All right. Thanks for the clarification.

Fine. It is a functional combination of chaff and flares. (Writes it down).

Quote:
I’ve covered this before I never advocated only a single guidance package in fact I said repeatedly I think spells can use many different ones as needed even while looking superficially very similar. Thus the magic missiles can be heat seeking, SA, or command guided as directed but there is no reason to have 10 different versions of them listed when the only thing changed is how they track the target which would only ever matter in a story context and so would be addressed at that time.
True, but only SAH will require this illuminator, and since you were such a big advocate of it, I'm surprised that the supporting magic for this system at least wasn't written out, that's all.

OK, one more question. Say Felix is firing two magic missiles simultaneously (not successively). Can he fire in the Soviet fashion - each with a different guidance system? Or is he limited to setting them both to one setting? (Obviously, the former is harder but works better.)

For the rest, let's see how it pans out.

Quote:
Fine be a nit picky ass but basiclly the extra “thrust” means they’re more nimble and so can track targets better (which they’d have to since the target will have more time to evade) thus resulting in higher hit rates and thus “accuracy”. CEP isn't really applicable to a guided missile meant for air to air combat as it's pretty much "hit or it dosen't count" hence accuracy is IMO a better word IE: how often the spell can be expected to find it's mark and strike the intended target.
Well, if you use proximity fuses, a near miss could suffice. But OK, so it is maneuverability that improves.

Quote:
Dude it’s hyperbole to make it sound powerful I’d never write some guy just standing there and trying to tank it without a good reason. Even so it dose in fact look quite innocuous once it’s actually shot obviously if the guy see him charging it up he's going to know something is up. Also keep in mind that this is "really fast" as compared to most Nanoha beams which still hardly makes it relativistic or anything.
All right. But it would at least be supersonic, right?

I'm a little too tired to start breaking the backlog now, or whatever there is before this post.

So I'll post first, and come back tomorrow for some more.

As I said on the IRC, here's 3 drafts. Still open to suggestions, manhandling, slamming, you know the drill.

COMING SOON: Some background information so some things aren't so confusing OR nearly as h4xx as they sound now. Funny thing that I wrote the text before the Foreword. It should be called the Back-word instead now. But since this is more transcribed in my head, and less documented elsewhere, I felt it was important that I put this down first before I start forgetting things, my next post will tell you why I need to do this.

Ergo, the background is recorded elsewhere other than here, so I can whip it out more easily.



Firstly, we shall have a villain, and then a true neutral dead guy.

Sorry I had to do this doubleposting, but the forum board insisted that my post was too short.

Spoiler for “OC Grenade 3/3: A. Ricardo Cronqvist, Forgemaster’s Familiar”:


I haven't made plans entirely for what and who this guy will be...so it's in limbo.

--------------------------------

- There are another 3 OCs coming up, but I lost an argument with my longtime girlfriend, a 4GB Thumbdrive, and now she's refusing to let me have my way with our accounts. Hope we patch up, but if it don't work out, I might have to get a new one, preferably a motorbike, because a bike doesn't argue, you don't buy her diamonds, and you don't have to meet her parents. That means I'll lose all my data I invested in her, although luckily my aging nanny, my manuscript book, has yet to die on me yet, so some things are still documented in there. I didn't lose my chapters of text, thankfully. It would have killed me to lose all 14k words of that...

- And I'm reconsidering posting those three, actually.

Aside from what the others said, I was talking about 'accidental encounters' like, walking on the street and seeing Shamal going shopping kind of thing.

We already know magic is a comon energy source on Mid. Simply feed it magic from a reactor.

True, but again: At that time they were pressed for time. And they did gave up a bit too easilly after Reinforce had her say. Again, this is only a theory anyway.

Eventually, yes. But it is also said that the more the book is fed, the more the draining from the host is sped up by Yuuno in the same episode.

"really fast by Nanohaverse standards" means that you don't paste a specific speed behind it.

Well I know I had finals this week and even after you get home from those you don’t feel like doing much. As I recall a number of others said they had the same on IRC. (I’ve not even really been on that for a few days either.) If things don't pick up more in a week or so then you can start to worry.

Acutally that's not true it has a speed, namely the speed of plot.

Spoiler for A moment in the mind of Syn:


Note: This is not Alpha canon, this is a more likely case scenario in what could eventually become kerokanon, if there is ever an S4 released. This is based on Vivio growing up far less angsty.
Speaking of Vivio, how strong would Syn and Vivio be at 13 years old at the overall OC-kerokanon level?

I'm kinda planning a middle-school sports drama story, and Vivio would naturally be the peak of the age group.

Gets out of comfy bed, walks up to Keroko-kun, and whacks him in the back of the head with a Harisen.

Go back to sleep -_-

Ah, you see, I don't know.

That's one of the main problems with kerokanon, it's completely dependant on what canon gives me. That's why I didn't touch Keroko's actions on board the Cradle untill it was over, and why Syn's profile was so bland pre-Alpha.

Syn and Vivio are supposed to be equal in mage rank, and if a possible S4 follows the like mother like daughter routine, then that would place them both in the AAA ranks. I suspect Vivio will use a mixture of Mid and Belkan (albeit with a Belkan circle) and be alot like her mother in terms of 'huge beams of death' (although there is also the chance that she will follow through with what we have seen on the Cradle).

Syn I can already tell you will be a typical Belkan close range specialist, though how much ranged abillities she will posses is subject to revision, as is the apearance of her Barrier Jacket.

Hey, that's half the fun in OC. You can let your creativity run wild. And as far as I'm concerned, my RF6 will not conform to S4 when it comes outs. Any subsequent stories I make here will most likely conform to S4.

Speak for yourself me I’ve been sleeping like 12+ hours a day and accomplishing absolutely nothing with the rest of it well besides writing crack that has nothing to do with my fic (VF >>> Gadgets…) and polishing off a 3,000 word in character essay about Electronic Warfare mages.

Oh, I let my creativity run wild, but I enjoy making stories fit into canon. That's where half the fun in character creation lies for me. Making a story and having the fit into the story without taking over the entire story is a challenge, and one I like to take on. It's not jus Nanoha either, there are Keroko's in Shana, Mai Otome, Slayers, Negima, heck even pokemon (dog-type trainer main pokemon are Flareon, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Espeon, Umbreon and Arcanine).

Bah, I live in a village where the worst form of crime as far as I can remember was when someone set fire on a wooden playground house several years ago, and nothing like that has happened since. As long as I take medium precautions (close doors and curtains at night) I should be fine.

.... Wow, that certainly is an interesting way for them to meet. I had this hunch while reading, something along the lines of 'Oh, you have got to be kidding me' with a grin on my face. When Glock introduced himself, I laughed.

Love at first sight? Me thinks not.

And yes, isolation can do wonders for the imagination.
