    But the Feywild also mirrors the beauty and grace of civilisation in the form of the Eladrin Courts. With no people, Eladrin would possibly cease to exist.
    Likewise towns in the Shadowfell are already twisted and decayed ruins stalked by nightmares. What happens after the collapse when the nightmares the Shadowfell mirrors have actually happened and are long gone?

    Stop that. Yukari is a pure and sweet 17 year old girl, all these rumours about her being god awfully powerful are just hype.

    Anyway, Yukari is more subtle then that and doesn't win her battles through direct application of force. A beautiful intellect, the embodiment of all danmaku is supposed to represent.

    I always thought Gensokyo would make a decent Mount Olympus style home of the gods, where all the touhous were just deities among their kind, or among groups of people. Mystia would be deity (or just ruler) of the night sparrows, which I imagine to be an evolved form of harpy with more song powers.

    Characters like Reimu or Sanae would have started out as humans and taken the interest of established members of the pantheon enough that they were elevated, and now serve as guardians of the human race (since gods friendly to humans are vastly outnumbered by the unfriendly ones). Marisa would have stolen her place in the pantheon, of course, although she'll insist she's just borrowing it.

    For the world setting, then, you can take Gensokyo and expand it. Human Village becomes Human Kingdom - surrounded on all sides by either untamed magical wilderness, a kingdom ruled by vampires, and the mountainous region inhabited by the flying monsters among others.

    I figure she just takes damaged traffic signs from isolated country roads nearby or something, she may put them back after, who knows.

    It's also worth considering is there are people in her subway train spellcard or if it's danmaku designed to look like a subway train. The idea of people seeing a momentary flash of a fight between two young girls while passing through a tunnel is amusing.

    I've always liked the setting more or less as it is, a haven for creatures of faith and dreams who were growing weak in a world dominated with science and fact. Some doujins briefly mention the idea that Gensokyo may not be the only one of it's kind and others like Shangri-La and Eden still exist for youkai of other regions.

    And then beyond these places, if a group is lucky or good enough to survive, they might reach the court of the daughter of the moon, or the netherworld, or they might have to travel deep underground to save the world from nuclear fusion.

    Take out the spell card system and unlimited powers - those are only used by the gods to ensure they don't destroy all creation. Then you have a setting with pretty much unlimited potential, and could run virtually any system or type of adventure there.

    I like the idea of this character as a recurring enemy. Your first meeting is when you're hired to stop the unseasonable cold in an area. You meet her, she attacks you right away. If you win, the cold goes away and you can go ahead on your way.

    Later, the ice fairy seeks you out for revenge. "I'm stronger than I was before!" From there you have comical options (like her being exactly the same as before, or slipping on icy ground and starting to cry) or you can play it as she said: she's stronger and she has a chance of beating the group.

    Then there's Lily White, who announces every spring with a shower of danmaku. And the humans don't appreciate it as houses are destroyed, fields are ravaged, and mayhem and destruction follow her path (which changes from year to year, so they can't predict it).

    it's not uncommon for Yukari to lose fights from time to time, she's not some power house melee machine like Suika or Yuka. Yukari was never meant to be a direct power kind of character, she's a schemer by nature and rarely seems to fight seriously because of it. It's described in Perfect Memento that when Yukari fights she usually does so with a eerie smile and amused attitude, even when she loses. She's more likely to use the lose to her own ends and a fair number of the others are catching on to how frustrating Yukari is in a fight, like the result doesn't really matter to her, it's just part of a elaborate twisty scheme.

    Anyone using Yukari as a power house BBEG is doing it wrong, sure she's strong and frightening, but her strength is supposed to be in her twisted intellect and completely out of the box schemes that seem to defy logic. A very long term planner ideally if I were to use Yukari, she'd be a character who would both at the same time seem like a villain AND support.

    I'm of the camp that Yukari's losses are the fault of using the spellcard system for everything as opposed to just plain fighting. Her power stretches across so much that you can't really do anything without falling into a gap for eternity.

    Which is why I'm saying, the only confrontation you'd have with her is a debate or something that isn't really a confrontation, through which she realizes that what she's doing could be accomplished without harming <the thing you want to keep her away from>.

