That took much longer than expected…

The guide I had wanted to write for my class in Kritika SEA took like…5 hours to write. 7.1k words. Longer than the term paper I wrote for the JS1101E module, and I wrote it in one sitting.

Then again, it’s a lot easier when one doesn’t have to cite anything and is writing about someone one’s fairly familiar with. Ah well, it’s done at last~ Hopefully it helps other DCs like me, though my in-game time will definitely dip as I attend to real life matters.

Lasers, Gravwells and Spacetime: Roe’s Primer to Kritika SEA’s Dimension Controller

 

Introduction

Given the lack of discussion boards set up by Playpark as of this writing, it is difficult for the same community that once flourished in games like MapleSEA and other MMOs to develop if they lack somewhere to congregate. Although a subreddit does exist, it is better suited for Q&A or media sharing compared to the development of an actual community around the game.

In this figurative Black desert, it is also difficult for one to write a class guide/primer and have it stickied/pinned to the top of a discussion page. Nevertheless, as the community of the game seems to be growing rapidly, it seems appropriate to contribute one of the first English guides for a class that I enjoy playing: the Dimension Controller. I hope that this guide will be helpful to new and intermediate players alike, giving them helpful tips for a rarely played class.

A caveat regarding module reviews

For some reason, I’m seeing a spike in views for my module reviews, but not from the country I expected (Singapore), but from overseas locations (primarily the U.S). I should probably add that the modules being reviewed are of a certain national university of stairs over in Singapore, so although the codes used may overlap with other module codes used by U.S universities, I have not taken those modules as I’m not enrolled in a U.S university.

That said, I had been planning to do some module reviews for some time but never really got around to doing so until after I was finished with MUN and the drum covers I had wanted to record. I’ll probably finish the other module reviews before school begins again, but for now having completed five modules should be enough.

Up next will be a guide for Kritika Online SEA, then I’ll be away for the next couple of weeks. Expect much less activity during then.

Review of GET1026 – Effective Reasoning

For other reviewed modules, please check here.

(Alternate title: GET1026 – Dissect, Analyze, Enjoy!)

Introduction

Effective reasoning…a rather ambiguous term. I was originally bidding for another module, but was outbidded by exactly one point (I bidded 99, the lowest bid that got the module was 100 -.-). So out of the available modules that could fit within my timetable, this seemed the most interesting. At the very least (I thought), it would be helpful if one was writing an essay to ensure that there were no logical flaws.

Review of GET1008: Public Speaking and Critical Reasoning

For other reviewed modules, please check here.

(Alternate title: GET1008 – An Essay Read Aloud Does Not A Speech Make)

Introduction

Not everyone is a born speaker, and many do experience stage fright or nervousness when speaking in front of a large group of people. Some try to improve themselves, and seek out modules that may help them overcome their fear of public speaking. This module is fairly popular among those that have this objective, so it can be somewhat difficult to get unless one has ample reserves of bidding points.

Review of PS2238 – International Politics of Northeast Asia

For other reviewed modules, please check here.

(Alternate title: PS2238 – Japan and South Korea being wary of China, who is economically critical but militarily dominant, who has a long-running frozen conflict with Taiwan, who is reliant on the U.S for its security guarantees, who is trying to keep everyone on in the region together and not doing anything stupid, with the exception of North Korea, who is in danger of biting the hand that feeds it. It’s all fun and games until somebody loses an arm).

Introduction

Being advised that an introductory module was not representative of higher level modules, I took this module in my first semester as well to get a taste of what a ‘real’ PS module felt like. It was an interesting experience, one quite different from the PS1101E module. That said, I also was interested in China, North & South Korea as well as Japan, so the content was something that attracted me to the module.
