Damn the chapter was good, especially the offers to the queen. I went for the name first but the eyes thing was far better. Can’t wait to see the consequences of that.

Oh, yeah. Letting her pick her own prize is definitely going to bite you in the ass at some point.

PERIIOODD!!! :kissing_closed_eyes:


Idky, but I was terrified of giving up my eyes, I don’t mind a dull lifeless grey, because it matches my MCs mood but…I got such an icky feeling deep in my core, I just couldn’t do it. It felt wrong…like it would come back to bite me in the butt. I rather give up my name and risk being spirited away to live them for eternity. Might be my MCs only way to immortality anyways…who knows!!

I need morreee.

Love this story so much!! I’m always super excited to see an update :slight_smile: (also giving up my name HURT. gonna have to get used to being Jo Bloggs again :sob:). Quick question (that may have been answered in the thread already but I couldn’t find it)–what is the extra stat for (or is it a secret)?

It’s how much the duchess likes you (or more accurately, how much she felt you would be a worthy heir); I should probably change it to that in the next build, because it’s not really that important to keep secret.

I love that idk where this story goes sometimes! I was hoping I could ask the archfey to quadruple our magic proficiency, which in the blooded world still be considered bloodless. It would put us just barely higher than our dear professor I’d trade my eye color for that. Hell I’d tell them I’d join their fey court and live in the fey realm after we save the world.

Awesome game! I don’t think I have ever read an IF with so many plot twists. All the characters in the story are interesting, and many of them have unexpected backstories (wink wink).

Since I named my character Steven, I accidentally made the whole “Steve” fanclub thing even more hilarious. It is almost like MC’s fans are changing their names for him. :joy:

Really looking forward to future updates, especially since the plot has been so unpredictable so far.

One small bug:

On the character page in the stats, under Steve Everton, I can see the sentence “saved from the Witchfinders” before the whole Witchfinders incident happened. That confused me quite a bit and is spoiler-y.

Thanks! And whoops, I forgot you could get him on your stat screen before that point. :sweat_smile:

I’ve been on a WIP kick lately, and I keep coming back here and just debating jumping in. I’m usually one for actually being the chosen one, but I can’t deny the pull this has. It’s torture, Parrot. Screw it, I’m going in.

The duchess needs to think you’re tough and smart enough to take care of yourself, while not being actively (or at least openly) hostile to her or the magical world. :thinking:
