    In reply to AnimeAnnemarie honestly I kinda just forget that the e means something and type out effect its more of a tick if anything and the I originally type definitely but I must of thought it was misspelled so I click the auto correct version without reading it my b.

    Also he doesn't suffocate immediately that's something that happens over time as side effect of his semblance since basically he's becoming the epicenter of the freezing effect. Or more accurately he's becoming the exosphere himself and freezing everything around him which is why he can't breath.


    Also grammar nazi really

    They haven't said whether they will be spin-off stories or re-tellings of previous volumes. Either way, it's exciting. Plus, it also means we could see team RWBY potentially team up with the Teen Titans and the Justice League

    Yeah, it wasn't half bad but let's remember that Volume 5 Trailer also looked promising and we ended up with a mess. Big mess. Like "holy hell, that was disappointing" kind of mess.

    I'm an optimist I swear!


    I hope that this Volume will prove people wrong about RT and their abilities. But I do have my fears though...

    In reply to RyujinX I actually didn't think vol 5 was that bad don't get me wrong it was pretty bad but it a least answered some questions I've been having

    Hey, no problem with liking the Vol., just sayin that we should keep our expectations low until the episodes will actually come out.

    As for another topic I wish to discuss with... well, anyone really, you think how much they've already done? We know for a fact that they were finishing writing episode 12 a few months (two maybe?) back and scenes from Vol.5 Trailer were taken from three to four episodes if I recall correctly.

    With all of this I think it's safe to assume that they have pretty much finished writing the script for the whole Volume this time (Thank God!) and at least two or three episodes have to be animated already.


    So, as I said, what do you think? I mean anyone who bothers to read this. Please talk to me jaune

    In reply to RyujinX that's what I've heard. They actually took the time to write the whole volume and then animated it. As well as rehiring an animator who work closely with  Monty to

    okay so i have a really risky idea and not going to lie I kinda got the idea from Fairy Tail so I'd appreciate some feedback on this on whether or not this is to magicy ( yes I know that's not a word).


    The power of words

    Allows the user to bring the meaning of words to reality as long as the conditions are meet that is. Example if the user said the word paralysis the target would become immobile and unable to move. There are 4 conditions in order for this to work


    1) The words must be contained within a book of some kind

    2)  They word in question can only affect one target at a time

    3) The user can't have written the word for it to be illegible to work ( like he can't have just typed or written certain words in a book that be cheating if that makes any sense)

    4) It can only be one word at a time ( he can't just say freeze and burn together, it have to be freeze, then burn you know as separate words)

    5) It can't be words that just kill people instantly (like death or something)

    6) The intended target must be within hearing distance of the word for it to effect them.


    Okay I think that about covers it, now I know it might be a bit sketchy but give it some thought and if you see something I should add then let's talk about it cause while I love this idea I do realize that it might be flawed 

    Till next time

    In reply to Horus1122 Yea, this is, uh...too OP. Even if you take away the ability to just use 'death', there's tons of other words you could use to instantly win a fight. I don't think this fits very well into the world of RWBY, personally confused

    #33741677 - 3 days ago

    In reply to AnimeAnnemarie I originally had it so you couldn't one shot people ( those are the exact words I used by the way) but I thought it sound to weird and change it to instant kill. Hey that's cool personally I think it would fit in well, it probably be pretty hard to use if you think about it, try reading a book for specific words while Grimm are chasing you and people are shooting at you. But it might need some tweaks ( is that spelled right?) Cause looking back on it now it does seem a little to OP, more than I originally thought any way


    i still have that robot message werid

    In reply to Horus1122 Just bring a dictionary. You literally got all words in an easy-to-find alphabetical order. I think calmly reading a book to find the right word instead of fighting, which you describe as being good because it makes it 'less OP to use', is actually really unfitting for the world of RWBY. How does the semblance "know" whether you are reading out of a real book and not something you wrote? How does the semblance "know" which words are off-limits? Weird restrictions and rules like that never make much sense to me for semblances. They tend to be more general. This just seems too specific yet OP.

    I personally was pretty okay with Volume 5. A bit rattled by the fact that Hazel took that hit through his back with no repercussions, but... Yeah. Also, I get that people didn't like how Weiss' development towards summoning made her a bit dependent on it, but I'd say it was more towards getting the feel for when's a good time for it and when isn't, you know? I think it made for a good moment then. Plus we finally got to see what the heck Jaune's Semblance is... Also, for the record, Vernal's weapon, and the fact that she had TWO of them... just seemed a tad overpowered in that fight with Weiss... That was just... Wow. They made it way too powerful to not make you question "Wait a minute, if that's how strong those things are, how the heck is Weiss not dead yet?"

    In reply to AnimeAnnemarie I'm just going to summarize what I said. Wow never thought about that with Grimm that be efficient. That would never work against a human/ faunus they'd never give him the time to find a word to use, normal people don't just wait during a fight especially when they don't know whether or not how strong there semblance is. Its a mixture of eyes and brain power. You make it sound like the semblance is alive. Remember that I'm still working on this semblance until I can find a place I'm comfortable with it. Maybe I should make the power/ effect of the word stronger or weaker based on how much emotion is put into it?


    thats weird this site ate my response?

    This robot thing is just annoying the fuck out of me I can't really explain why

    In reply to Horus1122 Put sticky notes on the pages with useful words, like stuck, glued, unconscious, and dead. Now you can skip to those instantly, no waiting required. I stand by my point that the semblance is overpowered. Also, I know I made it sound alive, I did that to illustrate how weird it is that you have these weird rules. Who's checking on it?

    In reply to AnimeAnnemarie okay got to admit I totally didn't think about the stick notes thing that make this way easier. I kinda want it that way if I'm being completely honest. I think its fine to have a few that are op ,just not all of them. It more of a subconscious feeling kinda like spidermans Spidey sense
