Yes, as we all know, all young men are born full of harmonies.

(This whole thing is so absurd I had to wipe tears out of my eyes multiple times just from laughing at it.)

Edit: I actually made this a lyric in the Hinotorian national anthem. :p

All men are born full of harmonies
All women born full of melodies

Whew, the skin for the guidebook is finally done*. And the main site skin is very close to being at least presentably done too. It’s been 21 days since I started.

After that I’ve gotta test it in different browsers (already looks the same in mobile Chrome, which is a good sign), and remake the page for the actual story. But… since that will require a javascript recode too, I think I’ll put that off until I actually want to work on the story, and just finish the rest of the recode first.

For a while I’d played around with the idea of Ssivyin swapping to different genders as schemas the way other people turn into schemas for different superpowers (Kris), different weapons, or different archetypes altogether, with a similar change in abilities.

But in the back of my mind, I couldn’t help but feel it was at least a little bit tacky to be using gender as a power that way. I think the main problem and the main thing that made it tacky was that I saw them as semi-consciously choosing to use this gender’s strategy or that one, when gender is usually not a matter of choice.

Today I came back to it and realised, if I just reworked the idea by making their genderfluidity semi-realistic, that would pretty much solve the problem, and create a pretty unique game mechanic—that is, the character’s gender changes somewhat randomly though there’s a somewhat logical pattern of things that will make them more likely to assume each gender (normal, male, female, xai, zed, omega, omicron), and as before, there are certain things they have an edge at as each one but since you can’t just choose a gender like you can attributes and such you have to figure out what will make them change gender naturally. Oh, if it’s not clear, not only does their world have somewhat different gender associations from ours depending on where you are, but this character will probably have some idiosyncrasies of their own about what each one means on top of that.

For a little while now this has kind of been my unofficial theme for Barry. Now it’s official, I guess! :p

I like how this song starts out with this random guitar you kind of didn’t expect and just kinda… starts off down the road. It fits oddly well with the way the character is kind of weird and silly and always likes to say things in a ridiculous and oddly unhelpful way to mess with you knowing that when he’s the mature expert (in a rather specific field, but he’s pretty invaluable nonetheless) and too charming to hate on top of it, there’s nothing you can do to stop him.

Then it goes into this much more mature and “Unified” sounding thing, which is another side of the character, but the quirky guitar is still there and then you get this very… girly in a way ‘romantic’-ish stuff with whispering voices and stuff but that fits the character too because he looks and acts in a somewhat feminine way.

And then it’s just kind of… chill for the rest of it.

As an added bonus its sort of Italian (?) sound goes pretty well with Ariana’s theme.

An Aluma calendar. Sorry, it probably isn’t very readable unless you click it up.

I’m about to make a prettier page on Sangkara that shows the current date on it, and a script for this blog to toggle the dates to Aluma dates because I’m a nerd like that.

Thing I posted on Skype because worldspoilers but now am putting here ’cause I’m being lax-er with the worldspoilers.

So anyway, I finally got off up my butt and figured out what I’m gonna do with the options interface (you know, the thingy that pops up when you are to select choices; this is a demo where I made it appear over and over to show a visual effect of the attribute you chose getting big and fading
