A slew of terrible monsters reside in the various caves, tunnels, and plateaus that span the vast mountainside near your village. They are led by the Craxil, an unknown creature that seems to have command over the other creatures in the mountainside. The village has grown tired of the frequent attacks and has turned for help. A mage offered up a poison that can be used to kill the Craxil, but nobody in the village (yourself included) is strong enough to go out monster slaying. You are chosen for the job. Not because of your strength (which is nearly nonexistent) but because you are sneaky and they hope you will reach the Craxil without notice. Are they correct? Let's find out!


Game Description:  This is my first time creating a choose your own adventure, but I believe I have managed to bring this rather ambitous project to fruition on first try.  I took an interest in this site after playing "Magus: Betrayal", "Necromancer", "Order of the Midnight Sun", and "Mommy, Can I Go Out And Kill Tonight" as well as many others.  I wanted to make it long in length but highly interactive at the same time so there will be a great many choices you will have to go through.  There are many ways to die but only two official endings (ending #2 being the "real" ending).  It should be noted that there are multiple different ways in which to reach either of the two endings as your path may branch away from the other possible paths (depending on your choices) only to merge with them later.  It should also be noted that the fate of your sister, as described in ending #2, may well be the subject for a future project.

Disclaimer:  For the sake of adding pictures, I pulled numerous pictures off of google images in the hopes of bringing this adventure to life.  However, I take NO credit whatsoever for the pictures contained within.  They are borrowed and that is all.  The story itself, was written by me.  Also, while this isn't extensively foul by any means, there are a few "naughty words" sprinkled in to emphasize certain feelings and situations.  If your mommy and daddy don't want any bad words to defile your virgin ears then do not play this game.


Thank you all for reading this and I hope you enjoy this game!
