Re: [WIP/Teaser] Vega must burn (formerly "Secret April Project")
For those who can't wait - slightly good news:


The Light of Antares re-release will be out on May 1st.

Light of Antares was originally released in 2007, and continuity-wise the directy predecessor to Vega must burn. This new version comes with some significant quality of life improvements.

For what is water, which seeks to make all things level, which has no taste or colour of its own, but a liquid form of Nothing?" - Graham Swift, Waterland

"For a theft, a true theft, must be practiced to be earned." - The Lantern King, Pathfinder: Kingmaker

"...because they are not Dragons."

Quick aisde, because it impacts the release scheudle of Vega must burn:

An important part why and how I got started and went ahead on Vega must burn was that I was expecting to be expelled from university on academic grounds this summer (tl;dr: I failed a course). However after 3 months waiting for the final verdict, I just got a letter from university admin informing me that, on condition I pass an equivalent course this semester, being expelled would off the table.

Since being expelled would also have costed me my potential/future MA-degree regardless of if I turn in my MA-thesis or not, this was kinda a make or break decision - and I was doing all the crunch to get something to for job hunting portfolio out.

So now, I am back to a more leisurely pace. In advance, sorry for the wait :D

That's great news, well done. Also means I get to feel a little less guilty about my rather glacial pace of proof-reading VMB. I will start in earnest after the bank holiday, promise :-)

Well, it's about time...

A few things have happened since my last post:

1.) Hellgate: Ikeya has been fully updated.

If you want to give feedback that will affect Vega Must Burn, give it and Light of Antares a look.


2.) Iain completed the first revision of the full campaign script a month ago.

In in doing so delivered the most savage reminder of just how insufficent my craft is:

Quote from: Iain Baker
“Performing technical support with extreme prejudice” – Quote of the day :)
... because that line is 99.9 percent a quote from Destiny 2: Forsaken.


3.) Axem has extended a helping hand.
Previously there has been a problem with a more "clandestine" aspect of the campaign, mostly due to accessibility issues - I wanted the inputs to be more than a few lines and always readable. But thank the higher-power-of-your-choice-if-such-a-thing-needs-to-exist-for-your-fulfillment, Axem *is*.


In response I am now going to trick out said clandestine aspect. Originally, I was going to have triggers appear semi-random, mixed in with another story telling tool. But now I am going to give its own mission specific triggers - some of those are going to be more obvious than others.
