Howdy!


I've been active since 2020, the same year I discovered that the few Goosebumps CYOAs I read back in the day still had living virtual counterparts. It turns out they're really fun to read, and much more inviting to write than a solid, traditional book for an amateur like myself.


Other than playing storygames, I like to do digital drawings (which are now decent) and improve the site code. I hope to make a magnum opus here someday.

You miss the light/dark modes that make this site look reasonably modern, including for stories you're reading. And multiple saves if you do that sorta thing. Previewing posts. A good plaintext editor. Some other major things I forget. So mostly just your patience and vision as the site's old-school light mode slowly disintegrates your ability to see.

Hey Gryphon, welcome to the site. You can resize an image on any site that pops up if you google "image resize online".

That was an April Fool's joke! Ha ha...ha. In news completely unrelated to this revelation, I've changed the date to 4/1... (April Fool's again! Except this time, I was expecting it. Got in on 4/3.)

Guessing it'll happen tomorrow now since the site update request hasn't been seen yet.

Right after that important obscure bug about dates and duels that Peng brought up. Priorities!

The site'll be offline tonight at midnight PST (6 hours and some change) for about 10 minutes for some changes. Glad to see everyone's appreciating them!

I think you can tell well enough when people like a post.

I may or may not be actively working on stickying threads already...

Some people go for a full plot skeleton while others go for interesting characters, then develop around a plot they come up with in spurts along the way. There's really successful authors that do both. I find it easier to just come up with a premise and setting with characters, then let it evolve. Otherwise, I struggle with fleshing out the middle of the plot. Coming up with things as you go also works really well with CYOA-style writing. Hope that helps.

Site was offline for changes, it's back up.
