TaskMaker

The world has plunged into depression and devastation…the once mighty Kingdom is no longer. You set out upon your life long pursuit – to restore order and prosperity to the Kingdom. Having no experience, training, or money, you seek out the TaskMaker, one of the few powers left in the world, to help you. Under his guidance, you must explore lands, caves and castles to complete the 10 tasks the TaskMaker assigns. Tasks are unique and gradually increase in difficulty as you unlock secrets, communicate with people, and fight with monsters. Successfully complete all 10 tasks and you will be rewarded with the title of Master of the Land. Masters are given the power to change the game’s world and environment to suite their own preferences. Prove yourself honorable and gain the wisdom necessary for true freedom!
