Choices in battle are affected by your abilities. A negative score, is a result of screwing all of the known universe. A positive score, is a result in success. Versions 1 - Published.

Blue versus red in a classic battle of good versus evil and right versus wrong. This is more story than game and a lot more story than anything I've written previously. There is one true ending (marked by a stirring legend), one other really good ending and there are at least two other legitimate endings. All legitimate endings include epilogues. Disclaimers (If you can't cope with the following, don't play it.) Disclaimer: If you don't read the disclaimers, you will look stupid on the comments screen. Disclaimer: Making selfless choices will make the storygame harder, particularly in the first few chapters. Disclaimer: Fourteen year olds were older in olden times. Disclaimer: I don't advocate the use of drugs, particularly by minors. Disclaimer: It is highly suggested that you don't try finishing this in one go. It's truly way too long for that. There are lots of pages and lots of long pages. Save and do this in sessions for proper enjoyment. Only my playtesters are forced to go through this all at once, feel sorry for them :) (If you don't have an account and can't save, make one, this site is ridiculously awesome. Click the login link and hit Sign Up) (Although, if you can finish it in one go then that's fantastic because you won't forget tiny details that are prominent on practically every page.) Disclaimer: It is possible that it might tell you that you are something like sixteen years and twelve(+) months old. Assume that that's seventeen years old, Disclaimer: This storygame might be extremely hard. There will be times when you want to quit, one time in particular, don't. There are provisions in there to save you. Clarification: I'm talking about the maze! Really sorry about that guys, I do regret writing that in. All you have to do is click around for awhile and it will save you, though. Disclaimer: Yes, I am aware of the sexual allusions that are made in many fight scenes. I find it funny when your body is ravished by the sword of a Crimson Knight. I find it even funnier that you're so happy to ravish him back. Disclaimer: The reason it takes so long to travel around the country (in the magnitude of months) is due to your oath to help the community and thus the frequent stops you must make. This also explains why Crimson Knights get ahead so easily. Disclaimer: The fight scenes are as 3J as ever. Disclaimer: If things seem linear to you. They aren't. Lots of options are based on random events, your own abilities, past actions, and many other things. Disclaimer: There are long patches of story. Deal with it. Disclaimer: For you Thelemites out there, this is obviously not an actual representation of Thelema in any way shape or form, I understand that most of it probably doesn't check out with Thelema, This is a work of pure fantasy and I hope you enjoy it anyway :) Disclaimer: This disclaimer will put you into a paradox: When making character forming decisions, if you choose unbalanced and lopsidedly powerful/weak character traits, you could find yourself in a much more difficult storygame than if you were balanced BUT you will also possibly have the opportunity (if you play your cards right) to see the most epic pages in the storygame. Choose wisely. When building a character, remember that ether is more easily attained throughout the storygame than combat is. Disclaimer: There are literally an insane amount of scripts going on at all times, if you get to a reset game link or anything like that or you reset it yourself. Close the window and re-open it or things will be messed up. Special Thanks 1. The Community of CYS for putting up with my huge 1year+ state of writer's block. Alexp for keeping the site up. I Love You, Alex. (In a macho, I'm the man, kinda way). 2. Anubis and Darthvader_13 for playtesting this thing. 3. Anubis's mom and madglee for appearing in the storygame, in one way or another. 4. Endmaster for inspiring certain aspects of the way that this is written and the time period it covers. 5. Aleister Crowley for his works of Thelema, The A.:.A, and most importantly, his Initiatory Structure and his law: "Love is the Law, Love Under Will." 6. Carlos Castaneda who's books inspired the character Tom Wan. 7. The Icelandic people for having such awesome names. (No, this isn't random). 8. My body and it's capability to write 80-100+ pages in a day and sleep less than I probably should.
G(l)aile is a young man, living in the outskirts. His father is a wealthy merchant in Sanctum. He plans on setting out to see his father, but many things turn up and his adventure goes rotten. Hunt for your food, collect ten different weapons each with a generic set of uses in the game,complete difficult puzzles, defeat trolls, persuade orcs, complete quests, evade or hunt massive tribes of wandering cannibals, combat shadows, save your father, find out a long dead truth about your family and yourself and destroy the tower -- pillar of evil. All here in the Tower. Special Thanks madglee - Thank you for helping me with editing, providing support and testing. Actually you've tested my game a BAZILLION of times, and I thank you so much. Your pinpoint editing skills have come in more then handy. You rule dude. Actually you go beyond that, you just plain KICKASS!Exiled Phoenix - You really supported me and gave me great compliments that helped me keep going.Havacoman - No matter what are differences are, you kick ass at pictures.Weedy - Thanks for some of the item pictures man.

