Tuuli is a Z-machine interactive fiction story written with Inform 7 and is © 2017 by Daurmith and Ruber Eaglenest. It was an entry in IF Comp 2017 where it took 16th place.

In this short story, you play as Lenne-who-would-be-the-witch. You wake screaming, knowing that Mákke is dead, knowing that Mákke is no longer the witch, and knowing that black ships approach the village, bringing death. Afraid, you also know what you now must do. You must perform the ritual and summon the storm.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the story.


Cliff Path On thebeach In thevillage In Mákke'shut out in

In Mákke's hut

Mákke has fallen. You must talk to Árvet.

On the beach

> x Arvet. x albatross. talk to Arvet.

This isn't the only way this conversation can go, but I don't think you can avoid your destiny here either:

> 1. 1. 2. 1. 1. 1.

> 2. 2. 1. 1. 1.

You must perform the ritual.

They put the body on the witch stone.

On the beach

Talk to Chief Árvet:

> talk to chief.

Examine what's here. When you're done, go east to end this story.

> x bodies. x me. x wound. x albatross. x sea.

> e.

The village is safe, but you've paid a heavy price, Witch Lenne.
