The Bread Must Rise (WIP) - Now in beta testing, thread is closed

This is a great point. We do tend to think of her sometimes as the default “main” NPC, so we’ll be sure to watch out for that as we move forward!


Hey! I’m not sure if this is an error in the code, or I missed something, but choosing the “be friends” choice with Fondant, even though my Speechcraft is above 50, I still got the “failed check” option?

edit: some others- [spoiler]


Argyle took both 1st and 3rd place, not sure how that’s possible xD

Tira pronoun switch?? I distinctly remmeber Tira to be using female pronouns in the previous chapters, was that changed or do they use more than one?

Thanks! I will check into the Fondant and scoring bugs and see what’s going on.

Tira does use different pronouns at different times! We’ll have to make sure that’s clearer, I think. (It is entirely possible that we managed to make the clarity on the change only present in one possible playthrough.)

Tira’s genderfluidity came through very clearly every time I played. There was that fabulous sentence about her being what he’s always been and what they always will be. That sentence came up in every playthrough for me, and I chose totally different options in Playthroughs 2 and 4.

I meant my character as a genderbent version of the “emotionally constipated male lead” type of romance character, but she may well have inklings of characters like Lady Dimitrescu—that might be the type of trope James is referencing with the queen undying?

Oh, maybe I may have just unconsciously skipped over that part when reading; I’ll do another playthrough later and see

There are a lot of words in this game already. Details are easy to miss!

I’ve made a note for us to make extra sure that things like this are reinforced multiple times, if possible.

This is a really original concept, and I’m looking forward to trying it out. I think humor and horror are a really underrated combination.

Alright, I like the worldbuilding so far…

(syrup and nuts optional).

There’s a lot to unpack about just this alone, and I don’t know where to start.

That can only mean good things for the rest of the story. XD

Man, I just got done playing West of Loathing again.


Personally I’m more of a disco bandit kind of guy. :wink:

Glad you’re enjoying things so far!

I have now enabled save files in Dashingdon!

I was making this out to be an incredibly complex process that I would have to mess around with a js file for, but it turned out to be a single button click. Whoops!


Uh… perhaps you didn’t, quite.



I have now managed to fix it and get it actually for real working (at least, I was able to both save and load a game).

Appreciate the heads up. :slight_smile:

It let me save, but it wouldn’t let me load.

Her smoky eyes narrow to daggers. “My dungeon is not cruel. It is open, spacious and aesthetically pleasing.”

Ah, crap. I’m already identifying my favorite character, and to the best of my knowledge, she’s one of the villains.

If it makes you feel better, she’s one of my favorite characters as well. Second-favorite, to be precise. And I’ve read the whole thing.

Are you still hitting this problem? I was able to save and load on two different devices (Chrome in both cases, though).

It looks like from the screenshot that it didn’t actually save. At least when I was testing, the “Bad Slot” thing was replaced by the name of the save file when I hit save and confirmed it.

It apparently saved successfully, but then couldn’t load.

The screenshots are in reverse order, but you get the gist, probably.

Hmm! It’s working for me in Edge as well as Chrome (Windows) plus on Chrome (Android), so I don’t know what to try to resolve it.

Has anyone else run into this problem with the DashingDon saves?
