General Discussion / LOL

LOL yeah I remember this chat, although when I came up with the idea I meant for it to be serious... happy with what its turned into, though.

The Chrono Compendium - What we have here is a failure to communicate!

The Chrono Compendium - We're not really elitist, once you get to know us...

The Chrono Compendium - Redefining obsession

The Chrono Compendium - Just because your paranoid doesn't mean they're not actually out to get you

I'll think of some others later

Kajar Laboratories / "Ultimate" Chrono Trigger FAQ/Walkthrough WIP
« on: June 14, 2004, 12:13:46 am »
I was just wondering what the form of your FAQ is going to be.  THe reason I ask is because Adrenaline SL's Chrono Cross FAQ has one of the best layout's I've ever seen; its flowchart style is easier to follow than prose and just sleek.  He said he based it off another FAQ, forget which one.  Anyway, if your early enough in th writing process, I'd highly suggest doing your CT FAQ in that style.  Ask around to see what others think.

First off, I'm elated to see the Compendium is back (again)

Second, Zeality, I'm sorry to bug you over a trivial matter, but can you remove my real name fro teh writting credits of my Radical Dreamers review? I like to avoid using my real name online if possible, just replacing it with 'Cliftor' would be nice.  You see, my father, with whom I avoid speaking to for personal reasons, searched the web for my name and found the review, and tried to use it as a conversation opener, and that made be uncomfortable.  So, if my real naem coudl dissappear, that'd be awesome.

Lastly, and most importantly, I've stopped writing my other two reviews at this time b/c I was hit with one of those 'does my effort really matter' writers blocks.  I'm planning on giving Trigger a 10 out of 10, and I don't see the point, as so many either agree or will soon agree.  The only motivation I see for continuing is that I may change minds, but the kind of people who come to this site agree already anyway.  Also, I'm planning on giving CC a 6/10, something I know most DON'T agree with.  I feel the task of changing minds in that regard is futile, and ultimately pointless.  So I get someone to agree that its mediocre.  What change for the greater good have a affected?

Anyone have any words of wisdom to knock me out of this slump?

Articles / Compendium & Chrono Break
« on: January 23, 2004, 12:27:27 am »
My premonition (or hope) for Chrono Break is a more down to earth universe.  Taking up where Cross left off, it may contain dimensional travel or time travel, but these plot devices would be non-commital. I belive they can continue the use of these complex premises without necessarily making a complex plot.  Hopefully Break will explore loose ends and feature teh reapperence of many missing faces from Cross; I picture a plot revolving around atonement, with Schala as the main character, and her quest to mend the wrongs and heal the wounds her actions in Trigger caused once and for all (complete with reunions with Chrono, Serge, and Magus).  A loaded wish, but its just a wish.

It seems to me that there are lots of people on forums I've visited who would thrive in the environment here, if coaxed enough to visit.  Having more people on board and seeing more full forums would definately be a nice thing.  Is there anyway the 'word' could be gotten out besides just putting the URL in our sigs on other forums? Like, making deals with other Chrono websites to have a link to this site if you provide links to theirs? It just seems to me that there's something that coudl be done for recruitign purposes, the end being even more lively discussions due to idea volume.  Of course, I have no idea what should be done.  MetalKnight or Zeality, do you read me?

Site Updates / Despite what I said, I liked it.

Despite my commentary, I really enjoyed this article as a piece of scientific conjecture.  I'm also suprised my comment got posted.  It feels very cool to belong to a group were your comments are accomodated, regardless of how underdeveloped they are and haphazardly they were written.

Articles / On The Axioms, Corollaries Governing Temporal Transforms
« on: January 19, 2004, 12:01:20 am »
I am of the opinion that time travel, dimension travel, and all related phenomena and oddities in the Chrono Trigger game universe are not governed by any set of axioms. My support for this opinion is the assumption that game creators and storywriters, while aware of how complex a story they were creating, did NOT have any inkling of the need for laws and axioms their complex universe would require to be paradox-less. What I'm saying is: "They made up the story as they went along." There is no rhyme or reason to the phenomena of the Chrono Trigger universe, except as pertaining to making the story enjoyable, coherent, and "plausible." In that vein, I suggest we NOT spend our time formulating laws to govern the game universe, for the formation of such laws makes the incorrect assumption that the game does (or needs to) make sense. Time travel and demension travel are NOT axiomatic, scientific, discussible topics. They are story and plot devices. With that in mind, I suggest that the ONLY demension of ANY signifigance is the True Demension (split buy Kid's actions and reunified by Serge and the Chrono Cross), any demension that anything of note originated from (the Dino-demension), and the Tesseract. All superfulous demensions are meaningless and therefor non-existent unless the struggles of the True demension require them to exist (the Dino-demension). And finally, I suggest that at the conclusion of Chrono Cross's story, there is only one timeline, the True Demension, the world of Chrono, Marle, and Lucca, of Schala and Magus, and so on. Chrono Break will, hopefully, take place in a unified timeline without any need for more conjecture and inference.
