IMPORTANT: This is a rather different version of Chapter 1!
The original was released in 2007, but this version was uploaded in 2010. It's basically a 'remake' in many ways, though the plot and events are generally the same.

Unfortunately, your saves from the old version won't work due to the drastic differences behind the scenes, but there are enough differences, I hope, to make replaying worthwhile. Any saves you make in this version can carry over to later chapters properly.

EDIT (21st of August 2010): Sorry, there'd been bugs with this version for a long time! It's because I fixed the bugs on Kongregate and updated the version there, but didn't do so here... Now I have though, so hopefully all problems will be fixed.

Oh, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you have an appropriate Flash Player version! There's a screen at the start that warns you if your version is outdated. If this screen appears *at all*, then you may (probably will) experience some bizarre saving problems. Updating your Flash Player prevents them.

Good but...

The game was good.... but it had some faults...
- All the random monsters were the same one
- The Random monsters did 0 damage... but the dragon did 500+
- Pretty Short
- The dungeon was straight and pretty sinple
- No items
- No point in fighting the random monsters, you were never gonna lvl up because of the low exp they gave.

And I also didnt like that you started out at lvl 50 with a bunch of stuff already... It would have been cooler to start at lvl 1 and choose he weapons/skills that you wanted to have.

Pseudolonewolf responds:

You didn't get very far at all, did you?
Agh, I do wish people wouldn't just judge it on that first bit...
But I suppose that bit weeds out the casual players from those who are genuinely interested...
Still. Maybe I should shorten it...

THis game rocks!

This game is awesome so far! I killed the dragon on my first try cause I kept healing but Mardek died. Then I used Dougan's snakebite and it made the dragon take MASSIVE DAMAGE!! He died in a couple of turns.

Pseudolonewolf responds:

Good to see that someone actually worked out the best strategy for beating it... Well, apart from the dying. That's not a good strategy at all, really.

Very very impressive

u did dis all by urself rite? tts v v impressive. i hadnt played an rpg on newgrounds for a long time ald and wen i played urs, hw i regret not playin the others cos there mite be other hidden treasures out dere.
nice graphics and humourous text. this game is quite cool cept for the fact u start off with lvl 50 and makes killin ez so its nt tt exciting lol.
the music is good, not irritatin at all.

Pseudolonewolf responds:

Uh, yes, I did do "dis" all by myself, thanks for noticing!
And I'm glad that you didn't find the music irritating also; I was sort of dreading that a great many people would! o_O
And hm... You start off at level 50, yes, but that's by no means permanent!
I wonder if you got far enough to discover that.

Most Impressive

I havent written a review in a while, but then I havent seen a good sprite game in a while so here we are. As an RPG I liked the reaction element, was something different for me, although I think this reminded me most of the old RPGs like Shining Force. Very well done.

Graphics: It may not seem like much at first but I can see there was alot of effort put into this game, especially with the battle animations. Very well done
Style: Exactly what it set out to be
Sound:Typical music, although I did think the selection fit, even if it was memorable.
Violence: Its an RPG. No blood, but then I didnt expect it from a sprite game. Violent as the next sprite RPG game
Interactivity: Well done, easy to use interface, combat system, and quest managment
Humor: Hehe I was pleasently surpised, the story was very clever and kept me interested with its wit.

Overall: I found this game very interesting, good story, memorable charecters (especially those at the end of this chapter) and good action. I look forward to future chapters!

Pseudolonewolf responds:

The use of the words "clever" and "wit" in that review delight me, ohyes!
As did the fact that you understand and appreciate the effort I put in! With the graphics, at least.

This was an OK game, I guess. Even though I don't like RPG it was OK.
