  1. Alright so, I think I've solved some of the main mysteries regarding the series around the world of union cross but I'm no expert so if I missed anything or you could add to the discussion that would be great, but I really think I'm on to something here So, what we know so far, the world of Union Cross is a virtual replica of the world of Chi which is the actual story of the events that led to the keyblade war of old then after the world perished and was reborn the the data of what happened was used in creating a virtual copy which would be used to study that history and how to prevent that scenario from happening. After the events of the war take place in Union Cross we start meeting new characters that weren't present in the original Chi, the first one we want to focus on is Ventus, for obvious reasons, we know he comes from a time that's definitely after the keyblade war, after the worlds were reborn and separated so how is he back? another charater we meet is Lauriam the original Marluxia(and just now we were introduced to Erlena who later becomes Larxene) what's important about Lauriam is that he looks noticeably younger than Marluxia (we know people may change a bit when they become nobodies but nothing as drastic as aging 10 years) so I believe Lauriam is the key to connecting Ventus to this era, we have just been looking at it backwards. It is not that Ven traveled back in time, but the world of Union Cross was created much much later, specifically around the Birth By Sleep Era, there is a lot of evidence that leads me to believe this is the case like This would place Lauriam in the correct age range (he was probably born around the same time as Isa & Lea, whose younger selves we met during BBS) Ventus is shown in his BBS clothes except missing one thing, his should pauldron which he uses to summon his armor, but! there is one instance during Birth By Sleep where he was seen wearing no pauldron, during his time training with Master Xehanort to extract his darkness before his heart is fractured and falls in a coma This takes place during a flashback and there is an unespecified amount of time that takes place during the gap between Ventus' heart being fractued and his arrival to the land of departure, it was shown that Xehanort was ready to give up on Ven waking up and took him to destiny islands to die I propose that during that gap Ven was used to experiment and research the new virtual world that was developed, but who created that world? Xehanort in an attempt to unlock the secrets of the past? No, he has never been shown to be know about creating that sort of thing, but we know of another character who has done just that, recreate worlds in the datascape and transport people there without them even knowing it I believe Ansem the Wise created the world of Union Cross, true he has never been shown talking about the keyblade war but I think he is more connected to the past than we know, first of all, he is ansem the WISE, king of radiant garden, so it would make sense for a wise king to know about the events of the past that regular people ignore, even Kairi's grandma knew a bit about how the world ended and was reborn so it is confirmed that knowledge of the old world reached radiant garden at least in some form So, Ansem the Wise managed to get a hold of Ven's body for a while, scanned him and added him to the world, maybe he thought that as a keyblade weilder his heart would help his simulated world be more accurate Here's where I must say I DO NOT CLAIM TO KNOW HOW ANSEM THE WISE GOT A HOLD OF VENTUS, maybe Xehanort, having his own desire to know about the past allowed the experiment to take place and after he Ventus could no longer be useful, that's when he took him to destiny islands (Xehanort would obviously have to hide his identity since when Ansem find the amnesiac Terra-nort and hears his name he does not react to it, and it would make sense, Xehanort wouldn't like others, like Eraqus, discover what he was doing) Earlier I said Ansem the Wise (ATW) may know more about the world before the keyblade war than he lets on and that there is something else that connects him to the past, something that I noticed long ago but couldn't find a solid reason for it to exist in such detail During Kingdom Hearts we not only learn about ATW's knowledge of creating virtual worlds and encoding real world objects into data, we learn that the old mansion in twilight town serves as his hideout/research lab but if we explore the place and pay attention to it's surroundings we can find something peculiar, all around the mansions we see iconography of something very important, we see images and sculptures of unicorns adorning the whole placethe unicorn being the symbol of one of the foretellers in chi/union cross So what if ATW in his research over the years found this information and tried to learn more about this old world (maybe he believed