Can a wanna-be hero like you rescue the city of Kendrickstone, held hostage by an evil wizard and his troop of black-clad soldiers? Face down fierce foes with spell, sword, or silver tongue. Outwit cunning rivals, cement your fledgling reputation, and maybe, just maybe, make enough money to pay your rent!
“The Hero of Kendrickstone” is an epic 240,000-word interactive fantasy novel by Paul Wang, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
Step into the shoes of a fledgling adventurer in a world full of magic and mystery! Master physical combat, magic, stealth, or diplomacy. Choose to befriend–or betray–sorcerers and knights, bandits and baronesses.
Will you spend the last of your silver on a bed for the night, or potions for your next adventure? Will you spend your evenings studying ancient secrets, or prize-fighting for extra coin? Will you seek a mentor to help hone your skills, or strike out on your own? Will you prove to be a paragon of compassion, or a callous mercenary? Will you die forgotten and un-mourned, or will you become the Hero of Kendrickstone?

Ratings and Reviews
This isn’t really a review I just need to know when the next part is coming out
Okay so it’s a good game, Choice of LLC always makes good games, but it seems rather short for the price. Don’t get me wrong it’s good, but if you’re looking for a medieval text adventure game, I’d recommend Choice of the Wizard or The Last Monster Master. And okay it’s more of a super villain theme, but I highly recommend Diabolical!
Ok not really like Skyrim obviously but the world, the story is set in, has that feel to it. Unlike every other choice game this one actually HAS a more well thought out, detailed endings. Readers of my reviews know that I read all choice games and that short crappy endings are a peeve of mine.
Play as a Mage, thief, knight, bard or some combination of that.
Join up with others in the story or be a line wolf player.
Some choice add layers on to the story but don't make any difference to the main story line. Sadly the story's main out line is the same no matter what role you choose.
It would have been better to have even more separate stories for greater replay value.
But that would have meant more work.
That being said its a challenging game. Almost too challenging. I played 6 times trying to achieve a certain goal as a Mage. Only to find out that unless I was willing to fight like a knight I was always going to fail.
So that kind of game mechanic doesn't make me happy.
Still absolutely 5 stars.
If you make it to the end their seems to be an intent to continue the adventure in a new story app.
I'm looking forward to it as this now makes my top 5 choice games of all time!
