If you want to know more about me, send me a PM. Anyway, I'm fairly nice but my writing abilities are less than superb. Meh, I may write something that's liked more than a 5/8 eventually.

Progress on storygame that'll hopefully more liked than a 5/8: a couple thousand words.

Please rate my storygames, especially Solstice, No Quarter, and Life as a Time Traveler. My goal is to eventually have one over 100 ratings. Thank you.

Life as a Time Traveler

Steve is a time traveler, but he is not a superhero.  He does not use his powers for battling evil or being evil.  In fact, he does not even know what to do with his gloomy and crumbling life.  Perhaps today things will be different.  Perhaps today his present and future will be saved by... quite a special person.

Authors' Note: The endings depend on Steve's previous decisions.  There is one special ending found half way through the game, one sad ending, two real endings that are found at the end, and the "true epilogue" that is the best ending.  (The best ending has Stephanie in it in case you are wondering.)


No Quarter

This is a fan fiction of Led Zeppelin's song "No Quarter".

It is also an entry for the New Frontier Contest.


Solstice

This is part of the School Based storygame contest.

This is Lawrence's final few days at Hawthorn School. Things become... memorable.

Thank you iavatus for being my beta-reader and At_Your_Throat for the cover art.

EDIT:
I fixed the scripting error. You can now receive 1,000 points by finding the ending shown to those who have the normally maximum score of 400. I also added your total score at the end of the game so that you don't have to post in order to see it.

The Carnival, Ginny, and I

This is the story of Ginny and Ethan's times at the carnival.  As the years pass, can Ginny and Ethan's friendship continue or will their paths no longer intertwine?  Will Ethan overcome his avid dislike of roller coasters?

Can their friendship bloom into something greater?

EDIT:
Okay, after viewing the comments, I too realized the massive error I had created in the original ending.  Thank you Briar Rose, Bucky, and Steve24833 for you comments.  I truly mean that.  In fact, I burst out laughing (at my story) when I read the comments--especially Briar Roses'.  Thank you.

Now, there are two endings.  The first is the  original (with a few minute changes), and the new one is much different from the other one.  (They also wrote to each other because this story took place before the internet became widely public.)

This is an entry for the Chaos Contest.Barn.jpg

 

A frozen winter can be akin to Hell
So listen to this story that I will tell
Crazies throw the world into Chaos today
There's no way for me to keep evil at bay

Crazies should give you fright
Especially their bite
While the men act like beasts
Wanting tomorrow's feasts

You are a weary traveler in a mysterious land.

Unfortunately procrastinating: posted in this thread.


Opinions on POV on 7/15/2017 7:01:29 PM

Well, I've written storygames here in the first person, but I also had one in the third person. From experience, third person is "easier" for me to use. It's unrestricted in the material I can give the reader, but first person gives a more personal yet limited take on the story.
I'd experiment a bit if I was you. See what pov gives you the best results in your writing. If you find that second person is hard and/or annoying to use (as in my case) then don't do it just because everyone else is. If you do have a significance amount of death scenes for the protagonist, however, you probably would want to refrain from constantly writing first person deaths unless you can make it read-out adequately (which is bloody hard for me which is why I avoid those in first person narration).


[Site] Clarity in Ratings & Publication Dates on 7/12/2017 6:10:32 PM

In your stated situation, I'd just add a paragraph of two to your storygame's description with an "Edit" in front of it. There'd be something like, "Thank you, Mizal, as well for your informative review. I fixed the problems you mentioned." ( <- I did that thing on my first storygame.)


What is a sport? (Again) on 7/11/2017 7:37:11 PM

I cannot comment on this since I literately have no clue as to what Minecraft really entails beyond a few things (since I've never played and hardly ever seen it played). I'm guessing it does not since there is no measurable way to "win" since it does not have the parameters set by the maker of the game due to the game's open world environment. Thus, if Minecraft is a sport, then life (as in living your actual life and not the game) is a sport.


What is a sport? (Again) on 7/11/2017 7:15:08 PM

I actually view that as a sport as well. Perchance, my views may be liberal as to the word's definition.


What is a sport? (Again) on 7/11/2017 7:07:43 PM

Bloody Hell, I can tell that this's a writing site when the members are trying to figure out what constitutes a "sport".

It's a competition where there is an attainable goal which is achieved through some format of a measured process which involved competition and the use of the abilities of the participants.

There. :)
That includes freakin' chess. Somebody should go make a chess storygame now and place "sport" as one of the categories to cement this as site policy. Probably Steve should since he's panzying out of our site competition.


The Return of -ME- on 7/11/2017 7:00:51 AM

Well, BZ is currently hosting a contest with one of the prizes being his trophy. Ford bet his account and lost during another one (causing him to now be Chanbot). There was also a thread that had 654 posts to it which I think made it the highest as of yet. (It was a selfie thread.) Based off of the five month mark, you're probably aware of the new commendation system... Oh, the tags of Sports and Superheroes have been added.

Also, welcome back I suppose. I barely recognize you. :)

I'm taking the first real vacation I had in 3 years with some old family friends of mine in Gatlinburg, TN. I am, in fact, socialising more than their oldest daughter (one of my best friends) who won't stop texting some dude named Sam and a girl. I haven't seen her in two years, so this's making me sad. :(

I disagree. My mediocrity is better than your mediocracy. :)

If you want to beat me, then you have to write an unnaturally good mediocre storygame.

It's hard to trust somebody who refrains from using things like periods or capitalization.
