Featured Story The Order of the Midnight Sun
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.
The Tower
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. Table of Contents -- Chapters The OutskirtsThe Road to SanctumThe City of SanctumThe Mountain passThe FringesOrc HighwayTroll CanyonCannibal CreekShadow TerritoryThe Tower. 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.
The Tower: Embarking from the Far Land
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. Special ThanksSir_Lancegalawain - Excellent support and quest writingmadglee - My most trusted advisor (And Goddam can he ever write :D Go mommy Go)Solostrike - ScriptingJava - Pics and Some proofreading (on mine because Lance's work is usually without error)October - Some Editing.DarthVader_13 - Testing.Commentors (fans) - Thank so much Authors Note I would have liked to keep Lance as co-author but his life became busy and he could not help me in the end. Thank you for writing the quests you did! You were my number one special thanks.

Character Development on 4/14/2014 3:39:37 PM
Character development is simply the occasion when the story influences how the character behaves. You need to write a scene that effects a character so that he isn't the same as he was before the scene and then you need to consistently write him in this new fashion.
timing an variable by percentage? on 4/11/2014 7:21:36 PM
Lets say you want 50% of X. I think you can do X := X * 0.5. If you can't, just do X := X * 50 / 100

Agreed.
No cheating script? on 4/11/2014 1:08:38 PM
If you disable the back button, your game will be unpublished. The back button is a sacred right of readers and anyone who disables it for even one page will have their game unpublished. No tolerance.

I like the point that the commenter is trying to get across but the writing needs some work. This isn't quite featureable. "The only big problem is the bugs that might need a little bit of editing to get rid of it" " The storyline flowed nicely and I like it how you could sometimes make big choice" " The storygame is very non-linear, which gives more freedom to the player, but a little more linearity would perfect it" (perfect what?)
[Point Rewards] Draw My Attention to Something! on 4/10/2014 2:24:56 AM
Agreed on all points, but as I said, if you want points for tags, you have to list all of the tags you think it should have, not just say which are being removed.

Difference between the Global link and the page? on 4/9/2014 8:57:05 PM
Global Page is a page script that triggers on all pages. Global Link is a link script that triggers on all links.
