  1. Honestly, I firmly preferred Korra to ATLA. Though the shift in target audience was definitely a strong part of that; my experience with ATLA was definitely held back by some of the Children's Television trappings which aren't actually a fault in the show itself. And of course, Korra's legacy - you almost certainly know this through osmosis anyway, but: By the same guys, Dragon Prince is worth checking out as well, though the animation budget for the first couple of episodes appears to be about $12.
  2. For me it was pretty much when talking to your tech became a thing. Hard, hard no for me.
  3. They aren't very good, but you'll be fine long-term, especially if you give them scrolls to bolster their strength.

    Game

    I'd strongly advise the OP to put some more information about the game in the OP. I've seen you talking about it before, but if people haven't, they're unlikely to click on a shady mediafire link.
  5. Javelins and handaxes were ludicrously overpowered for a good long time, as IO's timeline illustrates. Eventually IS realised that what was intended to be a side-arm for when a melee character is two tiles out was instead their all-purpose weapon, and started nerfing them aggressively... and of course in 3H for that purpose you can just hand everyone an iron bow. So you aren't wrong, but it's just kind of hilarious to me given the time I've spent on this site that now the utility of javs/handaxen across the series - once the pinnacle of weapons in the games most frequently discussed - is now in question.
  6. Depends entirely on context. What genre the story is, what age range the target audience is, what the villain is precisely guilty of, who the heroes are that presumably have him at their mercy... Don't feel you have to kill him, but it may be the most natural thing for the heroes to do in that situation. It may also not.
  7. even in fftf this thread is too bad to let live.
  8. I mean, it's pretty basic knowledge that 'how are you' is by default a greeting / acknowledgement, not a genuine question. This is also not a bad thing. It's a signal they do, at least, care about your wellbeing, even if nobody involved wants to have a Moment about it. You are allowed to answer in the negative - 'not great', 'been better' - so it isn't purely ornamental, either.
  9. Define 'grinding'. It's pretty hard to avoid finding optional fights while playing normally. I picked a few out of my way when people were on the cusp of promotion, which arguably counts. It's certainly possible, in any case. Most FEs have been completed with 0% growths.
  10. Scene 7: Finding the smallest Everest possible
  11. Fjorm/Summoner is always going to seem weird, until they do more to make The Summoner distinct from The Player. Always did want Fjorm and Laegjarn to get together, but honestly, it's been years and I don't honestly remember how much subtext there really was between them. But hey, the LP alt's about to get there, so we'll see. I like Fjorm, though it's taken until more recent FBs for her to really start to have a personality. I guess this also makes her canon bi. And yeah, I'm more or less happy she's relevant again. The ship itself is just... weird, to me.
  12. merged with the other, identical topic which was locked - for being a fucking garbage fire - due to being a blatant attempt to circumvent the lock.
  13. Scene 6: "I'm eager to brandish my carrot in battle"
  14. Moved to the correct problem. You've lost more time trying to save-scum than you'd save by having the statboosters. Just play normally.
  15. What is terrible about the localisation? Even if people agree, they might well agree for different reasons (e. g. the 'actually completely direct translations are good !!' crowd) that don't actually give you what you want.
  16. the funny thing is the actual song ~it's coming home~ is from is about hosting the thing and being consistently shit
  17. As if England / the English are only insufferable when they're winning. I'm not Scottish, but even so I'll be consoling myself with the fact that at least this is an England side comprised almost entirely of saints, and Jordan Pickford. They're standing up to racism, Rashford literally fed starving children ffs. So I can be happy for them as individuals and the handful of English people I know. It's still a pretty grey excuse for a silver lining.
