As a bonus, here's the song in english version: http://puu.sh/70SjX

Feel free to replace the mp3 with the one contained in the map. Although for this one I think youll need to use +10 local offset

Big thanks to Verdisphena for helping with hitsounds!
And thanks to Sieg, mancuso and kazukisinx for their guest diffs!
And New Combos mods are more than welcome (Cause I suck at them)

So, since I think that I should do this, here's a list of every player that play tested this map and gave me their input, and since most of them have gave me some suggestions some way or another (I won't go into details about exactly who suggested/commented what cause there's too many, and in case that they didn't gave any suggestion, I could still see where they missed to readjust the design), so I guess some credits should go to them, and since the majority of them won't post in this thread, I guess this space is right.

Innocent Key
Ignacio (althought banned now)
Deus Ex
Innocent Steps
AND many more that I have forgotten! If you are one of these people that I forgot, don't hesitate to ask me to add you in this list!


Supuestamente, Xanandra era una mujer muy hermosa de hace mucho tiempo ya, tenía una sonrisa que podía alegrar a cualquiera, podía ver siempre lo mejor de cada uno, era amada por todos y era la prometida de un joven príncipe.

Un día, una vieja bruja invocó un hechizo sobre ella por envidia, y fue así que Xanandra empezó a ver cosas no estaban ahí, empezó a volverse loca, empezó a alejarse de todos sus seres queridos, hasta que finalmente se aisló de todo el mundo, ya que ella ya no soportaba seguir viendo las cosas que ella veía, y lentamente pero seguro, empezó a aceptar esta oscuridad que veía, y con el tiempo se volvió la bruja del bosque.

Pero esta historia realmente no se trata de Xanandra, pero sí sobre la oscuridad que empezó a consumir el joven príncipe que apenas vió a su querida alejarse de él, sin saber realmente el por qué, en su espera de que ella quizás retorne a él algún día.


Xanandra is supposed to be a very beautiful woman from long time ago, she had a smile that could charm anyone , she could always see the best of someone, she was loved by everyone and she was to be married to a young prince.

One day, and old witch casted a curse upon her out of envy, and so Xanandra started to see things that weren't there, she was starting to go mad, she was drifting away from all her loved ones, and so finally she isolated herself from everyone just because she couldn't bear to see the things she saw anymore, and all slowly but surely, she started to embrace the darkness she saw, and over time she became the witch of the forest.

This story isn't really about Xanandra though, but about the sadness that started to consume the young prince that just saw her go away from him, without really knowing why, in his wait that she might return to him one day.


Para aquellos curiosos, existe una segunda parte de esta historia en algun lugar en osu :D

To those curious, theres a second part to this story somewhere around osu! But its only in spanish though :D

