This D-mod is one of the three entries in the Dink Network Alternative Hero D-mod Contest 2002. The others are Cycles of Evil by Redink1 and Quest for the Golden Nut by James Perley.

Storyline: You play Lyna, Milder’s widow. Knights have been killed and since Dink is not available, and there are no volunteers for the job, Lyna decides to go herself, and she embarks on an journey to find out what has happened to them.

Map and Graphics: The map is outstanding. It seems like a whole different world with the winding roads and the cliffs and the entrances to the caves. I was truely surprised when I saw it.

Music: Fits the situation.

Good: The best thing about this D-mod is the fact that the hero is actually a heroine. I do not think there are other D-mods with a heroine - I never saw one at least, nor heard of any – and it is the best feature of this D-mod.
There are acutally two worlds in one: the normal world and the shadowworld. At first I did not even notice that I had entered a different world, until I was killed by a duck, and a few minutes later by nuts from a tree. The way Lina uses a weapon is very good. The scene with the knight inside the house is done really good, as is the scene on top of the hills. The sound effects for Lyna are well done. It may seem rather insignificant, but when you hear it you realise that sounds do make up a great deal of the gameplay.

Not so good: I was a bit lost at first and did not know what to do; some more hints could have been helpful.

Overall: A truly alternative hero D-mod.

Fit for: If you like playing alternative hero D-mods, this is a must download. If you do not like them, give it a try anyway!
