Even though Jaune's family seems to know he went to Beacon (and partially BECAUSE of this) I still think there's some special reason they kept him out of Battle School and that Ozpin arranged for him to get into Beacon.

Well I guessed that already.

>yfw this would allow Atlas to control four extremely powerful, effectively immortal robo-girls who could wipe the floor with anyone and anything

That I did not consider.

>yfw Ironwood is working towards getting Penny to try and inherit the Fall Maiden's powers under Ozpin and friends' noses because it's "what is necessary"

Seems a little far-fetched. This is M&K we're talking about.

>yfw Cinder has her plan all fucked up because Ironwood was intentionally helping her up to this point by basically letting her have access to all his computer systems in Vale

Once again, plausible, I want it to be true, but unlikely knowing the writers

>yfw Penny does fuck up Pyrra and actually is set up to inherit the Maiden powers

You really think a robot has a chance against Magneto?

>yfw the War Against Atlas plotline becomes a thing and Cinder is curbed to the sidelines/dies like a bitch

I kind of want this to happen. It would create a cool subplot between Weiss and Winter, especially since a war would likely put a lot of pressure on Weiss as the daughter of a major supporter of the Atlas military.

What if the power of Maiden-hood isn't additive, but multiplicative?

As in, amber was a total fucking chump who would have flunked out of a huntsman school like Signal and was only strong because she was a maiden.

If someone with actual power and talent inherits Maiden-hood, their power is bolstered by like X number of times or it's ^2 or ^3 or whatever.

>>78882763

Well, we don't really know how being a Maiden works. We know it's "magic", in that it's not like Aura/Semblance or Dust and seems to not have any hard limits on use like either, but at the same time, it was clearly limited by Amber's ability to like, aim and control it.

She might have won the fight if she'd started off at full Maiden rather than wait for her Aura to burn down first.

>>78882817

>a couple of average hunters could have taken down Amber

Eh, Amber was caught in an ambush by someone using what must be a fairly rare type of power and a trained assassin with robo-legs. And whatever prep and training Cinder has had - she seems like she's working from some experience there.

That's not exactly optimal engagement scenario.

I feel they really need to explain exactly WHY and WHAT makes a Maiden much more powerful than the average hunter. Sure, Amber can control the weather, but we've seen tons of other super powers in the show; Ruby has super speed, Pyrrha controls metals, Yang can hulk out, Blake, Sun and Flynt can all create clones, Nora can absorb electricity, Jaune can make a super armor, Emerald can make hallucination, and Weiss and Glynda's glyph almost seem broken with how powerful they can be, Weiss in particular with how she can implement them, from casting Haste, to creating giant blocks of ice, and she'll eventually gain a summoning power.

So what makes Maidens special?
>>
>>78882957
>>78882887

Well, as far as we know, there are 4 Maidens at any time. And the only way to lose track of the mantle of power is if the girl thinks of an old lady or a guy and we run the roulette.

Cinder and co attacked Amber - when one presumes they could arrange to attack any of the four, they're supposed to be out spreading gifts to the world or whatever - even in secret. So they probably picked Amber because she was the least experienced, powerful, or skilled. Or her abilities regardless of the power were something Cinder could plan to counter.

Multiple powers, ability to use them without Aura.
We see Amber's Aura visibly break, then she continues spamming shit until she takes the arrow to her back.
It's likely that prior to being a Maiden, Amber was just that. Average. She also seems fairly young, so it's possible she didn't know the extent of her powers, or wasn't very proficient yet.
Cinder and co targeted her for a reason, and I doubt it was just luck.

Welcome to 4chan, your mandatory fetishes will be delivered asap.
>>
>>78883142

Well, M&K kind of covered this on the livestream. Aura and Semblance come from the same source - the soul or whatever. So presumably if your Aura is beat to shit, your semblance will probably not go as smooth. Depending on the type of Semblance there's also a lot of concentration involved and it burns your stamina up fast.

