Tendry survives a shipwreck and washes up on a distant shore, and must learn to wield his new Mimic Sword to find his way inland. Will he survive, or will his adventures end before they even begin?

Thanks go to the testers supporting this hold over its far too lengthy development (which started a week after the release of the RPG!): Blondbeard, Lamkin, Someone Else, Tahnan, TFMurphy, and Tim.

Plan ahead, save early, and save often! You have been warned.

Details for the planning types:

This is a brilliant, short RPG-hold with a lot of replayability-value. There are lots of puzzles within the puzzle, that can help you on your way. Lots of little nifty tricks you can use.

It also have a nice feel to it, the way you use the grappling hook to swing your way around.

Seconded. Definitely.

The concept of the Mimic Sword is awesome and novel; it's a welcome break from what you'll find in the typical RPG hold.

Well, this is weird. Lamkin's and my scores for Traditionalist, and Trickster's scores for Luddite and probably Enthalpy, should be impossible to achieve. So there's either some major and non-obvious issues with my scripting, or the RPG or CaravelNet has some bug in score calculation.

No, I'm not taking votes on which one is more likely.

Oh, right, kieranmiller fixed the scripting for this one. It should be back to working now.
