Harem c7m3 out to Patrons, c7m2 out to the public!



And Harem c7m3 is ready for release!  7m3 you ask?  Harem has always done its chapters geographically, and Elan is big enough to be its own chapter.  So Harem c6m6 becomes Harem c7m0 retroactively, making what would have been 6m9 into c7m3.  And no, I’m not going to go back and actually change the old version!

Enough bookkeeping, let’s talk about content!  Cecilia has proven to be much more complicated and a huge writers block for me, but I was able to get through the first half of it.  Even that swelled to over 40 pages and over 50 images of content.  She’ll be finished in 7m4!  I’ve also been teasing that you’ll be able to train your women in The King’s Pleasure and the first two trainings are now available.  And the location poll is making it clear that you all want to return to Celee so I’m starting the questline to get you there.  Talk to Praetor Mercalius in Corsix to get that started.

Finally, this release is a bit shorter than I was wanting it to be.  My own time was reduced because of the holidays and none of my part time writers found the time to write at all.  We’ve had some frank discussions about expectations and requirements, hopefully this situation doesn’t repeat.  But enough with the talking, its time for the link!

Harem c7m3
-Change to numbering, Chapter 7 begun when the player entered Elan.  So c6m6 was the first release of Chapter 7
-Cecilia is a Shada, resistant to your power.  The Mask of Senesca will finally shatter that resistance!
-Claudia and Caliga seem to be vying for your attentions.  That could be useful, as are the people of Elan.  Time to get to work.
-To get back into Celee, you'll need permission from the Praetor of Corsix, and you haven't taken everything from that area yet.
-Your women may be great in bed, but there's always room for improvement.  Time to start training them in The King's Pleasure.
-5 new scenes added, 2 more coming for Legates+.
-123 new images added (more to come in Legate+ version)
-120 pages of new content added! (more to come in Legate+ version)

CG packs and polls will be updated in the next few days, probably with the Legate+ release

And with c7m3 out for my patrons, the public gets “what’s now being called” c7m2.  7m2 advanced both the Elan and Tenta’s storyline, with you learning more about the complex relationship between Caliga and Claudia as well as spending some quality time with Rhea or Alena and getting some good pillow talk afterwards.  Hiro was able let the player capture Rhea on the light path if you missed her before and brought her up to speed, as well as moved Laura along a step.  And Donnie/Tomas finally get a bit of action… but only if you allow it!

c6m8
Content additions
-The Elan story continues!  After a night with Kathleen in the inn, you return to Caliga and report what you found in Senesca.  Or at least, what he wants to know
-With several provinces open to you, there must be more places to collect Elemental Hearts to find the Eldari.  Phoebe will have several quests for you, and one quite enjoyable misunderstanding.
-Additional scenes with Rhea and Alena (Light and Dark, respectively) learning more of what the Tenta's do to women in their enclave.
-You took Laurent, Jacob's son, from Corsix.  Now you have Laura, a beautiful slave.  This will take a bit of talking to work out.
-Two Evocati wanted to commission scenes inside of the game, so both Phoebe/Kat's scene and a training sequence for Donnie/Tomas is their's!
-If you didn't capture Rhea in Lesser Corsix on the Light route, you can now get her into your harem after taking care of Vanessa.
-5 new scenes, 2 variants for Rhea's reconciliation, and 1 new Legate scene!
-148 pages of new content, 164 new images!

Bug fixes
-Fixed a repeat issue with Laura/Laruent and her father.
-Fixed an issue where could you get blocked out of the villages during Heather's quest.

Recon
-The Magister meeting now triggers immediately after Senesca.  It will trigger when you enter is basement chambers

  1. I've tried to download the new public version 3 times, and it won't download.:\

  2. Agh! Five times trying to download it, on my brand new extremely high end computer, and it keeps failing to download the new public file. It gets a large way into the download, and then fails. What the hell?:( I think you need to make alternative ways to download it.-_-'

    1. Odd. Anyone else having the same issue?

      I've created a 3 volume version of 7.2.2, uploaded it and shared the folder.

    2. Thanks. I'll try this to see if it'll work. The last time I tried to get it, it failed at about 900 MB. So dang close to completion.-_-'

    3. Damn it. Still doesn't work.-_-'

    4. It says it won't unzip because it's sort of a multipart file or something.

      Delete
    5. It is a multi-part file, 3 different parts. You need to download parts 1-3 and then unzip them.

    6. I tried that. It didn't recognize them as going together.-_-'

    7. ...wonder if a single file compression would help instead of a triple file. Not sure. That, or maybe a different download site, like that mega something or other. Forgot its name.

