    As the ruler of a province in the Western Peninsula, it will be expected of you to hold court and make yourself available to petitioners, settling disputes, and delivering justice to the land and its inhabitants. You can play a demo of the game here.

    Let's start from the beginning. Should we Create a character, making our lord/lady and our noble House from scratch, or should we do a Quick character and go straight to the action?

    Gender mostly affects who we can marry or romance, but can also open/close certain pathways and endings.

    Are we Male or Female?

    It's done in ChoiceScript, the scripting language used by Choice of Games and Hosted Games.

    Character creation can be a bit complex, so let's carry on with it. We are female, but what's our name?

    Anwyn, Larieth, Gvana, Vhonda, Zebille, Margreth, Faylinn, Nerulla or another one?

    Don't think there's a difference, we could as well give our own name.

    No difference here, but the important choices start next. Feel free to come up with any name.

    What can be said about House Lorston's origins?

    A) Old and proud. I descend from a long western lineage.
    B) Raiders from the sea. I descend from ancient northern settlers.
    C) Late and ambitious. I descend from well-positioned easterners favored by royalty and rewarded with land.
    D) Southern settlers. My ancestors fled from the Cataclysm and fought their way into nobility.
