    If I get bored enough, I'll check out the trailers. To be honest, I wasn't expecting anything interesting out of SE this year.

    Sad to say, I've been largely ignoring all of the KHIII news in the past few years. I'm pretty much done with the franchise I's afraid.

    That happens.

    Pretty much. I don't think there is anything wrong going too deep in. Who knows, maybe you'll like the cosmological aspect so much you'll reuse elements of it for future stories.

    Gotcha. Well I hope you can find a good solution for figuring out the mechanics.

    Is alchemy another force or simply based in real world science?

    I know the two rules I have in place for power balance comes from magic just being a serious energy burner both mentally and physically, so "normal" mages are limited by their physical limitations. The limits for reality warper really comes down to the imaginative limitations of the selected subjects that can use it. A more imaginative person may be able to tap into greater ability but be too physically weak to make it come to fruition, whereas the training regime for people with talent may limit their ability to comprehend anything beyond the four basic elements. The four higher elements are more concepts than physical forces, so it seems like a no-brainer some people, especially people well grounded in reality may have a more difficult time grasping them. In truth, you would have to be someone like Socrates who was physically buff and mentally open to be a real threat outside of the non-humans characters with magic. It probably says something that the only non-special magic user in the plot dies a quarter of the way into the plot.

    The source of magic in my world falls back into the cosmology of the setting, which becomes a big part of the plot in the later chapters. My issues stem from both he fact that magic is common place enough in the setting where people don't quite bat an eye to it, but is restricted for military and government purposes only and make it sound plausible. My other issue is that theoretically, the nature of the mechanics could make anyone a reality warper and I need to figure out more plausible solutions for the limitations of the resource. I have quite a few ideas now, but I need to write down the rules so I don't break them myself.

    Yeah, that's what the SB is for. Hammering out all of the details so you don't have to in the book proper. I need to explain how magic finally works and why only certain people have it, so I want to lay out the major mechanics in the SB so I can figure out an easy way to abridge it for a simple explanation.

    As I said, these books start small and then grow over time as you write more. The nice thing is that I often find the Story Bible will inspire me to write the main novel, so I often go back and forth between both. I'm actually thinking of starting back on the SB since my new chapter has me venturing into some uncharted territory with a character I rarely wrote, on the other hand, this chapter is also a bit of an info dump concerning certain metaphysical stuff that's been going on for a few chapters now and needs to be addressed. I figure I will do the full explanation in the SB and give an abridged version in the story proper. My main issue now is that I faintly remember writing this stuff down a few years ago in a notebook with the intention of transcribing it to the SB and now I can't remember what I did with it.

Part of your world

by Fynn on 06-06-2017 at 05:37 PM
So there's this nagging issue I've had for quite some time now. It's a pretty abstract issue but one I think is pretty interesting and perhaps even important to share nonetheless. For many reasons, it has only become more pronounced recently.

As some of you may know, I want to be a writer. I try to do as much writing as I can. I even do writing for a living, though as an SEO copywriter, it's not exactly that I have an opportunity to spread my creative wings as part of what keeps giving

On FFVII (part of my Fmarathon rant)

by Fynn on 11-23-2016 at 12:16 PM
Decided this is worthy of being a blog-post, since it turned out to be a much bigger rant than I expected and I'm not sure the marathon's audience is really there for that kind of stuff

So far, I can say that

Frustrations of the writerly sort

by Fynn on 07-01-2016 at 12:13 PM
So there's this thing I've been struggling for quite some time. I don't want to call it a "writer's block" because it kind of seems like an excuse for being lazy. And it usually doesn't last long. This is something that's been eating at me for a long time.

I just kinda feel that I can't write anymore.

I mean, I still write articles for the site sometimes and I write other texts at my work, but it seems like, creatively, I've dried up. I'll come up with ideas

On story expectations

by Fynn on 03-30-2016 at 12:57 PM
So this is kind of a general discussion, but the general rant I have is based on three popular 3DS RPGs: Bravely Default, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and Shin Megami Tensei IV. Sorry if this is chaotic, as I'm just writing this as it comes into my mind. Also, spoilers from the three games abound.

All of those games were very well received, though for different reasons. SMT is kind of here to serve as a neutral ground, as the evaluation of its story is pretty divided, whereas the consensus

Character Appreciation: Junpei Iori

by Fynn on 03-30-2016 at 11:37 AM
This is in no way an idea I stole from Pumpkin, no siree.


Junpei Iori is a character from the Persona franchise. He first appears in Persona 3 and all of its subsequent releases as a playable party member. He becomes a social link character as well in the female path of Persona 3 Portable, though he isn't date-able. He is also playable in
