In development: Masters of Raana

Most up-to-date public version: 0.7.9.4
Current Alpha version (Tier4+): 0.8 - Out now!

Welcome to Grimdark Studio's SubscribeStar page! Here, you'll always be able to read up on my latest releases, current news and other interesting stuff regarding Masters of Raana, which is my current active project.

INTRODUCTION (MASTERS OF RAANA)
Step into an open-world sci-fi/fantasy RPG set on a savage and decadent planet 200 years after all contact has been lost with Earth. Following this mysterious "Severance", the once thriving colony of Ikaanos has fallen into violence and despair, as neo-feudal warlords battle for scarce resources and half the population staggers under the yolk of slavery.
You enter this desperate world as a hungry freebooter, clinging to the margins of society. Then, fate hands you a chance for a better life, but at a grim price: Your brother has disappeared, leaving you his home in the Redhaven district in the middle of this shattered urban utopia. Perhaps you can transform his decrepit hovel into an enviable abode, inspiring admiration and jealousy among your neighbors and emerge as a member of the city's elite?
But first, you need money: and lots of it. There is coin to be made on Raana, if you have the courage, the skill or the cunning to seize it. Will you take on the role of a learnéd professor,  stalk the wilds beyond the city wall in search of fearsome game, or, will you become a renowned slave trainer, skilled at the art of bending well-made female flesh to serve your needs? Will you teach them the subtle arts of pleasure and submission or the savagery of the arena, where they will fight in your name as a gladiatrix for the cheering crowds, who crave even a moment's reprise from the misery of their own lives. Whether they become fierce warriors or docile concubines under your firm command, they will be the living proof that you are among the Masters of Raana.

But keep in mind that there are no guiding hands and no pre-determined paths that you must take to succeed. The world of Raana will evolve around your character and you have complete freedom in everything. 

Live your own saga.

Stretch Goals


Now that we're moving into the 0.8 series of updates, I thought I'd post some information about all the nice features that are due in the following two stretch goals. These stretch goals are built to accommodate and add more flavor to everything that's already planned for 0.8.X – slaves, interactions, relationships and expanded household slots.

Stretch goal I ($1000) – Party Engine - REACHED (completed)!
Features an advanced party/event engine with hundreds of different combinations. Invite Abbot Roo and Timothy Walton for a nice dinner and discuss the future of Redhaven with these mighty men. Call for Bud (if he's alive) and play long sessions of PP-RPGs in your living room. Arrange a psy-trance party with drugs, booze and pleasure slaves, invite everyone you know and throw a $4000 dinner to gain a massive amount of Influence, or something entirely different. The choice is yours.

Stretch goal II ($2000) – Prostitution Update - REACHED (In development)!
  • Features an additional market in Watery Eyes that'll have several new items to purchase.
  • Assign an unlimited number of slaves as street workers at several different locations.
  • Track and control your slave's progress, events, and other details regarding their profession as hookers.
  • A street girl can work her way up to the top where you'll be able to assign her to wealthy patrons that might have very special kinks.
  • A famous and sought-after pleasure slave might go all the way up to the Mastersphere.
  • 2 new sets of clothes.
  • Many, many lewd renders of all available slaves in MoR.

Stretch goal III ($2500)!
The Legacy update features a new "wife slot" that enables you to marry one of your slaves after freeing her, as you cannot legally marry a slave in Ikaanos. 
  • Pregnancy. Take your wife off the DuraLube and impregnate her. All slaves will have at least two different pregnancy renders.
  • Offspring. Let your new wife give birth to your offspring and watch her/him grow up, and finally enter the game as a "Domestic Servant" at age 10.
  • Many different interaction events with your wife, including sex.
  • Marrying a girl frees up her old slave slot and enables you to take in a new servant.
  • Wife roles. Making a broken/devoted girl your wife will practically turn her into a glorified slave, but allowing her Willpower to grow, or marrying a stronger woman, might cause her to assert more and more control over your household, and take actions against other slaves depending on her Traits and personality. 
  • Skip time. If you have enough cash at hand and no active events/quests, you're able to let the game jump one month per click instead of one day.

 
Please feel free to post about your own suggestions – either here or on our Discord. Some of these features (either suggested or mentioned above) might be included in future Subscribestar polls.

Poll time - 0.8.0.1


Now that 0.8 is mostly done, it's time to start planning for the big service patch that's due out in late August/early September. In addition to tweaking/bug-fixing 0.8's features and preparing the foundations for 0.8.1 (Legacy/Prostitution), this patch will include:

  • Miss Devious expansion - a lore-heavy and render-rich Bondage course + One new Bondage book.
  • Homeschooling mechanics for Medicine.
  • Various Medicine tweaks.
  • Caitlin's special quest (The Blind Hunt).

As always, we'll let MoR's community decide the final point on this list.

  1. Maid's Dress - with one unique render for each slave.
  2. Outskirt expansion - one additional jungle district to visit - with various megafauna enemies and two PoI's.
  3. Lovisa's quest (expanded) - with renders and stories from her childhood and early teens.

