PLOT : A mysterious figure has resurrected three ancient kings of realms from their long, cold slumbers within their barrows. The barrow wights have taken up residence in the ruins of their former keeps and unleashed legions of undead to wreck havoc upon the lands. The denizens of the land have also become emboldened by the growing shadow of evil and despair. In desperation, the Lord Deciper has issued forth a calling for heroes to come to the aid of the people, and to find a way to thrust back the growing darkness and return the barrow wights to their slumber.

Started game... almost quit... stuck with it.... got hooked... love it! This game is absolutely awesome. It's big. Some of the characters are hilarious. Role playing aspect is just what I have been longing for. Not corralled along through the story. Spoiler Alert: Discovered a way to visit the ruins of a 'familiar land'. My mind has slowly been blown apart. Thank you!!! PS This should not be a free game.

Thank you, ngzax! Haha. Thought that one would remain a secret forever. Nice way of putting it without being too much of a spoiler. Thanks for playing and posting! :)

Very solid RPG. The game is rich in content (you'll probably need more than 40 hours to reach the end) and delivers some particularly interesting exploration.

Character creation and customization are free, the world is open and big, the towns and dungeons all provide their dose of unique characters, key items, tool and/or equipement. Inside combat like outside combat you'll be able to cast spells, sing songs and use tools and consumables. The equipement is varied.

Every character you meet will be involved in your quest one way or another, providing you a new item, spell, song, important keyword or hint which will help you in one of the numerous subquests slowly carrying you to the final goal.

The dialog system is well used, you'll need to ask people the good questions in order to progress through the story. Moreover you'll meet a lot of charming characters and it's pleasant to talk with them.

The game is definitely not easy, it doesn't hold your hand, which is part of its charm. However the mandatory puzzles are logical and you'll certainly reach the end if you take the time to visit the world and pay attention to what people say.

Besides the game is polished, there are a lot of secrets and you'll probably not discover all of them. There are also some nice little things like seasons which change over time, which is not only cosmetic since during winter shallow water turns to ice and is easier to distinguish.

Overall it's a very enjoyable game.

Thank you CryptRat! Glad you enjoyed it. This is what we worked so hard for. Thanks for posting.