Dust is a substance which, while narratively functional as magic, isn't magic as it has it's own specific rules and functions based on the type, and is at least somewhat used up over time.

Magic is something else, a power which isn't linked with Aura or Dust and doesn't appear to have their limitations, nor does it necessarily run out of power. We just don't have enough experience with the subject to understand if it's properly unlimited, and the only thing holding Amber back was as much power as she felt she needed to use, if it's only unlimited in the sense that you can use it as long or as often as you like but you can only output so much at any one time, or maybe even if the different Maidens have different powersets.

Given this is a global conspiracy, we're unlikely to get those exact details until somebody in the cast actually goes 100% Maiden.
>>
>>78883265
I don't know where the cinder one comes from honestly.
>>
>>78883260
Also, after Weiss used her Semblance to help Ruby defeat the Nevermore, she's visibly tuckered out. Maidens must be immune to limitations like that. I also think there's something bigger to them than just the special powers, like if they combine their powers you wind up with something literally god tier, or they help keep a great evil at bay.

How much you guys want to bet that Yang's innocence is going to be outed by the end of next episode?
>>
>>78883216

>Why would anyone presume that?

If you're part of a secret plot to not only put out a hit on a Maiden, but for the first time in known history "steal" their power without just stabbing and hoping, it's not unreasonable to assume that if the other maidens are known Cinder or whoever she works for could identify them and locate them. And the legend and Oz seems to indicate the Maidens are kind of supposed to be out in the world doing things, hiding in tall towers could be unlikely.

>>78883212

>Or because she was the easiest to find and they knew where and when they could attack her in the middle of nowhere.

Eh, same answer really. There was a reason Amber was the target. Predators pick on the young, the weak, the sick and the elderly.

Its also worth noting that she was inflicting visible damage even without popping Merc and Em's auras.

Could just be that RT decided to ramp up the violence and we'll be seeing Ruby/Pyrrha get bloodied in their fights too, but it could mean that aura isn't effective against magic.
>>
>>78883439
I imagine that there's some sort of forgotten part of the Four Seasons fairy tale, likely one where the Maidens vanquish a great evil. I'm betting that this evil is connected to the Grimm and whoever it is Cinder is answering to, and that the four Maidens need to unite in order to defeat it again.
>>
>>78883424
>Eh, same answer really. There was a reason Amber was the target. Predators pick on the young, the weak, the sick and the elderly.

That is not in any way the same answer.

There is nothing to suggest Amber is weaker, younger, or any less powerful than the three other maidens.

What she was, was identified, alone, and someplace where Cinder's group could attack her.

There are villages in remnant, it's entirely possible there was one nearby. She saw a little girl alone in a wide open area where there were no visible threats or dangers.

The maidens are not hunted like the used to be, their existence is supposed to be a secret. I severely doubt she was expecting to suddenly be assaulted out of nowhere, which is probably also why she didn't use her maiden powers until her hand was forced.

Sun Wukong was incredibly broken also, I don't think Sun has like, half the powers his namesake did.

So Blake can't fully trust Yang because of her experiences with Adam? WHAT experiences? We're never given an explanation of her relationship with Adam! All we ever saw in the Trailer is how they beat up a bunch of robots on a train before Blake decoupled it away from him! Are we really supposed to take that as being shown their relationship fallout?
Why is Ruby yelling to Pyrrha when she's three feet away? Did the writers not have storyboards to show the VAs? Dear lord, the show needs better direction.
Why is Qrow expositing all this info about Yang's mom? Didn't Raven meet with Yang in the post-credits to Season 2? Why couldn't Yang have told him about her figuring out how to track her? And why is she being so vague about the train incident?
Real subtle there, flashing back to Amber when Pyrrha looks at a leaf. Wasn't redundant and obnoxious, nope.
Why is Pyrrha going on about "destiny"? If anything, this should be about a "goal" or "desire" or "purpose"! Hell, they're even saying she's using the word wrong, so why even use the wrong word in the first place?!
How is having Amber's soul supplanted into her supposed to interfere with Pyrrha's "destiny" of being a Auror Sailor Scout~ ~~Power Ranger Huntress? How is this supposed to be such a dilemma to her that she predictably mood swings at a confused, uninformed Jaune?!
Why is Velvet going on about "the battlefield"? She's not Solid Snake, what would she know of being at war? Why couldn't she have just said "in the heat of a fight" and spared the pseudo-philosophy from a scene that was otherwise a fine method to inform Ruby about Merc and Emerald being weird?
Why is Ruby confused by Emerald's appearance, or even managing to see her at the other end of the stadium? Why are they suddenly aquaintances out of nowhere in the first place? Why would the villains care enough to rig a one-sided match between Pyrrha and Nora to assumedly upset Ruby? WHY THE HELL IS MERCURY IN THE GODDAMN STADIUM PICKING A FIGHT WITH HER?!?!?!

