It is impossible to have a walkthrough for this game as there are too many interlocking events and there is ABSOLUTELY NOT only one solution to the game. This method will only show you ONE single way to play the game and reading it may destroy your own explorations of the game story. DO NOT try this unless you are already extremely frustrated.
** SPOILER ALERT**
This walkthrough describes the minimal required steps to go through all 40 weeks without dying. All the necessary skills are trained to the required levels by the end of the 7th week.
Note that this requires skipping most of the events, and offers a less than great ending.

This extremely small set of skills, combined with certain choices, ensures Elodie's survival:
- Court Manners >= 10 (to enable bluffing in Week 10)
- Dogs >= 50 (to avoid being poisoned in Week 32)
- Composure >= 70 (to enable being obedient in Week 36)
Additionally, Elegance and Presence need to be trained to reach the necessary level of Composure
Choices Made during the WeekEdit
In this walkthrough, Elodie avoids any and all threats, avoiding both wars and social events wherever possible. She also avoids angering either nobles or commoners by avoiding executions while also pacifying the nobles. Finally, she allows her father to die in her stead.
Initially, these are used to specifically aim for the moods that would allow gaining the necessary skills in the least amount of time. After the 7th week, the choice no longer matters.
