Also, ROMCH, I think the sidequests were a good idea, but I might add or remove a couple.


I was thinking of adding a plot thing where everyone gets separated in a dungeon (or across Morbo. Blargh), forcing characters to cooperate who don't normally interact very much. Good for character development and/or great one-liners. Thoughts?
I'm not removing any sidequests as they are other pitstoppers past and present I swear to whatever.
I might add jack though.

Hey, at least you don't have you actually deal with how to make them work in the game. :V

This sounds like a good idea. I am for it.

It's probably best to be flexible, especially since the state of the game makes it possible that such connections won't actually exist. In the context of the game.

The old RPG has the weird Dream Mage thing, with different elements that use weird attack and defense stats, based off of emotions. So...you can either keep the emote schtick or go for something else.

That's entirely within my power, especially with Skill Core (since I can have HP/MP costs exactly equal to what's going to be restored ), but I'm curious as to who would use each.

I'd prefer "everyone" to not be an option, because I'm already setting it up such that every unit has their own skill command and I'd hate to have to redo the same skill ten times y u so negative? (or have to remerge the skill lists, which isn't a problem because I only actually made three so far but it's still work)

When I brought them up I was mainly referring to Truth so the player could convert points into moves they wanted to use more. But I guess you could give the HP to MP skill to characters that have a lot of MP consumption.

Alright, I don't care what else you do with me, the medic, just give me one decent attack. Exactly one. No more, no less.

Does this work?:

It's a completely standard physical attack with no frills added, except for the chance to stun.

(Note from Ed. - after much deliberating, it was decided that the monster's state resistance to stun should be factored in, because it would be...incredibly broken otherwise.)

On a completely unrelated note (read: it's actually somewhat vaguely related), I did figure out how to do Lux's status shit.

I still don't want to do it. I swear to whatever.

No.
y u so negative?

Do you have any suggestions, or am I going to have to trial and error this?

About 1/3 of the way done with the script for chapter one. Blargh.

With the way the script/plot is looking so far, it's going to be really, really hard to include all of the sidequests. The pace picks up quickly, and not much time is spent in one location for an extended period of time. There's only backtracking for plot-related reasons once or twice, and I'm really not sure about the 'twice'.

sidequests usually involve backtracking to begin with, so that's not an issue.
I still refuse to remove any, but I will edit them to fit the new plot, although I am NOT happy.
