I wanted to formally present one of my WIPs to the group, Sense & Sorcery. It’s intended as a regency / Sword & Sorcery mash up.
Deal with all matters of society and sorcery in this mix of regency and classic sword & sorcery. When your father vanishes, you are launched into a war between the towers in an effort to save your family and your prospects.
Sense & Sorcery
-Define your appearance, personality, and nature.
-This one is gender locked with female only genders. While for most of my works I try to allow for all genders and user defined genders, I’ve found that the coding gets bogged down a bit and some scenes end up with lots of social faux pas when I picture one gender in my head and then another is used in game that can range from off to even creepy. As this is half regency, I went with the historic Jane Austen heroine gender of female.
-Can be of any romantic persuasion. Upon completion, I’m hoping to allow for female-female, female-male, and female-non-binary relationships of both a romantic and very light adult make up.
-Find romantic prospects amongst sorcerers, cultists, dabblers, barbarians, rogues, pirates, bandits, thralls, fey, and more!
-Master regency and sorcery skills and spells as you navigate your way in sorcerous high society.
-Save your sisters and family or let all your towers and name come to naught. Your relationship with your family will be an ongoing adaptable experience throughout the game as you all find your way,
and find out who you really all are.
-Upon completion hoping to have a mini-dress up game of some sort.
So, what is this game? Is this some sort of satire or parody of Jane Austen?
It is less a direct parody than for example Sense & Sea Monsters and more a direct mashup, akin to perhaps Carnival Row in terms of genre. The tone does vary between the hopefully humorous to grim dark fantasy, however. The voice varies a little but hopefully falls somewhere between Jane Austen and Ronald Howard, overall.
This is my first time formally presenting a work to the group, so I hope this attempt matches whatever format is expected. I am interested in both high and low level feedback and everything in between. Constructive criticism is welcome; trolling and toxic/deconstructive criticism is not. In addition, please
let me know if you find spelling errors, grammar, errors, instances of word rep that seem non-intentional. My thoughts on grammar are a bit more fluid than some writers as grammar is a flowing, fluid thing always changing-that stated, some grammar failures will be obvious and these I hope to catch and fix.
Thank you for your time.
-I have set up a dedicated email address for this game at: email@example.com
This email address I’ll probably check once or twice a week.
-For faster response I have a more general email for all my WIPs at:
While I promise to try to read all feedback, I cannot promise to reply to all feedback. If I don’t reply this does not mean that I don’t appreciate or am not heeding your feedback.

-Note: While none of my projects there are erotica or such, due to dark fantasy elements and some romantic scenes with adult content patreon required my content be adult only. Adult elements are probably on par with perhaps Game of Thrones at worst.
