Temple of Endless Night (WIP) (Chapter 6 is COMPLETE!)

I like it so far! Even without physical descriptors as mentioned above, I could get a feel for the characters based on the dialogue.

In the beginning, when trying to choose to be a thief, i get: prologue line 691: Invalid expression at char 17, expected OPERATOR, was: STRING [“Untrained”].

This is shaping up to be really good. I love the setting and the unique class/specialization choices you give also. Not to mention the character interactions while brief are fun and interesting

My character was a mage, but I chose the ‘Ra will protect me’ option. The text says I am not a mage.

I think it probably has to do with a magic skill threshold or something like maybe you know magic but you’re just not a big enough badass :man_shrugging:t2: I’m a spellsword and it said the same thing

Changelog
17 July 2020

  • Added the second part of Chapter 1 (ca. 2500 words, excluding code).
  • Added new names for all genders (1 per gender).
  • Added a few paragraphs (introduction of a new plotline) to the first part of Ch1.
  • Fixed the “while you are no mage” bug.
  • Fixed a few spelling errors.

The next update will add the third (out of five) part of Chapter 1. Note: The next part will introduce the second Love Interest. He (male) may be a bit tricky to romance (or even meet), and I consider him to be the secret romance. However, he is not the true route or anything like that. There is no such thing in this game.

@Diandra Thank you for reporting these bugs! You’re being incredibly helpful!

@Nick_Miller Thank you for your feedback! I’m glad you like the class system.

Also, I want to thank everyone who voted in the poll! You’re all amazing.

This looks like a very promising start, especially with the magic involved. I hope that we will be able to do amazing magic feats in order to fight off whatever is lurking in there. Also, the system of sanity is intriguing too. However, I wonder to what extent it will affect how ROs and MC operate during situation. Is it something like going insane and starting to hurt other people? Or something less grotesque as in temporarily being unperceptive to the surrounding environment?

Got this trying to train with the mercenary

@Mei_Hiroshi I’m truly glad you like it. You will definitely be able to cast interesting spells and perform certain rituals. I don’t want to spoil too much, but I think I can reveal that there will be many different endings to the story. There’ll be some endings available to everyone, and then there’ll be “special” endings with specific requirements. Every class will have a special ending reserved only for that class. Romances also add extra endings.

Your sanity bar can make you go mad. You’ll no longer be able to tell what’s real and what’s not. If you get a relatively “good” ending, but your sanity is very low, bad things can still happen. The same goes for your companions. I’d like to notice that the “thing” that happens during the investigation in Ch1 (when you climb) doesn’t have to be real. At this point, you can’t say anything for sure. Btw, MC’s reactions to certain events (their thoughts - the ones you pick) do affect their sanity bar.

@Nick_Miller Thanks! I’ll fix it right away.

@Nick_Miller I think it should work now. If it doesn’t, please do tell me! :sweat_smile:
Also, only certain reactions lower your sanity bar. You can investigate the scene and stil manage to keep your sanity in tact.

And I love the fact that he’s a “supposed missing worker:joy:

Fun fact: If you play a Scholar, you’ll actually know a bit more about the workers, and you’ll get an extra choice when picking your motivation.

@Konoi I hope you like the update!

Hm. Maybe I’d be better off not trying so hard to find the supposed missing worker :sweat_smile:

Also i just realized I goofed the resolution on these screenshots a bit so it may be a bit tough to pinpoint the scenes they’re from :sweat_smile:

  • Added more purity changes (to already existing content).
  • Added one more thing the MC can do before they go to sleep (ca. 1000 words, excluding code). Just be careful, guys. Oh, and you should get a warning if your favor is high enough.
  • Fixed a few spelling errors.

I wanted to add more content today, but the day is just really weird and my energy is very inconsistent.

Thank you for your reply earlier. If I may ask one more question: what is purity stats? How does it work and what it affects? Thanks in advance for your time :blush:

@Mei_Hiroshi Purity is kind of like a magical shield. It grows with your favor (though not always), and it may protect you from outside forces. If someone tried to attack you (with a spell or something), but your purity was very high, you would have most likely escaped unscathed. Favor may give you strength and power. Purity is always about protection.
It’s a bit like the story about your god’s mercy. The gods protect/heal/save you because they know that you’re a “good” person and you don’t want to fight.

@Mei_Hiroshi You’re welcome! :relaxed:
