Ask @aliceindissonance:

I just bought the fault milestone artbook in the sekai project shop. It was my first time buying online and i don't know much about shipping. Would you happen to know how long it would take for the items to be shipped? Even a rough estimate would do.

I apologize for not getting back to this sooner. I hope that you have received your art book by now.
Please note though, that ALICE IN DISSONANCE has no oversight on how merchandise gets handled at Sekai Project. If you have any questions please contact them directly. Thanks!

Please thank Sekai Project as they are handling all merch related stuff! They've been killing it this holiday season. There's a lot of hard work that goes into physical merch so if you like what SP is doing, make sure to drop them a line of appreciation~!

In one Patreon post the idea of an anime was brought up. Was this just a random bubbly thought or have there already been made some miniscule efforts towards expanding into other areas of media? How hard can it be for a doujin group to get their works known better?

I'm struggling to see if this is even a serious question because of your curiously rude tone. Is there intent of malice here or are you just terrible with words?
If you care for a real answer from us maybe you should try again.

In your recent post, you mentioned that there is still a lot of work to be put into STP. Could you elaborate a bit on the degree of completion of STP, and perhaps give a rough estimate of how much time the remaining work will take?

We will soon with the proper teaser site and everything. Please hold on just a tab bit longer as we really need to choose our words carefully to make sure we can deliver what we promise this time since we had to delay it once already.

Is there any well known form of forbidden manakravte in the fault world?

Put it this way: this is sort of like asking "are there any forbidden science in our world?".
If so what do you think of is a well known "forbidden science?" Human cloning? Stem cell research? Designer babies and DNA manipulations like CRISPR? Body augmentation? Nuclear/chemical powers and weapons?
You have to think now, what makes some of these things "forbidden"? Usually it's a moral issue that stems from some sort of religion or a rule that has been collectively agreed upon by some form of organization. This means what is forbidden can easily change depending on what country or group of people you are asking on behalf of.
So, who's perspective are you asking for?
The simple answer is: of course. There are many different folks in the world of fault and unsurprisingly, they ban things in the name of justice just like we do here.
But I have a feeling that's not what you are asking. I'm guessing you're asking a more romantic question about some ancient kravte that can awaken a fault version of Cthulhu; rumored to doom the world. No. First of all, manakravting is a relatively new form of human advancement and is thus quite secular in nature; It is an advancement that followed fault's world version of the Age of Enlightenment and that's only centric to the Alliance. When Sanne Ajrizdan folks hear the term "manakravete" they don't associate it with any sort of spiritualism or Mysticism.
More on this later when the story calls for it.

Just curious, but do any of the fault characters have birthdays? Or does the fault universe have a totally different calendar system compared to our universe's?

You forget that it's only recently that we in our world have (somewhat) agreed on a universal concept of time (mostly because trains needed to coordinate schedules in the Western world). Even in our world today in 2016 there are cultures that have no concrete concept of time and they live day to day according to how the sun is positioned in the sky. As such the Alliance has it's own measurement of time where as other parts of the world count time differently.
More accurately though, their planet takes 23.976 hours (in our worlds time) to complete 1 cycle and takes 463 days to rotate once around their sun.
Characters of course have birthdays by the virtue of them existing but every country celebrates (or doesn't celebrate) aging differently.
More on this later when it's relevant to the story.

I noticed something while reading ms2a. When Rhegan/Selphy and Rune meetup with Rupika to "negotiate" Rupika greets them with vils instead of viss as it would be in the encyclopedia. Noticing the lovely world number, would it be safe to assume there is something more to this or well, just a mistake.

Not a mistake. Generational differences. More on this later.

When you write, do you normally write in a stript/screenplay format or a story/narrative format???

Technically speaking neither.... but it's much closer to screenplay.
Here's the first 33 lines of chapter 2 of ms2a.
# chapter2 first world order
#港町(BG: サセアリー)。夜
【セルフィーネ】「おなかへったああああああああああああああああああああ!!!」
【リトナ】「いや、もう…ね」
船上でのぎこちない雰囲気が疲労に大きく加担した。
人前では虚勢を張っているが、実はかなり体にキテいる。
今回ばかりは色々と無理をしすぎたかもしれない。
【ルーン】「………」
#_背景を見せる。サセアリー商店街
【リトナ】「…ん?どうしたルーン?」
【ルーン】「…………」
【ルーン】「新しい…町」
【ルーン】「新しい…国…!!」
【ルーン】「見てください…せるちゃん…リトナさん」
【ルーン】「異世界が…」
【ルーン】「広がってます…」
【リトナ】「…………」
そうか。
一生カディアから出ることがないと思っていたんだものな。
感慨深いものがあって当たり前か。
【ルーン】「綺麗な港町…素敵です…」
【リトナ】「しかし、夜なのに凄い活気だな」
もう日が落ちてかなり時間が経っているのに、港は大勢の人で溢れ返っていた。
近くで催し物でもやっているのだろうか。
【リトナ】「二人共…はぐれないように気をつけてくださいね」
今度こそセディメントを手に入れて、セルフィーネ様との通信ラインを張り直さなければ。
【リトナ】「ルーンともはぐれてしまった場合コミュニケーションを取れるようにしたいな…」
【リトナ】「(しかしマナを使えないとどうすることも出来ないな…)」
【ルーン】「あ、それならですね…えっと、兄さんから貰った…」
ルーンが持ち物から黒光りする長方形の箱を取り出した。
#な)トランシーバーの描写修正忘れずに。

Finally bought the dlc's, how to open them? :(

Btw, for the sake of reference. If you purchased the Fault DLCs (Art book and OST) and you want to access them directly, you can find them via:
[Easy way via Steam]
Right click the respective game in the library --> Properties --> Local files --> Browse local files
[Direct folders in Windows]
Your Steam/Steam Library folder --> SteamApps --> common --> faultms1 (artbook) / faultms2a (OST)

サンアリズタ語の「お誕生日おめでとうございます」の書き方はなんでしょうか?

Arna ido`vitaDies serio!
アールンナ・ イド`ヴィタディエス・セリオ!
直訳:理想的な『生まれた日』をお過ごし下さい
意訳:よい誕生日をお過ごしください!(とてもフォーマル)
カジュアル:Arn vitaDies serio! (誕生日おめでとう!)
Arnaは敬語でフォーマル。Arnでaを落とすとカジュアルになります。
また、idoは『理想』と似た言葉。
Arna ido`vitaDies serio! は非常にフォーマルな言葉 です。
もうちょっと汎用性を高めるなら『ido'』を落とし、『Arna vitaDies serio!』にすると、目上の人に使う分にも、友人に使う分にもOKになります。
