Description

This multiple-choice game casts the player as an undead denizen of the Mississippi river delta in the period between the War of 1812 and the American Civil War some fifty years later. Choosing from any of a wide variety of backgrounds, all the characters will have their distinctive abilities (measuring over 21 statistics overall, five of which are somewhat binary continuums) put to task thriving as a wolf among sheep and surviving amongst the curious parallel political structures of the vampires also. Certain elements of the story veer into Choice of Romance territory, these vampires caught up in soap operatic machinations to rival Anne Rice's best. As in some other games by its makers, surviving to the end of the game results in the sharing of a code allowing players to resume the very particular affairs of this specific character in future installments of the game.
