It Lives!

Here comes the long overdue update announcement.  Things have been trucking along in the background for the moment.  There's been a bit less generation of new content due to the focus on trying to get an alternative game engine operational, but that doesn't mean we've showed up empty-handed.  In addition to a lot of fixes, tweaks and typo corrections, the following material has been added or adjusted:

Stripes:
- Dominick: This ultra-dom husky is living out of a Corrupt Kennel off in the Urban Forest.  He's got several scenes and provides a new Breederslut infection.
- Feral Gryphon: You're now able to give a sample of Garrett's special "milk" to these guys, resulting in a more consensual anal scene.
- Garrett: Giving some of Garrett's "milk" to a defeated Gryphon (Herm or Feral) will open up a new sex menu option w/Garrett for a threesome, but only if you're pure male gryphon yourself as well.
- James: The medium sledge has been added as another possible weapon to bribe the Central Library's guard.

Wahn:
- Lucifer: The feral mustang now has new fun stuff in his sex menu – joining him as he breeds a mare, as well as being fucked in a sex harness strapped under the proud stallion.
- Feral Gryphon: Victory sex is now all the sweeter, as the player has the option to mount the gryphon’s cock.
- Orcs: There’s more fun to be had with Mul the orc, pushing  him further into a submissive role (if you’re an or warrior yourself).
- Rane: The blue oni and Eric will be able to get it on – with various possible results. A long sex scene is completed, though for now not uploaded yet. I will do so once the followup is further along...

Other:
- Fancy and Nermine now have in-game art by Anymouse1968.  It can also be seen on our Patreon page.
- The Mutant Centaur and some background events have been temporarily removed from active play.
- The Ewe, Ram, Lizard Girl, City Sprite, Pirate Shark and Black Equinoid are now capitalized in name.  This will affect older savewords during restoration.  Similarly, the tainted wool drop item has been corrected to lower case and inventory may similarly be affected during restoration.

Writer For Hire update:

  • More Dom Icarus (5.5/8 - in progress) - Stripes
  • More Garrett (5/8) - Stripes
  • New NPC (0/6) - Stripes
  • More M/M (Patreon) - Stripes

Chimera Upgrade

Okay, quick post this time.  After a lot of fighting with it over the week-end and multiple attempts to compile, test, compile, test, etc, I have completed the Patreon-sponsored update.  The beta-testing takes a long time this deep into the quests.

Stripes:
Returning from Zephyr to your chosen doctor leads to him offering you a very special transformation opportunity, and each one suitable to them. 
- Dr. Matt: A tantalizing opportunity to regain your humanity thanks to a dose of that restoration spray.
- Dr. Mouse: An offer of greater transformation - turning you into a powerful chimera of his own designing.
- Enhanced Chimeras: On either path, the Mismatched Chimeras get phased out for their newer model: the Enhanced Chimeras.  How they infect the player will depend on your game path. 
- Armour Tweaks: Some adjustments were made to the armour and shield systems.  Mostly background stuff that should speed up combat slightly.  The stopping power of shields have been upped in general, though that may need further tweaking.  I need to rethink some of the implementation when I have more time.
- Food/Water Request: The request for supplies by Doctor Matt has been opened up to players with Automatic Survival active.

Wahn:
- Denise: Now an npc with her own nest in the upper level of the Grey Abbey library. You can pick her up there or drop her off there (as well as still use the old pet summon commands). NPC Denise does have a sex menu and a talk menu.
- Nermine: Jackalman players who fucked Nermine and had a fennec customer walk in on the fun now can play through a followup event - where the fennec comes into the store again with his mistress Bastet. A short quest and not so short sexual contest between the player and Bastet allows for binding her into Nermine's service, adding the sexy lioness to the magic shop as a guard.

Other:
- Shaft Beasts: To deal with the continued compiler issue, we've had to temporarily phase these creatures out of the game.

