TLS 0.39.2 Public Release


*Requires RPG Maker VX Ace RTP to be installed. If you don't know what that means, use the RTP link.

TLS 0.39.2
 - Numerous balance changes, on average making the vote requirements easier.
 - New/improved Kerannii expressions thanks to Bug Reporting.
 - Improved musical tracks thanks to Lamsey.
 - High Priestesses have been added to the waiting room for those who want to check influence scores again.

TLS 0.39.3
 - Minor changes. Only doing a release to clear up the fade bug.

Here's the public version of the Council! Lots of politicking, now in refined form. ^-^ While this version of the council should be a bit more forgiving and more nuanced, I still can't promise this is 100% final balance. I did my best, though.

Not a lot else to say. Hope you enjoy - I will be back to working! Expect the rest of the council as well as some other fun things in time.

TLS 0.39.0 Released!

New update for patrons! Version history updated, you know what to do, etc.

TLS 0.39.0
 - New update covering the first three days of the Ivalan summit.
 - Initial lamia battler swapped with improved version (thanks to Decanter for finding it).
 - Retroactively added custom sprite/bust/face for Vera (priestess of the Goddess of Magic). This is thanks to Bug Reporting, who also did the new characters this update.

TLS 0.39.1
 - Difficulty of the second vote has been reduced.
 - In addition, it received a special last ditch option to prevent unwinnable games.
 - Key bug that made Vote 5B too difficult is fixed.
 - The usual bugfixing and polishing.

Alright, I've done what I think is best for the game: split the summit into two parts. This way I can keep up release momentum as well as get feedback on some of the new things I'm trying with this update. It will be reminiscent of the Ardford Summit, but with this one I put the emphasis on social manipulation. Hopefully with some tweaking, this will be a fun addition to the game.

This update isn't a trivial one, though! It introduces all the High Priestesses you hadn't met before in addition to some important characters from other religious factions. In the votes covered by this update, you'll lead the religious situation on Arclent in one of several major directions, which will have a permanent impact on the world.

Because this update is a bit experimental, I have no idea what to say about when it will be released publicly. This blog is the place to check for major updates, while the progress will be focused on Patreon.
