Chaos Contest

The world is not right. Pandemonium, disorder, and bedlam plague the story universe. Figurative darkness has fallen and anarchy reigns. Where do we go from here?

Format: CYOA

Deadline: May 1st at 12:01 A.M. Eastern Time



This may be the last contest I host before passing the torch off to someone else, or otherwise just dousing it into the ground. Though I am open to running one more after this one if I'm impressed by the top stories and turnout. With over a month and a half to write the story, and a wide open theme, I'm expecting some high quality material.



Entry Requirements & Prizes:

You must formally declare intent to enter the contest in this thread, as there is a point entry fee. Hopefully, this will motivate people to finish and reward those who honor their commitments

People can choose to enter the contest for 25, 50, 75, 100, or 125 points. Upon entering, those points will be deducted from your total. Upon submitting a contest story which meets minimum contest standards, you will get either 30, 60, 90, 120, or 150 points back (depending on how much they entered for). And then additionally 100 for winning the contest and a featured story if it's a CYOA and good enough to merit featuring.

If you do not submit a contest story which meets minimum contest standards by the deadline, you will not receive any rewards or points back.

To eliminate any possible confusion, the first number is your entry fee, and the second would be your reward. And this is just for submitting an acceptable entry. The winner will receive another 100 points on top of their initial reward.

25 -> 30

50 -> 60

75 -> 90

100 -> 120

125 -> 150

Recap: Stories will not be valid entries unless the site member formally announces his or her intent to enter the contest in this thread with the amount of points he or she wishes to stake.

* See EndMaster for rules regarding your service to him if your entry sends you into negative points.

* Stories that cannot meet minimum site standards count the same as a non entry and get SHAME.

* One entry per site member. No alternate accounts.



Judging:

The judging panel will consist of moderators/administrators and selected highly esteemed community members that do not wish to enter.

Now this is what I call a contest. My style. I'm in for 100 points.

Chaos Contest

Would a non-fiction Modern Adventure setting wherein chaos and anarchy is one of the (semi-player determinant) endings be acceptable? If so, I'm putting 125 on the table.

*Quickly checks and confirms he does indeed have 125 this time round*

Chaos Contest

one month ago
No. Chaos is the default starting point. Where it goes from there is writer & player determinant.

Chaos Contest

one month ago
Ah. Alright, will take a call on joining in this after I finish my current work then.

Chaos Contest

one month ago
Just to be clear, when we mean chaos, we're talking more than first month Trump administration levels, right? Or would that qualify as Chaos? (Not intentionally being political here, just need to give a contextual example of chaos in a modern adventure/political setting)

Chaos Contest

one month ago
Closer to the level of raining fire or Suzy splittin' the kitten before the bombs drop.

Chaos Contest

Alright, thanks. Holding back on my contest entry for now, will come back to this in a few weeks.

Chaos Contest

Does the "chaos" have to be anarchy? I am thinking of historical fiction. :/

Chaos Contest

one month ago
No, it's not pigeonholed to absolute anarchy.

Chaos Contest

Oh my gosh, this contest theme sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun! I would like to enter for 125 points. Thank you! 

Chaos Contest

in 125

...literally a fording contest...

Chaos Contest

one month ago

What a coincidental coincidence! I am currently motivated to write a story about what you guys call chaos so... I would like to enter for 100 points. I got a month and a  half to go so I'm pretty sure I can complete the story in time! 

Chaos Contest

Count me in for 125!

Chaos Contest

Now this is a contest! I'll definitely be joining.

Chaos Contest

So, you'll be joining for 125 then?

Chaos Contest

No Mercy eh?

Chaos Contest

In in full throttle, here's my 125!

Chaos Contest

I'd like to join for 125 points, please.

Chaos Contest

It seems Endmaster's Grand Scheme is working...

Chaos Contest

one month ago

I'm in for 125 points, which will put me in debt for 74 points. 

