Thanks everyone! This will be my first novel, so it’s great to have so much positive feedback.
@pauleno2000 – I’m planning to give the player a number of options which might give their Mordred a reason to fight Arthur. For one thing, Mordred’s got a decent claim to being Uther’s “rightful” heir. If Mordred chooses to develop a relationship with Guinevere then that could definitely give him a motivation to rebel.
Mallory’s Morte d’Arthur is definitely one of my sources, but I’ll also be drawing on other versions of the story (and just making stuff up) to give the player the latitude to develop their own character. I’m also considering an option where Mordred and Arthur are fighting on the same side at Camlann. After all, the earliest versions of the story just say that Arthur and Mordred both died fighting at Camlann – not whether they were fighting each other!
I’ll leave it entirely to the player to decide how likeable they want their Mordred to be.
@LightningGarfunkel – I’m currently planning on five chapters, plus the prologue and an epilogue. There will always be a battle at Camlann, although hopefully I’ve written the prologue broadly enough to accommodate a range of player choices to explain how you might have got there!
@Sabrinadiza_Balya – Good spot, thanks! I’ve fixed that, and also added a couple of indexes to the stats page. There will absolutely be Romance Options, although I haven’t given that much thought to them yet. I’ll be hinting at another one possible romance option later in the first chapter, and introducing a few more as the story develops.
