You are Raven, Trickster/Creator God of the Northwestern tribes, particularly the Inuits of Alaska and Canada areas. You are walking on the earth, going here and there, doing this and that. Encounters are not always dangerous, and not always fun, but you make the best of you time on Earth, after all, you created it as a joke :-)
I liked it, it was certainly an original premise told in an original voice, though the difficulty of turning a myth into a story-game is apparent by the circles readers will often turn in, though I suppose they are necessary unless you feel like creating alternative myths to explain natural phenomena? I am sure it would be very enjoyable to see you write a similar treatment of figures like the Norse trickster god Loki (he who made The Mask for Jim Carey)or even the Greek Gods who certainly did various interesting things in their free time.

Entertaining, but seems to lack a real plot. More just little scraps of stories, but fun. It is written in a style very reminiscent of folklore, which I certainly like, but it still seems quite disconnected.

I'm not too familiar with Native American mythology, but this was a fun, engaging story. Well written; some typos but no big deal. Very different from most of the games on this site. The story does a good job of allowing you to play the role of the trickster, a mischievous and fun-loving but sometimes arbitrarily cruel character, especially if he gets bored (sorry, Whale).

Hey :-). Great game! I can't wait to play your next creation! Well done. I can tell it took a lot of work to compose this story, and that you put a lot of thought into it. :-).

Nice story! I liked the part when the raven leaves the fog man cursing on the shore... ((:

Ha. I spent part of my summer vacation hiking in Alaska, where there was a resting stop somewhere on a mountain where they sold videos about Raven, the Trickster God and other things related to the Inuits of Alaska..
It got pretty weird since the video showed a Native American in tribal costume consisting of a large black beak and feathers attached to the sleeves pretty much twerking while the narrator discussed Raven's story. So that was odd.
Anyway, it was a cool read, especially with context. Good information on Raven and a fitting story for it. Good job.
