How It Begins

(In the original English version, the game begins with a note from the author, apologizing that most of the text is still in German, and recommends that if you understand German, to play that version instead.)

You might be anyone, carrying nothing. You were marching through the forest to the town of Sigor when the ground collapsed beneath your feet. You wake up in a small cave, lit by the hole you fell through three meters above you. What now?
