Creator-san: As with all franchises, depends on who you're talking to Asagi forgot to mention the fans who like and appreciate both series, some just to see the American's take on the original concept
Personally I can say that Power Rangers SPD was pretty good. It had an interesting cast. It was one of the few PR I watched, though.

As for the rest, let's just say yes the Naaru objected, but they prefer to take the role of observers, and that all this is part of a grand plan that Kha, Sumire and VEDA put together which would bring about the best result without widespread chaos.

I can say that premature direct intervention on the High Council is not appropiate. And there will be twists and surprises that even VEDA never saw.

But more will be revealed in Rebuilt.
I see, so there is a reason for this.

Now I just gotta ask, is this also part of the canon timeline? That is, the Cleric Knight group and its relationship with both the Church and the High Council? If it is, I need to make a few changes on Gwen's profile.

Any major objections though? I'm still open to adjustments.
No major objections, they were just a few comments.

To tell the truth, yeah SPD is one of those better Ranger titles. Although it being based of Dekaranger probably helps score points

Even with your above reasons though, that's no excuse for you escalating the situation further like you've been doing. You took a joke we've throwing around Arcas, and then suddenly it's personal. It's not like we insistently throw it around every 3-4 posts whenever you're here, and you did provide the catalyst for it. Look at Aaron and Aurion - he's taking the Sekhuarion thing quite well ( *runs* ).

If you really felt bad, you could've just stopped right then and there when you know the going's gonna get bad here. It's not like you're obligated to reply to every single thing that's thrown at you here.

No more words, no more explanations, just STOP, and continue on with whatever you like to do. Don't aggravate yourself any further.

I can sympathize with your problems, and I can understand the bad schtick you're in right now, under such hell yes it's bad. But that's no reason to suddenly go around throwing a roleplaying hissy fit and suddenly threatening to call down, of all people, MODS to contain order.

Your personal problems are your problems, my personal problems are my problems, their personal problems are their problems, and we all need to cope with it to the best we can, but bringing down the rest of us with you is not an effective method of doing so.

Chiefly, I'm used to giving actual detailed feedback. This means that every single word will be scrutinized, and I'll point out every spelling or grammatical error. I'll point out trivial plot holes, argue about writing styles, and generally take the whole thing very seriously. (Mind you, I also make suggestions for improvement; if I can't personally think of a way to improve something, even if I don't like it, I leave it be.)

That approach does not seem suited for this thread.

I usually keep my opinions to myself, because even though I'd be overjoyed if someone did the same to me, I don't know if anyone else here will be as welcoming of having their hard work ripped to shreds. And if they happen to be having a Bad Day, I don't want to be the one they take it out on.

In addition, I'm pretty much the opposite of a military nut, in that I don't personally feel comfortable with the whole military direction the Nanoha-verse took with StrikerS, and I don't like the inherent implication of all the weapons and tactics, that they are meant for war. It may be justified defense, but it's conflict all the same. Conflict in which people get hurt, when everything is solved at the negotiating table anyway. The only times they aren't are wars of genocide, which is far too heavy for me to read about.

It's a personal thing.
Well, if it was me, I won't mind.
To tell the truth, I'm disappointed that my earlier works were not subject to the kind of regulations in OC as there is now. As one can see, I've seen the sheer inaccuracy of my earlier works and decided to scrap them (not all, but most of them) completely.

Quote:
And finally, I've mentioned before many times, starting from my very first post in this thread (which I hijacked and changed anyway), but in a lot of the works I'm seeing, there seems to be an inherent understanding that we know what significance certain references hold.

I have nothing against references, but I do have something against calling them references when they're actually crossovers. If you have to tell someone "go Google/Wikipedia it", then it's a crossover. If you have to copy-and-paste most of it from Wikipedia yourself, then it's a crossover.

Crossovers require knowledge of both (or more) series. I'm here because I expected MSLN stories with original characters, rather than MSLN/some mecha series I've never watched stories. I'll read the former, but will feel completely lost with the latter.

