Double the databases!

So, while I was re-formatting the dialog for Yanfly's messaging system, I thought, what the hey, let's take this opportunity to put in the database script for Momo's book. Which, by the way, is currently being called "Masudu's Musings" in a hack attempt to be cute.

Now, for those of you that were paying attention which is probably zero, this game is in the same world as Arbiters From Another World. Wait, let me re-phrase that. It's in the same world where that game started in, not where it ended! Huge difference, there! So, yeah, there are plans to make references to Gakuska Island, the Korn Tribe, and the Yokoki School of Magic. Note that I will probably not make specific mention of any characters from that game, but, the events at Yoemon are of import to the House of Gojo, if not the other Noble Houses situated in I-have-not-come-up-with-a-name-for-this-mainland-yet.

Anyway, I've done a bit of work on this game's encyclopedia already. I'm a tad worried I might be revealing something too early with an entry or two. It's not something I wish to speak of openly because POTENTIAL GAME SPOILERS, but it may be something I may need to discuss with my beta-testers. W-when the time comes for them to have another look at this, yeah? Let's not be hasty!

So, I made a quick-count, and there's 22 guards in Castle Askigaga, but only 8 in Castle Hachisuka? That doesn't seem right! Not to mention the maids in the Guest Quarters, and a "flavor" character in the Armory and General Store in Castle Askigaga. Geeze, no wonder I was feeling a tad overwhelmed with the amount of NPC dialog I had to do! I need to cut that crap down! Make fewer, but more memorable sequences, 'n stuff!

Total aside: I may want to look into making a different graphic for female soldiers and officers. Using Actor1 slot 4 (Ulrika) and Actor1 slot 6 everywhere seems a tad silly. Yet, using People4 slot 7 and People4 slot 8 for male solders and officers is kosher? Hrmmm...

Speaking of talking to my testers (Hey, it's part of the main content of the blog! That counts, right?), there's a few thoughts/questions running through my head concerning story presentation, and, I kinda want to present those thoughts/notes to them.

I'm... not sure why I'm typing this, and not just compiling the notes, creating a tester's-only page, and letting them have at it.

So, rather than compile the notes I was talking about last post, my Muse decided to spend the last hour (Or five? I have no idea! I can easily loose track of time when I'm "in the zone"!) in rewriting the rest of the dialog in-game. Well, I hope it's the rest of the dialog!

Anyway, I still need to look at balancing the mini-bosses and end-dungeon boss of the Temple of Body. However, this is certainly one of those "Marrend has tapped himself completely out" moments. Uh, no completely obvious Magic: the Gathering reference with that last sentence either!
