Spoiler: Author's Note (Updated 05.10.17)
Experimental improv adventure thing. I have no idea if this is even workable, haha.

Here's the gimmick: There are 16 words per update. Images are 16x16 pixels, max. Colours are limited to a 16-bit palette. Every 16th update, something unusual will happen.

Try to keep action suggestions succinct. No limits when it comes to other details, backstory, etc. Let's see if we last 16 pages!

UPDATE MAY 10th, 2017:
  • Adventure will last for 256 updates, +1 epilogue
  • The 16th update of each 'verse' contains 16x16 words
  • This post will contain compilations of each verse as they are completed.

Mirrors/Compiled Verses

Verse 1/16: The Exile
Verse 2/16: The Captain
Verse 3/16: The Swordbearer

* * * * *

1/16.
in which you are exiled.

The hamlet is saved, and you are in exile. The midwinter winds slice at your cheeks.

Who are you?

Oof. The format of this adventure forces me to select one command at a time... so painful, haha. I'll try to give everyone a shot.

2/16.
in which you are a visionary doctor.

What village exiles their only healer?
You saved more lives than you sacrificed, in the end.

Where will you go?

Does really cute mice people, vibrant characters/backgrounds and the most adorable art style you've ever seen interest you? Read Great Haven.

in which you are going to the battlefield.

No matter.
Esgil's soldiers appreciate your talents--or at least they know better than to question them.

How long have you been travelling?

in which you have been travelling for 16 seasons.

After four years of it, on and off, you're accustomed to eviction.
Sometimes it's lonely business.

Have you always been alone?

in which you've been alone since Eloa.

Your only ever companion lives countless miles and three exiles away. You hope Eloa's forgiven you.

Why did you part?

in which you left Eloa under unthinkably tragic circumstances.

You shake your head, grounding yourself.
You'd rather not recall your tragic separation.
"Just keep walking."

How tired are you?

> Second most out of every event in your life. Still, it feels like your bones themselves have given up. Your muscles may as well have retired years ago.

in which you are exhausted beyond description.

Despite your resolve, your body protests, and your muscles burn with every step.
The shadows hum.

Was it worth it?