Ira as the Leader would be the one who held the answers so he aligned himself with his union) Skipping over a bit, during the new cutscene added to Re:Coded we see Maleficent talk about the similarities to between the datascape and the tome of prophecies and a few weeks ago we discovered that the Maleficent in UC is not a virtual character but the true maleficent, whose heart traveled back in time after being defeated in KH1 and is trying to change her fate, but instead of traveling to her true past she was (somehow) trapped in a virtual past by a hooded character refering to himself only as "darkness", since they don't want her interfering with the future and the plans they have, this had led many to believe this "darkness" to be Xehanort since he knows about time travel and has big plans in store, but I don't think that's the case, I believe, again this darkness is our man, Ansem the Wise, he also has been conducting research all this time and would want an uncontrolled outside force to interfere with it, and taking care of the easy one, the figure calls himself "Darkness", what other name has Ansem given himself? DiZ: DARKNESS in Zero So Ansem as the administrator of this virtual world would have no problem in controlling anyone inside his world/software this would help his research to continue on. And I believe this research, this knowledge of the past studied to prevent a future disaster is the very same research that has been alluded by him all these games, the very same research that he hid inside Sora while he was asleep, the knowledge to finding yourself or your lost friends in your hour of need Back to Maleficent, we know she traveled back in time and I stated how the world of UC was created around the time of BBS, but we don't really know how long it lasted so it could be that, maleficent traveled back to the time of BBS trying to undo her defeat during that game, but was trapped in a virtual world by Ansem and during the time she spent there the other events of BBS took place and then the betrayl by Xehanort and the other apprentices, when ATW was betrayed and sent to the realm of darkness that's when Maleficent, without Ansem eye on her, was able to escape and return to the real world, to the time of KH2 So in conclusion Ansem the wise wanted to know more about the keyblade war in order to prevent it and protect all worlds, using the knowledge he gathered over the years he created a virtual simulation of that era (probably thanks to Xehanort's own plans) added Ventus in an effort to enhance the world by adding a true keyblade weilder, Lauriam and Erlena were also added (we could think of them as a sort of Beta testers), they might've lost their hearts at the end of the simulation in whatever way that happens, at the same time Maleficent is trapped in the virtual world by Ansem to prevent her from changing history, the simulation continues, Xehanort takes Ventus back to destiny islands and the events of the games take place from BBS to KH2 by this time ATW has been sent to the realm of darkness and returned as DiZ, maleficent escapes the datascape (because UC is just another datascape, that's why the world of the journal in Re:Coded seems familiary to her) and Ansem after experiencing all he has, and gaining all that knowledge over the years, takes his data and places it inside a sleeping Sora, hoping that somehow the experiences of the past help save the future PHEW.... so that's it. I know some parts are out of order but im writting all this from ideas I had on my head and giving it structure as I go on, I hope you found in interesting and bring forth your own ideas about what you think I got right or not so right Thans for reading! May your heart be your guiding key

    Our Story

    [This is the first half of the Union cross reviews (I am calling this unchained because it was once called unchained). This will display each perspective in a way. This review focuses more on gameplay and some story with my character. The other being mostly story in general in the perspective of some characters. Luckily, there isn't many heavy spoilers. ] - - - - - - - - - - - - In the same universe, we shift to another form of perspective. We follow the player (AKA You and me, the audience). We travel to different worlds to gather lux and uncover some truths of our role and the choice we make that effects our lives forever. That's as far as I could go to avoid spoilers -- We focus on gameplay for this review. This is probably the least favorite game in terms of gameplay. This is a personification of repetitive for many who are salty about this title. Like how I feel about the DS titles, I understand why people didn't want to play the game. However, the major draw was the events that occurred in this title (aka story). That will be explained in the next review. You play as....however you want to look at it: yourself or your OC [ROFL] They are