Hm, this storygame is interesting. I also think I couldn't have beat it without spamming alt + left. :)

I eventualy had some followers one of which survived to the very end (a healer for my rouge). The others all died (before the final boss actually). I also had baisically unlimited funds by the end.

The creatures were nice and reminded me of classac fantasy. It was pretty grindy, but I kept on going anyway. I figured out how to use the mechanics pretty well by the end, though I never was able to use my Rouge's Assasinate successfully making it useless to me.

My favorite aspect of this storygame was the humor. It added a nice touch and a smile to the grinding. I also never found an error in the scripting (of which I suspect there to be a sinful amount) besides the Asssinate ability (which I may have not used corectly).

Lastly, I personally saw a slant in the gear towards the Knight/fighter class. I constantly picked up weapons and armor that I hoped my companions or I could use, but the stupid fighter could only use it. :(

Anyway, I loved the storygame. It was a great few hours (that I should've spent writing). :)

Obviously, there's not much story since it's a dungeon crawler. But it's probably the best text-based rpg I've ever played! The level of detail that went into all the different weapons, armors, shields and items, plus the different classes and their ranks, is truly astounding! If you're looking for a really fun dungeon crawler that takes strategy and lasts quite a while, this game is for you. The icing on the cake: Even though there's not a lot of story, it can still be very lighthearted and humorous at times.

Note to author: I did find one broken weapon. It was a flail, found in a chest near the end of the game. It said it was a wizard weapon at the top of the description, but at the bottom the class limits were fighter/priest, and it couldn't be equipped by anyone in my party, despite having one of each class. Besides that, truly well done!

I can barely begin to imagine the amount of work that would have had to go into just making the framework for all this. I wonder how many variables were used in total... not to mention the total scripts!

Further I should mention good writing isn't sacrificed for the sake of the game elements. It has both!


If you haven't tried this out yet, I highly encourage you to give it a shot. I will say that there is more clicking involved compared to the more story focused storygames, but that doesn't detract from the experience, and honestly, with this heavy use of the advance editor, it is to be expected.

Oh, also, did I mention there are pictures?

TBH not the greatest. It's certainly unique, as it's not a Story but instead an "RPG" in text form. But the issue is that it seems to glitch a lot, as whenever I was in combat with a companion we would BOTH lose life even if there was only one enemy, only one enemy of multiple hit, or multiple enemies only targeted my character.
And then there's the absolute repetitiveness of it. It wouldn't be too bad if all the buttons were within the page without requiring any scrolling, but the images are so large that they do require scrolling.
Not to mention that enemies will A L W A Y S attack my character despite my being a low-HP mage and having someone in my party with over twice my HP, causing Game Overs far more often than they should. And then my comrade, despite having a weapon that statistically does more damage than my attack (according to how it's advertised to me), and he does less than half the damage than I do consistently.

Quite frankly, the only reason I'm rating it this highly is because of its uniqueness, despite the (in my opinion) poor execution.

This is probably my favorite story on this website. I've played through it twice and I plan on going through it again. I wish there were more stories as fun as this one.

Well just one suggestion... is it possible to replay the game over again with the super items and status obtained after finishing the game for one time? Because I got all those marvelous weapons after defeating the final boss but no chance to use them! =D

This was amazing. Hey, can I borrow some of that spare time? You seem to have a lot, judging by the length you go to for these games.

Yay! 5th time around! ;) No chance to use the legendary great bow of regeneration since i got it after beating the ancient worm. :(
