Kagutsuchi | Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne »

The silver moon inside the Vortex World that results after The Conception in Tokyo. The moon goes through 16 phases, starting at "NEW", then taking 8 phases to reach "FULL". It then takes another 8 phases to reach "NEW" again. The fourth stage between each of these is refered to as "HALF".

Kagutsuchi advances one phase for every five seconds on the field and every second on the World Map. It only advances if your character is moving. Standing in place causes the moon to stop cycling, seemingly to keep you from easily reaching useful phases.

More importantly, Kagutsuchi's real sole purpose is to empower the one who will oversee Creation. It will allow a lifeform of its choosing to determine the course of the new world. Kagutsuchi rises, matures and falls in countless other places, in billions of other worlds. That is the way of Amala, as determined by the Great Will.

Fredric Paul’s article touched off a discussion with some colleagues of mine, who agreed that Google abuses has become careless thanks to its “monopoly” with AdSense by (among other things) callously dropping AdSense participants for alleged click fraud without a reasonable appeals policy. A request for an explanation fell on deaf ears, and my colleague was left with the impression that Google “would have been more likely to work with me,” if it weren’t in such a strong position.