Chaos Contest

one month ago
That's a lot of confidence, End will be glad to see it.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

If I remember correctly, going in debt means you actually have to win the contest to get your points back. 

Chaos Contest

one month ago
And if he doesn't win, he doesn't get the participation booster (no 150 for the 125 wagered). Basically it's all downside with an extremely low chance of upside. Would have been wiser to wager only what they had, or rated things to get to 125 beforehand.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Downhill? But I'll be gaining 125 points after I win this contest.

Lol, for real though, maybe I should've looked at the repercussions of betting that much, but I kind of just figured 'Hey, why not?'

Chaos Contest

one month ago
No, re-read my post. You go below water level, and you get nothing back for participating. It's not -125 offset by +150 later, it's pure -125 +0 later - UNLESS you win, and we already have 9 applicants including a semi-insane bet from Bannerlord

Chaos Contest

one month ago

To be fair, he did say he was going to get those points back after winning the contest.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

* See EndMaster for rules regarding your service to him if your entry sends you into negative points.

Rules start becoming more chaotic when you start going into debt and/or outside Bucky's guidelines.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

And uhh... what does that entail?

Chaos Contest

one month ago

For you? Nothing really. You just don't get your points back even if you submit a story since you went into debt. If you win the contest, you'll get the normal reward of course.

Then again if you're really feeling like a gambler, you could take the road that jep, Banner and Ford have taken.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

I meant net gain: 150 from wager if I win + 100 from winning = 250 - 125 points wagered = 125 gain. And yeah, I was half-joking because I don't expect to win.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

He might. He managed to submit something at the very last minute for the last contest. He didn't win, but he got out of the SHAME pit at least.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Do edgelord contest entries count for getting non-submitters out of the pit of shame, or do I actually have to do something this month?

Chaos Contest

one month ago

The Edgelord contest got Digit, Flamenod and Ben the Bunny Fucker out of the pit of SHAME. You weren't in the pit though.

 Unless you mean, does your edgelord story give you a pass if you join this contest and then don't submit something.

The answer to that would be no. Especially since your story got disqualified by most of the judges for being 22 pages long in a SHORT story contest and/or not actually posted in the thread anyway. Lol.

Chaos Contest

one month ago
I'm fine with the rest, but following your normal train of thought, what if Sent really believes that in the grand scheme of things, 22 pages IS short?

Chaos Contest

one month ago

I didn't actually disqualify him, I just tossed him in the automatic loser pile since he didn't post his story in the actual thread. Though if he had done that, it probably would have gotten deleted anyway for stretching out the page, so yeah he was doomed from the start with that story.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Oh, no, I was in the pit, since I failed to submit a story in October. Because CYS admins are corrupt favoritist tyrants, Mason got put on the official wall of shame without me. Also, fuck TL;DRs! H.P. Lovecraft's short stories were like 30 pages!

Chaos Contest

one month ago

We officially didn't start throwing people in a SHAME pit until December since that's when I first made a proper thread about it.

So you managed to avoid ongoing SHAME due to us not having dug the pit yet and just pelting you for a day with rotten food.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Dammit! All that flagellation for nothing!

Chaos Contest

one month ago

I'd like to enter, still thinking about how many points I should wage considering I'm already in the negatives.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Go all out, since you're already screwed :P

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Yep, go big or go fuck yourself.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

I'll bet 500 of my non-existent points for no other benefit.

Chaos Contest

Edit Lock. We have a glory seeker, that or a new account seeker

Chaos Contest

It's wet and dark down here...smells worse than lil bean's clam-infested privates.

Chaos Contest

It's okay. You'll have plenty of people to join you soon..

Chaos Contest

one month ago

So it's basically exactly like L'il bean's privates.

Chaos Contest

one month ago
Thanks for noticing my privates <3

Chaos Contest

one month ago

I'd like to include another 1,000 points to add to my 125 point bet, please. In addition, I don't want an additional reward.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

As you know there can only be ONE to achieve all the glory.

