  1. Man... I don't even know how to thank you... Right now, my head is having a huge creative storm, and I can already say that my story is much, much better now. My mind is made up! Now, instead of "Superpowers" the world will have a kind of "Magic" separated in three sections: Emitters = Manipulation of fire, lightning and ice (as you would be shooting). Transformation = Which give you animal characteristics or powers of the same, like a werewolf, or Tsuyu from MHA. (Like, they are powers with a heavy connection to mother nature, and because of that, they allow you to transform or have animal characteristics). And lastly: Support: Healing powers or defensive powers like barriers ou similars (Kinda like an RPG). But physical powers like: Super Strength, Durability and Enhanced Speed are things that DO NOT EXIST (even Flash's super speed wouldn't exist, nor would muscular augmentation like master Roshi's buff form from Dragon Ball Super), because they don't fall into any of the categories mentioned above! Making the protagonist an "Outcast"! Once again, thanks a lot Indigoasis!
  2. You really think so? 😃 Yes, the superpowers will be fundamental to the story, it was something I couldn't think of dispensing with. The villain's origin, by the way, alludes to that of the protagonist and shows the effect that the surge of superpowers can have on someone who never had them. But now, talking about her: I suppose that for this pretext to be well executed, her power must really stand out among the other Supers. In this world, there are fire manipulators, ice manipulators, lightning manipulators, flying men, men with animal features, or even a toilet face man! What could she have to really make her stand out among the other supers? Is what she has enough, or would she need something more to really be more super than the rest? That's a pretty good suggestion! Thanks for the attention.
  3. You think so? With all due respect, I honestly don't see much similarity. In MHA, Izuku received the powers from All Might, and as soon as he received the powers, he stopped being an underdog because he started fitting in with society. Basicaly, we only see Izuku as an underdog for one episode. In my story, the character would develop the power on her own, and from the point that these powers came, she would become the Underdog and stay in this position for more than 12 years. Thanks Indigoasis! Whenever i need help, i always see you comenting and giving good advices. Thanks man! And you are right, maybe I used the wrong expression, I think "Outcast" really suits her better. But then, looking at it from the point of view of an Outcast story, could my story be better, or is what I have enough? Or what changes could I make to improve it? I'm open to suggestions. And my story is much more than that, it's good, I swear. This superpower part is like just a pretext for my protagonist having powers, and being an Outcast in a world with powers just the same. It is also a pretext for the protagonist in her quest for respect, as it is the main theme of the story and her motivation. (She has other more complex motivations but I will not unnecessarily tell you about them.) But if you guys have suggestions of a better pretext, i'm all ears! (And remember, I'm only asking this to see a reader's point of view.)
  4. So, i'm writing a story that goes like this: In my world, superpowers exist and almost every human being has them. But among them, there is a little girl who was born without powers, but over the years, developed a genetic condition never seen before, which basically turned her into a super-soldier. With no powers at all, she could lift cars at the age of seven, have highly resistant durability and enhanced speed, not to mention the side effects she gained over time, such as inhibiting certain feelings, changing the color of her eyes whenever she felt a different feeling, and not being able to feel heat or cold. Other people call her a monster and a freak because of this (because they are actually afraid of her, they think she is some kind of new model of human being, and this also makes them jealous, because they are not like her. So they take it out on her with mistreatment, like Lex Luthor in Superman). She suffers a huge lack of respect and wants to do anything to get it. My intentions were to break some of the stereotypes present in fiction, like: Stereotypes: In a world with superpowers, the underdog is the one who does NOT have superpowers. My version: In a world with superpowers, the underdog is the one who also HAS superpowers. But I am in doubt... Like, I know it doesn't make sense but... I don't know, I want her to be an underdog because she has powers, but I also want her world to have superpowers, will I have to sacrifice one of those? What do you guys say? Be honest please, is my underdog story flawed? What could I do to improve it or at least make it coherent or believable? Tell me EVERYTHING you think and don't spare me anything!
  5. No way! I just finished book one, I'm still in shock with Lene and Lambert. Yeah, i know, but i discovered about the decline of the series, the letter, and the overall things that screwed up the series along the years, so i want to only follow the mangas.
  6. Hey dudes, this might be an random topic, but i tough it was so cool that i couldn't resist making this thread. 😄 So, i was reading "I'm In Love With The Villainess" And the name of the world that the characters live in, is called: Revolution (I know that is the video game, but still.) And that reminded me of the world of Remnant from RWBY. So i figured... "Wow! They took random words that have a good sonority and put in, and they fitted pretty well!" So this is the question i want to do here: Which "Random" words, would fit into fantasy worlds? I want to see your takes in! Plus, talking about RWBY, i want to start reanding the mangas, what should i know beforehand? There's an specific order? Which is the right or wrong? Which is worth it, which is not?
