Hi everybody! I’ve been away on family vacation in a cabin in the woods that was supposed to have wifi but didn’t. Just now getting caught up on stuff… Sorry for letting the questions accumulate for so long; please let me know if I miss any!
Right now I don’t have plans for it, just because I can’t think of a meaningful way to incorporate it – maybe some appropriate adaptation will come to me as I move forward with the later books. (Originally I wasn’t going to include the Grail, and now it’s become a crucial part of the plot of the final book.) Guen sitting in the PS would be hilarious, though accounting for the ramifications and parameters of that in the game would probably be a nightmare!
That is indeed the question, and a central part of Book 6, so I can’t say much now without ruining it. But yes, they will find out, and yes, people will tend to blame Morgana even though it’s not really either of their fault (maybe slightly more Arthur’s than hers, if there’s any fault at all).
Pretty much!! Camlann will happen at the beginning of Book 7.
That too, and all the more so if Morgana is the one who gets the public blame.
Seven, actually, and yes, assuming CoG still exists in 1000 years when I actually finish them, I do hope to release them commercially all at once.
Oh gosh, now it’s been so long since I wrote the beginning of 2 that I don’t remember exactly how I gated the Morgana romance interactions! I am going to go back over all of it, probably many times, before the whole thing is finished. I’m pretty sure I set it up so that Morgana does pick up on Guen’s interest if it’s sincere, regardless of what Guen says in the tent…?
Thank you for finding the typos! I will fix those locally so they’ll be corrected in the next update. Much appreciated!
As @darkwolf76 says, Guen’s child is optional and Galahad is not (since he is plot-essential), so he’ll be Lancelot and Elaine’s son no matter what else happens.
As @justme says, it will be the usual not-really-historical era of John and Richard. While I’m casting Guenevere as pure fantasy, I want to try to write the Robin Hood game as “legend,” meaning it’s slightly closer to history (no magic, for example), but the legendary version of history that is traditionally handed down with the RH stories (e.g. Richard being a good guy instead of the absentee mooch that he actually was).
Really depends on how you break it to him. He’s Arthur, so it’s not like he’s going to be screaming for immediate executions even under the worst circumstances, but I hope to include a range of possible reactions depending on his relationship with Guen and how exactly he finds out. And yes, as @Sammysam says, if you play your cards right, Arthur will be open to a polyamorous relationship with Guen and Lancelot, eventually.
Yes. Because it would never occur to him in a million years to cheat, he doesn’t expect it from other people, either.
I think so? I have to see how complex I can make it, but that would certainly be a possibility.
@awkward_viking Thanks for delurking!!
I’m planning to make it a scale.
Hardened Arthur will probably treat Guen differently based on trust. Low-trust unhardened Arthur will probably continue to try to be nice, but low-trust hardened Arthur would probably give up on ever having a positive relationship with Guen.
Depends on who you want to poly-romance. If you’re going for Arthur and Lance, I think you will be able to move forward from already-established relationships with both of them. If Lance and Morgana, you’ll have to keep Lance at arm’s length until Morgana is more open to the idea (prob in Book 4), and you will most likely have to already be in a romance with Morgana (meaning you can’t add her to an existing Lance romance later).
