Characters, Plot, and Themes / Vera(RD)/Marle ideas
« on: May 23, 2018, 08:12:06 pm »
I think the general consensus around here is that Vera from Radical Dreamers is Marle doing some infiltration coup stuff, but what's your favorite explanation for "why she so old tho"?

I figured some kind of magical disguise made sense, but my husb likes the "Bill and Ted" style option of Marie's future grandma type self going back in time to fix shit and help the Radical Dreamers out

Chrono / Gameplay Casual Discussion / Magus/Masamune connection
« on: July 12, 2017, 12:52:16 am »
I think that Janus could have been intended to be the original "wielder" of the Masamune. It makes sense given that Schala had Doreen, that their respective brothers would be meant for each other, too. When he was approaching Schala et al in the original timeline flashback, he could have had the red knife (essentially taking Crono's place), or Melchior decided last minute not to put that responsibility on him.

This also makes the moral ambiguity of the Masamune in RD and CC make a little more sense, imo.

How involved was Lucca in Belthesar's plan in Chrono Cross? How much did she know and contribute?

So like did Lavos make the mutants in 2300AD and the Black Omen or were they deformed by his energy, like radiation or chemically?

Chrono / Gameplay Casual Discussion / anti-theories
« on: April 10, 2012, 01:13:33 pm »
In this thread, post solutions or theories you know aren't canon, bcout that are more concise or more condusive to a happy ending or just plain fun.
the blonde girl at the end of Cross is actually Harle. She fnally became a real girl and is looking for her own "Serge"

I was looking at stuff from Radical Dreamers because I'm trying to figure out how to draw Esmeld, when I found this sprite sheet of enemies in the game. I recognize all of them but the creepy face on the far top right. Where did that one show up?

Polling / Magus Magus Magus Magus Magus
« on: February 23, 2012, 03:04:39 pm »
That's right, I'm making a list of who to send to my own Zeality style death camps fun farms.

I pick Magil. The change from a child that blames himself, to someone who tries to be completely self-reliant, to someone that others can actually rely on is, in my mind, much more interesting and challenging than someone who reverts back to a self-blaming child from despair. "Darker" isn't better.

Chrono Compendium Discussion / Japanese Ages, Heights, Etc. for Trigger
« on: January 16, 2012, 11:53:53 pm »
Hey, I was bored and decided to read the Japanese Wikipedia page for Chrono Trigger run through my browser's translator, and they list the ages, heights, weights, etc. for Crono and a few other characters in Trigger. I don't know where the information came from specifically, though, but should we consider adding this to the Encyclopedia?

Why is Kid's hair blonde when Schala's hair is blue?

If you honestly believe it was dyed, please give a good reason for it, or at least one that doesn't follow with "also Magus dyed his hair, while he was a blood-mongering warlord completely dedicated to revenge he found the time to gather blueberries and-" yadda yadda.

[edit] Also in Radical Dreamers, was it the Frozen Flame that sent SchKid through time, or was it her pendant?
Quote from: RD
But the stone, It had other plans for her...Turning back
the hands of her clock, scattering her memories, she was granted another
chance. Since the precious stone was in her possession, she carried with her
all its will and power. And so, she was born into this era, returning to
reality as a mere infant...

Chrono / Gameplay Casual Discussion / Anybody Re-Translate Cross Yet?
« on: July 18, 2011, 12:52:59 am »
When I spout my catchphrase "the only thing Chrono Cross did wrong was the plot and characters", lately I've been asked "so was there any difference in the Japanese version?" I don't have an answer for this beyond the Honeygood accent system, so I figured I'd ask around here.

The major things I want to know are character "voices" (accents/lack thereof, development, etc.) and plot differences, but a full translation would most likely end up with a lot of good surprises, and might make for new questions.

Chrono / Gameplay Casual Discussion / Is _____ really all that cool?
« on: June 23, 2011, 04:34:05 pm »
So I was doing some research for a fanfic and got to the point where I wondered which characters would fit in what parts, and I said to myself "Okay time to use some of those cool characters from Chrono Cross", and even though I remember the favorites (Glenn, Norris, etc.), I couldn't really remember WHY they were considered so cool.

Basically this is a cross-game character appreciation thread, but I'd like some focus on Cross/RD characters. Try not to just say "Norris is my favorite character because he's Norris, 'nuff said," or "Harle is pretty and mysterious because of this mystery boner she gave me." I know there's the Character Rating polls, but those are old and had a time limit, and the Further Character Discussion thread was more about rating the characters. This is about favorites and why.

So talk about histories, developments, maybe even link to your favorite portrayal of said characters in fanworks. You might even find out your favorite was your favorite for completely wrong reasons.
