'Recuing' the 'Distressed' Princess [KN][Light-hearted Fantasy][NaNo 2018]

A short-ish kinetic novel about 2 knights in shining armor (not really) falling in love plus the normal everyday life of a runaway princess with her dragon housemate.
SYNOPSIS

"Oh, guests? We rarely see travelers around here. Welcome! "

The beautiful princess of Alsgard was apparently kidnapped by a savage, evil dragon. Acting according to his family's wish, Baron Lucien Adelsburg set out on a journey to rescue her. Along the way, he somehow found himself a companion: Prince Idwal of the neighboring country Velvede.
It took them two months to discover where the dragon's lair might be, and two more to travel to where it was. They faced many harships along the way, but the two pressed on, determined. Swords in hands, they were ready for a life-or-death battle with the dragon to bring the princess back.
But...


"...What's with this peaceful atmosphere? Why is the dragon's lair such a small and cozy house???”

As it turned out, the princess wasn't kidnapped. And she wasn't a damsel in dítress at all

CHARACTERS
Image
  • Dreyrk
    A dragon. Bellona’s supposed kidnapper. In actuality, they’re a gentle and friendly fellow. Can be quite of an airhead at times. They live in a forest in Velvede, close to the border of Alsgard. Welcomes the new guests warmly, even if their original purpose was to kill Dreyrk.
  • Princess Bellona Alsgard | 21
    Princess of Alsgard. The “damsel in distress”. She had been living peacefully with Dreyrk for a year. A bit grumpy and can come off as snooty at times, she absolutely loves her new peaceful life with the bubbly dragon, so she doesn’t like the 'knights' too much.
  • Prince Idwal Velvede | 22
    The taciturn, dutiful and capable youngest prince of Velvede. Alsgard asked Velvede for help rescuing the missing princess, and Idwal set out on behalf of the royal family. He traveled the country with Idwal to look for Princess Bellona. Is fully aware of Lucien’s feelings but keeps his thought on it a secret.
  • Baron Lucien Adelsburg | 25
    An outgoing, charismatic and irresponsible person.He was forced by his family volunteered to be the one to travel to the dragon’s lair and rescue the princess. At first, he couldn’t care less about the quest, but after meeting Idwal and develop feelings for him, he started to become quite invested in it.

This looks adorable. I always love the whole "dragon is actually pretty nice" idea, but the two knights adds another layer to the story that I think is really cool. I hope to see more of this. c:

This looks like a really cute story, and the character designs are cool! I like Idwal's outfit. :) Also, one of my favorite books as a kid was about a princess living with a nice dragon, so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing something like that in a game.

This looks sweet, I'm really looking forward to your project! The GUI looks amazing and I love those character concepts! Especially their color schemes, it fits so well with the GUI and overal makes a cohesive feel for the game. Can't wait to see more progress! :D
