People will always be unhappy if you change something they like. There are plenty of bands and artists out there resented by their fans for changing, when in fact all they did was mature. Any changes you make to Mardek will be a sign of your own personal growth.

The main complaint I'm sure you'll hear is about the changes to the fighting system. The way characters fill up their enemies with light instead of destroying them with violence. You are taking a bold, truly original move no RPG I've yet played has tried. Final Fantasy wouldn't dare go down such a different road for the sake of creativity.

This move towards a more philosophical game has me excited. I can remember the exact moment I fell in love in love with Mardek. It wasn't when I was killing the dragon or slaughtering bandits. It was when Mardek, Deugen, and Emily started discussing the morality of their actions in the guard. "I have always wanted to play a game like this," I thought.

In short, keep up the good work Pseudo! You are one of the best game developers out there, and I'm sure the end result of your efforts will be amazing.

I didn't know Heiveldboy, but I know a lot about living with Asperger's, and he has all the classic symptoms. Argumentative, finds interacting with people challenging, and highly interested in niche topics.
Knowing Pseudo, I can completely see why these traits would clash with his own sensitive personality. We (as in us Aspie's) find it hard to tell how what we say will affect someone. We think much more in logic than emotion, and often have to be told directly what others seem able to grasp from body language or some other wizardry.
Learning all the social norms is often a trial and error process. It pains me to think of the mistakes I made, but at least they allowed me to mature.
Heiveldboy is an adult. If someone takes just a few minutes to explain, using as much logic as possible, how he is hurting Pseudo and the community it is only fair to expect better behavior. For this community to work everyone needs to get along, and if he considerably disrupts the peace his Asperger's shouldn't earn him special treatment.
