I see. Too bad then. Do take care and rest ~
Talking about CiV, since it seems that a lot of peoples around here have been playing it, even outside of the usual group we form. How about we do a big /seacats/ CiV game ? The biggest problem would be getting everyone around at the same time, especially with the time differences and all.
So, is anyone interested ?

I'd like to play a big /seacats/ game as long as we can manage the connection problems~

What might work better is doing it via something like Giant Multi-player Robot, which is basically like you can play your turn at any time and pass it into the next person~ It probably has less connection problems too~ Only problems I foresee is some people getting lazy about taking their turns and holding everyone up~

I didn't know about that thing, just checked it out and it might be useful, especially if the connection problems happen again, but I do think that if we could do it normally it would be best. But it's at least a backup solution.

The road to proper writing is a long and arduous one. I was so confident I was getting close, then Rosa smashed that. Aiaiaiai... oh well. I'm probably calling quits on my VN endeavours after this and concentrate on real writing, so I do want to make this a pretty darn good one.

It looks like a difficult path, especially with all the differences in style. Personally I think you can add a few "huh"s and other kind of additional sentences if they add value to the conversation. If that MC guy was a shy guy he would probably stutter or at least think twice what do he says.

I've already shared my thoughts on the matter, but to improve your writing the best way really is to reread yourself and analyze every inch of what you wrote to make it better, at least, in term of pure writing, and it ultimately becomes an habit.

The girl he's talking to is shy. The "huh's" all come from her, too, and she's pre-occupied during the conversation checking on her phone. I guess that the "huh's" can really drag the conversation out so I'm hunkey-dorey okay with removing them.

In the end, though, I don't want to fuss over perfection too much; At the end of the day, I want to write to the best of my ability, not continuously brush up and get stuck in forever revisions.

It was during the summer of a couple years ago when it happened. I was in the basement, browsing the internet with the familiar roaring of the fans indicating that my high-end monster of a PC was on and running. I was posting on a forum I remember nothing about, when, for some reason, the page refused to load. I tried a different one from my favorites, but I was stuck with the loading symbol Firefox showed when it claimed it was working to bring up the web address. After getting an error for that page as well, Windows XP flat out told me the connection was broken, to which I responded with a sigh and shrugged it off. The connection sometimes goes down without warning, so I figured I just had to wait for it to be restored. A minute later, though, the computer powered down with a click as the fans went silent, and the entire house went dark.
No longer masked by the loud humming sound, I could hear the culprit responsible for interrupting my computer time beating against the house like a stream of marbles hitting glass, the scene outside the tiny window above my head tinged a pale greenish yellow and as blurry as frosted glass. Now, I’d been in hailstorms before, but this was unlike anything I’d ever encountered in my lifetime, as the deafening barrage assaulted the flimsy glass as though shot at by a firing squad that had been armed with assault rifles, and my house was to be executed for the unforgivable crime of standing between me and a concussive demise. The savage winds screamed at just a few octaves short of what a dog whistle would probably sound like, which indicated a tornado was out there, too, and hurled the barrage of icy pebbles with more ferocity than anything I’d witnessed myself. Not content with blasting my house with frozen ice, there’s a freakin’ tornado wreaking havoc out there in the middle of summer? Why does Mother Nature hate me so much right now? I mean, I recycle and I don’t litter; what do you want me to do, save the whales?
For the first time in my life, I was terrified. I hunched back in my chair and weighed the decision of whether or not I could risk running to a safer section of the basement that my paranoid mind thought would be safer than one with a tiny, ceiling-high window. And it was at this time that the part of my mind that controlled whatever sounds or imagery were most prominently going through my head showed that it missed the memo that said “THERE’S A GODDAMN TORNADO/HAILSTORM OUTSIDE, PLAY SOMETHING DRAMATIC”. So rather than some fitting music that stressed the urgency of the situation, as you’d see in a movie, I heard a peppy, upbeat song in a foreign language that I didn’t really understand. It’s deeply embarrassing to consider that your final thoughts would be centered around how some cutesy synthesized pop song was playing in your head before you died, despite the chaotic cascade of ice outside. I mean, come on, part-of-my-mind-that-plays-music, couldn’t you play something with a powerful and ominous orchestra instead, like “Ride of the Valkyries” or maybe that song from Phantasia? I actually tried to argue with this part of my mind for a while over this, completely forgetting about the situation at hand. But it stubbornly refused to listen to me, calling out nonsense words like “hau” and “nano desu” to cut me off every time I tried to say something and wouldn’t let me finish a single statement. Eventually I just sighed and let the silly song played on.
For whatever reason, I got up, threw open the flimsy wooden door that separated the small room from the rest of the basement, and began my search for a “safer” shelter as the girl sang louder, mocking my defeat. I could just make out some shapes through the darkness, one of which was an open umbrella, with lots of holes and tears in it, sitting on the floor, with what appeared to be a tail sticking out of it. My cat, Johnnie, had followed his instincts to hide during this kind of frightening weather, but he picked a terrible place to hide like an ostrich burying its head in the sand. I couldn’t bring myself to leave him like that, no matter how fierce the storm or how annoying the repeated “nano desu” phrase got. I rushed over as the hailstorm upped the frequency and force of the chilly cacophony that battered my home and chorus started singing “la la la.” The winds no longer howled so much as screamed, doing all that it could to break my resolve, further solidifying my belief that Mother Nature hates me, as does my mental music box.
I bent down to the ground to scoop up the cowardly kitty, who clung to me for dear life and stared at me with wide-eyed terror. His claws dug into my shirt and broke the skin, but I couldn’t leave him there and let something happened to him while I was wandering aimlessly through the heavily windowed areas upstairs. The only safe/tiny windowless place I could think of was the bathroom, so I darted in, shut the door behind me, held the cat tightly, and hoped the storm would pass without incident, and that the girl would stop saying “hau” already, as we waited in pitch-black darkness. Johnnie didn’t seem to care for it, and jumped out of my arms so he could huddle behind the toilet. So not only was there no heartwarming moment, but the entire ordeal was still overshadowed by a whiny girl singing “nano desu.”
In retrospect, the experience would have made a terrible movie: the music choice sucked, the script was crap, the actors couldn’t cooperate, and the set designers had no sense of scale or placement, which made the plot look forced and any threat of danger unrealistic. On the bright side, though, at least the special effects were award-worthy.

