Cking, The Reader
Hi everyone! Cking here! I don't usually write or comment much, but I do love to read/play story games on this site. I've written one story so far: a fan fiction based on the Underland Chronicles. I am currently working on several original stories based in the same universe. The Sanctinonium: a dystopia where curiosity and inquiry is seriously frowned upon. The story will focus one one family and the way each person reacts to their given situation. If I were to say anymore that would give away the story.
Foes and friends shall test your trust.
Betray one for the other, if you must.
Each blind to the other's plight.
Only you can set things right.
Inspired by "The Underland Chronicles"
(Lizzie has no relation to the character from the books.)
Sam Diamond is a girl born to loving parents. She loves to ask questions just like her mother, but the Sanctimonium does not tolerate questions. This may pose serious problems for Sam as she grows up in the Sanctimonium. A place where curiosity is forbidden and compliance is rewarded. This is the Sanctimonium: inquire at your own risk.
Martha Diamond: a suspected Fox. She has been called that for so long, but no one has ever been able to prove it. It is only when her daughter Sam begins to develop the same traits that Martha decides to stop hiding. She will not allow Sam to experience the horrors that she has. Never.
The Rat Race. That's the name of the game. Rachel and her fellow "rats" have been conscripted into a game of cunning and intelligence. Only two participants, a man and a woman, may win and be deemed true Foxes. They will live their lives together in the city's upper districts and act as scientists, teachers, and spies against the Sanctimonium. The rest will be cast aside as Rats who will live their lives in squalor in the Proctorium's underground districts. The Rats are free to leave anytime they wish, but the only other city for miles is the dreaded Sanctimonium.

Alright, added 3 pages to the Fox's Shadow yesterday. Slow progress, but it's something.

I'm creating this thread to hopefully keep me motivated and track my progress for these stories. Each Sanctimonium story will focus on one of the three main character's point of view. Foxes and Wolves will focus on Sam and, to avoid giving anything away, how she copes with growing up under the Sanctimonium. (Plus the problems she could potentially get herself involved in) The Fox's Shadow will focus on Martha, Sam's mother, both trying to cope with her past and Sam's problems. The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing will focus on Mike and what it's like to work for the Sanctimonium along with becoming someone he never thought he would be. The stories are supposed to be intertwined with one another and show different perspectives of one story. This may be too ambitious to complete, but I'm willing to try. I'll try to update my daily progress to keep myself motivated. Here we go.

Hi! I hope you have fun.

What sort of order member or monster you would like to be including name, appearance and general manner as well as some description about your lair, dungeon room etc.
Name: Charlene Chameleon
Description: A light green skinned chameleon that is the size of the average person. She is very sociable, kind, and intelligent. However, misuse words in writing and she will turn a fiery red color as she become sarcastic, sadistic, and very angry.
Dungeon Room: The room is lined with electric blue podiums that have a red button each of them. Underneath the podiums is a vat of rushing water filled with electric eels. Across from the podiums is a row of seats for an audience that will never appear.
What particular feature of bad writing you would like to punish.
Bad grammar and misusing words in the incorrect context. An example would be "I literally died." when the character couldn't have actually died.
How you would test people and punish those who fail the test. The funnier the better.
Three bad authors would be tested against one another at once. They would be tied to the podiums as Charlene asks them questions about homophones, the correct use of literally, and the proper design of metaphors. If they get 20 questions correct then they may leave the room and go to another. If they are incorrect the eels will leap up and shock them until they get the correct answer. Charlene will also provide sarcastic commentary. For example, if literally is misused and the eels shock them Charlene will say "Were you literally or metaphorically shocked just now?"
Should I make Moonstone into a storygame? on 3/31/2016 6:39:11 PM
Right...probably should have read the entire thread before I posted. Oh well, lesson learned!

Can you give more information about your story? Every story needs some sort of conflict to drive it, what would the conflict in your story be? Are your heroes going on an adventure, fighting a great villain, maybe fighting amongst themselves even? I'd suggest to start with figuring out what drives your story and characters. Why are they doing what they do? I hope you have fun!

It definitely sounds interesting.
