Serious questions:
On a scale from 1 to 10, how fun is DotS?
Best thing ever?
What games do you play?
Do you own any certain item that means a lot to you?

Not so serious question:
Should the Scarlet Devil Mansion have their own shrine?

-More charismatic: the most interesting vampire in Gensokyo, or the most interesting man in the world?
Hmmm interesting, this is qui--
< Sakuya appears behind Helepolis >
Of course it is the Mistress. What a silly question!

-If these two ever met, what would happen?
Gensoukyou would have a nice party at the SDM.

-What is your career goal, if any?
While 'starting your own business' is extremely clich? and most common answer people give, I remain sceptical about such things. Those things don't just happen, you need to work for them.

I do aim for a specific job as a employee (not perse manager, could be) which might make me somewhat known in the country, but not too known. Don't intend to be famous but I do intend to be successful and knowledgeable (hopefully).

-If one were to take a trip to the Netherlands, what would be the 1 place you would recommend as a must-visit?
Madurodam.



What are your views on the portrayal of charisma breakage?
Absolutely unforgivable! That those artists dare to do such things to the Mistress. [

If it's not acceptable is some cases, how does Shino make it so? (Like I already know, but I want your views.  :derp: )
Shino on the other hand keeps doing it, in a fashioned way. Her charisma breaks are superiour. Maybe because she actually treats the characters in her own sense and then performs unsuspecting break due to an event while other artists just randomly make her cry like cheek pinching and similar stuff.

Oh, and before I forget...

Pick someone (Touhou) to fight against Remilia (preferably someone she hasn't met)  in what you would think to be an epic encounter and something to write about. XD
The Mistress would not bother with such things. It not worth her time. Though, Prime Minister of The Netherlands, Mark Rutte. People claim he is charismatic, young, fresh and good leader in the cabinet. He could be taught a lesson to learn his place. (though I wonder if it w ould be 'epic')



You're an admirer of Remilia; what is your opinion on the other residents of the SDM?
The Mistress' friends and servants are just as valued as she is. SDM members canon is pretty solid and it allows artists to turn it into their own 'Dark Tewi' and produce awesome, enjoyable and dramatic work out of it. Lady Patchouli seems a bit strict and harsh in some official ZUNdialogues but still, they are all enjoyable.

SDM has the family charm, like Eientei and the Yakumos. Pitty Chireiden isn't often portrayed like that or often with missing characters.

How are the public libraries where you live?
Enjoyable and useful and civil. Though I haven't stepped in one for the last 12 years.

What non-Touhou games do you enjoy?
I don't play a lot of games anymore. Lack of time/interest. My habits change and shift between games. For example, I picked up Diablo II again (Damn you Pesco). My classmates forced me into Dwarf Fortress, so occasionally do that.

Though I used to be pretty addictive Unreal Tournament 1 and Tomb Raider player few years ago.



When did you first play age of empires? Ever played online on the zone?
1996, from a German Demo CD which was attached in a magazine. We bought the magazine with my elder sister because it contained walkthrough for Tomb Raider 1. I bought the game when it got released. (I still have the CD btw!)

1998, when we got dial-up internet (56k YEAH) I started playing on the zone.net. That is also how I got my nickname: Helepolis_H which I simplified to Helepolis for the rest of my interwab life.

Who is the worst/most underpowered DotS heroine, in your opinion?
Ah Mr. Headcrabs. This is hard to answer because 'underpowered' is influenced by teammates, the girls in your team and your enemies. In singular isolated situations based on their skills, I would say

Who's the best/most overpowered?
Koishi. But same as previous question.



Elaborate on all the specific changes related to your position that are bound to happen with the introduction of the new premium service MikoPics.



Who is the Purvis?
A man who keeps turning things into diamonds.

What do you feel the greatest problem the forum has ever faced is?
Maintaining the Touhou addict section. It is like the place people will visit. We've had some terrible threads and it is good thing those are gone and strict rules are made regarding them.

How much you bench, bro? (In real measurements, not kilopascals or whatever you use)
Let me tell you bro. I struggle between 60 and 70 Kg, I am not much of a powerhouse anyway.



If you were to give the human race a letter grade for its performance so far, what would you give it (pluses and minuses included) ?
Oh dear... I'll just name the minuses because the pluses are something you shouldn't be proud of, you should be worried of minuses existing:
(-) Scamming people with their so called price influences due to events (1 euro 75 per liter for benzine? you got to be kidding me. Sense makes none.)
(-) Selfishness. One for all and all for Me
(-) Arrogance. Riding on the back of others, stabbing down friends to make him/herself better.
(-) Unreliability. Unreliable humans are worse than an unreliable piece of machine like let us say, a phone.
(-) Trust.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?
Music and certain artwork, a combination of them is even better. All 'inspirational' work I outputted, whether it be drawing, creating something or building scripts/levels has always been supported by music.

Go home and be a family man?
I prefer to remain the Student for now.



On a scale from 1 to 10, how fun is DotS?
Fun rating: 6. It is a RPG-Strategy game. It will create anger, it will create raging it will cause both enjoyable and non-enjoyable moments. I rated it 6 because the game balance is bad. It used to be a 8 when the game wasn't messed up.

Best thing ever?
Music. Without it, I have no idea what I would do.

What games do you play?
See above similar question =3

Do you own any certain item that means a lot to you?
A little plush toy which is attached to my keychain, a gift from my elder sister. While the item was worth only 1,75 euro, it was her own birthday when she gave it to me.

