Thank you everyone for your time and questions! ^^
@tooweiss @Sophia @matt_smith At the moment, I only have male ROs planned. I might add in a couple of female ROs later on. At the moment, I want to focus on the three or four suitors I have planned.
@Ramidel I have been considering this option for a while now too. Marriage does not equal romance, and while my original notes was for this to be a romance with whomever Alexandra marries, this could definitely be a possibility. However, this would only be possible with one suitor, because the other two have personalities that would make this impossible.
@Rogar Thank you so much! I’m very happy you enjoyed it. I know I said Victorian-era, but it leans far more toward a blend of late-Regency, early-Victorian, and the latter years of the Holy Roman Empire. It’s so much fun to mix-and-match these different cultures, societies, and whatnot to create worlds. The eye colours are planned to slightly affect the stats, but not by much. I’m still on the fence about them, and I’m glad you like the comments.
@VioletHikari Oh, thank you; that totally slipped my mind. I’ve already gone back and fixed it on my end, and I will try to update the demo sometime this weekend. I’m glad you enjoyed it ^^
@Seraphinite I feel quite honoured that you like it! I love The Lady’s Choice and The Wayhaven Chronicles. I was a bit worried that the character introductions wouldn’t flow very well, but I’m glad it seems they work.
@Anathema You’ve pretty much described my favourite setting and plot. Father really does care about all his children, and he does love dear Alexandra, but she’s a bit more complicated than his other children.
@lokidemon007 Yep, he really is her father. Mother Annalena was too devout a woman to possibly consider anything else.
@Okami-Nora Definitely there will be more interactions with the family, but most of it will be with Father Burkhard, Benedikt, Gisela, and Stepmother Regina. By the time the story starts, the older sisters are out of the house and married, and the younger brothers are too young to affect anything, so they will be put in the general ‘Family’ relationship bar. Now that you bring it up, I do think it is a bit squished together, so I’ll move that scene to the end of the prologue, and put in some scenes with the main family members. Thanks for your input!
Just a few quick things to note while they’re still fresh in my mind:
- I hope to update by the end of this month, if school permits it. I have the stats and skills mostly figured out now, so they will be put in, but relationships will not be available yet.
- The complete prologue will have several scenes with the family, and will finish by the time Alexandra is sixteen. All ROs will be introduced by the end of it. The courtship chapters will take place two years after when she is eighteen.
- This is gender-locked to female. If MC were a male, the story would be completely different, because there would not be the societal and cultural pressure and expectation to marry. An aristocratic son who does not inherit is expected to work, while an aristocratic daughter only has the option to marry.
Again, thanks for your comments everyone, they are very much appreciated and very encouraging to read!
