Is this an XV-class warship, and what kind of armaments would be appropriate for an experimental unit's "flagship"?
Experimental weapons, what else? just tone it down though.

PS: those in the IRC that saw the test firing of the GN Warp Cannon [Haxx version]: I'm still toning it down...

That would be Mine by the way... as the TSABS Silvana (LHM-BB-03 / TSAB-XN-01)

Hellooooo? Does the "Time Space" in TSAB mean nothing to you? Multiple universes are part and parcel of the series itself.

To a point, yes. The difference is, if you go far enough into dimension space, you're liable to start seeing things that look awful familiar. Whether those be other copywritten universes, or alternate takes on the TSAB and all associated characters, when you're dealing with the multiverse, anything and everything can and will happen. Especially crossovers.

Really, am I the only one here who came to that conclusion? Never mind that we can't use said characters and concepts while creating OCs (here, at least), that doesn't stop 'em from existing elsewhere.

This is definitely not worth the headache you're giving me, especially since I've got final exams around the corner.

No, you're not the only one that came to that conclusion, we've already imported several concepts ourselves. However, the main difference is that we import and adjust things to the Nanohaverse setting, we don't 'make a link to the DBZ universe' as you seem to be suggesting.

This is the Nanoha character thread, as such, we will limit our creations to the Nanoha universe.

Where is original when all I seem to see is some kind of obsession over porting characters from other franchises?

I mean, even my first character was made on the blue with no existing base; another of my characters, the pirate Morgan may have been inspired by Cobra but he is nothing like him.

USB500's Alita may have been based on Patchouli, but she is nowhere a carbon copy of the original. And the list goes on.

This is the last thing I'm saying before I sigh off from this.

There's a difference between multi-universe, and multi-dimensions.

Multi-Universe refers all various universes that exists, known to us, meaning that the Pokemon Universe, DBZ Universe, X-Men Universe, etc. etc. are all a hop-skip-and-a-jump away from one another.

Multi-Dimensions, now that's like when you're dealing with various levels of reality or space. A good example would be the Warp from Warhammer 40K. Another example would be the concept of Sub-Space from Star Trek.

@Keroko: Do correct me if I'm wrong however.

*Points at Rico*

Right there, Sheba. I've got another idea for a partner character (as in Subaru/Teana partners) in the pipe right after him, as well, who's also (mostly) original.

To put things into another perspective, Comartemis:

Take Signum. She is in many ways an homage/OCfication of Lamia Loveless. Yet, she is still her own person. And consider how she's inserted into Nanoverse.

Again, as I repeat, take Chief. I inserted Chief via means that you've ignored. Or Johnson - rather than make him a UNSC Marine from Earth, I made him an Erusian Marine from St. Hewlett, Osea, Erusia. Hell, Franz is his own person, nevermind that Alpha Franz has a number of fairly obvious Alt Eisen refs. Ditto Glen & Emili, who are minor shout outs to Kyosuke and Excellen and nods to Cybuster and Weiss Ritter Rein in their skillsets.

Now for god's sake, listen. LISTEN. And COMPROMISE. If I can do it, if Kagerou can do it, if ATC can do it, you had better fucking learn. Nobody on Cadia gets a free pass. Even Aaron nerfed and de-HAXXed a charecter profile he created before haxbusting - and this was a well-liked OC as well. Reiji tried to throw his weight around and got slapped down - do you really think you can get away with the same?

You wound me, Goose; what the heck do you think I did with Wily and Zero? I ported them. Like a good little soldier, I listened to the advice you lot gave me, and pumped out what I think is a damn good example of a Striker-level character.

Well, I'll grant that you did listen to me on backstory. The haxxed abilities are another matter though - wait.

*scrolls up*

Ceh. Rico & Nova are original creations? I was thinking they were being inserted from somewhere else. And I started hearing warning bells after you mentioned them facing a whole galaxy of threats and the like. Then again we've got the spawn, the unholy cross of Zerg and Flood.

Sorry about that. I should warn you that the longer/later i spend time on OC, the sharper my temper gets.

