ROUND FIVE COMMENTS1. AJ and Drac vs HopeROUND FIVE COMMENTS by *RobinRone
COMMENTS FOR AJ & DRAC
BagnaTheSupervillain: Your choice to focus on getting the character stuff done is greatly appreciated, and the stuff with AJ and Hope definitely stood out during the entry. Thoth's role as god of exposition makes sense, but it didn't feel like the most exciting way to deliver new information about characters, and the bits with Thoth generally felt a bit more stiff than the other parts of the entry, but the focus on the characters' reactions to what Thoth said did a lot to make those scenes more interesting.
Lithicbee: The meeting between Hope and AJ and Drac felt a little contrived but the parts that came after worked, so it can easily be overlooked. Using not-really-human Hope to summon a little humanity from human-but-not-really AJ was a nice twist. It culminated well in part 5, which was excellent. AJ growing as a person; the gods ignoring the humans as insignificant; Hope’s sacri
ROUND FOUR COMMENTS1. Sisca vs Doctor Harriet Huxley, Edmund DaugerROUND FOUR COMMENTS by *RobinRone
COMMENTS FOR SISCA
BagnaTheSupervillan: This entry did a good job of tying in to the events going on elsewhere in Hades and providing interesting perspectives on them, which made the plot quite fun to read. However, most of the character interactions either felt overly drawn out (Nick and Sisca at the beginning) or overly short and superficial (Ed reuniting with Sisca). At this point I don’t really need to hear Nick and Sisca talk about whether he should be allowed to have his lighter, but I would like to see Ed and Sisca’s reunion given more attention. Some sort of balance would have gone a long way towards making the conversations more lively and would have showcased the characters more effectively. On a note of convenience, I didn't notice any links between the pages, which would have made the whole thing easier to read.
Lithicbee: My critique for this entry is similar to past ones.
ROUND THREE COMMENTS - Set 25. Sisca vs Empress Amegallus and Guile GuinROUND THREE COMMENTS - Set 2 by *RobinRone
COMMENTS FOR SISCA
BagnaTheSupervillan: This entry seemed to have a bit of a split identity. On one side, there were big tournament-changing events that the OCs in the entry were little more than spectators for. On the other side, there was a story about the Empress capturing Sisca and Nick and Emi getting violent that didn't really affect anyone outside of the five OCs involved. I support having both of those elements in a good entry, but I generally like seeing the OCs bounce off each other a lot more, so wading through 7 parts before I got to Sisca's interactions with Amegallus felt like a long wait to get to the fireworks factory. I think that finding some way to intersperse those two types of storylines would have both made the big plot stuff more entertaining and would have made the character interaction feel more relevant to the overall plot. For example, it seems like Sisca and Nick could have met Meg, Guil
ROUND THREE COMMENTS1. Renata vs ResonanceROUND THREE COMMENTS by *RobinRone
COMMENTS FOR RENATA
BagnaTheSupervillan: This entry handled the interactions between Resonance and Renata very well, and the unstable partnership based on glamours, manipulation, and deceit they form by the end provides an interesting situation to explore in future rounds. My biggest complaint about the entry would probably be that it didn't have much focus on any particular story or theme, though the manipulation and deceit going on among all the characters worked pretty well to make the different parts feel fairly unified. This entry was another solid chapter in what's shaping up to be a pretty good story.
Lithicbee: This was an interesting entry that contained some subtle and clever plotting. When Thoth brought Renata to Resonance and Koba, I thought, “There better be a payoff for this, because it makes no sense for him to do that.” By the end, I accepted that by putting her there, he took both her and Resonance off the pla
