Ask @Quidam_Asinus:

Which vidya are you currently playing? Which one is your all-time favorite?

I'm not playing much History right now, but my favorite game of all time is probably Morrowind.

if you would do something like gravity+soul would it increase your soul's "weight" also does a soul's density have anything to do with magic or the mind or what?

The gravity rune refers specifically to the physical force of gravity, which does not affect the soul or mind.
And yes, in a way, but density isn't really what I'd call it.

Is it possible to communicate with the spirits in Profectus' arm using nature magic? Would it make sense to do it during meditation? If Prof meditates as well, could Mik allow him to join the conversation?

It is in theory, with a sufficient understanding of Nature magic. Certainly not at Mik's rather amateurish level.
It would indeed make sense to do it during meditation.
And yes, with a high enough understanding of Nature Magic Mik could share the conversation and what he perceives with Profectus.

can any modern vatis even into necromancy?

Well I've heard that Mikhael Abdul-Hakim brought some faggot back from the dead, but those are just rumors.
Mik is one of the world's foremost necromancers.

can spirits climb rungs? could Best Cat become Top Dog?

Nope, the caste of a spirit is determined by its parent, its generation. However, caste does not necessarily determine power. Age does, and you can have very young spirits of a very high caste or very old spirits of a very low caste.

how difficult is it to change one's self-image in a purposefully controlled manner? I know it's been done, but is it a dead art, or are there texts/people/giant needle devices Mik could learn from?

It's pretty difficult to change your self-image. I mean, it happens naturally over time but it's far from an immediate thing. One of the reasons Water Vatis often escape wrinkles or other outward signs of aging is due to the fact they don't see themselves as wrinkled, and so when they heal themselves their skin is rejuvenated.
Often, to actively change your self image requires lengthy meditation. The system I think I'll use for it will be sort of like it's own school of elemental magic, with a Grandmaster being able to change their entire appearance on a whim and an Apprentice maybe able to alter their nose a little, and the shape of their eyes. Enough that someone they knew would still recognize them, but to a stranger or someone they've only met once or twice they'd be unidentifiable.
A novice wouldn't even be capable of that much. Maybe changing the color of their eyes or something of that sort. Cosmetic only, essentially.

so if one was envious of dragons or voibardians, could they take the spiritual equivalent of a penis pill to grow their souls heavier? how bad would this be for the body and the mind of the subject?

there are ways to increase the displacement one's soul has on the world around them and Mik has already undertaken them for the most part. Growing your vys pool basically makes your presence more influential on the world around you.
There are more extreme methods bit these run the risk of cracking or even shattering the shard, thus causing insanity or soul death.

what would have happened if you'd remembered to write in that write-in where Mik mentions the old, totally-not-a-lich artifact merchant to Sadik, who is also a fellow artifact merchant and totally not anything more than that, I swear?

I swar on me mum I'll write that-well actually never mind you might not get another opportunity.
I'll have it so that one of your companions asked Sadik about it, Profectus probably, and he'll tell you what was said.

other than a point of vys, was the Excidium of any practical use to Mik at whatsoever? I can imagine a few of those names are known either to us or people we've met (Rhynian constructs or Hiacian hiveminds) but it's not like that info would open up new opportunities as far as I can tell.

I'd you'd gone to Aleamond you could have followed it's directions (vague though they were) to discover some Cool Things(tm).

I consider myself a good drawfag, once I buy my new tablet (old one ded) do you want to make webcomic together with me? I really like the world of Mundus

Sure, I'd be down for something like that. Hop on the IRC during gametime if you want to exchange info and whatnot.

IF we hit 10 insanity, would you just start taking the very first suggestion as what the voices in his head told him to do? You've mentioned voices in Mikhael's head for a while now.

If you hit 10 insanity I'll switch perspective from Mik to one of his companions. You'll probably be forced to kill Mik, and if you hesitate or rolls go poorly Mik will kill the perspective character and I'll switch to another.

Do you too feel that gaining bonuses has become the main motivations of anons? Seems you can't go two updates without them asking if they get extra bonuses now or how to get them and almost pursuin them relentlessly

I do think that Anons are "bonus-seeking" but I'm pretty okay with it. I think it's at least partially my fault too. I mean, I've used bonuses as a way to tempt people into certain paths for quite a while now. My entire QM philosophy is basically "give people a rope and the motivation, they'll hang themselves of their own free will".

Dropping off the lore development pastebin from the chat for all you askfags who can't be bothered to join IRCabal master race. Feel free to add whatever disclaimer you feel necessary boss. http://pastebin.com/uTaXMPgD

Some people figured out some of the things I've been hinting at regarding the metaphysics of Banished Quest. Enjoy, everyone.

..you're not secretly running an evangelion style soul system and a greatly extrapolated cosmology on us, are you, Soma? Because so far plenty fits. And I think my eyes might explode if you are.

Not that I know of? I've never even watched Evangelion.

If you had to collaborate with another QM for a full length quest, who would it be and why?

For a full length quest... I think I could probably work something out with Hexer. I also wouldn't mind a collab with a drawfag of some sort. that could be fun.
