Lyna's Story is one of the cleverest DMODs I've played for a while. Clever use of graphics and map work to keep the DMOD small.

Now I see it's been classed as a romp, God knows why as this is definitely a Quest - both in subject matter and in length of play.

New graphics, a few from other DMODs with due credit given, new scripting that is extremely well done - the volcanoes, the palette changes...

Use of sounds is great, as are the midis, although most are from the original (once again a great way to keep the DMOD small).

Bonuses - a riddle, Milder's ghost, and a completely believable female main character.

Bugs: there were some bugs I found, but they were due to me saving without using a save machine - which is a no-no in this dmod. I guess cheaters never prosper. A small hardness bug in the shadow world.

Easy of play - very easy... I didn't die once. Found this detracted a little from the story, but not much.

Overall a nice Quest. Pleasant and with lots of extra goodies. 9.4 out of 10