So basically Banner and jep are now also playing a mini-game of who can write a better story than the other.

Of course someone else could join in.

Chaos Contest

one month ago
Endmaster only has to give it a little push....after that it is a downward spiral of death and decay...the bloodcurdling screams of the victims....

Chaos Contest

one month ago
Which begs the question, is it that End is that effective, or is it that everyone was standing around the ledge, waiting for the slightest push?

E: Also, time to break out the coolers to see this. 1625 glory points > Is it a winner take all pot or how does winning work?

Chaos Contest

one month ago
They get back their bet points and nothing else, no rewards, not even for winning. Glory at its best.

Chaos Contest

one month ago
Oh, I thought it was a betting pot where all bet contestants pooled. So, the moment a second person seeks glory, someone's going home in (online) bruises.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Actually I never said that wasn't going to happen.

Arguably jep has way less to lose no matter what happens since he was already in the hole to begin with. Banner actually has the most to lose since he just insanely bet 1125 points without thinking about the potential consequences. He even asked for no further reward.

However Banner could still actually win more than just his points back just for being so risk taking while also trying to appear humble...or maybe he won't and he'll only get his points back if he loses against jep, or only some of them back, or even get nothing back.

By the same token Jep could potentially write something so impressive that he gets himself out of debt completely, or maybe he won't and the same goes for him.

The point is, only one of them is going to get anything potentially extra, if at all.

Banner and jep will just have to do their best and see what happens.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Dear Tzeentch, the chaos lords signed off on that speech and its double negatives, didn't they? You confirmed nothing outright, just teased possibilities everywhere. Ultimately all this did was increase the net chaos in the system.

Well played.

What happens if either of them adds on a co-author or a third glory seeker enters the fray? (Yes, chaos happens, the specifics please)

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Well Ford is subject to all the same "rules" as jep and Banner now.

As for one of them adding a co-author, Bucky just said no co-authors, so that's that now.

Chaos Contest

one month ago
Rule 1: Never read the rules.

I have no idea what the special rules are (not like I'd understand them anyways; they look confusing at a glance). All I'm doing is betting points and winning a contest :P

Chaos Contest

The Spooky Story co-author contest from October is still a vivid reminder of how CYS is not a site of productive teamwork ^_^

Chaos Contest

Wait, since when was a game part of glory-seeking? I thought it was just betting more points than what is specified in the OP.

Chaos Contest

I'll go for glory. Put me in for 2000 total.

Also, is the person betting points allowed to have a coauthor? (I think End mentioned this earlier?) If so, does the coauthor have to bet points as well?

Chaos Contest

No co-authors.

I'll be putting my Revolutionary War thing aside for now as I have plenty of time to actually shape that but I'll be trying to write a "quick" story for this. I bet 50 points as my sacrifice.

Hmm tempted by this one and have ideas, will decide in a couple of days whether I can or not

Chaos Contest

So long as they aren't co-authored.

Chaos Contest

I'll give this a shot! I'm hoping to get back into writing storygames, I've been on this site for a while but haven't actually finished anything... 

I'll do 125 points to serve as proper motivation.

Chaos Contest

Back from the dead real quick. Put me down for all I got. Thanks.

Chaos Contest

Shit not again

Chaos Contest

one month ago

He only bet 105 and didn't even go into debt, so he'll actually get everything back as long as he submits something.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

I'm rather offended that I, of all people, have been deemed a slave.

Can we change that to prisoner or something?

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Nope, we've got a chaos theme going. Slaves, damned, lost, and all that. Mr.M is a wannabe bitch since he STILL hasn't told us how many points he's betting.

Probably should change the "Chaos Seekers" to "The Chosen" or something, but then again one of them won't actually be the chosen one until they win, assuming one of them does.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Is there anyway I could join the Chaos Seekers?

Chaos Contest

one month ago

I'm pretty sure you have to bet an insane amount of points.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Can I just earn a bunch of points so that I can bet them all?

