    Let me just tell you now, Tales always, with the exception of all of the older ones and some of the newer ones, has screen cracking transitions. Actually, only the more recently popular ones outside of Japan have screen cracking. Symphonia, Abyss, Vesperia. There are newer ones like Graces that don't have screen cracking.

    I'm just using screen cracking because to the rest of the world, screen cracking in this way is signature of a Tales game.

    Real good banners up there, araveutsinaga.

    One thing I will say, though, about the several trails of the sword moves. I find it good either what has been done, a trail for each move (perhaps the line is too wide and would be better thinner and with some degree of transparency?) or blur the last one. But the black screen with slashes?. I utterly hate that.

    And once again, allow me to ovation this comic.

    New comic, and I must say I'm proud of how authentic I made the layout and the system look. Apologies for it being smaller, but I needed to make it look like the actual game.

    Best viewed with this or this.

    And the parody is not complete without this



    Boss battle will continue later. By now you should also know why he's named Gale. I hoped the Stratos would give it away. If you need reminding: Lightning, Snow, Cloud, Squall.

    I await the person who will use the Pokemon system for battling.

    I've lurked since the start, but couldn't think of anything to say until now. You've got an excellent comic, and I can't wait to see where this goes.

    The only game mechanics I'm more or less familiar with are FF7, Pokemon and... SSBM/SSBB.

    Yeah, I'll like to see that.

    It's the way it is. Final Fantasy 1, 1st boss. Garland is a normal sized knight, but in battle he's doubled the size of the player. Hence, Gale is the same thing. It's how the old FF's worked, bosses were always huge.

    I thought it was appropriate that the first boss battle would be like Final Fantasy 1's first boss battle., the first WIDELY popular JRPG. I was supposed to mention the size thing in the comic, but I thought that people would recognize the older FF's.

    It's the Tales system for all except the boss fights were another JRPG is parodied.

    I must admit this wasn't what I expected when the knight said they can shape the battlefield. It was a nice (and funny) surprise though.

    Mostly, yes. I also plan to have them in the background while the party travels on the world map, talking through skits, which is another thing non-Tales players will have to get used to.

    Actually that seems like a lot of work for nothing, if I draw an awesome battle with three characters fighting a horde of ligars, only to cover it up with a dark gray screen and characters' heads talking.

    Opinions?

    Maybe have most random encounters as filler/bonus strips, with a couple of particulary clever/eventfull ones in the regular story? Also, I had totally forgotten about skits, I'm glad that you didn't.

    Nice jab at primitive RPG game-play.

    Also it's always good to see gameplay mechanics used as a plot point, rather than just a cheap joke.

    On a certain other forum, there's a M.S.P.A fanvanture where half the party's problems were solved through abusing the RPG system. for insiatnce, using role-playing EXP to level up at-will, and deciding to ignore the turn-based system and just punch the other guy in the face on his turn. Good times.

    I'm sure your fans wouldnt mind a few gag comic strips. But don't waste unnecessary time. But if you wanted to parody popular japanese manga, have our hero lose and go spend a few chapters on "training".

    New comic.

    Sorry for the lateness. Real life has kept me busy. To give you a hint, I was a pall-bearer.

    Anyway, I can't wait to get out of the FF battle so I will try to get the next and last FF battle out quickly. Depends.
