    Since there seem to be some people mulling things over, I'll let this run for the night.

    (I am also totally amused by the lack of focus for Elodie, but come on -- she's learning by committee. Focus is a crapshoot)

    Yeah, let's just say that the Elodie's I made after getting the game were a lot more focused. I just won with my second one who was a rather rude, undiplomatic and thoroughly unathletic girl who handled things purely through magic, espionage and military and economic dominance. The epilogue rather strongly hinted that she might go on the offense later.

    So for contrast I'm gonna try to make a thoroughly diplomatic Elodie this time.

    Okay, after I saw this thread a few days ago I ended up going and getting the full version of this game, and having a fair bit of fun with princesses dying all over the place (or more, one place over and over).

    I'm not sure how much I should vote now that I've played it about seven times (and made it to coronation once!), but my advice would be going to see dad, since that actually gives a bonus to willful anyway (also depressed isn't a very useful emotion right now, I don't think).

    Oh, and thanks Deme, for introducing me to a new awesome game.

    I believe I've tried seven or eight times myself as well. I reached coronation on my second attempt, but after that I've died on all sorts of different spots. Once I even managed to run away rather than die. It's really fun and for the price of a Danish movie ticket, it wasn't a hard decision to make to buy it.

    I'm glad I've introduced some people to this fun game. I wonder what your checklists all look like. I've gotten to coronation about 4 dstinct times, and died...A fair amount.

    Anyway, anyone dissappointed in our Elodie could always push to start it from the top should she die...Or we could keep working with what we've got! We can do it!...Probably. When deaths start occuring, I'm basically leaving you the point to which we go back to fix things totally up to the vote -- you could even go back and make totally unrelated choices differently (though that might result in it taking more time to recover, or 'recover' differently). I'm still hoping you guys pull out a surprising game for me.

    Ok, so we're going to Visit Dad. This gives us a point of willfull, so we are now officially Willful. From our reference...
    Willful Boosts: Lumen (still not an option), Intrigue, Military
    Willful Penalizes: Royal Demeanor (surprise, right?), History, Economics (huh, apparently something does penalize economics. But nothing bonuses it.)

    I'm a little worried about all the metagaming towards Accounting. Yes, that's cool that y'all want to make her all magical and stuff.... But shouldn't we be worried about skills that will be needed in the immediate future, not further down the line?

    Chapter 7 - Week 5 - Mood: Willful
    Spoiler
    Show

    Last time, we decided to ask Dad for our allowance crystal.

    We're refreshingly direct about this.


    But it can be in a safer place. With us.

    "Can I have it?"
    "No."

    This whole thing is really, really direct about that.


    "Meddling with magic killed your mother. I don't want that to happen to you."
    But...But...What if *not* meddling with magic kills us?
    Also, so apparently it wasn't Julianna in a direct sort of 'smoking crystal' way. Just sort of being all magical, which Julianna's involved in.


    Dad, you usually don't stop us from doing what we want anyway. Why only now?

    Anyway, to classes. I broke the tie between Foreign Affairs, Courtly Manners, and Public Speaking in favor of Courtly Manners.

    Shown: Willful face.
    Also Shown: some stuff about Aunt Lucille. Basically, she said she had right to Merva, so...Actually, I'm not sure I understand this. But what it sounds like the game's saying is that Lucille thinks she should be duchess in her own right, not duchess-consort. Good to know.


    And some stuff for dealing with snobs!


    We don't know about that place.


    We had several ways of knowing about that place, but failed wholly. Had I broken the tie the other way, we'd have learned where that is. However, we'd not pass another, more important, check today.


    We do, however, look rather silly.

    Maid:"They have brought you a letter, and a gift."


    Sounds like a standard "Sorry your mom is worm-food" letter.

    "Oh! What a beautiful necklace!"

    Aaaaaannnd.... We passed a check! Hoorah!


    And for it, get a choice. We can either wear the necklace, making people suspect things of us that we may or may not be able to confirm or deny...
    Or we can not wear it.

    Your call, folks!


    Well...What shall we do about our present?

    Sure, Elodie is wilful enough now that maybe the opinion of the court wouldn't matter much to her. But if she wore the necklace the Duke of Sedna might think that Elodie owes him something or that he has staked some sort of claim on her.

    Elodie is a free and independent spirit, darn it!

    People, if we enter into a courtship with the Duke of Sedna that means he has a vested interest in keeping us alive and on the throne. Where as if we don't wear it we might offend him.

    I'd say wear it. Having an ally, even if he's a foreign duke, would help make Elodie's life a lot safer, even if it means marrying him later.

    If people think we can be bought and used, then they will attempt to buy and use us, instead of just killing us and doing whatever they want. I vote we wear it.

    Interesting game.

    You have to love our princess start with 0 in every stars and has apparently learn nothing in her boarding chool, not even mathematics or geography. How much you think they payed for tuition ?

    Don't wear it, I'd say.

    It seems we may finaly be in the right mood to learn a bit of intruigue, we probably should consider learning some more. (Internal apphairs seems the one with the mst gerneral usage but I'm kind of curious about 'cypher')
    And some Composure at some point too, we can't have a queen that faint and can't kep her cool at every assassination atempt (why do I suspect there'll be many many more ?)

    I say don't wear the necklace. Wearing it will make it look like we're looking to foreigners for support, which will provoke the local nobility.
