Can a wanna-be hero like you rescue the city of Kendrickstone, held hostage by an evil wizard and his troop of black-clad soldiers? Face down fierce foes with spell, sword, or silver tongue. Outwit cunning rivals, cement your fledgling reputation, and maybe, just maybe, make enough money to pay your rent!

“The Hero of Kendrickstone” is an epic 240,000-word interactive fantasy novel by Paul Wang, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Step into the shoes of a fledgling adventurer in a world full of magic and mystery! Master physical combat, magic, stealth, or diplomacy. Choose to befriend–or betray–sorcerers and knights, bandits and baronesses.

Will you spend the last of your silver on a bed for the night, or potions for your next adventure? Will you spend your evenings studying ancient secrets, or prize-fighting for extra coin? Will you seek a mentor to help hone your skills, or strike out on your own? Will you prove to be a paragon of compassion, or a callous mercenary? Will you die forgotten and un-mourned, or will you become the Hero of Kendrickstone?

The Hero of Kendrickstone reviews and comments

English Is Essential to play! This Game requires a good Command of English! First of all, games of this Kind, including this one, are very special. ~ ~ ~ Sound, Sound and Music ~ ~ ~ Are not present. Just as it says in the Description, it is exclusively a text-based role-playing Game and will not appeal to the general Public. ~ ~ ~ Graphic ~ ~ ~ The Hero of Kendrickstone consists entirely of Text, so who expects exciting Effects or any graphic Surprises will be disappointed. Here, too, as in the previous days, Games of these Formats are special and is not for everyone. ~ ~ Gameplay ~ ~ ~ The Hero of Kendrickstone, a text-based Game that might cause Nostalgia in one or the other. This Game here goes quite appropriately and consciously the Way back, "Back to the roots" as the Frenchman would say, or something like that .. Here, graphic Representations of any Kind as well as Music, Sounds or Sound Effects were dispensed with, which does not Detract from the Game. It must also be said that not everyone with purely text-based Games will have fun. A Story is lovingly told that, in Terms of Language, comes beautifully into what Is happening and triggers a coherent, beautiful medieval Feeling. If you like Role-playing Games, you don't mind reading a little more and Can do without Explosions or The like, You will find your Fun here. Those with enough Imagination will be able to conjure up An incredibly atmospheric Picture with the words chosen. In Role-playing Mania, you pick a Kind of Class at the Beginning. It is more a Path chosen than a unique Class. Because if you hope again for Things like Skilltrees, you will run into it Emptiness. I would like to say once again that good English Skills are] Prerequisites. Whether simple School English is enough, I doubt. Those who take their Time and actively follow history will lose themselves in this World. Playing over a longer Period of time is once again only those who are not afraid to give up Graphics and Sound. The Game absolutely doesn't need to hide. The Nostalgia Factor, however, is subjective. While The Hero of Kendrickstone does have its Raison d 'Être, it doesn't play out the same way it used to. It's easier to keep, because you don't have to or can't type any Actions yourself. Predetermined building Blocks of Action Help you get through faster and set a certain Direction. ~ ~ ~ Rating ~ ~ ~ + Fast Nostalgia of Past + Missing Graphics and Music do absolutely no hurt + Story here is beautiful and Is lovingly told + surprises here and there, although some things are to be expected +-RPG a lá World of Warcraft You won't find here + An Extraplus da I daring the Game to go back to the Beginnings and, purely lyrically, also neatly what makes you
