Anyone have an easier way? Apart from copy-and-paste into a text file (and losing all formatting like bold and such)?

While it might be hard for those who create multiple characters, why not do what Kha (and I eventully) do, simply ad a link in the signature?

....Maybe. If I have the time, just maybe I'll do my fanon modification of a canon character, namely my favourite Gil Graham. Maybe I'll make it so his real name was Gilbert Graham or something. :{
- Being the 'governor' of Velka State/VAR, Carim automatically has a seat in the BoDir, which is also the seats for the command- that's why she has Tier3 authorization to unlock limiters.

- Do the fanon and wait for authorization heheh.

- i'll churn that out in due time- because, i still have to clarify things.

- i have enough mental capacity to do things and remember all the details

- just incase i go insane, i have soft copies of my data and some established lines- i'll share them one day.

On the problem of finding profiles: It might be easier for the creators, especially ones with multiple characters or profiles, to compile their works into a single file that can then be posted into a single post link in the future, to keep the profiles organized. Having soft copies handy is also a good thing.

I made a siggy out of it, but haven't compiled the new elements together because of the BLUE CHEESE BOMB it'll become. They will once the third OVA is up. I'll load the refined skill tree (and the henshins of both barrier jackets hopefully) tomorrow morning. I feel like a ton of bricks now...

Maybe when this thread goes hyper-explosion, we could get Kha and Skyfall to modify their opening post to cram in post-links to particular character, universe, trivias, etc of posters by alphabetical order or something.

Since from the looks of things, things may get more messy as we've went from mere characters to devices to vapourfics to trivias to even universal expansions. I'm sure there's more of Device-talks, OVAs in the near future and stuff from all sides of the ball park, and I still have Ancient Belka Lost History Part 2,3, and 4, accompanying character data in that expansion along with Gilbert Graham : ~ A Classical Story.

That's a pretty good idea there: it'll give us a quick place with which to look up character profiles at a glance. Not sure on Skyfall, but fortunately Kha got the second post. What do you think der Kleriker, would you mind?

Yeah it's a good idea and I'm cool on it. Frees me up to do another Liquid Bluecheese Bomb later too.

Awesome, make it a collosal gooey one

Anyways, to do what you preach, here's Kaylin's scattered Profile compiled in a single post, including the most recent bits, and minor updates to the old profile. Will also be updating this post whenever more character info is posted, whether on Kay or another character.

Starting off, The Biography of Kaylin "Kay" Mathis, massive edition

Edit:

Her Portrait:

Spoiler for Kaylin Mathis:

@LoweGear: Woo, thanks for consolidating Kay's backstory and stats. For some reason it was taking me something like one out of three tries to find it in this thread.

@Meophist: Not decided on a name yet? I'm having a bit of trouble visualizing the Lunar System, but I suppose I just need to sleep on it for a bit or something.

Well, I see it as a healthy part of fandom. We're fans enough of the series to want to create characters for its setting; it's a fan-related activity. It's what fans do.

And it's a lot of fun, honestly speaking. Much better than being bored or burned out.

A name or another such moniker would probably be helpful. A nickname, perhaps, or a title. Otherwise, we have to refer to her as "Meophist's character" (or, if you make more, "Meophist's first female character in the thread on page 11").

Even calling her Nameless would be giving her a name, or at least a nickname. Also, it's almost essential if you want to actually write something with her in it; I've tried writing a story without naming the main character, and I found that significant characters need to be referred to by something, even if it's just a rank or title. Generic nouns tend to be too vague.

Well, like I said, she doesn't need to have an actual name (that is revealed to the reader) immediately. A relatively unique identifier is all that is needed, for immense convenience.

Heck, you can call her Yellow-Eyes if you want.

Smooth character there Meophist! She seems to be a rather interesting girl, but having her nameless will be a bit complicated no?

Alright, I get it. For now, let's call her "Libra" until I can think of an actual name.

Edit: And thanks.

Thanks, but may I ask what part? I actually tried to make her a little ordinary, so perhaps I failed. Not really a bad thing though.
