About the Story
The Kingdom of Gwalinad is in its last days of existence. The evil wizard Vourtram, aided by an army of demoniac creatures, razed most of the old cities, spreading terror everywhere. When the capital Linwynne fell, the loyal forces of the old King fled to the hidden city of Chuma Huppic, an old stronghold defended by a magical maze that prevents enemy forces from entering. However, Princess Grardobeth was captured, and many died in the hands of the evil wizard. The princess is kept as a hostage in the high tower of the Castle of Vourtram. Vourtram demands a marriage with the princess followed by the King's abdication, thus making him the new King over Gwalinad.

This RPG in Quest is just gorgeous. I loved the font and coloring.
You can choose a class, then do a preliminary quest, then a bigger quest, then maybe another one, then the final quest.
It held up better than just about any of the web RPGs in this comp. I couldn't finish it because it was really, really long.
I'd give it more stars, but there were some typos and some minor bugs. If they were fixed up, it would be great.
