Since eating people gives strength, I've shifted the build a little as well so now leveling will be 1-5 str and 3-7 dex. That should help make up for the error there, plus dex stews and training with Morgana. If there is still issues with the level scaling during chapter 3, I can see about adding some extra tactics for keeping things balanced. Trying to find the proper balance between game/grind/fun is such a bitch XD

On the topic of balance, I'm worried about what's going to happen at the boss fights when players are able to get to them without meeting the Notoriety requirements; it's already a grind to get there as it is. The quest rewards as they are simply aren't sufficient and I suspect most of the more peaceful players are going to wind up dying the moment they get to Heather; It's already a grind to get TO her, let alone PAST.

Furthermore, the quest is redo-able if you go out to the hills and beat it again. Something isn't getting flagged properly when you turn it in, it seems.

In the process of shamelessly copying your method of saving and loading games, I noticed an issue with it. It means literally nothing if you don't need to have any footers for your game, but if you eventually find out that you want to have one, Harlowe thinks that you have an open (set: statement, and it completely messes up any code you put after it.

So since a LOT of my systems rely on having both headers and footers, I redid the syntax completely.

It ended up being more easily readable, so if you are interested, here are some examples:

For variables that need to be strings: `(`set: `$saveline` to "$name")
For variables with normal numbers: `(`set: `$saveline2` to $plhp)
For boolean variables (this one was harder to work with): `(`set: `$saveline15` to (if: $nopromise is true)[true](else:)[false])

(for some reason, displaying a boolean the normal way just doesn't work)

Loading happens the same way you already do.

I will take some of those adjustments into consideration for the next game, a bit too invested to redo the system in the current one. If there are still people having issues with Heather or the chapter 3 bosses, then I might scale everything down a bit or add in some "work out them dex muscles" repeatables. Actually, that might work well... *note to self...*

Hi again Revx_Z! I have been telling myself I needed to work on this again for the past few months, and finally had the chance to start doing so again.

Fixed those few bugs that were recently mentioned. Trying to finish a few more scenes and steps so I can have V13 released before Thanksgiving. Got a new area, new girl to kidnap, and a bunch of other stuff. I'm also getting some artwork done for a title screen. Yay!

No pressure or anything, but are there any planned males for the harem or OOC scenes?

I don't have anything planned yet, but like the idea of player prey or more detailed pregnancy content I can see about adding stuff later. Adding a male to the harem would not be too vicious since it uses a similar framework to the females, it would just be a question of who/where. Was there a male you had an eye on?

The bear. :wink:

That's not a serious suggestion, but what I do want to seriously suggest is that some of the enemies with "This foe is too large for you to rape/eat" limits, should be gated by Strength as "This foe is currently too large for you to eat/rape". Because with over 400 strength and 200 meals in my current savefile, I would love to revisit the starter forest with bulging muscles and bulging belly and see how the tables have turned. If my character has enough Strength to grab and pin a bear, I feel he should be able to rape it.

If you've killed any elves at all before finding the city, you won't be able to enter while it's protected.

Currently only the farmer's daughter and the tavern waitress can be brought back to the lair outside of your stomach.
Elven Princess you either need to befriend the elves and/or kill all guards in your path.
