    Check this message on the wiki forums.

    I would love to see the conversation between Janine and Wendis...

    I'm not sure if you guys are already considering it, but there's a Janine/Wendis conversation in Janine's palace.

    Other people will be able to help you change that decision. As for all the switches... yeah, they're a lot. If the game went on for too much longer, we'd hit the RPG Maker hard limit for switches. I have notes and I trust myself to keep the core stuff in my head, but I'm definitely guilty of going "Eh, I'll remember that" for details that then get lost. Fortunately, patrons and fans often catch things I miss.

    Huh, I scoured that place and only ever got the normal dialogue for her looking for this. Is there a specific trigger?

    Edit: switch was checked despite not having actually ocurred. Weird.

    Welp so much for version 0.999.9.9.9. Maybe you'll have to make an entire new game just to fit it all in.

    I feel like if I ever ventured into RPGMaker, making a spreadsheet with numbers and names would be helpful, just to look for things. But eh, I'm sure I'll remember to do that.

    It's finally time for the art update! Version 0.50.0 adds 28 illustrated scenes to the game, which is every scene in Chapter 1. More info and links here:
    https://the-last-sovereign.blogspot.com/2020/04/tls-0500-released-chapter-1-art-update.html

    We have a variety of scenes, but I tried to spotlight what makes TLS unique:
    [​IMG]

    Every scene in the first chapter is illustrated, even minor characters like the prostitutes:
    [​IMG]

    If you've ever thought about starting a new save, this would be a good time. I wonder how many people missed this early Yarra/Trin scene?
    [​IMG]

    Since this game will have hundreds of scenes, I decided that we want to have some real emotional and compositional variety, including a few clothed scenes when appropriate:[​IMG]

    And I'll give Yarra the last word:

    This update will go public in a week! Please look forward to it. ^-^

    The flesh colored fur on the Zirantian is throwing me off. I figured she had strips of fur along her sides and other places that would put the focus on her breasts and hips. While the less human Zirantians, like Antiala, would be similar to Khajiits. Having fur everywhere that's indistinguishable from skin just feels weird to look at.

    We considered multiple different levels of furryness for the Zirantian, but that's the one I liked best.

    Thankfully we can use reflect to view these scenes......although will we be able to reflect the joke scenes?

    Holy shit, I'd always just assumed the artless, text-only sex scenes in TLS were a deliberate aesthetic choice because the emphasis is more on the writing than the porn, like text games such as CoC and TiTS. I didn't expect you to actually go back and patch in artwork! Looks amazing!

    The joke scenes should be at the very bottom of the list. There's one image that isn't there, but you can see it first thing when you start up a new game.

    I hadn't found an artist who was the right aesthetic choice and was willing to take on a project of this length, but a long term fan stepped up to the challenge! Glad to hear you like the artwork. ^-^ Hopefully we'll be including more scenes with every update from now on.

    @Sierra Lee -- Replaying the game, and I'm just wondering: what happens to the Dragonic-Succubi if you trap them during the EndGames of the Gathering? -- If you talk to them, they say that their cold prevention wasn't cutting it, along with wanting a clean competition; add on how long it'd likely last, and the likelihood of the IKs writing them off as dead, and/or not bothering to look for/rescue them, makes it likely they'd be dead if you do.

    I imagine the succubi maintaining the castle and games would have retrieved anyone trapped before their IK left.

    Yeah, Tinman has the right idea. The game proctors cleaned up anyone trapped or lost after the end.

    It's time to announce that the update is public, but first: do we have any mods here? Could I get someone to change the thread title to advertise the new version? Something like:
    The Last Sovereign [25+ ILLUSTRATED SCENES!]

    -

    The art update is now public! You can download it here:
    https://the-last-sovereign.blogspot.com/2020/04/tls-0501-art-release-is-now-public.html

    I figure there's no sense going on too long otherwise. ^-^ Hope you enjoy!

    This is a big deal, thanks Sierra!

    Finally went through and it looks like I missed some. Is there a simple way to unlock more scenes (or shortcut to just see the pictures) or does it require going back and replaying the entire thing? Not that I never want to do it again but would rather wait until the entire thing is done first.

    Not like you go back multiple times to try and get the best outcomes... I totally haven't done that like 8 times, each from the start.

    I was doing that too a few times. Got tired of running around the entire world every time and talking to everyone ever after am update to find the 3 things that changed. Some scenes and outcomes are locked behind branching paths and multiple decisions. You literally cannot get everything in one run.

    Version 0.51.0 is out for patrons! The update notes are huge this time, so I'll just link them:
    https://the-last-sovereign.blogspot.com/2020/05/tls-0510-released.html
    The core of the new content isn't available to all saves, but if you've been working to free Eustrin, you can enter a new negotiation section. It's not Gawnfall, but it features characters old and new:
    [​IMG]
    If that's successful, you'll unlock a final state for Eustrin. This includes lots of happy NPCs and... other things:
    [​IMG]
    But that isn't all! I've mentioned that every harem member is getting their own unique sidequest, and two of those can now be completed:
    [​IMG]
    One of those involves an event that has been requested for a long time, which I'll just hint:
    [​IMG]
    This one should be public in a week. Meanwhile, I have something for those of you waiting! I'm participating in a big bundle of NSFW games that you can find here:
    https://itch.io/b/500/lewd-nude-rude-covid-boredom-smasher-bundle
    All of the games are 50% off or more, including a couple of mine. There's also a free (or pay what you want) tier, so this is a good opportunity to sample a whole bunch of games!

    Finally. People have been waiting so long to deal with those three. Time to use Brooms against them.

    Aka's quest may be bugged. I've started the necessary research, which according to Robin at the start of retrieving the material should be enough, but when I approach the smith Aka just says the mages need to do more research.

    The issue may be that the explanatory dialogue is unclear. Just starting the research isn't sufficient; it needs to be completed.

    Version 0.52.0 is out for patrons! We're up to 35+ illustrated scenes, with more info below or at the blog:
    https://the-last-sovereign.blogspot.com/2020/06/tls-0520-released.html

    TLS 0.52.0
    - New plot section.
    - Fixed Robin profile thanks to Lamsey.
    - New illustrated scenes: Lynine titfuck, Nalili 69, Orilise luxury, Fuckety Fuck

    I aimed to make this an intense update that takes the plot forward, including some old friends:
    [​IMG]

    And some old enemies. Whose fortress could the characters be infiltrating in this screenshot? Truly, it is an unknowable mystery...
    [​IMG]

    Anyway, I'm going to hold back on some of the revelations for you to experience yourselves. Expect just about all the different kinds of content you'd expect from TLS:
    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, the Steam summer sale has begun. If you're interested in any of my other work, all my games are 50-80% off:
    https://store.steampowered.com/developer/sierralee

    The update will go public in a week! Please look forward to it. ^-^
