Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is an archive on what questions were asked and the rules that needed to be followed on the page "Len'en Wiki:Interview with JynX (2015)". People could've also asked questions on this journal in the Len'en Project deviantArt group.

Rules and Guidelines

  1. Consider basic etiquette. Any questions that are NSFW, offensive or otherwise objectionable will not be forwarded.
  2. No "what do you think of this video/drawing/whatever" questions. JynX's opinions tend to be expressed in a very bare-bones way, usually not more than "Wow, that's really cute" or similar. While fanart surely is appreciated, being smothering with it or other things just isn't the way to go.
  3. No joke/troll questions. That includes, but is not limited to, questions such as "What is the meaning of life" or "What would you do for a Klondike bar". Those just aren't beneficial to anyone at all.
  4. No "Will x appear in y?" questions. Seriously, just wait until the full version comes out. You can wait until October/November.

Aside from that, I may have forgotten about a few pointers, but most stuff should be common sense. If your question(s) is/have not been answered, then by all means, contact me so I can explain why. --Popfan (talk)

  • Hi Jynx! In Touhou, we all know that because of the spellcard rules actual life-threats are kept to a minimum, and it's very hard to hear of people in the Touhou canon dying. How is the violence in Mugenri? Is there something similar to spell card rules in Len'en, or would the youkai kill humans or the protagonists without any restraint? - 02:13, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Where does Stage 3 of Evanescent Existance take place? 13:08, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Souko Shirami mentions they are connected to a god. What kind of god exactly? Rando (talk) 20:16, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Could you explain in more detail as to how the outsiders of EE were able to gain their power? Do people from the Outside World also have abilities that are excepted to only be seen in a spiritual world? ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 14:06, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
