Hey everyone, this is my first attempt at actually writing out a choice script game. I’ve been fiddling around with sitting down and doing this for quite some time now (I’ve been lurking since it was just Choice of the Dragon and Choice of Broadsides), and I’ve finally decided to just take a leap and do it. Currently I’m a college student, so updates will probably be spread pretty far apart, depending on my workload. Right now, the title is Arcanologist, but that is up to changing in the future. I’m not yet entirely sure what route I want to take this story down, so the plot may change slightly from time to time, but here is the concept:
After your tribe is destroyed by a group of men who lived beyond the Wall, you find yourself enslaved to the leader of that group. This man is an aging arcanologist, one who studies ancient magics and ruins. Due to your nearly perfect memory, you are forced to work as his aide. After nearly six years, an opportunity arises, and you find yourself freed from servitude. The cost? You must study and become a magus in service to the Kingdom. If you do so and prove yourself to the king, you may just earn true freedom. However, great changes are coming in the future, and as prophesized in your youth, you will be in the middle of it all.
It’s not too much so far, but any advice or criticism would be welcome. Also, there is a possible trigger warning due to violence, considering your position as a slave.
Update- I’ve added on a good portion of the ruin exploration. The final scene isn’t finished yet, but you should get to the endgame screen. If you don’t then you’ve probably run into a bug.
