    So, X amount of time voting for the activity, then you tell us what it did to the Princess' mood, then Y amount of time voting for the lessons, and then you do an update that shows us everything that happened?

    Sounds good.

    Plus, it says she is Duchess of Ursul, bears! Of course, you can trust bears. Not trusting bears can be grizzly.

    After some time/votes, I'll close the voting for that and declare a winner.
    Unless the activity involves choices (like some of the 'talk to so-and-so ones do), I'll then clear up any mysteries about what it does to our mood if there are some (due to talk to so-and-so)
    ...And then open voting for our study, and then show these things all at once in an update with the events or whatever.
    I vote this. Also, this thread intrigues me.

    Chapter 4, Weekend 2, Current Mood: Afraid
    or
    Hallo. My name is Elodie Nova. You keeled my mother. Prepare to teach me magic.

    Spoiler
    Show

    When we last left our pink-haired princess, she had decided...

    To let the Lumen who supposedly killed her mother (but apparently not in a legally culpable way) stay and teach her things.


    Take that, daddy! That's basically what Willful is in a sentence.
    That, or "screw your rules, I do what I want."


    But when he said 'as you wish,' what he really meant was 'I love you.' /Princess Bride.



    Anyway, now it's time for activities!
    Talk To Our Father: ???
    Talk to Charolete: ???
    Talk to Julianna, the lady we just saved: ???

    Attend Court: +2 Yielding, +1 Depressed, +1 Pressured
    Attend Service*: [/b] - Afraid
    Explore Castle: +1 Lonely, +1 Afraid
    Play with Toys: +1 Yielding, +1 Lonely, +1 Cheeful.
    Visit Dungeons* +1 Willful, +1 Angry
    Visit Tomb: +1 Depressed, +1 Afraid
    Walk in the Gardens: +1 Lonely, +1 Cheerful.
    Sneak Out: +1 Lonely, +2 Willfull

    And, of course, our current mood, for reference:




    Voting time: what shall we do this weekend?
    I'll let this run, let's say, until Noon or... About 5 hours from now, and then we'll vote for activities.
    I'll see how this works and how this time works. Things may be extened if no one's awake to vote.

    I gotta vote for:
    Talk to Julianna, the lady we just saved: ???

    If we just saved her to listen to what she says, we gotta hear what she has to say.

    As I understand it, we vote for a weekend activity, she tells us how it changes our mood so we can make an informed decision on classes. Then after we decide on classes we get the update. Which will show us everything. I can tell you this however, we've only taken our first step on the road to unlocking magic. That's why we need more Accounting.

    Accounting and Court Manners, get my vote. I doubt anyone else is gonna suddenly change there mind and vote for the latter, but I like having the options those first ten points give.

    Accounting sounds good, but I still think that using bonuses is a good idea. So I say we take Reflexes as the other one.

    Right. I'll be showing what she says when I do an update...But taking time and doing an update for that scene alone bothers me, particularly for later weeks, when we won't even get a talking scene, but just
    "We went somewhere. We felt X."

    And then doing another update. That is wasteful.

    Agility-Reflexes sounds like a good class we should take. Why are we voting for taking Accounting, though? Shouldn't we try to learn the more directly useful skills first, like courtly behavior, weapons, and other things that will probably prove very useful to survival?

    Deme mentioned somewhere it was one of the key skills for getting access to Lumen. Since we seemingly strongly desire to be Magical Princess Elodie, we study Accounting.

    This is true. You need either a Good Accounting Skill or a Good Presence skill to unlock Lumen. And we are currently taking a penalty to learning Presence. There is also the option of trying to kill the guards, but I've never tried that, and it seems like it could possibly end in Elodie's death.

    Accounting sounds good, but while we stimulate our brain we should not forget to exercise so Reflexes is my other vote.

    Also, if you're good at managing the finances of the kingdom, you have a better chance of winning the loyalty of people who can protect you against assassins. Every little bit helps...though I'll admit, that it's kind of a stretch in the short term.

    Sometimes odd things can save you.

    Chapter 5 - Week 3 - Mood: Afraid
    or
    It had our name on it!

    Spoiler
    Show

    So, we have selected to go visit Julianna. Let's get talking, lady.

    She looks pretty aprehensive about it.



    Pardon?
    "What crystal?"
    Exactly what I said.


