A Prophecy Undone is set in a world named Iomarion, where two nations, Istegar and Sútfold, are locked in a never-ending war against each other.
They said destiny was immutable. They said the chosen one could not die. They said prophecies would come true, one way or another.
They were wrong.
Your father, chosen of Ateus, was supposed to unite Sútfold and Istegar. Yet on the eve of the final victory, he was murdered, by none other than his trusted Hand. When you tried to expose the traitor, your words fell on deaf ears. Instead, the late king’s death was blamed on assassins in Sútfold ranks.
Deceived by these lies, vengeful knights of Istegar gathered in front of the Sútfold court, demanding blood. It was inevitable that the night of celebration devolved into a feast of slaughter. Afterwards, both parties retreated to nurse their wounds. Your uncle took your father’s place, and you were demoted from heir to spare.
Will you attempt to take your rightful place back? Will you make the Hand pay for their treachery? Most importantly, will you fulfil the prophecy in your father’s stead?

- Play as a vengeful prince/princess and customise your personality and appearance.

- Choose your divine ally carefully. Will it be Ateus, the Lord of Light, or Ulfric, the Great Winter Wolf? Or will it be none of them?
- Discover what really happened during that fateful night. Learn the scheme of your enemy, and punish them for what they have done.
Alternatively, fall in love with them.

Ingvar/Ingvild (Gender selectable: M/F)
Previously a Northman, the sellsword fled south after they defected from the Wolfpacks of Ulfric. You found them when they were homeless and starving, and made them your blade. They will serve you faithfully as long as you keep the coins flowing.
Lysander/Lysandra (Gender selectable: M/F)
Your father’s killer was no longer the young person they once were, but time only made them an even more dangerous foe. Now at the height of their power, no one - sometimes not even the king himself - dares to say no to their request.
Desmond/Desmonda (Gender selectable: M/F)
The Speaker of Ateus is said to have high hopes of becoming the next Lightbearer. Kind and compassionate, they have many friends among the commoners, but their unwillingness to please the nobles made them unpopular in upper circles.
The mysterious envoy from the North turns out to be a Seasider. You sense too many contradictions in this woman — it makes you wonder.
And one more RO to come!
I welcome any form of feedback, be it grammar, coding, or the flow of the scenes. Keep in mind that English is not my first language, and my writing experience largely consists of short stories with convoluted plots. This is the first time I try something longer with romance included, and I hope the related scenes don’t come off as weird. Thanks a lot for reading my work.

If you guys are interested in reading (and pointing out errors) a few days prior to the public releases, then you are welcome to join! Or if you just want to discuss stuff related to this IF. For now, it is a very small server intended for a small group, and I won’t be there 24/7 (work to do, papers to write sad adult life noises). So it’ll be a pretty casual environment
Which destination did you choose? (I will prioritise the content for the most popular route in Chapter 7. After that, I will update accordingly.)
This one will be closed on 24/4/2023.
