Let's kick off the week by having another look at Van with his emoticon, the last Crusader out of the three in employment!

Seemingly cold, Van is the type who joined the service to rise in the ranks and claim glory with his own hands.
Coming from a life of poverty, he never were able to shake off his hatred for nobility due to them being born into a life of wealth and luxury while he had to struggle to simply stay alive as a youth.
This makes him follow Crayden with a deep sense of admiration as he too came from being a nobody to end up as the Commander of the Beldorian Forces.

In game related news, things are coming along really smoothly, even though I'm still working on the sequences taking place around the second Iron Spire...it's basically shaping up to be something akin to the High Lord Gathering and Darkthorn Keep arcs, combined! So there is a reason it's taking a bit of time, even with the cutscenes being marked off one by one.

When I'm done with all that, I intend to go back and work on the part where you head into the Illusian Forest to save Queen Opala, but I'm also considering going further back and start adding parts that'll give more backstory to the protagonist himself, and give him a mom.
Before your eyebrow dart too high up, let me clarify the mom would be a far more "normal" character who isn't as open about sexuality or dress as provocatively as everyone else.
Besides adding a new homestead location where you can actually meet her, I was also thinking of adding dream flashbacks of past events during the few scripted moments you have to sleep.
Like right after meeting Laquadia at the start, during the guest manor in Brightstone etc.
We'll see! It might be a week or two before I officially introduce the mom!

And with all of that, see you during the next update!

    1. I was immediately reminded of a dream sequence where we find out a mom was fucking the dog and her husband was giving handies to old dudes.

    2. That sounds like something only someone insane would come up with...

    3. Hey I did not write that you did. lol

    4. I thought "hope just more or less common mom")

  2. I'm still holding out for Van to be a bi male. The perfect wingman, he gives you bro-jobs and anal when you're both alone then when you do have a girl he can help you double fuck her pussy.

    1. Only I know for certain...so far!

    2. Although if Van just is a girl with a pair of thick socks stuffed in her pants, Terry Pratchet beat you to it :-P

    3. I've only read one of the Discworld books... D:

    4. I still think he is a she due to the fact or suposition that on that time, joining the army or crusaders as a woman would be way harder, so it would be understandable if she tries to dress and bandage her lemons.

      Delete
    5. ...Except Beatrix is a crusader too, and all woman. ;)

    6. I mean, she came from a tribe of woman warriors right? Diferent from Van, i might be wrong tho.

      Delete
    7. Well if Van ain't a man, then I'll have to get my cock quota from Eclipse and the Giga Lardos :-P

  3. Van doesn't look human. Is he an elf or one of the the sub-species

    1. Nah, just got a less round ear.
      "Elves" in the LoQO universe is anime styled, or Warcraft, the type with long ears.

      Delete
    2. Its actually more or less common for people to be born with less round ears, i got a pair myself, and the dark elf from LoQO2 is a guide on what ears an elf has.(pretty bigger tham human)

      Delete
    3. Same, and it caused me no end of grief when I was younger. Small head and pointed ears you can imagine the insults.

      Delete
  4. Hmmm well if all of these things are going to be implemented, i gotta say starting over from scratch to get a full experience sounds pretty tempting right about now!

    1. Should be a breeze too, with the current party level, surely. x3

      Delete
    2. O no, im saying to start from scratch not using the new game + restart. See the game from a beginner's perspective and all that, again!

      Delete
    3. I mean, don't get me wrong, but there is basically no content for leveling up, since change log wise, little has been added sidequest wise, so all you would be doing is going to have to grind a little more.. I would only do that, if i was a time without playing and i had forgotten about events that happened, but since my memory is good, i feel bored every time i try.

  5. That emoticon! If Van isn’t a girl in disguise or some kind of futa....

    Also about the Mom, will we be able to have any control over what her sprite looks like? Or will each form of the protagonist have its own version of their mother, or will the mother be the same for each protagonist.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The avoid any complications, the mother will be the same and the protagonist will more resemble his father...I would've liked if the mom was based on the current playable character, but if she ever got a scene or trading cards...that would be...uhh...tricky, and expensive. xD

      Delete
    2. Understandable. Still can’t wait to see it!

      Delete
    3. Amen I hope there will be trading cards of her, but maybe more reserved/normal since that’s how you describe her.

