■ Setting

The Princess is Money-Hungry

Long ago, there was an time where “power” was everything.

The monsters that threaten the people… The demon king who fearfully rules over those monsters… And the hero who defeats the demon king…

Here, the simple law of ‘survival of the fittest’ was the absolute natural rule.

However, the ages always seek change. In the flow of distant time, the peoples’ values have gradually come to change.

This is the so-called rise of capitalism.

Money is power. Money is justice. A world where even love can be bought with money has arrived.

Even if you’re just a so-called ‘Level 1 Player,’ this is an era where even you could defeat the demon king if you have money.
