#2

Can you play as nb as well as female?


#3

Sorry I didn’t know what nb meant,but you will be able to play as both male and female.


#4

Yes, but will you be able to play as non-binary (nb)?


#6

No, I mean by nb I can play as neither male nor female, identifying as neither binary gender regardless of genitals.

Romance doesn’t come into it.


#7

Ah… crap wikipedia


#8

Your post is filled to the brim with harmful misinformation and has a slightly transphobic edge to it (equating “real” gender with genitals/sex). I’ve flagged it because I don’t wish to address every harmful point at this time.

Please educate yourself thoroughly before you speak on behalf of us again.


#9

Uh… Sorry. Shouldn’t do that again


#10

Thank you for explaining,I may not include romance in this game so the purpose of choosing your gender is so that i can add titles such as Baron/Baroness,Duke/Duchess to your name.But I’ll do my best to add a third option if I can figure out how to bestow titles


#11

There’s a topic on this called “Noble Nouns” or something. Slap it into the search bar, that should help.

As for titles, you can always make up your own to fit in with your world-building! Else, here are a few to start you off:


#12

Could be nice. How long do you plan for it to be though? Could you give us a snippet on some interesting characters? :wink: Im a sucker for those~
( Also, you should at least credit the artist :sweat_smile:, as an artist myself I dislike it when people just repost it haha)


#14

I would like to see a demo of this story. Everything looks good conceptually but to give feedback, I’ll need a demo.

Looking forward to seeing it.


#17

Could I choose my background as player. Like a old nobility wiped out by a rival a peasant etc… It would add a lot of replay value with no so much working


#18

Sounds cool. Is it a fantasy setting?


#19

Well I plan on making it into a total of three parts.I’ll post some snippets in the futue :wink:

As for the Image,I’ll do my best to find the original artist real soon :slight_smile:


#20

No sorry,I wanted to make this as real as possible,only swords,bows,lances and etc.


#21

Will release a short demo in time :slight_smile:


#22

Sure is,you aren’t really the first of your family that actually joins the war.There are few options with different settings that you can choose from and some are related to your family’s past


#23

Awww…what do we have to fight for, if not romance? What I mean is that romance can be a pretty good motivator, all things considered to get someone to fight.
Forced “nobility”, including opposite sex marriage and procreation usually tend to have the opposite effect for me.

Seems like our mc’s are going to rise to those levels either way if we do well-enough, but I understand you want that bit of extra baggage. My mc would perhaps like to stay at the highest “commoner” rank, particularly if it helps him avoid a forced opposite sex-marriage and all that “chivalry” stuff.


#24

Personally I would like to see a romance option to get to have a little bit more replayability. I mean you could like a common foot soldier or you might be pining after some Noble’s daughter or try to become the emperor’s spouse to eventually become the emperor or empress. I’m curious how the Stat system will work. Some people may want to be a little bit more educated so they can quickly rise in the ranks with brilliant tactics, or go in with brute force and win by valor. Depending on what exactly you place the setting I would rather be a low-ranking noble just being a plain old Joe Knight a little place that I call my own they have a family there for the next year to build upon
