Re: Female, or male?

Similarly, I always assume that people who don't have avatars are just faceless masses and it really breaks up the association. It's very odd when you think about it. I certainly don't have any problem with written books, but when you expect a visual representation and don't get one on forums, my m...

Re: Fictional ranks - help please

Uhh haha. I'm so not good at this. >.< Well the thought was that for each rank there would be multiple units commanded by a leader (multiple leaders for each rank). Then there would be some sort of mission system that each leader would recieve missions/orders for their unit from. Higher-ranked units...

Re: Fictional ranks - help please

Hmm.. this got rather confusing. ^^' But I'm glad for all the feedback. I didn't state this clearly but I've already decided on the number of ranks. There'll be one leader, then one person directly under him like a sort of aide/vice-leader. Then there are ranks 1-5, making the total number seven. An...

Re: Fictional ranks - help please

@Wintermoon: I skimmed trough that page quite a while ago (it was then I learned of the multiple meanings), but thank you anyway. Here's something I might use.. I translated various words into latin using an online translator and ended up with this, the meanings that were listed are in brackets. :p ...

Re: Fictional ranks - help please

Well the setting can probably be described as mixed. Weapons range from magic swords to guns. There are no huge spells or elves though. As for the rest.. think something around present day, just that some areas are a bit further developed and others less. ..sorry for being vague, but I don't think i...

Re: Fictional ranks - help please

Ah, yes the 'elite'. I used it since this only is a temporary solution, and I needed something to set the top rank apart. I'm fully aware it doesn't make sense given my reasoning. To be honest, I'm not very knowledgeable of the real-life military (and probably never will be) and I don't want to use ...

Fictional ranks - help please

I'm currently working on a visual novel that is set in a fictional military. The thing is, I don't know what to call the different ranks.. Currently I just have: Elite, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th. And leaders for each group. Which is rather confusing. I've been thinking about some possible solutions...

Re: Kensai

Ooh, that sounds interesting.

I liked the small bit of dialogue, certainy Phoenix Wright-esque and it makes me hungry for more.

Re: Blue Moon

Hm, well it does sound like an interesting premise for a story. I'll certainly give this a shot once it's done.

Re: Art Dumpage! Show your art ^^

Sapphire Dragon: Nice work, I like it. uluu: I really like the concept of the character (and the dress is pretty!). You ought to add some texture/shadows to the plants though. Eccentrix: Cool picture. Did you make the background as well? Edit: Monele, that newest character looks really cute, with he...

Re: Changing between POVs in a visual novel

Thanks for the replies!

Different colored textboxes/text and character pictures sound like a good idea. I want to make the change obvious so it won't be confusing.

Re: Raidaa no Asahi

I played this and liked it. As for the fanservice so many have been talking about, I didn't really care much since it just were a few lines anyway - I'm glad there weren't fanservice cgs though. The character portraits were very cute, as were the girls themselves. I was a bit disappointed when I saw...

Changing between POVs in a visual novel

Currently I'm planning a visual novel. In it I plan to change between different points of view (or rather, I feel that the story requires it). However, I'm not sure what is the best way to do it. Ways I'm thinking to do it: -Have a set of characters that narrate and switch between them (switch is in...

Re: Love in mainstream video games

MMOS: Until the day spambots show up in online games? I think that day passed.. a while ago. Anyways, I don't think much of love in MMOS. Most of the time there is no fictional character to fall for since people don't roleplay but just kill enemies while they chat about everyday stuff. An exception ...

Re: Art Dumpage! Show your art ^^

A pic of one of my characters.. I tried a different way of coloring than usual and did my lineart at a higher resolution (because I can now - computer with more ram woot). http://alet-maon.deviantart.com/art/Rachelle-Scarrett-original-80503395 Erm. Anyways, opinions would be very much appreciated. -...
