An old traveling storyteller enters a city with nothing to his name but the stories he has spent his life gathering, which he wishes to pass on before he dies.

This project took a year and over 1,000 man-hours to put together, huge thanks to Zeedox (Greg) for sticking it through with me! I really hope you all enjoy this :)

Jesus man, this is moving. My eyes welled up multiple times during it and when they each started telling this story I was sobbing. It's such a sad and beautiful story

I knew I had to rate it 5/5 regardless of how much I liked the story right off the bat, the animation and voice acting alone are enough to deserve that. I just wish I could rate each piece of your content separately because I would rate everything individually 5/5, a true 100%, no rounding here.

On par with the greats of flash animation, reminds me a bit of Bitey of Brackenwood in it's simple and extremely elegant profundity, yours even more touching due to its closeness and direct use of language

Whew. I was not prepared


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Wow! I must admit, this was really a nice work! The voice acting was very good, the whole animation was a well-written poem with cool rhymes and narrated the right way. The characters, the landscapes were all beautifully drawn!
You did a good job!