Not sure if trolling or dumb.

>Why is Pyrrha going on about "destiny"?
Because she was talking about how she's always felt destined to be something great.

>How is having Amber's soul supplanted into her supposed to interfere with Pyrrha's "destiny"
It isn't. That's why she said the line about suddenly being able to fulfill her destiny in an instant, she is freaking about about an experimental transfer that could very well kill her, drive her insane, or put another person's mind her in body.

>Why is Velvet going on about "the battlefield"? She's not Solid Snake, what would she know of being at war?
Because she is a second year student and they go on real combat missions to clear Grimm out of areas. They have a great deal of experience. Hunters are always at war with the Grimm.

>Why is Ruby confused by Emerald's appearance, or even managing to see her at the other end of the stadium?
Because she was told that Merc's entire team went back to Mistral(?) with him.

>Why are they suddenly aquaintances out of nowhere in the first place?
They aren't. They were shown in chapter 1 to be getting along pretty well after they'd talked during Merc and Pyrrha's fight.

>Why would the villains care enough to rig a one-sided match between Pyrrha and Nora to assumedly upset Ruby?
It's Pyrrha and Penny. It isn't to upset Ruby, it is to cause some scene that will upset the entire crowd and everyone watching elsewhere, empowering the Grimm.

"Show don't tell" is something that people to complain a lot about RWBY, and this sort of makes me wonder if you can get away with it if you use well used implication, which in itself can be powerful if used correctly.

A good example of implication if think would be the end of MGS3, to the point where I don't think Peace Walker and MGSV even needed to be made because MGS3's ending made me think "Yeah, I totally understand how Big Boss could become the man he would later be due to this ending."

What's the difference between something that you need to show, and something you can imply? How can this be applied to RWBY?

You know "show don't tell" doesn't mean that literally you can't just "state facts" to the audience. Additionally, you shouldn't always show if it'll bog down the pacing and take longer to get to what's actually important to the narrative. Hemingway himself compared it to an iceberg. You should hint and leave the impression of much more below.

Blake very briefly explains the history of the White Fang and by extension her involvement in it. She doesn't say exactly how they all changed, just that a new leader took over and their methods became more aggressive. Her tone and the imagery in the scene let you imply what that actually means and how blake feels about it. Christ, it's like you guys have all ready just the one chapter of CR 101 books.

I thought it was pretty clearly implied they've talked more than that, it just wasn't shown.

>One, you're lazy and desperate without a mind of your own.
I'm sorry if this went over your head. It was a playful way of saying "we don't know exactly what merc is up to, it will probably be explained next episode." Clearly, his part of the plan is to intercept and do something to Ruby. No doubt Neo has her own part of the plan to handle. He is risking his alibi because it is likely that whatever they are about to do is the the part of their plan where they go from stealth to loud. After whatever is going to happen happens, they will no longer need to have that alibi.

In order to imply something without saying it, there has to be some other way of giving enough information for the implication to be apparent; i.e. something visual. And that's where RWBY fails, visual storytelling

They repeatedly SAY how badly the faunus are treated, but it's almost never seen going on. If they had shown something, like signs around town saying NO FAUNUS, or separating their seating in the arena, they wouldn't even have to say it and we'd get the message.

