User Summary: In order to rid your valley of a curse of eternal winter, you must journey to the land of the dead and recover seven pieces of a magical artifact called the Stone of Badda.
Guillermo's Thoughts: The setting for this fantasy adventure is not inspired by Tolkien or D&D, but rather seems like an odd mixture of Stone Age and Bronze Age elements. The writing is of great quality as is usual in this series. Some choices which require careful thought make gameplay interesting, but this is yet another Storytrails book which shouldn't take more than one sitting to complete successfully. In spite of this, I enjoyed the story very much and recommend it, especially if you are a fan of series like Endless Quest or Paths of Doom.
