Either one works for me. Age isn't something that really determines self worth so much as one's actions.

21. But then it depends on the kind of story they're in. If it's a casual school-themed story, then 17 is better. If the main character will be traveling with a group of others on an epic quest to save the world from the clutches of an evil mastermind, then 21 is better. Heck, older, even.

Over 9000. I like me some Elf protagonists. Especially if they're female with huge swords. Ohhhhhh yeah.

@palladinthug: I agree. :)


@Clydous: My character is 21, but I realized that a lot of characters are much younger in some of these games. For instance, you have a 13 year old in Kingdom Hearts, and surprisingly characters like Zidane and Garnet are only 16 (and technically Garnet barely 16 as it is her birthday in the opening of the game). I figured that was too young in reality, but at the same time I wondered if their ages were reflective of the target audience.


@Tai: lol :p

My problem with young protagonists has always been "they are saying things people that age wouldn't say. They are reacting in ways people that age wouldn't react". There are some things you can't fake with age, even if they have the "wise beyond their years" mentality.

Either one works. Age doesn't matter as long as you have a good character.

@Milennin: True. :)


@Tai_MT: I know! I've thought that for a while now. They really make their characters unrealistically mature, wise, and understanding.

Making a blue-magic-heavy game is very fun but there's a lot of extra hassle as well. Balancing skills for both enemy and player usage isn't easy.
BTW everyone on staff who made the forum jump, thank-you! This time I am not panicked and lost all rounds.
I'm not searching for bugs, just pleasant surprises, for now on ^^
Been a while since I've been here, whoops. My computer's been acting really stupid so I wasn't able to work on my projects, but the good news is I've got a new one, meaning I can get back to work. And I've got a nice idea in mind, I'll just need to find some good scripts for the Aesthetic.
Have a random update.
