Yep, Jade's playable. Anyone's playable. This is a pretty sandbox-esque Dating Sim.
Thanks for the heads up (again) on the typo (again).
And thanks to all people who are reading this now! That's really cool. I hope I can make this entertaining.
Aaand finally to Aipom, I made the sprites, actually! It's really flattering that you would compare them to Gaia, because I am not a pixel artist at all. I never would have thought the quality was anywhere near that.
> Kanaya: Go unpack your walking aid.
No way! Your mother keeps getting on you about your low STRENGTH stat, so she bought you that stupid thing when you were 13. It's so embarrassing. You refuse to take it out in front of Jade.
> Kanaya: She's strong; you're not. Find a way to make her carry you. > Kanaya: Use GIRL TECH LEVEL NINE: FAKE FAINTING to get Jade to carry you the rest of the way.
You try your best to pull off a classy swoon. "Oh, if only some big strong weeaboo could carry me~!"
> Jade: Do something adorable
You bravely step forward to escort the young damsel in distress more efficiently!
> Kanaya: Proceed to principal's office.
This will be much faster. And much easier on those soggy strings you call 'muscles'. As an added bonus, you gain 1 more RELATIONSHIP POINT with Harley.
> Kanaya: talk to Jade about the school as she walks to the principal's office. > Get to know Jade better on your way to the principals office.
> Kanaya: "What can you tell me about yourself?"
Jade: Welll, I was being homeschooled, at first. My Grandpa is a scientist, so I got to learn at a faster pace than a lot of people.
Jade: But this creepy guy was following me around, so Grandpa sent me here.
Kanaya: Creepy guy?
Jade: Bete Noir.
This is the most information you can extract at this relationship level.
> Kanaya: Ask Jade if she's already met Principal Scratch.
> Kanaya: "What can you tell me about Principal Scratch?"
Jade: You mean Doctor S. Kracht?
Jade: Yeah, I've met him. He usually only talks to students with a CHARM STAT of at least 8.
Jade: He kind of creeps me out, personally! And the VICE PRINCIPAL, Miss Numan, seems kind of harsh sometimes.
Jade: They're both really obsessed with impressing SUPERINTENDENT ENGLISH.
> Kanaya: Get the lowdown on the major players in the school from Jade. It's always good to know the social hierarchy before you start. > Kanaya: "What can you tell me about the other students?"
Jade: Oh, right, I should warn you! Be careful if you ever wander into the BLUE WING.
Jade: The girls there can be kind of mean. Especially Vriska and Terezi!
Jade: They like to mess with people who come from less prestigious families a lot.
Jade: Some students aren't really as fortunate as us, you know?
Jade: Aradia, for example, is here on a scholarship.
Jade: She has this, uh, burn on her face. It kind of makes the bullying worse. I heard her house burnt down a while ago or something.
Jade: Prestige and lineage are kind of really big deals with some of the other girls.
Jade: Even the principals can get kind of biased sometimes.
Jade: There are a few other girls who are super high on the SOCIAL STRATA, but you probably won't run into them.
Jade: Your CHARM or INTELLIGENCE would have to be crazy high!
Jade: That's about it. Here you are!
> Kanaya: Go to principal's office and then PLATONICALLY thank Jade for being a wonderful guide.
She most certainly deserves a thankyou! You give her a PLATONIC hug. You even go as far as a PLATONIC kiss on the CHEEK.

Kanaya: Be curiously unfazed. Report that your chosen electives are Culinary Arts, Music History, and Badminton (a fashionable sport for the desirable woman that requires virtually no physical strength to succeed in).
Also you want to join the sewing club, obviously. Teach those fools how it's done.
Kanaya: Choose Botany, Creative Writing, and Drama as your electives.
Seconding Sewing club, or swap sewing club and drama as needed. Canon Kanaya cultivated an oasis, remember? (doesn't necessarily mean anything here, means we could spend time with Jade though. C.Writing also means running into Rose)
EDIT: Ask the good Doctor how many students attend this prestigious academy. (obviously there are only going to be 10 dateable characters or so, possibly a few more, but how large is the school for flavor reasons?)
