This time showing two more allies and one…enemy, I guess.
Lady Dilber is NOT the villain or an enemy and you won’t be fighting
her so…yeah. She’s just a different kind of woman. She’s more like
Ebenezer in terms of world view - just as Bella is more like Fred in HER
world view. Fan, of course, is Ebenezer’s sister and one of the few
people who genuinely cares about. Don’t worry - she will NOT be playing
the Damsel in Distress (even though she is lost in the castle with the
rest of your allies.)
Havisham was Ebenezer’s governess and first lover. Without
explanation, and a long absense, Ebenezer finds her in the castle aged
FAR beyond what she should be. What happened to her? True, she betrayed
him and joined the rebels but…this?
I’m sketching out the most important characters FIRST so I can feel
my way through things. I’m taking a different tact this time than what
I’ve done before. Big broad steps and then I run in and do detailing
detailing detailing on that SECTION. That CHUNK. So that I don’t get
overwhelmed or lose focus like I have many times before.
The mapping is done. The music has been chosen. There’s a general outline to what occurs.
I’m further along NOW than I have EVER been in a game project. I’ve
been playing close attention to my intuition (and trusted friends) for
guidance here. It’s exciting!