Not so serious question:
Should the Scarlet Devil Mansion have their own shrine?
Hakurei Reimu would drop a giant Yin Yang ball on top of that and the mansion.

What's the best painting in the mistress' collection?
I am too stupid to recognize them. Not much of an art lover in form of paintings.

What would you do at 4 o'clock in the morning? That is, if you had the urge to get up around then.
I would instinctively stroll to the kitchen make some tea then stroll back to my bedroom to think: "fuck, why am I up?"

Favorite literary work you've read?
I kind of detest literary work. I only read it if forced, so I cannot say I am quickly impressed by literary. I rather read a nice story book.

In hindsight, do you think your test run of Mafia was fun?
It was so-so. The environment I've been in wasn't newbie friendly though it was fun to play. But extremely time intensive, way more than being the host of a board game and such.

Did you ever do that Dormio curbstomping in DotS you promised?
He keeps teaming up with me, so I cannot kick his ass =|

I have no idea, it is plain boring. While reading it might be useful information or educational, I just don't feel like it.

What's your favorite form of entertainment?
Hanging out with a group of known friends either doing activities or just talking randomly and having fun laughing.

You take your tea straight, or do you add things to it?
Straight, though I tried the classical stuff (milk / honey).

Wait what but I did, and you didn't answer D:
ORZ , it was listed in the major quote post but I forgot to fill it in  ORZ. My apologies =/

Elaborate on all the specific changes related to your position that are bound to happen with the introduction of the new premium service MikoPics.
My position isn't much affected by the changes on the forum, if that is what you tried to ask. I am a moderator of RikaNitori and BunBunMaru. I don't know what MikoPics is going to bring us, but the test run done by Miss TSO surely promised us good things. Surely it will also help hosting images easier without breaching the image rules.


What's the most difficult challenge you've ever overcome?
Growing up. No I am seriously, growing up is for everybody a challenge which has to be overcome each and every single time. It isn't just about growing up to 'become an adult'. More like mentally growing up, achieving things in real life. Focussing your mind on the next thing ahead.

How do you approach a major challenge in your life?
Determination and confidence. I use these two as a base. If you do not have a goal, it is useless. If you have no confidence in your skills and self, better just go cry in a corner. Yes, sounds harsh and tough, but it has been mostly the base for me.

However, I thank god I never had major challenges in terms of health and such. Surely there are plenty of people both I know and I don't know who try to overcome it every single day. The challenges I had were merely related to school or a job. Don't know if I should consider them major, but they still feel like major accomplishments.


What's your outlook on the future of the world?
I don't bother much with the future aside than thinking now and then about what I want to become. I don't plan things ahead too much unless they are of interest. Living a schedule is a boring life.

Just what is a "Helepolis" and why do you don such a moniker?

A SIEGE ENGINE OF MASS TOWERNESS.
No seriously what is it.
A Helepolis is originally a gigantic siege tower which consisted out of several floors. Each floor had hatches which could be opened to fire arrows, pour down hot oil or just fire large ballistic arrows using giant crossbows. The tower even had a drawbridge to overcome the castle walls and also a ram to RAM INTO DOORS.

Though this is the real Helepolis we are talking about, my nickname originally comes from the Age of Empires 1 unit, which is actually a 'Ballista' but the elite version was Helepolis which fired twice as fast and longer range.


JUST LOOK AT THE FIERY FIRE EMITTING FROM THE UNIT ICON.

It was my favourite unit in Age of Empires, thus I quickly settled myself with Helepolis_H on the Zone.com (Helepolis was already taken, orz)

Come to think of it, I always wanted to be the Red colour in any game. This is 1998 we are talking about, it seems the Mistress was already slowly pulling my fate towards her.

UNREAL TOURNAMENT '99.
'99
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unreal_Tournament

Does it read UT99 in the title?

 NO

"Retrospectively, the game has also been referred to as UT99 or UT Classic to differentiate it from its numbered sequels."

No, it is just called 'UT' , only silly people who wanted to be 'famous' just like forced-memes call it 'UT99' or UT classic. This is why wikis in general are horrible material. sigh*

I'll kick your ass when UT server comes, Dormio :3

And, uh, hao2balancework/study/life?
Maintain a healthy sleep pattern. I kind of question why people wreck themselves by sacrificing sleep for some, in my opinion, silly gaming or w/e. I personally do not believe in sleep deprive or other similar cases. At the end, the individual person him or herself is responsible for it. Sure, some people have it tough due to terrible RL situations or other mental/physical issues. Those cannot help it, they wish they could. But the rest? Questions...

Also, why is your accent so awesome?
Is it? I never considered my accent to be something unique or special. Not in comparison to Pesco.

Nothing. The Mistress' powers will punish them without any effort.

How far back can you trace the mistress' influence on your life?
Well... so far only back to 1998 due to Age of Empires constant red colour.  Coincidence or Fate?

How far would you go for the mistress' wellbeing?
I would die for her She doesn't exist.


SO HELE, WHY IS REMILIA SUCH AN AWFUL CHARACTER?
Actually, she is.

Today I was reading PMiSS once more and I forgot that Remilia is infact a childish selfish little bitch. She is badass, she is the mistress she is just plain awfully evil and egoistic. Sometimes I wonder how Miss Izayoi handles her or her SDM citizens. 10.5 proved she was pretty awful. PMiSS proves it, BAiJR as well.

But I like her for this reason. I like her for the reason her appearance and canon facts are simply awesome.