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Chaos Seekers have to bet at least 500. Jep has already set the minimum bet by being the first.

So you COULD go boringly rate a bunch of stories in an attempt to raise the amount of points without going into debt, OR you could be a TRUE Chaos Seeker and just bet 500 right now.

Chaos Contest

one month ago
or bet 2000 causing me to bet the last 700 I have in order to stay ahead.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Don't tempt me...

Chaos Contest

one month ago

So will you be betting 2000?

Chaos Contest

one month ago
ho don't do this. you'll make me start on that story :L

Chaos Contest

one month ago

I'll join this contest for 25 points.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

This seems pretty fun but I'm not doing it.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Now you've lost your soul to End. There's no point in posting about not doing it; you might as well not post at all.

Chaos Contest

one month ago
How is everyone doing so far?

Chaos Contest

one month ago

I've made zero progress this entire week (midterms/finals), so I'm determined to get at least 5,000 words in by the end of Saturday. :/ Hopefully, I'll get to 17,000 total words, though I doubt it (I write very slowly...). So far, my characters are still trying to figure things out after arriving at a refugee camp. I'm having trouble finding a way to incorporate "chaos".

I'm doing a historical fiction piece, and the whole idea of the event is chaos, but I'm not sure how I could get the characters to experience it. The refugee camps seem pretty boring, so I'll have to make them much more bustling and whatnot. When the characters get into the ruined city is when chaos can really be showcased, and certain paths may lead to very dark places, but that's pretty much the extent of it.

Earlier, you said "chaos" had to be the initial point of the story, but I started with a few scenes to set up a back story and stuff. Hopefully, that's okay. :/

Chaos Contest

one month ago

I have an idea for you. So while your characters are at refugee camp there could be another group at the refugee camp also that surprise attack them while they are sleeping.

Chaos Contest

one month ago

Wut. That's unnecessary. There's no point of a surprise attack. >~> You don't even know what kinda story it is.

Chaos Contest

Chaos Contest

You're stuck at 14,000 words because you procrastinate too much?

Cute. I see a few of you've gotten quite bold with your bets. Wibbons, takin' up the whole ban-bet, eh? Ford, stepping up to the plate, and ooh, you gotta win to keep your account? That takes a big amount of guts and a small amount of brain. So, I guess all you fellas are going we-haw on the chaos train with no conductor and no rails laid on the track. Fun.

Now, let's not forget your Uncle T-Count. No one started all that shit before I did. But no you kiddos are up to bigger and better things with your fancy ass UNDIVIDED-ULTIMATE-CHAOS-ARMAGGEDDON-SEEKER titles and all that. Certainly, more mad than little 'ol me...

GUESS AGAIN, BITCHES

You'd thought I'd take this all LYING DOWN?! DO YOU KNOW WHO I FUCKING AM? I'M NOT YOUR GARDEN-VARIETY CRAZY WITH YOUR SECOND RATE KNOCKOFF MADNESS. I AM FUCKING T-COUNT, COUNT FENRIR, YOU LOUSY GITS!!! SO HERE I AM TO MAKE THINGS FREAKIN' RIGHT -- A REAL CHALLENGE NOT FOR FUCKING BANDWAGONS, OR YOU WANNABE BITCHES. I'M TALKING A REAL MAN-ASS CHALLENGE FOR 

GLADIATORS

HERE'S HOW THIS GLADIATOR CHALLENGE IS GONNA WORK:

ANYONE WHO WANTS TO BET THEIR ACCOUNT IS IN. ANYONE WHO ALREADY DID SO IS ALREADY IN. ANYONE WHO REPLIES TO THIS POST IS IN.

