Oh I like this, this could be fun. :P

For everyone still in the city: What season do you think would be best to hold the fishing festival in?

Calling all current and former residents of Zeltiva!

Postby Kendall Saarinen on September 28th, 2011, 7:45 pm

I'm thinking summer or spring. Summer would be nice since the city will be nice and populated with sailors and other people. Spring would also be nice because it could the whole thing of celebrating the water thawing and people coming to the city.

Just my two mizas!

Both great ideas, I'm leaning towards summer. That way everything is in full swing and food is as pleaniful as it is going to be. Cause what fun is a festival without lots of yummy food?

I was thinking either summer or fall myself, so summer sounds fine for me.

Oh, and what do you think about there being a temple to Eyris in Zeltiva as well? Given the city's scholarly nature, it seems fitting that there should be some show of devotion to the goddess of wisdom. I could definitely imagine the temple being especially crowded on exam days, not to mention when the professors are up for tenure review! I also was thinking that a temple to Zulrav would also be nice, considering sailors must respect and fear the wind and weather just as much as the waves when they're out to sea, but that would probably give Zeltiva more temples than they could handle.

Thank you all for your wonderful feedback, I promise everything is being taken into consideration. :)

I have one more question for everyone. Im sure we can all agree we want to see more done with the university, but I am but one women and thinking every possible class is a daunting task to say the least! :D my question to everyone is, what classes do you want to see or need? Thanks a bunch.

I know when Kendall went to the uni he took classes on literature, languages, culture, and the Mizaharian Pantheon (along with other things I'm sure).

Mathematics, history, politics, stuff like that would be good.

Another idea for Tiva town! It would be great if we had stables. I know Kendall had a horse when he lived in Zeltiva and as of right now she is just floating around in the air when he is not using her in flashbacks.

There should be weapon training classes or something along those lines... Jaron would love to get on that.

Oh yeah!

Medicine, herbal/botany, some combat classes would be good...

Im thinking since the university is such an important aspect of zeltiva, maybe more can be done to provide information about it. Here are my humble suggestions:
1) Provide more details on courses available and things like semester structure, syllabus/curriculum, exam/assessment structure that sort of thing
2) Implement some sort of alumni system similar to modern universities. We could brainstorm what this membership entails
3) Structure the certificates of completion, namely how to get one and what it means to get one (for eg maybe submit x course threads over x duration with x skills culminating in a modded final year exam/project?)
4) Perhaps the Uni could begin to gain some sort of affiliation with other institutes like Denval's Academy or Alvadas' Asylum. It could recognize certain 'module credits' (ie course threads) done there that can contribute to its degree requirements. Or maybe (depending on time of the year) offer courses in affiliated schools usually not provided, and in exchange allowing students to take alternate course credits if the module was available (ie if a denval instructor happened to be in zeltiva a martial arts student can choose to take a denvali unarmed course as one of his course threads
5) Finally, to outline what exactly is a certificate of completion. Maybe make several tiers of completion (similar to honors, bachelor, major, minor, etc) and the requirements and benefits of having these certificates. (higher pay/more respect? If it works in the real world it should logically work here too)
NOTICE: I am currently mostly inactive til August. As such, guild activities are temporarily halted (watch out for major revamps, changes and organizations when I'm back in full force). Any activity with Eri will be rather slow as well, but I am slowly readjusting back to "Mizahar life", so to speak, so do PM me if we have a thread that I left hanging and we'll talk.
