Thanks for replying. I do think there is a place to goof off in this thing. Was kinda hoping that it could be made a bit clear in the initial choice, maybe professional "professional slacker/neckbeard/cringelord". For me personally I was expecting shenanigans about magic system or contracts and was quite blindsided, seeing that crayola medallion made me go "No, bad game." like I was scolding a dog but with a smile on my face.
I do know very well that feeling when making a poor decision early on, it is hard to change as development has picked up. I was also thinking that there isn't a background for someone with physical fitness or athletic person who could help out in the expeditions (or was it explorations). But regardless you have made an amazing VN and this has been joy to go through.
