It's really cool to see horror elements in a milieu that's not contemporary or Western. I was really pleased with the ending. I felt it might have benefited from having a distinct font style for links that were going to unfold on the page versus ones that were going to progress the story.

Thank you!

I like that idea for links--will definitely implement it later on. :)

Charming! As a fan of Judge Dee, it was a pleasure to see this play out.

Super-cool. I was smiling all the way through, and the end was perfect.

Thanks! 

And yeah, that's a good point. That bit is kinda buggy and I'm not very satisfied with it, but I ran out of time to finesse it and make it work better. 

Appreciate the feedback! :)
