Woot, I'm writing again. I finished about 2900 words today, covering the third loan payment, the first third of Hilde's hiring event, and the introduction of another (eventually) hireable character. I'm aiming to finish Hilde's hire stuff for the next release (I know, I keep saying that, but this time for real!).
Remember, way back when, I promised that some characters remember your choices and change how they react to you? That's why Hilde's hire event is taking so long - Hilde and Wend have long memories, so there are several branching paths that each get their own events.
Not all choices can be unmade. Even in this fantasy world there are consequences. :)
Because I haven't poked the hornets nest enough recently, I leave you with an amusing link.
