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 :)

I cried...for the first time in 7 years, I cried.
You sir have my eternal respect.

it made me cry but for a reason I had related to this story in a lot of different ways. I tell stories like he does but only in my way, without a book and without a paper I tell them through my heart. I want to show the world that everyone can play a part. so thank you for making me smile and cry for a little while for I just like he did play a part in all that is hid. I watched this time and time again just because it gave me such a massive grin. so thank you again for all that you brought with giving me such great thought.

Kept me hooked until the end.

Very nicely made, looks absolutely gorgeous, it's just a bit boring and doesn't really seem Newgroundsy if you get what I mean, it doesn't particularly go anywhere and lacks some of the things I come to Newgrounds to watch.

Fantastic.... Gorgeous... Amazing... 10/10...
Easily, one of the best animations I've ever watched by far. I held on to this and decided to watch it sometime later when I first saw it, and now I finally gave it a go :^)

Every single aspect was done so great... the voice acting and script was phenomenal, the artstyle had great colors and awesome textures, the violin music and sounds too... can't find anything negative to point out, it's just... perfect! :D
So glad I finally came around this and watched it. Impressive work right here.
