Here’s an overview for Banner of the Maid:
Banner of the Maid is a strategy role-playing game (SRPG) set in an alternate French Revolution with fantasy elements.

You play as the young officer Pauline Bonaparte, leading your troops to victory in turn-based dynamic battles – but also taking part in the complex political landscape of Paris, full of intrigues and conspiracies. But Pauline is more than just a brilliant officer – she is also a Maid, one of the fabled women with mysterious powers capable of turning the tide of a battle… A deep epic story full of twists, glory, and fantasy where the destiny of the Revolution lays in your hands. After a successful release in China in May 2019, Banner of the Maid finally arrived on Western markets fully localized to English on February 14th, and now comes to consoles later this year.
In Banner of the Maid you will command the most iconic troops from the Revolution era in deep-turn based strategy combats with dynamic environments – more than 30 different terrains, including cities, plains, snowy mountains, etc. with environmental changes like snow or fog which will force you to be constantly on your toes, adapting your strategy to every situation. Your generals, over 30 fascinating characters including historical figures like Desaix, Murat and Lannes among others, will all have different backgrounds and skills that can be trained and improved with experience– but you will have to talk to them to discover their stories, gain their trust and understand their hearts if you want them to reach their true potential. You will also take part in challenges and quests to gain political favor, funds to improve your weaponry and supplies – but be careful, for your actions may tip the balance of power in Paris…
