I have a question. When is the first time other characters takes initiative when interacting with you?

Jess,

I found an inconsistency …

I visited Hermes in my second “free time” choice. Prior to that, I witnessed the trial of the Thebian king.

This is what is written as Hermes invites me to go with him to trial:

Emphasis mine.

I think you need a check here to see if a reader has been to the king’s trial or not.

Edit: It actually is a loop to the same content I experienced before, so a check is definitely needed above.

Edit 2: The loop is actually much larger than I thought. Not only is it repeating the court content, it is taking me through setting up my garden again.

That is… very bizarre. Thanks, Eiwynn; I’ll have a look and see if I can figure out what’s going on.

@AstinFamily I believe there are currently one or two such instances; I don’t remember exactly where. At least one of them is Hermes. This, like much of the romance in general, will pick up more in the next chapter.

Thank you for the update!
The progression of this story has me wondering whether the story will have multiple books or will it just be one book?

The plan is for a trilogy, yes!

Hi! Finally played the update! And it was great as always!
And finally getting a job, yay!
Just as with every update, the descriptions are so vivid and fascinating, I love it.

Some small issues I had, be it code or simply choice options I wished were present:
  • When meeting Hades:
    When he asks for MC’s name, the last option is labelled as a “flirt” one, but it doesn’t add to his flirt counter, from what I see in the code, which may cause issues if you need to keep track of how many flirt oriented options were selected.

  • MC wanting to go home:
    I have noticed in the code this time around that when the MC and Hades talk about the possibility of the MC not going back to Olympus even if the arrangement is broken at some point, that if the MC firmly says they don’t want to go back, it doesn’t change the variable related to that. My MC’s starting opinion was “maybe”, but then he realized just how happier he is in the Underworld, so I assume the variable should change? :thinking:

  • When the MC receives letters from Olympus:
    It would be nice to be able to tell Demeter not to try and get them out of the Underworld without it being a hostile letter. The MC can still be polite with her but still wish to stay, right?
    Generally speaking, I wish there was a possibility to say more in both letters, like the fact MC is happy in the Underworld, what they think of Hades or the other deities there and so on.
    For this one, I know there is another opportunity earlier to write opinions, but I seemed strange not to be able to do it now if it wasn’t done before. Or really, even if it WAS done before, considering MC’s opinions could have changed.

Aaand I think that’s it! Can’t wait for more! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
