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

Ha ha, there's no way in bloody Hell that I'd ever bet a high amount of points again. Hurray for dignity!

Hopefully Ford won't commit suicide again...

Thanks for hosting this BZ. :)

Considering I've never been on your server, I hope that elliminates me from your erotica. :)

Though I disprove of writing your shippings anyway, just beware of underage characters. We have many users who could be under the age of consent in their geographic jurisdictions.

Free speech allows you say such things unless it directly leads to violence in the good ol' USA. I suppose you wouldn't understand considering your love of Mayo DingDong and Jojo Stalin. :)

No, nuking civillions is not something to be done in almost all scenarios. Plus, the fallout could effect our allies such as Japan and SK. Howwver, I'd probably support a suprise attack for humanitarian reasons. :)

First post ever on mobile... It only took me 1.2 years to figure out.

That's what I was afraid of... Dang.

If this is in the wrong section, then sorry; however, I believe that this's the right spot since I'm talking about ratings (and comments' threads are here as well).

How do these ratings work for calculations exactly? Higher point values are more influential and having account is more influential than a guest. What the numbers for that? A guest commenting on a storygame with ~20 ratings causes a ~.01 the rating is 1 rating off the average; however, I had a ~.3 shift from (I think) an infinite point member rate the storygame 2 off of the average. (I watch my newly posted storygames closely enough to know who rated my storygames as what most of the time which's why I' can throw out these numbers.) Is infinite its own category, or does the rating still use the user's original point value?

Also, how much weight exactly does a 5,000 point user have over a 100 point user (5 times, 2 times, et cetera)? Lastly, is this effect inelastic? For example, if a user had 5,000 points for a little while, rated one storygame, and then had the points taken down to realistic levels... would the storygame have the 5,000 points weighted into the score or the second level?

Lastly, why are some storygames so inelastic in their ratings? Specifically, this has been on a 5.98 for weeks despite the relatively low amount of ratings while mine tend to fluctuate more despite two having more ratings?

I feel as though only currently non-active members can answer this, but these questions have been bothering me for too long. I apologize for this odd, number-filled question conglomerate.

I've seen it fixed before with only nine of them, and it hasn't fixed itself after a dozen. I think it's ~24 hours after publishing. I may be wrong, but that's my thoughts here.
