The King has been murdered. The only witnesses, his sons, gather to determine who committed the foul deed - and, more importantly, decide upon the heir to the throne. There is not much time. If a successor is not named by sundown, the agreements that the King had struck with Crow, the demon-god of trickery, will be broken and the kingdom will perish in a tide of blood and fire.
Can you save your fathers kingdom?
Witness the Murder of Your Father and Be Ashamed, Young Prince is a short-form fiction game for 3-6 players.
