All pictures have been added. Thanks a lot again for all the texts, it makes the game so much better :)

Artimidor, would you be interested to continue the game with me for the next part or more ?
I'm still considering whether I want to continue or not. It took me 18 months to finish this part. So, I want to make sure I have users that ebnjoy the game. And I would like to bring some contributor to speed up the process. We'll see.

Added in the picture.

For info, I have fixed the final bugs and issues I had with the game.
I have sent an announcement to the Story nexus to announce this shift.

My focus will now be about implementing the Ciosatran dungeon. Once this is done, the first part of the game will be over.
I will start to advertize the game a bit more now that most bugs have been squashed.

Thanks everyone for your help.

Hi,

I have finally found a way to get a description page for the first time when you arrive in Klinsor and Ciosa (well, it's not strictly speaking just the first time as it is tied to the quests variables, but it should be good enough).
I have found some good enough description of the city of Klinsor, however, I was not able to find a good description for Ciosa. I would like a short summary of the city as a commercial city, big port, capital of the duchy and stuff like that. The entry in Santharia is either too detailed or not enough summarized.

So, I currently only put the picture as a nice reward for arriving in Ciosa. If you want to add a description, feel free :)

Done. It's now in 2 different pages :)

Title fully integrated now !

For the assault picture. I tried to modify the text to fit the picture, but I didn't manage to write a good escription that would explain why the picture is here. Feel free to change the text to fit for it and to add the picture (I already uploaded it to my own website) if you can.

Hi,

As a side-note, my nickname is "rominet", you can call me this way. "romvinot" is more my account username.

I integrated all the pictures. This is really nice !

Regarding the name, it's indeed, very generic. I like "Shadows over Santharia", because it's quite generic as well, and the sky is soon going to be filled with dragons, so that fits with shadows over the land :)

A title screen would be awesome ! Anything that looks somewhat fantasy with a big bad dragon would do the trick (it's not revealing much given you get a "ring of the dragon slayer" in the first few minutes).

Done. I have integrated most of the pictures in the game and it looks really nice !

The picture of Ciosa and Klinsor are still missing. I will create a new entry in these two places with a short overall description and no action. Then, I can put the picture there.

For the Klinsor market, I used the picture for the fishmarket of Ciosa. The market of Ciosa is a fishmarket and the picture is full of fishes, so I believe it fits better !

I didn't put the picture of the Threee Arcs Keep inside because I think it doesn't fit properly with the description. The borther Mallister are supposed to be more or less alone to repair the keep. The pictures is also full of dwarves. As the next chapter will be in the dwarf realm,m the picture will very likely be more appropriate there.

I didn't use the farmer_search_cow, because the page has already 2 pictures : the main picture for Woulton Wold, and the picture of the cow (once found), so it would have been a bit too much to have a third one here. We can re-use it for something else !

Everything else is there !

I see. i never used this option. Well, this is broken. Never mind about the theme, this is not what users will see. You can still debug  evil

What do you mean by "when you play the rooms" and "the page design of Fallen London" ?

The overall layout of the website (html pages) is fixed by the Story Nexus engine. The colros and graphics are templated and they provide around 10 different themes. I used this one as the most medieval oriented and nicer one. You cannot create your own theme though. Is that what you meant ?

By the way, I have an issue with the general picture of a location such as "Ciosa", "Klinsor", or even "Nolan's farm", because I don't have any place where I could put such description. I put the map of Nolan's farm on the page for the Inn which is the main building. But for Ciosa and Klinsor, I don't really know at the moment. It's something that is definitely missing but I haven't found a good way to show such things (be it picture or a general description). Still a work in progress.

Awesome. I'll make good use of them. They will make the game much more immersive !

Feel free to modify the text as you see fit, to fix the misspellings or the bad formulation. As long as you don't change the story it self, feel free to modify it without telling me.
12  Organization and General Discussions / Non-Santharian Stuff: Life, the Universe & Everything / Re: Game on Story Nexus based on Santharia world on: 24 February 2014, 22:07:20
Done. You are now an editor of the game. You can refresh your action points as much as you want. Be careful that the game UI also allows you to modify the text directly while playing. It also kind of break any html link set in the text (as clicking it now start the editor rather than send you to the target of the link), but be careful that normal users don't have this strange behavior.

