Twilight of the Dogs
by Jake Wildstrom

Twilight of the Dogs is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2004 by Jake Wildstrom. It was a participant in the Speed-IF That Dare Not Speak Its Number event.

In this short game, you play as a human warrior in the middle of a bloody war with the Dogs. Your regiment has recently won a battle. Now it's time to make an attack on the Dogs' last fortress.

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

Thank You to my Patreon supporters

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
