On Hold.


Synopsis.

The night your grandmother passes, the deity tells of a prophecy that spreads like wildfire throughout the kingdoms.

And suddenly you are praised.

They want you to give them something extraordinary, but they aren't prepared for a gift that will shake the empire to its very core. 

So then you are scorned.

Hello, and welcome to Deity's Gift.

This is an interactive wip in the earliest stages, and currently, only the prologue is available. Once I learn more about twine it will most definitely be updated in terms of looks, though now, you'll have to bare with me(I know it looks awful).

Go here for my tumblr: my development blog! There, you'll be able to ask questions and learn about Ros!

I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS I've always loved stories set in palaces with nobility and stuff, so I'm really looking forward to this one! The writing is lovely, and the start also seems promising, so I'm very excited for the next update!

Thanks so much for making this! I love it so far! I wanted to let you know that we've mentioned it in our list of recommended Twine stories. But if that's not okay just let me know. You can view it here, let us know if there are any other details we should add for your title --> https://itch.io/t/1763600/twine-games-with-character-customization-part-1

I like what I have read as of yet and look forward to when I can read more

There are a few typo here and there that you should check again, not so much that it will be hard to understand though. But besides that, the story is really good!

The plot is amazing 🤩 just one thing ; pronounces for simone and theodora often change between he and she please fix this it feels wierd that characters change gender each line

I am already in love with this. I just wanted to let you know that in the second part of the prologue, when you're in the kitchen, it doesn't keep the pronoun of Simon. You're talking to him, but then it says 'she shakes her head...' instead of 'he'. Other than that, everything else looks good!! :D

Another thing I noticed. In the gardens there's a spot where it says "yet the $mctitle makes no move". $mctitle is not declared.
