Is it just me, or is there a lack of reasons why many of the SF characters in 1 n 2 join the Shining Force?  Especially in SF1...Comon, you all know what I'mm talking about.  Now lets name some examples...

The first example that comes to mind is Kiwi.  He joins up with the Shining Force because...?  Cause you named him?  Cause hes shivering?  Cause he's a stupid turtle?  Who else joined the Shining Force (in games 1 or 2) basically because they had a portrait and happened to be standing in front of you?

Personally I found May in SHF2 to be a rather shocking example.

I'll never forget the phrase "mind if I join you?" Tongue

Well in fact the main reason is rather mathematical:

If and only if  the sum of charisma of all of your on force characters  + half of the sum of the charisma of the rest of your characters + your own charisma (as you count twice) - minus the charisma of the character to join multiplicated with the number of your characters > than the creativity of the designers THEN a character will join

t's not like I really care

Yes, there are some random reasons for joining or just random people join that you dont even know.  I have one that I always felt was pretty random.

In Creed's house/castle or whatever he lives in, you just randomly get people!  I can just imagine Creed in all his ugliness comes over to you "Here choose one of these people."  I mean, waht the hell where they doing just sitting in his abode for all eternity?  They just come out of nowhere, the four of them..ok enough of my ranting. I will save your eyballs from any more torture.

Penn, Pennko and Pendolf from SFIII all join to save their Penn species from the evil hands of the Bulzome Monks, who like to eat them Tongue

Not to sound mean, but did you just give the Pens a reason to join the SF?  I think the REASON makes all the randomness disappear...

Nope ... this reasons should just distract from the true randomness - ya know the best way of hiding sth is to show sth else.....

Also, (even though he SORTA has a reason) Jaha, yea he is their friend, but there is no particular reason for him joining the force.  That may not be random, but something about him that IS random...

Do you guys notice when he comes to the three, that he comes from OUT of the map.  You cant even access that part of the map, and he spawns from it!?!?

This is outrageous!!!!!!

It wasn't me that gave the Penns that reason, it's what they say in the game. I could never think of something so twisted.

It shouldn't be that baffling though, because most of the people who join you are fighters or warriors of some description, so they join you because they want to fight, essentially. Who can be bothered thinking of some twenty-odd reasons for someone to say "let me fight"? I can't even think of one.

Well they should have tried a little harder.  People don't just put their lives on the line at random so that they can fight with a group of people they don't know.

Musashi from SHF1.  I believe he was the randomest person to join the Force in that game, and trust me, there were a lot of random people in that one.

Ben...I rarely see random things being covered over by other things, though it does happen.  If you can come up with a detailed explanation for the random thing you have just performed/said, and do this at the right time, you can successfully cloak the randomness, and only recieve some suspicious looks from those around you.

On the other hand, if you decide an explanation is too much work, you can resort to doing something incredibly random in order to outrandomize the last random thing you did or said.  Though this may cause you to become socially neglected by the people who saw or heard your randomness.

Random, random, random.  Randomness has got to be the best element of humor in the world.  Every show that is meant to be funny, has its best moments when it has done somehting random.  I am also a very random individual as is Noma here...for example, he yells at my garden decorations and throws them across the front lawn...and then me and my other friend throw the daily paper at him.  So you can see that randomness is an essential part of our lives, and probably yours.

Thank you,
RJ

Yes, randomness can be a real hoot.  Another example being the fact that I knock the books out of RJ's hand when he is talking to me.  Another perfect example would be when I smack/punch him in the face when he isn't paying attension.  I also believe that I have randomly cursed at his dogs just to see their reactions.

Randomness is the best.

Typing my name doesnt anger me.  Saying it loudly, then running away without saying sumthing afterwards pisses me off.
