We are well-disposed towards the children of the forest and abhor the practices of some greedy people who ruthlessly burned down their forests and massacred many children in the process. The ensuing war, which lasted almost 2000 years, made the desperate children realize that only a pact with the dark side of magic could save them and turn the tide of this war in their favor. But for this they need a specific black stone – the dragonglass! We are supposed to get it for them. But if we can actually find obsidian, which is the name of the volcanic rock the Children of the Forest need to make weapons, should we really hand it over to them? A decision must be made.

An exciting story that made us protagonists in a GoT-inspired fantasy adventure that visibly rubbed off on us! It is of course not so easy to get in touch with one of the magical forest creatures, because they are known to be very shy and speak a different language. But in the end, we managed to win the trust of one of the children and try to help her. But can we trust her too? We really enjoyed the interaction with the beautifully made-up actress and her live acting.

If you like RPGs and are really into fantasy stories, you will love Age of Dawn, the prequel to The Thrones: The Great War. Medieval setting (atmospheric) with successful transitions between the different locations. There are a few physical activities, lots of interactions and puzzles that are well integrated into the plot. As the fifth and last room at the Lock – a very friendly and nice operator, with whom we felt very comfortable – I liked The Age of Dawn best. Thank you for the beautiful day and the nice conversations. We’ll be back to play your new rooms.
