Sequel Talk - Magical Diary Wolf Hall
Posted: Thu Jul 07, 2011 6:47 pm
This thread involves current plans for future games.
These games are NOT actually being written at the moment and as such, information is subject to change.
So here is what you know about Wolf Hall so far:
1. The main character will be male.
2. The main character will not be wildseed.
3. Damien is a pursuable character.
4. Minnie is a pursuable character.
5. Grabiner is not a pursuable character.
... I know more than that, but I'm not saying!

Oh man, this has got me interested already! Especially number 4 ^^

So Pastel definitely won't be a romance candidate since her story arc is going to be told in the Butterfly Hall game
correct? At best she can be a 'secondary' or teaser romance (like YMMV Big Steve or failed romance attempt! Kyo or one sided crush William
were in Horse Hall).
So what is known from hunting around is that the Wolf Hall PC is also an exchange student. Will it be Year One student again (if you know western comics almost a What If or Elseworlds deal with instead of a Wild Seed Girl What if an Exchange Student boy had entered Iris Academy - how would they have changed the lives and events of this first year).
So I'm going to make wild assumptions and my hopes Wishlist here then.
Assumptions: it'll be the five romances again with some teaser friendships/one sided crushes/ and that it will split three female/two male to coincide with Horse Hall's three male/two female balance.
There will be a Snake or Toad full romance (since there's a confirmed Butterfly already woot!).
There will be some kind of weird crush/powerplay/romance with Potsdam. Just because a woman is presumed to be past her birthing years doesn't stop her from being desirable. Go cougar dramatically Potsdam!
Angela for romance! She can try to out Damien damien and we will all be torn between wanting to romance her just because and wanting to break up with her before she breaks up with us!
Also Manuel. He's just so damn cute I want to squish him, but he was barely in it. *squishes*
Now don't tell me how wrong I am. Let me bask in my imagination for like six months until alpha/beta comes out and then I can squee about what is actually available.
*bounces* I'm excited for the next game and also whatever small project Hanako and Spiky are working on between installments.

You read my mind! I totally want to explore cougar Potsdam - there is so much going on with her that is fascinating and I want to know MORE!
I love that Minnie is an option and exploring a M-M relationship with Damien and seeing how differently he handles a guy will be really interesting.
I'd also like to see a Snake/Toad. Bring on the Suki love! While I very much want to romance Big Steve and Balthasar, I think they may work better with a female protaganist? Especially a Butterfly girl.
Manuel, on the other hand, I think would be great with a Wolf boy.
I also want to know if we'll get to meet properly the blond boy from the first Green class (I think it was Green?). I don't think we see him again in Horse Hall, but he raised pretty interesting issues in that first bit so I'd like to find out his story.
I'm so so excited at the teasers...

Since everyone's talking about romance, here's some other stuff I'd like to be able to do (either in this game or a later sequel).
*Join the chorale club.
*Actually WIN the presidential election.
*Try out for the musical.
*Learn more about the minor characters like Luke, Logan, Raven, and Balthazar. Especially Raven - the Snakes seem like an interesting bunch.
*Have more opportunity to cast the different spells you learn.
*Visit the Otherworld.

... If you saw the Otherworld, you wouldn't see it for very long...

Mmm, I pretty much agree with everything here. The only thing I disagree with is the Potsdam thing. >.< Too much Squick for me there considering her implied to be Super Old age. Grabby's age is the limit for how I feel comfortable. Outside of that and I question the basic mores of a character. That'd probably be the only route I'd ever avoid. xD
I definitely want to see more Snake and Toad kids though, since they all seem adorably crazy. I especially want to see more of Suki and Big Steve! Especially Big Steve. He's too fantastic for words. ^^
I think, Potsdam aside, the only character I don't want to see as an available romance for Wolf Hall (or Toad Hall) would be Luke, unless he is also available for a girl's hall as well. That's just a personal bit err though.
Also, as a person studying theatre, I would love to be involved in the musical! I'd also like to learn more about the other clubs that the school offers. Surely they don't just have Choir, Sports, and Theatre! ...At least, I hope that a school full of magical and creative beings would have more that than...
I'm also pretty curious about Blonde Boy from Green class. I tried to find him again, but he never popped up. That just makes me more curious, though! >.<
Well, I'm definitely excited for the upcoming game. ^^ Good luck working on it!

That reminds me... that one girl... with the dark purple hair.. I forget her name now... it's like on the tip of my tongue... who was she again and wasn't she a snake also?
EDIT: Oh I remember, Raven was her name, I'd like to see her also! And some other professors too would be nice.. maybe one for each magic color, no?

I totally agree with the hopes of being able to join some of the other clubs.
Also thought I would put in my two cents for hoping to be able to pursue William in the same game as being able to pursue Damien - it would make for a nice dynamic there I think. And I think a Wolf would be good for William.

All ideas are amazing, but I wouldn't like to date Postdam (is that how we write her name?), and someone said Manuel name, he's so cute *-* If I could I would steal him for me XD And more clubs ya!!!
When I was playing the Horse Hall my brother wanted to play, he was so happy when I told him there was going to have Wolf Hall XD

See I don't have a problem with Potsdam for her age. I like vampires and Merlin and Dragons-in-human-form and such things so her being 200+ doesn't squick me in terms of romance. Though her being her and obviously playing at both dangerous and adult games is interesting. She's worldly, plus secretive and more than willing to sit back and watch the action play out between her students and I like that about her. In ways that Grabiner isn't because of his past.
I don't mind if she's never a romantic option (she would make a very interesting side line character that is always there, but never involved intimately), but I'd love to see how she reacts to a PC that knows and has grown up in the magical world giving her a romantic valentine versus a wild seed. I'm intensely curious to see how my Stu's interactions with her will change based on his just knowing more about the magical world and how important promises and vows are.

Something I noticed about Damien - if you don't take his path, you hear that he was expelled for doing something to a boy, could that be the PC for Wolf Hall?

Ahh I can't wait for this to come out! Despite the great reply value of Horse Halls I seem to have got through it quickly (probably from playing it obsessively for two days!) Would love to date William in the next one.

Well, I wouldn't like to see Postdam at her age as a romantically involved character XD. It would be like dating your grandmother or something O_o. But, since this is a magical world, I suggested (and now I do it again XD) the possibility of being able to date a younger Postdam. Something like a youth potion or similar XD
I also want to see the OtherWorld. You could go there with a magical artifact or spell that protects you, or Damien could take you there protecting you, I don't know...
Having more opportunities to use the spells that you learn (as others have said some posts before) would be a wonderful idea, too. Not only in Dungeons, but in the whole school life!
And more dungeons! Since you are going to be a Wolf, it'd be great to be able to sneak into dangerous dungeons and make troubles to yourself! XD

Wait, would the game take place at the same time as Horse Hall, or the following year?
