About this game

Advance in Society and bargain with creatures in the Wood in a Regency fantasy of manners, daring, and magic. Will you join your daemon overlords in destroying your hometown or will you defy them?

"Weyrwood" is a 174,000 word interactive fantasy novel by Isabella Shaw, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

You are a fledgling member of the shabby-genteel, you've returned from your education to disentangle your inheritance from your small town's oblique magical property laws. Attend assemblies, call upon friends and neighbors, withstand scandal and intrigue, and court prospective suitors as if your life depended on it—for it does. Maintaining your status as a member of the Gentry and living among the Willed depends upon keeping your spina, a magical currency. Otherwise, you will serve as a tithe to the daemons and join the Fallen, their Will-less thralls.

Yet you cannot remain only concerned with your own affairs. Someone is tampering with the magical contract that binds Prosper, the Wood, and the daemons to the tenuous arrangement that you now enjoy.

Can you survive long enough to claim your inheritance and return to the City—or to remain in Prosper and enjoy the abundant blessings that wealth, freedom, and influence can grant you?

• Play as female, male, or non-binary; gay, straight, bi, or asexual.
• Uncover the daemon plot and protect your town, or side with the daemons to destroy it.
• Win a high-stakes game of cards.
• Ally with the daemons or with the weyrs.
• Gain wyrdsense to perform sorcery.
• Fight a courtly duel.
• Court an eligible marriage prospect and take a lover.
• Gain influence at balls, assemblies, and social events.
• Avoid—or embrace—scandal.
• Bargain with the magical weyrs of the forest to preserve your Will.
• Advance to become a Pillar of Society.

What would you sacrifice to keep from Falling?

Thoroughly enjoyable! The writing itself is truly the highlight - and the characters! They come across as individuals, with their own quirks, and depending on your character, you may feel differently about them per playthrough. In other stories with original settings, I've found sometimes things just don't "click" but it's very easy to settle into the town of Prosper and its customs. There also seems to be some real variance to choices/alliances. Worth the full price tag!

I applaud any writer who makes the attempt to make a good cyoa, but this one feels like they rushed to finish it and didn't work out all the bugs yet..but nevertheless the story has some merit, but they really need to work out the bugs before asking us to pay for it. If I had to do it all over again, no, I wouldn't have paid for this one, it needs more editing. The story doesn't flow right, and there are many errors. Please fix and update, then I give better rating. Thanks!

The writing is fantastic and the plot is intriguing. Unfortunately, my only complaint is one that affected the entire game for me. Mild Spoilers Ahead: The final choice at the council meeting seems to completely determine the end of the story no matter what choices you've made so far. Even with evidence, council support, and allies, choosing an option that didn't completely match up with my stats gave me (essentially) a game over. It felt unfulfilling and ruined the cohesiveness of the story.
