This is my first attempt at a choicescript game and not scrapping it after the first month. I hope you guys enjoy, and this hopefully will turn into a trilogy with two side arcs.
Synopsis: It was supposed to be a regular winter break, going home to see friends and family. That is until your mom tried to sacrifice you. Now with a primeval sharing your soul and family you didn’t know existed will you be able to survive battles & college?
- Play as a male, female, or non-binary 21 year old student.
- Let your fear become your strength.
- Try to survive while your soul gets hijacked on a regular basis.
- Use your new gift to help others, or be a selfish jerk.
- Wield a variety of weapons
- Learn about various events in time as chronicled by a phoenix.
- Romance anyone from your best friends to an ancient volatile kitsune.
One of your childhood best friends, she is a few months younger than you, and is attending college to eventually obtain a masters in medicine. She’s 5’6 with a slight figure. Has chocolate colored eyes and shoulder-length black hair that fades into a lavender ombre.
Your other childhood best friend and a year older than you. Currently he takes online classes so he can help out at his family’s restaurant. He’s 6’0 with a well-built figure due to excessive track and basketball. Has emerald green eyes that complement his tousled caramel hair.
An 18 year old excitable MMA fighter, she joined the Blades right out of high school due to her accomplishments physically and academically. She’s 5’10 with a willowy frame that hides her toned muscles. Has light blue eyes and honey blonde hair that’s kept chin-length.
A 22 year old who’s family is descended from one of the original founders of the Blades. He is completely committed and trained under Reuben’s tutelage from a young age. He’s 5’7 with a muscular frame.
An ancient and volatile kitsune. Claims she is an abomination and will rarely talk about her past, has a very unusual fighting style. She’s 5’3 with an hourglass frame. Has dark gray eyes and waist length raven colored hair.
The friendly neighborhood wulver, he works as a liaison and informant for the Blades and goes out of his way to help the less fortunate. Is very self conscious about his true form around humans and usually uses glamour charms to appear fully human. He’s 5’9 with a slightly toned figure. While under a glamour he has messily spiked silver hair and while in his true form he has silver fur and sapphire colored eyes.

The new update schedule will be minor updates around the 15th and major updates around the last day of the month
Feedback I’m looking for:
- Does the story flow well or seem broken in some parts
- Character feedback, do their personalities stay the same or do you feel like they go off on a tangent?
- Typos, grammatical errors, punctuation.
- What do you think would be interesting to see happen as you read?
- Does something get mentioned then you never hear about it again?
