A proclamation from the royal house. All gentlemen from the ages 18 to 21, heed this announcement. In light of Princess Sophie Elizabeth Foster Ruewen's eighteenth birthday last week, a selection has been declared. All those who meet the age requirement are eligible to enter the selection. Thirty-five names will be drawn at random, a representative for each province of the Kingdom of Eternalia. The selected will be taken to the castle, where they will spend fifty-two weeks in the presence of Her Highness. Gradually, your number will be narrowed until the remaining ten, otherwise known as the Elite, are left. Leaving one to be singled out as Her Highness's husband, and eventually, our king. During your time at the palace, families of the selected will be sent a monthly stipend. You will be given stationary to write weekly and keep in contact with your loved ones. You will be provided all living necessities, as well as bonuses that can be gifted through achievements or her highness's favor. Good luck to all, but bear this warning in mind. Though it will be an unforgettable experience, you will be tested, tried, and assessed like never before. The requirements will be strict and many, but the rewards great. The selected will be announced in one week. Thank you and good night Eternalia.
