Dina looks at Albus, a confused expression on its face.

DINA: you said my friends and i were supposed to play this game

DINA: what was that all about

ALBUS: It's been predetermined that you and your friends would play.

DINA: predetermined

DINA: like someone set us up to play it

ALBUS: Correct. Somebody has arranged all the pieces to fall in such a way that you all would be participants in this round.

DINA: who

ALBUS: Somebody beyond my description.

DINA: what

DINA: man what does that even mean

ALBUS: The entity that decided upon you and your friends to play this game is not somebody I am capable of describing to you.

DINA: like...

DINA: they're beyond your vocabulary or is this some kind of weirder bullshit

ALBUS: Weirder, ahem, nonsense. Yes.

DINA: why'd they pick us, though

ALBUS: I believe that is even further beyond understanding.

ALBUS: In all likelihood, however, based upon information from previous rounds of SEED...

ALBUS: He probably chose you all because he thought it'd be funny.

DINA: because it'd be FUNNY???


ALBUS: This is his modus operandi.

ALBUS: It is possible there's greater purpose to it all that I'm unable to identify, though.

DINA: ...ok

DINA: so some indescribable dude somewhere put us all here to fuck with us

DINA: i don't get why we can't just decide not to play the game, though

ALBUS: You misunderstand.

ALBUS: No matter what happens, you play this game.

ALBUS: Your decision is irrelevant to the situation. It was always going to happen.

ALBUS: ...Don't look so scared, Dina.

DINA: i-- i'm not scared asshole

ALBUS: To be selected to play this game, despite the reasons why, is something to wear as a badge of honor.

ALBUS: There are many who would kill to be in your position.

DINA: ...

Welcome back, everyone! I hope Halloween was good for all of you. In the meantime, I've released a demo of an upcoming visual novel, Spoiler Alert! You're the Killer. It's available for free download over here, so go ahead and check it out. Thank you! Also, while I was away, we hit 50k views on this website, so that's pretty cool. Starting to feel like a full-fledged thing now! I appreciate your support and patience, and I'm glad to be back on this. See ya! -Beckett

Sorry for forgetting an update. Been busy. Content warning this week and from this point on of fire if you need that! -Beckett

1. I fucked up the date on the previous news entry. SHHH! 2. This update contains something whose coloration may be eyestraining for some. It's only for a couple panels, but proceed with caution if you're susceptible to that. 3. Hey, I opened a ko-fi! So if you want to support me monetarily to show your appreciation for Prolegomenon - or anything else I've made, honestly - you can put that right here! 4. I'm working on a visual novel project, with an aim for a demo release sometime before Halloween. Keep an ear out for that! 5. There's nothing else to say here, I just wanted five topics to discuss this update. Thanks a lot! -Beckett

Oops. Hey, we're back in business, everyone! Sorry for the delay, the trip took a bit out of me, and life's been a little busy. I've been meaning to get back to this, though, so here we are once again. Welcome back! I'd also like to say there's now a dedicated page to villagers in Prolegomenon, since there's a handful of those little guys now. Second, I'm dropping another reminder about that Discord server for Prolegomenon. It's pretty quiet in there, but it's a live announcement kinda thing, and you also have direct access to the process of me making stuff, I guess. Anyways! Have a good one. -Beckett

Hey everyone! This is the last update I'll be publishing for a couple of weeks, as I have a big trip to get ready for (and go on). I'm hoping to have updates back and running on the regular schedule by August 21st, though we'll see how that goes. Stay safe and take care! I appreciate the support! -Beckett

July 21, 2021

Sorry for skipping another update. I'll make up for it in a future update, I promise! -Beckett

July 10, 2021

Tossing this out again, since we've wrapped up one 'round' of this: you can participate in a fun murder mystery roleplay by joining the Discord server here! You don't have to participate, though - you can spectate as well if you like! Don't be shy. -Beckett
