I just spoke to him, and he said, with an imperious tone, “they are trousers, not tights–there is a significant difference.” Then he put his hands behind his back and rocked back and forth on his feet a few times, allowing you to gaze upon him.

Yep, delightfully tight trousers. :wink:

I’d like to say to Mr.shiny golden pants that he needs to check a dictionary or fashion magazine first before making a fashion statement

And on the other hand, “wow” I really appreciate you answering @idonotlikeusernames with the character’s quote and replying in character :blush:

I just finshed my replay of Tally Ho and I just…absolutely forgot how much I loved the humour and the writing style. So I’m just really excited for Cakes and Ale and it’s great to hear about your progress!

Tally Ho! Is easily one of my favourite if not my favourite CoG game, seriously looking forward to your work

I just finished writing Chapter Six, and now it’s time to debug this long chapter.

Then the epilogue chapter, and Cakes and Ale will be ready for its draft review.

The game now stands at 990,000 words.

Congratulations in advance on the first million-word COG! I am sincerely really looking forward to reading this. Although, uh, you’ll understand if it takes me a while to review said draft? :slight_smile:

Shhh, don’t tell anyone, but you’re my favorite professor-of-renaissance-literature/choice-of-games-author.

Seriously though, congratulations on getting close to finishing Cakes and Ale! I’m so happy for you :two_hearts::dizzy:

Oh man, I’m so excited for this! Tally Ho is absolutely one of my favourite games on here because it’s so much fun to read. I can’t wait to indulge myself in the Jolly Good Literary Universe and give it all the love it deserves. This first part alone sounds super extensive. It’s incredible. By God this is going to keep me busy for so long. Thank you so much for your service, Gower

Congratulations, Gower! :slightly_smiling_face:

This one reader is thinking how long a time it will take to make through the game, but how that`ll be a great time. Almost a million, huh? You will be giving Magikiras a run for words soon, I think.

Will the club we join be set on stone or we can choose which club we join?

It is set in stone.

Will there be different club politics we can pursue?

In this installment, the major issues that you’ll be dealing with, clubwise, is the relationship your club has with some rival clubs, the extent to which you can display your club’s prowess and elegance, as well as the leadership of your club.

There are very heavy political issues to deal with, such as how to move a table from the fifth floor to the first floor and then across the street, what is causing that banging sound on the wall by the fireplace, and how can we pay our bills with no visible source of income. Just to name a few of the more pressing issues.

That is a serious issue indeed! Now I see why it needed its own epilogue chapter for it to be explained!
