Extra lore is always fun!
I would send a message to a mod or whoever is in charge. There is no harm in asking.
I know I’d donate once I am more financially stable. (I’m stuck penny-pinching at the moment).
Will we get to kill siblings?
I imagine so. No dynastic story is complete without throwing your entire family under the bus. You could ask the extended family of (pick your pre-modern royal), but they’re in various pieces.
However! My fanwank and the author’s decisions are completely separate things, so who knows?
Especially the siblings who hate the MC merely for who mom is!
Do you prefer to play as a prince or princess of Orphaesia?
That’s a great idea for a poll! I think I’ll link to it in the first post.
I’m definitely interested in seeing the results. When I’m writing, I don’t picture the protagonist as either gender – they’re sort of just this agender, faceless creature – but when I’m playing through the game, I always play a princess unless I’m testing something. I also pretty much always pick black eyes, black hair, and pale skin, as I’m very partial to the combination.
Really? Wow! Thank you! Could someone link me to the ROs please?
Usually I have a few mcs for each game I play, but in this one a female mc is definitely my favorite and only character. There is something about playing the beautiful and kind princess with a hidden wit and sharp mind, that pulls the strings to fight against her expectations without drawing an unfortunate reputation, that is just so good. Plus, Nethica.
(Btw This is still my favorite game on here, hands down. It’s just dang well written and the characters are so unique, I extend my continued full support.)
I have a prince and a princess MC. But I prefer the room I have to maneuver as the prince.
I like the Prince MC because he is a male. So I prefer playing as the Prince and Seventh child of Ophaesia.
Well you can befriend the guy as the prince too, though his “moment of curiosity” (not to mention Fawkes epic talents at dudebro speak) just begs for that highschool for the rich and privileged somewhere in Southern California AU.
First and foremost, your writing style is beautiful. Your word placement and choice seems to flow perfectly with the atmosphere that I think you’re trying to portray. I really look forward to future updates.
I’m surprised that more would rather play as a Princess.
Thank you so much! That means a lot.
I might write shorts set in that AU just for fun at some point! Lol
I am too, actually! I was fairly certain that most would play as a prince. It’s pretty neat to see how people have voted.
Prince is way cooler, particularly gay prince. Or at least it is for me, this thread seems to have larger female fanbase though Or maybe it really is all because of Nethica and his romance, for which you need a female PC.
It was honestly the first thing that struck me, regardless of the plot (which itself is enjoyable) the WAY you write is pleasant to read. There are many great books that have driving plot, but lack a pleasant flow to the way they write
So give yourself some props
Who wouldn’t want to be a cute gay prince?
(I do wonder why Nethica is so popular, though… Mavrys and Sebriel sound much cuter… )

Boy, I cannot wait to show you guys what I have cooking on the website. More in-depth character profiles on the siblings and, of course, on the RO’s. I’m planning on also releasing short stories written from the POV of those characters. I think it will be a fun way to get you guys acquainted with them — and learn some secrets — while you wait for chapter releases.
I’ll have a poll at some point to let you guys vote on whose short story you would like to read first.
