Questions and Answers
Q: What is up with the gender thing, and why is there no gender choice?
A: The culture in which the MC grew up, doesn’t really consider gender a thing, and a person’s sex is only discussed when it comes to procreation, which is why the only gendered words used are ”mother” and ”father”.
Therefore, the gender choice is moved from the prologue to chapter 1, when the new culture forces the MC to actually consider it.
Q: Why does my MC’s hair colour determine their father?
A: I thought it would be fun, and add some interest. It also allowed me to explain how the MC can be (dark) blonde in a country of dark haired, tan people.
Q: Will there be RO’s?
A: There will be optional romance paths with many of the NPCs, and each romance will have different ways they can evolve, depending on player choices.
Q: Why has it been so long since the last update?
A: I’m just gonna pre-empt this. I’m a slow writer, and inspiration and motivation tend to come to me in waves. Often not at the same time.
If you are looking for a regularly updated WIP to follow, this probably isn’t the one…
Q: Have you bitten over more than you can chew with this project?
A: Definitely. It will be a learning experience.
