RIP, N’s gonna have their work cut out for 'em with your MC and A.

Ohhh, I get you. If it weren’t for college I’d be shaking in my seat with excitement until the next game came out. But it’s just really hard to gauge when games will be finished. Sera is an incredibly diligent writer and works really hard to create this world for all of us to enjoy, but that doesn’t mean life can’t get in the way unexpectedly. It’s not like regular video game development where there’s a team to pick up the slack should anything (god forbid) happen. So it’s really dependent on life and luck to get things done, and those two things are notoriously fickle.

And that’s not even getting into the increased complexity with each successive game which will mean more writing/coding/work.

Because of that, I can’t even guess as to when the next game will come out and I know that that must be frustrating but it is the closest thing to a sure thing that we’ve got in forecasting the release.

But hey, that’s why we’ve got the forums around. To bug each other with theories and jokes and general fannishness to hold us over until then!

I’d like to remind people that general discussion should take place over in: The Wayhaven Chronicles General Discussion (SPOILER FREE FOR BOOK THREE!)

This thread is meant for general feedback (what you loved or if you thought something was off or missing that you’d like to see).

It’s fine to let it go off topic for a few posts, but let’s not break up the discussion and have it spread of multiple threads. :wink:

Progress Report

Made a real great start to Chapter 9 this week!

I actually ended up adding in an extra scene for each LI that wasn’t planned, so that put me a little behind. But I think it’s worth it for what it added!

I’ll be starting on the first friendship scenes decided by friendship points today! Looking forward to that, particularly M’s, hehe :smiley:

As for March’s goal, well, I am very pleased to have completely streamrolled past it!

My goal for March was to complete Chapter 7, and not only did I complete it, I finished Chapter 8 and got about a third way into Chapter 9 too! Woohoo!

For April’s goal, I would like to finish Chapter 9 and get 2 of the LI scenes done for Chapter 10.

As some of you may have seen on Instagram, I’m doing special Spring-themed scenarios for each of the LI’s on Patreon in April too, so that’ll be a good heft of writing to get done! But I’m feeling confident about it :slight_smile:

Looking through my plans, I forgot how completely massive Chapter 11 is :smiley: So I got to make sure and build myself up for that one!

So a great week again, and hopefully next week will be just as productive!

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! :slight_smile:

Okay, you know how you said somewhere (possibly in this thread and possibly somewhere else that I don’t remember) how you’ve had the idea for this story in your head for years but it never felt quite right until you put it into this choose-your-own-adventure type of format? I was wondering about that. Did you have an MC all fleshed out? What was their name? Boy or girl? What was their relationship with their mother? And what about A, N, F, and M? Where they guys or girls? And who ended up in a romantic thing with the MC, at least by the end of where the Wayhaven game is currently? Basically, can you tell me the stats and choices of the MC you had in mind before formatting it this way? I’m really curious.

Mishka doesn’t really come on here—only to post her weekly status. But she has answered some of these questions before.

The MC’s name was Lauren Langford, and there was a love triangle between the MC, Nate and Bane (who is now Adam). Adam is different and not as uptight and hostile as Bane was (which is saying something lol). The others are pretty much the same. Felix and Mason were there to show other aspects of vampires. Felix was more of the best friend of the group while Mason was to show the more menacing side of vampires. Lauren, I believe, was more of a sarcastic MC.

And that’s it as far as I remember. If you want answers, I suggest going to her tumblr and submitting an ask, but I’ve pretty much covered everything already.

Okay, thanks. Huh. It’s weird thinking of Adam as Bane. And also weird trying to imagine Adam as being even more uptight lol

I would love it if you romance A and either you or F tease A about us shooting her

F actually already teases A about it in the 1st book. :slight_smile:

I know, right??? :laughing:

Thats all up to you, game doesn’t mention your race.

Is that what that “gweilo” means? That’s rude.

Well, you can play who you want to. There is no restriction, so your query of:

would depend on you, I guess.

oh man i had to google this

@Ferrrrrnando Hey we like to keep a nice, friendly and inclusive atmosphere here, regardless of background. Would you mind very much editing your comment just a touch?

The literal translation of gweilo would be ‘ghost person’. The ghost part could be a reference to the ghost’s pallor (the light skin) or, more negatively, to demonic aspects (which would come from the resentment towards the west).

The literal translation for ‘white people’ isn’t used to refer to white people, but gweilo is used instead. Generally, it simply refers to white people without the negative connotations associated with the ‘gwei’-- the ghost. However, it can be used in a negative or racist manner. It comes down to how it’s used (i.e. the tone or situation).

All that said, I can’t say I like how Ferrrrrnando used it.

Well, the only negativity I like seeing on this thread is when everybody agrees to hateloving Bobby.

Oh, you sweet, slimy reporter. May you never change even though it would super nice if you did imagine if Bobby used their powers for good…god I can’t imagine either, damn it Bobert
