So my goals on this site: create a story game that's actually ranked at least a 6, get a trophy, and win approval from my favorite contributor on this site. Granted I'll probably fail at these three things, but still.
I got the trophy! And a commendation from my favorite author! Only one more goal to go!
A short horror story where you're hazed on Halloween night. While others are trick-or-treating, you're involved in a fight for your life.

Left a review. If you want further proof, I've got the screenshot.
"This game is one of the first I ever read on CYS, and it's still one of my absolute favorites to this day. The protagonist's inner struggle between the Emperor he's been conditioned to serve since birth, and the increasing amount of evidence that everything he's ever been taught is false, was engrossing to read. Indeed, the character's thoughts and feelings as his mindset slowly shifts from the person he was raised to be to who he wants to become, is so detailed and fleshed out, that you can actually immerse yourself in that pain and self-doubt. Every moment in the game feels special and unique, and the surrounding characters and their motivations are so well-written that their death, treason, suffering, ect. hits you right in the gut. Even his enemies have reasoning for what they do, and the game does a good job of showing you their perspective, until you (and, of course, the protagonist) no longer know what to do. The game isn't some glorified rape and murder fantasy, it's a genuine work of art that deserves to be a best-selling novel, and the fact that we all get to enjoy it for absolutely free is just an extension of the love and consideration that EndMaster put into this masterpiece."

A state facility is essentially a hospital funded entirely by the state government. So instead of going to a hospital that's covered by my insurance, where I get smoke breaks, cable tv, and flavored water dispensers, I'll get sent somewhere that's basically prison for crazy people. And thank you!

Lots better actually. Got a job interview tomorrow and finally got the rights to see my child. I've been in and out of hospitals for the last few months, but I'm hoping to stay out now that they're threatening me with a state facility if I go in again.

Sorry, dude, I had to go into the hospital under suicide watch. Since I didn't get out until yesterday afternoon, I'm guessing I'm disqualified?

Last but not least, do we get to attack from land and sea at the same time?

Also do we get our generated income in addition to the $150 war funds? For example the main keep creates $50, and the shipyard generates $25, adding up to $75. So would we get that $75 in addition to the $150 war funds once we start our build phase?

Hey Berka why don't you compete? Or at least face whoever wins this for an extra xp reward?

Screw it, I'm in. Do we PM you now, or will you announce when the game starts?

So do we start the game with barracks and a shipyard? Or do we have to purchase one?

Where exactly does my character come into all this history? I definitely remember popping up a few times for brief moments, before disappearing back into the woodwork.
