On the note of the characters, a lot of the information on up on the website is no longer accurate. We'll probably do a big update once the game is close to launch.

Hopefully things like backer characters weren't too difficult to work with. <.<... >.>... <.<...

Yeah, I wrote that like a year and half ago and I fear that if I look at it again I might die of cringe...
Why can only the evil have empires, power and majestic theme music? I reclaim the possibility of creating the Federal-democratic-free Empire! A (democratic) tyranny fueled by the Power of Love!

I'm more worried people are going to complain to me that they didn't get enough focus, or their characters are acting OOC. You guys have Ares characters though, so you're stuck inside side quests, sadly. :T

I wonder if my character's gonna end up as That One Boss... I wonder if I'll end up hating her for gameplay reasons. Going by Youko's posts, Sierra's not pulling punches with the gameplay sections.

If Dark Souls has taught me something is that you always remember the bosses that kill you at least three times.

So as long as we can't be cheesed in some way or another I'll be happy~~

And then on New Game Plus there should be a sidequest where the players have to fight both of us at the same time. Libertas Ares!

No spoilers <3


But, seriously. Storytelling with the Ares characters varies between difficult and impossible because you're not exactly sitting around having pleasant conversation. There's a very good chance you won't get to see much before the new game ++.

Yeah, I understand - most of the story's from the close perspective of Junius, if not all. Either way, New Game++ will be something to work towards if that's the case! Especially if there's a defect route~

Honestly, as long as you got to do something cool with them then I don't mind~ At the beginning I wasn't sure if the characters from the "minor" backers even had a line (in fact, I'm not even sure if they actually do now; maybe you're talking about storytelling through gameplay a la Dark Souls?).

I'd love to tell story through item descriptions, but the thing is we don't actually have that many items period nor room for descriptions, so that's more or less impossible, but for now that's still up in the air.

As far as how many lines backer characters get, pretty much all of the side characters ARE backer characters. Eg. Your fellow Commodores in your fleet.

How many lines a person gets is directly related to what role and personality they picked for their character since that takes precedence over inserting them into a spot with a lot of lines. This, however, leads to rather unequal representation between said side characters, so I hope people won't be up in arms with me about including or excluding their character. That said, I've taken A LOT of liberties with the characters that do have major speaking roles, so I'm just hoping I don't get lynched for making someone's OC act OOC. lol
