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.)

One of the best, if not the best story on this site. I spent so many hours getting all the endings, including the bad ones. Feel it was a good use of my time.

this is the best story here. Written of course by the best author. The greatest lesson that I have learned is. My life... All of our llives are nothing!

Long live the emperor!
Long live the empire!

Absolutely amazing story, immense world, and realistic characters. I've played it through for all thirteen epilogues and the differing paths lead to astonishingly different worlds. My favorite was the thirteenth, mainly because I think that the death god encountered is possibly the protagonist from Necromancer?
All together, I firmly believe this is the finest story on the entire website and congratulate Endmaster for his work.

Freaking amazing, I'm in the process of going back to get all the epilogues, and after at least a week, I only have 5. My only regret is that no matter how hard I tried, I could never end up with Semra. Oh well, there are still 8 more endings to go, maybe my secret desire will be met.

The main character is deliciously brutal. The story was dark, violent, wretched, and glorious. As long as you have a strong stomach, this story is an amazing thrill to play through. 8/8.
