When the weather is fine, you've been coming to this grove to drink from the pool for centuries now. Today, you meet a stranger and hear a story that changes all that...

A fairy tale adventure.

[AUTHOR'S NOTE: There's a heavily scripted scene that due to time constraints I didn't have the opportunity to thoroughly test. You'll know it when you see it. In addition to a save game link beforehand, I've provided the option to skip it altogether should you encounter problems. A PM describing those problems would also be greatly appreciated as I'll be revisiting this game once the crushing weight of December has passed.]

Very well written. I even made it through the battle but it was a little buggy. I had to repeat previous pages even after moving on to the next stage of the battle. all in a great tale!

I enjoyed this one but not as much as I thought I would when I started reading it. Your description of the surroundings is the strongest part of the story for me. Sometimes I feel like I'm living inside your story with the way you describe the scenery. My main issue is that if you skip the battle altogether against the wyrm, I thought that you'd be doing a fight scene parallel to the one that was supposed to happen if you choose to fight the wyrm manually. You're so good at describing sceneries and events, One example was when the unicorn was trying to help jerran drink the water from that water pouch thingy. It was so intense because I could really imagine how it was happening in my mind with the way you are narrating it, so I think that you not narrating the battle was a huge waste of chance for some wyrm slaying action. 7/8 for me.

@Imperator Just fyi, Olagar isn't her father. There are two women who come out of the castle, and you get more or less backstory at the end depending on how you got there.

Excellent descriptive writing (for many reasons). Good narration and fairly interesting plot. Considerably fewer grammatical errors than most stories on this site. (By the way 'ye' means you (plural), the correct article to use when talking to a single individual is 'thee')
Got "Jerran and Quinnara, naturally, live happily ever after." ending, although I'm sure there are more.
What I don't understand is that the twist at the end is that Olagan is Quinnara's father, but I thought that at the beginning Quinnara's father and companions breathed in that smoke, and then Olagan rode up and took Quinnara off.
Anyway fantastic story, and I'll definitely be playing again to learn more.

This is such a well written story! I love that while it's mostly linear, there are definitely choices to be made that can influence the final outcome. There are a few grammatical errors, typically just a situation of a word missing, but it's not enough to detract from the story. This is a beautiful fantasy tale with memorable characters, a nice starting plot that becomes even more interesting, a great battle scene (that I personally had no issues with), and some especially well done choices at the end. Very great work!

A very nice story - well written, but that's no surprise coming from Mizal.

I've always enjoyed fairytales, so this was definitely something for me. I didn't encounter any problems with the game. Maybe I was simply lucky, but the battle went off without a hitch, victorious for our side. It was a well-written story that was a pleasure to read.

This was extremely well written and I enjoyed it. This was very well scripted, and I loved how you intricately wove the plot together. Nicely done Mizal. I didn't notice any major issues.
