I’ve seen a lot of people against them, and my original intent was to be extremely sparing with them. What kinds of things do people think are worth spending gems on? I hate spending them on completely common-sense reactions, and other things like that, so my plan was to do something like a “paid content” option. There are zero gem choices in the entire storyline: outfits, actions, reactions, conversation responses, etc are not gem-locked. However, they can be used to persuade characters to open up about their past via items that can be found in scenes and later returned to characters, which then triggers the character’s gratitude and a piece of their backstory that is linked to the item.
My quick question is whether or not people would actually consider that a good use of gems if it doesn’t affect the story at all?