Agreed with the points there. That's one of the things that I try to do in my works, as readers are supposed to see them without getting confused or checking for references since they are integrated as cleanly as I could.

Okay... It's good. but I have several reservations..

1) To put it quite frankly, they seem so 1337 compared to everyone else. But I guess that can pass since they're Celestial Being.

2) That Ward Field is H4XX. So they cannot be affected by AMF, and THAT'S IT?! I have severe reservations about this.

3) Blink. That's from Warcraft, right? Er... So they can warp all they want? I don't think so. And it needs more drawbacks.

The issue is not of taking a more active role, the issue is being constantly prepared for the future, by analyzing ones weakness, strengths, and constantly making an effort to better one's self. One never know when things can turn ugly and saying 'if the enemy can reach me, lol we might as well give up' is not the right mentality.

I have something similar.

Good news: Chapter Six is almost ready, only one more scene (Ginga x Subaru) to write before it enters publication. Respective portions have been sent to Aaron and Keroko for proofreading, after which will probably be posted by this week.
PM incoming in a few minutes.

Quote:
First, word count exceeds Chapter Four (21K) by a healthy 4k, possible 5 - 6k by the end of the writing.
You call this bad news? This is DELICIOUS news!!!

Quote:
Second, the massive length indicates lots of text, and by that, it will possibly be difficult to follow. A lot of information, but since they're walls of text, so ... And again, no mystery solved as of yet, though I introduced more mysteries, so it'll still keep you guessing.
Don't underestimate me! I'll gobble it up while savoring the flavor!!!

Quote:
Third, I think there will be a lot of questions going on, a lot of repairs to be made here and there, since a lot of conversations are made. I don't even know if they're ridiculous or rational, and the sheer length of several scenes will be mind-boggling.
I love character interactions. So no problem with me.

Quote:
Fourth, character characterization related, Signum will probably come under a lot of scrutiny in this chapter, since I don't know whether she fits the canonical representation or not (a lot of combinations made, which may go haywire). Even Chrono, the Aces, and some seem wrong to me ... somehow.
you got Aurion right. I'll just PM you the required changes later...

Quote:
Fifth, I apologize in advance if this chapter fails to meet expectations.
Aw, don't worry too much.

Quote:
On a slightly cheerful note, I think a short synopsis of what GuardianS is about will be nice, similar to the previews we find at the back of DVDs. It'll give an overall gist of what is going to happen, though in the typical metaphorical sense, and also make it easier for newcomers to see if it suits their taste. What do you all think?
Yup! Sounds good! Novel-format synopsis would fit best. Since your story is very well in the novel-lengths when finished...

Don't lump me in with those narrow-minded bashers in youtube who do nothing but flame Power Rangers or Super Sentai, depending on faction.

while I much prefer the Super Sentai versions, the American adaptations aren't all that bad. They did do some things right, as far as I'm concerned. but still, I like the originals better. Dino Thunder was mighty interesting for a PR show. But SPD, while it had potential, did not cut it too well for sheer misuse of some elements...

Quote:
Well, you have a nice different point of view. Personally, I would attribute some of the weaknesses you mentioned to 7arcs' horrible storytelling, though.

As far as I see it, Nanoha and Fate are pretty much "flawless", since they do not have much room for further development, especially in terms of combat skills and power. They seem to have reached the top of their development curve, at least as far as canon is concerned (there wasnt much, if not any, development for both of them during StrikerS, which was the perfect time to give them some heavy development). We now see that the next phase of Nanoha's development will revolve around Vivio and how to be a good mama, for instance.

Good point about Fate's moral-psychological preparation for combat. She is an Enforcer, so she should have overcame such weaknesses long ago. Unfortunately, though, surely this was used as a mere plot device so the writers could include some dorama at this point of the series, and also to give a half-assed excuse for Fate to use her Sonic Form (or was it called something else?). Again, a weakness that could be attributed to 7arc's horrible storytelling.


