What is the gift?
The gift differs from person to person but it's true ability has always been the same.
The gift can change the world."
In this story you play as Januis, a.k.a the 'Alm of the Heavens', Januis has lived at the monastery all her life under the watchful care of the monks, her many caretakers, religious scholars, and a small battalion of soldiers. She has been preparing for the Ceremony since she were a young girl, and in a few days time the Solitaire Knights will be chosen and arrive at her doorstep. It is her duty to choose whom she gives her gift to, who she will bond her soul with, who she will be partnered with for the rest of her life. She is the gift, and therefore becomes their property.
Unfortunately, not everyone's desires are as pure as she would like to believe.
The Alm of the Heavens, she has been guarded from the sins of the outside world ever since her birth, although she has a very kind, warm, and energetic personality her mind is still in a childlike state.
Januis' childhood friend and the Knight of Hearts, he works at Januis' monastery though he seems to keep the details of his job a secret. He has a very responsible and loyal personality, and a rather obvious crush on our protagonist.
The Knight of Clubs, a very quiet, brooding, and mysterious character from the Southern countries. She dislikes to speak much, and keeps much of her background to herself.
A high-strung and moody individual from the island nation of Cail and the Knight of Spades. He seems to resent being Chosen, resents Januis, and frequently goes out of his way to avoid her. He frequents the library often.
The Knight of Diamonds, Xi comes from the island of Aris, a nation somewhat at war with the island of Cail. He holds strong animosity against Veri'ma, who isn't interested in a confrontation. He has a very crafty and mischievous personality.
Ah, hello, this is my first VN so I'm INCREDIBLY nervous! Excited too! (But still rather nervous...) This is a small project I'm working on by myself, with the help of a couple of friends who will proofread and playtest for me. This may, at first glance seem to be a romance story, but it's really really not. This is something that's rather new to me so I have no idea how this will turn out, but it should be fun having a go anyway! In essence I'm intending this story to focus on the duality of human nature, I hope it turns out okay. I'll post regular updates and upload a couple of my sketches later on. Have a good NaNoRenO everyone!
