Literally the perfect combination of things for what I had in mind :D

Iasper 9 years, 10 months ago

Ehh I wanted better themes but I guess these will have to do haha

Castypher 9 years, 10 months ago

Oh, I can make use of these.

So the goal is to use the theme somewhere, right? The entire game doesn't have to obey all three themes at once?

JoshDreamland 9 years, 10 months ago

Wow; these themes are roughly as homogeneous as if they were chosen by a random number generator. Oh well, I'll make due. :P

RC 9 years, 10 months ago

The themes can be used in any way in the entry. It doesn't matter how or where you use them as long as you use them.

JoshDreamland 9 years, 10 months ago

And remember, Kilin, even if the rules let you fudge something, more creativity means more people's champion points.

Omniscient, Diaster, Illusion
I only know what 'illusion' means, I have never heard of the first two. With dictionary I figured out the first one, but what does diaster mean? The dictionary was able to find only the Japanese translation. The explanation was something about double star…

Anyway, this will be rather challenging. And that's what I need to get my motivation back.

It is a typo of "disaster", which means "a sudden event, such as an accident or a natural catastrophe, that causes great damage or loss of life" or "an event or fact that has unfortunate consequences."

Yaru 9 years, 10 months ago

Yaru - Underground, Grotesque, Imperfect
Jay, I got the same theme twice :D (I interpret Imperfect as a subtype of Grotesque)

I'm thinking an underground circus / theme park… this is gonna be interesting.

A typo, eh? Weird how dictionary was able to find a translation for that…
