Alundra: Shadow in the Dreamscape
Written by Estrelita Farr
To those who played Alundra:
Nice game, isn’t it? No, really, why would I write a novelisation for this game if I didn’t like it? If you’ve read my other novelisation Breath of Fire III: Of Gods and Dragons, you might be expecting some major storyline alteration, but for Alundra: Shadow in the Dreamscape, I’ll be following the main storyline quite closely. However, you might feel it’s rather different from the game since I did some major changes to each scene, such as the order of minor things (i.e. talk to NPC A / NPC B / NPC C becomes talk to NPC B / C / A, etc), when and which characters are introduced (really, this game introduces too many characters at the beginning), total scene overhaul, extra story padding, etc… but the main storyline stays mainly the same. Still, hopefully I’ll be able to add more emotion to the story!
To those who haven’t played Alundra:
Well, you should, it’s a good action RPG game! I did find some parts of the story with plot holes… but if you don’t mind spoilers (or if you want to read this just for fun), I tend to describe everything as though the reader has never even seen the game before, so no problem there!
To those who have / haven’t played Alundra 2:
Ah, no worries; Alundra 2 is set in an alternate universe (at least I’d think so) and has no relations to Alundra as far as I can see, so there won’t be any spoilers from that game in this novelisation. I like Alundra 2 too, but I like Alundra more!
To every reader in general:
Beware of lengthy chapters; if you’ve read my other novelisation Breath of Fire III: Of Gods and Dragons, you’ll see what I mean. Regardless, I hope you’ll enjoy this story!
