A wand/scepter seems a bit too generic and almost 'Magicl Girl' in this sense honestly.
I was thinking about this and Chrono Trigger really didn't trope the "jobs" of its characters that much (e.g. knight, thief, monk, etc). Everyone had a healthy mix of magic and traditional fighting skills. You could break the "Magical Girl" trope with Schala the same way Ayla broke the "Monk" trope. Embrace certain qualities of the trope but turn one aspect on its head. Ayla is a bare-fisted monk without the traditional peaceful aspects, Frog is a traditional knight without the traditional good looks. Schala is the traditional magical girl without...something?

Maybe we could keep daggers and have it be ranged AND melee?  If she's far away, she'll throw them up but up close she'll cut 'em?
Will she have to retrieve the daggers after she throws them? What would the limitations be sprite-wise?

You're not sold on the daggers anymore, Justin? I recall that we did go through several discussions about the best weapon choice for Schala when this project was first being developed. Some folks were partial to a more magic-oriented weapons (like rings or even some kind of mini-blasts in lieu of any weapon). I think someone provided information about how real-life royalty were trained to use daggers for self-defense or something too. Personally, I liked the idea of there being a nod to Kid when Schala joins your party but that's just me.

Let me know if you're going to end up pursuing this patch again; I'd gladly contribute on the story/dialog front again.

I feel like I just stepped into a parallel world...I mean, Kajar Labs is back? Might as well log in for the first time in forever.

Anyways, I'm glad to see that some progress has been made on the 8th character slot. Keep up the great work, Mauron. And Justin, Schala, good to see you guys here; there's still a lot of enthusiasm behind the Schala Project. Hell, I find myself re-watching those videos every few months. The script could use a slight rewrite but I could see that mod getting people very excited.

Very cool stuff, man. Gaspar lacks shading and depth, but I really like the direction all this is going.

Nice. That was a good chapter: not too long, not too complex; just right. Keep up the good work!

So two nights ago my sister ended up hitting a parked car, tearing her bumper to shreds and leaving a scratch on that guy's car. The people came out of their house, called some friends to assess the damage, then proceeded to their insurer and everyone was cordial about it. Within the last hour, my sister-in-law's car was hit by someone who proceeded to drive off. Since it's Christmas we'll have to sit and wait on hold for a while till a representative can speak with us.

If you're gonna hit a person's car, have the decency to tell them. And on the chance that you believe people should be more pleasant on Christmas, but you still decide to drive off, you're a real prick. I wish we could just find the guy and his car and tear him a new one. WHERE'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE WHEN YOU NEED ONE? Oh, there are no such things as Christmas miracles? That sucks.

You owned that article man, you fucking owned it. TAKE THAT ARTICLE, AND YOU TOO, COMPENDIUM.

Heheh, I definitely like the names you've given these new blokes. And the sprites aren't too shabby either--great work, man.

Oh jeez, this is starting to get heavy--that diagram would definitely help me out, if I was observant enough to know if/when something is wrong...

Anyway, another great chapter. This is one of my favorite parts in-game and in your script; well done. Once again, I didn't find anything wrong--nothing seemed too out of place (except for the word necromantic, but it's a word, so who cares) or rushed. Great job. You're getting more fans. :D

Awesome. I planned on shopping for a microphone tomorrow anyways, so this works out perfectly. And I sent you a reply, by the way; if you haven't replied tomorrow I'll just send you what you requested and hold off on the other character.

This is so exciting.

Shit, I need a microphone! Once I get my hands on a decent one, I'll be sure to somehow send you auditions for all the leftover male voices. Good luck with everything.

That is fantastic. He seems very Rambo-esque, which is an impressive contrast to how I pictured the character. Great work.

Regardless of what I nitpick, this has easily been one of the greatest Chrono fanfic I have ever read. Keep up the great work.
