Aqua didn't grow or change. Aqua got interrupted when I tried to do any. Just when I was starting to do some grow you timeskiped over it. I know I don't post the most here. I do take fault here, but I've just had bad luck. By the way, it seems like the whole flank thing is starting to be useless. It seems like people are all over the place. If we could get a map to mark where players are that'd be helpful, but I understand you can't.

I thought she had trained with Yev over the course of the timeskip? That didn't improve her skill? As for growth, that really happens as we develop backstories and character interactions. That's why I was trying to talk with you a bit via PM about Aqua's past-- to help you develop her and give her more to work with.

There's really nothing I can do about the timeskip now. There's a lot of characters in this RP to consider that I can't postpone too much for one character. Not saying that it's your fault, but I hope that you can partially see where I'm coming from, too. I don't feel like we're helping anything by rehashing this, but if there's anything we can do going forward that would be something I'd gladly help with.

And no, the flanks are working just fine. Everyone is still in the flank that they started out with. I'm not sure why you thought that they are all over...? Unless you're talking about Rabiyu, Alastor, and Henry, who are special cases between flanks and can challenge either center or left of Kilkis Seres.

I'm not against the war. It's more that Aqua wasn't able to grow as much as I wanted her to. Then she's against the war and fighting. Aqua still hasn't even picked a side yet. The one thing that could be of importance to this war is something she hasn't even got to learn yet. A lot of my plans for her never played out at all. I had a plan and it got ruined and now I'm confused on what to do.

Hmm, I see . . . .  I feel that the timeskip did mess things up for a lot of people in terms of their planning, to which I do apologize for.  It's difficult to have plans lined up and then they get destroyed by the course in which the RP takes.  It was a choice of either taking much more time to develop things fully, or take a rather large leap and continue the momentum of the RP.  Maybe I will take this into greater consideration next time I perform a timeskip.  I have feared too much stagnancy, however, as that is how I've often seen RPs die, and I'm really trying to prevent that by keeping things moving forward, y'know?

 

One difficulty with Overworld is the rather large overlying plot, and then all of the other intricate individual plots that each character supports.  I think it requires the player to spend a lot of time immersing themselves with other characters, themselves, and growing their individual while trying to continue rolling with the story.  I agree that it seems Aqua missed out on a lot of that, which probably isn't playing to her advantage now.  The best thing would be to try to establish that some growth occurred over the course of the RP and try to define her as she would be now and how you want her to be, though it might take some time and careful thinking to decide on these matters.

 

If I can help let me know. : )

I'm becoming emotionally prepared for when/if Helios meets Ren because it's going to be emotional

I feel that their meeting will be imminent, what with Ren mentioning Helios to Meksis and Helios mentioning Ren to Soren.  It's only going to be a matter of time before either--or both--connect the dots, and boy will that be a messy and heartfelt reunion!  Even I am uncertain of how it will proceed, though I have a few ideas, both of which will be very emotional.

Then I might as well quit this Roleplay, cause I'll literally not be able to for a whole arc. :/

I truly don't understand what the issue is here.  From what I gather, it looks like you dislike battles in general.  That is fine, which is why I was giving you an out and saying that you didn't have to fight if you didn't want to, but instead could interact with the NPCs, or other characters without fighting if you so wish.  I wasn't trying to be rude, but rather proffer an alternative if you're not having fun.  You mentioned that you don't really see the need for bosses, and I thought by telling you that they wouldn't affect your character that it would help you not be concerned by them.

 

Also, I should add that the war isn't going to be for an entire arc like the other RP arcs have been.  It's only going to go on for a few more weeks in real time, probably.  A short duration considering the whole length of the RP thus far.

 

It would be a shame to see you leave, but I don't really know what to say.  I want to accommodate you and help you enjoy the RP, but I can't change the full design and ruin it for other people either.

I really don't think that bosses are needed, add em if you want to. Just don't go over the top.

I feel that they would be useful, and I will determine how many we end up using, but thank you for your input nonetheless. You don't have to participate in the war if you don't want to, by the way. I don't foresee it lasting very long. Also, I wanted to add that you won't be affected by these bosses because they are aiding Kilkis Seres anyway, if that helps any.

In Topic: Who should be the one to finish off Xehanort?

I feel like it should be Sora, for the same reason as Felixx mentioned above.  The series started with Sora, and I feel like this epic battle between Xehanort and Sora has been culminating for quite some time.
