corgi213, The Dramatist
My story writing focus is mainly on horror,adventure, and now apparently fantasy.
According to some, my profile description is a horrid mess! :)
"And if you want to write some very strange porn involving Steve, go ahead, I'm not gonna judge ... you weirdo." - Mayana
"God dammit, Corgi." - Steve
"The only problem with Corgi's story was the lack of branching for the most part.
Didn't mind it in general" -EndMaster
"You idiot, you moron, you complete imbecile"- Mizal
The Warlock, Redinor, has stolen the Sword of Light, the legendary blade that is given to the Phoenix Rider. The next Phoenix Rider, Aric Lightson, must retrieve it if he is to recieve his birthright and marry the princess of the Elvish Empire of Arcria Locroium, Aercaena.
I don't care if you listen to the comments and decide to allow them to influence your opinion on this storygame, I'm just trying to get this whole series done so that I can move on with my life and not worry about all the stupid little comments that everyone gives everything. Just... if you're willing to give this thing a shot, finish it.
The Demon Necromancer, Adwar, has retrieved the Sword of Shadows from the tower of Redinor. The world of Anaria cries out in anguish. Will Aric Lightson return to stop him, or will the Demons be allowed to complete their quest in letting the Darkness of the Void into the world?
This is more of a follow up story to "Anaria" rather than a game. Please do not be angry with me, I'm just trying to end this horrible chapter that I decided to waste my life on.
The land of Orcin, a place where all are free to live as they wish as long as they follow the laws of the council. Years of relative peace had ensued, making sure the orcs would live as strong and as free as they had always been.
The Mannate Empire, destined to consume everything on the horizon, sets its sights on the homeland of the orcs. Annexing one kingdom, one empire after the next, finally looks to orcin for resources, troops, and land to settle, as they prepare their dreaded march.
Nolazir, a simple orc, who lives off the land as he works his farm, unknowingly would be drawn into events to come. He would come to shape the world around him, and the future of Orcin.
Fight for honor, love, peace, and prosperity. Lead with a cruel fist, or a warm heart. Challenges and tribulations lay ahead for all.
Will you save your homeland and return it from the brink? Will you let the darkness within and without consume you? What becomes of you and the world, is up to you.
The next edition will come out in a few months, filled with more varied events between time jumps including, politics, monsters, and more! Also will be adding the rest of the real story and the side branches in as well.
Where to begin exactly? I'll start off with thanking Mizal, who helped me with some proof reading and structure at the start, and helping me figure out how to use variables. Also for always being willing to help with my writing, grammar, and developing characters all these years, and generally being a wonderful presence on this site :)
I would like to thank MoreCowbell for consistently proofreading and giving me feedback on my story throughout this long process. I appreciate all of your spell checking, helping keep the flow and pace, and general positivity and motivation during this whole project.
I would like to thank 3iguy for taking an interest in my story and beta reading it for me. As well as Ebon for his detailed and insightful responses to some of my threads early on.
I'd also like to thank Ogre, IAP for encouraging me and keeping me motivated during the hardest parts of the process (mostly the end point).
Also would like to thank EndMaster for letting me rip off his organization scheme for storygames.
I really couldn't have done this without you guys, and I owe a great part of finally finishing this to all of you and to CYS as a general whole.
I hope you all enjoy!
One guy on a quest...for magic crytals! Unfortunately this is the land of Cystia...and things almost never happen as expected.
What starts as a normal day turns into a mad quest for revenge, live the life of a dude turned into an evil....killer pie!
Will you find redemption? Or will you truly be evil? No one cares!
Twin Flames flicker and writhe, dancing around each other as they cast their glorious rays. One pale and the other dark, in a dance that has gone on for eternity.
Deep in the city of Kalamak, the Necromancer Nemus stands, surrounded by a host of undead guards as he torments the once proud people of the city. The city patrolled by the beasts and minions of the vampire lord, Yorn. Underneath the city lies an evil of unimaginable horror, this evil rests where no mortal shall ever live.
In the darkest of flames, a hope sparks, a pale flame may bring a new day to the people of Kalamak.
Enter the city, find the Order of Hunters, stop Nemus. You alone can do this, do not fail as others have, stop the mad man before it is too late.
My entry for Mizal's Lone Hero Contest.
In the wild, beastly lands of Velis Brum, many are prey to the whims and cruelty of men and monster alike.
A small village resides in the caves Manchor Vanit, it is here you have been born. Taught to remain close to the caves all of your life, you never caught a glimpse of what was beyond the mountains, and when you did it was often cruel and unsettling.
Your mostly quiet existence would end when Baglich would come to take your homeland, with their scum and barbarian fiends.
Gather family, allies, old foes, and create an empire suitable to standing up to this terror of the land.
A dispute, a broken promise. The envy of one will break a kingdom.
The half man, half dragon sorcerer Tarragon threatens your king, your home, your very way of life.
How far will you go to make sure justice is brought to this foul madman?
Chose between to very different characters to embark on this epic quest, slay the dragon, save the princess, and restore honor to your kingdom.
Evil Grannies Galore!
Come, rest your weary feet.
Sit by the campfire, warm those hands. You must be tired.
Oh, you like stories do you?
Hmm, here's a story for you. One that goes way back, to a time when the night ruled, and the howling of beasts would make any man tremble. Relax, it's going to be a long one.
An orc named Tumble, young, wild, and free.
Life is great in a village nestled in between the mountains, the birth place of the great Orc race. But for the past century a series of brutal crusades have left them divided and broken.
The Mannate Empire threatens to swallow them whole, just as it has done with everyone else in its path. But then one day an even bigger threat to the land rises out of the fires of fate, undeterred by the ravages of time.
They call him Scourge. His forces threaten the very land, and all of life as it stands now.
Will Tumble play the role fate has dealt him and stop the evil Scourge?
Or will he abandon the world before him and find his own way?
An exercise in seeing how fast I can crank one of these out.

