Regarding CRAU updates, does characters who gained powers from other games will lose their them upon entry? Plus, what happens if they are CRAU updated to a game where they gain any power?
megabond: (Surprised/Looking)

[personal profile] megabond 2017-05-25 03:47 am (UTC)(link)
Okay. But what about CRAU that has a memory-loss and AU setting?

Plus, can the CRAU game be ongoing or not?

Maybe I should try to read carefully before shooting off from my mouth...

Thanks anyway.

So, regarding characters being able to view past entries, can they also see past entries from dropped characters?

Sure thing!

They would also be able to view their "past self's" entries if a previous player played their character.

In Selphie's original canon that I sorely need to canon review... abilities are obtained through equipping Guardian Forces. For the sake of transparency, how would a GF work in Genessia's setting?

Can you find non-earth food from specific canons in Nova City? Like, would it be possible to find a supermarket that sells bantha meat?

Guardian pay

[personal profile] captain_by_the_book 2017-06-24 01:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Would it be permissible for the Guardian to reduce his own pay to have more stars available for paying deputies? (Specifically, with deputy pay reduced from 4* to 3*, I was thinking of him giving up his 5th star to get a third deputy equal pay)

ETA: May Attleton have a Volunteer Deputy slot?

Quick question! Is there any possible way for, say, a genius in computing and electrical wiring to make a regular ol' Earth 2013ish cellphone work in Genessia? Like something Harold could tap into to use for a wireless signal? He's trying to create a private means of communication off-Network. Thank you!
abirdbyanyothername: (blue skies; outdoors)

[personal profile] abirdbyanyothername 2017-06-26 06:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Thank you for getting back to me! :) That makes sense, definitely - I wasn't sure what the situation there would be with cellphones. I imagine Harold would be able to manufacture some kind of wi-fi booster or something along those lines for regular use in Genessia outside of the hot spots and businesses?
abirdbyanyothername: (connections)

[personal profile] abirdbyanyothername 2017-06-26 06:33 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, Harold's never really been a "path of least resistance" kind of guy lol. Given what he's capable of in canon, I wouldn't put it past him to create some kind of programming to enable a seamless switch through known wi-fi networks. He also would definitely want to put some serious security on the connections to ensure their privacy. Does that sound workable?

[personal profile] abirdbyanyothername 2017-06-26 06:46 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, no, not at all - it would be security on his and John's phones, just to keep out potential snoopers / keep people from accessing information on what they're using the wifi for, that's all. :)

Alternately, Star found this article which seems like something Harold could potentially look into in the future. Nova would probably have the appropriate parts, I think?

ETA: I rewatched an episode I had forgotten about, and it turns out Harold has already helped to create a mobile network that has no connection to existing cellphone or wifi networks (it's easy to forget specific achievements in a show where the characters do so much, and I've mostly been watching s1 again lol). He also created an encryption method that effects only their cellphones and protects them from prying eyes. :) So there's actually canon evidence of him doing exactly what he's attempting here!

I have two questions, out of curiosity!

One relating to characters, there's a character I've been thinking about picking up, but he only has a nickname (callsign) in canon and no given real name in any official material. It's a case similar to Blaze, but this time it wouldn't really make much sense for him to use a military designation as opposed to his real name in a civilian environment. Would Genessia take any specific approach to that? ie, handwaving a reason why he might use the nickname (like something upon arrival causing him to forget his actual name), if he might make up a "real" name to protect himself, or potentially something else entirely?

Also relating to subarchways! If a character opens a subarchway and then drops, but there's still someone who's technically from the same world but from a completely different timeline, would the subarchway still remain open or is the timeline difference big enough that it closes regardless? I only ask since Alter Cipher had a subarchway and while he and Gale are from the same world, they're from very different timelines, so I've been wondering for a while if Gale's presence means it's still open or not.

I hope I made sense, my brain isn't fully working for me, I'm sorry! ;;

Another quick question! Is Garden Parks Apartments pet-friendly? Harold and John want a dog ;;

I have a question regarding Phantom Thief forms/Persona summoning for the P5 characters! In P5, the characters can only summon their Personas while in their Phantom Thief form, which they turn into automatically when the owner of the Palace they're in perceives them as a threat. Since the Metaverse isn't a thing here, is there another way they can access their Phantom Thief forms? If not, can they still summon their Personas without them?

Employment IC question time!

My character plans to live in Fayren, but since he's planning to become a librarian or assistant librarian in Genessia's library, I wonder if it will affect his work schedule if he is planning to get a job in Fayren as well.

So my question is that will a character that has a job in the city like Genessia will affect anything to their other job in another city?
lycannerd: (Ryder Neutral)

[personal profile] lycannerd 2017-07-14 11:24 am (UTC)(link)
I see. Well, after hearing your explanation, I might aim him at the assistant librarian since I might plan him to be in charge of a business after a month (namely a bookstore either in Attleton or Fayren) or maybe taking up a job on a freelancer job of being a non-celebrity martial arts fighter or something.

So even if he takes a part-time job while applying for a business next month, it won't affect his schedule or not?
lycannerd: (Den Smile)

[personal profile] lycannerd 2017-07-18 07:09 am (UTC)(link)
Well, looks like I don't need to clarify anything. I might as well go for it.

Regardless, thanks for answering my questions.

Hi! I'm currently slowly making my way though the FAQ for this game but I don't think my character is covered on either the allowed or not allowed character section. (I think the closest she comes to is a fandom OC?)

She's a character I created for a Vampire the Requiem/Chronicles of Darkness campaign, and I see you already have a character from the very similar Changeling the Dreaming/World of Darkness marked as a Fandom OC on your taken list.

I'm hoping that this means my character is indeed welcome in the game as a fandom OC, but still thought it would be best to ask if that was the case first?

Considered putting this under the Dream Docks page, but wasn't sure. Anyway!

The running theory currently is that coming to Genessia essentially puts their old life on pause. What, if anything (assuming it's not just a made up theory for people to feel better with nothing substantial behind it) is the reasoning/evidence behind this? At most , all I've got is that it could be assumed that their past life is still going on because the Dream Docks reflects that whenever people use it.

Question! This character is from a non-localized game in the Ace Attorney series that most likely will never be localized... However, there's a playable fan translation that does its best to line up with the other games that have already been officially translated and gives the characters localized names. Would I be able to play this character from that fan translation?

Question regarding canon updating! Would Akira be able to retain any new Personas he acquires during an update, since they're part of him and not physical objects?
