When Princess Misty is captured by the evil Badlug, she quickly mounts an escape and is nearly out the door when she discovers that her disappearance would have terrible consequences. Because without a princess, the prince won't come, and without the prince, the legendary sword that can kill Badlug also won't come. And if Misty leaves, Badlug will be infuriated, and take it out on the citizens of Grimoire. It's happened before, when Misty's own mother died while she was Badlug's prisoner, and he blew up his own castle. So Misty returns to captivity, and conspires with the citizens of the castle to bring a regime change to Grimoire. Together, they team up with the bumbling prince, get the sword, and free the kingdom.
