    Wooo. First poast!
  4. Hey why not make a snip with Matilda going to Albion to check on Tiffania and pulling a rescue that will ultimately lead to them being shipped to Tristain?

    Because remember even before the war there were Rumors of a Fairy living in south Saxe (town thing), so with all the rucus caused by Asuna crown well forces are bound to investigate.

    The best way to keep Tiffa safe NOW is to hide her among the Fairies.

  8. Yes, recording crystals for the moment Rio finally says the ultimate wrong thing with most of the Fae watching. The guy may be good at rallying up a mob of the trolls but with the Lords and Regin pointing out the multiple Lhamthanc sized holes in his statements/plans he is going to lose his temper.

  12. Rio will be shouting at least. Sakuya on the other hand, I can see leaning heavily on the 'Lady of the Sylphs' persona that she has been developing and just getting colder and more composed as the 'conversation' continues.

    Mine gods, that is a VERY LONG index of recursive Fanfiction :D Have +1 like just for the headache of maintaining that list jwolf.

    Also, TH? The stuff right at the end (Halkegenia Offline, Yui! No Boys!, and such) are already in jwolf's index. Just saying.

    Edit: instead of cluttering up this thread, I have saved TRIST Cast List (info) in bb-code form on my computer. I'll post an updated version of that list in this thread when a) there are additions to that list, and b) if the older thread gets locked.

    Triggerhappy's Approved Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

    What is HalO?
    -The acronym for Halkeginia Online, the magnum opus of TH. (first use)(first snip use)(first author use)

    Will the Fae introduce new technologies to Halkeginia?
    - Yes, but it will take time. It has been confirmed that farming techniques such as crop rotation will be introduced, and it is likely that military standardization and interchangeable parts will be introduced soon as well. Other than that, most technologies will take time (on the order of years) to reproduce, even with the contents of the Gutenberg Library available to them. However, the Tristain Royal Institute of Science and Technology appears to be exploring the technical applications of steam power and magic, and semi-modern medicine is possible as well. Firearm development has been discussed in detail.

    Fae magic
    -The way Fae magic works has not been definitively stated. That said, it is no longer quite as limited, and the players will soon start picking it apart to create their own spells. It is possible that Triggerhappy will be making use of Catsy's work here.

    Are Fae spells racially locked?
    -TH has indicated that affinities and talents are race-specific, but almost all spells can be cast by any race if their Magic skill level is high enough.

    Have the Fae been nerfed?
    -Only in so much as they can’t take a blade through the heart and keep going, or take a face full of fire (unless they’re a Salamander). Healing magic is slightly less effective, but only to the extent that they can’t regrow missing limbs, and resurrection spells are more “resuscitation” than outright bringing back the dead (relevant link). Battle healing also survived the transition. Other than that, Triggerhappy has not stated how much less durable the Fae now are, in order to allow for narrative causality.

    What is Halkeginia’s tech level?
    -See Flere’s “Back to Basics

    Power Levels
    -First, please see the “tentative force chart”. Second, please note that it is tentative, and likely could use updating. Third, please note that it is a 'force' chart, it doesn't take into account relative skill, ability, and circumstances.

    Other than that, keep in mind that Halkeginian mages can turn their opponents' spells back on them. This was confirmed to work on Fae magic in the Tarbes Arc. However, if the anime is taken as canon mid-level Fae mages are quite powerful by Halkeginian standards, and high-end (Kagemune, a Salamander mage, has a skill level over 900) may be able to mission kill airships. To put it in D&D terms, Halk mages are multiclass, while Fae mages are artillery and controllers. They serve different roles on the battlefield, and should not be directly compared to each other.

    How much has the transition affected the Fae?
    -The transition downloaded all the relevant information related to their skill into their heads. Other racial attributes are starting to show up as well.

    How fast can the Fae fly?
    -Based on information in the LNs and the anime, Catsy has calculated an average speed of 75 kph. Aightaight2's calculations of a dragon's speed using information from the Tarbes arc support this. Word of author is that cruising speed is actually somewhat higher, with most Fae being able to achieve a sprint speed of above 100 kph.

    Will Sinon show up?
    -It is possible. However it would require a GGO to be developed without the Seed (unlikely), Sinon to become involved (unlikely), and Tiffania to summon a familiar after the previous two requirements happen (very unlikely). It is unlikely that Sinon will appear in HalO. However, TH has created a possible way for it to happen. So maybe, maybe not.

