I suggest a car-name thread based off of all the new characters who are also based off of cars. Extensive list can be found here:

Question

Mods, I was thinking that since I noticed that a "create-own-character" thread already exists (at least, in Gundam Sub-forum) can anyone of you create one for Nanoha sub-forum? It should be partially related to the fanfic thread since it may contain materials of the Nanohaverse that are fan-made.

Thanks.

Sounds very interesting. If you are still reading the thread, feel free to submit the opening post in this thread, and I'll create the thread. Oh, and sorry about such a late reply.

I've some doubt about the merit of the thread topic you are seeking. While I can see how Gundam section of the forum can get away with such topic with so many possibilities of gattai to explore upon, I don't see how this kind of thread will fit into in the Nanoha section. If you have a convincing opening post in mind for the thread, then post it here by all means. We will decide then if the topic deserve a thread or not.

What kind of discussion would we have in such a thread?

I Kinda Agree, I have a RP Chracter for Nanoha, But I could REALLY use some help, esappically with the magic types ranks and attacks and such, since the nanoha world 'magic laws' or what ever is rather complicated IMO.

Believe me, ask any of those questions in the Generic or episode threads, and I can assure you that there'll be at least 3 or so people getting back to you within the hour (Or, at least before the day ends...)

I'm not sure if this is enough of a topic to actually discuss, beyond listing the names and references that is.

I don't object to the thread but it might be more sensible to give the thread a wider range such as Popular and Cultural References in Nanoha. This way the thread can cover any modern reference (such as the use of car names for the characters) as well as any cultural context (such as the use of different languages for the devices). I'm sure there must be some Sci-Fi and Fantasy refernces in the series as well as real-life settings.

I think this is a good idea and has scope for discussion. Using the existing magic/technology from the series should supply enough variations to be able to "design you own character". The only downside is that it may become a "talk but not listen" thread where people post but not really discuss the suggestions made.

So, it seems there is some support for both ideas (from different Mods ). As monir suggested, make a convincing opening post here and if it emphasises the right qualities then we will split the post off and create a new thread. Please try and encourage discussion so they don't become "write only" threads

If I may put my input into this, how about we make a small rule, that those who want to post their character will have to give advice to others first. That way, those who want to post their own characters are being helpfull, while those that merely want to help can simply do so.

I see if I can post something interesting here.

I see that we can post OCs, take them apart, balance them, then build on the backstory. However there's a chance that people might not be willing to offer up OCs for the picking for fear of spoiling their own stories. It took quite a while to get the fanfic thread to open up. ^^ However if this thread is opened I'm willing to help it along.

Sounds like fun! I already got a character ready to be submitted. (Just need to work on a few details )

The only worry I have is that, as soon the thread is opened, there will be a huge inflow of created characters and no room for discussion, so only the latest submissions will receive proper discussion. (This is only at the beginning, of course) The problem is, I dont know how we can handle this.

Actually that'll be a good thing, but I dun think it'll be that big a prob. If it does flood, I suppose we need someone to be putting in effort to keep at characters in view. Probably like how Skane tracked our bets for Epi 5, except with links to the earlier posts containing the chars?

That would work. Also I think the thread will be a good place for fanfic writers to find unique characters for their stories. It should be pretty interesting.

Now that sounds like a tavern to recruit heroes. Imagine if several people starting picking one, his exploits would add up over time, resulting in more people picking him, until we can have Mahou Shounen Random Hiroko. Just my AU$0.02.

It will be nice to have a compilation of all the theories/physics on how magic, lost logias and such which is currently been all over the place, be put into a single thread.

We can certainly reduce the number of brains get fried this way.

The Magic and Technology of MGLN can be used to hold such discussion. Or do you mean that existing posts should be collected together. If so, that requires a lot of effort but it is possible to copy existing posts into the new thread (but that might make the thread read a bit odd). Someone will have to find the links for the posts that are appropriate.

How about a tactics and training page? It's interesting seeing how both Nanoha and Fate develop their respective skills and specialisations, first as wild MC mages before taking on the Velka style. This would be in contrast to the pure Velka Knights group before going to the dedicated hybrid mages like Hayate or the Strikers. Of course, there are support mages, summoners and the weapons the entire crew uses either against one another or the current crop of AMF drones.

In S1, Fate and Nanoha essentially started out as jacks of all trades because of the lack of directed training. The divergence in abilites come from Fate specialising in speed/melee and Nanoha countering with powerful range attacks.

S2 has the girls face a crew of warrior-mages with a high degree of personal melee skills [Vita's strength and Signum's agility], augmented by a sudden burst of crushing power. This causes them to specialise even further into their respective spheres in order to counter them.

S3 introduces the AMF drone. Suddenly the girls find out that they've specialised into a corner with an opponent able to negate near any sort of magical attack thrown at it. Que the new team to address the shortfall.

Lots to talk about here.

What's about that Characters thread? We can expand it to include discussions on the in-canon characters as well, since fanfics also depend on them and we can also use the thread to polish our characterisations of them, or at least get everyone to agree on some points. But I think we'll leave canon relationships out of this, otherwise this is going to be the Somalia of Nanoha forums. But that's up to everyone to vote.

In other words, is there going to be a thread?

last I heard, we needed a detailed opening post, and it so happens that I have the time, so... *Cracks knuckles*

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

Title: Character creation and discussion

This thread is made for people want to discuss the existing characters of nanoha, or those who have their own Original Characters in the Nanoha-verse, and wish to discuss them. This is also a good place for those who are looking for characters to add in fanfictions or RPG’s to get a few ideas, or complete characters.

To avoid this thread going in the wrong direction, there are a few ground rules.
  • Do note that, like most threads, this one is a discussion thread. It’s not simply a place where you dump your own character and never look back. As such, you really should make at least a few comments before you post your character.
  • Discussion means that people will disagree with you. Try to listen to them before ignoring them for trying to ‘kill your darlings’
  • Try to listen to advice and suggestions. Some of the people here really know what they’re talking about.
  • No character is god. Invincible characters are boring, and generally show a lack of challenge. I can guarantee you that any character with invincibility’s will get shot down immediately by the users. Seriously, don’t try it.

So with that out of the way, how do we create a character? Weeeell, the first thing would be to decide whether it is a him or a her. Details, I know, but very important. Second would be looks. Hair, eyes and clothes are all very important in this regard. Following would be whether she is good or evil –this is relatively important for the personality, which will come up next- Personality is the core of a character, and makes up the ‘who’ of your character. After that, it’s down to the best part: Powers! Devices, spells, specializations, go wild! Just… make sure your character is not too powerful, okay? Even superman had his kryptonite.

Oh, and of course a background. Where did you character come from? What did he/she go through to become the way he/she is? Etc. etc.

How detailed you describe everything is up to you, but I can guarantee you, the more details, the more there is to discuss. And that’s what this thread is all about, right?

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

That should be it. Anyne else have a few things we might add?
