In a world where your very existence is a reason to be hunted down, arachneid mercenary Ry does not have it easy. So the last thing she needed was to be enticed by an alluring letter from Iora Bladefeather, the woman she had tried to forget for the past two years. She is asked to meet the aquillan high priestess in Svartalle, a monster settlement ruled by the iron fist of Lady Yellow, and the center of great political tension. Will her naive love justify risking her life for a woman who may be blinded by faith and arrogance?

Fateless Two, Faithless Thee is a short RPG designed to be a kinetic novel. Combat is in the style of boss-battle simulators, with the first half of the game focusing on various errands Ry must run within Svartalle: from fishing in leviathan-infested waters to crafting for devices in the workshop of an undead necro-alchemist. There is no grinding required, although a crafting system for healing items and consuming rare ‘feesh’ gives the options to buff Ry’s stats, making the combat experience smoother. The game doesn't make use of leveling, so each battle requires players to make use of the various combos they can pull off with combinations of status effects. The game features plenty of the developer team’s brand of comedy, though it takes a more serious tone in the final parts of the game.

Disclaimer: Dialogue contains some adult humor. Viewer discretion is advised.

Estimated gameplay length: ~2 hours




~Arachneid Witch-Mercenary Ry & High-Priestess Iora Bladefeather~

Version 1.2

We've looked through the game again and made some changes to unintentional game design such as solutions to battles and unclear directions.
The full breakdown of the updates include:

- Fixes to dialogue (typos)
- Added moar Yellow Maids roaming around just because
- Addition of dialogue cues (namely for the Forest, upon obtaining the item Piece of Paper and dialogue with NPCs in relation to the pearl and silver quest)
- The Leviathan is now immune to Curse of Binding
- Added Victor's Scuffed Research Note and corresponding dialogue from the Seamstress
- Added hidden character encounter
- All Feesh (other than Shrimp and Guppy) now grants improved healing


Here are also some hints to those that may be stuck with the game:
- Aside from fishing, the best way to obtain money is to craft resources into potions in Victor's workshop as the markup price for potions is high
- The solution to the Forest maze is to get Sporicide potions to negate the poisonous mist and obtain the clues for directions by solving the riddle in the Piece of Paper (Ry now gives a dialogue hint when obtaining the item)
- Crafting potions is much more efficient than buying them. To view the full description of potions in Victor's workshop press Q/W.

I tried your game and I really liked it that I could play as an arachne and the intro scene really drew me in but... yeah I have no idea what to do next, the forest just keeps looping (and I tried several ties to map it and fully explore it) I tried the fishing game also which was nice but that was it, I looked through the inventory read the letters, apparently I need to craft something somewhere ad maybe give a toy to9 a kid, but other than that I have no idea what to do or where to go.

Hello! Thanks for playing. Here are some things that might help you out.

At the bottom right of the Pause menu, you can always see the main objective. It'll tell you things like look for someone or obtain some items. You can try talking to some of the important-looking characters, that usually tell you everything. For optional places like the forest, however, you need to find hints about how to navigate the area. You can find a poem in one of the houses that might tell you what to look out for guidance in the forest.
