This is my entry to the Year's End Contest. My prompt consists of Create a fantasy or science fiction world from scratch. The story must include a map of the relevant locality.
In a world in which everyone has powers that the rest of the Galaxy considers sacred, heroes fight every year to death to become God and create their own planets ...
But that's not your case, you stand a humble space janitor cleaning up the arena day after day. Until something changes your life forever.
Would you go partying to space cruisers, bet on fighting pits or battle for your life against a psychotic clown? Will you create your own planet and become a god? or would you continue with your boring life?
Thanks to my proofreaders and Shadowdrake
The choice asks about Loom, same as The name Scumm bar are easter eggs, inspired by the Game Monkey Island.
My other attempt and last, for the 1,000 words contest with The theme Environment. In this case, you are a builder working in an illegal road on Amazonas; until something happens.
The Revenge of Turkey Loco
Kansas 50s a farm in the middle of nowhere. An experimental Turkey plots its revenge against the human who kills its mother.
Cave of Time vs Everything Else
on 1/28/2020 12:55:11 AM
I can't make a cave of time game, it doesn't make sense for me it is not how I plan the stories and how I feel my stories should be. I just don't understand how to make the branches so wildly different from each other. For me, that breaks cohesion, it is no longer one story with several outcomes; it is several stories with a shared beginning. That is not bad, There are masterpieces designed as a cave of time. However, I see my game as one story each choice and branches are like different possibilities in a multiverse that each player makes real or not in the base of choice. For me, there is not good endings, bad endings or real ones. All are part of the same story and same experience. Maybe it is because I starting first design a universe itself, and then the character story within that universe. So far, nobody has complained to me that I offered few choices, or that the choices don't matter.

There is a mentor-mentee program in the forum right now, I recommend you to apply for it. That way you will learn how to be a part of the forum and accept criticism this time. And even maybe stop being bad. Like everyone else here is a process of Polish and practice.
The whip of the Phoenix's sun My IS contest entry

Both. I didn't want to use the funeral, because that implies death. You don't die you respawn. Your genetical material is reborn and your memory is erased. But also I didn't find a better word that coffin, I was tempted to use casket to play with the closed casket term. However, I thought that most of youngsters wouldn't understand the term.

Thanks, @Ogre11 To my disclaimer the game was written in 10 days and has absolutely no proofreading. But it is very helpful the details you have pointed out. The game has been useful to me to notice that the horror genre is a genre I am terrible at and should not trying to make one again.

Hi, like nobody wants to be my mentor in the mentor program, I will have to use the whole community as a mentor. I have several pages done and I will like to have a volunteer to read it and give me feedback. This is the first page
The entire city congregates as every harvest day next to the great tower of fire. The light of the three moons shines for the last time before dawn; the time of the weekly ritual is approaching. After that, the orchestra and the choir start to play the ancient song in a slow and monotonous tempo, again and again, in an eternal loop.
Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
T'was blind but now I see
T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
Through many dangers, toils and snares
We have already come.
The coffin's procession commences floating with its anti-gravitational fields, while citizens watch the show bored, as every week the same spectacle has been happening since the dawn of times. most of the citizens simply navigate the holo-net checking out that their own Karma credits aren't dropping.
"You, however, are an important party in the ritual; your inert body is sleeping in one of the communal caskets. Your memory and brain begin to being expunged as your brain begin to disintegrate, soon The primordial energy of the Fire's tower will return your body two ashes, blood, dust and bones. A new you with your same DNA would respawn as it has happened to you through thousands of reincarnation circles ... Have you understood?" The weird voice sounds bored.
You confusingly think about the fact of you do not see who is talking with you. Is this a dream? "Do you talk to me? Who are you, what am I?"
"I have already explained it to you, I have another thousand to guide in my turn. Just think about who you were in your previous life and everything will be fine."
The 3 choices of background are Drug dealer, Defense attorney and corrupt taxman
Any feedback will be appreciated, same if I get any volunteers
First Page of a Superhero Game I Shouldn't Start
on 1/17/2020 8:17:14 PM
It is not badly written, But dunno it feels like it lacks something. Maybe the starting is too rushed I would prefer a slower more mysterious approach that directly starting talking with the demon and telling there is a lot of people who died. I personally would prefer starting in the middle of the attacks or something like that and Thomas having to figure out what is happening. But that's my personal taste.
What do you eat?

I am European and here are really habitual frozen vegetables and frozen fish and meat. It is not so frequent to freeze the fruit because Spain is one of the biggest fruit producers in the world. Fresh fruit is far cheaper than frozen. But at least in Spain, frozen products are not seeing as bad. Except for fast food meals.

It is really sad he was banned, you can't imagine how much people like him, natives with worse grammar than me, helping to improve my self-esteem. I know sounds cruel, but reading his works makes me feel better.

Thanks for the mention, even if I didn't make anything special compared with the others on the list. I hope still improving and in five years be able to have a commended story in sci-fi, my favourite genre. Constant work and effort is my way of working.
