Evil plot twist, good plot twist

Post by Mark » Sun Nov 18, 2007 1:36 am

Want to inject some awesome into Lily's paths?

Kill Niji.

I'm sure every single one of you can tell me why this is a powerful twist idea. You can go any number of directions with it.

I like it; throw this in while on Lily's path and have the player became even more sympathetic and watch her affection swoon for you greatly so you can swoon her off her feet later.

Kinda done, for another path. We won't tell everyone who dies, but it'll be way more powerful than that.

Yes.

On page 238.

But yeah, we don't want ot play the death card too much; it's not something that you want ot jam into every path.

Huh, just read about Hana being an audiophile and it lead to another (not evil) idea. Nothing sounds better than a live performance, right? No headphones, no speakers, no lossless codec can ever replicate with perfect sonic exactness a sound heard live.

Has the MC ever had a hankering to learn an intrument? Or two? Or form a band?

Mark: High quality headphones and speakers can be, arguably, more capable than we have recorded music for commercial use. But regardless, yes, live music may be better than a recorded copy. However, recorded copies are perfect in their own way. In records of full orchestras, good recording studios will listen to every single last instrument in the entire orchestra to see if every single person is playing perfectly. Live concerts can be perfect, but this is rare. Also, if you want the live performance to be notably better than the recording, you need good instruments which will only be enjoyed by those with cultured tastes and a good music ear.

Well, at least a live performance is fun and a great way to impress.

You darn near made mah head 'splode. Congratulations! I guess I fail it?

But still, if the MC learned to play something classy rather well (or remembered how to play an instrument he gave up), it would be rather sexy for him to play it for the audiophile, wouldn't it? Just an idea, I don't know why I'm spending the time to back it up. I prefer people to take my ideas and run far, far away with them.

True story: I "commissioned" a certain work of art when I was a kid, never paid for it, and five years later I found it exactly as described on the interwebs. It freaked me out. :|

I agree. A decent live performance is much more enjoyable than a simple recording. But whether or not it's enjoyed probably depends on Hana's personality and her relationship with the player at that moment in time. The player just might end up making a fool of himself instead of doing any impressing.
If you paid attention, you probably would have realized that I was just being a little anal-retentive. >o>

I did realize. This anonymous has learned to take such things in stride. I really don't mind people's attitudes, I work around them. It's a helpful trait to have when you run a decently-large fansite for an unreleased MMO, or have managerial responsibilities at your RL job (lol, whut's that?). A couple AP-level Drama classes helps too. ;)

Anyhow, your point is valid. Please continue to elaborate. I'll try to pop in here from time to time with crazy/stupid ideas. :)
