Relics 3: Ashes for Gold UPDATED 15th October, Final Update, see Post 741 for details

Thanks for the comment! I’m glad you found them interesting, and sorry that you didn’t fully enjoy them. But I’m afraid that the commentary is part and parcel of what I’m doing here. It was always part of the design philosophy of these games that they wanted to say things about the “real world”. And that’s legitimate. Some IFs and books are pure escapism that don’t try to make points about the wider world, and that’s great and legit, there’s nothing wrong with that. But I always wanted to comment on the real world through fiction, and there’s a distinguished history of books which set out to do just that, so I don’t see it as a failure of the Relics trilogy that that’s what it does. But I also accept that that isn’t going to be for everyone, even while I affirm that I’m not going to change that aspect! Thanks again for your comment.

Hey, I noticed that our relationship with Maria is still ‘she thinks you’re an insect’ (or something like that) even if we are dating her

That’s the “middle response” - she doesn’t hate you, but she doesn’t like you a huge amount either! But yeah, that might be a little too aggressive for MCs who she is dating. I might rephrase that to make it a bit more neutral. Thanks for the spot!

I remember at the end of book 2 if you date her it’s actually something really positive but I can’t remember what now :sweat_smile:

Jealous. I missed the window when B2 was up, and now I have to wait until it gets published to be able to flirt with the playful thief. :sob:

What if there’s a separate relationship description for if you’re dating her?

No, not currently. But I should probably review the relationship descriptions at some point and think about adding that in.

“Well, you’re sleeping with Maria, and you’re certain she won’t kill you in your sleep. Well, FAIRLY certain. If you don’t have any artifacts worth stealing around, anyway. Probably.”

“She thinks you’re the cutest little insect. If she squashed you, she’d probably feel bad. For a bit.”

I never played Relics 2’s WIP because I decided to wait for the official release and now you already have the WIP for 3! Now I don’t know what happend to my Mc and Zhu. That is quite fast, lol.

Anyway, so I played my MC as charming and a linguist but it’s kinda odd because in the sabotage scene with Dominique, MC is so nervous because the Nazis seemed like they are going to talk to them? I just find it real odd because MC already “survived” talking/lying to the Nazis when they talked to MC if she saw someone landed around that area in a parachute. .

This is so exciting! Now I wish I played the demo for part 2. lol.

“She thinks you’re an annoying little meow meow, but you’re hers, for better or worse.”

SORRY I HAD TO LAUGH AT MY OWN SELF but also, yes, I cracked to all of that <3

I’ve been reading about the Long Range Desert Group for my latest research. It’s such an interesting story. These guys were about as tough as it’s possible to get.

Overall, making really strong progress. Won’t be long until Chapter 2 is done!
