Good catch, thank you! Do I understand correctly that the plague was cured, but Elpis never heard about it prior? Or did this greeting show up just like that, while the plague is still an issue?

This was after the plague was cured: Elpis had never been told about it by the player (or even unlocked as a discussion option via Thais) before the plague was cured. You can kinda speedrun the plague cure and end up getting it well before you've told most people about the plague's existence if you're willing to throw a lot of blood at it early in a run, which is what V did! It's less jarring for most of the other people because you can imagine them having not gotten the news, but with Elpis you do actively have to go confront Howler's on the way to deliver the cure so it feels more weird that she doesn't know.

Oh heck I don't think I even realised that you were here on Exilian too!
Hope everybody has had a chance to play Roadwarden by now. I just finished it last week as my first game to play after my health and vision had recovered enough. A real treat.

What with Citizen Sleeper as well last year, it feels like the future of text based games is very bright. ;-)

It sure does! Next to Citizen Sleeper, NORCO is another 2022 text-heavy classic, though instead of being an RPG, it's an adventure game.

Yes, I really enjoyed what I saw of NORCO, although I got stuck around the elevator / office section.
