Literally the most thrilling and detailed story ever!

If I remember correctly, Innkeeper was the first story by EndMaster I ever read, but I have not read it since until now. I remember enjoying it and now see that it has certainly lived up to, and perhaps exceeded my memory of it.
It is especially amusing to reread this after having read Rogues not too long ago, especially the parts with Flameflower. There are so many parts of Innkeeper I had forgotten that were referenced in Rogues, and I already want to read Rogues again because of that.

The characters in Innkeeper might be one of my favorite things about it. They turn a decent game about running an inn into the great story that it is. I felt as if I could picture them all in my head well, especially Wendy, and the attitude everyone had towards Cindy was hilarious. The story itself is good to and certainly well-written, but it’s the characters that really make it.

There were a lot of moments that made me laugh. Taking Rita’s advice to have the employees of the other inn disfigured being an option among the choices was certainly not among the least of these.
“(Your liver is useless though)” This aside was another great moment, as was the main character admiring how Olaf is able to restrain himself from breaking bones in order to distract himself from the beating he was receiving was another one.

Because the story has very little rejoining of branches, it is definitely worth going back and making every choice. A lot of the ends are similar, but because the events leading up to those ends are always different, that does not make the story dull after a few endings. My favorite end would probably be the one in which he becomes a mad scientist and dies a peaceful death.

This is a story that probably deserves a good bit more recognition than it actually gets. While it is in the fantasy section, the fantasy elements are generally quite light, and it is definitely more like a regular story of a guy trying to run a business that happens to be set in a fantasy universe than some fantasy sword and sorcery adventure. If you aren’t that into the latter type of story, that will not prevent you from enjoying Innkeeper.
Thanks for a great story!

Highly entertaining, but I was hoping to get a free beer recipe.

If you like this you should read Rogues, which is sort of a sequel: http://chooseyourstory.com/Story/Rogues.aspx

Although Rogues is a half a million word epic, and I always appreciated the low key and grounded nature of Innkeeper.

It's hard to believe that managing an inn and taking university classes is possible. Strangely enough, the hectic nature of this story adds to the immersion since you focus on many factors and the consequences of the decisions you make. Your endings are also interesting, even if most of them are very similar. Who knew such a good Infinite Story was possible with mostly one setting.
