    Fall of Spira Comments Thread

    Hello one and all,

    I was looking through this part of the forum and I realised most if not all media posted here usually also feature a separate comments thread for the readers to discuss what they've read. As one of my main purposes for having this old RP uploaded here is to allow current RPers for the Brave New World RP to see where the Exigo storyline had originated, it was probably even more important for me to have this comments thread. ^_^;;; Sorry for not doing that until now.

    Right, so for the inaugural post of this thread I should explain a few things about the minor details some of you might have noticed about the Fall of Spira RP.

    When we started out, the structure of posts usually followed a bold and centered character name and proceeded into the post. We'd done away with OOC and BIC tags by this point, separating those parts into a discussion thread in a different sub-forum. However, one of the RPers, River, who played the role of Cyan, created a tag for himself. After creating one for haboo's character of Nikki, a few of the other RPers, myself included, decided to follow suit. However, it wasn't all of us. That's why some of the posts have graphical tags while others still use their character names.

    Speaking of those character name headers, each of them was coloured to match the designated colour for their speaking voice. We'd added that system in order to make it easier to distinguish between characters during dialogue. As you might have noticed, though, my character of Mishka did not have a colour. That's is on account of my relegating the character to a voiced NPC role at the start of this RP. At this point in time, the RPers were only allowed a single character to portray and my actual character was Iezak. However, as time went on, Mishka became more important and you'll see in future posts that I would give her a colour.

    I think this should suffice for now. Of course, should you have anything to discuss, this thread is now here for you to do so. ^_^

    Until then, please enjoy reading our old RP!

    So today's update features the first appearance of Kyra, Yoko's character. She had joined the RP later on and if memory serves, this was her first RP.

    It was indeed. My writing has improved since then. Seeing my old posts make me cringe a little, but the story is one I've missed for a few years.

    Thanks for taking the time to post all of this Zera. It's nice you've kept copies of them and can post them again as able. Very much appreciated.

    I feel writing is constantly moving with you and not in any true improvement apart from improved grammatical structure as you accumulate experience. Even the most experienced writers might find something they've written years before to be cringeworthy as times might have changed and therefore colloqial vernacular would have, as well. For example, in following along with Marvel's films I'd looked back at the comics these stories draw inspiration. The language used is heavily dated. The way in which the heroes speak, as well. One of the more easy to spot changes is the use of super hero names. Considering how each of them still exist in the films, most aren't used to the serious nature they had been in the comics. For example, none of the other heroes call Tony Stark his super hero name of Ironman even when he is in costume. They refer to one another by their actual names and using the super hero names are typically for sarcastic or comedic effect such as when Stark calls Spiderman by name.

    As for my keeping the RP in my archives, well, you aren't the only one who likes looking back at them. ^.~ I've actually kept records of nearly every RP I've been a part of. If you wanted to see something truly cringeworthy, the early RPs of our old forum would make any of this RP's early posts seem like literature. xD

    This round of posts I chose to end with one of my favourite early posts for the RP. This marked a turning point for the RP as it established the character of the little girl and illustrated her power level in physical combat, though her character would serve a much greater purpose than boss fight.

    In this update, we introduce another new character. After a while, haboo decided to create a second character for the excavations side of the story who would help flesh out the details on that side as my character continued to be the antagonist. As a guado, she would also become a bridge between the two halves of the story as you'll see in later posts.

    So you might have noticed that the text colour of my character, Mishka, has been changed. It was during the battle against the little girl that I'd started to evolve Mishka from an NPC I was only controlling to help advance the plot on the Via Infinito side of the story into a full-fledged character. Unfortunately, as you might have also seen in this round of posts, only haboo's Nikki and the character Joseph were posting. I happened to be busy at the time, though during our OOC discussion thread I mentioned that I was planning to change Mishka and add a text colour for her. Joseph's RPer Mechwarrior21 decided to take the intiative and portray my character with the colour. *You'd think I was reading that from the discussion thread or that I'd had some notes saved, but oddly I actually remembered it even after all these years.* ^.^

    We've arrived at another moment in this RP which is the introduction of the character Kane, who is going to go through a few changes during the RP.

