5 Steps to Write Better Female Characters

Good article! I think the female lead in my game does manage to follow these 5 steps, so I'm glad :)

Whoa nice! How did you do that perspective?

Hail to the presbydent!

[Poll] How do you pronounce kentona?

Also:
"I used to think it was ketona, without the first n, and that you were a girl"

In my defense, it was a less progressive era, so since HR had a female protag, I thought, the creator must also be a girl. Makes sense.

kentonb?



KENTONAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

dear kentona. this is a vote of no confidence, please hand the site over to me

If someone wants to become a powerless figurehead whose only job around here is to pay for the bills every month, then I say let him pay!

[Poll] How do you pronounce Lucavi?

I'm guessing it's pronounced similar to how it is in Russian:

The Russian word lukavy (лукавый) means "deceptive". It is commonly used as a euphemism for the Christian Devil. It is related to the Greek word lykaugea, which means "twilight".


Personally, I say it as Loo Sah Vee, with the same emphasis as the word Lucifer

Road To Paradise - The Dragon

I got a "RGSS player stopped working" error twice, and both times it happened in battle while I was choosing skills for the dragon (fire).


I feel like you have an interesting world here, but the story delivery doesn't quite hit the mark. For example, the info dump given by the Time Dragon at the beginning is kinda ineffective, because we don't know any of the other people or other places he is talking about yet, and they have no meaning or context to the player yet, who's also not going to remember what was said. The same kind of goes for all the bookshelf lore being a bit too early to be meaningful.

On the other hand, a good example of delivery is when the second guys says to the main char "Let me guess, you think dragon kind shouldn't have shared magic with humans etc", and when the 2nd girl says to the princess "Oh you're from that place that thinks the dragons shouldn't rule" or something. These ones work better, because they tell me something about the world AND at the same time are relevant to the current characters and interaction.

I also like the Acolyte girl and her dialogue.

Hey, I have some offensive things to say.

Pixel size inconsistency is not a real thing. It is perfectly fine to use graphics of different pixel sizes together.

From one of the games in the Secret of Mana series, I think
