Author's Comment: "This is the first chapter of a novel written with interactive elements, where you (the first person narrator) choose your reactions to the events of the story."

The game has a sort of pagan witch style of magic, with archetypes like the crone, the elder, the maiden, and the mother, a shadow world, etc.
The game focuses a lot on mating and dating, but not in any explicit form; the society just has a more free form culture, a lot like the fictional society in Friends where there are few consequences.
Overall, well eone, especially in setting-building.
