    I think Case Files is more a equal mix of everything TM than just mostly fate.
    And Case Files is more in the vein of what I want from TM, I hope they make more stuff like it.

    The issue I had was

    Having zero interest in the product (fgo as a whole, story, gameplay, aesthetic) and only caring about the worldbuilding (lore) present in the product is akin to watching this entire video

    when you have not played God of War at all and then going on a forum and being like
    "oh wow so like Autreus is Loki's brother? Both their mothers name is Laufey"
    Personally, I do care about FGO's story, but I'd rather not play the game. It's just a matter of investing my time and not getting sucked into a money trap. I've already been there with Fire Emblem Heroes, and that's the NICE mobage compared to FGO, so yeah...

    I feel like I accidentally caused this thread to derail, and for that I'd like to apologise

    No need. This thread would have been empty and boring without your starting of a shipping discussion which later led to where we are now. So in fact, we should thank you for keeping this thread alive.

    Is an active but off-topic thread really better than a "dead" one, though?

    Yes, especially because this particular tangent did start as on-topic and because if we restricted it to on-topic posts, then this thread would be dead for months at a time, and that's boring.

    Okay, maybe it's not your intention, but now I feel like you're just being difficult. I did indeed say that I love it when creative media that takes place in fictional settings and such, cleverly use lore from real life history, or from real life mythologies, but that doesn't mean that it's just because that helps me appreciate the (in this case) game more, I would have appreciated that kind of lore anyway, as it's based on real life mythological lore, and it's interesting. So I'm both learning interesting mythological lore that I didn't know (in God of War's case the game actually made me so fascinated and interested that I ended up spending hours online on wikis and such, reading about Norse lore and mythology, as a result), and I'm appreciating the world in the game more. And I did indeed say that if a work of any kind has lore in it, then it helps me to understand that work better if I know that lore, and that I find lore from the collective universes of books, mangas, anime series or games that I enjoy, to be super duper fascinating and interesting, but I also said that I just find lore in general, whether real life lore from history and ancient civilizations, or from old mythologies, to be super duper fascinating as well. It's both. They're not mutually exclusive. Like I said, I just love lore.

    To put this in a practical example: Norse lore and mythology has always fascinated me, and I have read about various tidbits from it here and there long before playing God of War. Then when I played the game, the use of said lore and mythology in it made me appreciate it even more, but it also made me even more curious, so I ended up spending a lot of time online reading about stuff from the real life lore and mythology it's based on. That in turn made me appreciate the game even more of course, but it also meant I learned a lot of fascinating and interesting stuff that I would have appreciated anyway, regardless of whether I had played the game or not. Not least of all because there are, obviously, many differences between what the actual mythology says, and how it is implemented in the game.

    "The world is just another word for the things you value around you, right? That's something I've had since I was born. If you tell me to rule such a world, I already rule it."

    I honestly think that a thread that's moving slowly but with actual relevant discussions would have been much better than an off-topic thread with discussions that is only of interest to a few people. If you like very active threads with tons of notifications and people going off-topic all the time, I don't think this place is very suitable at all for you.

    To be fair, this started on topic and has remained tangentially on topic, even if it isn't about the Case Files plot as has currently been translated on this thread.

  16. #716
    Hi, I'm new to this forum and this thread so I don't really know the etiquette here. I've read everything that was translated so far and was wondering if the translation is still being done due to the time that has passed since it was last updated. Sorry if I'm just bothering a dead thread.

    Hello welcome to the forum, yes the translation should still be happening but right now it just depends on when the translator has any time to spare.

    The wait for translations when 7 novels are out now makes me so frustrated how I don't know enough Japanese to read the raw version.

    Such is the truth of fan translations, unfortunately. This isn't people's job so they aren't, and shouldn't be, obligated to do it quickly.