    Are the Sleeping Knights in Halkeginia?
    -In canon, the Sleeping Knights joined ALO after the Seed was distributed. However, Triggerhappy has confirmed that canon has been changed and the Sleeping Knights were present in ALO at the time of the transition.

    Can the Grail of Resurrection still be used?

    Will Louise ever get a familiar?
    -Yes. We don’t know who yet, but it will be revealed. The current most popular theory is Heathcliff. (discussion)(discussion)

    What is with Bradley McCloud’s avatar and those pictures he keeps posting?
    -Apparently he knows someone who is making a comic that has yet to be published.

    Will the windstone crisis still occur?
    -This question has come up in every single thread (yes, including threads 5, 6 & 7), but has yet to be revealed. Theories range from yes; to no, Yggdrasil will eat them; to Yggdrasil will eat the ones under Tristain; to Yggdrasil will hold Tristain together when it takes flight.

    Which real-life nations are the Halkeginian nations expys of?
    -This has been discussed here and hinted at by TH here. The best estimate is that they are early modern equivalents of
    Germania = The Holy Roman Empire
    Tristain = Belgium + lower part of the Netherlands (geographically); France (socially)
    Albion = England
    Gallia = France (geographically); mix of France & Spain (politically)
    Romalia = Papal States / Italy

    How will Halkeginia react to the Fae?
    -Word of author here.

    Did Jotunheimr survive the transfer?
    -We don't know yet, but it was discussed. Triggerhappy was being cryptic.

    Fae offspring
    -A number of possible answers to the race of Fae children have been proposed. Triggerhappy has stated they will be the race of the mother.

    Where are the Fae cities now?
    Exsequen's list here.

    Will Derflinger or Excaliber be used in this fic?
    -Triggerhappy has stated that it is unlikely that Kirito will use them, but he has hinted that Leafa, Klein, or Caramella may wield Derflinger, while Wales may get Excaliber.

    Did items from ALO transfer over?
    -While players no longer have access to their inventories, it is likely that any loot in dungeons/ruins was transported over, including legendary items.

    Were any of the players in ALO gender-flipped?
    -In Fulldive games your account is gender locked. In canon, full sim VR tech transmitting signals of incorrect anatomy to a person's mind causes side effects in the long term. SAO itself didn't have this feature because it was implemented in later generation games.(The Shiori are a unique exception, made canon by the author here.)

    What race are the 300 SAO survivors?
    -Most of the survivors are a default template with no racial bonuses or weaknesses. Asuna is a Maeve, with yet to be revealed racial attributes.

    How does Triggerhappy make his story decisions?
    -Word of Author :p

    Are there pairings?
    -Of course there are pairings! KiritoxAsuna! Oh...you meant other than them. Read the fic and find out! :p

    Suggested Guidelines for Posting on these Threads
    Shown below are the various themes and issues that have been discussed with effects on the various threads TH has created. Thus they have been marked and classified into categories that show why they have been marked and how heated they can get.

    Most have already been talked about, and may have already been answered, usually asking again about such things leads into debates that have already occurred before, eating up thread space normally reserved for posting the next chapter, crack, or new questions and discussions. This is referred to as a 'roundabout'. Avoid roundabouts for everyone's sake here, know when to sit back and finish when things have reached that point.

    Class SS: Moderator Hammer (Touch and the moderators will hammer you instead of TH.)

    - Bitching about people you have on ignore.

    Class S: (Do not by any means touch or TH will get very angry.)
    These four sparked a fifty page flame war in the fourth thread. If you must ask about them, PM Triggerhappy directly:
    - Power levels.
    - Balancing.
    - Overpoweredness.
    - Difference in power between magic systems.
    - Accel World. Apparently some people don’t like this subject. More importantly, it has nothing to do with HalO
    - Karin hatred. (We've had this before, angry TH is not nice.)

    Class A: (Discussed already, potentially aggravating, avoid.)

    -Modern firearms, and related technologies. (Rifling, bullets, so and so.)
    -Hating on characters. (We know people hate Dunwell already, or Louise.)
    -Louise' new familiar. (She'll get one later after Dunkirk, please be patient.)
    -Fae as Familiars. (Flame bait, also results in hating on Louise on occasions.)

