My example is: Fates was supposed to be a loose remake of the last promise. Kelik was so edgy that he split the game into three routes. He was removed before he could do any more damage. Xander was based on sigfried, and was supposed to betray you on what was turned into BR 25(?) Unless he achieved an A support with the avatar. He was made younger to make his S support with Tamiko less messed up. Unfortunately, they ended up taking away all the great characters. The Xander/Ryoma situation at the start in which you used a Prepromote to take on another prepromote when your army is at a really low level is based off of Levion and Howard. Fortunately, all these crazy changes resulted in turning a fantastic story into an even better one!
