About the Story

You've just arrived in a new land. You've left your past where it belongs--hundreds of leagues across the sea--and you hope to start fresh. But all is not well in this new country, and you soon find yourself in the thick of it. Will you end the growing threat here?

Given the opportunity to start over, what kind of person will you become?

NIGHTBOUND is a text-based RPG. It includes an inventory system, turn-based combat, and class and leveling systems. A full guide/walkthrough is included.

A big Twine RPG with different classes and randomized combat, November 16, 2017

I enjoyed this game from IFComp 2017. You choose from one of three character classes, and you can take a variety of characters with you, including a sonomancer (something like that) who integrates music with magic.

There is a power creep issue that several judges noticed, where pretty much anyone who makes it to the endgame can one-shot the boss, but besides that, the core concepts worked well for me. I feel like it needs more polish; combat has several blank lines requiring you to scroll, for instance.

I was glad I played this one, because I'm a fan of D&D and this reminded me of trying out someone's home-brew campaign. Your mileage may vary.