That's why we can, and have to pick it up and improve upon it.

Uhm. Not exactly. The thing was I thought you were mistaking my concepts as attempts for gratuitous boosting of a character. I knew you werent criticizing me, but I also thought that I didn't get my entire point thru.

But, yeah. I sure got over my head by a sudden overload of BURNING PASSION due to stress of reviewing taxation to up to three in the morning. It was my mistake for getting the wrong impression.XD

I'm actually a mix of both, having watched Super Sentai in my youth and then seeing Power Rangers, which I thought was purely-American-made because I didn't know about Zyuranger, only knowing up until Jetman.

Bad news: Plenty.

First, word count exceeds Chapter Four (21K) by a healthy 4k, possible 5 - 6k by the end of the writing.

Second, the massive length indicates lots of text, and by that, it will possibly be difficult to follow. A lot of information, but since they're walls of text, so ... And again, no mystery solved as of yet, though I introduced more mysteries, so it'll still keep you guessing.

Third, I think there will be a lot of questions going on, a lot of repairs to be made here and there, since a lot of conversations are made. I don't even know if they're ridiculous or rational, and the sheer length of several scenes will be mind-boggling.

Fourth, character characterization related, Signum will probably come under a lot of scrutiny in this chapter, since I don't know whether she fits the canonical representation or not (a lot of combinations made, which may go haywire). Even Chrono, the Aces, and some seem wrong to me ... somehow.

Fifth, I apologize in advance if this chapter fails to meet expectations.

That's about it.

On a slightly cheerful note, I think a short synopsis of what GuardianS is about will be nice, similar to the previews we find at the back of DVDs. It'll give an overall gist of what is going to happen, though in the typical metaphorical sense, and also make it easier for newcomers to see if it suits their taste. What do you all think?
Well, those are breaking news

Also caught Turboranger, Fiveman and Jetman too Which is why when Power Rangers first aired, the concept of sentai was no longer alien to us, though at the time it was cool seeing American versions of the concept in such awesome CG (at the time).

So do you know the BETRAYAL that I felt when I discovered years later what Zyuranger was, and that the Power Rangers I was once a fan of was actually an American edit of the Super Sentai franchise, from which our beloved go-nin no senshi came from?!?!

MADNESS!!!!!

Let me simplify it: Anything SSS is concidered H4XX around here.
He was nice enough to write "SSS" for speed, but he was under no obligation to. In power it is only on the good side of average.

Quote:
Once again you want something ridiculousely powerfull. Why? Why do you constantly want these blatantly powerfull weapons? Why do you continue to plug your ears to whatever we are saying and go on creating weapons that are far more powerfull then anything we have seen in canon short of ship based canons?
1) The functionality can be duplicated by a sufficiently powerful mage using Precia-type Dimension Jump attacks. In fact, that's another path to a long range weapon - create a Star Trek TR-16 rifle.
2) TC is facing the dilemma of all people with at least a little tactical knowledge trying to develop something new in the Nanoverse. His weapon is not really particularly powerful. It is that engagement ranges and speeds in the Nanoverse are horribly short.
3) This is (almost) fine if all combat is magic or pseudomagic (Inherent Skill), but by now, this OC thread is having people come into intermittent contact with conventional weapons users (Erusia, OFM). Even a half-*ssed civilization like ours can easily make weapons that outrange and outspeed known Nanoverse magi-weapons (even a crossbow can shoot a bolt to a range outside of normal mage combat and the bolt probably flies faster too).
4) So how do you keep the Nanoverse competent. OPFOR Conventional weapons that are degraded to range and speed performances below our current level would be an insult to our SoD. So, the OPFOR must use weapons with at least similar range/speed performance to Terran, and that gives them a huge advantage over almost all mages. So you create a new magiweapon to keep up, and any competitive magiweapon will automatically look h3xx in range/speed performance. But it is not h3xx, it is the TSAB that is unrealistically weak in those areas. To create a "consistent" weapon means to bury his conscience and SoD and knowingly create a weapon that will be at a horrible disadvantage versus conventional tech.
5) He really did try to incorporate some strict limits to the weapon. As he pointed out, it could be used only against a very predictable target at its RMAX. Its really only very good to 2km (one-second flight time). He could easily have added a homing ability (which, even if it slowed down his round, is likely to make it even more deadly overall). He could have used teleportation, or as someone suggested, use magic to form a true laser.

