Meet the ROs!
First up is the broody boy, Alixer, who identifies as male and uses he/him pronouns. He’s native to Maveas and is the equivalent of 24 in Earth years. He also stands at 192 centimeters (6 foot 3 inches) and hates the color red. Rather unfortunate, given the circumstances.
Not shown in the portrait above is a thick scar that starts beneath his right eye, running diagonal across his nose.
Alixer is not always easy to get along with as he doesn’t mince words nor does he waste them, and he dislikes it when others do. Generally, he strays away from groups of people and usually does his own thing.
He specializes in stealth, wears basic all-black armor with a face cover and wields two double-sided knives.
He wasn’t in his cell for more than a day before you ended up captured as well. It’s been a while since he’s interacted with someone without hostility involved—needless to say, he’s interested to see how you adapt.

A lot of what occupies me with creating Royal Affairs is making it fully distinct to Crème de la Crème, while making their similarities satisfying in their own way. Some things - the shape of the school year, the outrageous boarding school setting - are mirrored, and the world itself is of course the same. But then there are other things where I'm at liberty to go totally outside the realm of Crème de la Crème - like extraordinarily ostentatious Hearthlight celebrations!
Relatedly, I've almost finished coding Chapter 4, with just a bit of difficulty balancing to do, and then I'll be getting writing. I'm currently at nearly 90,000 words!

i’m so excited to see how n’s route is gonna play out. a’s my main bc of that good oblivious mutual pining bff to lovers shit 😩👌🏼 but if i was being unbiased, i’d say i would risk it all for n. you mentioned once that you struggled with creating them but i hope you know that the way you created their personality was perfectly balanced. their kindness, charm and playfulness all mesh so well and so naturally that despite being in blane’s shadow, they still stand out in their own n alves way (thank you for the lab scene btw. a whole blessing) and their banters with blane, the way they can get blane to shut the fuck up are some of my favorite parts of wts
so i guess what i’m trying to say is i would murder everyone who went on a date with n just to talk about blane
omg this is always the best kind of message to receive, thank you so much! i have a feeling that N will be the least popular ro which makes me so sad, but asks like these is why i’m grateful that they exist, regardless of how many people romance them <3

i am thrilled to find out you are writing another CLDC themed game! Loved CLDC so much, from the setting, eloquent writing, and colorful cast! We get snippets of how each RO is like when we romance them, so it makes me wonder how each RO would act in a long-term relationship? After Gallatin and stuff. And what would their stats page be like? (Wit, flair, poise, etc).
Here’s an answer about their stats/how well they’d do in class! Long term relationships... I think it depends a lot on the MC and where they ended up by the end of Creme de la Creme - the characters’ approaches to relationships are quite changeable depending on the relationship itself and how the MC approaches them. Which I know is a bit rambly, sorry!

Name: Dináh Sørensen
Pronouns: She/her
Age: 21
Sign: Taurus
Apparence: Hazel eyes and light red hair
Gift: Persuasion
Familiar: European starling (Sturnus vulgaris)
Familiar name: Ualaimkípia (in honor of the Death Bird Goddess, part of the pantheon of Brazilian gods from the Tupi tribe, she eats the souls of the dead who fight the shadows [aka niewkó] and is often invoked to ward off danger; she’s equivalent to the Greek God Hecate).
Life Motto: “Live boldly. Live large. Live truthfully”
Biography:
Dináh decided to work to save money for college. Her dream is to be an architect (she loves old buildings and the idea of creating homes). That’s why she smiles and is super fake to the customers (unless they start being jerks), just for some big tips.
Sal is super cool too. Probably the only boss she ever had that can deal with her sarcastic sassy mouth off the clock.
But, why she’s so bloody curious? Why did she open that goddamnit cage? She regrets it very, very, very much.  But she doesn’t take it out on Ualaimkípia. She can’t be cruel to animals.
Yet, she isn’t really curious about her parents. Thinking about what she didn’t have made her sad as a child. So she decided not to care. And not to care she did.
Besides, she has a mother, right? Drew. That’s her mom. The one who raised her, held her hand, taught her how to defend herself. The one who was there. She just doesn’t think about the dead one anymore, Lucia, because she can’t do anything for her now. Lucia isn’t here.
Of course, Dináh was upset with Drew for not telling her anything about OFNA (or about how they might be connected with the end of her biological family). Nevertheless, she understands her. She really does. So maybe she will forgive her completely after some time (and that’s a very rare thing. Dináh doesn’t forgive easily).
When the twins came to her house, she didn’t open the door. Listen, when you consume a lot of media about psychopaths and killers you just DON’T open your door to strangers that talk gibberish, okay? Especially if they sound charming. Dangerous people don’t look crazy.
She only worships Britney Spears, okay? So this Ornithologisomething cult isn’t really her thing. And she doesn’t trust them. AT ALL. How can you bring someone by force to some weird place and expect them to be cool with this? Only someone with “cockroach blood” (aka too passive or afraid to do anything), Stockholm Syndrome, or without plans for their future would accept this. She ain’t none of that.
Quite the contrary. Dináh ain’t a coward and pushover. Or unfair, because that challenging behavior of hers isn’t intrinsic, but provoked.
And, like, you kidnap people with powers that might become dangerous and expect no retaliation over time? Good luck with that.
When not kidnapped, Dináh is generally quite friendly and smiles easily. She ain’t a complete jerk, but she just doesn’t smile at people she thinks it might be a potential danger.
Yet she thanked Elliot by reflex after he searched the bizarre room she’s in. Sometimes she ends up being polite to people she forgets she’s hating. BUT THAT’S NOT GONNA HAPPEN AGAIN. She thinks.
Obviously, she clicked with Simon. Despite feeling that his escape plans are doomed to failure (and even hers at the present time, unfortunately), she feels better knowing that they are on the same page. Besides, she admires his courage.
Dináh likes classical music (you didn’t expect that, did you?) and plays the violin. Her favorite composition is “Winter”, from The Four Seasons Concerto by Vivaldi. Anger management was always a challenge for her, so her teacher had suggested this activity (after she hit a boy who had stolen her notes. It was a mess. Drew was called to the school, and surprisingly, did not scold her. When the teacher said that Dináh "could not solve her problems with her fists", Drew whispered to her that "she could try").
It didn’t help much, she still has difficulty dealing with unpleasant feelings, but she likes playing.
Though she spent little time at the OFNA, Dináh already feels that she can become a nutcase if she continues being kept there. She hates feeling “suffocated” and secrets. Being at OFNA definitely won’t help to keep her sane.
But, oh well, maybe she will at least meet her daddy Elias, right?
Her hobbies include: play the violin, drink wine at the end of the day, play chess with the old lady next door, like Britney Spears’ posts on social media.

