This is just an example from one of our stories. Feel free to write in your own style and flesh out what is important to you.


Title:
Dawn of the Beast

Concept:
The story combines the content of ancient empires with classic hunting elements. After the discovery of a mangled corpse you are supposed to track down the murderer and follow the trail of blood with a small squad and your mentor Quintus. Along the way you’ll encounter the beast, barbarians and possibly more dead. In this gripping mix of fantasy, mystery and history, you alone must decide who you can trust!

Scene:
“I… I…Die…” he stutters. The barbarian’s voice cracks and his body starts to shake. Those fierce eyes fixate on you. Then they become pale and cold. His body sinks down, the last sparks of life leaving. “A shame we didn’t find him sooner. Maybe he could’ve given us some information on what attacked him“, the young man at your side comments with a sad glance.

Choices:
Do you want to search the dead barbarian or leave his corpse in peace?

Writer’s Comment:
Searching the barbarian will reveal important clues to the story, while leaving the corpse in peace will raise reputation with the barbarians, which is decisive later on. Reputation will be handled via variables..