  3. ùif return to Celee, there is quite some things to do, first by order of importance, the Mountain people, as they are devoted to him and will follow his path.
    Then, the Swords having been given to him (shame that sword is not good enough to be kept at last some time, or upgraedable ?). In any case, Looking forward progress as it was and will be :).
    (If I can get trough the crashs, of course).

    1. Light or Dark run? Have you gotten Alena? Have you cured Vanessa and brought her back to Corsix? Have you recovered Samantha/Noemi?

  5. Odd. Was sure I told you that I managed to get it fixed.:\ Just had to download it with a different browser to get it to work.

  6. The fishing village needs to be added to the hearthstone as a warp option.

    1. Hmm.. it's just a small village, not really a town.

  7. Hey, if we're on c7 now, shouldn't someone update the .rdf walkthroughs included with the game? I know the mechanical .txt walkthrough is up-to-date (even if it still says 6m8 instead of 7m2), but those other ones are still stuck at c6m4, and are a bit confusing becase they include information that was apparently changed in later releases.

  8. I found something that you may want to fix. I got to the part in Rachel's questline where you're supposed to clear a mine as soon as it became available, but the entrance to the mine itself didn't show up. There was no indication telling me that the quest was unfinished or to come back after a certain point, so I assumed that the quest was bugged at first. Then as soon as I get back from bringing Vanessa to Corsix to "request leave", BAM! Cave entrance, nine-o-clock.

    I just thought I'd let you know how confusing that was, considering there was no indication that I would need to progress further at that particular point. I'd have thought that if that was the case, you'd have programmed it so that the questgiver -a representative of the lord who owns the mines- wouldn't show up until you could actually access the place he was sending you to.

    1. Yep, that is fixed in 3.1. You'll have to progress to the end of chapter 6 before Rachel's last quest becomes available and the map opens up.

      Delete
    2. There was also something similar with the Magister's quest, the one where you had to go to four smaller locations and help the overseers. It just wasn't as pronounced to due to the fact that A: I'd already seen it with Rachel's quest, so I figured I'd just finish it when I could, and B: The offered reward wasn't nearly as... enticing.

  9. Far from getting caught up, but I do hope that the harem is possible to complete... with a noticable amount of time before the end, so that it's possible to spend time with and change the personalities, and maybe appearance, of all the harem girls based on the path you choose, even the devil and angel.

    Speaking of the devil, a thought for how she could fall for the good guy path: as a devil, she loves cunning. The cunning way to get Rhea was an optional path, so maybe on the main path, the good Ralph could use some really underhanded means to defeat the villain he's up against at the time, something cunning but still fitting his good guy nature, much like how was done with saving Rhea. This would show that, goody two-shoes or not, he's not against getting his hands dirty in order to do good for others, letting the devil girl see there's more than one venue to be cunning with.

  10. Hello !
    After a quick browsing of your dev-blog, I couldn't find the information : how long (how many chapters) do you intend your game to be once it will be complete ?

    Thank you for your work

  11. Ok, I think I might have ran into a bug. I'm in Chapter 4, I freed Noemi and did all the other stuff in Lesser Corsix, it shows her in the party, but now whenever I go to the brothel in Eowen, she disappears, and I can't select her under "formation" or anything like that. But I can still interact with her at the Costra. Is there something else I have to do first, perhaps?

    1. So, I fixed that problem by going back to an earlier save and redoing everything. But, I ran into the same problem again in Ch. 5 after the trial. Noemi is now nowhere to be found. Do I just have to keep doing stuff and she'll come back?

      Delete
    2. Eventually yes, she goes to track down where they took Samantha. So keep going with the story (check the quest book if you get stuck) and you will get her back.

  12. Random curiosity, I recently came back to the game and have been enjoying it thus far. But I noticed during the corsix trial that while you can select Diana to go and try to aid you she will not leave for fear of Edwin. Is it planned to eventually have her able to help you during the trial, did I miss something earlier, or is that the current plan due to her role in the story?

    1. she is not needed for the trail but you won't need to worry about that later

  13. Have discordapp ?

  14. It won't let me finish the first westlands quest. If I try to finish the second and third orc camps, it suddenly kicks me out and says that I've completed the mission but Joan tells me that I haven't finished it yet. Reloading the save file does nothing either.

  15. When some one searches for his necessary thing, therefore he/she
    needs to be available that in detail, thus that thing is maintained over here.

  16. when will we play the new version? ne zaman yeni versiyonu oynayacağız

  17. So, I went from c5m1.1 to c7m3.1 and I noticed that Donna no longer has her focus, calm, revive, or heal II spells. Is that a bug or were they removed?
