I'm finishing the main game first. There's no way the first option is making a comeback in this poll. o_O
Well, while I'm at it, here's a little tidbit on what's happened since chapter 15 (and I'm gonna make some DBZ references, while I'm at it):
Last time on Tactics Universe, Elibe's special forces defeated the sinister Erik, whose life was cut short by Kelik. The group then headed towards Caelin, approaching from the east, where it was less guarded. Ben and Roman, two mercenaries under the command of Captain Drake (who, for still unknown reasons, did not join--nor did any of his other mercenaries), joined their forces, with Ben in the main division and Roman in a secondary division. While wiping the outside of Caelin clear of Etrurian forces, Shuuda, Inanna, and Gordon join the fray--they were timely rescued by Levion, who's next mission is to find Shon.
At the end of the battle, Levion and Shon find Anakin, Kelik, and crew at the gate. Shortly after their reunion they enter the castle; however, Kelik stays back to meet a sinister figure in the background. This warrior makes quick work of Kelik, who, rashly assumes he is an enemy and fights him head on. Anakin attempts to come to the rescue, but the real savior of the day is the enemy's superior, who spares Anakin and Kelik on a whim.
Inside, Kelik is sent to rescue Siegfried, while the rest of the army fights off Tristan and his troops inside of Caelin. Shon and Siegfried happily reunite.
Some time later, Kelik makes a deal with a pirate band in order to gain access to a ship that can move the rebellion's army past the Ostian river. In a tough "Davy Back Fight", they get the best of Zoro and the pirates, and soon find themselves a short distance from Fort Darner, which itself is a short distance from the Ostian gate, guarded by Howard and his legion, with Fort Darner guarded by the young, proud Etrurian called Ethan. The rebellions surround the enemy and capture both in one fell swoop, and quickly continue to take on Earnest and his men inside the castle, before Etrurian reinforcements arrive.
Inside Ostia, an Etrurian named Rex joins the group to redeem himself for his father's disgraceful actions. Once the Universe Rebellion conquers Ostia, they look for imprisoned Ostian civilians, and stumble upon a scholar and spy by the name of Yue, who has kept Paul, the Marquess of Ostia, alive.
NEXT TIME, ON TACTICS UNIVERSE Z

Yeah, I'm alive, just not doing so great. Been astonishingly busy with school (I always think that I'm going to have free time if I work hard and don't waste time, and yet I always end up busy for more hours than I want to count) and I wasn't on any forums or "social interaction" sites for like a month, then returned to my near-dead forum, but still have only started to get back into my normal online habits...
I never did upload those chapter 21 videos. After having the incomplete ones sit on my desktop for about 2 months, I rendered them, but I'm only like 1/2 way done recording the chapter, so... :(
In terms of actual game process, I haven't done crap since like, the last post. Yep, I always act like I'm going to accomplish so much, and even if I DO accomplish a ton (which I DID) it never lasts long enough. I'll let you guys know if I ever get past chapter 24 though. Oh, and I've decided to cut my game a little shorter too, if possible, so I can release this stuff.
Now I just need some motivation and some feedback on my plot that I worked so hard on... lol. *and maybe if I had formatted scripts, I could work faster...*
