BSW FAQ discussion thread

Post by Caterwaul » Fri Jun 22, 2012 7:37 am

For a little while now, I've thought we needed a newbie FAQ to answer some of the more common questions that pop up. The hows, whys, and what's of the canon as well as some of the more common US Fanverse issues that crop up now and then. It wasnt a really a pressing need as we're not the largest group of people, but I expect that to change a bit once the anime actually hits. With that in mind, I figure now's as good a time to actually start up a FAQ as any.

So let's make one. This thread is going to be for discussion of the FAQ's creation, as well as ongoing suggestions for additions once we create the actual document.

A glossary and a list of acronyms from the shinki universe would be nice (i.e. CSC, etc.).

a pictorial explanation of MMS 1st, 2nd and 3rd bodies. I think we had enough of explaining that before.

The JP Wiki for Battle Masters Mk2 has that kind of glossary thing.

I can probably translate some of it in my spare time.

A faq specially for Busou Shinki Battle Masters Mk2 can be nice. Since if the Anime hits Big, there's bound some people will be interested in playing once they know about the game.

And yes, while there is the JP wiki, not all of us can read Japanese and sometimes google translate makes it more confusing.

I have a very crappy album set up because my camera was throwing a hissyfit.
I will take better/more comprehensive pictures once I sort the damn thing out unless someone else does it before me. This one mostly just shows what the leg parts look like if you try to swap them. =/

It's also incomplete. A few of the weapons/armor tables are stuck at the first BSBM era, with lists stopping at Rank 5. Nobody's updated them at all. I would do the honors, but @wiki has a region lock.

Most of the in-game Rank 6~7 weapons I either had to gain on my own or from Friend Card data gleaning.

Maybe I'll pick up where I left off once I'm able to pull myself out of Gunpla building/detailing.

I think we might also want to address a few of the more common questions addressed in this thread, specifically the difference between Full, Light, and EX sets. Also, I'd like to see a brief English version of the backstory.

A write-up of the personality's of the Busou Shinki from both Battle Rondo and Battle Masters 1 & 2 would be nice, I personally would like to know, and Google translate doesn't help that much.
