Her Majesty's Matchmakers"Things Get Worse!" The Princess Gabrielle Hawke is turning seventeen in three month's time. As is tradition in her family, she must find a husband before her seventeenth birthday; if she doesn't, she will be disinherited, leaving her foul half-sister and her wicked husband to lay claim to her lands and titles. Fearing for both herself and the welfare of her people should this awful fate come to pass, Gabrielle has spent the better part of the last two years searching for love but finding only self-serving ambition and unabashed lust. She has almost given up all hope of finding some semblance of happiness, when she heard the tale of great heroes that move through the land, righting wrongs with sword, skill, and sorcery. Calling upon her loyal servants, she calls a group of such individuals to her. You are either one of her servants or one of these great heroes. You will be called to her chambers, and given a very unique quest: to find a suitable husband for the Princess. Should you require some incentive for such a selfless act, she is quite disappointed - but offers one hundred thousand gold coins in reward for such a deed. You will find a great many willing to take the Princess' hand in marriage, but not all of them are what they seem. You'll need an inquisitive mind and a keen eye to find a proper love for Her Majesty... after all, the fate of the Kingdom rests in your hands. Things Get Worse:I don't intend for this to be an easy game. I intend to throw complications and twists upon the party, making it a very difficult choice on what to do, which suitors to trust, and which to distrust. There's going to be some action, some politics, some comedy - and perhaps even some romance blossoming among the characters themselves? As for how you react to them, that's entirely up to you! Let's see what you come up with. A creative mind can go far - holding a tournament for Her Majesty's hand, for instance, seems like a great idea... until it comes time to see those showing up. The Ten Suitors:These young men and women are all interested in Princess Hawke's hand in marriage. However, not all of them are as they seem, and even more of them are grave mistakes. It's up to you to determine which ones are suitable! These are intended to be NPC's, by the way. The nine you don't pick will likely be offended in some way and come after you! Of course, it's possible that none of these are good choices, or the ones that would be a good choice have to be 'worked on' a bit. I'm curious to see how you handle this!- Lord Raymond Haris of Hartshire (Foreign Duke).- Sir William Refford (Knight).- Leah Molliann (Bard).- Orbak the White-Haired (Sorcerer).- Bartholomew Utgarde (Merchant Prince).- King Devin Earlwich (King of Earlwich).- King Hload Rouldrey (King of Rouldrey).- Osmurd Bloodscreech (Gnoll Chieftain).- Lady Selune Autumnmoon (Elven Princess).- Zazuka Heihachi (Foreign Crime Lord/Yakuza Boss).
