Conspiracy of Ravens

You live your life on the streets, a junior member in a Thieves Guild that controls all of the nefarious dealing in Port Aramais.

Do you have what it takes to survive? Can you survive the hard life of a rogue while dodging the knife that your frenemy is trying to shove in your back?

A bit of background: I'm a big fan of two different series that have thieves as some of the major characters. One is the Riftwar Saga by Raymond Feist, which has a character named Jimmy The Hand who grew up as a thief but has aspirations of a better life. The second is the Gentleman Bastard series by Scott Lynch. Think of it as a gritty story, set it a land similar to italy that features grifters doing what they do best - until everything goes sideways. If you're looking for the next book to read, do yourself a favor and check out each of these.

Thanks!  That is much better!


No stranger to html, so I should be able to get by.


Thanks again.

Well, just so I'm clear, what is the other option instead of RTE?  Creating in < source > mode?  I've downloaded the CYSE(for chrome) and It doesn't make the editor appear any different as far as I can tell.

Took a while, I tried all options of Space after the one, no spaces, multiple lines, only positive values, simple logic, sacrificed a small chicken, etc....


It came down to the editor being too helpful when I created the page.  Even though they were not visible, it added extra spans in between the different pieces of logic.  I'm guessing the interpreter barfed on what it perceived as incomplete logic statements.


So you might want to update your article (related to using Variables in pages) to suggest users check the source of the page if they start acting strange.  Also, If you ever want a second set of eyes to look at the sourcecode, let me know.  It's been a few years since I've done web/Ui work, but I live in the c# world at my job.

While I'm waiting on the devs to respond to my bug report, I thought I'd take a moment and say ..


I grew up on Choose Your Own Adventure books in the 70s and 80s and always tthought that it would be a fun endeavor to create my own.  I'm glad I found the site and can't wait to get started reading some of the existing stories and also creating my own.

Did a bit of debugging on the above issue.  It happens when I leaving a page that contains variable text.

e.g. %%Late%<=%-1%This is the text displayed if you packed the night before.  You also get an additional option to leave early.%%


According to http://chooseyourstory.com/help/articles/article.aspx?ArticleId=3850, that appears to be the correct format, unless I'm just missing something....

New to the site and I'm creating my first story - so I know  I have a lot to learn, but I think this is an issue with the system.

First page works fine, second  page works fine, but any link on the second page results in an error.  I have links with some logic built in and a link that does nothing but go to the next page.  Error is the same regardless.  I've tried changing the name of the target page as well as the content of the target page.  Same issue each time:

Input string was not in a correct format.
