It all began with a harmless lie.


Update: A very big thanks to Sherbet is owed from me. I thanked him already, I think. However, it doesn’t hurt to really make sure that it's stated in this description of my story-game as well. He proofread so much and found the many, upon many typos that were littered in the game. Unfortunately, this is still something that was written by me. So there might still linger some weird prose and maybe even the odd typo. Not because of any fault of Sherbet's, because the proofreading was immaculate, imo. Despite that, I hope the experience is one that is enjoyable/entertaining at the end of the day. Thanks!

Author Notes:

This story is a contest entry for EndMaster's prompt contest. It shares the same world as Foolish Princess and might even follow many similar story beats. However this can be experienced in the vein of a standalone entry. None of the characters are shared and no mention of any events or characters in Foolish Princess is made. Matter of fact, this takes place many years before Foolish Princess chronologically.

Oh, be advised that this story tackles themes such as murder and genocide, crusading times and such.
