About the StoryA week ago a horrible thing emerged and killed the wizard of the tower. You were there; you saw it happen. You are the only one who knows what's coming, and on your own you have no means to stop it. That's not going to stop you from trying.

A compelling fantasy tale with a few minor issues, November 16, 2017
You play as a magical crow who is fleeing a destructive sentient firestorm. You have to hop from town to town, trying to warn everyone while fighting a bad reputation.
I enjoyed the characters and setting; it was generic fantasy, but not swords and sorcery generic fantasy, more of Diana Wynn Jones or fairy tales.
There were some noticeable typos, though, which detracted from the experience.