    As for Mishka, in keeping with my decision to upgrade her to my RP character, I've given her more backstory by fleshing out her background with the spherehunter group, the Fangtastic! *yes, the exclamation point is part of the name. x) Leader Teraan along with members Norin and Giruun are introduced in my post, though it doesn't really go into detail about them. They'll make appearances every now and then to further define Mishka's background.

    So with this next update we see the first use of Kane's character avatar. Currently, if memory serves, Kane has the role of Dark Knight or some variation therein and so his armour *though obviously an Ironman inspired design* is meant to be his DK armour. This plays a role in the character's history and future.

    So in this update we've got two new developments to a few characters. The more obvious one is that my character, Mishka, and haboo's character, Keema, are acquainted. They are both guado after all and Guadosalam isn't exactly a large expanse. However, their acquaintence will develop a bit more in the future, which will elabourate upon the culture and social atmosphere of the city. The other development is Joseph's traumatic background and finding a kindred spirit in Yoko's Kyra. When I first read this post, I had believed the two RPers were planning to develop a relationship between their characters. Readers and players of the current RP will know that Kyra is very much in love with haboo's Nikki so what's to become of this budding Joseph and Kyra relationship?

    Only three posts this time around. I’m not sure if any of you noticed yet but the last updates were a bit lacking in my participation. That was due to writing this post which I’ve ended today’s update with. The post marks a turning point in my character. In recent posts, haboo’s Keema introduced herself and was acquainted with Mishka. As such, it laid the foundation for Mishka’s skill background in that she’s more attuned to the happenings of the Via Infinito than would most of the other characters. Of course, it was established early on that she’s also a sort of black sheep to the guado and this post further illustrates this by her rejection of some of her lessons.



    However, it is this knowledge as a guado that drives her in this post, which sets up two additional aspects to her character moving forward. The little girl has sent some of her pyreflies into Mishka and as of the conclusion of the post, she’s discovered by Iezak who is also unsent. This will be noticed shortly, at least with respect to the little girl’s actions. Furthermore, this post eliminates Mishka’s inital armaments. Her sword and crossbow are destroyed here and she’s left incapacitated. I felt that I wasn’t making good use of the crossbow anyway and that it had only been there as my character’s image came with a crossbow. What might her next weapon be I wonder? Well, actually, I wonder what you think it might be. I forget how long it is before I reveal her new weapon, though, but that post will be coming eventually. I hope you enjoyed the new development for my character and I’ll see you for the next update!

    I do believe at this point we were months if not a year into this RP already, but why not have a character development segment now? In this first pause from the Via Infinito arc, the group are settled into their lodgings at Nikki's and detailing their character's histories and expanding on their relationships.

    Of course, they are doing this when my character is away. >.> Though, I suppose I'd already gotten a bit of development in anyway, which also seems to be a point of discussion for every single character here. xD "Where are Cyan and Mishka?" could be on a t-shirt at this point.

    So last time Kyra and Joseph had a moment, which at the time I had believed might develop. However, if memory serves, haboo and Yoko (Nikki and Kyra's RPers) had decided on their characters being in a relationship in our discussion chat. Therefore, we have another moment between Nikki and Joseph, which then gets chucked in the bin by the twins blurting out the shippings. *They even outted Mishka and Cyan <_<*

    Gideon and Val both elabourated on their pasts with Val being acquainted to Cid and Gideon revealing his true name. This in addition to saying that his mother apparently knew my character and Keema. o_O That was actually news to me posting it up again now. Well, as per my previous post, Mishka was not familiar with her so I'm not quite sure where Yvette would have met them.

    I think the next post will have the whereabouts of Cyan and Mishka so we can put that to bed. xD
