In a city ravaged by a mysterious and magical fog, you have to survive its maddening effects, and the horrors that lie within it.
Currently it has roughly 38k words (multiple choices and code included) and the first two chapters are done. I’m pretty much working on it constantly but keep in mind that I’m new to this so it may take me a bit longer than other more talented writers.
Basically the whole thing is inspired by the Fallout: New Vegas dlc “Dead Money”, hence the whole fog thing, but its main theme will be fantasy (eg magic, monsters, and so on)
The whole scenery is supposed to be dark and gruesome at times. Horror-ish but with some comedy here and there.
Romance will be a thing, planning on quite a few too.
So far the character roster is this:
Dean the noble with a “charming” personality
Ben the warrior
Neil the royal guard, Lynn’s twin
Dennel the tinkerer
Tin the herbalist
Lynn the farmer, Neil’s twin
Anne the blacksmith
Falmine the huntress and shopkeeper
Sybell the priestess
Morgan the stoic assassin
Osten the odd trader
Crow the innkeeper
Not 100% sure on the romanceable ones, might change, might not.

What I'm planning

-many romance options [roster done, scenes next]
-your story to be defined by your character’s traits and skills
-many endings, some evil some good, you decide [wip]
-tons of things to do, story won’t just be linear, other activities will happen [wip]
-maybe adding nonbinary genders, I’m still not familiar enough with them to use them
-feel free to send suggestions, I want to hear all of them!
Branching off mage:
-Arcane mage, controlling arcane lightnings and mana manipulation
-Warlock, summons, curses
Branching off thief:
Branching off mercenary:
Branching off peasant:
Available for any:
-all of the initial classes minus Pathfinder and Trickster
not many late-game classes planned, that’s why I’d love suggestions of what you’d like to see.

If you find any bugs, typos, things that are not displayed correctly (broken lines, things placed on the wrong line, excessive blocks of text, stats increasing but they’re not shown in text or vice-versa) or if you think scene x can be improved or needs to be worked on please do tell! I’m open to criticism.
Got a LOT of other things planned and I’ll do my best to achieve everything that I have in mind. Hope you’ll like it!
As a side-note, I’ve been thinking about adding a map of Haven (the main district the player will spend their time in) as well as a map of the whole city, but well… I suck at art so all I have is a crappy sketch. If anyone knows any software that I could use for such a thing or is willing to go out of their way and draw it by hand I’d be most grateful. Pm if interested/if you know of anything I can use
