Meet Crown Princess Elodie, fourteen years old and preparing to assume the throne. The tragic death of her mother has put her on the path to coronation, but she’s got a year before she comes of age. The player has but one task — keep her alive until then.
Yes, poor, lonely Elodie lives in a dangerous world of assassins and war and backstabbing nobles and unhappy peasants. The kingdom (queendom?) of Nova has it out for this kid. Everybody wants Elodie for something, and genuine friends are a rarity. Fortunately, Elodie has full autonomy here. It’s up to her (aka you) to decide what kind of ruler she will be, and to build up her skills accordingly. Even her father, who holds the crown in her stead, acquiesces to her commands. She’s the queen, after all. Or she will be, if you can keep her from an early demise.
