The story is absolutely beautifully crafted. It genuinely stands out across all interactive novels where the weight of every decision in this masterpiece feels heavy. Choices, combat, story, characters, personality options, twists, intrigue, all perfected here. Not to mention it's super fun. I can't stress enough how much I love this story, it's undeiably something beautiful. And consequences last. It's something that'll evho throughout the whole game! I love this so much.

The most involved and fleshed out game of this type I've played - The author is truly a master at worldbuilding and character creation. I really felt like I was *in* the story the entire time. Lots of purple prosey bits but they added to the story immensely. I do agree with others it seems your choices aren't weighed that heavily, but I've only played once. The ending does feel a bit rushed compared to the rest of the rich story but it doesn't detract from the overall masterful plot.

The story is intriguing and leaves you wanting more while still satisfied with what you have. The writing feels like it's from the story's setting, which makes it feel unique. The characters are also complex and interesting. Only main complaints I have is it's staggering length and (I've only played once so I can't be sure on this) but it doesn't seem like your choices have a large impact on the story. Overall definitely one of the best choices I've played so far.
