Degrees of Lewdity version

This update adds Kylar's manor, and lets demon PCs hunt for "prey" at night. It also adds a skulduggerous strategic layer to blackjack with Wren, combat hypnosis, and a sprinkling of events in and around town.

I wanted to include the manor with Kylar's debut a couple of years ago, but it was too meaty to fit, and has been on the backburner since. I think this was the right idea, and I've explored Kylar's backstory in more depth than I'd originally planned.

There are a few routes during the new abduction sequence, but only the Stockholm syndrome route unlocks the manor as a permanent location. I'm considering letting the PC return should they escape by a different method, they know where it is after all. It is written with the assumption the PC has Stockholm syndrome however, so a lot would need to change.

Be careful when using skulduggery during blackjack. You're not the only rogue in the room. The ability to deceive here is another thing I wanted to include earlier, but pushed back for time. The contributor definitely_not_a_cop has gone beyond what I had in mind though, and done great work.

Doctor Harper and certain tentacles can now hypnotise the PC in combat, along with the occasional hypnotist in the general population. The effects be resisted through willpower, or interrupted with an attack, but can be very dangerous. I plan to add more hypnotic commands in the future, once sure the existing ones aren't too difficult to deal with.

There's now a theme switcher, accessible at the top of the "Options" menu in the sidebar, that changes the colour scheme of the UI. Thanks to shikiyoku and February for this. Let me know if there are any themes you'd like to see.

As for the new demon options on Domus Street, they are intended to make sating your lusts more convenient, though not without a little risk. I'd like to add similar options for each transformation, with appropriate benefits.

Thanks to all the contributors, and to you for playing! I'm going to begin work on 0.4 proper, though there might be smaller updates in the meantime depending on how things pan out.

Edit: Updated to, fixing bugs.
Edit 2: Updated to, fixing more bugs.
Edit 3: Updated to, fixing more bugs and adding a handful of small features.

Alternative links:

  • Kylar can now give the PC a gift at high love.
  • Added some other events involving Kylar.
  • Demon PCs can now climb through windows at night on Domus Street in search of "prey".
  • Added Kylar's manor to Danube Street. Needs to be discovered before it can be visited.
  • Added cheating options and suspicion mechanics to Blackjack. You can mark cards, and attempt to peek as cards are dealt. Higher skulduggery makes cheating easier. Being caught can be dangerous. Thanks to definitely_not_a_cop.
  • Added a Cheating Guide beneath the Blackjack Guide, explaining mechanics in more detail. Thanks to definitely_not_a_cop.
  • Added a couple of Whitney events to the town's streets.
  • Added a scene with Morgan to the sewers. Written by Kurjutta, coded by Crimson Tide.

  • You can now ask NPCs to be rougher with you. Requires the "Guilty Masochist" or higher trait for consensual encounters, and the "Hardened Masochist" or higher trait for non-consensual encounters.
  • The "Hypnotic Yearning" trait can make the PC beg for rougher treatment instead of screaming. The effect can be resisted by willpower. Being hypnotised multiple times will transform the effect into something stronger.
  • Some NPCs are now hypnotists, and can hypnotise the PC during combat, inflicting the "Hypnotic Yearning" trait, increasing masochism, or making the PC orgasm at once. Doctor Harper is always a hypnotist, and generic NPCs have a 1% chance of generating as such. Iridescent, incandescent, translucent, blooming, wired, and convulsing tentacles can also hypnotise the PC, and increase sadism instead of masochism.
