Blood and Runes (WIP) -- Updated January 10th



I loved the demo and i can’t wait for the MILF RO


Progress Update
One scene left until I finish chapter 3! I’ll be sending the chapter out to my beta testers to check out over the weekend (God Bless them). With that in mind, and the time it’ll take to edit, I’m going to put my updating date as 1/11/23 at 9:00 am EST. That’ll be when I post chapter 3.

Thank you guys so much for your patience! I know that I haven’t exactly been the fastest writer, but you guys have stuck with me and I’m thankful for that :pray:t5:


Congratulations!!! :tada::tada: College is so exciting and definitely fun if you get involved on campus. (From my experience)

Definitely going to be stressful though haha!


I made an artbreeder portrait of Aariz a while ago that came out horrific, but since then, I think I’ve improved my skills. In preparation for chapter 3 dropping on Wednesday, I’m going to be making an artbreeder portrait for one of the ROs. Here’s the poll to vote for which one will be selected:

[poll type=multiple results=always min=1 max=2 chartType=bar]

  • Aariz
  • Dalia
  • Adys
  • Ralys
  • Idar
  • Zara
  • Arassa

0 voters

Aariz won the poll, so here is his portrait! Thank you so much to @Fat_cat for designing it! It looks so much better than the previous portrait.

Aariz’s Artbreeder Portrait


Glad to help and looking forward to meeting him or any of the other ROs once the update is released!


The Update is Here!

I was originally going to post this tomorrow morning, but I’m going to be insanely busy then, so I figured why not just update now? I owe a big thank you to all of my beta testers, who really saved my life when it came to typos and bugs. I also want to thank you guys for your patience, and for sticking by me even though I went half a year without updating lol. There shouldn’t be any bugs, but if there are, please let me know!

In chapter 3 you:

  • Are briefed about your mission to assassinate Idar Melios
  • Choose a cover story that will impact you throughout the game
  • Travel to Reian’s capital of Asbaln and make your introduction at court.
  • Discover a little more about Aariz and Dalia’s backstories
  • Meet three more ROs
  • Begin to learn more about the court of Remys IX

Here’s the link to the update, which has chapters 1 and 2, and now chapter 3 as well:

Thanks for pointing out the bugs. They should be fixed now.

Yeah, I see what you mean. I can work on adding that into the scene when I get the chance, and I’ll also keep it in mind going forward.


Noticed a paragraph repeat when during the bath scene during the shy option if i recall correctly along with the save system having the error plugin message.

This new scene could possibly use at least one more choice.

By this, I mean we look to have two slightly different flavors of two extremes. Nice, or nasty. I don’t want to be nasty to Dalia–she doesn’t deserve that kind of mistreatment. :slightly_frowning_face:

I am having a hard time justifying being nice, though. Fair is fair, I believe, and if she wants to be distantly neutral, then having an option along those lines would be perfect for bringing that tone in just right. Not rude, but neutral in a way that suggests the MC will be as professional as she wants, if removed from any sort of friendly familiarity. If Dalia’s confused by this after, well… She did start it. :sweat_smile:

Got a typo for you

Proof Arassa is related to The Great Noodle, Linguini! (jk, naturally) :rofl:

As long as I can keep up a “who can out-neutral the other” competition, I will be satisfied. We’ll see who cracks first. :grin:

Plus, that doesn’t suddenly exclude the other ‘nice’ options like catching her before she falls, and then asking her to take a break to eat something. Self neglect is not good, and my MC isn’t about to let her get away with that nonsense. She will eventually ask for a hug of her own volition, if I have anything to do with it!


Not sure if this one has been reported yet

The man nods. “I am Adys,” he says. You note that he offers neither hit title nor his surname. He turns back to his son. “Derais, apologize to our companion.”

Progress Update 3/6/23
I’m gonna be honest with you guys, I really haven’t been writing much recently. I went through a bad period with my mental health, and my family’s been having some issues lately, which hasn’t helped. All that kinda sapped my creativity.

With that being said, things are looking better now. I’m going to pick up right where I left off. When I get further into chapter 4, I’ll give an estimation for an update date, but for now, I’m asking you guys to be patient as I’m getting the wind back in my sails. I’ll definitely be answering more asks in the meantime to try to make up for things.


SUPER SPEED is awesome

I know I write like a snail, and I’m very grateful to all of you for putting up with me as I work to write chapter 4. Here’s a little sneak peek of the first scene in chapter 4, as a thanks:

Sneak Peek

It’s dark in the room you’re in. You’re seven years old, and your parents are arguing. You hide behind the corner of the living room. Peeking past the wall, you see your parents facing each other, shoulders riddled with tension, brows furrowed into glares.

“This is reckless, Lier,” your mother spits, “what if someone were to discover you?”

Your father rests a hand on her shoulder, tries to placate her. “My love,” he says softly, gently, “I’ll be careful, I promise. I am among the best Runists in the Order. No harm will come to me.”

“I’m sure that Nadya thought no harm would come to her either,” your mother replies sharply, “and look at where that got her.”

*page_break Silence.

Your father looks at her, stricken, and even you, as young as you are, know that she has crossed a line. You hold your breath as he opens his mouth.

“That was too far, Revanna,” he says, “even for you.”

Your mother’s expression softens a little, but she refuses to back down. “It might be cruel,” she says, “but it is the truth, husband. Nadya was brave, Nadya was noble, Nadya had the absolute best intentions, and Nadya died. Murdered by her own husband. And poor Dalia, that sweet child, has been left with that wretch Ekon as her only parent. I would not have you feel the cruel kiss of his blade next.”

*page_break You startle at that.

What does Dalia’s mother have to do with anything? Unfortunately, you knock over a pitcher in surprise. Your parents’ mouths snap shut instantly, their eyes darting toward the noise.

As I said on tumblr, I’m working through my writer’s block slowly but surely. I’m planning for chapter 4 to be the longest chapter so far. I don’t have an update date yet, but it should hopefully be by May, unless something goes actually wrong.


Looking forward to the next update
