Hey everyone! Figure I'd post an update on a few things regarding Seimei no Shan AO.
First off, I'm going to be aiming to post up to 3 character line arts alongside my journal posts every Sunday. As I'm writing this series, I'm beginning to realize more and more how many characters lack any sort of visual showcase, so as such, I'm gonna be doing these for characters original to this story as well as characters based on guest characters from friends I know online and offline. However, if any OC characters I have in this series ends up already having a character line art/description from their respected creators, I will be linking to the proper source in the chapter description. Way I see it is I want to give proper credit where credit is due and if I can help them get renewed interest in their creations, I rather you all go straight to the original source.
Second thing is in regards to the Rep Level, which is introduced in Chapter 4. If you haven't read it yet and are about to soon, go ahead and read it first before continuing. But if you're pretty far behind, what Rep Levels are is basically the "power level" measurement of this world. Many anime series tend to use this since Dragon Ball Z set the standard for it, and I felt it was necessary to add something similar. Rep Levels, in essence, are an Alter's measurement of credibility.
But here's the kicker; You can find out your own OC's rep level in this story's universe! See, as my DA friend Letrune kinda wondered, my story leaves the possibility open for anyone's OC to show up in the series if they so desire; Whether it be me writing it or themselves writing it as a side story sort of thing. This is one of the first steps in allowing people to do this and I'll be throwing in a more detailed explaination in a future journal entry.
Anyway, to find your OC's rep level, all you have to do is add the following:
-Your youtube subscriber count
-Your facebook friends count
-Your twitter account followers
-Your instagram followers
Each of these are measured by Y Level, F Level, T Level and I Level respectfully. Adding all of these total will give your OC their own rep level.
Alternatively, if you have none of these, you may add your DeviantArt follower count, which would be measured as a D Level.
It's a fun and easy way to determine how your OC would rank up against characters in the story as they get introduced. If you want to post your OC's Rep Level, feel free to do so in the comments below!
Chapter 5 will be coming soon and I can't wait to show it to you all, as this specific storyline is the one that's been lingering in my head the longest. Look forward to it! And as always, thank you for reading!