The Dragon Age series is definitely a fun RPG to get into and DA4 is getting prepped for development, so now does seem a good time to explore it if you're interested in trying a new series. Just know Dragon Age Origins is a bit dated with its combat and graphics as it is both the first and oldest entry of the series (but it still got a really strong story).
Thank you so much for the info, I’m sure I’ll have fun playing.
Thank you for your ask! 💛

Before you get the chance to figure out what's happening, they are already kneeling beside you.
They gently raise your chin with their fingertips, to look at you, as if it would be the most natural thing to do. Their piercing, golden gaze is steady, in spite of the worry it carries within and, in an instant, you're caught between the urge to move closer and the instinct to run away. Like a moth greeted by fire.

Speaking of adopting people sent to kill MCs into friend group, I remember doing that twice in Dragon Age Origins: once with Zevran and then with Nathaniel. With Nathaniel, after I said I wanted him in my group, he immediately objected and pretty asked if I normally worked with people who tried to kill me, which I loved the fact Bioware put the option to say half of your friends had wanted you dead. He responded incredulously "I don't know if that's a vote of confidence or punishment".
Ah, I love this! Thanks for the game rec too as I haven’t played Dragon Age, and I have a bit of time to do so.
Thank you for your ask! 💛

ahhhhhh girl if not spoilers I NEED to know
Athalia/Asher: Would propose by saying, “everything I wanted to say I have written down... but I’m not going to say it, not because you don’t deserve it, because you do... but me and emotions don’t get on well... but I’m certain I want to be with you.”
Blaire/Blaze: Would originally have the idea to propose where them and the MC first met, but they met at university so it’s not the most romantic place. B’s one to remember little things about the MC so they’d take the MC to their favourite spot, thank them for loving them even with the fact that they’re a werewolf and then take out the most beautiful ring to propose with.
Kiana/Kaidan: Would say, “I went to literally every jewellery store for a ring, then remembered the person I’m dating has all the money in the world so the ring I’ve got probably wouldn’t be good enough... but anyway.... I’ve never been one to think about marriage before, yet a human was the one to change that - so, Rich Kid, I’m literally shitting myself here but, will you marry me?”
Phoebe/Phoenix: I think P would be extremely nervous so they’d use their powers to calm them down, and so they can use them for the perfect proposal. They’d propose at night so they can show off a really cool light show and fireworks display, get down on one knee with shaking hands and then propose.
Thank you for your ask, lovely 💛