Same rules still apply. If Wibbons doesn't hand her story in by the contest's deadline, she's booked. If I don't hand my shit in by my extended deadline, I'm banned. Ford realizes the hopelessness of his situation and decides to spam the site with pics of his half-inch dick, he's banned. But here's the thing: Handing in something and meeting your requirements doesn't save shit. That's only half the game; you're still walking a tightrope over bloody-damn, throat-cutting, ass-burning Hell. These GLADIATORS who have decided to bet their account are in a mini-contest of their own( as well as the main one ). They'll still be ranked as usual, but only -- and I mean ONLY -- the author of the best story out of the gladiator pit can keep his account. All come in, one comes out.

 

Still wanna bet risky, Chaos Attention Seekers?

 

To add to that, when those pathetic low-value losers shit themselves into oblivion and try to climb back out with an alt, they'll suffer the mark of the Gladiator: 100 points down the hole, the instant they're identified. And to add to that, they'll be permanently placed in the GLADIATOR Pit of SHAME.

To sum up, the ones who chose/ will choose to bet their accounts, are, while in addition in a competition with everyone else, are pit to compete with each other. Only one of this group of people can survive.

@EndMaster , my Dark Liege. I eagerly request your morbid presence and infinite authority to accept these conditions, make these demands official, and begin the path of the true CHAOS SEEKERS, the Gladiators. I don my helmet with pride, madness, and vigor and begin my trail. As for the rest of you pussies.

@WouldntItBeBanned @WouldntItBeNice

@ Ford

GO TIME'S NOW. THIS IS REAL CHAOS.

It hasn't been approved, so anything is void. There was no "joining". You can try finding every little intricacy/loophole, but that's that - plain and simple.

(This is not a reply to that post you stated as being the one where users sighed into the contest, thus you can not count this post as me signing up.) T-Count, you do not possess the power to force me into doing anything, nor you you posses the mental capabilities to convince me to join this mini-contest. While Ford's choice was a tragedy (RIP Ford), I will not join a contest that has a guaranteed result of having you banned.

Furthermore, if anybody does join the contest (or accidentally reply to that post up there), I would not want to be responsible for having that individual banned or being banned due to the capabilities of that user. If I fail, I want it to be my responsibility alone. If nobody else joins the contest and I did join due to some unfathomable reason, then I would sigh for approximately half a second due to your banning before continuing on with my life which is a half of a second that I have no desire to waste.

The only good news is that you provided a loophole for @Ford to exploit. He never mentioned which contest he had to win, thus when he wins your gladiator contest (since there would be only two participants) he would not be banned.

A'ight bitches, c'mere a sec

25 days ago

According to my rules, you're already signed up!

1) It doesn't have a guaranteed result of you getting banned. All you gotta do is outdo me and Ford. You really think that's hard?

2) I think you're failing to understand me. Those terms only apply to the ones who bet their account. I'm not stopping anyone from joining. I'm just making a proposition for the more chaotic members of the site.

3) Gladiator and Chaos contest are the same. Gladiator is just subset of Chaos. Ford's screwed one way or another (unless he actually wins the chaos contest) nah he's just plain screwed.

4.) "nor you you posses the mental capabilities" You calling me stupid? Cause if you are, you're right.

e: Now don't be dull, why bet your account if there's nothing to risk? It's pointless! You could just hand in anything and be done. Be a real risktaker and take the Gladiator challenge.

A'ight bitches, c'mere a sec

Do you know how much this account means to me? The people here? Do you know how little freedom I get outside of this site? Just stop this. It's not insanity anymore—it's ridiculous.

On the contrary, it's the purest form of insanity there is!

It's actually 2 inches when you round up

Chaos Contest

25 days ago

Okay first of all, I already have my own plans for everyone that’s making the crazy chaos bets. (Risking bannings or not)

Second of all, you’re assuming I wasn’t already going to penalize anyone making an alt after they got banned. And in Ford’s case, he’s probably just going to use his chanbot account anyway. (Or some other account he made a long time ago)

Third, there’s no need for whatever it is your proposing because it already exists. Ford already did the highest bet possible that he’ll be banned if he doesn’t win.