It was during the summer of a couple years ago when it happened. I was in the basement, browsing the internet with the familiar roaring of the fans indicating that my high-end monster of a PC was on and running.

That type of modular doing, which is in this most delightful example, a form of literary expression as a narrative trickery on the described occurring happenings, is truly, as you have bravely and rightly stated solely a form of garnishment on the literary matter, it is, as a form of a godly irony, the cause of my particular stroke of positive attention and joy towards the aforementioned subject wrote by our fellow comrade.

I strongly disagree.

Well, there are people who will tell you 'it wasn't a mystery' anyway.

The first day of episode 1 is really rushed. I didn't notice before, but the kind of detail you get in episode 1 isn't present even in 2. 1 might be my favorite episode. But it couldn't just continue like that, you'd repeat the same content.

The direction Battler's reason takes in 2 seems to be a step back from his reasoning in episode 1, as well. Originally, he'd throw away crazy reasoning without even being prompted. The chessboard thinking aspect is interesting as well. Throughout 1 and 2, it's made very clear to the reader that Beatrice does not make optimum moves, and since you won't be able to read her that way, chessboard thinking can't work. So, in order to understand her moves, you have to understand her first. You need to know why she'll be satisfied no matter what the dice result is, as Bernkastel puts it.

It seems to me that you really could have solved the mystery with just episodes 1 and 2. The information is there. It's just extremely difficult to do so.

It's not that I can't, but that I won't.

 
At this point, all the masters Genji would serve are already gone. Kinzo is dead, Yasu is dead, Rosa forced him to give up his key and therefore nullified his position. As we know, he appears to Battler to take him to Kinzo and Beatrice, in order to have everything explained. Of course, that can't happen. While he knows the people responsible are dead (aside from the accomplice Rosa), he still says Battler will die. He's referring to the bomb, of course.

So I guess what happens is that Genji explains everything about his deceased masters and their plans to Battler in the half hour before the bomb explodes. He could probably save Battler and himself during this time, but I guess he doesn't want to undo Yasu's work.

Or that's what's convenient for Yasu's letter, anyway.

But I wonder if the part with Rosa meeting the Kuwadorian Beatrice was made up for episode 3? There are parts in episode 2 that you could argue refer to that, but there's another explanation given.

Well, there's one part where it looks like Rosa might be troubled my a memory about Beatrice. However, if that's the case, she suppressed the memory and really had to think before she stumbled upon it. That doesn't seem like the case when she blurts in out in episode 3.

It's not like it really matters in the end. She was just a device to show the child existed. I just think, however, that Rosa could become an interesting character thanks to that experience. If Yasu physically resembled her mother, especially since she was also her half-sister, would Rosa be disturbed by that as she was hired? Or as she aged?

hmmm In my opinion I think that Kinzo become dissapointed with his children, so he set the epitaph to call Yasu. after Yasu became "Beatrice"
Kinzo tasked her with a final test
Make the whole family find the location of the bomb.
if they couldn't that would prove that they are incompetent
and Kinzo could die in peace.

I planned to use that idea in a gameboard of my own once. Along with the fact that, if Rosa received the same phone call as Natsuhi about 19 years ago, could she react in a similar way, remembering her experience?

And would she suspect Shannon after that phone call?

I wouldn't agree. They were his children from an arranged marriage, and he probably never cared about them to begin with. He set up the epitaph hoping Beatrice would be revived, and it seems that he died shortly after she did. Because all he wanted to do was apologize to her. Maybe that's the only reason he had to stay alive.

Actually, that reminds me of another screenshot I should take.
