Update 18.06.06

Update 18.06.06 content:
- Two new events with Tsubaki. Requires 100 relationship with her and previous events done. Starts at the sleeping chambers by talking to her.
- Continuation of the main story line when talking with the King of Dorgania about the fragments. There are two new quests at the end that can't be done yet, but there is a clear message when you reach the current end of the content. The missing content and continuation of the main events will be added within the next few weeks.
- New village Siriveta in Dorgania. Has a dungeon with a lot of enemy types that can captured, to make sure you'll definitely have enough at your monsterhall. :D And farmable iron, coal and mithril ore.
- Siriveta also has a general store with some items that are otherwise hard to find or scattered around too many different places. This is supposed to make things easier for players that have advanced the story far enough to be in Dorgania.
- A trading option is now on Calterburry at the overview map, to trade hops for beer. This fixes my mistake of forgetting to add a brewery to do this in your own country. ^^
- Characters that aren't unlocked yet at the CG room have a hint button now, which will tell you the location for the start of the event

Update 18.05.23

Version 18.05.23 content:
- Guards in the castle of Kagabangui will now demand proof of your heritage before letting you to their king. You need to have the royal crown as proof.
- The king will have several options in his dialog including:
-> Domestic affairs - 3 dialogs about different topics, which can increase your relationship to Dorgania or increase/decrease it with other people based on your replies.
-> International affairs - 4 dialog options, including an option that will give you a quest after which the border between Central and Dorgania gets opened.
-> An open border will enable trade with Dorgania. This will also increase the relation with them.
-> Dialog options for the fragment mainquest and the quest with the vampire from Mike in Kagabangui become visible when you have the necessary quest. The fragments quest isn't continued yet, but the quest with the imprisoned vampire can now be finished.
- The queen gives you a quest to take care of deserters.
- Trading on the overview map with Amagal is also possible now. Though they are only examples at the moment. I plan to put some more work into this in the future and add trading with Begus as well. The trading should give more worth to resources and let you get some easier and faster.
- The relaxed or strict trading policy choice in the dialog with Theremis will affect the trades on the overview map with the other countries.
- Closed borders will prevent you from trading.

- Using recipe items in the inventory will now show you all recipes in it with the items you can craft and the resources needed for it.
- The Headmaid's blowjob scene can now be re-played by talking to her in the secret room.
- The walkthrough has been updated.  
The new version is uploaded only as "Update files only .zip" for now. After the troubles with the last update, I decided to make uploads this way first and only upload the full versions one day later.  Hopefully this will help to get some feedback additionally to the game tester, to prevent uploads of full versions with bugs. Thank you for your understanding.


Patreon news:
I decided to change the pledge goals to milestones that will unlock  optional content for the game.
The first change to the patreon goals were made yesterday. You can now unlock an event and scene with the Queen of Begus at $400 (not part of the normal political meetings), Character CG and first encounter with Kayelinth' mother at $500, and a hellhound village at $800.
Once goals are met, they will be replaced by other goals from the list below. The necessary amount can vary.
Please note that in order to pass the goal, it's necessary for the required amount to be proceesed at the end of the month. Reaching it for a short moment in the middle of the month does nothing. Also, there are always a few declined pledges, those also don't add to the final amount.
Adding the content to the game can take a while, depending on my own plans and how quick I can get the necessary CGs from my artists.

Future content for pledge goals:
- More slaves with scenes (repetitive)
- Bellatrix scene (the evil woman in the prison of Begus)
- New elf village in Dorgania  
- New Spite of Courage floors with unique boss monstergirls and scene (repetitive)
- Kayelinth mother sex scene
- Scenes with multiple girls (3 or more) (repetitive)
- Warmap female enemy leaders that can be captured
- Main girls dressing room. You can see the standing character of main characters and change parts of their clothes for within this screen. (repetitive - amount of girls and clothes will go up each month with this goal)

Bugfix version 18.05.09

Yesterdays update had a little issue, where a missing 1 in the code made the event with Glyntris impossible to trigger. I re-uploaded the windows version and the update files with a fix to take care of the issue.
If you downloaded the update yesterday, you can use the update files to fix it without having to re-download the entire game again.

The Mac, Linux and the browser versions are not updated yet, as I had to re-uploaded the fixed versions on all places today. They'll follow now.

In order to ensure the public release will be as bug free as possible from now on, I'm currently considering several steps.
- I used to have a "game tester room", from which players could get immediately to the new events. In this case, it worked when the event was played this way but not in the normal way. That's why I won't use this option anymore.
- I'll make a post later to recruit for new game tester.
To be a game tester you need to have either Skype or Discord, to join the game tester groups there. Usually when I post the test versions there, I need at least a few people to give their feedback in ~24h. Therefore it's not necessary to be online a lot or for a very long time, just a bit every day is enough in order to see when I post the test version.
- I'm considering to make the uploads "Update files" only at first, and then upload the full version a while later when I received further feedback. This'll make it easier for myself, as uploading all different versions to several places takes almost 2 days.

Also, I'm having issues with mediafire again. Most likely will I stop uploading there and rely on HiDrive and MEGA for those uploads.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

Update 18.05.09

Update 18.05.09 is now up for the Windows version and in the update files. MacOS and Linux version will follow.

The update contains:

- The second path for the events with the prince and the servant in the capital of Dorgania. There is a hidden switch above the events location, as shown in the screenshot above, which lets player reset the event. This is for the sake of people that did the first path for the event last update when there wasn't a choice, but want to see or prefer the other option.  

