Rename

I propose we rename this article to "Red samurai", since "Hachiro's creation" could really refer to Evernow or any character in it instead of just one. -Kon (talk) 00:55, 31 October 2015 (EDT)

  • Completely agree. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:34, 31 October 2015 (EDT)
    • I agree, and I think the subject/headline text needs to be revised to note the purpose of the character was to deliver Hachiro's message about saving the Master of Time and Space, if this is the character I'm thinking of.--MiamiVolts (talk) 09:09, 31 October 2015 (EDT)

Construct definition/origin

Is the term construct understandable in and of itself, or should we add a note linking to something like Wikipedia:Construct (Dungeons & Dragons)?--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:54, 28 November 2015 (EST)

I don't play D&D and I understood it off the bat. A construct is something that is made, and that applies to Hachiro's creations. -Kon (talk) 18:01, 28 November 2015 (EST)
Same for me--I also don't play D&D and I understood it--"construct" originally from "construction". The D&D article on Wikipedia is simply the best article I've found on Wikipedia that explains it as it relates to games as "either animated objects, or any artificially constructed creature". I do realize D&D is a tabletop game whereas Evernow is a virtual reality.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:24, 28 November 2015 (EST)
I understood it fine. A link isn't a bad idea though. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:37, 29 November 2015 (EST)
I've added a simple note for now for clarity, not mentioning D&D, which I'm thinking is good enough. Since I don't recall a direct reference to D&D related to the term "construct" in the show's episodes, I'm not sure how to properly do a link here to the D&D construct article on Wikipedia (if one can or should be done)... there is that big dragon on the outside of the dojo building, but I'm not thinking it counts as a D&D dragon...--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:00, 29 November 2015 (EST)
This wiki's article on Dungeons & Dragons notes references from both "Hiro's blog" (which is currently offline) and the Saving Charlie novel, but I don't recall the term construct being used for either. I've found the term "construct" at wiktionary:construct#Noun as meaning "something constructed from parts", and one of the examples given is "Loops and conditional statements are constructs in computer programming." I think that may be a close enough link that's non-speculative. Thoughts?--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:00, 29 November 2015 (EST)
The term "construct" is used outside of Dungeons and Dragons, so it's not necessarily a reference to D&D. I don't think there needs to be a link to D&D or anything else. I think it's sufficient to say that the term likely refers to being artificially constructed. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:41, 29 November 2015 (EST)
