Re: Crane Clan Letter

"male background characters die too" is not really a counterpoint to the argument though.

By the way, how often do male background characters serve a similar role to female protagonists, as a way of comparison? Wanna bet?

Re: Another Way - Proposals for Alternate Story Paths

I suppose I should write my proposal according to the new guidelines. Unfortunately, I'll need a day or so as I am a bit pressed for time.

Re: Another Way - Proposals for Alternate Story Paths

Shinichi is, by his own admission, just a student. He has so much to learn still, maybe he should get a copy of "Failure - My Sensei." I heard it's really good.

Re: Spring 2015 Kotei Fiction - Day 4

What I find interesting is that this choice to "unfriendly save" turned out to not actually steal the icon, just to damage it slightly. I wonder if Shinichi also nicked something from the tombs that we can use? Cranes that damage artwork seems out of character, I agree. But if they do, it ...

Re: Spring 2015 Kotei Fiction - Day 2

I am happiest with the thing that came before the duel; regardless of execution, it shows that the story team has understood that the Crane need to be portrayed as working on reestablishing a connection with the Emperor. Well, it seems we're getting out of the doghouse. About time.
