JoD Reala. As NiD Reala flys around, JoD Reala would just smush him with a mare balloon. :P

Or JoD Reala would make NiD Reala faint at the sight of his pink nails. XD

If JoD came before NiD, does that mean Jackle was created early and just locked up or was he a third First-Level that went wrong? And where would he be locked up for that matter? Did Jackle replace that chameleon in JoD? Are all planes in the Night Dimension interconnected so that multiple events on a timeline can occur at once resulting in the "Dream Drops of Remembrance" theory being correct and wrong at the same time? Could it really be that NiGHTS rebelled to protect the Nightopias?

Confusion!

Wouldn't JOD be the third game, Since Christmas NiGHTS took place after the first one?

My thought is why is it every time I hear Hard mode Cerberus I think of Egg Dragoon boss music or visa versa? They are similar but not really...bah I don't know.

I like various anime shows, mostly shoujo and maho-shoujo. I also like reading books of fantasy-writers (Andre Norton, Phillip Pullman, Gart Nix etc). I like listening to rock or folk-rock music. I also love various pretty shiny things. I myself write and draw various fan things from time to time. And yes, I also love sleeping, dreaming and being lazy.
Why, oh why every time I hear Helen say "I do have free will" in the final cutscenes I dislike her so much?( honestly, she sounds like she is hypnotized and doesn't believe what she's saying!

Quotes from my dad while playing thru some JOD today - XD

(Bellbridge - Reala confronts NiGHTS)
Dad: Oh what's he gonna do? Reala can't beat him! .. er, her... uhh...
Me: We're still not sure. XD Heck, we can't be entirely sure about Reala either, he's got bright pink nails now!
Dad: *pff* Ah, he's just a rock star!

(Ending cutscene with Will and Helen)
Sister: Wait a second, where's her mother?
Dad: She's watching them - she thinks it's nice!
Me: ....... where's Will's Dad??
Dad: >8D HE'S watching them.. HE thinks it's NICE...
Sister and I: BWAAAAAAGH!!
*much ROFLing*

(Aqua Gardens - Link Challenge)
Dad: An octopus?
Me: Octopaw! He poops rings and I fly through as many as I can. 8D
Dad: O_o

(Girania jumps at the screen right outta the gate)
Dad: HOLY!!

(Queen Bella)
Dad: Geez, it's a spider!
Me (the arachnophobe): Yeah! She's actually kinda cute for a spider.
Dad: *stares* I never thought I'd hear those words out of your mouth.

It's been a while since Dad watched me play - kinda fun really! Can you tell we watch MST3K? XD

You, Level 99, and I really have to do Mystery NiGHTS Theatre 3000. It would be awsome. :lol:

Is Reala a princess? Please don't ask why I thought of that.

Sort of.

If Wizeman is king, and Reala is his child, then Reala is a prince/princess of sorts.

I can just imagine a giant TRiPPY floating over the Dream Gate with sunshine banners. :P

Dombalon and Chamelan are pure awsomeness. That is all. (Bomamba's cool too! *brick*)
Octopoh reminds me of Winnie the Pooh. I like it. :D

I'm sad to be separated from my JoD and NiD/Xmas NiD right now. But my parents don't like us bringing consoles with us on trips. They say we "should be socializing instead of gaming." We do socialize, but even our granparenys at the end of the day like to sit and watch tv. We play our DS's, anyways. :o Maybe I'll just sneak the systems next year.

"Erika, why is your backpack so heavy?"
"You know me. I've got alotta stuff."
"Yeah, but this is REALLY heavy. What's in here?"
"! No peeking! I have private stuff in there!"

Well, JoD NiGHTS is glitter incarnate, and Christmas NiGHTS is the epitome of frilly, so Christmas JoD would be a bit like Liberace, I think. :ph34r:

He's trying to properlt write his book about the meaning of life, but NiGHTS keeps chasing him and spilling his ink. :P

I like the glitter; NiGHTS strikes me as a glittery guy. Reala, though, had an atrocious costume.

@iLLViLLAiN - Half and half. The kids are...basically lucid and they can change their dreamscapes... For some reason though they don't seem to grasp that they can change certain aspects of their Nightopias. Sure, Nightopias reflect your heart, it doesn't mean that everything is unmovable. Depending on what's going on though Helen and Will can change what's happening to their 'scapes.

For example, when Nightmare invades they can either allow destruction or stop it. ... It's obvious what happens. by taking an Ideya to heart (no pun intended) they can shape theirs dreams just a little more...

Of course this thought of changing dreamscapes is just a theory. It was going to be put into a fanfic, but I put it on hiatus. Too bad. I liked the whole "natural rules of a dream" thing. For instance...if it's natural in a dream world for trees to talk, that feature will only change if enough interference disrupts the dream or one becomes lucid and changes it that way. Or...it could be natural for the wind to "sing" and relate a song to someone.

Or it could be normal to go back in time a bunch of times. Who knows?

Wait... There's a difference between Nightopias and dreams... *blink* Can't believe I didn't see that before. XP

Short answer, the Wii can't change the Nightopia just right. In canon...well they were in on the ride I guess... They wanted to get their Ideya back and play with NiGHTS while protecting their hearts. I don't think it occurred to them to change a place that was a paradise/utopia.

Edit: Okay this is realllly bugging me. How many missions should there have been in the first place? There's 5 we get in-game per Nightopia, but could other missions have been added? What would have been the proper amount of missions per Nightopia?

...

Yes I consider this important. I'm strange like that.

Well, if they were lucid I'd guess they got their issues over with in a week or two because consecutive dreams that tell the same story would seem impossible without going lucid. If they weren't going lucid I'd guess that they were dreaming for about a month because I'm sure those kids would have had dreams that were totally unrelated to NiGHTS and Nightopia. Then again, if they weren't lucid and their NiGHTS dreams kept coming back every single night, I'd want to know what those kids were indulging in before going to sleep. Maybe they were playing NiD or something. Then again I don't recall either kid having anything video game related in their bedrooms. Maybe their Saturns were in the living room.

I think NiGHTS has some omniscient power to just invade otherwise normal dreams. Therefore, it's not that they kids are having NiGHTS dreams so much as NiGHTS is a scary stalker, and he should be charged with breaking and entering childrens' subconcious.

As for the kids' abilities to affect their surroundings, they do; they created it. Theorectically, the Nightopia will change if the contents of the dreamer's heart changes, and smalll things like Pians and Maren can be dealt with more efficiently. So, they are a bit Lucid, but not totally in control.
