Reread this story on a whim and its still as great as ever. Shame that its pretty much dead at this point though.

You have your Japanese sword terms wrong; What you referenced as a short-bladed Katana was in reality a Kodachi, not a Nodachi. The Kodachi is a shortened sword that has a length between a traditional Katana and a dagger. The Nodachi is longer than a Katana, and is less than about [correct if I'm wrong on it] seven feet long. The Odachi is the longest variety, measuring upwards of seven feet, and is easily one's height and more, like a Tachi and Zweihander. Please fix this error, because it is a bit odd to see it. Thank you for reading this review.

Everything is great so far. All of the characters are wonderfully fleshed out and the actions scenes are incredibly detailed and exciting. Your originals are well integrated into the plot and add additional flavor. I also enjoyed the fact that the Judgemaster is back as well. However, your pacing can vary quite a bit with either long lulls in the plot or nonstop action. A little bit more regularity couldn't do any harm. I do have some questions though. How will you integrate Adelle's Heritor powers into the story? Will Luso learn any original techniques? How will you put Khamja back in as major antagonists?

When I found this I had just started playing my copy of the game again I felt unsatisfied with how the game ended and wanted some sort of continuation of the story when I found this I wasn't very hopeful and had never read a fan fiction before that day when I started reading I was surprised with how much I wanted to keep reading I have now finished all 67 chapters and am hoping this will be continued but am doubtful since its been two years since it was last updated that has left me slightly disappointed but all in all just getting to read those 67 chapters was enough for me. Thank you for posting this cuttingmoon57.

Not a review, but "nivus" is Latin for "snow". Fitting, since he's the Ice Templar.

I'm glad I was able to read this, although I'm saddened that you never finished it. You were doing amazing with it too. I recently beat the game again, and I kept thinking of all the events taking place just like this story.
If you ever do come back to it, keep at it. People love this, no matter what happens.

I found your story literally by accident. I wasn't even on . I looked up something for the game and found a link for your story, and I'm happy I clicked it. :D
Talk about good luck, your story is amazing. Keep going.

Please continue this! I believe it's one of the best and deepest stories on this site. Plus, you don't really see any good FFTA2 fictions other than this one. Please!

You have a really great story going here. The character development and drama are very thoughtful and enjoyable to read. The fight scenes are epic. It feels like you know just how much detail to put into the fight scenes so that we can picture them and still not get bored out of our mind with the length of the descriptions.
My favorite part, though, would probably be your creativity in restructuring Jylland and the game's plot.
I do have a question, though. Why did you decide to write the story using an "Arcs" format?
Most books I've read are more direct in their plot lines, only dealing with one or a limited number of problems. If there is a lot of ground to cover between the start of the books and the desired end of the characters' journey then the story is often divided up into a series. I'm not saying your story is disjointed or running on too long, or anything like that. I'm just wondering what made you choose to write using arcs. If you have already answered this question before I apologize. If that is the case please just direct me to where I can find your answer.
Nice story overall, though. It's a great read and I hope you continue.

Good job, as usual, but for the "Tales of Gully" sections, I think you should let other people write them if they want to. Limits could include keeping characters in character, being no more than three pages in length, or whatever else you feel is appropriate.