    Where as Ran is more of a direct straight laced intellect much like a super computer, she is able to do extremely complex mathematics in her head without problem, but she isn't used to thinking outside of normal logical parameters. So she wastes much of her time working out the width of rivers using math, that aside she's good support for her master, both strong, loyal and intelligent.
    >> Anonymous 04/02/10(Fri)14:32 No.8936899

    but that's kind of the point, even without the spell card system in place, Yukari isn't the type to directly just kill or gap someone out of known existence. She's beyond that to a level where using her opponent towards her own ends is much more useful or even just amusing. Any fight with her would be on her terms with multiple branching plans depending on how the 'fight' goes. If they are genuinely threatening to her she could easily escape or manipulate her way out of the problem, it's pretty much her nature but she's not really someone you can directly compare power against because her power isn't a direct one, much like she herself isn't the kind of person to use direct force unless it serves a ultimate purpose.

    But then we run into the same problem. Is she manipulating people as we know it, or closing the border between the idea that they should do what Yukari wants them to do and what they want to do?

    It was a proposal from Yukari I think, that Reimu implemented.


    Sort of, I wouldn't say Ran isn't wise, but it's a personality difference. Can of like natures from oWoD, Ran is pretty wise in a sense, she's more diplomatic then her master. I suppose you might say that ironically for a fox youkai, Ran is pretty honest and straight forward about things, whether that's because Yukari made her like that, or if it's just her personality I don't know, but she's just doesn't seem the scheming type.

    No she didn't. It was Yukari. Reimu derives her power from the Barriers.. Which are an integral part of Gensokyo, and therefore an invention of Yukari.

    The problem is that not everything has borders. Kaguya would probably wipe the floor with Yukari in a serious fight because of her control over eternity... whereas in a danmaku battle border manipulation is much more useful.

    I'd go so far as to say this: She avoids fighting for anything she really wants unless she knows she will win. Which is why she brought Reimu along with her to face Kaguya that time, or why you don't see her as an opponent in Tenshi's scenario in Scarlet Weather Rhapsody - she avoided fighting because Tenshi decided to get serious, and there was a chance of losing (and she didn't want to lose to Tenshi).

    Whereas on the other hand, even though she lost to [Reimu/Marisa/Sakuya] after the events of PCB, she didn't mind because she was just testing the strength of these amusing humans.

    That said, without spellcard rules most anyone who made Yukari an enemy would find themselves moving between the border of life and death before they knew it, unless they're a stage 6 boss, final EX boss, or Tewi.

    I think ZUN would have us beleive that some borders are much harder for Yukari to manipulate then others, just because Yukari's power is to manipulate borders doesn't mean she can easily do it all the time, it took some effort to get to the moon after all.

    Personally I like to think Yukari just plans that far ahead with a dangerous insight into how people are going to react and how she can lead them to move in ways she wants and then plans further on the off chance they react in a different way and how to correct it. I see her sitting on a dozen different schemes at once watching them progress and occasionally making appearances to correct things she hadn't taken into account.

    Of course, it's a fan view of everything. Yukari could just be very lazy and run the odd twisted scheme when needed.

    Though I imagine Yukari's idea of a enemy would be a bit different from others, where Remilia might destroy someone for being disrespectful towards her, Yukari sees things in a different way, the opponents she seems to really dislike are people like Tenshi who are outsiders that look down on youkai. I think something like celestial arrogance could really get on her nerves in the same way the Lunarians kind of pissed her off, but she's smart enough as you say to know not to fight such strong opponents directly. Lunarian's have bullshit technology mixed with magic, Celestials are youkai kryptonite and strong as hell to boot.

    power level fags have been fucking up characters for too long, it's one thing to say Yukari is the MOTHER FUCKING FLASH in jest, but when she's made out as some unbeatable god of Touhou it gets rather grating, especially when the whole setting follows a fairy tale logic that allows anyone to do practically anything given enough story for it.

    PCB extra was never completed in canon if you bothered to read about it.

    So that means 1(possibly 2) unbeaten bosses in all of canon. One being Yukari, the other being Suika(as it is seemingly her scenario that's the true one)

    Pretty such SWR is supposed to be almost entirely canon aside from moments like Meiling's dream sequence storyline, but basically each scenario was a different part of the day.

