To me any attitude that says people should behave in a particular way because of gender is sexist. I repeat my statement. I believe a person should be encouraged to choose what they want to do freely without gender restrictions. If someone then wants to be a stay home parent, financial provider, or...

By the way, what's the untranslated route that springs from rejecting Rin's offer of cooperationg about? Why is it untranslated - is it a completely separate route (meaning lots of separate text) that still falls under the Fate story somehow? Or am I just misinformed? That is Rin's route. It leads ...

...Well you've got me there. Seems that for all the pretty words in the world I can't dress it up for anything more than it ever was, which was indeed sexist. Perhaps in that way [of trying] I'm just too much of an idealist for my own good. Heh, maybe I should be the one "getting hip with the times...

Not having an option as to the order you play the routes is annoying. I would prefer to have all the possibilities the first time I play. But on the other hand having it linear like this means patches can come out after each route has been completed instead of waiting for the whole thing to be done ;)

The only thing that has really bothered me is the incredible linearity of the game. None of the choices really matter. Either you get a little bit of extra information or you hit a dead end. You have to try pretty hard to get End 13. What I liked about Tsukihime was that the choices affected the br...

And since I now see I forgot a couple actions I had ment to write down (missed them as they were written in the margin of my page) I have added the actions 'Watch & Wait' and 'Set Up Ambush'. I guess I will note I clearified a little in the combat rules for the tentative bonuses Ambush and preparedn...

I've renamed the 'Accompany' action to 'Follow' and given a simpler description. It is now a more general action that can be performed by everyone. And that is an awesome map. It has a lot more character then a satellite photo I was thinking of using. Later I will see if I can photoshop up sectors o...

I agree with Dectilon that traditional is often just an idealized way of saying sexist. To me any attitude that says people should behave in a particular way because of gender is sexist. A healthy attitude to try do what is best for all involved (aka protecting/defending at times) isn't bound by gen...

For me ideals do play a bit of a role in who I like. I think they are pretty closely attached to the overall feel and style of a character. And thats whats important - feel and style. Whichever character has the closest to what I'm currently into becomes my fave.

I don't follow how Shirou being a clueless sod relates to his overtly sexist personality. >_>

There is a difference between a fictional legend and an obviously fake story I see where your coming from and I like your take on it. But still I think fictional legends and fictional stories differ only really in the time when they were written. Most fictional legends are pretty much just obviousl...

Fave out of that list. I went with Assassin.

Choice to be shot. Shirou. Annoying hardcore masochist.

Gil is just an old school king, looks fancy though. Shinji is about as pansy sadist as Shirou is masochist, but I prefer the suck up creepy over the self-righteous.

Well I thought about things during my 4 hour trip moving some furniture. I will now be editing my first post as I go, I'm having a fair bit of fun just putting this together. I hope it turns out.

Anyway a decent chunk of what I have is up, any feedback is welcome.

Assassin was fictional so anime and the like seems fair game to me. But if you actual tried to summon someone from something like DBZ I bet you would end up with a minor side character.

DBZ characters... gains power after taking damage, gains power through grunting and/or screaming, can not die, may return to life after death just in case, various universe imploding and/or planet destroying attacks... I've been wondering this since this thread began, but do you think servant can on...
