It took the form of a "choose-your-own-adventure" story.

  • This story uses the conventions of a "choose-your-own-adventure" story, a device that has previously been used in earnest in the Decide Your Destiny and Make Your Own Adventure/Find Your Fate series. However, unlike with those books, this story makes the deviations based on the listener's choices a part of the narrative through the use of the Resurrectionist, meaning there are no real choices made by the listener, and no alternative sequences of events.
  • John Dorney, the writer, originally planned on using a different villain for this story. However, this "obvious" villain, presumably the Ogrons, were already being used in one of Dorney's stories in a different range.
