Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty 54" from omegaboot
Real fun stuff. Just finished reading all your fics here. Hope you complete the ones here too, eventually.

By the way, where are the Builders from?
Comments from author:
I'm hoping that I can get back to the fics that aren't finished at some point this summer. Might or might not happen but we'll see. This story will be finished at some point.

As for the builders, the builders are from Katrina's write up on builders. It's sort of a combination of every peasant or builder in various games.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty 54" from Doodle
Excellent chapter. 4,000/10

Are we going to find out the reaction(s) of various people from Rogue's reality to the fact you can go into a game, acquire abilities, play and then leave with them?
Comments from author:
Eventually yes. It's not really shown up as much as it's not as popular there.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty 54" from HappyWonKinobi
Honestly? Just for the heck of it (and for the awesome lab tech Rogue would then have), I want you to have her make the unholy lovechild of Forge and Beast! WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Honestly? We're back on track with the MistOfRainbows Awesomeness Train! Da-Daaa! :D

I loved this chapter and I, once again, can't wait for the next one to come out!

Here's a thing for ya: Roosterteeth Productions has this awesome and amazing series called RWBY (pronounced "ruby"), and they're starting on the second season. The first episode of the second season was posted for normal people today at 7 PM and new ones will be posted every Thursday (I think), also at 7 for the normal people (those who aren't sponsors). I love the awesomeness and Season 2 is definitely building upon what Season 1 started, so I think you should go and watch it. But first, watch Season 1, starting with the Red Trailer, then the White Trailer, then the Black Trailer, then the Yellow Trailer, and *then* Episode 1 (the Red and White trailers are awesome bits of fighting, and Black and Yellow have bits of plot in them. That's why you should watch them in order. Well, one reason, anyway.)
Comments from author:
I'll see how it goes, Forge is a great set of powers... beast... comes with negatives... but hey we'll see.

As for on track or off track we'll see how it goes.

As for the show, maybe I'll see it or maybe not. We'll see how it does.. the description online looks interesting at least...

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty 54" from (Recent Donor)nerfherder
Umm, a nudist receptionist? I'm all for continuing as you begin, but that might start a few protests from the religious right...
Comments from author:
Not if they have Gambit's powers... and well that's why you have a telepath on staff. :)

That said, that doesn't mean they are going to work nude... it just means they like being nude where they can.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Darrigo
Forge stared as the ruined factory turned into black sparkles and flowed into Rogue’s hands. “Is this even legal?”

Logan shrugged, “Technically she owns the land as of yesterday. Her magic will make sure the proper permits are filed.”

Forge looked shocked. "Your magic will do what? My God that's anti-bureaucracy magic! Please teach me."
Comments from author:
I can see that actually. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty 54" from valdimarian
I'm almost tempted to see what they could get up to in Tamriel (the Elder Scrolls world)... especially in the time of Oblivion, though Morrowind could be somewhat fun (the hero gets to kill a GOD).

Even worse is how broken it'll get if Game!Hermione gets involved and just twinks to the umpteenth degree... not that she didn't already of course!

I kind of want to know how Game!Harry and Xander would get along, since both are surrounded by hot chicks who have no problem doing naughty fun things to each other or to him.
Comments from author:
I don't see a Elder scrolls cross happening until I finish my other poor Elder scrolls crossover... but yeah I can see them totally geeking over it. :)

Yeah, I can see the game Hermione having a lot of fun breaking things. :)

As for the game Harry and Xander, I figure they'd be happy to have more males around. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty 54" from (Current Donor)Katrina
So much in this chapter is just sheer fun. Glad to see Rogue getting her minion on, and that she's taking advantage of the opportunity to contact Xander to ask her questions. I also enjoyed the Buffy explaining Builder philosophy to the SGC people, and then demonstrating things by building a portal. Yeah, their lives just got more interesting. Oh an Gambit being able to disguise himself as a herself, is just kind of lovely.

All in all, a very enjoyable chapter to read. Thank you :)
Comments from author:
Minions help do those things that you don't have time to do. :) As for contacting Xander, she's got some memories and the powers but she didn't get everything and hell taking the chance to open a permanent line of communication is a good thing. :)

I view her Builder philosophy as a (semi)responsible gun maker. We don't advertise to kids and we would rather nutcases not get our stuff but really what other people do with the stuff we make isn't our fault.

There are a couple of amusing female gambit pictures that inspired her giving the bracelet to him.

I'm glad that you enjoyed the chapter.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty 54" from lordamnesia
Gambit was always one of my favorite characters, and I think you've got his reaction pegged just fine. Plus, you might consider Rogue (or Xander when he gets there) creating something that actually heals the massive physical and mental trauma (but won't take away the stuff that makes them supers) that several of the X-Men/supers that are in the marvel world there, since he accidentally created a Builder there. And good god are there a ton of trauma victims that could be soooo much better with a competent magical healer. Off the top of my head, Gambit goes back to Omega class, Xavier, Cyclops, the Thing, Stark, Doom (could improve his disposition), etc, etc. Also, GM weapons are haxxorz, +50% crit?!? God I want that just in RL, not to mention on all my games.
Comments from author:
I'm glad I got his reaction pegged well enough. I figured after making sure that he could swap back he'd be okay, yeah I can work with that.

