Time Warden (WIP, Update 7/27)

I think it would be interesting to have a race option in this. It would lead to interesting interaction if you were any races aside from asian and even then if you are chinese or korean there would still be eyebrown raise. While there were western misionary there would still be plenty of distrust. And if you are african descendant you will draw too many attention. This is just my thought

Oi there @Kitty_Gaige this is one hell of an interesting project…

You use then almost all the time instead of than and to instead of too and it’s very damn frustrating. And used where instead of were in multiple places…

Would you add the save feature later on?

Don’t worry some of the character customization will come later and be from the perspective of the people the mc meets. That said short from the 2800’s is not the same as short in the 2000’s as Kai is the shortest person the mc knows, until Fumiko that is :+1:

In the time the mc comes from people define themselves by what generation they fit into in regards to genetic modifications. As such the mc does not have a concept of race seeing everyone as simply being human. There will be some strong reactions to the mc from npc’s in the past however who do still judge based on race.

Yaaa, lol. That’s one of my failings, something I have struggled with. No worries though. I will be running multiple passes through to correct such errors. :grin:
The save feature should be working, it was last time I checked. But I will look into it.

I hope you’ll do enough justice to the 1500s Japan :joy_cat::smiling_imp::kissing_cat:

I’ve noticed you tend to skip the commas that go before names or people being addressed. For example:
“Let’s go to Tammy’s Joey” is confusing. We are going to the Joey that belongs to Tammy?
But then:
“Let’s go to Tammy’s, Joey”
Is the speaker telling Joey that they are going to Tammy’s.

Anyway, can’t wait for more :slight_smile:

Omg so do I!

You have a great start here, dear author. I did notice that in some places you used the word “well” instead of the word “while.” Was this intentional? Either way, keep it up. I look forward to reading the final product :smiley::smiley::smiley:

Happy Monday everyone! Hope the weekend was good to everyone. I was not at all productive lol. Picked up Valhalla and got distracted!! But dang! One of the best Assassins Creed games ever :heart: :heart:

On to Time Warden, still not sure how I feel about that title. The save system ‘should’ be working now, I hope. Chapter one is progressing and I am working on the initial encounter between Fumiko, her kids, and the mc. So far its going as I had initially envisioned. For now that’s about it. Have a great week everyone.

This encounter will be were you get to set the mc’s height and eye colour for those of you asking :grin: :+1:

Alright! So, you versus fifteen samurai, who’s going to win? Well, the samurai if I can’t decide on how I want to run the combat system. On that note I will be redoing the initial weapon choice to include a melee, and ranged option which you can alternate between.

I don’t have an eta on when I will be updating as I am still very new to the whole scripting thing and I’m going to have to try and figure out how I can run combat. If all else fails I will simply make it a couple choices during each encounter.

Honestly if you can’t get stat checks to work you can always go for the style that is “if you choose the right option like punch him in the guts instead of the face you pass” kinda deal that some people do. Or just don’t do that at all and make combat more of a flavor with fake but cool choices than something complicated, either way works if you add cool looking scenes to the later.

Hmm, on one hand there being so many promising WiP’s such as this one is a blessing and speaks well of the future. On the other hand waiting for said projects to bloom into wonderful completed books is a monumental struggle for my horribly impatient soul, especially since i have already read all the completed games that interest me at this point in time.

Ah ignore my rambling, im just here to say that i look forward to experiencing your story and will most definitely be keeping my eye on its progress.

No, no. I am right there with you! Nothing complete to read and I’ve read through all the demos lol.

Alright, I have a minor update for you. It cover’s a small bit of Chapter One and the initial meeting between the MC and Fumiko. It is a very small update, only around 3500 words, but I felt I needed to get it out there.

I am currently struggling with the first major combat scene and have rewritten it twice now. I’m trying to determine how I want to script it. It’s been a bit of a head scratcher. Toss in some of my mental quirks and it’s probably going to take a while lol.

But it will be done!!!

So that’s my current project, figure out how to run a decent combat scene involving the MC and a mob.

Will it matter what generation we choose? And could you tell us something more about Gen 2, Gen 1 and Gen Null?
