TLS 0.32.1
 - You can now customize flowers in the training yard.
 - Patrici now has her proper custom sprite.
 - Andra has a new faceset.
 - The cathedral library has been updated, though not with much.
 - So many minor fixes.

I hope this is the last really broad update and ones after that can be more plot-focused. Having said that, some of the pieces here have been long-awaited. ^-^

Also hope to be able to release publicly in a week, barring problems. My goal is to finish off all the minor side content I've deferred in the past, so as to focus more on new plot segments. Anyway, enjoy!

  4. So investments wise only the Givini orc merchant had adjustments? Just wonder since I heard there would be adjustments to the initial 500k investments for Chalice, Givini and Tak-Kan too.
    Haven't started from after the 3AW yet, and thought I wait until it's clear that the new initial investments wouldn't be changed again.

    1. No, some of the elven investments were adjusted as well. As for the 500k investments, their prices are unlikely to change, but their effects might. For example, the New Givini trade investment now has a positive impact on the Givini orc merchant.

      The initial investments aren't going to change in costs and haven't for a while. But the full impact of all investments will only be clear over time, so it's up to you when you want to do a major replay.

    2. Thanks for the quick answer. Well since the trade investments are one time offers I guess I will take them. Knowing you I have a hunch it will be beneficial, even if they drag you down short term.;)

  5. Super excited about this :) though I am wondering when this update will be released for the public? 5 bucks is not much at all, but no job and trying to provide for the wife and baby, things are a bit tight currently.

    1. The public version usually releases either one or two weeks after the Patreon version. So in this case February 2 or 9. But the two week testing periods are for extremely large updates or ones with some kind of technical problem. In this case, I hope it will be out in just one week!

      I'm happy to have you playing the game regardless!

    2. Very cool. I honestly cant believe that i am getting actually giddy about being able to play more content for TLS. with all the games out no a days, i havent been this excited about a game since Final Fantasy 3 came out for the SNES lol. Though, then i do get a job. I will be talking to my real boss ( the wife ) and see if i cant do the patreon thing for you :)

  6. Hope this isn't the end of Andra, I really liked her. Though she really did need a attitude adjustment, I kinda saw her as one of the thous people who hate others being in love because they never received it growing up, but with sex and stuff.

    1. Ah, I meant to write Andra more as someone persecuting others for her own problems that she's never been willing to deal with. In any case, while Andra will not be a political force in the future, you'll see her again!

    2. ya that's kinda what I ment, like "If I cant have it yall cant ether", just not as good with words are you though :P

  7. I can't find Wynn anymore after talking to her. Hatred at 0 but can't find her.

    Replies
    1. Her permanent location (pre-harem) is in New Givini.

      Delete
  8. Seem I missed some options :
    - Stark is still without body in my inventory.
    - Not possible to choose the next research.
    - Wynn has still 10 Simon anger points, not sure if tied but she also do not open her joining the harem.

    If useful, I can (of course) upload my save.

    This said, the game is still on for the same quality it was as time goes.

  9. I think I found a bug. When you mediate between the traders in the Feroholm area you can favour either Yhilin, Ardoheim or New Givini.
    The one you favour should get a bonus to its stats and the other a minus point. When you choose New Givini though, Yhilin gets the bonus instead and New Givini a minus point.
    The other two options seem to work as intended btw.

    1. This... does not appear to be the case as far as I can tell?

    2. I checked again too and you are right and the stats are correct. I think I compared the wrong save games. Sorry.;)

  10. Sho doesn't heal after the magekiller fight, she was still poisoned in Tak'kan.

    1. Haha, true. While harmless, it seems illogical, so I'll fix it.

  11. I found that you can choose multiple research projects at once, potentially starting all four of them.
    Is this a bug, the focus is evenly spread among all selected?

    1. Guys, when you report bugs that were quickly fixed in a Patreon update, you slow down development of the game. =/

    1. I use Discord to communicate with people for work. If you're asking if I have a server for TLS fans... sorry, I don't, but it's a commonly requested feature.

  13. So I decided to start over just cause I wanted to, and noticed that in chapter 3 when you raid that place in the rose district you don't finish the raid and instead enter it as a store that sell statues and a bed. I don't think thats suppose to happen.

  14. Just out of personal curiosity, is one of the muses for this glorious game, some of the books from the Black jewel trilogy by Anne Bishop? for some reason, parts of the game seem to give that vibe to me.

    1. Interestingly, you are not the first person to ask that! However, I only read that series after I'd been working on TLS for a long time.

      Delete
    2. I am not the reader that i used to be, but i really loved the series. the wife and some friends loved the series so much, that we have merged the book series with a Tabletop gaming system.

  15. I just wanted to say for the record... this game is both awesome and hilarious. You're an excellent writer with a great imagination. I look forward to seeing what you do next, on this and other projects.

  16. The Yhilin Brothels Reform investment doesn't appear in the Ledger (like my messages in this blog if I forget to choose the right browser lol-> I'm sorry that I always forget that).

    ReplyDelete
  17. How can i finish Yhilin's succubus and orc integration? I talked with all npcs orc and succubus territory and nothing.

    1. To get the Final Yhilin state, you need: to have visited the Tower (aka Extadimensional space) once and to have a good Yhilin Acceptance. So once you're back from the Tower, interact with the robed guy in the Teleportation chamber (that also unlocks a new slate of research).

      If he says that you have enough points, you just have to visit Ari-Yhilina. Here a list of some of the interesting things to and see.

      If he says that you don't have enough points, you can get more by doing various things around Ari-Yhilina. You can find a simple list here (check the section During Chapter 4) and more detailed info in this other wiki page (the stat that interest you is Yhilin Acceptance).

    2. Ohhh, thank you for the help. It's seem i don't have enough points yet. Well, i will try harder next time.

      Delete
    3. To echo Daniel, I don't have enough points either. Does this mean this playthrough has become a dead end? I've already invested to the point where I can't invest in Yhilin and completed both the Merchant Dispute and House Rose's request. I'm honestly sure what I can do now.

      Delete
    4. You don't need to get Yhilin to its final state now, you have all of chapter four to get enough points.

      Delete
    5. Oh, I thought it was required to continue onward. Thanks, Sierra!

  19. Love this game, but I admit I nearly had my eyes bug outta my head when I saw the cost to make the succubi self-sufficient in the tower.

    Is getting funding for that possible in chapter 4 or is that something work up to in chapter 5.