As for Rogue or Xander making something that could heal battle damage, yeah I can see them working on something like that or coming up with someone that can. Because really having a competent healer around is a must if you don't have plot armor a mile thick.
Gambit... Xavier... (Cyclops is already healed), the thing? I don't remember what's wrong with him. (other than he has mental issues about turning back.) Stark is on the list of people they should heal. (Doom? Nah.. scan him then kill him.)

The GM stuff is hacked. :) You know the funny part? The GM ring was seen in a video... it's actually probably a legit testing item. :) But yeah + 50% crit is hacked. All things considered Dawn will be sticking that enchant on things... :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty 54" from Drake
Another chapter. Yay! Thanks.

Since the knowledge of magic and the ability to perform magic are now common on that SGC world, why is Buffy (and the others) concerned about a portal to that world; or more precisely the secrecy and security of that portal? Millions will be able to perform magic within days and while magic item production will take a while to start, it will start. So at best they keep people from coming home with raid gear straight away. I can't really see Buffy caring about that. The others are still in their keep-the-secret mindset, but is there really an advantage to that, or would a public portal to the game world with (taxed) trade not be more advantageous? I guess I just can't see a reason to keep this particular information or this way of transport secret. And it will only be remotely useful if mages can't create portals and warlocks can't create summoning stones in/to the real world.
And it's not like the government could get away with shutting down the game now. One news report of a Holy Paladin/Restoration Druid/Holy Priest/Discipline Priest/Restoration Shaman working in a hospital and anyone trying to shut down the game will be called murderer and worse. It'd be hours before the game will be hailed as the best thing ever, not only for the improved health care, but also because of the massive cost reduction.

Emerald Dream. The dragons have fought there for eons and not been able to win, because they can't kill the enemy. Would a raid group be able to just go in and slaughter the enemy? I could accept it if there's a really complicated and involved process, but just a quick raid should be useless.
That said, the Nightmare attacks mentally. Will insanity stay with players? It did corrupt those dragons outside the portals, so can it corrupt players and spread terror to the 'real' world?
Oh, and killing the Nightmare and the others would probably not be possible in the Emerald Dream. You'd have to delve into the Earth itself, find the prison the titans constructed and enter it. Then find the creatures and find a way to permanently destroy what the Titans could not destroy. A truly epic quest that would (probably) need millions working together.

The king is dead? And the prince still a boy. I wonder what will happen now... given the player population outnumbering npcs now, will a player ascend to the throne? So much potential. Or is the king one of the NPCs that respawns?
Speaking of throne, I can see people (especially old, ill, or handicapped people) moving to the game world and staying. Could that be a replacement for many VA homes? Millions of full time players will change the face of Azeroth. Especially since they'll be a lot older than the average current player. Let's go SI to visit grandpa. lol

I wonder if Buffy will create a character on her own, just to smash those statues and get the classes. I think I'd try in her place.

Thanks for sharing. I really love the story and am looking forward to more.
Comments from author:
Buffy isn't concerned about people going to the SGC world. She's concerned about the fact that Charlie seemed to be able to use it to jump to other worlds or might be able to. She really didn't want millions of people having that ability in case they could leverage that to get to her world or to a world without defenses. She calmed down a lot once she realized that only a couple of people could do it.

Honestly I think a couple of public gates would be fun as it would let people bring back interesting stuff.. and yeah I agree the magical items would start with silk if nothing else.. then they would figure out ways to make better stuff...maybe not the best stuff but eventually someone would figure out something even without magical cloth or such things.

As for mages.. yeah they could probably portal into the wow cities... getting out might be an adventure. :) Warlocks might be the only way of getting people out without a nice public gate. It's something for them to consider.

As for shutting it down, I can't really see it happening at this point. Too many people already have abilities and Blizzard has servers in a lot of places... which means that if you shut it down... those other countries aren't going to because then they have the magic.

Not to mention... healers in hospitals. One or two renews.. and you're good. Cure disease and yeah...

As for the Emerald Dream... you would have to take people into the Titan's vault as you said... which is problematic. :)
Can the nightmare spread insanity to players that are there physically? It's possible. Can a raid group help against the monsters in the dream world? sure... can they defeat it? Not without way too much work. As for an epic raid to do it... maybe.

The King is dead, he didn't get brought back within the required time frame. As for who takes over, that could be interesting considering the prince is a boy.

You know, I can see some old people doing that depending on how aging works there... with it becoming more world like and less game like. I can certainly see disabled people looking for healing...

I can see that though for the SI visits... hell I can see people looking at houses... or eventually talking someone into making an instanced house for players... :) Where everyone basically goes to their own house unless someone takes you to their house... that could be a lot of fun.

Yeah, I can see Buffy smashing statues just for more power. :) I can also see her talking Dawn out of a copy of the legendary heirloom stuff so that she can make everything she wears out of it. :)

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty Three" from Chan
Ah the amusing chaos as a number of worlds apparently bleed into each other wondering how this will blow the mind of SG1 and if various other worlds figure it out well more fun to be had.
Comments from author:
Actually that little bit is explained... sort of in the next chapter. The worlds aren't actually bleeding together... :) As for SG1... they're having some issues believing things. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty Three" from Michaelsuave
Well, it was a very interesting mix of realms but it has gone so far off the tracks that this might as well be a drop folder for plot bunnies. Good writing overall but impossible to connect point A from the beginning of this story to the current plot point zx46#. In short, jumped the shark but fun otherwise.

You mean shark jumping isn't a time honored sport? Rats.