Writer For Hire update:
  • New NPC (0/7) - Stripes
  • More Dom Icarus (3.25/8) - Stripes
  • More Garrett (0/8) - Stripes
  • New NPC (0/6) - Stripes
  • Lucifer/Ferals (0/6) - Wahn
  • More Orc fun with Mul (3/6) - Wahn 
  • Rane/Hayato/Eric (0/20) - Wahn
  • Chris Reservation (0/5) - Wahn
  • Caveman Reservation (0/5) - Wahn

Hospital Quest 2 Started

Here's another update on the additions to the game.  It's a shorter list because I've had to do a lot of prep/planning/testing, but it does have several significant additions.  As you can see below, there's a lot on my plate planned and coming.  The main new item for this update is the titular one: the roll-out of the first segment of Hospital Quest 2.  The Patreon time for this month will be going towards this, the Main Storyline 2 and/or various creature scenes and this is the first portion of that material.

- Hospital Quest 2:  Did you side with Dr. Mouse or do you enjoy playing in game modes without Dr. Matt, but still want more story quest?  Well now we've got the first few stages of HQ2 active.  They'll be quite familiar to experienced players, as they are retooled tasks from the latter portion with Dr. Matt.  I had originally planned only partial overlap from these, but circumstances require I be more conservative with my writing/coding at the moment.  Going forward will have a mix of mutual and individualized tasks and I might later swap out the nav point task for something different.
- Susan: As part of readying for new storyline content, Susan's gotten some preliminary adjustments.  The main of these is a separation of dialog and sex, and an acceptance of over-sized player cock.  She has also taken one of the HQ2 tasks as a request of her own: you'll need to save her from the horrors of hospital food.  We'll see more of her along with the advancement of HQ2, as I consider her a part of this.
- Aurora: Sexy times have been added to your frost giantess companion.  These are player-activated scenes, so just ask her to fuck.  She's also been given some basic endings.
- Icarus: Dom Icarus has received the first portion of his optional darker content.  After several dommy scenes with the player, he'll try to force an avian pred or feline player down into a utility basement for some extra punishment-sex.

Writer For Hire update:
  • Patreon Time (6.5/18) - Stripes
  • Patreon Scenes: Onyx - Stripes
  • New NPC (0/7) - Stripes
  • More Dom Icarus (3.25/8) - Stripes
  • More Garrett (0/8) - Stripes
  • New NPC (0/6) - Stripes
  • Nermine (0/3) - Wahn
  • Lucifer/Ferals (0/6) - Wahn
  • Denise NPC (0/6) - Wahn
  • More Orc fun with Mul (0/6) - Wahn

Pet Fix

One thing I forgot to mention during my update announcement that's actually quite important.  I found the bug that was making pets so ineffective and corrected it.  They should now have a reasonable chance of hitting in combat.  I have also slightly increased their odds of trying to attack, to further increase their merit.  And remember: increasing your charisma increases their chance to attack every round.

More NPC Stuff

I'd completed the remainder of the Patreon request for more NPC scenes several days ago.  To go along with that I did a some added work on a suggestion from the forums and added a new item for both players and NPCs (more on that below).  I also completed a couple more of my Writer for Hire requests, keeping the queue moving.

In addition to this, I also went back through my recent posts and made a lot of updates to the Wiki on the new material and changes I've done.  There's always more to be done there, but the material is more up-to-date now.  Please remember that the Wiki is open for any fan to edit, so please take a moment to add anything you see is missing.

Stripes:
Daisy: Two new sex scenes for the Stablemaster player to enjoy with the mare MILF.
Micaela: A new option to ask Micaela for a bunny-style sex romp.  Only available to 100% Easter Bunny and 100% non-Easter Bunny players.  There are two cycling variations to this extended scene.  It'll result in fully EB transformation and a significant humanity loss - a few hours of constant bunny sex will do that.
Lance: Tristian's brother, the black swan you saved, has a small request of you.
Stella: Added an option for spooning w/her and a threesome with Jimmy.
Newt: A second threesome option with her and Athanasia, again coming with three possible finales. 
Orthas: A new set of variations for herm sex with the dragoness.  You can now end up on the floor or on her desk for the first half, the second or both parts.
Alexandra: A significant fix has been made to her quest content, solving a bug which could knock back your quest progress and lock you out from sex with her.
Macadamia & Yolanda: These two NPCs have been added to the saveword.
Bovine: Some tweaks have been made to how this creature functions to improve mechanics.  The bull's CV scene should no longer become impossible to get.
Fruit Bat: This guy will now occasionally drop a tasty peach.
Ryousei: The royal tiger's been added as another intimidating pet, allowing him to give you a bonus on certain scavenging deals when he's with you.