Another example, Cinder's plan. There's no indication what the fuck she's trying to pull because they're not giving enough information. It's clear why they wouldn't want to say it up front, but they could show us something- like if her plan is to take down the com towers, show blueprints/maps of them, or if her plan is to assassinate Ozpin or someone, show her spying on her target- some kind of hint as to what she's trying. To their credit, they did it with Penny when she was shown looking over her technical specs, so we can assume that she'll be involved somehow.-and that worked, and it's paying off because it's got most of us pretty hype for the next ep.

Long story short, if you're going to imply something, you need to give enough information for the implication to be made and RWBY just doesn't give enough information, even with the WoR shorts.

Okay, there's a couple different interpretations of the theory. The idea is to make a more immersive story and not bog down the reader (or in this case the watcher) with unnecessary description and exposition which detracts from what you're actually trying to do.

Your analogy is good, that's what Hemingway meant with his "iceberg theory", the author can plainly state few things but do so in a way you can tell and even get the deeper implications there. People just tend to take this as literal creative writing gospel.

As said in >>78884829 you shouldn't always go into immersive detail or full "showing" about every scene or aspect to it. That should be reserved for your most important details, and is dependant on the pacing and rhythm in story already.

If you wanted to be more that way in RWBY you'd probably need more background detail, more focus on subtler facial and vocal expressions. Opportunities for characters to express themselves without literally going "I think" or "I want"... etc

From what folks have said, monty had "plans" that was the exact wording for 10 volumes worth of material and that the three seasons we've seen so far would make 1 "volume". The thing is we don't know the exact details of that, or how much he really fleshed out. Judging by how much scrambling M&K did when they mentioned writing for rwby, I'd wager Monty did not leave much beyond a few major plot points and an outline.

Honestly, I always picked up that the implication from the show (backed up by Blake commenting on the nature of the White Fang becoming more militant - that their methods were apparently working) is that we're past the "NO FAUNUS" signs stage and into slightly more subtle oppression.

Blake makes oblique comments about exploitive practices at SDC, and isn't comfortable "coming out" as a Faunus. Velvet is bullied in school by CDRL (who are 1st years) and nobody does anything about it. Weiss makes her own snarky, slightly racist comments. Faunus apparently feel poorly enough about their lot in life to show up en masse to White Fang rallies and listen to Roman of all people.
>>
Sometimes people don't get that "show not tell" doesn't mean that you can't tell your audience facts.

Telling them basic information about the world, such as Faunus being looked down upon, and then including subtle hints of it such as graffiti or segregation in crowds would do wonders to reinforce their writing.

>>
>>78885187
Personally I like the idea of WoR, but I do have to admit that it is a poorly utilized format since they are either completely moot, or reveal stuff that should have been covered in the actual show.

I think they would be better used to expand on things talked about in the show, but nothing necessary to the plot, so if you don't watch them you aren't missing anything. For example, let's say we have one on Atlus, all the important things that matter about Atlas would needed to be explained in-show, but the WoR for it would be an expansion on that information, unnecessary for your understand of the plot, but if you want to know more then here's something for you.

>>78885187
Yeah, I didn't watch any of the WoR vids until this volume and I felt like I was missing a lot. Even if they wanted to use these shorts as a means for exposition, there is easily a way to work it into the episode.

Look at the the time Pyrrha told the story of the four maidens, it was clearly in the WoR style but worked its way into the episode. If they'd do that more often it wouldn't be as much of a cop-out. It'd be sloppy as hell and not remotely professional, but at least it'd be incorporated

>>78885332
It really is, and it doesn't help that the audio quality is shit too. Now if they had some kind of visual going on it'd distract from the negative qualities a little bit and make those monologues more interesting.

>>78885325

>>78885227

While I partially agree, I also think you're glossing over some things here. We do kind of get the gist of some of those things.

