Script Bits "Eggman Empire" Feedback Thread

Postby Ian Flynn » Tue Mar 25, 2008 3:20 am

H'okie-doke folks. This is how we're going to play it.

Those who've followed "Script Bits!" may have noticed that the latest batch has been a trifle (*cough*) late. Well, as of the new super-info megathread I'm going to try to get back on top of things.

This means a new format / approach to the "Script Bits!"

Running from March 25th to April 30th you will have your chance to leave feedback in this thread. This feedback will be used to create the "Script Bits!" for the "Eggman Empire" arc. (STH#174-177)

This is what I'm looking for from you:
- 5 "Ask Ian" styled questions about the arc
- 3 requests for specific pages or scenes out of the entire arc

The questions may be as general as "Why did you do X?" or as specific as "Why did X say Y in STH#???, Page ??, Panel ??"

The requests for pages or scenes will be used to determine which segments of each issue's manuscript I will display.

After the thread is closed, I will go through the questions and requests much like I do with "Ask Ian" - picking what I think will bring about the best information and highlight the most popular requests.

Be sure to offer carefully consider your questions and requests. If you change your mind, you have until the end date to edit your post.
Changes not made as edits but as replies will be ignored.

Let's see if this new format works, shall we?

1. Did anyone get killed off in the original script?
2. How long were you planning on this shocking story arc?
3. How come Mina and Ash were shown in the crowd in #176 when they were supposed to be on tour?

1. Robotnik getting into Sonic's head shortly after Eggman blew up Castle Acorn.

2. Sonic reaching his limit only to suffer defeat

3. The final pages of the main story of #174 right when Espio was spotted and when Elias pronuced Antoine and Bunnie husband and wife.

I don't know about questions, but I think my favorite part of the arc was Eggman's big showdown with Sonic in 175, especially where Sonic "reaches his limit" but still isn't able to defeat Botnik, so my request is to see some notes on that.

1.) What prompted you to have Knothole destroyed?

2.) Why is Nicole the more active heroine now and not Sally, Bunnie, and Amy?

3.) Was the cutting of Sally's hair originally a dramatic one (like her hair gets caught and had to free herself)?

4.) Why was no one killed off in this particular arc?

5.) Why were Sonic, Knuckles, Tails, and Amy left as the only rescuers?

1. Why did you move all of the characters to New Mobotropolis?

2. What gave you the idea for New Mobotropolis?

3. Why did you have Amadeus talk about his plan to reform the government every time he showed up? Wasn't it a little bit too obvious he had something up his sleeve?

4. Has Hope been written out, or will she appear again in the future?

1. The scene between Hope and Snively.

2. Scourge telling Finitevus that Dimitri has escaped.

Why did you decide to return Hope to Knothole at that moment only to make her fate ambigous.

Did Hope have amunition in her plane, how was she allowed to have weapons onher private plane.

I would aso like to request the scene where Hope confronts Snively for the script bit please.

Also the scene where Antoine and Bunnie are talking to Sally.

Lastly the scene where Mighty tears up Snively suit. Sorry I originally put this in the wrong post its in the right place now.