    The problem is that people put too much importance on danmaku battles, these aren't serious fights for the most part and even when they are they are done with danmaku duelling rules which are designed so the weak can challenge the strong.

    I'd say yes because anything is possible in Gensokyo, it's part of the point, that said just because you can doesn't mean it's easy, the hardest ones would likely require special narrative circumstances, in a sense it's easier to think of Gensokyo as a fairy tale Discworld, getting big things done requires a story to be present and roles to be picked out.

    Particularly in the versus games, there are quite a few fights where it's apparent that one side or the other simply wasn't trying that hard, so you can't say that they were simply defeated.

    Yukari can manipulate the borders between almost anything, but that doesn't mean that she will, or even that she'll want to. I believe it was stated somewhere that if she wants to heat a glass of water, she has to concentrate on manipulating the borders between every single molecule in the water, and concentrating on that many things at once gives her a headache so she has to go and lie down afterwards.

    Yukari had a part in making the border, she didn't make it herself. It was a combined effort for alot of people, I think there was even a dragon involved somewhere but honest the specifics are beyond me.

    The point is, a bunch of youkai were involved, Reimu's family were involved and so on. It was a combined effort.

    Reimu's shrine and her bloodline are a important part of the border today, but I don't think they are the source of her power, at least not entirely. I'd say it's a combination of her bloodline and her shrine maiden training. She may not be very good as a shrine maiden when it comes to dealing with people and gathering faith, but when it comes to kicking ass she's got a talent for it and she's been doing it long since before the spell card system.

    Certainly not the most powerful character around, but she does have countless experience some unfair advantages.

    If nothing else, Marisa got her master spark from Yuka, not Mima, so she learned magic from at least two sources. And it's... somewhat doubtful Yuka actually TAUGHT Marisa how to spark, so why are you denying that Marisa might have stolen spells along with books from Patchouli?

    Isn't there something with the Youkai not being able to exist outside anymore due to lack of faith from humans? IE why there was a human village sealed in there to begin with, if the you lose all of them no 'faith' exists. Humans probably bought into it as it was possibly established during feudal age shit and no one wants to be forced to served or have their village burned to the ground during a shitty campaign by a warlord.

    There's a whole village full of humans. Reimu and Marisa are both eighteen, probably about 25 by now (doesn't the series progress in real-time?).
    Also, most of the HARD LEZ shit is like the Alice/Marisa stuff; one or both of the characters is horribly warped, for example Alice being a shy UGUU~ character who just wants Marisa to X her Y, when actually she's pretty full of herself when you meet her in the games.
    Alice isn't a delicate, shy little flower, she just has yokai-aspergers or some shit so she lives in a forest and ignores people for 90% of the time.

    The more I think about this, the more interesting it seems. The idea that the hourai elixer granted immortal life, but not health thus requireing measures of a fairly extreme sort for immortals to avoid living in misery forever has good potential in my opinion. It nerfs the whole "no matter what happens I'm immortal so I don't care" aspect that can occur with immortal caracters, since they need to maintain a way of avoiding being sick for ever and ever. Anyone else like this idea?

    Plus, Alice's dolls have no free will. Literally everything they do, Alice is forcing them to do, including everything from basic movement to the appearance of having emotions. This makes a lot of the fanart for Alice at least three times as hilarious.

    That sounds horrible. There's no way you could maintain health for a thousand years, especially when you spend a few centuries attacking everyone you meet, and then a few more centuries sitting and staring at the ceiling because you just don't care anymore. Both of which Mokou did, as I recall. Once you did have some ailment which persisted through your reincarnation, you'd never get rid of it, and the immortal effectively becomes a long-lived mortal.

    Kanako, a goddess of the wind and rain, seeks to gain all of Gensokyo's faith in order to prevent the declining level of faith in Gensokyo to reach the point where its gods lose their power. Were such a thing to happen, she believes, Gensokyo would fall into a state of chaos.

    Yes there is: magic and/or lunarian super science. Kaguya's got Eirin's shady drugs to keep her going and, from what I've heard, (might be fanon, I really don't know) Mokou has some sort of pact with a phoenix. Since she's immortal without the phoenix maybe it keeps her healthy, purging all the illness every time her body is reformed.

    >Soon, the ultimate doll should be complete. With this, the forest will be mine.
