Bare minimum:  Name a card combo that has a better (love?) story than Twilight.

Extra credit:  Tell their story.

Extra credit pt 2:  Editor's note.

-------------------

Prince of Rats - There once was a Prince who had too much junk.  So he bought a pet rat to clean up the mess...  (Ed. note:  Caldicot medal winner, 2012.  Highly recommended, grades 2-5)

The Sage and the Patrician - It was love at first sight in a crowded market.  But would they ever find each other again?  (Ed. note:  It's nice to see LGBT+ friendly literature in the local supermarket, but the quality of this work is no better than one would expect to find from any cis hetero guilty pleasure novel.  Beggars cannot choose, one supposes.)

Duke and duchess.

They married for political reasons. It was always a loveless marriage. They only stayed together because of the children and how scandalous divorce was. Still a better love story than twilight.

they initially bonded over their love for blue glass containers and mountebank had a bunch of stuff that spice merchant could make into spices...


...but spice merchant could never get over mountebank's evil side

Breaking the rules slightly for card-shaped-thing combo: Clear case of a love triangle that, yet again, leads to both men dying and the grieving widow cursing the land on which the battle was fought.

Yet another sequel to the naughty, smutty original.  No story whatsoever.  Better love story than Twilight.

Marauder + Sea Hag

It started as a competition to see who was the meanest of the land. Their contest went on for many cycles . In the end, they realized that they were just looking for an excuse to spend time with each other. Still a better love story than twilight.

There once was a poor Vagrant who wandered from town to town, accomplishing virtually nothing. One day, a kindly business owner with wares to sell took pity upon him and gave him some job Training. He's now very successful, gathering even more green than the other Peddlers.

When Vagrant + Training came up in an IRL game, I had to laugh at Vagrant + Training = Peddler. It's even something worth doing.

Burnt Pork - An independent young Enchantress falls in love with a dark, brooding Cultist.  Alas, it was not meant to be.  (Ed. note: "A real Page-turner. Treasure Hunters and above were not as impressed.")


And the sequels...
Burnt Pork: Red Meat - While trying to forget her beloved Cultist, the Enchantress falls in love with a rugged Marauder.  Meanwhile, the Cultist despairs and goes to an Altar to trash himself.  (Ed. note: "Burnt Pork: Red Meat continues to set new standards in the porcine paranormal romance novel genre.")

Burnt Pork: Chopping Block - The Enchantress is forced to choose between her Cultist and her Marauder.  (Ed. note: Are you Team Cultist or Team Marauder?)

Burnt Pork: Sizzling Bacon - The Enchantress marries the Cultist, drawing the ire of the other Cultists after she turns a Ruined Village into a cantrip pig.  The Marauder marries the pig.  (Ed. note: Publication was marred by a leaked ending, which many preferred over the published version, and reportedly involved a very large Donation.)

Duchy Island

It's a B-list tourism destination and the actors are very corny.  The scripts haven't changed in 15 years.  Do it for the kids if you absolutely must.  Better love story than Twilight.

Every morning the Duchess went out, and every afternoon she came back with $2.  The Duke never once cared whose topdecks she may have been inspecting during that time.

That second picture raises a lot of questions, specifically "What happened to the other two girls?"

On second thought, I'd rather not hear the answer.

Using a quote from an ongoing game in your signature will sometimes be seen as violating the "don't talk about the game outside of the game thread" rule. I personally think it's bad practice.

The first picture is a family vacation of Duke and Duchess

Edit: I have an achievement idea for ShuffleIT:
"Family vacation", set aside a Duke and a Duchess with a single Island.

A chilling look inside the "spice" trade.  Insider deals, shakedowns, bribes, extortion.  A real eye-opener.

Adventurer goes to the villages at the border of the kingdom seeking new adventures. At first, he finds nothing of interest, but the ending is a cliffhanger.

In the sequel, Adventurer meets an Explorer while fighting a Sea Hag, and falls in love with her. At the same time, a Young Witch falls for the Adventurer and tries to break them up.
In a fit of rage, the Explorer teams up with the Young Witch against the unlikely pair, saying "What kind of story is this where the Adventurer falls in love with a Sea Hag!"

Graverobber

In the middle of string of recent missing Peddler cases, a Peddler is on the run from the ominous Graverobber.  The local Bishop offers protection.  Twist ending: The Graverobber is actually the good guy.  Saves Peddler from Bishop at the last minute after following her down two Highways.  (Ed. note:  Saw the twist from a mile away.  Nice lighting and acting, but the suspense was null for this reviewer. 3.5/5.)

Wandering Vassal

A story about a Lord-in-training who finds himself spending more and more time at the local Inn learning the art of song, to the exclusion of his duties.  (Ed. note:  Sort of a cosplay version of Ferris Bueller's Day Off made better by the choice to make the protagonist somewhat likeable.  Why was Matthew Brodderick ever a thing?  Score: 4/5)
