How It Begins
You are a father who has been away from his family for six months. Your wife, Randa, began telling a long story to your son, Danny, over the course of several nights. It's now your turn to continue the bedtime tale:
Prince George was charged by King Sean to rescue a princess. The prince dutifully traveled on his quest, until he encountered a bridge guarded by a troll. The Prince then ...?
- Uses a framing story where the protagonist is a father telling a story to his son; this part is in the usual second person and present tense. However, the framed story, which has a prince for the protagonist, is told in third person and past tense.
- The standard ">" prompt has been replaced with "The Prince then ", prompting player to enter their commands in the past tense, e.g.: "went east", "looked at the troll", etc., although normal commands will work as well.
