New Podcast and Faery: Legends of Avalon

Faery: Legends of Avalon Screenshot

In a nutshell, Faery: Legends of Avalon is a very simple, straightforward RPG done in classic style. The player takes on the role of a fairy who must help save rapidly-dwindling magical lands being eroded by a world of non-believers. Quests are of the "talk to X, go to Y, do Z, talk to X again" variety and combat is a streamlined turn-based system. If you've ever played an RPG, then you know what this is all about. It's basic, basic stuff. While the general lack of complexity might be seen as a negative in most cases, I have to say that it's appealing here.
