Hey everyone!

http://www.suikonline.com/index.php

SuikOnline used to be a huge Suikoden site, and then due to circumstances died. But, the owner has brought it back and it's always looking for new members to add to the community. So please, check it out! Hope to see some new faces there soon!

Hey guys, I'm back after losing the password to this LJ. By now I'm a fairly well known member of the Suiko fandom (at least in certain circles) You may know me better as scarlet assassin now. Anyway, since my last update I've decided that Lucretia is my favorite strategist as she is vastly superior to the others in many ways. the only one who can compete is Shu and even he falls short.

not related to Suikoden again, but oh well....

Seeing as how this is about Strategists, how many people here play RTS, more specifically, StarCraft?

If there is some people here, besides me, maybe we should all play a game soon.

I've been on another Suikoden kick lately... But I think this time it might stay.

Anyway, I was angsting about the death of the Suikoden fandom (most communities out there for it have been dead for a while... one I noticed hasn't been active since 2002! ;_;) when I spotted this community...

And well... I know we ALL have a huge thing for the Silverberg family line... At least I do. So I decided to stop by. ^^;;

I guess... here's my response to the survey posted?


Why did you join this community?

I think I just rambled all that. The first Silverberg I fell in love with was Odessa... 3 years back when my friend told me about Suikoden and lent me his copy of the first game. I IMMEDIATELY fell in love with the game and, after Ted, Odessa became my favourite character.

I was in tears when I found out that her life and character was so short lived...

Since then, I've found every member of the Silverberg family line to be such unique, interesting characters. And the role of strategist is a very important, yet very often overlooked (compared to the fighters and the heros) role.

Why are you a strategist fan?

It's something I for one, would never be able to accomplish. I think I fully fell in love with the strategists when I met with Caesar in Suikoden III. He seemed so easy-going, relaxed...

Yet he KNEW what he was doing. He could grin and smile and shrug things off and tease Apple to his hearts content. But he was truly a genius. I loved him. I began CHEERING when he returned, and helped out. I ended up depending on him SO much.

Which of the strategists do you like/respect/care for?

I definitely have the most respect for Odessa and Mathiu... And the first Suikoden game will always have the most bittersweet and vivid memories for me, as it was my first. I just loved Odessa and Mathiu's relationship... and how in the end, they ended up fighting together after all, for the better good, for Odessa was always there with them in spirit. And a Silverberg seems to have a very strong, intense spirit.

But I LOVE Caesar as well. And he's the one that reminded me of the Silverberg's and he was truly such a unique spirit. I loved his relationship with Apple (and I cheered, remembering Apple from the first game.) Caesar always seemed like... a ray of light. ^^;;;

Which are you most like?

I have no defining qualities that could ever, in this lifetime, mark me as anything resembling a strategist. But I think that's why I enjoy them so much. The battles and the wars would simply be chaos without their order. More than the hero, it's the strategist that brings all of these... 108 characters together, and makes them amount to something. It's the strategist that brings order and meaning to the characters. The hero just follows what the strategist says as well...


Now that I'm done my blabbering...

I hope we all get along and have some fun. ^^

I just bought myself Suikoden Rhapsodia (or Tactics, out in North America) and I almost can't WAIT to play it. Except that I told myself I have to get all 108 characters in Suikoden IV first. ^^;;

And I'm eagerly anticipating for Suikoden V, which is said to come out to North America in March?? Or is that just a rumor?

Why, hello there. I randomly decided to put an Elenor Silverberg search in Interests at 2:23 in the morning and I found this. Yay :D

-Why did you join this community?
I really like Suikoden (of course!) and this looked like a neat community. And it helps that I love the strategists.

-Why are you a strategist fan?
I always loved hearing their back stories and such. And without a strategist, I would have had no organized big battles in the game.

-Which of the strategists do you like/respect/care for?
I never really had a preference until the first tiny screen shots of Suikoden 4 were released. You see for the longest time, I thought Elenor was a handsome drinking man. I only saw a tiny picture and I do have bad eye sight. Ever since then, I've had an odd infatuation with her. That, and she makes me think of the crazy old cat lady I will one day become.

-Which are you most like?
Hmm, I guess I'd have to say Caesar. I'm quite layed back and lazy, but when I'm needed, I jump to the task.

Why did you join this community?
Because I like Suikoden and I am fond of the strategists?

Why are you a strategist fan?
The strategist characters are the ones that set Suikoden apart from the rest of the rpg world. When you think war heroes and epics, the strategists are almost always written over or non-existent. Suikoden's the only rpg that sings the praises of a very important job.

Which of the strategists do you like/respect/care for?
Mm...Shu is my favorite by far. He takes the importance of strategy so thoroughly that his entire demeanor is a strategy. And he walks around with one hand in his pocket. I am also quite partial to Caesar Silverburg. Laziness is the granddaddy of igenuity, and Caesar knows it! Eleanor Silverburg is also a favorite. IV is my least favorite, but I'd play it again just to watch Eleanor. XD

Which are you most like?
...Apple, probably. I'm pretty open with my intent and emotions, and I'm not afraid to do anything to help others.

I just found this community and it made me so happy to see something like this. I couldn't help but join ^^

Why did you join this community?
My friend turned me onto the series last year and I fell in love. I think the strategists always have some of the most interesting personalities and I find their stories interesting.

Why are you a strategist fan?
No war is complete without one. In order to win, you need someone to tell you where to go and how to attack.

Which of the strategists do you like/respect/care for?
Shu, Caesar, and Albert.

Which are you most like?
Caesar. I tend to be lazy, but I get the work done when it needs to be. ^_^

hello, just joining the cool crowd now....


