All your life you've had an uncanny ability. You always seem to win at games of chance; you've always known when to bet and when to fold. You've often convinced yourself it was merely luck or keen intuition, but strange events reveal there is something more going on. Others have found out about you and your talent, and some of them are not happy about it. They are after you, and you aren't sure what they're going to do if they find you...

 

This story is an entry for BZ's Summer Slam contest. It kind of rides the middle ground between the guidelines of super hero and spy. If you make it to the end, things get really weird, and if you pass through training, you'll know you got to the "true" end. How powerful you become will depend on what you do. For the first few chapters there are cheats and hints.

 

There are several achievements to obtain as you play. When the game ends your achievements will be listed. You cannot get all of them (without exploiting the game, that is) since there are a couple of mutually exclusive pairs, but choices you make will determine which ones you get.

 

Warning: In playing this story game you may encounter disturbing material, including deaths, accidents resulting in serious injury, terrified or injured animals, and graphic violence.
