About the Story

Du bist klein und unscheinbar, ein Nichts in den Augen der Mächtigen. Sie hassen dich, sie verachten dich und sie zwingen dir ihren Willen auf. Und doch sind sie auf dich angewiesen, weil nur du den Lauf der Dinge ändern kannst. Gezwungen, deine Aufgabe zu Ende zu bringen, bewegst du dich auf einem schmalen Grat zwischen Verrat und Loyalität. Sei vorsichtig, Homunculus! (blorb)

You're small and unnoticable, a Noboy in the eyes of the Mighty.They hate you, despise you and force you to do their bidding. And yet they need you, because only you can change the path of destiny. Forced to fulfill your task, you walk the fine line between loyalty and betrayal.
Be careful, Homunculus!

(Translation by Marius Mueller, all errors my fault)
