This story is designed to be played by roleplayers. The story is designed to allow for people to run dialog scenes around the main plot of the story. Also, all the chapters are intermixed to run together to make one mosaic. Although each chapter in themselves can be played seperately, you will never understand the story until you play all the parts together.
The story is deliberately designed so that each piece is at different lengths and difficulties. This is to prevent people from habituating to the stories.
Also, the story is intercut into 28 chapters. You cannot play 1 to 5 stories and figure it all out. This story is designed for people that have read a book that has more than 25 chapters.
The story does not use exposition and leaves it to the player to figure out the complexity of the story. Some of the episodes are split and designed for specific characters (female or male). SO a male character can play one story arc and it is tailored for him, where as a female character can play her story arc and it is tailored for her.
Note: If you do not have the ability to seperate out a player from a character, then this story is not for you.
This story also introduces dice rolling into the game. So some dialogues will lead you one way or another. This allows for teams of 2 or more people to play the story and work together to overcome task in the chapters.
The combat is designed so that people have to sit down and plan out what they want to do. Some combat is easy other combat is hard. In all the combat is designed to be entertaining with the story. However, the story is primary while the combat is a dramatic part of the story.
Recommended ages is 25 age or older.
