My Goal for this Story
When I started this story, I had some key things in mind. After playing many of the games on this site, I realized that many simply explained where you were, and what was there. I have tried, instead of simply giving information about the environment, to make the reader 'sense' the environment, without just using images which vaguely match the story. I also wanted to create a game that people wanted to play more than once, possibly until they win. Please let me know if I have suceeded, thanks. ;-)
Two years ago, the King became very ill and died. The throne was taken by his half brother, Taladros, and the new King cast his selfish shadow over the city, exploiting what his predecessor had built. He leeched off the people: taxing, killing and enslaving them.
Rich men befriended the new king, and famillies tore as the poor were separated from the wealthy. The king's insane taxes drove the city into crime, those who couldn't pay were slaughtered.
In your wealth, you had every opportunity to join the leagues of the new king, but you stood against all his policies, and ended up on death row as an enemy of the throne. You spent six cold nights in a dungeon cell, marking the walls in blood the days till you died. It is here you met Eskalier Hoathe.
Your escape baffled the king's greatest scholars, and you quickly became one of the most wanted men in Gyle. In the shadows you trained as a rogue by your teacher, Hoathe. Your skills slowly began to bear fruit, as you claimed handsom rewards from your missions.
One night, you arranged to meet Hoathe in the cellar of an old inn, but completely out of character, he did not show up. You later discovered that on his last mission in the house of a rich baron, he had been caught and executed.
You now walk the streets alone.
