So I gave up on Harlowe and started using sugarcube instead. I find it is much easier to understand, but I’m actually not entirely sure why that is.

I have some Python experience and a bit of JavaScript and CSS and most likely it’s because sugarcube follows a similar logic. I think the primary reason is because although I’m far from proficient I can still read it and understand it and how the structure works.

That said, I’ve started to set up Chains of Command using sugarcube instead of Harlowe, and this means a lot of rework. In the long run I suspect it may be worth it.

So far there’s a character select and an introduction. Only somewhere around 160 nodes to go.
