Hence my ellipses.  The unspoken "etc" because it would take a lot of time and space to list everyone and I would definitely not remember everyone.  But yes, Aika can come to the party.

Oh, and we need a massive battle royale of lady pirates:  Velvet, Faris, Ruby Heart, Anne Bonny, Mary Read...

This amuses me greatly:

I rather like the caption: "Now we fight like men! And ladies! And ladies who dress like men!"(and men who dress like ladies!)

I remember someone once saying "Emeralda grew up in Fei's pants" because of how the sprites looked.  

And as for the "Ber" motif, the desert town needs to have Berber people in it.  And if we're staying in Africa, Velvet can battle Somalian pirates. 

Yo, if there's a pirate theme I would hope there's some ship-to-ship battles or at least a pirate ship mini-game like that one part of Tales of Destiny in the boat.

It's just like when they interview Bollywood actors about their latest movie: They all say "it's different" or "it's the same, but different" when it's all just the same old rehashed formula of hammy overacting, boy and girl running around a tree, and songs that inexplicably cut to exotic locales.  

You know the PR people involved with a project will be selling it.  

I am semi-interested since it's a Tales game with a dedicated female protagonist (anyone who knows me knows I always choose or create a female protagonist in an RPG), though I get the feeling she'll just fall into the tsundere or tsundere sex kitten trap since Tales doesn't deviate too far from tropes.  That being said, I'm totally cool with tropey stuff done well.  After all, there are only a limited number of possible literary plots, right?   http://www.ipl.org/div/farq/plotFARQ.html

I remember creating a female protagonist in Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology, but the dialogue and all stayed the same as if I was a boy.  Like there was this one sidebar where Stahn wants to train with you instead of Rutee because he feels bad about hitting a girl.  And I'm like "You fool, I AM a girl!!!  Fucking cop out!"  That's why when I played Fate/Extra as a girl and my female familiar said something flirty as if I was a guy, I almost screamed "cop out!" until I saw the dialogue choices- one of them was "ummm, you know I'm a girl, right?"  I also liked the way that Wild Arms XF flipped the script.  Instead of a doofus guy being oblivious to the girl's crush on him, we had a self-righteous girl oblivious to the boy's crush on her.  Tradition with a twist.

You know, Gumball is one of the few current-day cartoons I not only don't mind watching with my kid relatives, but I can enjoy it on its own.  At first I wasn't into it, but it grew on me and now I think it's hilarious.  It has originality and with so much media (books, TV movies, music) being so cookie-cutter nowadays, Gumball's a refreshing dose of wacky originality.  

And if anyone remembers Jetix back in the day (it's Disney XD now), W.I.T.C.H. was a surprisingly good show.  I thought it would just be another ho-hum "non-Japanese trying to do magical girl anime, nobody can do that better than the Japanese, I am an immature weeaboo" but then I actually watched a few episodes and was like, "Damn, this show's actually pretty cool."

And I'll admit it, I had a brony phase.  Massive guilty pleasure there.  I phased out of that after season 4 (which I thought was awful) but I might still watch it once in a while... if/when no one's around.  That's another show that, at least in the early going, turned out to be surprisingly solid.  It was a couple buddies of mine who got me to watch it.  I was all like, "Dude, My Little Pony?!?!  What are you, a 6 year old girl?!?!?!"  But then they pulled the Sailor Moon defense of "Well, Sailor Moon is made for the 6-12 year-old girl demographic and you like that."  So I watched some and was like, "This isn't bad, it's not bad at all, it's rather good I'd say."

And my guilty pleasure comic books are Damsels in Excess and Zombie Tramp.

When it comes to video game/anime type lady pirates, it's ALL about Ruby Heart.  That's a great outfit.

"Cutie Panther" from Love Live! School Idol festival was my JAM today.  I was singing this song a LOT during the climbs on today's bike ride.