Version 0.8e and progress report


0.8e has been released and can now be downloaded from the Tier3+ post below! This version features all planned content due in 0.8 and a bunch of new renders compared to the last Alpha - 0.8d(II). 
Note that 0.8e is NOT save-game compatible with 0.7.9.4. I hope to get a decently working patcher out before the public release.
 
NEXT STEP
While not crunching bugs and setting up renders, I've begun working on the special starting templates (MoR Enhanced) that'll be a permanent addition to the Tier4+ versions of Masters of Raana. It basically features a set of high-level (optional) starting characters that'll replace the Alpha test cheats, while being more integrated into the lore/setting with unique dialogues and other graphics-related changes. Want to start the game as a rich magnate, or walk the streets of Ikaanos as a legendary warrior? Or perhaps you'd like to enthrall your slaves (and the rest of Raana) by playing as a renowned playboy with looks that rival Earth's most famous movie stars?
In addition to MoR Enhanced, I'm also currently building the foundation for the Domestic Servant Engine that'll be an important framework to the Prostitution and Legacy Update, which are the next big content addons after 0.8.0.
I hope to have some cool screenshots of both MoR Enhanced and the DSE next week! See you guys then!

0.8d(II) has been released (Tier4+)! 


This version contains all of 0.8's systems – with fully implemented Fear and Defiance frameworks.

As with the earlier releases, 0.8d(II) also has hundreds of tweaks and bugfixes that are too numerous to mention here. They have, however, made this the most stable 0.8 version so far, and any new game that you'll start from now on will be fully aligned with the public release.

In addition to the Defiance and Fear frameworks' 10,000 words, there are also at least 1,000 lines of new dialogue spread over many situations and events, including some very good contributions from users Hargan and

Tahoe8754 . Last, but not least, this release contains over 25 bondage scenes with Aria, several new sex scenes and some other hidden goodies.

Next version (0.8e, Tier3+), out in one or 1.5 weeks, is the final Alpha release before the public build goes live. 0.8e will feature Aria's first quest, more Defiance/random events, some changes to the UI/pictures and a bunch of new renders.

You can read more about Fear and Defiance here:

MoR Wiki  (Defiance)

ETA Alpha 0.8d(II)


Hello guys! Following the 0.8d discord release two days ago, I'm now hammering out a more refined version that'll contain all 0.8 features except Aria's first quest (expedition to the Corazon jungles).

The 0.8d(II) version will be out on Thursday or Friday, depending on when I get the Defiance framework completed. Hopefully, 0.8e gets released about 1.5 weeks after 0.8d(II), and that is also the last Alpha version before public release.  

It's really exciting to be so close to finishing 0.8. It's MoR's biggest update to this date, and I've spent many hundreds of hours churning out the new code and frameworks that'll carry Masters of Raana to a completely new level. However, I would've had to spend hundreds of additional hours if it wasn't for MoR's great community - text contributors, bug hunters, suggestions and all the thorough playtesting from our Alpha team. THANK YOU!

Okay, see you all on Thursday/Friday for the 0.8d(II) release!

Alpha version 0.8c(II) has been released!


A refined version of the 0.8c Alpha archive has now been launched and includes a large amount of new content compared to 0.8b.

Here are some major features for the 0.8c branch:

Stamina revamp 
To meet the growing actions one can do in Ikaanos, Stamina points are now aligned/merged with the Stamina value of our MC. You'll have more Stamina Pts. to burn from the start and automatically raise your max Stamina Points when you increase your Stamina attribute. The effects from the old Stamina value remain unchanged - it still determines Stamina Point regeneration and damage mitigation in combat.

Revamped Chemistry books
Removed all chemistry books from the game and replaced them with Medicine/herbal books that raise Medicine, Science and Intelligence. • Added two new Medicine books to Secret Garden Bookstore.

Caitlin Tensor
Meet one of 0.8's new slaves: Miss Caitlin Tensor. Marvel at her fascinating stories and delve into her troublesome past during late-night dinners.

The 0.8c update includes almost her entire wardrobe.

New art (Aria)
Aria's wardrobe has now been finished, including all her Inspect pics. There's also one finished sex scene with the MC (beginning of Oral Sex).

Download links can be found in the Tier4+-only post below.

Goals

$2,000
THE GOAL
REACHED!
After reaching this goal I'll start working on an advanced prostitution engine, which opens the entire Ikaanos area for your street workers. Control everything - locations, level of degradation, clothes, if they should work in pairs and a lot more. This update also includes new skimpy outfits that add to both their success and exposure. A working girl levels her "fame" and have the chance to find a patron that might want to lend her for "special occasions" that could take her all the way to the Mastersphere.
$2,500
THE GOAL
REACHED!
The Legacy Update. Marry a slave and turn her into a household matriarch. This stretch goal enables pregnancy, offspring and many interesting interactions in your household, who's now governed by a new power besides the MC. You can read more about this in the "Stretch Goal" post here on SSA.
