First impressions in general? (On story, game type, etc?): Fantasy's great as always. I'm interested in how old the protagonist is since she's retiring. Is she older, or just retiring young?
Are you interested in any particular characters?: The young knight seems like he'll be a sweetheart. Also I can date a dragon??

Not much to say yet, but I'm looking forward to it! ^_^

Laughed at the 'can't date a talking sword' feature. At least you can date a dragon.

Have fun with the nano - I love anything with knights, swords and dragons. >o<b

Nice to see you working on a NaNo this year! I enjoyed several of your games in the past, and I'm looking forward to what you're making this time.

First impressions in general? (On story, game type, etc?)
Sounds like fun! but but why can't we date the talking sword D':

Are you interested in any particular characters?
The talking sword, definitely. I imagine a talking sword would have plenty of interesting things to say.
I'm also curious about the wounded but ill-intentioned man, and how he would interact with the knight!

Other critique/suggestions/questions? Let me know!
Good luck with this project!

1. First impressions in general? (On story, game type, etc?)
I've never been the type to really get into the medieval genres, only because I have a weird thing with princesses, knights, and the like :P That doesn't mean I don't find your story interesting, though! It's very different, which is something I can appreciate. ^^

2. Are you interested in any particular characters?
The talking sword. Hands down.

3. Other critique/suggestions/questions? Let me know!
I'm looking forward to seeing the art! Good luck with the development :D

*GASP*

I love stories about knights! I'm immediately very extremely interested!

First impressions in general? (On story, game type, etc?)

Super cute, and looks like a great NaNo game. Again, I seriously love the "disillusioned, tired knight" trope, and my favorite characters tend to be of that variety. Getting to play one is a treat!

Are you interested in any particular characters?

Honestly? Everyone! I love the idea of the protagonist having to deal with the injured stranger, and also having to endure the knight errant begging her to train him. Everything about this is my jam!

Comments on the art? (*Artwork will be added later.)

Really unique, and as soon as I saw it, I thought, "yeah, that totally fits the style of the story".

Other critique/suggestions/questions? Let me know!

Super looking forward to this. Good luck!

I plan on continuing this project for SuNoFes 2017. Can I request to have this thread moved from "WiP: NaNoRenO" to "Works in Progress"?
