The last hope for a dying empire

Additional notes:

This story can be very long assuming you're not dying. Years pass and your surroundings will most likely change. You may very well live a life time in the story.

As with any of my writings, the story comes before the game. However while there isn't a complex inventory and all of that, you can technically "win" by getting one of the epilogues.

There are 13 epilogues total.

There are also several points in the story where there are links that lead to more background information on various people, places, things and events. While not completely necessary to understanding the story, they do give you more insight into it.

Wow. This was a fantastic story it was well written, engaging, and you really feel invested in the story. I know many people will complain about the lack of choices in it for a choose your own adventure story. But for what it was, it was incredible.

Perhaps my favorite part of playing through this storygame was how the early ending had a real sense of being an ending. They weren't just "you died, the end". The writing was very well done, but there are a few grammatical errors here and there (almost unavoidable really, with the length of the work). The characters were both believeable and very much alive! Thank you for allowing us to take a walk through your eternal vision. Overall, a wonderful read and a masterful demonstration of what a storygame can be, remember this!

A very dark read, but it was amazing nonetheless. It was entertaining, the characters were engaging (especially Gruz) and the story was immersing. There were a few minor grammatical/spelling errors, and at times it felt a little linear, but it was nothing that detracted from my enjoyment of the story. Well done. (I got the Eternal Couple epilogue.)

I think it's kinda dumb the way i can die. It's like flipping a coin, no real logic to it.

EndMaster, I played few of your games and I must say good job. I mean I can't believe your not writing this with choice of games and selling these. But thank you very much and although I would like to see more choices having greater effect on the game it is still an awesome read.

Well if you played through the path that lead to the 13th ending then you've found one connection to another story of mine.

I played through this game quite a few times and was able to find all 13 epilogues. All of them were unique and entertaining making it fun to replay a different path every time. I would like to know if this story has any connections to your other works?

Oh my god this was one of the best storygames on the site. It's right up there with ground zero, necromancer, and mommy can i go out and kill tonight. Also I loved the ending where *SPOILERS HERE* there's the parade and the shadows kill roldan and you die and the last phrase is: "the happy thoughts that at least you got to see Mistress hit the ground a split second before you do." That's so fucked up but amazing at the same time. 16/8!

Nice how there are whole different stories based on tiny decisions in the start
