Keepers of Fairfort
Some of you might remember me from my post on the interest check thread some time back. After much worrying and trying to overcome the anxiety of posting this publicly…here is what I have thus far! It’s my first ChoiceScript project, and the first piece of fiction of my own creation and I’m both excited and anxious to share it here.
Set in the town of Fairfort where supernaturals once walked side-by-side with humans, you play as an officer trying to solve the mystery of a woman’s disappearance. Things become more complex however when she shows up unannounced at your door with a child in tow, and the vague warning that danger lurks near…
Currently, the demo is completed up to the first chapter. There’s about 13k words including code, with roughly 5.9k words per playthrough. Feedback on the plot, bugs, or errors of any kind will be greatly appreciated!
You are a police officer working in a small town, and despite not having been in the force for long, you thought you have almost seen it all.
You were wrong.
One night, the town is rocked with a strange disappearance. There are no clues; no suspects; nothing. It is as if the young woman had simply vanished into thin air.
Days later, the missing woman turns up on your doorstep. She shoves a small child into your arms, whispering just two words before she disintegrates into dust:
It is not long before allies and enemies alike come knocking at your door, and soon, you and the small child are taken in by a group that claims to be there to help.
As you try to navigate life with the Keepers who possess gifts you once thought extinct, you have to discover: Who was that strange woman? Who is after this child, and why? Who are these enigmatic Keepers? Who are the mysterious Seekers that lurk in the dark? And above all… how is this all connected to Fairfort’s past?
