ante.jpgIn this story you can't win or lose (but you may, on rare occasion, be looped back to the beginning), and you will always finish up at the same place in the end. This was written so you can enjoy the story and literally be a part of it.

The original character you will be playing as is Nox, but you are simply referred to as "You" (This way you do not have to play as a character. Fair warning: If you are not a guy, you're going to have to pretend that you are.).

Setting: Takes place in a fantasy world called Antedilluvia. There are two sides of the world, the 'Rarus' side, and the 'Aptus' side, which are separated by an ocean and connected by one landbridge. This story takes place in the 'Aptus' side.

Canentium - "Incola Lignum" The inhabitants of the wood. They are one of the 21 clans of Aptus, Antedilluvia. Canentium are pale, tall, posess dark red eyes, and have blood red colored hair.  Canentium are thin, nimble tree-climbers and dragon-riders. They play sweet melodies from Wooden flutes.

Viatores- The name of Rex's group, meaning 'travellers'. The group consists of former robbers, mercenaries, and underdogs, all now dedicated to becoming adventurers and explorers.

All artworks are drawn by me.

 I made this story almost two years ago so please pardon the discrepancies. It was originally meant to be part  of a series, but since I work painstakingly slowly I firmly believe that might never happen, and that is also the reason why it seems to lack much of a goal. I meant to publish it then as well, but I wanted to make artwork to accompany it and unfortunately that delayed the process, so I decided to just post it now instead of having it stored away for all of eternity for nobody else to see...

For someone who has had a seemingly depressing life of poverty before his decision to leave Rauras (sorry for any misspellings of names), it doesn't seem reasonable for the protagonist to be anywhere near Mundus' skill level in swordsmanship, and even if the protagonist had a background that allowed it, it should have been mentioned.

There were a few grammar issues I caught, but it didn't interfere with the story. Sadly, the story is very linear and short, which was disappointing, but the experiences with each person was sweet, almost bittersweet, with the tone you set earlier in the story.

The pictures are beautiful and definitely helped create an atmosphere for the storygame. Expand the plot more, add paths, keep doing what you've been doing (I understand the process is slow for you.) and you'll have a great storygame!

As much as I wish it weren't, this story is obviously linear. This storygame has so much potential for becoming an excellent read, if only the author would finish it and give it branches. There's no point in utilizing the medium of the CYOA if you're only going to write linear fiction within it. This storygame (and it's author) have lots of potential but it's being wasted by not writing interactive fiction.

This was a great start to a story. You mentioned that it was going to be part of a series so I do hope you write the rest.

The main point I would raise apart from the length is that it is more story than 'Choose your Own' however you do warn people about this.

this was pretty good, but it needs more branching. If it had more branching, I can see this easily becoming a very good CYOA, but for now it is just a linear story.

This game had a lot of choices. Wouldn't exactly call it branching since they all lead to the same thing, but it was intresting to say the least.

As a result of the amount of pages, they are all pretty short. Not too much of a problem though, and i enjoyed this story as well as the writing in it.

Should have made it longer, I was just getting into the flow of the story when it abruptly ended.
