Here it is, the beginning of the most ambitious project ever undertaken by the Phantasy Star Pages: Phantasy Star-- The Epic. This is a full novelization of the story of Alis and her adventure in the original Phantasy Star game. It will be serialized into chapters, and presented here, one chapter at a time. Veterans of the game will recognize the story, especially the quotes taken directly from the game that appear in boldface. Yet this is no mere story recap; this is a full blown dramatization of the ultimate modern RPG. The Phantasy Star Story was just a warmup, a practice exercise. Here is where the force that has driven me to bring you the Phantasy Star Pages finds its full expression. Whether you like it or hate it, let me know what you think.