Cave of Time is dope as heck, but I'm not quite used to writing it. Most of my stories seem to be a bit more linear and use the bottleneck and gauntlet method and such, with most side branches being the same way.
I have like, possibly one true Cave of Time style storygame planned for...some point in time.
Altho I think I will like writing large branches that reconnect later on eith smaller choices and quick branchings in between
Also to avoid the plague of writing similar things multiple times.

Politics in Worldbuilding: Poll on 1/19/2020 5:29:38 PM
Ah, politics, or perhaps AHHHHH politics.
Anyways what level of importance does politics play in worldbuilding for a story for you? Do you go into it heavily, minimally, keep it lurking in the background but still prevalent? Somehwere in between.
Has anyone here come up with any interesting political systems for the factions in their stories?
MRROOOW! *hiss* *spit* on 1/15/2020 8:56:31 PM
We've actually recently had quite a few members coming out of the blue showing alot of gumption when it comes to writing awesome storygames.
The only difference is you shit where you eat.
Minimum amount of needed decisions in a story? on 1/14/2020 11:18:27 AM
While there isnt really a minimum, its a good idea to have a choice every two or three pages. You can even flavor this with links to an optional worldbuilding page (like Necromancer) that cuts back to a previous page. A similar thing can be done with dialogue options for having the protagonist learn about the other characters.
Just dont over saturate your story with choices like this otherwise the comments would be flooded with "FAKE CHOICES 1/8"
Unless your storygame is cave of time style, then every choice.is a real one.
Protectors of Redlion - New Story on 1/10/2020 11:34:40 AM
Well, it is called PROTECTORS of Redilion
Although yes, there probably should be some tension between the two factions. It's pretty common for two groups to have common goals and still have conflict over means, idealogy, etc.

That last line of dialogue was gold lol
As was the last little paragraph