simply called "the player". You may call it your OC or yourself, but it is it's own person. I think it would've been cool if they let player have their choices. But I understand why they went to where they did because there is a a major event that was important lore of the series. The only choice you decide that slightly effects the story is your choice in joining one of the five unions: Vulpes, Leopardus, Ursus, Unicornis, and Anguis. Continuing on gameplay, it is a gacha game. In other words, in details as such: you pay to win. People complain about the repetitive gameplay, but the fact you pay to win is the final straw for many. In combat, it is turned based in support of medals inserted in slots for your keyblades. You get creative with certain medals with abilities and attacks and placement with magic, speed, and/or power that align with light and darkness (upright and reverse). Making your medals stronger in the process the only way for you to progress missions and leveling up your character. So whenever they introduce a new medal, you either have to raise some jewels in game for awhile and/or pay for the amount of jewels you want. So, the biggest issue this game suffers in terms of keeping people in is the gamble of getting the medals they advertise (that itself explains what I mean by pay to win). Then there is the story updates. This was a struggle simply because not only do we have to wait monthly, but we are behind from Japan If you do not want to play the game itself and waiting for the updates, I highly recommend you seek out the updates on Japan's version. The community does a really good job keeping an eye out for updates from Japan's updates (translations and all). The fact they have it way ahead of us is a reasonable reason to not play the game. However, I enjoy waking up every morning to grab me some daily login jewels and do my daily missions. I feel like it will be sad to see it gone when the time comes for it's end, whenever that may be. I joined this game because I enjoy seeing myself being part of the lore (the self insert excuse, I know, go ahead and cringe LOL). I've been with it since the it's release in the U.S., about 2-3 years. Thsee myself progress since the beginning is almost wild. I even chose my Union from, dare I say, what my heart told me...seriously no joke. I am not someone who is not number one in the ranks. But I enjoy some missions and the story updates. In case you ask, I am in the Union Vulpes. I am proud to be in this Union for as long as I have. I look forward to where this leads. [ARTIST NOTE] So, yes, this is yours truly. I was gonna make the outfit somewhat similar to the universe....but I change outfits once in awhile so I do not have a full on particular outfit that works for me solely in the game. If they have an outfit similar to this, then this is as close as I'll get. LOL I actually almost considered doing two for the default designs of the player character. However, I felt that would be more work. So I just added myself...at least for this project. If I had a chance to sells books of my project, then doing the default designs sounded reasonable to do LOL As you know, this is an exact background as my previous piece. However, in terms of the contrast, you can definitely notice that this is more saturated than the last one which I made it more soft and foggy. I simply made it like because they both have different contracts and whole shabang. Of course, since I am in this timeline, I added Chirithy and the Starlight Keyblade. Not much else to say honestly I also wasn't originally going to add this to the collection. But if I made my own book of titles in the Kingdom Hearts series, I might as well lay my own bit to it. That and the player character happens to somewhat have SOME importance.

    The New Divide

    (This is the second half of the Union Cross title that is mostly story based) (THIS IS A HEADS UP: THIS STORY IS NOT FINISHED! ALL I KNOW IS THAT THERE ARE A COUPLE OF CHARACTERS THAT ARE, IN A WAY, RELEVANT TO THE OVERALL PLOT. THE THOUGHTS I HAVE AT THE MOMENT ARE ONLY WHAT WAS AVAILABLE AT THE TIME. SO PLEASE KEEP THAT IN MIND AND TAKE THIS AS A GRAIN OF SALT.) (I WILL NOT SPOIL THE MAJOR STORY ELEMENTS....except for one. I want to point out a personal feeling of a missed opportunity in one of the recent updates while applying my thoughts on Nomura's way of thinking) (Lastly, I don't what else to title this aside form calling it Union Cross LOL So, I guess you can thank Linkin Park for that LOL) --- We go to the next chapter of this timeline. We follow a new group of leaders (The Leader of the Dandelions) after the tragic event that occurred. They try to find ways to prevent their own unions from remembering the event while trying to keep the darkness at bay. --- This is probably going to be the hardest to describe the story, as mentioned, because it is not finished (I don't know