Mmm… Cherry’s romance has a different vibe to it, it’s… very sweet (with plenty of angsty situations), whereas Cora happens to have more spice to it
Careful, I might use them to hurt you the most: in this game things are not going to be easy nor wholly happy
It’s a really fun thing to do, believe me
The MC can literally break certain ROs; it will take a bit of planning (several actions through the game, to make sure it doesn’t trigger accidentally) or change them (their personality, how they perceive the world around them) for good.
With some ROs it will easy to tell if they are truly in love with the MC (Rhona, Maetthere, Cherry, etc.), whereas you will have to play your cards right to get them to love the MC rather than it being just plain fondness/endearment (Cora, Lovage). Then there are those who you will never know if their feelings are real or means to an end
Yeah; the initial plan is that the two options are possible.
If the MC really, really wants to carry on the Nightshade line (and meet certain conditions), Leander/Baladre will give the MC one kid (or whatever comes out of one pregnancy, be it twins or triplets), but no more. So if they end up with one child, that’s the maximum for them. They will do the heir thing, but if there’s no luck the first time around, they won’t go for the spare.
Leander/Baladre won’t mind if the MC has children with other ROs (they may even prefer it), as long as they are discreet and don’t make an scandal or somehow manage to convince the RO to let the MC and Leander/Baladre raise them as their own.
In the case of dfab MCs, it’s going to be impossible for them to hide bastards from Leander; pregnancies are not something easy to hide, and he will know if the children is his or not (since he will be very much aware of if he has slept with the MC or not). And if the MC has been with both the RO and Leander, he will be able to tell, too, if the kid is his or the RO’s.
In case of dmab MCs, it would be easier for them to hide bastards from Baladre, since they won’t be the ones getting pregnant. Although if the RO has a baby who doesn’t look like her husband (because there’s no way they are going to have kids unmarried) but shares resemblance with the MC, well… That’s going to bring a lot of gossip.
There are some special scenes for ROs whose heart has been broken by the MC
