The Dolls' Quest

Two sentient dolls who remember previous lives as a prince and princess in another universe, go on a perilous quest across the United States to learn more of their origins. My first storygame so any constructive criticism is welcome.

Update #3 on Mizal's most EPIC thread ever! on 7/16/2018 10:38:36 AM

So kind of like Game of Thrones where you have Fantasy that comes more out of character motivation than some sort of magical Mcguffin.  Although by Season 7 the show now more than ever seems like the Lord of the Rings.

Thank you, Ogre11. It took me long enough!

Thanks, Mizal. I figured out I could just copy the link and past it on my Facebook page. This certainly did take me a long time.

Just got through publishing my storygame, "The Dolls' Quest". Feel free to tear it apart and dissect it. Been working on this since early December of last year! As it's a first effort, criticisms are always welcome. Question: how do I post a link to my storygame on my Facebook page?


The Fighting Fantasy Series on 7/2/2018 11:07:54 AM

I have one of the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, but I haven't gotten around to playing it. Basically, I find all these paperbacks of gamebooks and Choose Your Own Adventure books and snatch them up. I did always like CYOA when I was a teenager back in the 80's, but I got really happy when I discovered TSR Hobbies Endless Quest books, since most of them were based on the Dungeons and Dragons game. One of my favorite series, though, were Joe Deavers' Lonewolf gamebooks. I was mostly happy about those because I could never organize a D&D game with my siblings, even though I'd shelled out the money for a D&D basic set around 1984. The lack of control in the gamebooks always annoyed me. I thought the best of all worlds would be a gamebook with the flexibility of the CYOA and Endless Quest books, but with the hit points, ability to collect items, and the random element of the Steve Jackson and Joe Deaver stuff.

Pamela Sargent wrote a Hard SF trilogy about the terraforming of Venus. I've only read the first one in the series (Venus of Dreams, 1986), but she had the colonists initially living in floating habitats in the upper atmosphere.

Nice additional background information and characterization. The style is brief and includes nice concrete imagery. Kind of like the way Robert E. Howard could give brief descriptions that never slowed down the narrative pace of his stories. Will we get any background information on the curse, though? Still want to send you my story sometime, although I'll need to retype it, unless I can upload the audio version I did in 2011.