11:06 ErufenRito: thought? Any particular pattern that plays really bad? :x?
11:06 ErufenRito: Yeah xD
11:06 Kert: None I can think of right away
11:06 Kert: Let me try again xD
11:08 ErufenRito: xD
11:12 Kert: Most of things I'll mention maybe apply only to me
11:12 ErufenRito: okay, tell them
11:12 Kert: 00:05:083 (1) -
11:12 ErufenRito: and if I see what youre saying in other players, then Ill consider it :D
11:13 Kert: I wasn't expecting a circle for some reason
11:13 Kert: I mean a stack
11:13 Kert: xd
11:13 ErufenRito: ohhh hmm
11:13 ErufenRito: okay
11:13 Kert: Uhm maybe there should be new combo?
11:13 Kert: 00:05:241 (2) -
11:13 Kert: On this one
11:14 Kert: Probably that was the reason I didn't expect it. I dunno
11:14 ErufenRito: youre... absolutely right D:
11:14 ErufenRito: I always suck at new comboing :(
11:14 Kert: Oh
11:14 Kert: It fucks up new combos later
11:15 ErufenRito: nah, new combo should be on that red tick D:
11:16 Kert: O
11:16 Kert: I'd say both variants work. It's just that stack that was hard to read for me
11:16 Kert: OK let's see what else
11:16 ErufenRito: thing with that song is that some parts... the down beat starts 1/2 beat earlier... not sure if you understand me :(
11:16 Kert: I do
11:17 ErufenRito: and so new comboing on that red tick, should be the correct way (applies for the other combos as well D: )
11:18 Kert: When mapping I sometimes intentionally start combos at the beginning of the "triplet"
11:18 Kert: if we speak about 2 circles in 1/4 and a slider after them
11:18 Kert: All stacked
11:18 ErufenRito: me too :(
11:18 ErufenRito: I guess thats why I unconsciously added the new combo where it shouldnt be xD
11:19 Kert: 00:55:096 (1,2,3) -
11:19 Kert: I couldn't read it after the previous combo
11:20 Kert: How about moving it somewhere upper
11:20 Kert: And also ctrl_h
11:20 Kert: And to the left
11:20 ErufenRito: Hmm i guess I wanted to add the effect of "back and forths" D:
11:21 Kert: Yeah I see
11:21 Kert: It was stacked visually on the previous circles so it was hard for me to understand at what time to press them
11:22 ErufenRito: From what I have seen, most people gets it right after a few plays xD
11:23 Kert: Well that applies to everything here :p
11:24 ErufenRito: xD
11:25 ErufenRito: anything more? =o?
11:26 Kert: Looking through
11:27 Kert: I probably suck at reading reverse arrows
11:27 Kert: 02:28:295 (1) -
11:27 Kert: that means I don't even pay attention to them at all
11:27 Kert: xD
11:28 Kert: ?!
11:28 ErufenRito: most probably
11:28 ErufenRito: Lol :D
11:28 ErufenRito: I mean... theres absolutely nothing covering them :D
11:28 Kert: Yeah but still I didn't!
11:28 Kert: xD
11:28 ErufenRito: Althought thats understandable... if youre one of those player that doesnt look directly at the object you hit (like me :x)
11:29 Kert: I am trying to this behaviour though
11:29 Kert: :D
11:29 Kert: to fix
11:29 Kert: And that's all I guess!
11:29 ErufenRito: Lol
11:30 Kert: While I like your previous maps more, this is still quite good
11:30 Kert: Keep it up!

IRC mod. gl.
uno de tus mejores mapas, felicidades
te amo :$
Esta muy bueno el mapa, pero siento que la velocidad de los sliders se queda muy corta comparado con el spacing que usas en todos los jumps, es decir, son muy lentos, o da esa sensacion, sobretodo en los sliders mas largos.

Es que no se hacer sliders largos, por eso mis maps tienen sliders "lentos" :(
i can make Taiko Muzukashii?
:) As requested

  1. According to new rules you need two taiko diffs. :< rule.txt
  2. Add some tags? Maybe you need tags like Hechizos, pócimas y brujería (have no idea what it means, but it's name of the album)
  3. Offset in Taiko Diff is different, please fix it.


  • I didn't like this diff, because it doesn't looks like actual [Easy]. Let me explain why:
  1. Flow. Flow here is quite weird and may stress/confuse beginners. Beginners aren't used to this kind of flow, it will stress them too much. See the spoilerbox below! I understand, that this is your style, but can't you make it a little it more understandable for beginners?
    Flow in [Easy
    Blue is the way, how players should read this pattern. It is not so understandable here, or looks confusing for beginners.
    Red is how beginners see your flow. Tail of (2) is too close, so beginners might mistakenly click it.
  2. Diff settings. Personally, I think that they're too high for an [Easy] diff. AR is too fast and other settings are too high, too. Try to use AR3 and OD/HP: 2. Song has fast BPM, so we should make diff settings a bit easier.
  3. Rhythm.Rhythm here is quite inconsistent. For the easiest diff of the mapset, it's better to make consistent rhythm. So, beginners will be able to follow it. Try to keep consistent rhythm everywhere, so it'll look like this. Fo example, I liked you rhythm at 00:58:773 - 01:18:143 - this part. It is consistend and playable.
  4. Breaks. This the easiest diff, so placing third break time would be a good idea. Beginners need some time to recover!

But there's some more things I'd like to point out.
  1. 00:48:294 (1) - short sliders like this one may confuse beginners. Personally, I think that beginners should be able to see start/end of the slider clearly.
  2. 00:55:915 (3) - 2nd and 3rd reverse arrows appeartoo fast, beginners have no time to read them properly.They don't even expect to see here more than ONE reverse-arrow. That's why sliders like this one aren't recommended for [Easy] and [Normal] diffs.
  3. 00:24:160 (3) - some of your hitobjects are overlapped with HP-Bar. Looks messy, so try to avoid overlaps :<

