Okay, guys, I need you to weigh in on this.
My idea for a change to the main character of Starfire, my medieval fantasy manga. If you recall, her name is Cassandra, a dark elf swordswoman that wields the ancient sentient blade Starfire.
This a bit of character change, not aesthetically or plot-wise... I wanted to make her deaf. She would communicate through hand signs or telepathically through Starfire.
Now my co-creator, who shall be referred to only by his nickname (Fluffers) says this is a stupid idea because, apparently, it's a stupid idea and never been done before. He says no one will like it- and we have a bit of a bet on. If people like it, I get a free chain sword. If no one likes it, I have to buy him lunch for a month.
SO WEIGH IN! NAOW! EITHER WAY, JUST LET ME KNOW!
