The Shadow Society General Discussion Thread (update on #150)

@Sweet_Potato Thank you so much! I’m really happy that you enjoy it :heart:

@Lunanova I’m very sorry to say that both discord servers have been closed for the time being, and I don’t know yet when they’ll be open for anyone to join again. The reason for this is that we had the links being shared among members of an extremist group, and a few of them joined the server before we banned them and closed them as to prevent anyone else like that from joining. It really sucks and I hope we can open them again soon, but opening them is still not a risk we’re willing to take.

On another note, I’m fairly sure I’ve located the issue for the game thinking that the player is always in the love triangle route (possibly the same error that kept popping up at the tattoo scene). I can’t promise it’ll be solved for sure, but I do think this issue was the culprit and I’ve fixed it and sent in the files. I don’t know when the game will be updated though, but hopefully this should be fixed in the coming days :blush:

anyone know which RO has the ice blue eyes?

It’s Azuridian/Azuridia

Thanks

Played your game today, and have to say I absolutely loved it to bits. My boyfriend had already played it, and said nothing but good about it. And yet, despite going into it with really high expectations, I was still absolutely blown away by it! I can’t wait to play the sequel, so I can continue my romance with Michaela. Although admittedly, it’s kinda weird to romance a character with my sister’s name :joy: But hey! Weirdness aside, she’s too sweet a bean to pass up on. And my inner lesbian really do love sweet and considerate girls, a little too much for me to say no to her :joy:

@Cyphr Thank you for the sweet words :heart: I’m really glad that both you and your boyfriend liked it!

I wanted to make a post here to say that I’m fairly certain the A & R - triangle bug should be fixed now, at least from what I’ve seen so far. I hope that’s the case for some other bugs as well, though I’m working on figuring out one that unfortunately still appears in chapter 13. If this isn’t the case and someone happens to catch something that’s out of order, I’d be really grateful to know about it.

I’m also working on the content update for chapter 9, which is going fairly smoothly admist everything else. Thanks for being patient and sorry for the inconveniences. I hope everyone are staying safe!

Hello! First I would like to say that I absolutely LOVE this game-- I adore it and all of it’s characters <3 (Rheylo is my favourite though <3) It’s definitely my favorite Choicescript game, and one of my favourite games in general, so thank you for writing it! : D

And I hope I’m not being a bother with this, but I noticed two issues-- For some reason on Rheylo’s second scene, it registers whether you chose to escape or stay during the car scene correctly at first, but when/if you click the option to laugh at his statement of calling Gwyndal an “unhinged lunatic” the game starts acting like you tried to escape even when you didn’t??

Also, Quaiel’s description doesn’t show up correctly if you select that you’re drawn towards the “fiery red eyes”/Rheylo’s eyes? Like when it starts describing the characters after your character wakes up (and your character ends up hitting their head against Rheylo’s lol), it just says “It’s the other stranger who really catches my attention though.” and then just… doesn’t describe them and carries on :0

(I’m not sure if this is spoilered right? I’m not sure what does and doesn’t need spoilering… let me know if it needs to be changed tho and I’ll edit it :ok_hand: )

Sooo I’ve played the book about 3 times already and… A thought was was lingering in my mind all the time since from almost the very beginning. Like “Gosh how could this be so fricking good?”, cause I genuinely like these kinda badass fantasy-romance books, and damn was this a good one. I can sooo honestly say that I am looking forward to the next one, cause oh boi, G and The Shadowman really captured me and I can’t get out…
So the only slightly disappointing thing I found about the book was that we didn’t get enough romance (more like flirty​:thinking:) scenes and interactions with our most dearest Shadowman for my hungry appetite.:smile: I get it tho, that this book was his introduction to us maybe? Well you piqued my interest haha.
I read that already, that your planning to put some more romance scenes with him, which I am just soo grateful about, cheers for you!

I wanted to ask tho, if there will be any poly relationships possible in book 2? Just asking, cause i think that would be cute^^

So you betcha that I will be here when the next book comes out, supporting you and the insurgents (Or rather, the opposite team🤔). :heart:

Just would like to say I absolutely love love love this game. I’ve played a few times through already and seriously can’t get enough. (Azuridian = swoon!) I’m just curious if the author has a patreon or something similar - anywhere we can get updates for Book 2 and be able to show our support?

@Divine the author does not have a patreon afaik, but here is their tumblr and kofi!

OMG I absolutely love this game!!! The quips & wit are spot on fantastic!!! I was actually laughing so hard at certain points I was crying. Hahaha even my roommates have came into my room to check on me due to the roar of laughter. lol :joy::joy::joy:

Amazing Job with the characters & world building. I picked this up on a whim & all of the paths have been great so far. I can’t wait to replay checking out other interaction between characters. All of the RO are amazing I don’t even know if I could pick a fav. Totally can’t wait to see what you do with the next book.

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.

Well, it was posted on Tumblr about a rewrite of book 1, so its going to take until after that. In any case, we just have to be patient and support the author no matter how long it takes, I’m sure we’ll have news on both books as soon as there is something worth telling

Any idea how to start the romance with J? I know it’s one of the late starting ones but it feels like her reactions are closer to friendship.