Novus and Its Inhabitants.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
The Eci.
A sentient species residing far beyond the Milky Way, in a galaxy they call Novus. The Eci could be described as metallic, reflecting light off of their skin, hair and eyes. That light could be a specific color or a myriad of colors.
On average, they reach 260 centimeters (8 foot 5 inches) in height and live for one thousand years. The taller you are, the older you are, the wiser you supposedly are—thus, the tallest individuals are the ones in positions of power.
They particularly value knowledge and most of their society is fluent in multiple languages native to other sentient species, including languages from Earth.
Tumblr media
The mainland.
Eccel is the origin of the Eci species and the home of its monarchy.
Beneath the current queen’s rule, there is a single, monarchy-elected minister in charge of each planet’s people. They are expected to report everything to the queen and look to her to make decisions, never making choices themselves.
The greatest number of replicants—androids with an eerie resemblance to humankind—live on Eccel. However, most of them are just servants to the aristocrats and do not live a free life.
Tumblr media
The topopolis.
Licis is an artificially constructed rotating habitat (example) surrounding Eccel. It is home to endless lakes, rivers, lush valleys and meadows.
There is a catch: not a single plant or species of animal are native to the land, so the majority of what was brought over are now either endangered or already extinct. The powers that be, especially the monarchy, vehemently deny this as fact and have stated, “No fauna, nor flora, has reached extinction under the care of our scientists. Do not follow the words of heretics.”
It’s important to note that while they did relocate fauna from different planets, they brought only ones that would not pose a threat to society when assimilating and when interacting with residents. Carnivorous and/or dangerous creatures were left on their native planets.
Tumblr media
The rimworld.
Maveas is the planet that sustained the greatest loss with the construction of Licis. It lies at the very edge of the Novus star system and has been sucked dry of nearly all life. Once brimming with the same luscious greenery that spans most of the topopolis’ land, Maveas is dim and grey, the only lights in the sky the far-off sun and colors beaming off of both Eccel and Licis.
It’s home to most of the Eci’s lower class, as the cost of living on the mainland and its daughter-in-orbit greatly outweighs Maveas.
Those born native to Novus’ rimworld are usually shorter in height and their body reflects less light. There is also a growing amount of replicants relocating to Maveas, as it’s the one place where they are treated as equals.
Criminal and gang activity are at an all-time high lately, more than likely due to tensions between the monarchy and the residents of the rimworld.

Two years ago I shared my first game demo of what now has become Wayfarer. To celebrate, I am releasing two of my bonus content posts from my Patreon for public access!
These posts were voted for by my Patrons (thank you all!)
Tumblr media
The first post is Balanced on the Edge, a post-Chapter 1 short story that features Aeran and a female MC. This was originally written and released back in February for Valentine's Day.
Because I'm not a huge fan of writing in second person outside of the structure of interactive fiction, I decided to create a fleshed out MC specifically for this short. The story is considered non-canon, but within the realm of possibility.
You can read it here!
Tumblr media
The second post is a Creator Q & A I released back in March. My partner and I did a podcast-style discussion where I answered some questions submitted by my Patrons. We talk about Wayfarer's inspiration, game mechanics and other behind-the-scenes stuff.
If podcasts aren't your thing. there is a full transcript available.
You can find it here!
Thank you all so much for your support! It's been a wild year and I am really grateful to everyone who has played the game and followed its development journey. ❤️

Wanted to draw a separate nb!Oisein codex picture for the upcoming Twine version of The Nameless and sat down to do that this weekend. A little different from the side profiles, but I kind of liked that! 💜🥰

oof, I usually choose to go out in book 1 to get douglas route (or whatever it's called) cause I like him more than bobby, but now I have to make 4 more walkthroughs because that part where they mention the kiss is so deliciously angsty and I wanna see more. but my favourite thing was when m told bobby to lose the pet name, that was hilarious 💜
Yeah, Bobby was certainly bringing out their finest form and the LI's were not all happy about that, hehe! :D
(F's reaction has to be one of my faves!)
Douglas' branch will DEFINITELY be having it's moments too, just in different ways...I'm very excited to write those scenes...
Thank you so much for the fun message! :)

Hello! I hope your day is going just great! I’ve been a fan of The Wayhaven Chronicles for about a year and I always wondered how N’s last name was pronounced? I’ve always pronounced like See-Well, but I don’t feel like that’s correct haha
That is correct, yes! Sea-well :D
Thank you so much for the ask! Hope your day is going great too :)

Hi Sera and Nai, I hope this message finds you well! I'm primarily a Nate-romancer so I have to say I'm swooning hard at Book 3 so far - but I also liked the little angsty moments surrounding the detective's humanity and fragility! Would this influence his feelings significantly towards the detective wanting to become a vampire or he firmly for/against (obviously if this is spoilery then don't answer)?
I don't really have any other questions or comments, I just hope the rest of the process for book 3 goes well and that you and yours are happy and healthy! I can't wait for the future of Wayhaven! <3
Oh, this could get super spoiler to answer! The conversation of the MC becoming a vampire is definitely one that will pop up and each of the LIs will have very different views on it, influenced by a variety of things (such as how well they've viewed supernaturals, how the book arcs have gone, etc).
So yeah, you will definitely find this out but I don't want to spoil this ;)
Thank you so much for the ask, though! :)