    So, our mom had a crystal...Ergo, our mom was also a Lumen.
    ..And now there's an unused magic crystal floating around.

    "The Royal Crystal has been passed down from ruler to ruler for generations. It belongs to you, now - except that the King may be keeping it from you."
    Man, what's our old man got against us being a magical girl? It's our birthright! You can't support an absolute monarchy and not support this whole 'birthright is destiny' concept.

    "Do you have a crystal?"
    "Of course."
    What part of this concept have you been ignoring, Elodie?


    Pretty shiny...Do want.

    You reach out to touch it, and it dissolves away into nothing.
    Awwwww....

    My thoughts exactly.

    "It belongs to me. No one can take it from me until I die."
    So...If we kill you, we get a crystal?
    Oh, I kid, I kid. No sense wasting a magical lady when we have a crystal lying around.
    "You need to find the crystal that belongs to you."

    And...That's the scene. Where do we find it? That's for us to find out. She seems to think Dad knows something about it.
    But now it's time for classes! We're doing Accounting and Reflexes, as you demanded!



    So we spend a week of people poking us? Really?
    ...Ummm... Ok.

    I'm assuming that's good, then. Numbers go up, is all I know.


    And we open to our weekly event with our chipper cousin.


    Kids these days...Err...Those days... *tear* So young.
    "Not really. I just like to play with the flowers."


    Goshdarnit, Julianna! We thought you were going to help us!

    Que?
    "Princess! Don't move!"


    Now, we have a choice...But with our skills, it doesn't matter. All the effects are the same.
    So let's pick the one with a skill check: "Hold Still."

    There's no check for the other choice, and the affects are the same in every way.

    You look down where the sword is pointing.

    Well. If that were a snake, it would have bitten me.
    ...Literally.
    It kind of still could.


    Well, I hope you've enjoyed this LP of Long Live the Queen.
    ...
    I kid.
    "No!"

    We kill her instead!
    ...

    ...
    Yeah, still kidding. The game's still got its kid gloves on.

    "Lottie!"

    Well, at least it can't bite us. Good work, Julianna. I guess we were right to trust you!


    Your daughter was fine, but then she took a snake to the knee.

    "Your daughter's been bitten by a milk viper. They're poisonous. Get an herbalist, right away!"
    But if it bit us, you can garuntee we'd have had to treat it ourselves or die. That's how this game things.


    ...You do that. Yooouuu just do that, Lucille.
    "I'm sorry..."
    "I don't feel good."
    That's called 'poison.'


    Don't you want to treat her, first? ACTING QUICKLY IS THE FIRST STEP TO PREVENT DEATH BY POISON, PEOPLE.


    That snake was meant for us.
    "Someone may have tried to kill you."
    Quickly, add this to the spreadsheet!

    "Will Charlotte be okay?"
    Focus on the bit where someone wanted you dead, will you, Elodie?
    "I don't know."



    Welp. Nothing to do but relax for the weekend.
    As you can see, talking to Charlotte is gone.
    Everything else is the same as last time: if we want to manage fear, we'd be best visiting dungeons or attending service.
    Talk To Our Father: ???

    Talk to Julianna: ???


    Attend Court: +2 Yielding, +1 Depressed, +1 Pressured

    Attend Service*: -1 Afraid

    Explore Castle: +1 Lonely, +1 Afraid

    Play with Toys: +1 Yielding, +1 Lonely, +1 Cheeful.

    Visit Dungeons* +1 Willful, +1 Angry

    Visit Tomb: +1 Depressed, +1 Afraid

    Walk in the Gardens: +1 Lonely, +1 Cheerful.

    Sneak Out: +1 Lonely, +2 Willfull


    Our mood currently.


    Voting Time, until I wake up tommorow morning: What will we do this weekend? After that, we'll follow it with for what we'll be learning in Week 4!

    Don't you see?! They'll be suspicious if we start obviously practicing Elodie's self-defense techniques! No, the proper way to survive in a court is to seem totally uninteresting until you are ready to strike. Elodie already has far too much attention, being the next monarch and all, so we need to play this conservatively. And what could be more uninteresting than Accounting lessons?

    I concur. We'll probably need the extra time to increase Accounting anyway.

    Hey, about these dungeons: Are these the RPG-style dungeons with monsters and giant treasure chests, or does "visit the dungeons" literally mean "go downstairs and watch some poor guy get shoved into an iron maiden"?