Libido Pill: This new item I mentioned will boost your libido, which can be handy if you're finding it's too low to trigger certain scenes.  You can also give it to an NPC to speed up their refresh for the next round of sex.  I took the added time to adjusted every NPC I could find so their timer will work with the pills.  There's a few of these pills scattered around the game - I'm sure you can guess a couple of spots to check.  The following all have a 20% chance of dropping them after combat: Ashen Breeder, Succubus, Incubus and Giraffe.  If I missed any of the NPCs or something odd happens that breaks something with them, let me know.

Saveword: A renovation of the back end of the story skipper has been made.  It _should_ not cause any functional changes, but be on the lookout for new bugs or quirks.  Nuku has also made an adjustment so your storage locker contents will also be saved to file along with your regular inventory.

Blue Bishop:
Doran: The last of Doran's bodymodding has been added.

NPC Scenes and More

Having put it to a vote by our Patreon supporters, their collective support was put towards new NPC scenes, so we'll have a lot of those in this new update announcement.  While waiting for the polling to be complete, I did use some of that time to make the long-desired storage locker and add some other game features I'll go over shortly.  This means there'll be no more need to convert a far-off room into your personal dump - well, unless you're into that.

Stripes:
Micaela: The sexy Easter Bunny herm can now be impregnated, producing background offspring.  She even has an ovi-birth scene, should you be present at the time. 
Sidney: Completing her transition to female, she can now be impregnated, producing background offspring.  These children will match their mom's form.

Storage Locker: As mentioned, there's now a storage locker in the bunker.  Looking at it will bring up a menu of options.  You can move single items, all of one item or everything not nailed down in and out of the locker either through its commands (which the menu can list for you) or by calling up your inventory or the locker's via that menu.  These storage inventories aren't in neatly aligned columns or anything, but they work.

Game Features: Two new game modes have been added.  Like 'hard mode', they're meant to provide added challenge to the game and can be selected during game start-up.  They are separate from the scenario, so you can modify your experience with any or all of them.  There's also a new advanced feat.
- No-heal mode: This blocks the regular end-of-turn healing.  Healing items get a +25% increase in effectiveness though.  Currently, there is no change to resting's recovery.
- Blind mode: Prevents the player from hunting and from scavenging for a specific supply.  Instead, exploration has a significantly increased chance of finding something of interest.
- Vampiric: A new advanced (post-Hospital Quest) feat.  Recover some health, thirst and hunger after every victory.

Patreon NPC Scenes by Stripes:
Andrew: Another sex scene with the flamboyant wolf: player tops with onlookers.  The odds of his scenes have also been tweaked to promote better progression.
Brooke: An option to let the clubbing otter have a turn on top, coming with both a first-time and repeatable version.
Elijah: The option for his evil path has been made clearer, popping up any time the player has some demon seed and the 'good' cure does not go through.
Janice: Her posing mechanic's been tweaked to receive a bonus when Kristen is also there to help.
Lindsey: An oral+WS scene for suitably trained Wolftaur players.
Paula: The police station's naughty nurse now has options for a double titty-fuck and giving the player cunnilingus. 
Snow: An alternate version for vaginal sex with the hyper squirrel.
Sven: The snowmeow pet's scenes have been converted to a sex menu after his transformation is completed.  Also comes new scenes for the player receiving anal and for fucking the kitty in your lap.
Tehuantl: A new one-time heat interaction between her and Sarah.
Timothy:  An M/H and F/H scene for Feral Gryphon players with the gryphon breeder.  Also comes with new and modified endings for the Feral Gryphon based on Timothy and/or Denise.