Most, to nearly all shots won't be used to maximum range. Most engagements will occure at 300 to 5000 meters. And you will of course respond with 'Then why not just make it 5 km?' And the answer to that question is: That is not how you build a weapon.

To build a weapon, you look at the job. Then you look at what it takes to fullfill the job. And then you build a weapon that fullfills that jop several times over.
This ensures that every single time, the weapon fulfills its job, instead of an iffy, 'it might make it out there this time'. That's gross negligence.

But you needn't worry. At that range, with a ten second travel time, target selection is pretty much limited to stationary or predictable motion targets.
1) You might want to avoid the letters SSS in this thread. Just write out the spec in metric and let THEM decide whether it is SSS. Some people get spasms just from seeing the letters.
2) That is not how you build a weapon. Real weapons are tradeoffs. Extra capability is bought at the expense of extra cost and extra complexity leading to decreases in the numbers purchasable on a finite budget and degraded reliability, as well as increased requirements in support, training ... etc.
3) Thus, a real weapon is built to fulfill a Techno-Tactical requirement. That requirement is based on what is perceived to be b]realistic[/b] combat scenarios that will occur with some regularity. For example, if 99% of the foreseen shoots with this rifle will be to 5km or less, the TTR is likely to write the requirement as only for a particular hit rate at 5km.
4) The weapon will then be made to reliably fulfill the TTR. Any extra capability it has will be coincidental to those capabilities created to fulfill the TTR. For example, if the requirement says the "ability to fire to 5km", then it'll only shoot to 10km if it'll require no more complexity and cost than a rifle that can shoot to 5km. Or maybe the ability to shoot to 10km 50% of the time is equivalent to the ability to shoot to 5km 100% of the time. Then the rifle will be designed for 5km, and you can shoot it to 10km and have it work half the time, but they won't go to the extra expense to make the rifle shoot to 10km 100% of the time.
5) In short, considering the geometric increase in the difficulty of the target acquisition and fire control problems when shooting to 20km, it is enormously unlikely the gun will have a 20km capability if it is foreseen that "nearly all" its shoots are 300-5000m.

Frame Devices are devices that help strengthen a templar's Medial System (Magic Circuit), because as compared to Mid/Velka, they are physiologically weaker- but it's that weak system that allows them to withstand, sometimes even thrive under AMF.

As for range. 20 km it stays. If someone can hold ten km spherical barriers up for minutes on end, keeping a micro packet intact for ten seconds shouldn't be a problem.
However, the barriers are being held up with direct action/input/control from the caster, even if it's little beyong :"Stay up." With your micropacket though, it's being compressed by the magic rings, then fired...whereupon without the operator control I see a strong chance of it falling apart before it can even hit 20km.

To take an example from real life: The Barrett .50cal, aka the Light Fifty, firing the .50BMG round, a Holy Round, designed by Saint Joh Moses...I'll just get to teh point.

The M82 can shoot targets up t0 1600 meters and hit, and kill them. However, the Army specified an engagement range of 800 meters. M82/M107 operators in Iraq thus employ their rifles at those ranges. However, current doctrine is 800 meter ranges. Beyond that it CAN hit but not all the time/reliably. The primary requirement was to engage targets at 800 meters - this was achieved. The 1600 meter range is a bonus.

Or consider the M2 .50cal MG. It can be used as a sniping weapon... but the primary role is that of an MG and that's how it's employed/designed.

If you absolutely MUST have a range of 5km as main engagement range, then 10km max range. No more.

Also, the scope ought to be quite large/bulky. There is a difference between handheld sensors and ship sensors.