Tips and Hints Visit everything you can before leaving an area, always upgrade your statistics if you can. If you don't you may find yourself stuck. READ EVERYTHING. Also visit libraries for important tips on the game. Getting the most weapons as you can is essential as well. Endings There are three/four endings. One of them you don't get to leave comments on. Death - No commenting.Bad - Commenting (Score in the negatives)Medium - Commenting (Score in the positives)Good - Commenting (Score over 100 Grand) Do not say this in your comments PLEASE!!!! I realize that not every link displays a page number. This is because, previous page links, next chapter links, and links that have nothing to do with the story get nothing. DO NOT BASE YOUR COMMENTS ON THIS!!!! I also realize that its very possible to cheat in many parts of the game. Deal with it. Cheaters will be cheaters. I also also realize that sometimes when you die or win a battle, the events will be hazy. There are two reasons for this, one I cant reveal as it partains to the story. However battles in this game are not "hollywood-ised". Often people die without knowing what happened. Suddenly your laying there with blood pooling from your arteries and you have no idea what happened. That happens quite a bit in the game. Length The length in this game varies based on your difficulty level and your choices. It can be anywhere from a length six to a length eight. The JJJ Challenge If you either beat this game with the best ending I will send you (via e-mail) a formatted strategy guide of the tower including how to get the best possible score, in the making, secrets of the game, complete walk through, and most importantly G(l)ailes epilogue.
You will need the password from the end of the first "Tower" to play this game! (The one in invisible text between two brackets on the last page). Don't worry; if you forgot it and can prove you beat the game by having a comment of over 100,000 score, then I will tell you the password. What happened to Glaile post death? Can't give away much because it can ruin the Tower I! This will be the introduction to the land of Serennia. Think about it like the Hobbit to the Lord of The Rings. STORY: 0 - Arrive from Far Land (Everywhere) View http://www.myadventuregame.com/story/All_About_Serennia.aspx for more about the timeline.

I'd start with Ground Zero. It's an incredible story and an example of the type of branching that is done in the strongest works.Item effects on 11/24/2013 11:25:25 PM
You should learn to script :).Item effects on 11/23/2013 5:41:06 PM
This is the feature wishing well... threads aren't meant to die here.Item effects on 11/22/2013 1:43:41 PM
I agree that this is a good suggestion. However, try this for now: For example, lets say you have a banana which gives health. Set the banana to always take the player to one page (call that page, eat banana or something). On that page, have only one link which is a previous page link. On that link add an item drop so the banana gets dropped and also add a health increase. If they can accrue multiple bananas, make sure the link has count multiple checked. OR, you can do it more cleanly with scripting.A New Trophy Suggestion on 11/22/2013 1:39:19 PM
This would only encourage good writers to make new accounts or stop writing.New Moderator: BerkaZerka on 11/2/2013 4:08:47 PM
October, madglee and I have decided that the site could use another moderator to clean up forum threads that the three of us aren't participating in. We've decided to give moderator powers to BerkaZerka because he seems to be the perfect blend of responsible and engaged. Congratulations, BZ!Tangible path trees. on 10/17/2013 11:59:06 AM

The classic editor is intentionally feature stripped down. If you want features, use the advanced editor :).Trophies. on 10/16/2013 12:45:38 PM
On Trophies Endmaster had 4 trophies in 2008. Therefore by changing the trophy restriction to 3, he would have gotten a trophy, providing he had enough points at that point (possible). On Time Time is important. As I've said above, the average time required to get the trophy is also the time that the community has to weed out potential assholes or what have you. If it takes awhile to get a trophy, then it makes it more likely that the people who get the trophy will be long-lasting members of the community. Perhaps if it had taken longer for Havacoman, Solostrike and the gang to get trophies, they wouldn't have gotten them and then we wouldn't have inactive trophy users. Who knows? The other thing is that trophies are the highest honor a user can have. They shouldn't be too plentiful. Let users set goals on lower aims first. Start with attempting to get a featured story or integrate yourself with the community. Rate every game on the site, etc, etc. A trophy is akin to a gold medal. You don't sign up for your first gymnastics class and feel like a gold medal is extremely plausible. You sign up, you aim to compete in your first competition. Then you aim to win a competition. Then you aim to win a bigger competition. Then you aim to qualify for the olympics, etc.
