Additional Notes:

There are links leading to various background information and your character's current thoughts throughout the story. In some cases these may provide greater insight since some mysterious things can occur in this story.

There are also several endings varying in degrees of good/bad/neutral outcomes. Technically there is one ultimate "winning" ending, but it isn't labeled as such.

Player Comments

Great story! Probably the best of EndMaster's stories after the top 5 (which are obviously Eternal, Necromancer, Death Song, Ground Zero and Innkeeper, roughly in descending order of rank).

Great plot and mystery with lots of branching options and endings. Many endings feel too rushed and inadequately explained, but it's still a great storygame.

I enjoy this game very much. Your world building skills are phenomenal, and any time I play one of your games, I am thrilled to see the amount of effort you put into creating a setting and characters. This game was no different. While I will admit your whole "play from the point of view of a servant of an evil empire" thing is getting to be a bit overdone, I do love how you always manage to come up with an original world and races to inhabit said world. As such, I give this game a 6/8.

After finishing the story several times, I have some comments. Generally, it's quite well-done, but I think that endings are a bit rushed. Everything happens too fast, there is not enough time to "dig deeper". Also, some of the early choices end the game instantly and I cannot help but think that it's a bit premature. It was the same in Ground Zero - one wrong choice in the beginning and bam, the end. Let the story unfold a bit, whet the appetite. I know that early endings are not a big deal, because you can start over, but still, it's not good when stories end so soon, especially considering the fact that the early choices are often a lottery. Anyway, I think that you are a very good storyteller and I would love to see something more complex from you, with more than two possible options per segment :). Cheers.

I love that game. It's fairly different with all branches you can choose, its decently written and most of all it sucks you in and keeps you in character. I really like how ruling our character we can change his thoughts about Empire and himself.

Hell, I think I finally managed to complete this game after a lot of mishaps!

Well written only a few misspellings. Good story with a lot of mystery.

Definitely one of the better endings you can get.

NVM, i got the ending where *SPOLIERS* I and Alyssa married, is that the good ending?

Very good game, but i wonder if there was an epilogue.

Good story. That is until madness reduced the characters to savages.
