Well thank you for the compliments. LD and I are working very hard on that particular aspect of Mercenaries so any criticisms regarding the story or the script are appreciated.

And Zalera does not have fangs! =O

Eh heh... icks-nay on the timeline.... ay? In any case that was one of the reasons that Square came down on Crimson Echoes and May I Say for any record Real or Imagined, that I am not attempting to Fit this into Any Timeline or to make it Canon in the least bit. It is a "what if" plain and simple. Everything else is just pure conjecture on the parts of myself and others, it is just building off of the mythos that Matsuno left behind.

Ix-nayed.

What I meant was that Mercs doesn't totally screw up all of the Ivalice timeline (since it's only a retelling of FFT, after all). XD

Sorry about the confusion.

I consider Mercenaries to be a different interpretation of the same story. After all, vanilla is Alazlam's interpretation of Olan's writings, right?

That's pretty much it Vanya, yes. It's an anonymous journal found hundreds of years after the fact.

The only truth in history is that it is false.

So now, the characters to the riddle will be Biggs and Wedge.
Should we alter their names?
What should they look now?

Well if you want to have an uber referance, there names/classes could be called Darklighter and Antilles.

Points to whoever spots the original referance.

Extremely easy to spot if you utilize the google.  
It's still Biggs and Wedge, just their last names.

I expect he's had something in mind for them for quite some time now, so suggestions on that front are probably pointless.

Myan the Dark Knight Concept 2

Hmm, definitely an interesting take on Myan, a younger Myan in a way, which we will definitely have use for down the line. Especially since she doesn't have the Hades Helm and Blood Sword, very nice touches all around.

...which reminds me that I've completely neglected Character of the Week lately.

Thanks a lot, Winshmo. =P

Well the reasoning is because we didn't have the character pictures of Biggs and Wedge which Winshmo is thankfully picking up the slack for, so should be before long, also I still have to say the Myan concept 2 is a Very nice surprise!