    Class B: (Discussed to ash already, move along now.)

    -Sinon. (Her status without GGO, trauma, and how to bring her into Halkeginia.)
    -VRMMOs created from the Seed. (VR development progress without the Seed.)
    -Status of Yuuki and the Sleeping Knights. (Author's choice of deviation from canon.)

    Class C: (Been there done that, save for some other time.)

    -Fae lifespans. (Answered by author)
    - GB from the Transition. (After SAO, new games prevented players from selecting between male and female.)(The Shiori are a unique exception)

    DISCLAIMER: DISCLAIMER: The above is a general suggestion, except for Class S and SS, which should be avoided at all costs. Technology topics are generally accepted so long as you avoid guns. You are welcome to start a topic on any of the marked topics below Class S provided you can keep it from devolving into a flame war and try to avoid getting into roundabout discussions, they eat space. Openings of Class S or SS topics should best be left to TH to avoid unwanted flame wars. This guide is updated as long as I spot new requests for topics to mark.


    P.S.: Re-read the first line of the disclaimer once you have finished reading. It is a suggestion, they can still be discussed. Unless they are Class S or SS. Yes, I will keep saying that because that flame war was very unpleasant.

    P.P.S.: After which, re-read the SS one, unless you want to sour the friendly neighborhood moderator's mood.

    Special thanks to Exsequens for compiling the list of forbidden topics, and aightaight2 for finding relevant links/topics, as well as NanayaMode for finding the posts on Jotunheimr.

    Addendum: aightaight2 has now officially put more time into this than I have.

  20. Archons

    Archons Slightly Biased

    Regarding Rio...part of the reason I don't really like his character is that he does t provide the legitimate political opposition that TH is trying to get at. As Jwolfe just posted, him snapping and starting a rage fueled shouting match seems entirely appropriate for him. Yet, unfortunately, TH has set him up as the primary voice of opposition.

    I get that we are seeing some internal decent among the Lords, but it all seems very sterile. I can't imagine there isn't a single civil right attorney among the Fae that is appalled that the Lords are essentially bring them into a war to fight a dictator, for a dictator, at the behest of children. One fact that Rio brought up is that there is apparently no established date for elections, nor a plan to gradually phase the existence of the Faerie Lord seat of office out. Or at least reduce to he point where a Lord couldn't immediately grab and consolidate power if they chose.

    I guess I'm just upset that sofar all we have seen is backwards thinking. It would be nice to see someone in the opposition to the Lords that forces the issue of the ongoing establishment of democracy. It's important to remember that the longer things to without an active plan, the easier it is for those in power (both human and Fae) to maintain the status quo.

    I blame myself for this to be honest. But well, six weeks seems like too little time for a really articulated oppossition to show up, but plenty of time for an asshole to start shouting really loudly and a political commentator to start voicing gentle concerns.

    Don't hit on Code Red, I have case in stock for just in case (zombie apocalypse, general apocalypse, mutant apocalypse, movie/games/anime marathons.) You never know when you need that extra bit of crazy to get you through the day.

    Its called Code Red for a reason and one must use its power carefully...
  24. Exsequens

    Exsequens Still Here. Just Quiet.

    Need me to carry along the Suggested Guidelines among other things? Though I doubt we'll need it for now till things start getting dicey.

    The weather is rainy, yay, I'm still sick, fuck. Prematurely running out of energy quite often to do drawing and the recent upstage of ants isn't doing my artistic spirit any favors.

    I think this time I want to try doing it with background rather than plain to match the SB back, last time I tried adding an extra dimension, this time a background, slowly I plan to push it till I can get something nice.

    On side note for TH, aside from the last set of questions I sent 2 weeks ago (The response to your response on ALO armors which I'm still waiting on.), do you normally prefer armors to be more thematic or looks-does-not-equate-stats?

    A good way to look at this is say, take Runescape for example, Runescape's equipment are generally thematic, what is warrior armor looks the part, and what goes for each type goes, each rising tier of armor looks stronger than the last. Compare this to some games, where your steel armor may well be paper mache, and that silk robe that gives people a good view of your cleavage might stop a tank in its tracks.
  25. I don't know about TH, but I would prefer if armour reflected the strength of its material...unless we're talking something like "paper body armour" here that apparently is quite effective.
