News From the Six Realms #19 – Fields of Chaos Edition

Hello all,

With last month now firmly behind us, hopefully it is on to better things. The release is well on its way to being finished now, all the writing will be done by the end of the week, and then it is just a case of coding it over the next two weeks to be ready in time for the Christmas weekend.

We're going to be changing a few things in the new year to see if it helps. The first will be an overhaul to the Patreon front page, as it has been the same for nearly two years now, and could do with a fresh coat of paint.

Also, while we are still a ways off the goal, I'm going to be hiring Yron to do a small amount of work in the meantime. He's a fan of Kassandra's, so he will be working on the upcoming fae content, and I've also asked him to focus on finding ways to add dominant content, for those who have been requesting it. There'll be a small amount of his work in the next release, with more to come in the future.

Art wise, Erick is putting the finishing touches to another gorgeous background as you can see above, this time for plains events. Keidi is working on the sprite for the first staff member, a female high elf, which I'm hoping will be ready in time for the release, but if not, will be in the next. MDN is currently working on the first of this month's CGs, which hopefully I'll be able to share with the backers soon.

That's all for today, more to come after we get the release out of the door.

New Patreon Goal – Monthly Releases

So I've been talking with our new writer, Yron, about what is possible when he comes aboard, and I've decided that with the extra help it will be possible to do monthly releases.

Content wise, each release will include:
- 25k plus words
- four or more new sex scenes
- 5-7 CGs

I'm hoping we'll reach the $5000 patreon goal next month, and if we do, I can hire Yron and get going. We'll need a little bit of time to set things up so they run smoothly, but assuming we do reach it next month, monthly releases will start in February. I'm looking forward to this, as it'll mean that I will be able to put out new content quicker, but also help out on the funding front as well.

Side Project Reveal – Melaina

Side Project Reveal – Melaina

Introducing the party's resident stuck up sorceress, Melaina. Fun fact - Mel's initial design was done by Yron, who felt the party needed a more typically good looking character, for people who like that sort of thing. 🙂

News From the Six Realms #18 – Introducing Roisin, the Nemesis System, Relationships, and Side Project Reveals

News From the Six Realms #18 – Introducing Roisin, the Nemesis System, Relationships, and Side Project Reveals

Say hello to Roisin, one of the game's first planned nemesis'. She is another underling of the twins who aims to usurp Rowan's position; an assassin-mage with a little something extra down below.

We are still working on the nemesis system, and it is still a ways off and subject to change, but I can reveal a few things:

First, each run will contain two nemesis' (although they'll probably be staggered). We'll probably give you the option to either choose which ones you want, or for the game to decide at random (although some might be conditional, haven't decided yet). One of the nemesis' will be chosen from a pool of "desirable" characters, and if the right conditions are met, they can be defeated and brought under Rowan's control. The other will come from a second pool of characters who aren't particularly attractive, but offer other bonuses for defeat.Each nemesis will attack Rowan in a specific way. Roisin's method, which will probably be popular with a few of you, is through Alexia. Lastly, each nemesis will have a special "bad end", should you game over when they are active.

We've also been looking into ways to address two criticisms that come up a lot:

Firstly, a lot of patrons have said they have trouble getting character events they want, and though the weighting as helped, it still isn't working as well as we would like. DM is working in a new system where instead of those events being random, the player can visit the NPC instead to trigger them, which will allow those players who want to see events with certain characters to do so easily. We'll start to implement that in the near future, as it requires coding and moving some current ruler events.

Secondly, in regards to patron requests for more dominant content, we are planning to give Rowan a "staff", that is, people who work directly under him (as opposed to the other NPCs who work for the twins). He'll be able to dominate these without the issues raised by dominating most of the other characters currently in the game. In addition, when our new writer Yron is working at the proper rate, we'll spend some time looking at old scenes and adding options for Rowan to be more active like the first scene, as requested.

Lastly, stuff is starting to pile up from the side project, so from now on I'll be doing one side project reveal per week. Lookout for the next member of Jess' party in the next couple of days.

News From The Six Realms #17 – Update, New Writer, Next Side Project Reveal, and More

News From The Six Realms #17 – Update, New Writer, Next Side Project Reveal, and More

Hello all,

Quite a few things going on at the moment, so I thought it might be a good time to do one of these. Progress on the next update is coming along nicely, and the current plan is for the next release to be out by Christmas Eve at the latest. It will include, as usual; a turn bump, more ruler events and sex scenes, a new job for Alexia, and more work on the orciad story line. Also a few surprises, which leads me into my next announcement...

I've found a second writer to work on the game, and even though we haven't technically reached the goal yet, I've set him to work on the next update. It is my good friend Yron (of The Eternal Feast fame), and I'm really looking forward to seeing what he comes up with. He has very different interests than DM, which'll make for a nice contrast in content. I know you guys have been asking for dominant Rowan content, and that is more his sort of thing, so look forward to that in the near future. For the time being though, expect larger content updates.

Moving on, it has been a slower month than I anticipated (might be the first one in a year where the Patreon didn't really go up), so unless things pick up dramatically, we won't reach 5k. I have decided to reveal the next character from the side project this month anyway (since I have a load of cool animation / location / enemy art that Erick has been working on in his spare time piling up), so you'll be meeting her in the next couple of days. She's a very different "type" from Jess, so if Jess doesn't do it for you, she might. 😉

Two last things before I go - firstly, there's an art CG pledge backer level now available if anyone is interested in choosing a CG to be commissioned every month, and secondly, the current CG poll is ongoing over on the Patreon, so if you have voting rights, you might want to get on that. The current leaders in the poll are the new Andras/Alexia scene, the new orc camp woman scene, and the second Rowan and Helayna scene.

Until next time.

Poll #21 – Alexia Job Poll #2 Result

The latest poll over on the Patreon was to decide the next job to be added for Alexia, either working in the forge, or the breeding pits. The results seemed pretty close this time, but when the double votes were added, we had a clear winner, and that was....

*drumroll*

Breeding pits! I'll be commissioning the job CG this month, and we'll be adding the first events for Alexia's new job in the next release.
