The Word Fell Silent

The Word Fell Silent

Kieran Coghlan's biblical gamebook is now ready.

Judea groans under the rule of the Roman Empire, its king, Herod Agrippa II, nothing more than a puppet for the Roman governor. Some demand action against the Romans, others believe it a mistake to antagonise their masters. And there is turmoil between the different Jewish sects and with the new religion that has grown recently, spreading throughout the Roman World and threatening the Jewish faith: Christianity.

Like the other three gamebooks added recently, it has multiple paths to success. In this case there are three different sects you can belong to, and three different companions you can encounter, so if you feel like a challenge, you could try to complete it for all nine possible combinations.

The Word Fell Silent is very interesting! Too bad I'm not so great with theology or history.

Hmmmm...cleverly constructed story, great vocabulary etc. However a great shame you chose to present esoteric Gnostic nonsense rather than the True Gospel (Good News) of Christianity. Christ Was and IS GOD - clearly the story would have played better had you acknowledged that or at least NOT tried to present the heretical ideas of 6th Century Gnostic believers and their corruption of Early Church Christianity. Pray YOU can find the truth before the End. Jesus DOES Love You. John 3:16.

@ Elijah

While respectfully leaving aside the question of personal belief regarding the true nature of Christ, as this is not the place to proselytize, I do agree that it's rather curious that many otherwise intelligent people misinterpret the very staightforward evidence regarding what Christ claimed about himself.

I met Paul, but I don't know what I missed and I died poisoned...

I'm not sure about what I did right this time... I just found a different companion for my mission, but on my side I didn't do anything particularly different...

I can't find this gamebook in the downloads list, so I can't be sure about what is the trick...
It will be on the Windhammer site.

Cut down by bandits in the night... road to Ptolemais. ;-) Atmospheric, yet weird to me personally.

Heavy on the written word and low on decision making.

@gigs
this gamebook is quite open to different solutions and combinations: there is no one true path.
Have a look at the text version of the adventure (the location of the text version is mentioned few messages ago) and you'll realize this.

The historical context is very rich and well researched.

Well I died. love the setting and the detail, it reminds me of a comment one of the Doctor who writers made about the historical stories, that there are periods of history just as dangerous and alien as any other planets.

I do wonder though how useful some of the attributes are, sinse Though I believe I died through failing a test of lore and getting the poisoned cup routine, I didn't notice any other tests, ---- unless the website automatically passes tests when you have the right attribute, I'm not sure.

Well I did it, though the ending was a bit abrupt.

Excellent!

Though light on decision-making, there are many paths to explore in this book, and it's worth revisiting many times.
Overall a very atmospheric and thought-provoking gamebook; sort of a more serious Life of Brian!

I have to say this author has some of the more unorthodox gamebooks on this site - the Arthurian adventure is also particularly good. Onto my last one now: Hunger of the Wolf!

Thanks a lot for these offerings (no pun intended).

Not IMO a spoiler, but as u can guess, this adventure does not change history. So pointless quest, how ever interesting it is. Moral of the story being:

Hey this was really good. Gonna go back and try the higher SKILL option and see if I can rescue the priestess of Aphrodite...

Extreme kudos on making a gamebook with such a controversial plot. It was quite entertaining, and the break from semi-cliched sci-fi plot was good. I typically like more battles, but the choices made up for that. I'm not sure if there are multiple endings, but I may well come back to look for them. The character option was nice too.
