So glad this hasn't been written yet, since it means I get time to read Rogues and the new Robin Hobb books before it comes out. ^_^

Woah! This is some impressive world building. Which game is this from? I'm adding this straight to my list of things I completely, absolutely, 100% need to read... But probably will never get around to reading because I'm too busy writing shit. >.<
The Fitz and the Fool Trilogy on 1/18/2019 10:55:05 AM
Yeah, my head just exploded.
Literally just found out that there's a third trilogy by Robin Hobb about Fitz Chivalry Farseer and The Fool, set ten years after the events on the Tawney Man trilogy... How the fuck did I not know this? This is literally my greatest dream come true!
(... And none of you know what the fuck I'm talking about.)

Edit: Right, that's fixed it... Thank you!

So basically, when I play the game, it shows up like this:
When you arrive back at the arena, you soon feel the heavy slap of a wooden sword against your back. You turn around and see Lula, grinning at you with a practice sword in each hand. "Hector, you are do fight with me!" she declares, throwing one of the swords to you, which you manage to catch by the hilt. "Mistress is say I good for run fast, but I am need to train fight more, so to kill people," the girl seems eerily upbeat when she tells you this.
You don’t really get a chance to respond to Lula’s request, since she takes a swing at you shortly after, which you easily evade. The girl is very aggressive in her fighting technique, quickly turning your spar into a competition of who can hit each other the hardest. Luckily for you, this makes her defence very clumsy.
During your practice, you manage to knock Lula to the ground by hitting her across the back of the legs with the side of your practice sword. That’s when you hear a loud and rather self-important voice speaking up from behind you.
"Is this how you slaves have fun?" he asks snidely. "Picking on little girls?"
You turn around to see a richly clad boy, about two or three years older than you. You’ve never seen him before, but his resemblance to Caecilia is so uncanny that you have no doubt this is the brother she told you about.
"I am not little girl!" Lula objects, getting to her feet. "And he is not picking me. We are do practice."%%GENDER%=%2%"You want I practise you?" Lula asks, sceptically looking the boy up and down. "Am thank you, but I stay fight Hector. She being more strong than you, I think."%%
%%GENDER%=%1%The boy seems surprised that Lula is standing up for you. He probably thought he was coming to her rescue. To be fair, you doubt that he’ s met any girls quite so fierce as Lula before. "Well, he should be practising with other boys instead of hurting a girl," he insists, picking up one of the practice swords himself. "In fact, he can practice with me."0GENDER%=%2%The boy seems surprised and offended that Lula would choose you as a sparring partner over him. He probably saw this as an opportunity to show off, and isn’t pleased that Lula insinuated he looks weaker than a girl. "You think so, do you?" he asks irritably. "Well, maybe she should be the one to spar me, and we can see for ourselves."%%
"Septimus!" you hear Titus calling from the stairs where he and Rhode are watching you train. "What have I told you about causing trouble?"
%%GENDER%=%1%"I’m not causing trouble!" his son objects. "The boy wants a fight, I’m just giving him a real challenge," he says as he turns back to you. "Come on, you’re not afraid of a proper fight, are you, boy?"0GENDER%=%2%"I’m not causing trouble!" his son objects. "This girl’s learning to fight, I’m just giving her a real challenge," he says as he turns back to you. "Come on, girl. Don’t worry, I promise I’ll go easy on you."%%
... But that 0 in the coding is not there when I try to edit the game. According to both RTE and the source code, that 0 should be a %%%%... But when I try to play the game, it shows up as a 0... My head hurts.
Ah, fuck. It happened again! on 1/18/2019 9:21:16 AM
... And I just realised what the problem was. Half of the gender related coding has a 0 in there instead of a %... I'm a fucking idiot. >.<
Edit: Oh wait... No it doesn't... It just shows up as a 0 when I play the game... Curse you RTE!!!
Ah, fuck. It happened again! on 1/18/2019 9:20:24 AM
Oh, okay... Well, if RTE isn't the actual problem, I think I'll just keep it and give everybody a blinding headache whenever I have a coding problem.
Ah, fuck. It happened again! on 1/18/2019 8:56:04 AM
I should really just turn off RTE... But, from what I understand, if I do that, I can't use bold/italics/coloured text... And my game needs bold, italics and coloured text. >.<
Ah, fuck. It happened again! on 1/18/2019 8:52:49 AM
(Also, to reply to your earlier question... Lula doesn't speak Engrish, she speaks Laytin.) ^_^

Now, the first gender related bit, where Septimus either says, "Is this how you slaves have fun? Picking on little girls?" or "Cute, But I'm afraid that won't get you girls far in the arena," originally wasn't working. I actually managed to get that part to work, but I have no idea how. >.<
