Oh, hey guys I’m back from the beach! I hope you all came up with fun scenarios and questio----

SO HEY, WHAT KIND OF SANDCASTLES WOULD THE UNIT BUILD IN A COMPETITION AT THE BEACH???

My thoughts:

A- I think they’d make the biggest and tallest in the history of the beach bc of course they would—large enough for even Nate to stand in without issue

N- a modestly sized sand castle but with the most i m m a c u l a t e French Rococo embellishments

F- they build the Classic Sandcastle™ with turrets and maybe even a moat and a seaweed-driftwood draw bridge…they also probably built it too close to the shore and it gets destroyed minutes before the final judging starts

M- … a sand penis (they are immediately disqualified from the competition)


#9701

Is the Crossroads app available on Google Play Store? I tried searching for it but can’t find it.


#9702

it’s not an app, it’s a computer game

you can find it on Sera’s itch.io


#9703

Ugh, perhaps I should have been clearer, the Crossroads is not an app. You can play it on PC though; here’s the link:


#9704

Implying M could be convinced to participate at all :eyes:

Unless… they were coerced and then made sure to disqualify themselves immediately while trolling. I have been so blind.

Rebecca and MC get nostalgic and build one together - disqualified due to cheating but they don’t care. It is the ugliest one anyways.


#9705

Fun question: It’s said that the detective uses perfume / cologne / fragrance. What does your MC use? Also, how does MC smells naturally? (I mean how does the MC herself smells, not how a blood smells)

Henriette likes soft, powdery scents. She’ll probably go for something like Flower by Kenzo or Chanel No. 5.
Naturally, she smells like musky vanilla.


Finally got through a playthrough where Murphy escapes. But I’m unsure of how to interpret this scene:

Summary

This time it’s A who steps forward, shoulders drawn back. “The Agency would kill MC before letting that happen.”

Murphy’s sneer cracks into an amused smirk. “You’d kill MC? You’d really do it, just to stop me from getting MC?”

N’s head jerks to face A, and a sudden intense fear tugs in N’s chest.
A doesn’t reply. A doesn’t need to.

What does “A doesn’t reply. A doesn’t need to” means? Does it mean A is willing to let the MC be killed?
Because there was an ask about whether UB would save the detective or save the world; the answer to A was save the detective (but I presume this is deep in the relationship).


#9706

N tries to comfort them, but they’ve already moved past their disappointment and want learn to surf or boogie board or something.


#9707

Anne would go for lively floral scents, such as Viva La Juicy. Naturally, she smells vaguely like lemons.


#9708

You might wanna blur that or put it under a summary since it’s spoilers


#9709

Sorry @Mewsly, but blur what out?? I didn’t think it was spoiler-ish


#9710

I think @Mewsly is referring to the in-game dialogues you have quoted.

I really need to play TWC again but if I understand correctly, if A is your RO they would consider saving the MC life. I think that ask was intended for a UB member in a relationship with the MC.


#9711

I think A thinks if it was up to them, they would be capable of killing MC on command (probably couldn’t at the moment of truth), but to be specific, what is being said is that the Agency would.

Ultimately, I think this is kind of bullshit, because at the end of the day, the Agency knows that giving this order would cause Rebecca and UB to go rouge. UB is loyal to the Agency, but they are even more loyal to Rebecca.


#9712

Again, I not so sure about this - whether it was really a bluff. From the text it seems almost not.

Summary

F fills the void with a sudden sharp sigh. “Jeez, I’m glad your bluff worked!” F says, keeping F’s voice low enough so the detective can’t hear. F then swings around to face A, F’s grin faltering at the corners. “It…was a bluff, right?”

Once again, A doesn’t reply, and the feeling within N makes N’s stomach knot.

I don’t know if their loyalty is to Rebecca or to the Agency. If A is not bluffing, then it could perhaps mean that, they report to Rebecca, but their loyalty is to the Agency.


@resuri08 @Mewsly
Thank you.


#9713

I still think they seem to be more loyal to Rebecca. Don’t forget that Rebecca broke the rules by providing UB with DMB to save her child. If they are loyal to the Agency, shouldn’t they have the next in command know what happen and there was a breach in SOP.


#9714

So you think A is bluffing?

I haven’t tried a playthrough where A is the RO and Murphy escapes. Do you mean the scene is different when A is the RO.


#9715

A might see it as a kindness if the option was being Murphy’s guinea pig/blood bag. That’s an awful fate. I think they would try to find another way–both for the Detective and Rebecca’s sake–but if it was the last option, they’d do it. Sera said that if the Detective were to go rogue and do some awful things deeper into the relationship, A would take it upon themselves to administer justice.

I don’t know that the Agency would make them do it, though. It seems cruel, and like A says, the emotion involved might mean that they can’t go through with it. The Agency would likely try to let the Detective live unless there was no other option–I mean, they let literal serial killers live rather than just killing them.


#9716

Isn’t the punishment administered to rogue supernaturals even worse than death.


#9717

Man… I really wish we could take care of sick UB now…


#9718

Heh, I like that a sick M is basically a toddler.


#9719

I apologized if I was not clear. What I meant was the ask that Sera answered was intended for an already existing relationship between a UB member and the MC.

To be honest though, I haven’t tried an A route that have failed to capture Murphy because all my playthroughs has always been successful in detaining him. XD.

I have to agree with @Hannah_Minger view of this matter though. But I still think that A is not that cold especially if they have come to respect someone, I know there will an internal struggle. Dx
