Notes

You can save only at Shrines.
If you die, your link will be only a number, the higher the number the better you've done.
If you find yourself with very few options, try going back to your last shrine and spending your experience differently. Choices in battle are affected by your abilities.

A negative score, is a result of screwing all of the known universe. A positive score, is a result in success.

Hm, wow.. It was f*ckin' awesome! It's one of the first storygames in a long time that actually held my attention longer then a few pages. I don't wanna give it away for anyone who's not played it yet, but I liked the story and worlds in general. I especially liked how it all turned out... Kinda reminded me of Buddhism for some reason. Though, honestly, I thought that the master was some sorta pedophile. :D 8/8

Great story, very creative with excellent descriptions and clean writing. You created your own mythology within; possibly inspired by a certain film, it stands wonderfully on its own. I'd love to know how much the stats were changing the outcomes of certain things - the battles were fun and not annoying in the least and I would have liked to see a few more. Looking forward to, and hoping for, a sequel. This is one of, and perhaps your best, work on the site. Writing has improved dramatically - great work triple J!

Entertaining! Though not your best work. It was pretty linear, except for the battle sequences which were dynamic. I think keeping the plot a mystery was very effective, however the tone or voice used felt more like it was a movie and less like a story. I don't know yet if that is a good or bad thing, since I watched the movie Jumper just two days ago :P
Anyways, good job!

Well.. I like it but the writing is a bit childish

Excessive, ugly prose eats away at the already predictable plot. What could have been an interesting story ends up feeling "meh".

Teen 3J definitely needed to analyze more professional writers.

Great story! I really wish it was longer, but for what it's worth, it's awesome. It really kept my attention the whole time. You should definitely expand the story a bit!