      Delete
    4. And I hope there will be trading cards of her, but maybe more reserved/normal since that’s how you describe her.

      Auto correct changed and to “amen” lol

      Delete
    5. Hmmm. So a scene/card of the yet to be seen mother character is not out of the question? Because it would end up being... problematic, regardless of the approach. It's either straight up incest, or someone (or someTHING) fucking the main character's mother.

      Delete
    6. I mean, if his mother and father are separated, there is really no problem in his mother going to business with another, or his father at that..

      Delete
    7. We don’t know now if there separated, but 1) Gabe already said the mom would be more reserved and 2) it would be OUR Mom. And personally I wouldn’t want my in game Mom getting screwed crazily and possibly reluctantly for perverts entertainment. It’s almost like NTR.

      Anyway, my solution is if there are trading cards have them be just the Mom with the father and be more intimated compared to the other girls’ cards.

      Delete
    8. That poses the same problem as why the mom has only one look, though. If the father's in the picture and the protagonist takes after his father, there'd need to be variants for each version of the protagonist.

      Delete
    9. Then...how about making the trading cards for the mom take place before the protagonist’s birth? That way it’s less weird. Just her misadventures before meeting his father....OR have each trading card be with a version of the protagonist’s father. 2 for white, 2 for black, 2 for wolf, 2 for horse, and 2 for bull.

      Delete
    10. I mean, the mom might be reserved now cuz she is ashamed of some "things" she did in the past, and the whole "I wouldn’t want my in game Mom getting screwed" is more of a personal point, since in a game, i wouldn't mind it, since in a game i usually do what i wouldn't IRL, so i would welcome a little bit of mom screwage, and im probably not the only one that thinks that.

      Delete
    11. Yeah but there are other people like me who feel the same way I do too and cause it’s an rpg and I tend to play how I would act or want to act. But it would kind of suck if the protagonist had to deal with shit abou his mother, but then again Gabe could make it so that the protagonist can choose whether to be cool with their mother’s sexuality or to want her to be pure and not be the target of perverts.

      Delete
    12. There could be a variable for good guys, i mean, nothing limits the creativity, so it could have a variable of good or evil align.

      Delete
  6. Interesting I have no problem meeting the mom in the story, I want to know what makes her not "normal" compare to everyone else in that world.

    1. She is just old fashioned and reserved. ;)

      Delete
    2. It means if you say some sex story, she will get all shocked or smack you in the head.. at least thats what i understood.

      Delete
    3. There is nothing wrong with a reserved woman

      Delete
    4. I'm not saying there is, im just saying you can't just throw lewd words at her or she probably would be kinda mad.

      Delete
  7. I would love more backstory. I was very happy in the new beta when the knight talked to you, but at the same time don't put to much on yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Why would a magihound interfere on the focus of Van as a sniper if you're just prone there on the ground with your legs half open.. wait a second.. unless..

    ReplyDelete
  9. Honestly, having the mom be more conservative and normal just makes me want lewd stuff to happen even more :P It'd be a nice change of pace too, since just about every gal in this series is a sexpot and that's only fun when they act as a contrast to the majority or there's a build up to it like how most of shoku's games end :P

  11. Y'know, all this mother talk just reminded me, what with patreon cracking down on stuff with incest lately, let's hope LOQO doesn't get targeted (even in spite it generally being pretty light on the incest front :P).

    1. I really don't understand their policy on incest, it's an oddly specific "fetish" and just stupid...especially if it's about fictional characters where genes doesn't mean poo.
      And where is the line? Parents? Cousins? Ancestors?
      This is just one of those kind of censorships that genuinely makes me upset because it so obviously cater to a specific group of people who have decided it's wrong for everyone and their viewpoint is the only valid one.

      ...Sorry for the rant. xD

      Delete
    2. No worries, I'm on your side with this.

      Delete
    3. I mean, there is no sensorship on historic facts that involve incest and worst, why would they make something like that..

      So when its about history, its all fine and dandy, but a fictional thing is not, internet is slowly closing its door to freedom i guess.

    4. You know most sibling porn I have come across(besides onichan hentai stuff) is all step-brothers,step-sisters and step-dads and step-mothers. Hardly anything is ever direct relation
