      *Crosses fingers that Arsenal doesn't refer to the horrible North London invading football club of the same name.*

      " Dave:... Hipster"
      HAH! Please keep that as the permanent name for the mastery!

      HA, Dave is a hipster. Nice. Many of these have the potential to be hilarious.

      Sounds promising :)!

      I'll definitely be using everyone, but I think my main party will be Finian, Sue, Clarke & Alyssa. (With Lauren probably being my main sub.)

      Alyssa's in your party all the time but you have 3 other character slots that you can fill.

      Ah, meant to put permanent party 'lead'.

      Creator FinalCataclsym on October 21, 2013

      Well, I know for a fact that Chahn is now my permanent party. Which actually begs a question...

      Are you "stuck" with Alyssa the whole game like Legend of Dragoon or will be more like Star Ocean where your party is completely customizable (if not right away, but some point)?

      Gunmancy (now in my iPhones custom dictionary!) puts me in mind of Final Fantasy Unlimited (anime). Combination alchemical/magical ingredients in gunpowder for varying effects like fire, ice, and so-on. Excited.

      Also: punching. Love it!

      Creator Bruno Albino on October 21, 2013

      Yeah, I fought the same about Lauren!

      Also, "Punching" is quite humorous :) ...until Sue hits you in the face.

      Lauren's Betrayal and Deception masteries makes me think she'll be a double agent working for the antagonists. Or that she will be an enemy at first before you recruit her.

      "Salivary Warfare" disturbs and amuses me at the same time.

      Creator Zeboyd Games on October 21, 2013

      Thanks for the typo catch.

      "Clarke: Dance Assault..."

      I'm thinking my team will be Clarke, Clarke and Clarke. If we get to have four-person parties, I might consider adding Clarke.

      "Gunmany"
      I'm guessing that's a typo of Gunmancy. Unless Chahn's mastery simply involves owning a whole lot of firearms.
