[BerkaZerka's Summer Slam Contest 2017]

The Industrial Revolution has found itself in an alternate timeline on Earth in which technology and factories are on the loose. Minadium, a man with a lust for gems, with a blacksmith for a friend, has the brilliant idea of creating swords made of gemstones! But Minadium soon finds out that this hobby isn't going to be just for fun anymore...

Update Version 2:
Went back through the story and added more pages and epilogues. Now there is a total count of (#) epilogues and the story is fully complete. Hope you enjoy the new and improved "Gemstone Swords".

NOTE: Based on my short story I had to write for school: Gemstone Memory.

Player Comments

This story would have benefited from some more research by the author on the time period that it takes place in. Firstly, Darwin had not yet proposed the theory of evolution yet in 1851. Secondly, blacksmiths were still quite common back then, and there would have been no need to explain what a blacksmith is. I also feel that the protagonist was way too pacifistic to even be realistic, since by allowing the natives to escape, he's letting them come back at a later time to kill more townsmen. Finally, the fact that the swords were made of gems never amounted to anything, and the protagonist just so happened to be a master swordsman.

Well, this game sure shows promise to become something epic. I just hope it would evolve into a series or grand story, and more chance to use the ruby sword. Why not make swords with different gems like sapphire and jade? And even add a little alchemy power to the sword. ;)
