Ask Caden? Strange, it sounds somehow.. familiar. Well, whatever. The premise here is simple: send me a private message, usually using an assumed name if you don't want to be identified, and you, one of the great members of Realms of Hyrule, get to ask me ANYTHING* you want, and I'll answer the question to the best** of my ability! If you want my personal opinion on 17th century pirate life, then ask me! If you want to know where you lost your keys, then ask me too***! Or maybe you just want to know the best thing that goes with hot cocoa? Yeah, you can ask me that as well, though everyone knows hot cocoa and popcorn are perfect together. So yeah, ask away, and I'll be waiting! * - "Anything" does not necessarily mean "everything". Obviously, we here at Realms of Hyrule uphold a certain code of conduct, and we would respectfully request that any questions you may send should follow the guidelines to the site. ** - "Best" is entirely subjective by the creator of this topic. Please do not in any way take any of his responses to heart, nor should you actually attempt anything he suggests at home. We're only letting him do this because he will actually wear pants to do this. *** - Just because you can Ask Caden(TM) anything (see *), doesn't meant he'll give the right answer. I mean, look at him. He's got like three exclaimers on one paragraph. [doublepost=1462675789,1462460086][/doublepost]Hello and WELCOME to the first ever Ask Caden! I hope y'alls weekends are doing great, for I got myself a good question here. Let's cut right to it. Hey Anonymous, First, I'd like to thank you for your question here. I'm actually surprised to see this one thrown at me so soon, but I'm liking it! I'd also remind everyone if they haven't to save whatever they want and can from the RoH6 archives. They won't be around much longer. Now, onto your question at hand. The answer is more complicated than you may realize. As I've more or less played the same or similar iteration character since RoH1, I would say that I do not have any more ideas for Caden. All things considered, I consider him permanently retired as an active RP player character. Really, I think the reason I kept him going is because I always felt "weird" not having him around since that's who I'm mostly associated with. After a while, especially after Caden murder Sion, I really had nothing left for him to do in terms of creative RP ideas. That should have been it, and I needed to do something fresh. Now with that being said, I would also make note that I DO have a lot of ideas for fresh, new characters. Things I haven't been able to try before. I tried to get a few of the ideas I had off the ground, but ultimately nothing really "clicked" for me, which I can imagine came more from the exhaustion of being one character for so long nothing else sounded appealing anymore. Matanzas, in some ways, is essentially me going back to two failed ideas I had on six (a Goron character, a laconic but otherwise badass character) and morphing them into Ishii Matanzas. I can safely say I've had more fun with The Goron than I had with late RoH6 or even RoH7 Caden. That isn't to say Matanzas will be my only character, either. I have a couple of ideas for a second character, but I won't delve too much into it. Gotta have surprises, you know? So, to answer your question, I do have ideas and concepts I want to try out new here, as well as older ones that never panned out. Don't expect to see a Caden character sheet, though. Well, that's all the time I have for this week's Ask Caden. Thanks to the Anonymous member who sent that message, and I hope you enjoyed it! Until next time, keep those questions coming. Just.. not in the mouth.
