THE LEGEND OF BARFUS
The Legend of Barfus is the first RPG that casts the player as a completely evil monster character. Barfus was an evil megalomaniacal warrior who killed mercilessly. Upon death Barfus' soul is revived by Vedal, who is amassing his own undead dungeon army. This is where the game starts, as the player takes over the resurrected Barfus, currently weakened in his reborn state. The first chapter of the game (an almost finished, playable version available here) sees Barfus take on various quests given to him by Vedal, ultimately overtaking "Pleasantville" a nearby town.
