Hi everyone! I’m still dealing with extreme crunch time at work, so I apologize for not being able to reply to stuff very quickly. Things should calm down in 2-3 weeks.
@Skagit Thank you so much for all of your kind words! I’m happy you liked the fingernails part; it was fun to write. And happy you’re enjoying the Morgana path and the game overall. I hope you’ll like the next part when it’s finally ready!
@Vee Thank you to you as well! The sheep and the doppelgangers were also a lot of fun to write; it’s good to know they’re appreciated.
@Shawnheatherly I’m so glad you decided to play it; thank you! Suggestions are always welcome, and I don’t mind hearing the same suggestion more than once – in fact, that usually means I take it more seriously.
@Grundpfeiler Ok, let me see what I can do…
A little, but he doesn’t see the full scale of it. Arthur admires Morgana so much that he doesn’t see how potentially vulnerable she is. In his mind, she’s so powerful that she shouldn’t have to be afraid of anything. And yes, in the long run, people may very well begin to see her in a more negative light, perhaps even to the point of blaming her for Mordred.
Lancelot is more attuned to this than Arthur, though he, too, suffers from excessive confidence. He’s capable of imagining a torches-and-pitchforks uprising against Morgana, but he’s not too worried about it at the moment. After Mordred comes along, we should see him being more protective of Morgana and her family.
Arthur knows that dark magic takes a toll on Morgana, but he doesn’t see just how much of a toll it takes. Arthur’s primary exposure to dark magic is through Merlin, and Merlin doesn’t pay the same price because he’s half-fae. I doubt that Arthur thinks much about Merlin’s possible decline; Merlin’s always been there for him and has always been somewhat crazy. (Arthur could be in for a shock eventually, depending on choices.) Arthur certainly recognizes that Morgana is more useful than Merlin in a battle. Lancelot is much more attuned to how tiring dark magic is for Morgana, but he doesn’t want to make her decisions for her. If she wants to use her magic, he’s not going to try to stop her – but you’ll notice that he does little things to try to help her, when he can.
@WishingforDragons thank you!! I also very much want to see Guen’s baby, and all the drama of the accusation (there are going to be SO many variables I will have to take into account by then; it’s going to be insane).
Arthur will not be able to tell unless Guen hasn’t had sex with him, in which case even Arthur isn’t naive enough to think that a stork brought the baby. If Guen has had sex with Arthur (within the appropriate time frame), she will be able to tell him or not. She’ll know immediately whether the baby is Arthur’s or Lancelot’s.
@buggygirl Yikes, that definitely needs to be fixed. I need to overhaul the tent conversation with Arthur yet again, because I want to make it possible for any Guen (allosexual, hetero, whatever) who DID have sex with Arthur to tell him she doesn’t want to have sex with him again (for whatever reason), or that she only wants to do it for babies. At that point, I will make an “only for babies” flag (which I think doesn’t currently exist, unless I made it and forgot?), and then I can use that to change the language you’re talking about. Thanks for pointing that out; I doubt I would have caught it!