Why did you join this community?
Because I think Suikoden is one of the best games out there and effectivly combines war stategy and RPG elements together. Plus the story lines are just great

Why are you a strategist fan?
If not for the strategist, then a battle can never really be won (well not in this day and age it seems), you just lose before you even begin. Plus, some of the coolest figures in history have been strategists, like Sun Tzu.

Which of the strategists do you like/respect/care for?
Shu because he is just cool and was willing to sacrifice himself to stop the war.

Which are you most like?
Shu because he did his strategies his own way and "threw out the book".

Why did you join this community?
I'm a total Suikoden nut. I love the whole schmear, but there's just something about the thankless job of being a stratigist that demands I join a fansite. `^^'

Why are you a strategist fan?
As I said before, their jobs are grueling and thankless. It's their duty to make sure that their side wins and as few people die as possible. But they're not the one's out fighting—they can't really contol what going to happen in a battle. If something goes wrong, though, everyone blames them.

Which of the strategists do you like/respect/care for?
I will always have a very soft spot in my heart for Mathiu, but I think Salome is my favorite. I also like Apple alot! (The Silverberg boys are cute but WAAAAY too bratty)

Which are you most like?
I'd like to think Salome, but I have a little bit more experience I need to gain before I get that rock-steady. :) I doubt myself.

I finally remembered to look up Suikoden on livejournal and came across this community. Consider my your latest member, lol. The strategists are cool.

Personally, though, my all time favourite is Klaus.

Why did you join this community?
Because it's here, looks lively and well thought out and is a strategist community.

Why are you a strategist fan?
Most of them are interesting characters who are, well, interesting. I always like roleplaying games like Vandal Hearts where you have to plan so they gelled with me.

Which of the strategists do you like/respect/care for?
Several. Klaus mostly, then Shu, Elanor and Mathiu. Mathiu was one of my fave characters in the first Suikoden and I liked his backstory. Elanor was one of the more entertaining characters in 4. Shu I like because he's got somewhat of an ego and takes no nonsense, like when he told Victor if he did not like it he could leave. Klaus, though, is my favourite because he's quiet, calm and has that delicate look about him, plus for his age he's quite accomplished. Plus his father is... interesting. I wonder if he'll end up bald.

Which are you most like?
Tact wise, I'm like Shu. Though when in front of strangers I can be quite quiet and polite, like Klaus.

Oh, before I forget, I did this fanart of Klaus: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v325/Xiphias/Suikoden/Kla.jpg

Shameless advert. [21 Jun 2005|11:23pm]

mithrigil
.

This is a new story of mine that will eventually involve some Strategists, but deals more with Sasarai and Futch:

http://www.livejournal.com/users/mithrigil/132166.html

Also, can anyone recommend a place to archive and get criticism on Suikoden (and also Vagrant Story) fanfiction? The Pit of Voles doesn't sit so well with me and my stuff isn't typically yaoi or erotic...so where else is there to go?

Diminishing role of the Strategist? [02 Jun 2005|10:00am]

mithrigil
.

Slight spoilers for Suiko IV follow...

Having acquired all hundred and eight...Collapse )

What does the reduced importance of the Strategists in IV forbode of V / Tactics / whatever is to come? Is it directly opposed to the complexity of the battle system or does the plot demand they take a backseat to the Hero? Or is this an extension of the fans' wishes to have the Hero be a greater factor than his muscle and relevant Rune?

New Strategist Fic! [28 May 2005|10:00pm]

I hope it is appropriate to post fiction directly to here. If not, I will replace this with a link to my own journal.

Disclaimer: Contains male nudity.

Hopefully, this will make you laugh and make you think. There's some stuff in here that I am very proud of.

I hope that was enjoyable! Comments and criticism craved.

Another newbie here, nice to meet everyone! :)

Why did you join this community?
Boring story, but simply because I happen to like the strategists of Suikoden and am interested in reading what other people think about them.

Why are you a strategist fan?
I always loved how although they basically were the brains of the armies and aside from having important positions in the army, they were always interesting characters and most of them had great insights into things. They weren't exactly the people who charged and struck the first blow in a battle but I like how the strategists (almost) always saved the day in some way.

Which of the strategists do you like/respect/care for?
Most of them, I think. I have a special fondness for Apple, Shu, Albert, Caesar and Elenor. Characterwise I love Apple and Shu most, especially the relationship they had (whether you see it as platonic or more). Although there wasn't that much interaction with Caesar and Albert, the idea of two brothers on different sides and taking different paths always interested me. Personalitywise I liked Elenor a lot. A lot of people don't really like her because she had nothing to do, but I like her from the moment she had Agnes drug everyone and then went around and poked them with her wine bottle. :P

Which are you most like?
If I was a bit smarter I'd probably be a lot like Shu I guess, although I'm not sure I'm coolheaded enough to resemble any of the strategists. But I'm sure I'm going to turn someone like Elenor when I grow old. :D

Some questions to think about... [25 May 2005|11:52am]

daathic
[ mood | lazy ]

The community seems to be going the way of the dinosaurs, so I thought I'd pose some questions to wake people up.

-- Without any details on Suikoden V, do you think the new main strategist will be a Silverberg or someone unrelated through blood (like Shu)? Any people you're hoping will return to Suikoden (non-strategists included)?

-- Considering Yuber has been summoned by members of the Silverberg family in II and III, do you think he will show up in the service of the Silverbergs again?

And an inane question...

-- If you were stranded on a deserted island with two of the strategists, who would you want to be stranded there with and why?
