A Tale of Arms and Ale is a story-driven RPG, in which you take on the role of a stereotypical high-fantasy barkeep in the city of Kastonia. In order to keep your family’s bar afloat while your parents take a year-long sabbatical, you must tend bar and cater to the various needs of your eccentric patrons. Some just come to drink, but others come with a lust for adventure. 

However, in the wake of a cataclysmic event that shakes the city to its core, you find yourself in the midst of a political war between the city's major factions. With your network of eager adventurers, they'll soon turn to you for aid. It's up to you to decide whose vision for Kastonia is just, and determine the fate of the events to come.

What will you do?

Nice game so far :) I was just... curious - why is this game 'tagged' erotic? 

Thanks for catching that! I'll untag that posthaste.

Ah. So it was by accident. Shame. I wouldn't have minded a date once in a while with one or two patrons haha. But good thing I mentioned it then :) 

Haha, good to know- we'll keep that in mind! ;)