how long it'll take for them to actually finish the game's story). All I could do is just express how I feel what I have so far. Because it is a more current story, I felt like I would end up being more surprised whenever there's a new update. The major draw for this title's story was the fact this takes place about 100 years before the events of birth by sleep. This timeline held an important event that became the seed to drive someone to motivation later in the series. What was surprising, however, was the fact that each update we had made one thing clear: it is becoming canon to the lore of the series. If you scream out saying, "why are they adding canon story elements to a mobile game?", then you are right to ask that. Because they try to make it connect to the overall plot of the series, it leaves everyone [who has not caught on to the story] really confused. I cannot say as such on whether or not this will directly connect to KH3 (because KH3 is not out yet nor is this story finish will not be finished by the time KH3 releases). I highly recommend you all to at least check out the plot of this title yourselves before you play KH3, just in case (since we learned there were a couple of characters that are actually important in the series). ((((That being said, I want to address my thoughts on this particular update. I will not say the names of the characters, but I will talk about my thoughts on this update as of is post. So, we are introduced to a couple of certain characters (a guy and a girl). Via rough translations, the guy was looking for his sibling or her sister. Because of the strange translations, we couldn't point whose sister they speak of. This leaves a lot of people speculating and concluding who they feel is the right translation. Turns out, on the next update, it was confirmed to be the guy's sibling. I want to mention that this guy and the girl are actually important characters and I know those characters. I wanted to know more about them and I am getting it. However, I feel is update was a missed opportunity and an example of how Nomura writes his story in Kingdom Hearts. I personally wanted the girl to have s sibling because of her character later n the series and the motivation behind it would've made sense. However, I feel like they had the guy having the sibling because I feel it is a way for Nomura to do everything in his power to make sure it is unpredictable, to which the series is known for. While I do enjoy the unknown future of the story and not know what happens next, I feel that would've been a better motivation for that girl then the guy. Of course, because it is unpredictable, maybe Nomura had something up his sleeve. I actually look forward to it!)))) I really don't have much else to say....simply because, again, this story is not finished. How I feel on what we have so far is honestly interesting. I like seeing what my character had to go through. Kinda seeing myself through these situations at the time is really awesome to see (then again, I am bit bias LOL) [ARTIST NOTES] This was, by the far, the hardest to come up with a concept. As mentioned many time, the story was not finished. So, it was hard to decide the background when it is not the full product. I originally was gonna draw based on KH3. However, due to where it is set, I had to stick with it. I know it is the same background 3 times in a row. The color palettes for the background and atmosphere I try my best to make as different as I can. (I got one more game to cover as of this post! We are getting really close! PLEASE STAY TUNED!!)

  4. Hey y'all how's it going. The reason why I'm created this discussion is because I was wondering if there's anybody looking to join a team? If you are than you can join my team call "Black Panther." So far I only have one member in my party but I don't know it will last. Anyway, if there's anybody who feels lonely or needs help to form a party and go on missions to get new 100x jewels or hasn't gotten any new members yet than you can join my team. Everyone is welcome to join my party. Whether you're higher level or a lower level it doesn't matter because we can all help each other to go on Union Cross missions together and help each other to get new 30x or 100x jewels. Heck if you want you can just join my team so you won't feel lonely. I'm totally okay having members who don't want to feel left out, especially new players who just started playing Union x. My party may not be special but I'm open to have anyone on my team. If you join my party we can talk about a lot of stuffs like movies, TV series, novels, manga, anime, video games, and of course Kingdom Hearts! So if there's any old or new players looking to join a team feel free you join my party. My team is call Black Panther and I'm from the Vulpeus Union. My Avatar's name is Bronz. If you guys have any questions please reply or message me okay. Peace!
