The Animal Court

The Animal Court transports you to a country on the verge of collapse. Realizing that he has been blinded by the advisors in his court, the country’s king turns to his brothers for aid, but rivalry among royal blood proves to provoke old hatreds. One crusader for the people remains, but as the only lady within the king’s court, no man is willing to listen. The infuriating stagnation in progress beckons the crusader Gertrude to retreat to her idyllic country life, if only to hide in the comforting arms of her own skeletons. However, she knows that unless she can help enact rapid and drastic changes to tame the beasts within their government, the country she loves will be lost to the animal court.