And while I know many people don't like the WoRs, I think they're okay to explain some core setting details which don't really organically come up in the context of the plot. Because of the context of the story, for example, there's no reason to explain the hard mechanics of Aura or Dust - the characters already know all that, and everybody complains about how clunky it was to exposit on Jaune. Do we want to literally pull an anime and have exposition about Semblance and Dust techniques in the middle of the action?

>We don't know the antagonists' plans

We know enough to get the idea, though obviously the exact scope is hidden to make it more dramatic. We've seen from "failed" parts of the plan that Cinder wanted to breach Vale, has done something with the CCT (shown in the series to be an important comms hub) and is drawing the attention of even bigger Grimm. And she's haxored lots of things - as shown by the "queen" sigil reaching as far as Ironwood's scroll and Ozpin's desk.

>we don't know the rules of the superpowers everyone has

They're explained as they come up, and their limitations are shown or hinted at. Or were there specific rules you had in mind?

>we don't know why people are participating in an inter-school fighting competition

They comment a couple times on how the Vytal festival is a big deal, show the prep in Vale for it, mention it's a cultural meeting thing and then Oz gives a speech to all the visiting students about how cool it is to be an individual. And then we see backdrop scrubs wearing the different uniforms hanging around.

WoR should be like concept notes and production details, not exactly necessary but great for fleshing out concepts that don't have time to be in the main episodes.

>we don't know why the Grim are such a threat

Besides being horrible scary monsters which can grow to such scale and power our protagonists can't face them individually? Well, we mention how there always seem to be many of them, or attacks are on the rise. Oobleck reminds everybody Grimm are attracted to negative emotions and while that's an obvious "tell", it's not as easy to show that unless they work in a situation like Breach, except that you kind of need that context to understand why the breach is so dangerous. Combine with Oobleck talking about this in a suburb which was destroyed by Grimm. And we show the Goliaths being REAL fucking tall.

> and we don't know Ozpin and Ironwood's beef beyond "I don't approve of having an entire air fleet over Vale"

You mean besides how they butt heads on strategy and implementation nearly every time the talk? Ozpin lays it out with an analogy to Ironwood even. He's all about gathering information, acting appropriately and not rocking the metaphorical boat, when Ironwood wants his efficient solutions and he wants them now.

That's the main problem with the grimm, we know why they're dangerous, but there has never been a moment to show them actually being a threat to anyone. RWBY/JNPR v Nevermore/Deathstalker and Jaune v Ursa were the only times that grimm really put up any sort of fight, other than that they tend to fold rather easily to the point where they are kind of moot. It also dosen't help that they not only have limited screentime, but are treated like an after thought by the story itself to the point where they were more of an annoyance than anything else in Breach.

Well, if he is the Tin Woodsman and he has no heart, he's probably gonna keep heading in that direction until something bad actually happens with his methods rather than just the implication that he's fucking up. The last episode definitely was another injection of humanizing him - but he's probably gonna stay the course until it all falls down.

>>78885706

Yeah, a large group of Hunters backed by the foremost military power in the world did pretty good. But boy howdy, it sure would have been interesting to see what would have happened if the Breach let in that herd of Goliaths Cinder has attracted now, wouldn't it?

You missed my point though. I was saying that "showing" the emotional component of the Grimm is hard without exposing some civilians to the threat (so it focuses on them) or to otherwise have a character singled out emotionally, but that wouldn't make as much sense unless you say that's how Grimm work.

A big problem with RWBY is not that they don't have enough detail, but that they put far too much where they shouldn't or need to.

Look at the fucking names.
May Zedong, Glynda Goodwitch, Summer Rose, Jaune Arc. All these references to history and literature both old and new, yet none of it has shown real relevance. They jam it full of references and just go "hurrdurr look were so well read."

It's like a more literary counterpart to their (ab)use of anime tropes and shit. Chibi art out of nowhere for no goddamn reason, BANZAIII, and whatever.
>>
>>78885802
>a large group of Hunters backed by the foremost military power in the world
Really, it just seemed like all they needed was Coco and Glynda to mop everything up. Sure, Ironwood's robots could help with crowd control, but still...

