A downloadable game

[NOTE: This was originally a part of the IGDA's "Write a Game" Challenge, and I will keep it free as my first formal foray into game design.]

Told in the form of a narrated story, The Vessels of Vantos' Will follows the narrated story of Brother Cruoix, a simple monk who has found out by happenstance that there is a murder plot on the order he belongs to. He must find a way to get to Head Brother Seinte, but his own brothers and sisters block his way. What can a man do to go farther down into the Order?

That is up to the player, and Brother Cruoix, to find out.

[Due to formatting issues in newer versions of Twine, this game sadly cannot be updated with new text and revisions]