I wonder if the Rutee resemblance means that it might take place in the Swordians' past in Tales of Destiny.  After all, one of the Swordians was Berselius.  

I'm cool with a female protagonist, but I hope they give her a personality and not just go all "tsundere sex kitten" on us. But I get the feeling that it will be tsundere sex kitten in the end.  

Pool of Thorns' singer rocks a variety of tattered or shredded up dresses on stage, but they always looked more badass than slutty.  So while I can dig the tatter dress, the way it's done on Velvet is closer to slutty.

The fact that you're still riding it I think says plenty about your character despite the 'shorter race'.  It's definitely important that those with a very physical talents take the time to rest/heal when they need it.  Please let us know how it goes!!

It was a nice ride.  No epic stories to tell like that Parkinson's ride I did last fall, but a solid one.  It was surprisingly hilly, which I like, and I had plenty of opportunities to do both my high-cadence style climbing and my "dance" climbing.  

Dance= shifting to a higher gear, standing on the pedals, placing your hands on the sides of the handlebars (like you're holding a woman's hips), and rocking the bike side-to-side to "snake" up a hill.  

I've normally been a high-cadence climber, but my new bike encourages me to stand up and my new bike encourages me to stand up and dance, so I'm getting a lot more confident in my dancing.

And best of all, my knee doth not protest.  I believe I can handle the 66 mile Cancer ride next weekend, because the techniques I've been using to manage my symptoms are working and I think my Baker cyst will work itself out without the need to surgically drain it.   

Oh, and I was singing this song a LOT when climbing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xLzeTsLi0s

Agent D wrote this at the same time I did!

So who's gonna be the healer?  Granted, whenever I played online RPGs I was usually the healer so I'd be okay with that.  But I'd want to be a healer who can equip decent armor and a weapon that isn't a toothpick so I don't die in two straight whacks.

But if I can stick with being light DD, then yay!

D- you're right.  You know how we all used to wish we could be in those fantasy worlds we role-played in because we thought we'd be great warriors, but if you actually put our nerdy selves up against even simple goblins, they'd eviscerate us?  Well, now we're becoming fit enough that if we were to enter fantasy worlds, we could hold our own.  I'd like to be a guy who wields knives/daggers in each hand.  I'm not good at stealth at all, I like to be in your face, but because I'm not the Hulk, I'd have to rely more on technique and stamina.  

Dice- thanks.  Reading that made me feel a WHOLE lot better.  You have no idea, sister.  You and my friend Jane put things in perspective.  It's selfish of me to be bummed out about a sports injury making me cut back.  I mean, everyone I know who's diabetic has had to cut back on many things in their life, but they keep living, keep going, and make the most out of what they have.

So I'm going to make the most out of those 35 miles. I may not be attacking the hills the way I like to when I'm at 100%, but I'll be out riding a bike (which makes me happy) for a good cause (which makes me happy) and I'll probably make a new friend or two (which makes me happy). So it's triple the happy.

Thanks guys.  I'm happy I can still ride this weekend, but it still bums me out that I can't attack climbs as I'd like to (I LOVE riding up hills) or do as long distances as I'd like.  At least I'm not completely sidelined. 

Heh, who'd have thunk it. An RPG forum is where we're talking about sports injuries.

Good news and bad news.

The good news: I'm looking forward to riding in the Tour de Cure - Philadelphia this weekend to support diabetes research. Diabetes runs in my family (my dad suffers from it) so this one's personal.

The bad news: Sadly, instead of riding 63 miles, I'll only be riding 35 because I've been nursing a Baker cyst in one of my knees for a couple months now. It's working itself out, but I don't want to take too many risks with it. Fingers crossed that I'll be in good form for the ACS ride next weekend, because I want to do the full 66 for that one.

Isn't Asian tacos and burritos what Korilla was doing in Great Food Truck Race?  Still, O-Taco is a clever name.  Will the various dishes be named with anime references?  I refuse to buy an Akane taco, since she's a lousy cook.
