    Thumbs Up Road of the Dark Mage- A Negima VN

    Hi~
    Since this is a negima sub-forum, I figured i'd post this here.

    At request of some fans on a forum far, far away, I wanted to make a Visual Novel based on the story of Eva from Negima. It features her past as a vampire and her struggle to survive in both the old world and the magic world, in order to take her revenge upon the one who turned her into a vampire. It takes place from her 10th birthday until her entrance into Mahora. Learn the unofficial story of her tragic life on the path to becoming the most powerful dark mage in history. The story is released in parts and will be updated maybe once or twice a month. The file size is only large due to music and images (for future chapters) sizes , but that'll shrink or at least remain near the same. It's non-h and pretty interesting, and the story is only starting.

    Files can be found here: http://twilightdreamsscans.darkbb.co...-mage-t270.htm

    Registration not needed, but if you have any requests, questions or opinions post them here or on the site above

    You are aware of the fact that this is copyright infrigement right?
    You could get yourself thoroughly sued by doing this.
    What you are doing now is attempting to tamper with the storyline and plot of the series by introducing foreign elements to it.
    You're playing with fire here man, and when you play with fire you get burned. Just some friendly advice from a fellow forumer.

    ^WTF man? ever heard the term fanfic?
    there's probably a definition for it somewhere on some encyclopedia but I can't possibly be bothered to look it up and link it..
    and besides, it's not like Twi is selling his work for cash

    I can assure you that I know what I'm talking about.
    If any of the copyright holders or the creator of the series himself wishes to take action against him then it is his right to do so.

    By creating a game which may actually be a success among the fans of the manga/anime he could create unwanted attention to this forum. Still think I'm overreacting?

    Re: Road of the Dark Mage- A Negima VN

    knowing that MH is 'known' for hosting Raws and scanlations? ... yeah, your overreacting big time ...

    futhermore ... as long as Twi doesn't try to sell it as canon is nothing other than FanFic / Doujinshi, which was KA's starting point (and thus, likely to very deliberately overlook)

    Re: Road of the Dark Mage- A Negima VN

    Um.....Copyright infringment is most upon selling this work, which I don't plan on doing, and as for the attention, there are many doujinshi for series out and considering that MH host scantalated manga.....yeah. In addition if anything happens they will ask MH can't be held responsible, at the most they'll be asked to remove the post and probably send me a C&D letter....

    As for the art work I'm just browsing online finding pictures and had some stuff over the last few years left on my laptop.

    I made an early negima VN when I first started, but......It's not my best work
    I'll link it to my home gamepage

    Legal or not, I do like it!
    How many more vols do you expect it to be?
    You're not paid to think;
    A mindless worker is a happy worker,
    so shut up and do your job.

    Technically, copyright holders could so over fanfiction as well if they wanted to.

    Maybe, but most don't usually bother unless you try to make money off their work

    Also after reading the newest chapter I'm reminded, please help keep wikia up to date

    Seriously, there's not much need to talk about copyright infraction here.

    This is "just another doujin work". It's "illegal", yes. But at the same time there aren't many mangaka and companies in Japan who mind these "illegal fanworks". Otherwise almost all major doujin conventions in Japan would shrink to laughable sizes.

    Doujin is usually an accepted form of fan-expression, and there's plenty unofficial VN games for a multitude of works. (Heck, they even get sold for money at those events.)

    If the creator gets a C&D or gets sued I'm sure it'll be taken down. Until then it's perfectly fine to have it up. Please stop the copyright talk and get to discussing the fanwork in question.

    Though this fits better into the fanfics&stories area thus I'm moving it there.


    @Twi: You got my respect for putting so much effort into this unknown history of our favorite Negima Vampire =)
