Re: Exam 2 Tips and Tricks

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. 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...

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...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

I didn’t realize the option to “Refuse” at the Dark Dance meant dumping Damien! (though I maybe should have, nice callback to how one locks oneself out of Damien’s route and the Initiation Week in HH XD) I think an option later in the year would be good - I agree that my PC would definitely want to ...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

A couple comments! Both Damien-focused, because I'm apparently that predictable (I hope to have comments about other things once I've replayed other focuses more, but in my defense Damien is a more knowable quantity than William, for instance, so it's easier to pick up things). - When MC and Damien ...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

I'm running into bugs after practicing in the dungeon on the first week-end (thus the massive amount of bug uploads I sent to Spiky Caterpillar, sorry about that...). I'm pretty sure it's something to do interacting with the dummy - maybe doing stuff without acknowledging the text or clicking "conti...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

Nice to see that Potsdam's just as dishonest about Iris Academy celebrating Christmas as she is about... well, pretty much everything else! :roll: It's not a super satisfying scene. It is on brand for Potsdam, but I won't lie and say I like that MC doesn't even comment on how her answer is both too ...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

Huhuh. ...Well, making it unwinnable reaps quite the reward. weeeeee terrible politics. i so hope i can bring back Damien to co-rule or something (I wasted my last mana point.) Still, the diary assumes I did it intentionally instead of not figuring out the right spells. Did I miss an option in the a...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

I'm hilariously stuck on the first exam. Hilariously, because I'm testing stuff: I know with my current spell selection I could pass the exam, but instead I wasted all my mana trying for other less-obvious solutions (because I wanted to see how far Blue and White could get me), so now I'm with 1 man...
