What I liked

I liked that level of autonomy that you as a player posses. Despite not actually doing much within the game, I still felt like I was a relevant part of the story. I didn’t really understand what to do at the very beginning or how to strategize so I didn’t progress any main quest line despite interacting with many Gods.
I never competed any quests beyond the first tier of quests, yet when the endgame came around, I felt like I was useful.

There’s also a little bit of something for everyone from story telling, to puzzles, to riddles, to “combat”. Many elements of this performance were enjoyable but not my strong suit until the game at the end. I was able to feel useful to my team despite competing literally no quests and failing to obtain enough pantheon points.

What I didn't like

I would love for the mechanics of the game to be explained before we get into the main event because I want to spend all my time going on quests. The more time I’m able to have fun in there the better.
There was so much work and love put into this production that it was a shame that I didn’t have enough time to explore more. There aren’t words to describe the passions that these actors gone to waste due to time constraints of explaining such a different theatrical production.

My overall impression

The cast did a really good job for the budget that they were allotted. The costumes looked good, and the performers embodied their personas well.

The experience was unique and nothing like I have ever been apart of before. It was pretty well refined for the amount of improvisation that is required in something of this intensity.

I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys watching improve as well as improving themselves.
Good job, can’t wait to go again.