Otherwise, you can click on "Create Your story" at the top panel and select Edit stories from Santharia. Then, you get in a big panel with all the stories sorted by location (the classification I did). let me know if something is not clear.

FYI:
- I have finalized the rewrite of the baveras encounter. Feel free to take a look.
- I have added an option (an expensive option) to re-specialize your character, allowing to avoid to get trap without any way to continue the game.
- I'm adding the picture slowly...

Can you send me your username on Storynexus (may be different or not from your character name on the game) ?
I can put you as editor of the game and you will have access to all the test.

Okeydokey, Romvinot - I guess I'm through by now with everything that has been implemented so far - yay!  cool thumbup
Yes, indeed. So, it took you more or less 2 months.

Overall it's a really fun adventure you've put together here and I've enjoyed it very much for the most part! grin Enjoyed it really quite a lot, very well done! clap clap clap
Thanks, I'm happy that you like it !

There are some hurdles for players however which I've already mentioned - the capacity problems that might seemingly lead to a dead end, even though I barely made it without further assistance. It's also a bit difficult for the player to remember where he/she got e.g. a candle when there's need for one, so this might result in travelling around unnecessarily spending valuable action points. An additional inn here and there also wouldn't hurt, e.g. in the western region. I'm also not quite sure when the Swiftsword missions were triggered, because most of the time it was all Stormcloaks missions for me, and no Swiftswords - if I were able to do missions there I could have improved my capacities much faster. But I don't remember exactly when these missions started. But as a matter of fact I did them all when everything else was already done and when I didn't really need the capacities that much anymore...
The Swiftsword quest line is hidden behind a challenge that has a random outcome (that is, if it fails it fails, if it succeeds, there is 2 outcome with probability 50%, one of them being to meet Lombard). I wanted to make it not completely obvious but I'm not sure it's really worth it, and I don't want players to miss the quest line. Not sure what to do here.

Quote
The game mechanics also make some situations look a bit strange. E.g. you can help the sick girl dozens of times, get a bonus out of it, and, well, she never gets better apparently... ;) So yeah, that's not really ideal, but that's difficult to change without altering the whole balance of the game - after all the player needs to do such things a couple of times to improve...
True. But I don't see a good way to propose such grinding gameplay (I need this grinding, otherwise, the game would last 1 week) with enough variety in the situations (avoid to put action of type "fight a wolf" everywhere) while staying believable.

Quote
Question: Is there a way to access the whole texts of the game? Or can you send them to me in a Word file or something? E.g. so that I can see how you changed the Baveras mission etc. There's also room for improvement here and there maybe. For example reading up on Ciosan history in the Astrendum (which is necessary a couple of time) might show different texts, so that the player really learns something (maybe even combined with more pics, see below).
I can't send you the whole text as it is part of the platform and very cumbersome to retrieve everything (they should propose such thing though). I can make you an editor of the game, and then you will have access to the same things as me (and be able to break the game entirely :p)

Quote
BTW: I've updated the Manthrian map now on the site, adding Nolan's Farm in the proper font (see here), so you could use this new version of the map for the Ciosan part, thus making the map look consistent. (If you still see the old version, just refresh.) Nolan's Farm is actually located west of the Klinmor mine BTW...

Awesome. Thanks. Hmmm, the location is not exactly where I was expecting it to be. I'll have to modify a bit the paths I think.

Quote
Also: How about using other pictures from the site directly in the game, like the picture of the Yanth River, Ciosa, Brooding Jepp, Nolan's Farm, the "Welcome to Nolan's Farm" board pic etc. There definitely are a couple that could be used effectively to make some parts of the game graphically attractive. So how about putting some of those in? - If you want I can try to look through what we have so far and make a couple of suggestions where to put what. If we use such pics I assume they should have a width smaller than 510 pixels, as that's the width of the Ciosan map, and it just fits into the frame. I could prepare the pictures that way if you like. We don't have pictures for everything, but at least some key locations and events could be illustrated that way.

Absolutely. If I have your agreement, I can put some pictures which will make it much more pleasant indeed.

Indeed, there was one more bug that make you miss the last explanation.

Note that the fact that you arrive in Fang Julin is due to the previous bug. The encounter does not change the location. As you are supposed to start the encounter from Ciosa, you should finish it in Ciosa. Due to the bug, I had to activate the encounter for you, when you were in Fang Julin. It should not happen for other players.
