Re: Theme song Discussion

The way Confines of the Crown dropped its song, imo, was amazing, it was very cool and dramatic. It encapsulated what the story would be about while showing it (and Madeleine) is a way that made me super pumped up. I'm not a big fan at all of the idea of a song at the May Day Ball: PC isn't always g...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

It's not 'Minnie-bashing' to express our feelings and debate her motivations (as long as it's friendly!!). I literally quoted a comment saying that Minnie was worse that a gaslighter who tries to kill his girlfriend. I'm trying to think of a way the character-bashing could be more obvious. And ther...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

Also does anyone else find Minnie a bit...mean? Or at least really sneaky and kind of dishonest? Like she tries to come off as nice and helpful but if you really look at her she is very selfish. To me anyway... I honestly find her indescribably worse than Damien in this, at least he admits he's evi...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

I finally found some time to play a bit on the new patch! Only on a Damien-mancing playthrough for now. The new exam is lots of fun - I've done it on my blue playthrough, and blue's also my favorite kind of magic, so yeah: fun ! I love that the flirty dialogue with Ellen has MC checking that he's no...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

I can't speak for everyone, just myself, but personally my frustration with Minnie isn't that I think she should react differently to Gary Stu, but that her behavior frustrates me and there isn't currently any discussion in-game of the reasons why she acts that way. If there was a conversation or m...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

Honestly, I didn't really see him coming off as being snobbish, which is sort of sounding like maybe you're implying that. (Maybe you can tell me if I misinterpreted your words.) In regards to the teachers and such helping him, perhaps if he had said something along the lines like, "I have no shame...

Is it possible to pass the exam with a White build? I have Awareness, Communication, Distraction, Empathy, Spirit Echoes, Tap the Flow, Distraction. (I've also picked up Silence in Blue.)

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

Would something like "laid-back" be closer to the mark, then? Eta: I'm on mobile, so replying to Minnie comments is a bit of a pain, but while I don't think MC comes across as hateable, he comes across as a cheat to get the copresidency. He's privileged, authorities cheat on his behalf, and he never...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

Now, I wouldn't have an issue being co-president with Minnie if she didn't come off as sycophantic and manipulative. She downright attacks the MC during the campaign speeches (which I find to be dirty) if you refuse to agree to be co-president with her. The MC makes a valid point that no matter who...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

Okay, I did a quick-ish first run-through of the new version. Omg, I've just met the librarian, and her design is a-ma-zing , and the art is absolutely gorgeous as well. Both kickstarter teachers look super cool and I so look forward to seeing more of them, I'm so excited! I also approve of William'...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

Personally, this is exactly why I like the romances with abusive characters, when they are done well and accurately. Knowing that things I've personally gone through that were hard on me are represented means that other people can learn the signs and understand for themselves why these relationship...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

Angela for me is a WHY?? in the same way Kyo is lol. Like... just too realistically abusive lol. :cry: Ahem. I think I don't... read her as abusive, exactly? Which definitely informs my perspective. See, I wouldn't really have a problem with Angela being a really insecure mean girl, but she did kin...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

Angela's the most interesting prospect for me (...nothing new here...), but I would have liked a Blaise or Taranis sidemance as well! So far Jacob is my second choice.

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

With regards to flirting, I'd just like to throw in that flirting isn't necessarily indicative of sexual orientation, or attraction to the person you're flirting with, either. Especially for someone who's "flirty". Personally, I like to flirt because it's fun, but it's not reflective of "people I'd ...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

As a European, I liked that MC's ignorance is framed in terms of America/Europe re:diamonds, it sells pretty well the fact that MC is pretty out of touch with non-magical society. And MC is 16, I think lors of 16-yr-old don't know scientists can make diamonds like that, and would be impressed to kno...
