You are Jesus, and you are on a scavenger hunt in order to convert followers. Literally. Here is a snippet of your conversation with Mary of Magdala:

Mary continues,'Rabbina, I am yours alone! But I am missing something very important to me. My medallion is lost. Will ye find it for me? When you have found it, bring it to me, so I may wear it around my neck for all to see. Only then can I follow you for the rest of my days!'
Jesus says,'Mary, I will find it for thee.'

>CONVERT MARY

Jesus says,'Damn the flesh that depends on the soul. Damn the soul that depends on the flesh.'
But Mary looked at Jesus, replying, 'Rabbi, I have lost my medallion 'round my neck. What good is the flesh if it cannot be adored with jewelry?'

While Jesus, at least in this incarnation, does not know how to heal the sick, he can engage in fights and has hit points. But then, I don't want to spoil too much for you.

In short, it was an amusing game to play, but the weak parser, lack of an undo, omission of the verb SMITE (okay, just kidding but it would have been a lovely touch), and tedium of the plot caused me to lose interest.

A good attempt and an original and quirky plot, but it just didn't hold my attention.