Just bet that you’ll be banned if you don’t win either, then it’ll be a mini “gladiator match”

If you can convince everyone else to do that, then Ta Dah! You’ll have your armageddon gladiator contest or whatever.

Really, you need to bet more points anyway, because as it stands, you’re basically still in the “slave” section. The only reason why you’re unique is due to the ban bet. However, you’ll only be getting a small bonus if you turn something in.

So far, jep, beta, Banner, Wibbons, and Ford are all going to gain a shitload of points if they actually win.

Of course there can be only one, but they all knew the risks.

Fourth, I didn’t even bother reading all that shit and I’m doing what I want anyway. Lol.

Apr 20 deadline - Check

Betting as much pts as Ford is (or as much as you'll allow) - Check

Have to win against Ford and all other competitors to save account - Check

Chaos Contest

17 days ago

Certified noob here. Got a few questions:

1-Theme: Would being in the middle of a war count as chaos? What if the story starts just on the edge of chaos, and by the first chapter you're thoroughly engulfed in it? What if the world is beginning to be overwhelmed by chaos but the protagonist isn't aware of it when the story begins?

2-Length: How short is a "short story" here? I think I read 22 pages as being worthy of disqualification. What if each of your major story lines is say, 10-15 pages? While one play through might be ten pages, the total game might be 40 pages long, for example (if there are enough possible plot directions and and enough of them are at least a few pages long).

3- If Ford loses and is banned, instead of just banning him immediately, can there be like a three day delay so an execution thread for Ford can be made were other posters can verbally tar and feather him first? You know, make him a thread and schedule his banishment for a specific time three days after? Make him do his walk of atonment, figuratively naked through the streets while everyone yells SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! whilst ringing a bell?

Chaos Contest

17 days ago

I’ll just answer the 3rd and Bucky if he so desires can answer the first 2.

Ford has already been getting the tar and feather treatment since he joined, so there really isn’t any need to wait around to ban him once it’s confirmed that he's lost.

Besides all that, we already will have a new SHAME thread where people can do that.

Chaos Contest

1) Read the thread. This question was already answered.

* Chaos is the default starting point. Where it goes from there is writer & player determinant.
* Closer to the level of raining fire or Suzy splittin' the kitten before the bombs drop.

2) This isn't a short story contest, but a short story is typically professionally considered between 3,000 and 8,000 words.

Chaos Contest

16 days ago

I have chaos as sort of an inciting moment, but not at the very beginning.

Chaos Contest

16 days ago

EDIT- Never mind I figured a way out of this conundrum. I could just write a prologue that starts in true chaos and go from there. Hell, it could be something that happens 2000 years before the main events of the story, since after all you said it just has to be the starting point. That way there is zero question about whether or not the starting point is chaotic.




Thanks for the answer, but here's my confusion with that (btw I did read the thread but I'm the type of person who can see the color black on a blank white piece of paper)

*see tl/dr at the bottom if you're feeling lazy or you are busy

Say I'm ISIS and I'm in my cave, but I know NATO has dispatched missile carrying jets to my location. Is my situation immediately chaotic? No, we have to wait a few minutes. Is the chaos already began and inevitably on its way? Absolutely. Are we emotionally in chaos from the very first second the invasive ghost of a reader/watcher steps behind the fourth wall to observe? Absolutely. Either our emotions are "balls to the walls high strung" chaotic or they're presently disassociating to escape the emotional chaos in the back of our minds. For the latter case, the protagonist might be fixating on the asymmetrical point of an old wooden pencil on the desk, and notice the shavings from the sharpener have started to scatter from the ambient air flow. But is that ISIS member really calm? Nope. It's just a coping mechanism to deal with the chaos lurking behind the curtain of his consciousness.

