The Prince of England has been kidnapped! And with the country still reeling from plague and rebellion, civil war now looms on the horizon—unless someone can recover him in time.
A Squire's Tale
is a 150,000-word interactive adventure by Benjamin Appleby-Dean, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
You are squire to Lady Catherine of the King's Own Retainers, sent on a secret mission across England to find the heir at any cost. Your search has brought you to the Fair at Crook’s Field—but you discover a much stranger festival being held on the outskirts. The Goblin Market is in full swing, and any one of its denizens might hold a clue to finding the Prince, or offer experiences you can hardly dream of.
Will you be tempted by the fortune-teller and her young apprentice? Dazzled by the alchemist and his golden promises? Drawn into the tent of marvels, and to the dancers who hide behind their veils? Or will you stay loyal to your Lady Catherine—and perhaps even become more than a squire to her.
The Market, so they tell you, can provide all these things and more—as long as you’re prepared to pay the price…
