As the recent 3D movie rendition of Beowulf proves, the Anglo -Saxon epic is still in the minds of storytellers even over a thousand years after the first scops recited it. Recently in human history, video games have appeared as a form of storytelling. In particular, the role-playing game genre particularly suits epic stories, and thus would be an ideal carrier for the themes and adventures which have made Beowulf stand the test of time. Thus, this thesis seeks to create a faithful adaption of Beowulf.