  5. I couldn't find another post about this so I hope I'm not repeating a topic already discussed. And I hope I'm not stating something that was really obvious to everyone else. Also if you are not up to date on the Union Cross NA storyline then look away now to avoid spoilers. I was going through a list of all currently known Keyblade Masters in my head the other day (as you do) when I suddenly realised something that I'd never thought about before. Ventus is a Keyblade Master! Probably, anyway. How is he a Keyblade Master, do you ask? Because in Union Cross he appears as one of the new Union Leaders chosen by the Master of Masters to replace the Foretellers (who are also Keyblade Masters) after they meet their end in the Keyblade War. And when Master Ava first tells Ephemer that he has been chosen to replace her as another one of the new Union Leaders he indicates that this also means he has been made a Master. Therefore if Ephemer has become a Master then we can assume that the other new Union Leaders are also Masters, including Ven. So if Ven is a Keyblade Master then that means - assuming he is one and the same as Ven in Birth By Sleep where he appears slightly older - that the whole time he was training with Aqua and Terra and sharing their dream of becoming Keyblade Masters, he was already a Keyblade Master but just didn't know it. I think this is a pretty interesting realisation when you consider that he is not only younger than Terra and Aqua by a few years (in appearance anyway as we don't actually know how old he is) but he is also weaker than them. It also means that Terra is the only one of the three to have not yet obtained the title of Master despite appearing to be the oldest. That would make him really depressed if he found out! On a slightly different note, why do you think Ven was chosen by the Master of Masters for this role? He says so himself that he's not particularly good at anything and never in the top ranks. He doesn't really seem to be a natural leader either. My guess is that he was chosen for his strong resistance to darkness. Though I also wonder if it's because the Master of Masters knew what lay in his future? Please share your thoughts!

  7. I got bored recently and drew up custom Keyblades for the 5 newly appointed Union Leaders. Then... the recent story update sorta put a wrench to that so I had to include Lauriam's. Note: These were all made for fun and based on aesthetics alone so they may or may not reflect their wielders. Especially Lauriam's since we don't know if he has a Keyblade or not during Union Cross.
  8. If you don't want to get spoiled by the latest story advancements in the JP version of KHUX, then stop reading. There's some interesting little details I've noticed about the latest story advancements with Lauriam (Marluxia's Somebody) and Strelitzia. Here's what we know for sure: Strelitzia was killed by someone. And Lauriam showed up at the Keyblade Graveyard as the last Dandelion Union Leader. The general consensus is that Lauriam is who killed Strelitzia, but we don't know that for sure. Many people say it could've been Blaine or that it could've been someone completely unrelated who's watching from behind the scenes who then told Ventus he was a Dandelion Union Leader, when he actually wasn't. I've noticed an interesting detail that might put to rest these theories and will further validate the general consensus of the murderer being Lauriam. There are people getting upset about the fact that Marluxia's Somebody is in this game because it means that he's a Keyblade wielder. He's a Dandelion Union Leader, which means he has a Keyblade, right? Wrong. Maybe he was never able to summon a Keyblade and become a Dandelion or even a Union member, he was just an ordinary resident of Daybreak Town, so he killed Strelitzia and took her place to force himself into the Dandelions to try and become a Keyblade wielder. Assuming he's the one who killed her. "The Keyblade's power-- how I've longed to make it my own." - Marluxia in Re:Chain of Memories Another reason people say that he is a Keyblade wielder is because of the noise of the weapon that killed Strelitzia. People are saying it's the typical noise you hear from a Keyblade slash. And this brings me to my point. The small, but interesting detail I've noticed. That is not the Keyblade slash noise. Listen to it closely. Sound familiar? Compare it to this. And another interesting thing I've noticed is that the hairclip on Strelitzia's hair is the roman numeral for the number 11. Marluxia is the number 11 in Organization XIII. Nomura warned us all this time. (Source for the hairclip info.)
  9. Have you guys tried Union Cross yet? If yes, have this happen to you all? In "Begin Now", I was going where the Raid Boss is, and when participating in the fight, I keep getting a Connection Error right in the middle of the fight. Did this happen to you all? Edit: I tried again. And I can confirm that sometimes the Connection Error could happen?
  10. In celebration of Union X at PAX East, Fantasia Mickey B (Mickey&Brooms) has been added to Unchained χ! Every player receives a Fantasia Mickey B for free upon log in. Fantasia Mickey B allows one to add a Special Attack Orb to any medal 3 Stars or higher, which means one can max out a Medal's Special Attack, allowing you to utilize it's full potential, and adding to your Nova level! Unlike the Japan version of Unchained χ, however, you cannot evolve Fantasia Mickey A into Fantasia Mickey B as of yet. Are you excited for the addition of this medal?
