back to Glass. She still needs fire.

Tripetta has cast her 2nd Air spell.

You mean you want to pursue both aether and glass? Sure, but do note that will take a long while.

Well, I'm still sticking with my first choice. Anastasia's going to learn aether, and by extension become a summoner.

Well, darn it. Should have brought a magnifying glass....

Unless I can create one with Light, I'm out of ideas about the mural.

Was hoping maybe ultraviolet might reveal more, maybe even toward the center, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Next player.

Nope. The primary purpose is education, not discovery. Letting the students explore what they want at their own pace is more beneficial.

Ah, so it wasn't a requirement that they discover something new, it was just Professor Driftwood waxing poetic. Thanks for clearing it up.

More or less, yeah. I mean, he's still a magi-scientist and would be thrilled to find a new discovery. :p

I do, thats why I generally post more at night.

But sometimes I can sneak one in during the day.

Im almost always able to check up on things though, so Im often more active in keeping up with the OOC.

Until next Wednesday I'm going to be on vacation. I should be able to post at least once a day until then, but I may be a little spotty. I'll be able to keep up with reading posts easier though.

Hey, Ry, just one thing I'd like the point out: the accent Sam tried to hide would be more of a rural Altomuran accent. It's her adoptive family that has Frinweldian roots, not her. If anything, what she switched to might more closely resemble Frinweldian.

Just some musings, not trying to be critical.

As a player, this main hall is sadly too clean and the 'inscription' too complex.

Sadly, I don't believe that going to ultraviolet light will reveal anything like: remnants of paint, blood, etcetera.

The 'alphabet' (glyphs, symbols, whatever) seems to defy logic. Extremely complex symbols? When, in our world, we look at numbers, one was made with one angle, w was made with 2 angles, 3... etcetera. And if the letters are tied to sounds (like phonics of the Phoenician alphabet), how many different sounds did the ancient builders have in their language?

By the description, the 'text' is made of 'words' not longer than four characters.

Stylized 'hieroglyphics'?

Perhaps more clues will present themselves?

I will have to be on the lookout. :)