A fictional example of railgun: M99 Stanchion from Halo: Contact Harvest. Fires a railgun at greater range than the SRS99C, but needs a power supply, is large, and is a bitch to carry; it's only been seen plugged into a battery/generator in HGN and mounted to Hornets in Contact Harvest.

Extra capability is bought at the expense of extra cost and extra complexity leading to decreases in the numbers purchasable on a finite budget and degraded reliability, as well as increased requirements in support, training ... etc.
*Shrug.* I guess I just don't believe in budget.

3) Thus, a real weapon is built to fulfill a Techno-Tactical requirement. That requirement is based on what is perceived to be b]realistic[/b] combat scenarios that will occur with some regularity. For example, if 99% of the foreseen shoots with this rifle will be to 5km or less, the TTR is likely to write the requirement as only for a particular hit rate at 5km.
4) The weapon will then be made to reliably fulfill the TTR. Any extra capability it has will be coincidental to those capabilities created to fulfill the TTR. For example, if the requirement says the "ability to fire to 5km", then it'll only shoot to 10km if it'll require no more complexity and cost than a rifle that can shoot to 5km. Or maybe the ability to shoot to 10km 50% of the time is equivalent to the ability to shoot to 5km 100% of the time. Then the rifle will be designed for 5km, and you can shoot it to 10km and have it work half the time, but they won't go to the extra expense to make the rifle shoot to 10km 100% of the time.
5) In short, considering the geometric increase in the difficulty of the target acquisition and fire control problems when shooting to 20km, it is enormously unlikely the gun will have a 20km capability if it is foreseen that "nearly all" its shoots are 300-5000m.

*Shrug again*
Blame Cooper and his overengineering. (New Rule: When in doubt, blame the robot maniac who built it. In fact, I think that's a character trait of his... He tends to overengineer EVERYTHING. At least it's a good fallback.)

That's just an exaggeration. It was a public awareness advertisement, so the wording was meant to be a little over the top.

And Gimmy, Foy and Hiro really never hold back when the Guilty are around...

The canon timeline is a little blurred now, but yeah this set up should persist.

The Cleric-Knights chapter aren't very big. There's a current StrikerS total of about 1 page in training per AW, with Gimmy, Foy, Hiro and Taiyo being the only ones finished the basic training and most of the Trials. As Justicars, they assist Charlie and Kha with instruction if they are around.

Just FYI for those interested or notice something:
Spoiler for FYI RLY:

NICE LOL XD

Way to take 40k material and use it for your own means :P XD


But I wouldn't have done it better than Lowe. I only proposed the idea, not knowing whether it would turn out nicely, but LoweGear went and made it happen impressively.

That goes for many of the pictures I use for my OCs, I owe Lowe too much. Thanks Master!

1) To put it quite frankly, they seem so 1337 compared to everyone else. But I guess that can pass since they're Celestial Being.

2) That Ward Field is H4XX. So they cannot be affected by AMF, and THAT'S IT?! I have severe reservations about this.

3) Blink. That's from Warcraft, right? Er... So they can warp all they want? I don't think so. And it needs more drawbacks.
1) Yes... But that's the Ancient Cleric-Knights. The New Cleric-Knights are a lot more tame, but they love digging up how good they were.

Their OC posts are coming up next, once I clear the thread for Level 7 Information with VEDA, so better to keep the regulator cannons armed for them instead.

2) Hmm... Even less affected by AMF than Belka magic then? I was thinking of letting Aurion invent the M-Jammer Canceller () later in Rebuilt to even things up.

3) They aren't going to go phwing-phwing-phwinging all over the room like Nightcrawler or Mai can. Teleportation is initiated by a prayer, can they can delay casting by not finishing the prayer until the maximum limit. But due to the chanting and mental focusing onto a destination, it is better for the Knights only use it outside of combat to teleport into combat. Once in, they just jet, thruster and fly.

More fresh meat girls are always good for the Kha & Erio dynamic duo. ...
