        This is an interesting theory, but I feel like the actual case is that italicized words give more information that isn't obvious to people complaining about it and, given that they don't want to learn or engage their brains, that makes them feel lesser, which creates the outraged reaction. Or maybe it's just "it's different, which means it's bad".

        You can always change that by donating to have a commissioned. Even a little bit each month will eventually see a new chapter be written. Though it may take Leecifer around 6 months to actually write it with his current backlog.

      Random line of thought I thought would be better shared here, would being forced to take a very weak weave based work contract or nothing one of the worst ways for the company to fuck a Lee over?

        It's a very weak magic CYOA and only mostly based on cantrips, so it has utility and some power but only for people that are actually patient and go with the lowest starting selection of spells. :)

      Hey Lee, I know you aren't prioritizing them because of the backlog of commissioned works, but I have a question about future MG's. One of the things I love about The Company that you and Cherico work in is that you can use any CYOA instead of the WC or the one you created for future builds.
      1. Dragonhulk
        Dragonhulk
        One of the things I liked the most about BTK and DS is that you didn't use any version of the WC, and I'm curious if any other CYOA has caught your attention enough that you'd use them in a Company story in the future.

        I've got a couple ideas, though the 'issue' is that a lot of the other CYOAs, because they aren't required to parasitize another IP, can easily be turned into original fiction.

        True, but I've also seen a lot that focuses on one fandom, so while limiting could still be fun to see done. Even the ones that encourage original fiction could be dumped in an IP. Still, looking forward to what you write no matter what CYOA is or is not used.

      I just found an author on fanfiction.net named Vimesenthusiast. They use a speech to text program that allows them to produce three 30k chapters a month. With your backlog of commissions have you considered using a similar program?
      1. Leecifer
        Leecifer
        While I liked Vimesenthusiast's earlier works, their use of that program seems to have encouraged some very bad habits, as all their stories started getting very... basic and same-y, to the point I couldn't keep reading them.

        While I could blitz through my backlog, I wouldn't be delivering on the standard of quality people have come to expect, and that I, personally, hold myself to.

        The age old problem of quantity versus quality. Now that you have pointed it out I can even see the trap. I know when I am speaking I don't think as deeply as when I'm writing, so that probably translates when using speech to text programs.

        Oh well it was just a greedy thought on how I could get you to give me more stories quicker.

        Good for taking notes or writing out scenes, so long as you plan to go back over them with a fine toothed comb to see if the story flows properly. I also read Vime, but I find that he tends to get lost on the details and doesn't often check to ensure he's not treading the same path again.

      So odd question but regarding the Stacy clones/copies used for the agent training and such...

      Are they in the catalogue to buy? Like obviously not the "real" one used by writers and cyoa enthusiast's but the version used by characters in the various stories?

      Because I could absolutely see some nutter who survives their initiation wanting a Stacy to vent their frustrations on/keep as a pet/buy for old times sake.
      1. Leecifer
        Leecifer
        Way I'm running it, Agents aren't available for general purchase, as that's not their contract. That said, in the infinite multiverse, did a Stacy fuck up so bad she became product? ... probably, and more likely than most Agents.

        Had the same thing happen to me a number of years ago. No actual pain for a fair while, though extreme temperatures in liquids which came into contact with it changed that.

        1 issue with it is that depending on if it's just a large chip or actually gets to roots/other sensitive tissues it can be a major vector for infection. Given long enough or just bad luck that can lead into heart issues.

      Something I think people forget is that a lot of content starts out the same to similar and then evolves after all pathfinder was originally just a barely changed d&d 3rd edition. it took a decent amount of time and effort to make an actual different system from it. You make some good stories so don’t be bothered too much by nitpicking.

      Just read the catalogue pdf. I like the rebalanced start up, the three tiers of defence and cost/benefit changes. A much easier to use ride system. Treasure hoard deserved your price hike for how broken it was. Residential changes, may be put a "stunning Villa" between sweet home and manor with grounds.

        I thought about it a bit more, and if you lean towards Davy Jones than just 'being a pirate' then the inhumanity makes more sense, it just doesn't kick in until fairly deep down the line. Also if you want to be a Dragon Pirate in One Piece resleeve yourself into someone who's a dragon, just be a pirate (or, if you need to, Template Stack one), and head to One Piece to make that story work if you want.

        Sounds good, and thanks for the clarification. I still like the idea of jobs, and think something like Shonen protagonist would be fun. Able to quickly advance in power, but at the cost of upping the Tier rating, and lowering your IQ.

      Kudos on pissing off Swift like that

        Honestly not my main intention. I just wanted a Catalog I could use. Wasn't even that hard to unfuck and 'complete', give the WC's been 'in beta' for 4 years. Didn't even have official world/character rating criteria when I started.

      Morning Lee, wanted to know if your Waifupunk fanfic can only be found on patreon? If so under what name?

        So I've only done 1 chapter, and it's the first post under my Multiversal Glimpses thread, but it's been Kommissioned so when it gets a chapter 2 it'll get it's own thread.
