    You said here that Hashan would get "some tools to aide in a stronger factional identity." Did Hashan already miss the boat on this, or is it yet to come?
    Part of it has happened, part of it is still to come!

    Do you have any plans to adjust the effectiveness of Veils in defensive scenarios (ie being forced to fight a team with veils when your team has none, particularly in city defenses)?

    Is there a current ballpark ETA for the arrival of one or both Targossian Houses?

    Someone earlier mentioned changes in weaponry, would this be in regards to making larger, two-handed weapons such as warhammers, halberds, and bastard swords more than just decorative or behead weapons?

    Also, in regards to Sefaring (yes, you should have expected this) are there any new things planned whether events or ways to make seafaring more fun an enjoyable?

    Addtiionally, now that High Clans can claim org ships, who do I have to pimp Kinilan out to in order to get totems claimable by High Clans as well? Thanks for any information!
    1) That's the plan, yes.
    2) Yes, we've got some fun events coming up in the near future, and we're paying close attention to the seafaring suggestion thread here on the forums. We'd love more people using and enjoying the ship/seafaring system, and making it more enjoyable and accessible is definitely one of our goals.
    3) I think pimping Kinilan out would be detrimental to the cause. In all seriousness, there are always going to be some inequality between High Clans and other more major organisations (Cities and Houses). We'll keep it in mind though!

    I suppose it's not really a question and I understand that it does hugely depend on volunteer time, but I have to say that I am really jealous of the Mayaween events in Eleusis and most prominently the customisable painting stuff. 

    Would more customisable things (that don't require a 200cr investment) be something that admin might look into implementing more of? Or maybe at least as promotions? (similar things include paintings in Zanzibaar, statues in Lothos, burgers in Ashtan..) I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that that painting denizen got me more excited than any of the recent Shop of Wonders items, or winning humgii races!

    Alternatively, are there any plans for implementing more crafting-type licenses in the relatively near future?

    If you don't mind me asking, what exactly does multi-classing entail and how will it affect House membership? As an example, can you combine Chivalry with Occultism to get "chaos knights", etc?
    http://forums.achaea.com/discussion/1595/multi-classing/p1 That scenario seems to be pretty well covered by Sarapis' first bullet there.
    Yep! Gold star for Eld!

    1) No current plans, no.
    2) As I mentioned earlier in the thread, once the new intro/post intro stuff is live, getting city novicehood and the new houses in for Targossas is the first priority. The team is hard at work getting everything ready (things like building house halls etc.) so we can have them out as soon as humanly (divinely?) possible.

    ETA on tradeskill split (I'm assuming more than 6 months to a year?) and what kind of new crafting skills being considered?

    We celebrate Halloween and Christmas in Achaea. Do you think it's possible/is it already on the agenda for mini holiday 'events' for these two occasions to be done to better integrate them in the game?

    1) Any plans on making synthesizing the metals not be such a drag? 2 per synthesis takes so long. :-w

    2) If a boon given to you by the dear departed Clementius, was stripped away. You issued yourself and were told: "We'll see what we can do". Months go by and nothing has happened. What would want done? (Yes, I'm totally still bitter about being removed from HELP NAMECHANGE) 

    3) Are you still waiting for me to decide what to do with that damn fireworks wand I accidentally won? I'm sorry. I can't decide what I want to do with it. :-/

    4) What Halloween candy do/did you hope for most? :-bd

    5) You totally ignored my comment about how the maritime ledger seemed overpriced. /:)

    Hmm.. If you cannot give an exact timeframe that is okay!  But, are we talking Houses in Targossas by Thanksgiving, or closer to Logosmas? Thanks! I'm so excited and I'm sure you're sick of answering Targossas House questions but I'm just jazzed about it. And yeah, I know the novice system has to settle in first. Which is understandable if that pushes back the Houses a bit

    1) The time it takes to develop the 11 new skills and related abilities!
    2) New crafting / trade skills you'll have to wait and see (at least until they're a little further finalised)
    3) They're explained via the Dance of the Vault (HELP DANCE OF THE VAULT) already!

    In general, we're not going to give any kind of specific time estimates I'm afraid! "When it's done" is the real answer.

    1) Jester dex answered

    2) High Clan totems: ETA?

    3) Once upon forever ago, Tecton said He wanted to do a weapons overhaul. Still in the cards and when in relation to the Multi-class timeline?

    4) IDEA: Rename the forum 'Agree' button to 'Sagenod'

    5) Fwoodlebapps. Respond as appropriate.

    Giving an accurate estimate is impossible due to Hofstadter's law: It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law.

    Will there possibly be any new classes in the future? I always thought a class that was more based around archery would be pretty cool. I remember on the IRE site there was an article with lots of  comments for new class ideas, and there were a lot of really neat ones there, too.

    Indeed there is, nothing planned for any time in the near future though. With splitting tradeskills off from class skills, we'll see some new and interesting dynamics in classes without necessarily adding entirely new ones.

    A butterfly? Where? Is it the elusive Regent butterfly?
    Also, by any chance would that be related to the Monarch and/or Viceroy butterflies?

    @Ourania- See, it's not just a title. *hope*
