Would it be reasonable to make characters slightly more epic due to everyone training hard prior to the Vytal Festival? I know all my characters either started training themselves or others two months before.

Also, Camellia was supposed to be at the Vytal Festival, but something happened in Atlas and she was held back so now she's disqualified. Perhaps there was supposed to be one more extra bracket,

Asterisk, I'm going to be asking you a few things.

First, how does Strelka's glass bullets do splash damage? Easy to explain, such as aiming at feet or something.

Second, how does her gun actually work? Bullets gaining velocity from propulsion dust providing the kick, I can see.
But the glass dust? Bullets do not simply gain mass midair quite simply, and the size you provided is quite absurd. It wouldn't even properly amass during the travel time to reach baseball size. The bullet would be moving too fast for that.

Would the glass fragmentation be a feasible answer?

As for how her gun works, the bullets don't actually fly that fast, probably about as fast as the rounds from Roman's cane except without a fiery explosion. Perhaps I should make them explode in the future.

Glass Fragmentation would be a possible answer if it wasn't a direct hit considering there's nothing behind Sovereign for it to shatter against. Unless the bullet shattered midair, but there's nothing to create that effect since it's isolated basically.

Second, I'm going to need one extra bit of information: Is she firing glass dust or another dust type? Just incase since the weapon description was a little confusing.

Right. React accordingly to the glass dust as you see fit.

The bullet uses kinetic dust for propulsion and glass dust is contained in them for damage.

Alright, the problem I'm seeing is that when the glass dust is activated, it would stay at the same size. It could only expand by increasing the bullet's volume, which is by heating the glass to a certain point. Even then, that's volume, not mass. It wouldn't do more damage, instead it'll be weaker.

Of course, I'm intending for Sovereign to block the bullets, but I'm nipping this future problem in the bud, as well as offer a few advice. Other dust would function a lot better considering the elements they provide. Glass... is just glass, and would probably only serve to be a poorman's shotgun blast for any other weapon.

I honestly don't care as to whether or not this advice is heeded in the tournament, so the match is still going to go on, unless you say otherwise.

Now that I'm done bringing this to your notice, I'm off to post in other things before checking for your answer.

Even though I heeded the advice, would I be able to change it? I'd feel like I were cheating if I didn't go by the character sheet even though I screwed up on it.

I wouldn't feel that way and I know a few people who feel the same way, but if it makes you uncomfortable, it can be changed later then.

Really, it's all up to you.

Other than that, I'm off to post in our fight thread! GLHF!

I do try not to be petty when i get into fight threads, giving leeway due to the ambiguous that writing this out can give. But i will need you to clarify how he is actually avoiding being dragged by Tenne's chains by simply jumping back. The best this would do is make the chain go taut even sooner, causing him to be pulled all the sooner by the chain she was planning on spinning, especially since she has already been stated to have braced her stance in the previous post. Thanks ahead of time for the clarification.

How to deal with Ismael when he loses control in 3 easy steps.

1. Talk to him normally and not as if he was a child.

A. He likes pie, so feed him pie.

2. Try to make sure he's always fed, he gets angry when he's hungry.

C. Guide him along everywhere or he will get lost.

. Don't let him do anything on his own or he will become scared then angry.

B.Give him a piggy back ride, he loves piggy back rides.

2.11. He is in an almost primal state treat him as such.

D. He will try to touch anything shiny so try to make sure he doesn't hurt himself.

@. Ismael doesn't usually remember what happens so you can do whatever you want with him.

E. Slapping him doesn't help anything, but he will accept that as a duel to slap fight.

?. He likes story's so read him one and he won't be as crazy during it.

F. Don't ever break or remove his mask or he goes berserk.

/\. Ismael will say stupid shit that won't make sense. Try to act as if it does.

I. He likes to break things so don't let him get started or he won't stop.

3. Always give him love and attention or he will become angry.

I didn't realize he could do that with his armor, none of the stuff in his profile say his armor is made to channel dust.

Not in his armor his boots. His boots can either fortify his kicks dealing more knock back or propel him.

Aight, that makes a bit more sense then. Though it's unlikely that he's unhooking his arm with the chain taut at the moment, I don't know if you ever tried to pull hooked straps off, but without some slack, unless he breaks his arm to get it unwrapped or willingly comes back to Tenne, he's not taking it off at the moment.

That is all, I'll try and get a post up soon