  7. Hey guys! I came to bother you guys a little more with my book. So, my book is narrated in the first person, and in other scenes (where the character is not present) it is narrated in the third person. And in the fourth chapter, the characters end up in a haunted forest, and end up getting separated. And I was thinking about the following: "Since they are separated, instead of narrating only the protagonist in the first person, I could narrate the vision of each character in the first person! And after this forest arc was over, the visions of the others would go back to being shown in the third person." But then I thought of the following... and if the reader is like, "Hey! Suddenly we see what the other characters think. Why didn't he do that from the beginning instead of using the third person in previous chapters? " I wanted this to be that unique thing in the chapter, because of the forest. That's why I came to ask for opinions, how would you readers react? Should i do it? Or not?
  8. Hey guys, my brother is an artist, a hell of an artist and currently, we don't have money to buy a digitizing table so he has to make the drawings on paper and then transfer them to the PC with a printer. But I wanted the scanned images to come out with better and smoother quality, so I came to ask if any artists here know the best PC scanning program. (One thing I'd like, but it's not mandatory, is that I'd like it to have a smoothing-in-line option)
  9. Okay, hear me out. Recently I became interested in the Kunio-Kun franchise, and decided to test the game: Downtown Special. (The name is bigger but I don't remember) That for those who don't know, it is one of the most INNOVATIVE AND SPECTACULAR NES games! Okay, seriously now, it's a Beat em Up, where you play as Kunio, a Japanese warrior who wants to find a cure for the curse that was placed on his master while dealing with his girlfriend's kidnapping. The game supports two players simultaneously, but if you play in singleplayer, kunio will still be accompanied by the second player, only it will be controlled by artificial intelligence. In the game menu you can change the settings to change the behavior of the AI. In the game, you must cross all of feudal Japan, looking for the minions and subordinates of the biggest *Gangster* (I couldn't find a better word) in Japan, until you reach him and defeat him. But your targets, are mobile, and will be walking around the map randomly, so you should go all over Japan after them. The game has cities with shops that can sell healing and food items and shops with armor and equippable weapons that boost your stats, (the best ones are found in secret shops) but that's not all! the subordinates you defeat can become your allies! some will offer themselves right away, for others you should have specific items in your inventory. the game also has a level up system, you can even move in the menu to determine the Growth Rate of the level ups. So in short, it's a beat em up, with shops, equips, an open world, recruitable enemies and brand new moves. A beat em up Rpg! Is there any other game like this? I would love to play, and I would also recommend everyone to play at least a little bit of Downtown Special.
  10. You know what? Ninethlain is right! Trying to fuse two random names is dumb, i know i like the name Ace, But I don't think it will happen, so you know what? Forget "Ace", just suggest me good Pseudonyms. In fact I did it ambiguously on purpose for the following reasons: 1- Not to give any spoilers. 2- To arouse people's curiosity, and I did it!
  11. If you guys have more suggestions, feel free to comment.
  12. Of the following names, which do you think would fit best as an author name? Ace Highwind? Shadow Ace? Ace Leonhart? Ace Lionheart? Or none sounds good? These names just came into my head and i thought in asking opinions.
  13. You managed to do just what I wanted! This is the type of suggestions that i want, Thanks! I think the puns that go into the Ridiculous category depend, some will sound ridiculous and some won't, so it depends. Scientific names don't catch me much attention, i think it's because i'm pretty dumb in the scientific area 😅. Mythological names call me a lot of attention because I really like Greek tales and stories, so many that Hades is one of my favorite games! Whether it's long or short depends on the name, I like short names because my memory isn't very good, but a name that's too short would be hard to recognize so a longer one would be good, what helps me memorize the longer ones is the sound. of them, the better the sound, the easier I'll decorate. The Badass/Rad names could sound ridiculous, but i think it depends too. A mix of everything is also appreciated, because i can choose the ones i like. Actually, it's just because I think it sounds cool, I've always liked the name of Ace Attorney and When I saw Ace from 30XX, I was like: " Man, that's awesome. I would like to have that name. i think it fits me." Plus: Suggesting names that would match my book would benefit me the most, as it is my biggest reason to change my name. My book is fiction and fantasy, and that includes: Mystic Stones, Superpowers and Ancient Knights in Modern Times. Of course, I don't intend to hide my entire identity behind a pseudonym, when I release my book, I'll go by my real name too, and the pseudonym will serve as a nickname.
  14. Just something i forgot to mention: It doesn't need to sound cool like "Yeah man, this is cool and RAD!" What i mean with cool was that i don't want something ridiculous, i just want something with a good sonority and that can be remembered, kinda like OPM's creator has the pseudonym: "ONE".
