This is the first part of "Tides of War", a multi chaptered story.
In Betrayal, you play the role of the young Magus Uriel, a skilled elementalist accompanying an emissary's treck to a far off city.
On the road, you will face enemies that only skill, luck and a deep understanding of your magic will allow you to survive Uriel's very first adventure...
While sometimes slightly cynic, the game is supposed to be more serious than funny, with an appeal to those roleplayers among you. :)
The game plays in the entirely fictional world of Thyr, were magic rules the societies, and brave men with swords valiantly defend their settlements against goblins, trolls and other hideous monsters.
I played with the thought of converting it to an Advanced Game, so that the game remembers your Element, for example, but then I am too much of a FightingFantasy-style fan, and if you really want to cheat by browsing back or pretending to be something different than you are, as long as you enjoy yourself, you're welcome...
I liked this story a lot - stayed true to the same kind of atmosphere that the old Choose Your Own Adventure books had, whilst offering more choices than most of those books did.
The illustrations were excellent, and although they were of higher quality than the ones in the books I read when I was younger, they (like the text) managed to invoke the same kind of atmosphere I enjoyed back then.
Excellent stuff. :)

Wow, brilliant story! I enjoy reading material written by someone with such a great command over english as you do. So many choices is a huge plus, and elemental class system was unique and interesting. The only downside was it was a bit short! I want to read more!

An excellent story. I have read through many of the stories here and have found none better written or more fully thought out. I am an avid reader of fantasy and I find Magus: Betrayal to be poignant, exciting, and well on par with any novels out there today. Great work. I am impressed!

I love the Game! Can't wait to see the game! Ha-ha.

I enjoyed it but it's too short. I realize that having multiple choices took you more time to write it, but seriously, how long did it take? 4 hours? I'd rather see this much, much longer. Like, if the current version is a chapter, the whole game would be no less than 10 or 15. This is the only reason I rated it 5.
It certainly had a lot of potential, though.

Pretty Good. A little weirdly worded, but its neat.

too short, needed to be longer and more in depth, but a good first part nonetheless!