  1. This diff is just a [Normal]. I think you need a third break somewhere in the nd of this diff, players need some time to recover, y'know!
  2. 00:14:475 (7,8,9) - three finishes in a row sound the the way too loud. Try to replace finishes on (7,8) with whistles.
  3. 00:21:620 (2,3,4,5,6,7,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,2,3) - too many 1/1 clicking here, for a [Normal] diff with 189 BPM it's too hard. Try to replace some of 1/1 circles with sliders?
  4. 00:41:308 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13) - no. Same as above here :< Also, this combo is too long, try to place NC on (8) to keep comboing consistent!
    Note: it's quite clear, that you should apply (or ignore it) for all similar patterns: 00:46:388 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13) - 01:39:736 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13) -
  5. 01:15:602 (1) - After all those loooooooooooooong combos, you've got two short ones. Try to remove NC here and 01:18:142 (1) - here to keep comboing consistent?
  6. 01:32:115 (1,2,3) - sudden x1.2 spacing here for no reason. Can you fix it to keep DS consistent here?
  7. 01:53:708 (1) - your patterns are pretty similar, so remove here NC to make this combo a bit longer. So, you'll get consistent comboing :)
  8. 02:06:727 (5) - 2nd and 3rd reverse arrows appeartoo fast. Players don't even expect to see here more than ONE reverse-arrow. That's why sliders like this one aren't recommended for [Easy] and [Normal] diffs.What's more, normally you use only [b]ONE repeat on each 1/2 slider, that's why this slider looks pretty awkward. Consider replacing it with one long slider?[/b] you can try to make this slider curvy, instead (each angle follows 1/2 beat here)
    Note: same happens to 03:09:125 (2) - 03:38:180 (2) -03:58:503 (6) - 04:12:951 (3) -
  9. 02:14:824 (6) - try to place here a new combo. This is end of the kiai, after all!
  10. 02:45:150 (1) - I'd remove thin NC to keep comboing more consistent. It doesn't sound like you need this NC, anyway.
    Note: Same with 02:56:582 (1) - 03:16:269 (1) - 03:25:796 (1) - 03:35:322 (1) - 03:39:133 (1) - 03:45:483 (1) - 04:07:076 (1) -
  11. 02:57:852 (1) - nazi - this slider flows pretty awkward, try to rotate it for better flow. Something like this for better flow.

12:32 Sieg: да ладно, там их не так много же
12:32 -Bakari-: Просто я бы их где то в районе х2.0 держал :<
12:32 -Bakari-: 00:36:545 (1,2,3,4,5) - ну слишком же :<
12:32 Sieg: а ну это я могу объяснить

12:36 Sieg: лал

  1. Try to use HP Drain 7 or 8 to keep diff spread more balnced. Hard has HP Drain 6, you should make HP Drain here higher! 7 or 8 would be good.
  2. 00:03:996 (1,2,3,4) - stacking 1/4 and 1/2 notes is kinda bad idea, it plays pretty awkward and hard to read :<
  3. 00:09:712 (6) - consider moving its tail somewhere else, looks too much like part of this stream, so players might mistakenly hit tail of this slider :<
  4. 00:14:475 (1,2,3,4,5,6) - uhh... I'm not sure, but those jumps have weird flow. How about re-making them easier readable?
  5. 00:20:826 (1,2) - nazi - it'd be more reasonable to stack them with 00:20:032 (3,4) - for consistent flow, don't you think so?
  6. 00:23:684 (5) - combo mods are welcome? - how about a new combo here? To follow vocals and to keep your patterns consistent you need a NC here
    Note: 00:26:859 (7) -01:12:745 (6) - guess what? Same here \:D/
  7. 01:29:416 (1,2,3,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2) - WHOOAAAAA. man, you're overusing jumps or you're overusing new combos.
    Note: 02:26:097 (1,2,3,4,1,2,1,2,1,2,1) - 02:31:813 (1,2,1,2,1,2,1) - same thing here but looks cute, tho.
  8. 01:53:549 (1,2,3,1,2,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3) - can't you make patterns here more understandable. I'm pretty sure that this pattern is almost unreadable :V
    Note: if you'll do it, do the same thing to 02:37:846 (1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,4) -
  9. 02:55:470 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,1) - I'd keep spacing consistent spacing here. Anyway, don't you think that you need some sliders in this stream to make it more.. playable?
  10. 04:19:302 (7) - place here a new combo to make EPIC finish <3.

    Jumps everywhere. It's your style and I like it!

Good luck!
As I said NCs in beginning helps to read jumps and this 00:36:545 (1,2,3,4,5) jumps is fine for hard because they 1/1 so no change for my diff.
Thanks Bakari. :oops:
