How is Dark Magic actually powerful? I’m assuming it’ll probably change but Dark Magic isn’t too different when it comes to skills checks and skill gains from what I can tell. Or is it because Dark Magic Lets us summon and bind demons?


#182

This is what separates dark magic from other disciplines. It is much easier to summon and bind certain allies when using dark magic.


#183

I take it Morgana is a play on Morgan Le Fay?


#184

“Morgana Le Fay” —> “Morgana Le Foux”

Indeed!

However, similarities between the two characters stop there. Morgana Le Fay was an antagonist, according to Arthurian Legend, while Morgana will remain on the MC’s side.


#185

Dark magic will become dangerous because people will notice it. You may even find yourself ostracized if you keep using it.

The suspicious characters will play a role in the story, although it will be more minor compared to characters like Hane or Morgana.


#186

Well, at least I’ll still have my demons.


#187

And your demons are glad to have you!


#188

@Karlan
Just wondering, are there disadvantage of having the demon as servant? Who else that can be allies? What is the use of having allies? Sorry for the many questions :sweat_smile:


#189

the story is good so far, but i feel im too overpowered in most of the story, in later chapters will we find more difficult challenges as it progresses.


#190

Originally romance options weren’t on my mind. I went the “be openly nice to people while using dark magic and charisma to manipulate your fate” like light. Then Morgana came and I flirted as soon as possible. Although I’m curious on if it’s possible to take the dark path, and if you play your cards right, keep people from catching on?


#191

The demon will only be a disadvantage if you use it in front of Hane.

There is also the promethean ally introduced in ch.3. There will be plenty of allies to come in later chapters. I plan at least 8 total, to include in the story.

Allies will help you in combat, and are typically more effective than your own magic.


#192

I made it this way because of an upcoming enemy in a later chapter. They will make the MC feel like an ant compared to themselves.


#193

Actually your intuition is correct. Using dark magic with high charm stat will allow you to get away with using dark magic in certain situations (although not every situation).


#194

Like this game. Is the allies Ro?


#195

No, the allies are not romanceable.


#196

Then that means I need no other friends :blush:

I need to go over this again, I feel disappointing when I don’t point out a large number of errors. :worried:


#197

Great work on the update! :+1: I love Hane and Danae and basically everyone. I want to hug them and keep them xD Now I’m gonna keep picturing the MC going to her parents, showing them Danae, Hane and Morgana and going ‘Can I keep them?’ [puppy eyes] xD


#198

oh shit, you are alive snow white.


#199
Summary

Wow! I love this, I can’t wait for more, I adore the interactions with friends, it’s a shame the tourney wasn’t part you could play those can be done really well and be super fun in these types of things.
Gonna grow up and marry Morgana.

Edit: I usually go for the dark powers in games, but I’m having fun playing my character as a physical brute who ends up being an atomic bomb when using magic.
