The Tales of Alethrion proloque "The First Hero" is about Alethrion, whom the land is named after, and a lovely backpacker girl called Amerath. They are the original creators of the map which we see later in The Reward, carried by Vito and Wilhelm. It is the first tale that takes place long before many of the other episodes in the series which we hope to get funded through Kickstarter.

I remember that I watched the first episode "Reward" some long time ago (maybe on Youtube or somewhere else) and then I thought how masterful yet simple was your visual storytelling.
Now I've discovered that there is a whole series in the making and this episode (more like prequel) is way better both visually and story wise (at least in my opinion). It is beautifully executed and I loved it more than "Reward" on so many levels.
The only thing the story does not conclude is what happened to the girl? I thought she'd appear at the end, at least as some kind of a passing notion. But she was sort of forgotten. Anyway, I loved this episode and I am very happy to have found you again on NG!
EDIT: Alright, I checked the next episodes and it seems like you have a different story about the girl's adventure! That's awesome, now my question is answered.

Wow... This is an actual masterpiece.

Thats was deep!

Nice

And so here is a nice visual of a nice film here and this one was a tad dark but that's ok I liked it so nice job there I like the visuals you presented here and just some great stuff in this one you are truly talented when it comes to this stuff

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
No changes to this piece

~X~

Was not expecting this to be so dark, but I loved it. This map seems to be getting a lot of ppl killed tho lol. I'm sure Newgrounds and Yacht Club love the cameos too.
