@PisceanLover thanks, you're sweet
Ugh, that wouldn't just be like writing another branch, but an alternate story attached to the main one. All in all, the elope ending would be kind of an early ending where everything is ambiguous and you aren't sure if they threw everything away for a better tomorrow or ran into their deaths.
Well, if you're playing a (cis) male MC, yeah, you can't marry men; that message was for @Lizzy, who plays a lesbian MC (so of course she can't have her character marry another woman). Unions that can't bring children into the world (as in, it's 100% safe to say that there won't be kiddies because it's biologically impossible) need to meet several conditions for it to be fully valid (no chances of a future annulment) and have no one bothering them.
I'll put an example, though it's a spoiler about the MC's uncle;
Adonis had this very problem, his marriage got annulled because of one of these pesky stipulations.
Adonis was married to a man named Lawren Mallow, but their heiress (his cousin, Poppy) died without children. Since there was no one left, that meant that Lawren was the next in line and had to take the position as the Head of the Mallow Family. Long story short, that made his marriage to Adonis null (as if it never happened, since what we understand as divorces are not a thing here) so he could marry someone else who could give him children and continue with the Mallow line.
That's one of the many reasons as to why Adonis is so bitter about a lot of things, lives on the Borders.
...As I said in many occasions, I refuse to answer anything regarding the MC's height (and constitution, but that doesn't seem to be so important) anymore. I planned it as a game feature, like more in-depth character traits that are not visible or the clothes and reputation, but I'm tempted to remove it all together and make it set in stone.
Anyways, things to expect for the next update:
— Chapter I:
- MC's toddler years.
- Some plot-related events.
- A bunch of NPCs.
- MC older than a toddler.
- Meeting Ava/Aaron.
