Well it’s finally published. No thanks to the fucking site fucking up every five seconds.
Anyway don’t know when the other part will be finished, but for now in its current state, it is done.
I also believe I fixed the link weirdness that happened in the 11th hour of going over this. Hopefully there isn’t anything else major that I missed. I’m sure someone will tell me if there is.
A few extra things.
For anyone who hasn’t paid close attention, the story itself is basically a very very loose reboot of Legend on Infinite Story. Another story where I had plans for a sprawling epic, but didn’t quite achieve what I was going for.
I always wanted to redo it, but I sort of hate going “backwards” hence why I don’t do too many sequels. Well this one not only is a reboot of Legend, but also a sequel to Innkeeper, so I just broke all the rules on this.
Why did I make it a sequel to Innkeeper? Well because I wanted to have at least ONE fantasy setting that wasn’t a crapsack world. Plus Innkeeper wasn’t tied to any of my other stories and I wanted to change that, oh wait, said too much about that part.
Plus Innkeeper had some of the world building already done and I could add on to that, making writing a whole lot faster (relatively speaking).
Getting back to Legend though, I of course used some of that world too though not as much as I thought I would. The main part was Holgard, which was the main city in that story.
If you’ve read through Legend (and remember anything of it) you’ll see where certain storylines and characters are reused, though due to the fact that I only focused on the rogue character and this version has no game elements like Legend, you’ll also see how things have been changed, sometimes greatly.
But enough of all that boring behind the scenes shit, here’s the more exciting cinematic ad:
Endure the dangers of living in a fantasy world!
Be part of the problem because hey everyone else is!
Experience the life of an outlaw!
Experience all the odd twists and turns in the life of crime!
Experience multiple ways to die ranging from horrible to REALLY fucking horrible!
Experience the joys of performing despicable acts ranging from (but not limited to) mundane murder to slavery!
Have sex with several lovely ladies, human and non-human alike with the potential to romance them and even make them your waifus!
Have the inclusive option of choosing your gender and orientation! LOL JK This isn’t a fucking CoG story, you silly faggots!
Twelve different epilogues, and one with a very special extension!
Rise from a small town thief to become everything from a smooth criminal overlord to a law-abiding jack off!
Even travel through fucking time!
And probably a whole bunch more stuff.
Enjoy. (Or don't and fuck you)
For a moment I thought my eyes were deceiving me. I guess this is my sign to not make any plans for the weekend that involve venturing outside.
Bonus Waifu Hunt Mini Game!
There are at least three “non-epilogue” endings that result in marriage. (Or in the case of two of those, something similar to it)
Be the first to stumble on any of them and win 10 points for each!
(Feel free to PM me if you bother to care for your fellow CYSers about spoiling things)
I say that after what is like seven hours of non-stop perhaps snail-like reading on my end, this story has been a rollercoaster to say the least.
What a dangerously cruel world those characters live in. I'm sure the InnKeeper/Doc wouldn't have wished some of the potential outcomes for his son after his happy/best end epilogue he earned for himself.
So how much CYS tokens must be sacrificed for the gender fluid/neutral(?) options and for the subsequent rogue sister dlc expansion pack?
Yeah, I've seen it before on stuff like Madglee's Mommy story and JJJ's OMS.
Pretty sure a few of my other stories had had it very briefly before, never lasts very long though.
A lot of people seem to be getting epilogue 12 first.
Klint is an asshole and isn't worth trying to save. Lol.
Though Thara I think went through that path first since Annah didn't get stabbed and wanted to keep her around. (I think Wibbon's reasons were similar)
Yeah that path was the "Partners in Crime" path, the last one I worked on. I wasn't really as enthusiastic about doing that one since I had to go back through some of the Klyton stuff which I was sort of done with, so it's a little shorter than the rest.
Still, I ended up writing way more than I originally intended for it. Even added another epilogue since I only had 1 for it at first.
I ended up on a different path last night. Let's just say that I was unaware that Ghouls could be so endearing. :)
Yeah Lisa was fun to write.
To be fair, ghoul waifu Lisa is probably one of her better fates due to the protagonist.
5 for Klyton
5 for Holgard
2 with Annah
Okay, I like Isabella now as well. I'll have to rank her higher than Lisa now. Just how many potential love interests are in this story? The vampire shenanigans were pretty fun routes.
8 Epilogue ones, though 1 of those is a little different than the rest.
3 Non-epilogue ones.
Yeah I also got ending 12 as the first one. I really liked that after all the shit they went through they still ended up together. I noticed at the end the phrase ''I sometimes not having you around to assist like the old days'' I think you forgot the word miss.
Thanks. I'll make a note of the error on my list so I can fix it later.
Digit has found the first non-epilogue waifu via time travel and scored 10 points!
Still 2 more to find!
Mayana has found the second non-epilogue waifu via her travels of being a pirate and scored 10 points!
Still 1 more to find!
3iguy has found the third and final non-epilogue waifu via losing his soul and scored 10 points!
That's all folks!
Are you dreaming up interactions that have never happened?
Not like it can be taken back now, cuck.
I'm not even sure what phrasing I should have used. It seems like it wasn't anything I could find in my advanced ESL handbook.
I wish. Would have saved me a whole lot of time.
I'll give it a read.
Interesting that everyone seems to be getting the 12th (or 11th) epilogues first. I would have thought most would have pulled their own dagger out on Klint rather than trying to disarm him when he starts fucking with you.
I believe 11 and 12 were actually the last branches I finished, epilogue 6 through 8 being the first ones I unlocked.
Epilogue 6 was actually very underwhelming the more I think about it. The main character can achieve just as much in certain endings even without vampire powers.
I actually thought Epilogues 2 and 3 were the most underwhelming. Epilogue 6 at least implies the Rogue is might achieve more in the future and isn’t really answering to anyone.
Glad to say I wasn't disappointed by a new Endmaster story. I got epilogue 3, but it's time to go back and look for more. I'm curious if/how the Innkeeper universe will connect to all your other stories, which I'm pretty sure are already linked.