Also, while I normally handle backstory, I would advise you to listen to the comments made on M4 (and why M4? Can't you think of a better name like "Missile Bukakke" instead?). Unless it's an M4 carbine, a magical Itano circus ain't happening anytime soon. (Naomi canonically used an M4A1 in Episode 2 of Alpha; in one continuity it's because her BR55C carbine wasn't ready yet.)

To your credit, originally Nova was pulled from MKR, but these two have undergone a serious redesign in concept to fit them into my Wraith Squadron idea. Now the only thing Nova has in common with anyone else is Etna's (from Disgaea) physical appearance... and a possible connection to Agito, who she bears an uncanny resemblance to. I haven't worked out the details on that, though, and it might turn into "just a coincidence".

It doesn't work that way. The Arc takes too long to charge and the range is too short to be a viable tactical weapon. Strategic, yes. Tactical, no. If a TSAB ship pops out of dimensional space and starts charging the arc, it's targets are either going to scatter or focus fire on it.

Besides, I find that it's more fun to write about people who have to work and actually think their way through combat, rather than Nanoha's "Just beamspam them till they die" approach.

In two words: Sniper Ivanovich.
Back, Psycho! Back I say!

All of my OCs would get their butts kicked by the Aces hands down . It's not all about power, but being able to write and develop a character of your own creation and see how he/she grows over time. Creativity is the key

Nothing big here, really, just a lot of information dump. And I think I got some of the characters OOC (Out-of-Character) and some things OOC (Out-of-Canon) .

Anyway ...

Though I simply skimmed the surface of it, I've seen some interesting charas. The one that mostly caught my eye would be Keroko-kun's Rebuilt of Uomo. I haven't had time to read the third yet though (Sorry Keroko-kun ). Nice new pic for him though

I'm in school and about to receive a lecture from my teacher for slacking off so I'll see you guys later

*Runs before receiving lecture*
I think those exams are a bit more important, ne? But glad to see you're still doing well and holding on there . Good luck with those exams and we await your return!

One of the viewpoints we use in adapting characters can be taken akin to what Yuuko states in Tsubasa Chronicles: As you travel to different worlds you will encounter faces you had met before. However, they will not always be the same person. Even though the soul is the same, the events of their lives have shaped each one differently. A friend in one world may be an enemy in the next.

Well, something like that . In this case if we want to port over a character, we merely use them as a base and alter them to integrate better.

Noted. M4 remains viable... though I might tone down the volume of fire, just to humor the lot of you.
Means nothing. You can't do that Comartemis, it's not legit to canon. In any way.

Strange...I've never listened, and I've never compromised either...and yet the haxbusters have always left me alone...

wait...that's because I'm not on enough, because my character is kept out in the dark not treading on toes, and because most of it gets retconned by myself even before it hits the board. But even more to the point, it's because I don't really care. Even so, I'll say this:

If any so-called 'haxxbuster' tried to BULLY me like you do in this post, I'd IGNORE them. If they kept trying, I'd keep ignoring them.

Remember, the power of Haxbusting only works if the person you're trying to help actually wants to listen. If not, all they have to do is ignore you, and then what will you do?

Answer: you won't do anything because you CAN'T. If they don't choose to listen, you CAN'T make them. worse, they might choose to leave, and that'd be the OC's loss, not theirs. Moreover, if people are being scared away, the mods might close the thread entirely, ending the whole Hax vs non-hax argument for good.

so tone down the attitude, Goose.

In my defence, I say this about the perils of HAXX, for the benefit of Comartemis and any other newcomers:

If you feel the need to write some HAXX plot or other, DO SO. Post it. Let everyone see it. AND THEREFORE GET IT OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM.

then go back and ask yourself: would I really like my character to have to deal with THIS?

and then alter it to how you feel you need to for you to feel happy putting another character up against it.

most of all, DON'T compromise UNLESS and UNTIL you're happy with the compromise...if you feel you need to fight for a concept that others don't like the sound of at first, by all means fight for it. Don't let yourself be bullied into watering down a feature you like just because some others don't think it fits. MAKE it fit. don't drop it just because it's easier than arguing over it...argue, and hash out a middle ground.

but don't abandon something just because the haxbusters don't like the sound of it.
