    The game is all text. It consists entirely of choice and consequence. Your Stats and the story change based upon your decisions.

    You are a dragon. You do dragon stuff. Go ahead, give it a try.

    Whatever floats your boat. I'm thinking that someone should do a LP about this one, actually.

    Huh. I thought it was a joke at first, but this is actually good. It has a good sense of humour.

    I'm on my secound run trough the game now. It'll be interesting to see how going with an entirely different style will play itself out. I think I'm going to find out whether these guys take donations. I'd like more of this.

    Be careful of the party of adventurers in chapter 3 or 4. They destroyed most of my progress.

    "I may just have found a pretty decent game" is not a very catchy thread title, now is it? Besides, I think it's really good - I want more. In fact, I'd happily pay a reasonable price for a version that takes a few hours to complete.

    You really have to max out your stats. I failed Finesse checks even with 72%. The choices that change disdain/vigilance are tricky too.

    I tried going with brutality/cunning/Vigilance (and the appropriate choices) this time. I was permanently wounded so quickly it wasn't even funny anymore :D

    Edit:
    I had a bad feeling about this one, anyways :twisted:

    It's not a game because there is no skill required.

    Yeah, it's interactive fiction with some RP elements. Who fucking cares? I emailed the devs. Nice people. They say that there's more coming (next time you'll play a human, though). A donation option should be coming, too. Oh, and they're giving away their scripting language, it seems. If it is sufficiently simple to use, I see some very interesting possibilities.

    A reprisal of American Hare would fit this engine.
