A short guide to the Terrain of Magical Expertise's main features, including character creation, the three regions and the rules of virtual combat.


I am willing to bet money that someone, someday, will attempt to make this concept an actual online game.

This very comprehensive the information of the game, though presumably there are more rules or not knowing any secrets in it.
Just need to know, if just for a language..

I can now understand why it took you so long to make this fourth episode! You are making something else to go with it. It makes me realize how gorgeous everything looks now that it's not in sprite form. I'm not trying to discredit that of course. It does seem that more and more people are not using sprites anymore. This was great to see, simply because of how it explains everything so well.

I guess you just nixed the "TV" part of the website and are now just at "Tome". It was weird to see a cartoon that didn't have any of those great websites. The animation is of course as great as ever. This really does show that you can work with any new kind of thing. You're on fire, old friend!

now this is a very informative game video if ever i seen one.
The Voicing was amazing it fit well into place with the given scenes and very smoothly integrated not to mention how clear it was.
the animation was very well performed, the special effects drawing style colors, just everything.
i do have to say if this was a real game its sad to see only social and player battles but since this has nothing to do with the performance of the video itself i have not taken this into account with my rating on this video. a minor point though; as seeing the nature of the game if players were to integrate their own character designs it is sad to see every single character in this video is drawn in the same style, while taking into account many people have many different drawing styles and taking this into account with the nature of the video a few different styles would have made this video even better than it already is.

cheers on a job well done.

Not bad for an introduction, I wouldn't call it anything that lets me go waw but hey for the series it's a nice introduction. You might have considered making it as the first submission for the series though xD
