    goodness, there really is a curse on creators of all sorts! First webcomic creators, now the Titans themselves!
    Hope you're feeling better, no need to apologize!

    To come back to the topic of caster leveling, I don't think it's to strong now that I took a closer look. A caster's Juice (and therefor their means of gaining XP) increases linearly, while the level-up requirements increase exponentially. This means that yes, they will reach levels 2 and 3 quickly, but then it slows gradually, and past 5 it would definitely be slow. I think it'd be appropriate to take away the possibility of gaining extra XP from training in the MK however, 10% is enough.

    Way to read my reaction perfectly haha, I actually had to open my spreadsheet to see if we HAD that much in the treasury, since it's been so long since the last time I did some moneymancy.

    We know that casters in the Magic Kingdom thousands of turns old are still in single-digit levels. Given that the XP requirements for leveling are masked, I suppose it's up to Kaed to ensure levels come from this at a reasonable pace- although I do have to say, there are precious few things in this game that give defined amounts of XP and I would much prefer to eliminate them for system uniformity. We don't need a 10% figure to know that casters occasionally level, but slowly, from casting.

    Yet I'll keep CC'ing him on everything indefinitely, so that I can keep his PMs to me in the reply chain when looking back at my messages. His legacy lives on!

    To be fair, we actually don't know how old those casters are, because none of them have showed up in Book 0 yet. However, it's also important to note they are not always necessarily casting. Many casters have disciplines which can only be practiced when they're part of a side (or hired to serve one). But on the topic in general I defer to Kaed since he's the Titan...and this is the reason we playtest as well. However I will say this...the game does have one example of a caster who has cast enough to level, and so far they are on par with their Ruler. So thus far, it seems the system is working.

    Iziz finds foot taste relaxing. Do not judge.

    At least you know their names.
    Everyone but Chief of my natural allies, Courtier, and one of the Heavy Stabbers who was sent on a ruin pillaging mission are all faceless goons to Vlab.
    They're also known to the upper echelons of Cadaveran command as spear/arrow catchers.
    But don't tell them that. They want to believe they're destined for a High Score.
    Anyway. Any news on updates, Kaed?
    Actually, Kaed, do you have any relation to Kaede Smith?

    If only everyone responded as fast as zerobear, we'd make real progress. Ex is taking a geological epoch to respond, despite being the most text content packed player, and monies hasn't even read his first turn 12 update yet. And zerobear is starting to have his current turn become an Endless Sitcom as a stall desperately for time to let the others catch up.

    I'll probably get to you tomorrow whether everyone's responded or not. And, no relation.

    Also...zerobear? I can't tell if that was a hilarious autocorrect from your phone, or if it was a deliberate new nickname haha

    Ouch, Kaed. That hurts, and considering that I've averaged just under one PM to you per day since the start of November says interesting things about the natural dirtamancy of wherever you live.

    We do actually have ages for the Great Minds; their ages in turns are given in the back of one of the dead tree books as part of their profiles.
