Kim is too stressed at the time, and there is no word on when the Internet of Ginevra will be enabled...
Well maybe they'll return when they're in a happier mood?

There's a difference between fiction for the sake of fiction and great fiction. Anyone can make the former, but it takes the know-how on how to simulate life effectively in order for someone to create the latter.

I don't want details for the sake of there being details. Even in real life, things always have a reason, even if the thing in question is mundane or the reason behind it small. That, and there are details I want for the game which I don't want anything to contradict. If you have a problem with that, remember, my rulings as the game master are final, no matter how much everyone else complains.

Don't get me wrong, I still want the game to be in the best interest of everyone, but what's the point of spoilering everyone if they're not behaving in a disciplined manner? (Being spoiled is a reward for good behavior, not a right.)
Still, these characters in the RPG are from all over the place. Pteri's character was beautifully crafted, but then you just had to take the dump out on him because it doesn't work due to Karjamian physics and what not. It's FICTION, it's not supposed to be realistic, if you want a sense of realism try non-fiction then.

I'm not aiming for realism, for if that was true, among other things, I wouldn't have keyblades in my game. What I'm instead aiming for is believability, something you can't just deny. It's the work's believability that makes it enjoyable. Believability is a crucial part of the illusion of life, something all fiction strive for (whether their creators know this or not). Believability and realism are not the same thing, especially since the latter can actually hinder the former when done wrong. (Go see "if [your favorite work] was realistic" for examples.)

Besides, if I really was aiming for realism, I wouldn't had denied his character a second Karjamian Dimension Tunnel Device since realism dictates that's possible. (The real reason why I've denied it is because it goes against the team-based dynamic I had in mind for the game.)

Meh, I've been quite busy lately and I don't have a whole lot of motivation, you guys can go on without me, I might use the character for something else.

Besides, I am incredibly undisciplined and badly behaved and I'm damn proud of it so I'd probably just ruin the game anyway  ;)

Also, Kushagra, something can be beautifully written and still not live up to its believability. That is why I don't judge fiction by its aesthetics alone.

Fun fact: Pierre's character is absolutely barebones with very little prose written for his Bio, yet I still allowed him into the game since I saw potential in his character. The fact that it's absolutely barebones actually seems to be working in his favor as it means he could just behave as if the character was himself.

But it's still Fiction. Nothing's supposed to be believable though, right? I mean, look at all the crazy stories on the internet. They're all fiction, nothing you wouldn't believe to be making sense, but still fantastic.

By believable, I don't mean whether or not you know something is fact or fiction. When I said "believable", I meant that the story immerses us so much into the story, it's as if not only have we been transported into the world in question, we're witnessing the story foretold by the piece of fiction first-hand.

It's for this reason why Pokémon is so popular, why someone went through the crazy motion of actually renaming themselves to "Optimus Prime", why people love pretending to be ponies (looks at Aurora Dash/Pteriforever), etc. It's the entire reason fandoms exist in the first place.

By believable, I don't mean the creation of actual life because that's impossible. Rather, when I said "believable", I mean creating a very convincing illusion of life, the very phenomenon I've explained within this post. This isn't something one can merely dismiss. Without a convincing illusion of life, we can't get into the fiction, and without being able to get into fiction, we wouldn't be able to enjoy them.

Founder of the Vresun and Symforá forums. Also still alive. So, not dead.

Well there's people called "Herp Derp" so I've pretty much given up on humanity naming their future generations now.

He did it to himself, you know. I said "rename", not "named by their parents".

No, I'm not joking, someone's name was Saad Maan (named by his parents) and he had a news thing going on where he looks so miserable. He really was a Saad Maan.