As for the Mammoths, we still don't actually know if Cinder's plan is to destroy Vale using them. And even then, doing it in the middle of a tournament where a fuckton of hunters and Ironwood are STILL around? They'd have to be literally indestructible to manage that much of a threat, and yet that'd be the other way around with dramatic tension.

Well the anime shit is kind of weeb, but the creators like some of that stuff and RWBY is kind of it's own web video thing. So they can play with genre conventions if they like. The Japans seem to like it alright.

The character names is a deliberate thematic reference. Both in and out of the story they draw connections with fairytales and mythology, and characters you know from them. And maybe it has meaning, maybe not. I mean, how many people thought the color thing was just a thematic thing and then bam, color nazis.

Eh, Coco used her minigun to great effect in conditions which suited it. As shown in her fight with Emerald, it's not perfect for all conditions.

Glynda fixed stuff up pretty good, but she's supposed to be pretty strong - I mean, she fought with Cinder in the first episode without breaking a sweat and Cinder is apparently pretty good. And the Breach was pretty well contained, there was a team of Hunters on the ground right when it happened and like you said, Atlas robots helped control the crowds.

>As for the Mammoths, we still don't actually know if Cinder's plan is to destroy Vale using them.

Well, we've showcased them getting closer and how fucking huge they are. While probably not literally invincible, they're probably more than the students at the tournament can handle on their own. (The obvious set up is that you need a Maiden or Maidens to solve this problem).

>Then he should've been made into General Ripper, not Harvey fucking Dent.

Pretty sure Ironwood has no heart in the sense that he's very logical and not really into understanding the common man's plight. He thinks about things in terms of military strategy all the time, usually in the context of open war. He's not about relating to people in a fluffy emotional way where they feel better. He just wants to crunch numbers, shoot grimm and bang-boom the day is saved.

Compare with Qrow. Scarecrow has no brain. Qrow knows more than he usually lets on, but most people can't tell so much because he looks like a drunk and a goof.

Right. We know through his interaction with Glynda and his talk with Yang that he's an alright guy, got his "heart" in the right place.

But outwardly he's focused on appearing as a strong, stoic individual. An element in a greater army, as befits what we know of Atlas. Probably why he's keen on large volumes of strong, robotic soldiers forming a phalanx of iron men to guard the world.

Yet his ultimate weapon is a machine that thinks and feels like she's a real girl.

See, this is one of the things RWBY I think actually does imply well. They mention to a big war and kind of talk around it's details and it's fallout, but you know it was a big deal. Then Oz actually talks about how the "bad guys" of that war wanted to control expression and stamp out individualism. And then you learn Grimm are drawn to strong emotions, particularly negative ones. You can kind of draw a picture of maybe how this started and what happened.

"Color Nazi" is a fan name because what else do you call the (presented) obvious villains of the big backstory war who want to control every aspect of your lives?
>>
>>78886390
The nazis are long dead, there's no point in going into an in-depth history lesson about motivations of a party which ceased to exist over eighty years ago when the episodes are already crammed as they are.

>>78886192
>As shown in her fight with Emerald, it's not perfect for all conditions.

Those were one-on-one fights with other humans. These are giant mammoth demons. While Coco needed to be worfed, it still doesn't change how overpowered she is. It's the same problem as Ironwood's fleet: Why are they in Vale when they could just be obliterating the Grimm from afar?

>While probably not literally invincible, they're probably more than the students at the tournament can handle on their own

And yet we've been shown that there's more than just students here, with Glynda, Ironwood, Penny, Qrow, etc in the area waiting for a reason to be around other than angsting at each other.

>The obvious set up is that you need a Maiden or Maidens to solve this problem

What difference would Storm from X-Men make against a bunch of giant mammoth demons? Flip them over? Fly them out?

Ozpin is the Wizard, and Glynda is Glinda the Good Witch. That could mean a lot of things, also dependant on if we're taking more inspiration from the Film or the book series.
