Nope, not going anywhere near it til release. I do this with author’s I trust and @malinryden has earned that from me.
I wish I had that kind of willpower. I’m surviving the wait with this WIP and fanart on tumblr.
I have to give feedback for anything an author I like asks. Fortunately she seems to have enough people clamoring for the WIP that more or less people giving feedback doesn’t matter, but I know how important consumer response is in the production stage so I feel I have no choice but to help out someone so amazing when asked.
I’ve also followed Malin since Fallen Hero’s early days on this site and I’m not sure which one of us is older but I feel like she’s my child that I must encourage every step of the way as I watch them grow. A somewhat exaggerated analogy, but an apt one nonetheless.
Honestly, I was not even aware there was a WIP, but yes, now I am avoiding it as well. With the same fear for spoilers as you have, thereby comes the fact that I prefer to just continue reading until the end.
Seeing as this is labelled ‘Theories and wishlists’ I figured I’d mention some things I think might improve book 2.
I haven’t actually read the second book’s tester, as I want to wait for the full version on choice of games.
I recognise that I can romance Ortega and Dr. Mortum in the first book, but something that always annoyed me was that I couldn’t romance Rosie, (male version is Boris)
Or Lady argent, as I think being her arch nemesis, and romantic partner would be pretty interesting and potentially pretty fun/exiting.
Also, I know the MC is meant to be evil and hate his old team mates
(especially Chen who, funnily enough, is the only person you DON’T beat unconscious)
But I find it really hard to be mean to Ortega and crew, they’re so nice! It’s like, no matter how hard you try, the MC is fundamentally an A class jerk.
Is that just me? Because I might just be getting too connected to these characters… again…
This has already been confirmed to be in book 2 along with a possible romance with Herald.
I got the feeling the Rosie/Boris are really meant to be throw away characters.
As to having mixed feelings about whooping ass on Ortega and company, that is what the intention of the author is, she is trying create a conflict in our MC. To make them torn between the their past and what they have been ‘forced’ to become.
I apologise, I have been avoiding spoilers like the plague up until now and wasn’t aware.
Thanks for the feedback, and uh.
That means I have to go back and play the first part again without making out with Ortega…
I have actually only two wishes. First that we are able to bring our fellow ranger buddies to join us and second that we will get a good route where even though walking on the dark side still trying to do good things and improve the realm.
I kinda hope Ortega will turn down or not be as romantically interested in the MC if they’re dating the puppet, some of their behavior felt abit crappy in the 1st book in regards to that & will make them look worse if the puppet becomes their official GF/BF but they still act like they hope they’ll get with the MC eventually.
Indeed, though my mc really only does the monologues in the midst of the fights for Herald and Ortega, against his better judgement, but with those two he just cannot resist the temptation.
Agreed on the “mentoring” Herald parts, though I assume my mc has another ulterior motive with Herald specifically that yours lacks.
If you kissed Ortega at the end or made it known you still had feelings they will break up with the puppet immediately.
Because their love for MC is deeper than any ocean (lol) and no one can replace MC.
They are like ‘doesn’t matter if MC won’t return my feelings, what matter is that I love MC’.
A game is already published… been few years… now no one is taking about it(I won’t say what game it is for now). I bought the game. Played it. Didn’t like it at all. I found a forum that is few years old but for some reason it was still open. So I just rant about the game in that forum. Some times later I received a message saying my post has been flagged by community members. Then the forum was closed when I return.
Dude, where were you when the forum was open for so long. You didn’t think about closing it then.
And yeah… I used words like ‘horrible’ to describe the game. But come on… I paid Rs-130 for this game… so obviously I was upset that the game was shit… sorry again.
And sorry for rambling on this thread for an old game that could not satisfy my hunger for cog and hosted game.( I would say less than 1%).
Am I the only one who is excited about the relationship with Ortega? I want to know how MC will handle Ortega’s feelings when he knows the truth + I want to see Ortega’s internal conflict about our MC secret and if it will affect his feelings permanently. Same when Dr discovers the true identity of the puppet.
I’m sure you’re not the only one. I think Ortega s one of the best RO.
Besides the talent of Malin of course, One of the reason in my opinion is because there’re only 2 ROs in book 1. I find that the games having few ROs have more qualified ROs than those having many. Ortega’s life, relationship and characteristic are depicted specific and profound.
Based from the FH2 thread and Tumblr, it was safe to say that Ortega is a popular RO. I’m in the minority since I’m waiting for SteelxSidestep moment.
Awww…I’m waiting for the dinner scene with that cutie Herald.
