Re: Lunar SSS / SSSC Status & Translator Request?

Okay, cool! I'm glad there's time, because I'm also playing through the games and transcribing text manually that takes some time. Do you mind emailing me the .csv and menu files, to my username at gmail? (I don't check that account unless I'm expecting an email, so any other communication that's pr...

Re: Lunar SSS / SSSC Status & Translator Request?

I would very much like to rewrite the dialogue a bit -- not tons, as I like the WD translation (and parts of the LL and SSH translations), and mainly want to fix things that don't quite match up with what's going on or established personalities. And minor errors. As it happens, I already have a scri...

Re: Sleeping passengers on Hispaniola

So, I've verified that in SSH it is possible to talk to the sleeping passengers and crew also. So probably it's a weird SSST artifact.

Re: GHALEON DID NOTHING WRONG

TBH, I didn't really read the "out of the closet" comment as meaning anything but "his secret identity is now revealed", expressed flippantly. Of course, I tend to be oblivious and/or forgiving of a lot, and I have no personal reason to be sensitive to the phrasing, so it strikes...

Re: The Goddess Althena is Cancelled!

Yep. I've always thought of her as being a goddess relative to everyone else , not a omnipotent/omniscient/etc perfect deity. That's part of why the letter addressing Hiro by name in EB irks me, because that precision future-seeing seemed out of scale with her powers and judgment. I can just barely ...

Re: GHALEON DID NOTHING WRONG

Yeah, troubled is the right word. It's also worth nothing that probably none of the people involved in making the game were thinking of it as being a work that would still be discussed decades later rather than what would be good for a laugh and serve the purpose for the short period of time before ...

Re: In This Thread I Explain Why This Game Isn't Canon.

I read through that bit of dialogue of Peres's after I posted that, so yeah, I was probably wrong there. I don't 100% cede this because there are other translation oddities, plus "in such a way" is so strangely specific that it almost implies the opposite. Like, that he's trying to hide so...

Re: GHALEON DID NOTHING WRONG

Ugh, there is so much about all of that that I hate. The idea that orientation is coded by certain styles, vocal tics, behaviors, when it should be completely irrelevant. Clothing preferences have nothing to do with private preferences. Hobbies have nothing to do with gender, orientation, morality (...

Re: The Goddess Althena is Cancelled!

You know, I may have to dial down the usual level of participation I would enjoy, in both this thread and the one about Ghaleon. I am under too much personal stress at the moment to avoid taking some things personally that I'm sure aren't meant to be. I've put way too many hours into thinking about ...

I don't see why we need to assume Lucia and Jian had a romantic relationship of any sort at all. But she would definitionally outlive him, being immortal. I don't have a problem with widows remarrying. And heck, I know for a fact my grandmother was far happier with her second husband, my step-grandp...

Re: GHALEON DID NOTHING WRONG

There's no reason given for why the Black Dragon went insane. Correlation is not causation. I don't disagree that the Frontier is a horrible place to live, but the fate of the Black Dragon is irrelevant. There's also no reason to think that the Dragon didn't choose to be there, and that therefore an...

Re: The Goddess Althena is Cancelled!

I always figured the "Goddess of Love and Beauty" label was put on her from outside, perhaps by the sculptors who designed her statues. Possibly modelled on some rich patron. Not so sure a statement can be made about the chronology of banishing the Vile Tribe to the Frontier and humans and...

Don't think I agree with you on all this, or even most of it, but I'm supposed to be asleep right now so I'll just say that the only thing about Dragon Song that I can think of offhand that seems truly impossible for me to reconcile with the series as I know it as Titus's transformation at the end o...

You aren't "hammering" anything, thank you. I don't have time right now to search too thoroughly for text, but here are some lines from Cadin. I think there are lines in other towns about getting to the Frontier, including of course Nash's dialogue when he rejoins the party in Tamur with t...

Re: GHALEON DID NOTHING WRONG

The only Vile Tribe members we see talking in TSS are definitely written to imply a group of stupid monsters. Lines like "I've lost count of all the humans I've [some verb]...wait, I don't know how to count!" and dumb-coded laughter. I don't recall offhand if that's also the case in Japane...

Re: GHALEON DID NOTHING WRONG

TSS and SSS are very different when looked at through that lens. In TSS, Ghaleon articulates a disagreement with a principle of the status quo setup -- that Althena could simply order the Dragonmaster to take on a task that was too great for him -- but it seems almost incidental. He blames Althena f...

Really? I feel sure I got them in multiple orders before. Well, next time I get to that point I'll poke at it a bit. Seems most likely to me that the NPC's appearance might be tagged to getting a particular line of dialogue that doesn't show up if you get Kyle before Jessica -- she yells at him for ...

I could see that working. Miria simply being merciful makes more sense than her actually apparently thinking well of Borgan and being swayed by the mountain of gifts. (Though I always felt one of those should have had something interesting to find. Gah, what a place to hide the Borgan Bromide that w...

Re: Finally finished this, mini-review/comparison

Dunno that I'd call DS absurdly easy, given the equipment breakage and inability to select targets in battle. And accidentally running from battle because of background noise in your environment. Sigh.
