Hunter SKY (WIP) - Seeking Feedback

Hey guys. Chapter 13 is almost finished but there’s a question I’d like to ask.

Originally I intended for the game to focus strictly on martial arts. But the inclusion of powers really took things down different path(a good path btw).

What I want to know is what makes the story interesting for you. Is it the story, the world, the characters, the powers, or the similarities to other anime?

Also, would you still like the book if the powers were removed? Having powers seems to numb certain feelings toward events that should deliver an impact without going over the top. I’m considering removing them but would change my mind if the majority of you prefer having powers.

Hey mate, the thing that attracts me to this game is the story and martial arts.

I for one would prefer if you removed powers, since it will make the game more realistic and fun. Of course I would still like to use Aura as a knight and learn different types of MA.

To conclude, I like this book for the story and fights. Wouldn’t mind if the powers are removed, even though they are awesome.

Hey there, thanks for sharing your thoughts. I totally am leaning towards removing the powers but I want to hear what the others think before I make any moves on that.

With the powers out of the mix I could expand more on the martial arts and combative aspects.

I think special power is fine, you know the Mc is a kid with no extensive training so handicap seems appropriate, from what I’ve read so far one doesn’t need to have chikara to be powerful, so I guess it’s somewhat nullify MC power with enough experience so MC doesn’t feel all powerful.

Personally I love the powers and how the story and characters interact with the fact that it exist. If anything there could be way more build up to the MC getting them. Like maybe we get them way later in the story like during an impossible fight near the end of the book and it would also make sense why Jirell is outclassing everyone. If you need some tips on how to implement both powers and martial arts you can look to Path of Martial Arts and Aura Clash for good examples.

I prefer what you already been doing. You can cut it if you wish to.

Styles of weapon types matter to body types.

Long reach weapons, naginata and etc were great for small type people.

Short and medium reach great for bigger body types.

Small person can win against big one. Bigger doesnt mean less agile either.

Samurai of Hyugai, top favorite, uses the natural and magic blend well.

Me personally,the powers is the thing that keeps me,the game to me presented itself as a striving path to strength and becoming the strongest knight which as I said in my previous reply,the stats weren’t delivering during battle, not saying I want an op mc just on where I can tell that my actions or inexperience caused my loss in a battle or something as small as an injury.
Where I can fight someone (not someone badass like the knights but someone like Jirell or some other chikara our age) and feel like we are controlling the tempo of the fight due to knowing that I could always rely on my well developed stats but since that can’t happen,the powers are the only thing that feel the void for me,they also feel like they have more reliability on succeeding than other combat options.
Wouldn’t lie,I also like how the powers relatively special and give the mc and Jirell something to bond over since they both lost their dads.
Other parts of the story are good but me personally,the only way I could change my perspective is if training in the academy got way more intense and stats became more controllable story and battle wise.
So my opinion is powers should stay.

Joking aside I have no problem if you remove the powers as long as I can beat every fight with my fists alone maybe after years of hard training and practicing all kinds of martial arts

Edit: Forgot to mention that I would prefer if they stay

:laughing::joy::rofl::sob:. I didn’t actually plan to remote powers so you guys don’t have to worry. What I really wanted to do though was add more martial arts to the game.

I’m very pleased with everyone sharing why they like the book and such.

popped in to ask if there are same gender romances here? if not, i’ll go ahead and romance jirell. edit: asking this because i felt like i got stabbed in the gut when lea told her mom i’m her sister LOL :joy:

on another note it seems good so far, a few errors like the “jack and jill” reference the guy makes when he sees you hiding with lea when you’re both girls but nothing that can’t be fixed. i see the vision though, and i’m excited to keep up with the updates. <3

Yeah. There is a dance scene, it only gives the men as options. I dont know about the man MC as wont go that route to know which are available there. Maybe one of the others can discuss that.

I suspect so far, its all hetero. It was originally built as a man MC with the woman MC added after. Thus lots of mistakes, me and couple others pointed out. He plans on going back to fix some, while others, in character mentions lads, as plural, be on purpose. Also, a joke here or there on few?

I already mentioned as whom the dance partners were at the fair, this is a singles play thru. Merric is ok, the pirate I want to beat up, the rival, I want to murder.
