Intermission 17: Discussion
« on: April 07, 2010, 11:14:32 am »
It's gonna be another one of those "educational" intermissions this time, like the sorcery one last time.  So I'm wondering, what does everyone want me to do an intermission about?  As in, what aspect of the Flipside world should I expand upon in this intermission?  Go ahead and post your desires here, and if I like it I'll go with it!  If I don't, I won't... but I might!  You never know!

More stuff about extra dimensional spaces, please. Especially how you keep plants healthy in one.  :D

Some info about the real Thin Man?

If that's not possible due to plot spoilers then Bern throwing bricks in/on that warp box will be enough for me ^^

Maybe something more specific on the origin of Bern's dad's sword?  Seeing as how it's currently relevant

Tell us about the "cursed"

Why are people cursed (or thought to be cursed)?
Are curses curable/reversible? if not, why not?
Why are the cursed generally shunned in a world that seems to accept sorcery?
Whats special about the cursed as opposed to someone else who might have some form of permanent magickal enhancement/ability?

Possession: if a sorcerer possesses another sorcerer, can they still cast magick?  Who's spirit essence would it use? If a sorcerer possesses a non-sorcerer or vice-versa can either use magick?

History: Whats the known history of Iscariot?  Wars, myth, legend, etc.

Religion: What religious beliefs exist in Iscariot? God, Gods, angels and Demons, spirits, afterlife, creation of the world, etc.

Iscariot: The nations, various unique monsters and beasts, geography and moons, differing laws of physics, etc.

+1

That, or about magic items and weapons in general. Why some blades are magical, and how better they are over normal blades, how the Angel Breath hover, etc.

I want to know how magic works. What is possible with magic, but mostly what isn't possible. What laws does magic obey? Like the laws of physics, magic has to follow certain laws too.

Also, why doesn't anybody have a fucking crossbow? I mean, that would take this standstill down immediately. Glyph could be carrying one. Fuck melee weapons.

So the items with more than one vote currently are:

Extra-dimensional space: 2
Explain the cursed/curses: 3
Magick and Magick weapons in general: 2
History of Iscariot: 3

I'll update/edit this post now-and-again.

So many posts and no one states the obvious?

Maytag sex education!!! :)

Nah, for real, I would actually like to learn more about the world in general, places, people in power, etc.

Curses would be nice, but I'd prefer more of the history of the land.

Tough choice between curses, the history of Iscariot, and Maytag sex education. Wait, scratch that last one. For now.

I'll vote for the history of Iscariot.

I wish Intermission Bern would interfere with the main story. Use magic to throw a brick at Danzig's head, BAM! Victory.

Danzig is probably good enough to dodge or even parry projectiles.  Maytag is probably the only one there who could really get him if she had some proper throwing knives. She's be able to let off about 6 at once, even with only one arm.

Y'know, if Crest is going to start being a meat shield, I think he needs to get a shield to go with that sword of his... in fact I'd actually like to see a fighter using a sword and shield combo as I can't remember the last time I saw one in any cartoon... plenty in movies such as Troy or the recent Clash of the Titans who used them to awesome effect.

Don't forget 300 Charles. I think the reasoning behind it is that it takes a lot of work to draw a shield (compared to a sword), especially one with an intricate design.

As far as a shield with personal heraldry goes, then yes, such shields take a long time to draw, a plain shield with no heraldry or simple geometric shape heraldry in a basic shape (Round/tower/normand/oval) shouldn't take too long

Now that Suspiria has said that Iscariot probably won't face any trouble from Marvallo, who wants to wager that an Iscariot-Marvallo war will be featured in a future chapter  ::)?

And it seems no one's noticed Maytag's got two arms in the intermission! A special side effect of the chibi magic?

Because intermissions are not in the story line ?

Intermissions are totally diffrent from the main story line tbeean, thats why May has her left arm and Bern throws bricks.

What we need around here are more Flipside BricksTM!!
What good is dreaming it if you don't actually do it?.
