Or take your anger out on someone else.

It's always so disconcerting when I'm this certain about a plot that originates from one of my dreams... Oh well. That's just more fanfic fodder.

Revenge [SPOILERS]

Is it actually possible to send agents after Togami if he kills Joslyn, or did I imagine it? Because, I have tried every combination of skills and events I could think of, really, but the week after the duel I still get that "nothing could be done about it now" text. I could have sworn I read somewh...

Especially given how military skills, the "infuriate" Lumen ability, and the field hospital investment can affect troop movements both in Imbrium and in the civil war. Even 20-30 points in military can save hundreds of lives if you go to war with Ixion.

Managing a country is always a juggling act, but Elodie had mastered the art of being one step ahead of the game. Her information network allowed her to predict the moves of her enemies and outmaneuver them, allowing Nova to gain a little more power and prestige every time. Intrigue really is the b...

My first insurrection! It required a pretty impressively failtastic queen. Nice job breaking it, Elodie! For the record, here's her laundry list of failures: handed Imbrium over to Ixion, won a vote of no-confidence by the skin of her teeth, executed Banion, won a civil war, executed Arisse, slaught...

The evidence that I gathered about Lumen crystals suggests that using someone else's crystal is only possible if they're young and impressionable, and that taking an adult's crystal is basically useless because the personality of the user is somehow imprinted on it, and it will resist the person who...

I find that executing Banion at the Grand Ball is so entertaining that I've lost all interest in making Brin marry an Ixionite . I am starting to favor surrendering territory to Ixion in order to secure them as an ally for later on. It's amazing how so many options that fantasy stories have conditio...

I did that foolish thing where I accidentally doubled up the unlocking, so I executed everyone and also went to the trouble of hiring a bard. All those points pumped into horse riding for nothing! Well, not for nothing. I have an irrational affection for the animal skills. My current game has Arisse...

Finally! I enjoyed my success far too much. Despite their attempts at secrecy, there were many who had caught some glimpse of Charlotte during her captivity, and some who suspected exactly what had become of her. But you had to be careful who you shared such rumors with. If even that sweet-looking y...

Is a Lumen with a spare crystal stronger than two Lumens working in concert?

Also, is Togami stronger than Julianna and Selene? Also also, did he already have more than one crystal when he came to Nova?

The rate of eligible ladies is pretty low. Even outside of game-coded options, there's just not much to work with. Gwenelle is kind of a brat, Charlotte is related, and Adele... Well, technically Adele receives the same level of character development as most of the marriage options, so I guess she c...

The one I found was using magic against Ixion although now I think of it, I think I got a Sedna-related assassin once. My early games were based around a natural scaredy-cat tendency and so I kept the princess in the palace all the time on grounds that it's not safe outside. Of course that's a great...

Last night I failed to sacrifice Lottie , again . This may prove even more difficult than winning Briony's charms. Luckily fortune has favored me with a timely snow day. I think this calls for adopting a dog and hiring a musician. I am wondering how negative the opinions of nobles other than Joslyn ...

There's a ransom scenario on my shortlist of scenes I haven't unlocked, I assume that's helpful. I'm also interested in finding out the slow way what sets the "tone" to Elodie's reign in the epilogue text. I've had militant, religious, artistic, verbose and adventurous queens. I can only imagine the...