- CG scenes for the good path of the slaves Chieko and Glyntris (white hair wolf girl and green hair elf with green wings). The scenes can be seen at the brothel or at your castle when they're your maids. The scenes at the castle require the secret room to be known to you, and for Glyntris you need to know about Ebron as well.

Update 18.04.23

 Update 18.04.23 is now up at Gamejolt, MEGA and HiDrive:
(Mediafire is missing due to connection problems)

- Red Imps have new CGs and dialogs, similar to the grey Imps last update.
- A new slave can be bought at the slaver in Sunee. She can be send to your dungeon, the brothel or your castle.
- The sex scene with the slave Miyako has received additional CG edits, so that she still has the cum on her chest if you released it on it during the oral scene before. The edited images can also be seen at the CG room.
- There are three new events in Kagabanghui. Two short ones and one a bit longer. In these events, you can help poor people to improve Brad’s trust in you, as his trust in you will be needed in a future event.  (The longer quests is supposed to have two possible routes, but currently only one is available. This route requires you to have 8 eloquence with Ryen from the training with the succubus. The second route will be available in the next update as an alternative. The result is the same, so don’t worry about missing too much.)
- Changing text speed and toggle auto-saving is now changed at a book next to your bed in the castle. (It’s the book that was previously in the entrance hall for the text speed).
- The “toggle auto save” option is no longer in the main menu. The list of options in the menu was also increased, so that all options are visible at once without having to scroll down first.

Update 18.04.10

Update 18.04.10 content: 
- New event with Kayelinth in Lalizan (Dorgania). Starts when talking to the the guy in the top right area, inside a fence and near a new chest. Requires Kayelinth in your party and 1500 gold.   
- New grey Imp battler images and slightly changed dialog at the monsterhall. When you give the Imp at the monsterhall Iron with 80+ relationship, you'll unlock a second CG. [Red Imp also has a new CG, but it's not in the game yet.]
- New warmap battle after the forth battle where you capture Lind. It can be repeated endlessly and gives a bunch of supplies and resources. This is supposed to help the lack of resources due to the limited battles so far. The 6 enemy troops have exactly as many troops as your first 6 units. But you can still overpower them easily either by taking advantage of unit classes/bonis, by having 7+ units, or by having the better upgrades to make your units stronger.
Please let me know if you think the amount of resources obtained from a victory is worth the fight, or if it needs to get increased.
- I added a book at the entrance of your castle in Aldlyn, which allows you to set the message text to appear immediately instead of slowly appearing letter by letter. You can see the book's location in the screenshot above. I'll make a poll on patreon and gamejolt later, whether you would like to have this as default for new games, or keep it the current way.  
Known warmap problems:
- The HP/AP bars sometimes don't update themselves to show the correct amount of HP and AP.
- Enemies occasionally attack units in wrong locations, outside of their reach. I think I know where to find those problems, but couldn't find the issue itself yet.    
About the long delay:

The last updates have already taken longer than the planned 2 weeks between updates I used to have, but this one has been especially slow. The reasons are a mixture of different things.    I know that I was working too relaxed and little right after the last update when I had enough time, not getting much done, and then I had less time and cursed myself for not using my time better before. That lack of time management due to stuff like flexible working hours and other obligations have been bothering me for a while now.
On the other hand, I was also having a hard time bugfixing the warmap. Players won't see a difference, but a lot of the system was re-worked to make sure the future battles can be added quickly and everything will work flawless. But even after many hours of work parts of it are still bugged, which was incredibly frustrating to me. And that frustration caused me to spend less hours working on the game than I usually do when making normal events, since I „gave up“ and did something else when I hit a dead end again.
I'm personally very dissatisfied with how long this update has taken, and how little new it gives to the player at the same time, even if the content itself turned out well. That's why I'll aim to get back to the bi-weekly updates and push myself some more again.
As I've already proven by doing so before, it's not a matter of „rushing“ myself or anything, but a realistic time frame if I take things serious enough.
My apology to all the people that were patiently waiting for this update for so long.

Update 18.03.06

The new update 18.03.06 is online and contains:
- New CG scene in Ebron. Requires the main story to be advanced to after the new dialog with Varea, and the event with Phraan picking flowers. Then you can meet Eloen outside at Ebron with a male elf in front of her. After the dialog there, you need to leave and re-enter the map to continue. You can then find her west of Ebron, where the path leads to another small forest at the storage building.
- Varea has a new dialog after you found the empty chest in Sunee. She'll give you two new quest.
- Lalizan, the poisonwood keep, the El Arma Gravesite, Lualombo and Sinasoka in Dorgania are now all accessable. The last 4 of these 5 have dungeons for the new main story events.
[Riddle solutions in the walkthrough, if needed]
- The second quest of Varea brings you to the Yang Tower. If Chiyo's Magic Knowledge is high enough, you can repair the teleport. The event there include a part which requires Mirel and Elly.
- The NPC's in the new areas have mostly nothing interesting to say yet. They'll receive more dialogs and quest in the future updates.
- Several new enemies were added, the most interesting one should be two Salamander girls, which change to their nude version when you've done enough damage. Give some special love to the artist of the new monstergirls shawn1013 at !​

- [The new quest "Fragment Hunt" can't be finished yet, since the events at the capital of Dorgania Kagabanghui aren't done.]
- [If you downloaded the version 18.03.05 yesterday or the day before, please update your game. The files were buggy, that's why I made another upload with the version 18.03.06 with all necessary fixes.]

Upcoming changes in the next updates:
- The warmap is still bugged and will receive some special care from me now.
- The new areas still need dialogs and events to fill them with life, so that will be a priority.
- Finishing the new quest by adding the events at Kagabanghui
- Continuation of the events in Amagal with the King and the Earl.