Blue Bishop: 
Doran: The peculiar dragon now accepts cum and milk items for his body modification.
Orthas: You no longer specifically need demon seed for the F/F impregnation scene - any semen item will do.
Tanuki Coin: This odd little item will let you always have external genitalia even if your infection's naturally inclined to be internal.  Keep an eye out for any scenes/descriptions where this isn't working and we'll adjust them.  Pro tip from Stripes: Some of my brand new scenes will need adjustment. :P
Nullification Powder: A peculiar powder has started cropping up in various locations.  It will also be dropped by the Mannequins.  Using it allows you to reduce the size of anatomical features even if you have "One Way".
EDIT: We almost forgot one additional thing.  Two new drop items have been added: hawkman seed and pewter seed.

Wahn:
Orcs: Just added is an Orc foursome with Boghrim, Jason and Mul.

Patreon Graphics:
We've added artwork for the Donkeywoman to the game thanks to sponsor request.  The art can be freely seen on our Patreon page.

General fixes:
Ebonflame Dragator: The odd bug making the Alpha Husky image for this creature has been tricked into going away.  Hopefully shouldn't recur elsewhere.
Pregnancy Issues: Some of the pregnancy issues that were happening involving UB, Orthas and so on have been fixed.  Keep an eye out for any other such problems.
Typos: Strongbird continues his unending battle against the typos of the game.

Content Update

With everything that's been going on, it's been difficult to make an announcement on the new content we have been adding.  As mentioned, there's been a lot going on, but that doesn't mean that we don't also have a lot of new content for you.

First off though, some news:
- The material I previously trimmed has been sufficient to allow us to continue making some updates, so nothing new has been removed.  The compiler issue still exists, but we've managed to stay below whatever limit makes it go crazy, at least for now.
- To date the only material of substance that has been removed is Omio and her related quests, which includes Dan and Greg.  If you encounter any strange bugs or find that other parts of Kaleem's material does require this content to advance, please let us know.
- We'll be reporting in soon with more on our attempts to get FS into a new platform once we decide how we'll proceed.
- As you'll see below, Wahn's back to writing with some new updates and content.

Stripes:
- Alexandra: Quest content for Good Alexandra continues, first with a special reward and then a possible lead on dealing with the Automatons.  The fallout from the latter will come later.  The doberwoman cop also now has a sex option menu for your enjoyment.
- Icarus: The blue songbird's had all his content, from capture to sub and dom variations updated to work with the player as a feline.  There'll also be some new attic variations for feline players which will be activated in a couple of hours.  Among these is a rather gory CBT scene that you can opt out of.
- Sidney: Her NPC content has been added, giving her dialog, scents and sex scenes.  Added to the saveword.
- Micaela: The Easter Bunny infection she provides now comes with an egg-tastic heat that could also tempt you into letting the bunny fuck your fecund bunny cunny.  Added to the saveword.
- Alt Vore: New creature-specific vore scenes has been added for the Hermaphrodite Gryphon, the Leopardman and the Elk.  The latter two require some experience in voring before they'll appear.
- Lucy: A special sex scene with you as the Skunkbeast Lord has been added.  Somehow it'd missed posting it.
- Slut Rat Quest: The hint from the Captive Rat event has been made a little more explicit.
- Library Computer: As mentioned in my previous post, this has been reworked to allow a lot of extraneous code (like the password) to be removed.  Still no idea what to do with it though.

 Blue Bishop:
- Ebonflame Dragons: These guys are revamped replacements for the Ash Dragons.  See BB's Dragonpalooza announcement below for more details.
- Doran: The big dragon's got some new tricks up his proverbial sleeve.  Again, details in the Dragonpalooza announcement.

Wahn:
- David + Brutus: Some new material has been added for this pairing.  Something involving a ritual and hot sex, apparently... so good times. :)
- Ryousei: This new Royal Tiger will appear at the park shrine and then become a monster once you're above level 10.

Strongbird:
- Continued typo correction eradication and other minor tweaks.  I feel kinda bad about how much he keeps finding.

Patreon:
- Artwork: Patreon-requested artwork for Blot the inflatable pony and for the Magic Drake have been added to the game.  They can also freely be viewed on our Patreon page.

Writer for Hire queue:
- I'll update this in the evening.  Off to actual-work.
