Too many storygame ideas, not enough time and motivation.

Hi, my CYS name is Mystic Warrior, so feel free to call me Myst or any other variation of my name you prefer. 

I'm currently a student in college, and working on a storygame that may or may not be published in the near future depending on what direction my life takes. Motivation seems to come and go rather spontaneously for me, so don't hold your breath waiting for the next story. So far, I've written three storygames: DreamtruderBreaker and Fall to Hopelessness. I would appreciate it if you, random reader of my profile, could take the time to read through these.

Note: For Dreamtruder, there is a mistake in the squirrel challenge of the Understanding stage. Just click (1,1) to get past it. Even if you don't get past it the first time, there is yet another variable error which means your health point wouldn't get deducted a second time, which is really for the best considering it allows you to bypass the first error.

Feel free to message me if you want to talk. I might not always reply immediately, but I'll eventually get back to you.

Will be putting more quotes here if I see any (although I don't think I'll have many due to how infrequently I seem to post in the forums):

Pfft, look at Miss Fancypants Writer here, actually writing things. - Mizal

Current activity: trying to catch up on everything that has happened here, and (sometimes) working on a storygame.

Featured Story Breaker

Beneath the seas, hidden from the Ones Above, our society goes about our normal, routinely lives. I cannot help but feel bored with all that is going on, until I find the letter. A letter that sends me on a journey to deliver a magical item to the group of people that have been villainized over the years, the letter that challenges everything I thought I knew. But which side is on the side of good? How can I break out of the only world I have ever known? Should I join the heroic villains or the villanous hero? I have finally gotten the adventure I always needed, but not exactly the one I wanted.

Note: This game was created for Camelon's break contest. During the part where a specialist is assigned to the breakers, there are three different paths (Lawbreaker, Breaker of People and Breaker and Enterer). Due to time constraints, for those who would like to know, Breaker of People is the longest path, followed by Lawbreaker and Breaker and Enterer, but aside from the epilogues, it all leads to the same chapter 5. As before, feel free to comment or message me if you encounter any issues or problems that I should fix.


Featured Story Dreamtruder

"The delicate balance between the dream world and the real world is disrupted. You intruded and messed up the dream of an innocent. By talking about this with an Unknowing, the possibility of the dreamstage being unveiled is now greater than ever. The Jury has made a decision - we have no choice but to send you to The Jungle..."

Dreamtruder

 

 

Life was hard, balancing work and relaxation. Then the nightmares came, and all I ever wanted was to be free of them. Yet, I never accounted for this - finding out the truth about the dream world, exploring the vast plane of the imagination...only to be whisked away to the longest nightmare ever. 

Think a jungle's bad? Try a fictional jungle, where literally anything can happen, and the most creative minds have conspired to give you a hard time.

 

 

 

Note: This game was created for Mizal's 'Welcome to the Jungle' contest. There are several epilogues, and while the main one is the normal Dreamtruder path, others include Dream director, Dreamcaster, Dreamediator, and Dreamhero. Fancy a challenge? Try completing the Jungle challenge without picking up any dreampowers - it's possible, but requires a bit of thinking and planning ahead. Also, for some items, click the 'use' button as a link would not be provided (if this is the case, it would be specified in the object description)

Since this would be my first published storygame, I am still relatively new to this. Feel free to message me or spam the comments if you encounter any issues, have any suggestions for improvement, or just have something you want to say.

Enjoy!


Fall to Hopelessness

A quest doomed from the start. A man with an unwavering yet unusual moral compass. A daughter in the darkest depths of the night sky.

It isn't truly over until all hope is lost.

'Good and evil, heroes and villains… they are all fantasies created by the world. There are only two types of people: the people you care about, and the people you don’t.'

Arnold Cyzila's best life may have been long since over, but he would do anything to save his daughter from the clutches of her confinement. Even stealing an airplane, killing the innocent, and entering a dangerous world where death is almost guaranteed. 

[Warning: There are some mentions of murder, deaths and several dark themes, so if those things make you uncomfortable, perhaps it is better not to read this story.]

Note: I initially did not plan on joining this contest, yet I'm glad I did since it has motivated me to publish a new storygame. It is related to Dreamtruder in a way… well, you’ll see. While this story may not be as long as my previous two, it was interesting to write a shorter project. 

Just like all my other storygames, commenting and rating this story are both highly welcomed and appreciated. Also, as I have used quite a lot of variables in several fight scenes, let me know if you ever encounter a page where there are no visible links. 

Lastly, there are a few different epilogues but the 'main' one would be an epilogue which mirrors the start of the story (you'll know it when you see it). There are three possible ways to reach that. Even though I may consider it to be the true ending, it is not a typical happy ending.

If you don't like letters, extremely short stories or cliched moral lessons, don't read this. I found it when I was browsing through the old storygames I had created a long time ago. If I'm not mistaken, this was made for Mizal's Tiny 'Topias jam although I never really thought it was good enough to add to the thread. I don't think I'll publish this, but it's completed if anyone happens to browse my profile and wants to read it.

No problem!


Coauthor Wanted: Good with variables??? on 3/4/2021 9:04:39 PM

I would say that it is possible to begin with a large game, but only if you are very sure that you can handle it. Seeing how you are already not too motivated to devote large chunks of time to writing, it may be easier to start with a game where the sole focus is on the story rather than adding in extra complications like variables and items.

If you do want to implement a health system in the future, the usual way is to use variables (I think another member put a link for that earlier) and set it to how much health you want the reader to start with. Then under each link that causes damage to the reader's health, you can deduct some variable points. There's a setting in the variables part that allows you to bring the reader to a specific page once health falls below a certain number (I usually set it to 0).

As for the dream powers in Dreamtruder, they are items that can be found on certain pages and a lot of the links were item restricted so the dream powers could unlock different options. Besides that, you should also learn how to use items to find out how to do that. I recommend reading some articles in the Help and Info section to get a better understanding of how to use the site.


Is it annoying if I introduce myself like this? on 3/4/2021 9:03:21 PM

This is more entertaining to read than anything I could ever write. Also, it is ironic that writeyourstory's name tells the author to write their story when they don't feel like writing it.

I would most likely try to play the hero and stop the trolley but end up causing a fire which would kill everyone in the area. This would also result in hardly any survivors (including the CYS members who are in the middle of pushing the fat man onto the track/ deciding who to kill) and after I die, I would claim it was all part of a plan to cause as much chaos and destruction as possible.

Edit: I see my past self has already beaten me to it. Which part of the timeline did I mess up now?

Thanks, Mara! I'm glad you like it.

I actually made it with Canva. It was mainly just about finding pictures and layering them, then adding the text. I'm really glad you like it!

Ogre11 really lives up to his name. Did you deliberately post exactly 11 times on this thread?

At least you didn't mention the dreaded writing.

Congratulations to Malk for the well deserved win! Well done to everyone who was part of this - from what I have seen so far, this contest really provided a lot of high quality stories. Thank you Endmaster for running this; it was certainly great to participate in this contest.