Moreover, an author could choose to describe a fairly chaotic situation in the most mundane and calm fashion you can imagine. E.g., "They say time slows down before you die. He caught a pretty pink glint of light from the metal. It reminded him of inside of the Cadbury eggs he used to eat on Easter. Somewhere in the back of his mind he knew he should be afraid, even terrified. But all he could think about was that delicious pink filling as the rotating projectile inched its way closer at supersonic speeds. Is everyone this distracted at the moment of death? Does time always slow down this much? At this point he didn't care anymore. Maybe the next life he'll eat more chocolate covered candy eggs. The bullet struck, rending and searing his flesh before lodging itself into his spine. Thoughts of Easter vanished like a pile of ash whisked away in the wind."

^^ Chaotic situation, very much NOT a chaotic description.

So, to sum this up, if I use a loose definition (and that seems to be acceptable based on this thread and your recent answer), there are many situations I could argue are chaotic in some way. But just because I can make that argument doesn't mean I won't get thrown into the pit of shame for it.

Thence came my trepidation and the "stupid" question.




*tl/dr: a clever writer could make a chaotic situation become mundane or make a mundane situation become chaotic.

Prologues don't count as a workaround. Chapter one must be chaos. This topic would be disqualified.

Edit: As several people have PM'd me this week...

Any attempts to circumvent the spirit of the contest theme will be disqualified. These are stories about what happens when the world starts out in a state of absolute shit. Not stories about how the world came to be shit or how the world was shit long ago but now is sumshine and rainbows until new stuff happens.

Actually, MinnieKing, I could turn in a story today if I wanted, as I've wrapped up the narrative of one portion of it. However I would rather make something more complete, so I'll be taking all of the remaining days. Hopefully I'll have time to photoshop some pictures too. But anyway my last post is something of an official entry, I hope.

Chaos Contest

12 days ago

I'm not really sure of the mechanics, but I see no reason not to. I'm about one third finished, and if I'm at the last day I'll simply leave off some stuff I wanted to put in and wrap the story up. That said, I have very few points. But I'll bet whatever I can afford. I seem to have 53 points right now, but I'd like to enter the next contest, too. Would 25 points be a reasonable bet or would that put me in some shameful category?

If so then count me in for 25.

Man, even with mostly binary choices the permutations can add up quickly. I'd say I'm halfway through, depending on how far I want the endings that fall short of the ending to go.

Every time I think I'm ready to wrap up a tendril of the story, it occurs to me that in the particular situation the character could reasonably be presented with yet another choice, and so I have to keep extending the narrative path. Sheesh this is not easy to do.

I was actually wondering, does the whole 'making an alt after you get banned earns you an auto-ban' rule apply here? You know, when talking about raising stakes and all that. 

Chaos Contest

That will be the fun thing for them to discover.

Will they get they banned forever? Will they just get docked points with the new alt? Will they keep getting banned until enough time has passed? They'll get to find out when the time comes.

I'm on my third different storygame due to the lack of a "chaotic" feel. Fortunately, this one is turning out quite fine. I used this when planning out my story. If the perspective of your setting and plot is without any clear order and with a fair dosage of confusion, then you should be fine. To simplify, your story qualifies based off of what I've seen in my opinion.

Chaos Contest

Unfortunately, they are most likely lost to some hypothetical force of destruction and chaos, perpetually trapped in a hellish limbo for all eternity. But, as a peasant is disposable to a lord at best, points are disposable to a citizen of CYS at best.

Chaos Contest

3 days ago

That's not a very apt comparison. A peasant is expendable. 125? that's 50% of your land efficiency and border defense at least.

Chaos Contest

2 days ago

I wouldn't say a single point is worth a single peasant. Sure, a peasant is uneducated, not of gentle birth, and considered only slightly better than serfs, thus landing them at the very bottom of the social hierarchy triangle, but what can points really do? Not much. I'd say about... 300 points would be worth a single peasant? Maybe 400? Maybe 500, if we want to be generous. As such, I would only be losing roughly 3-2 peasants, as I have betted 1125 points; a medieval village is about 50 in total population, so I would only be losing 4% or 6% of my land efficiency and border defense.

Chaos Contest

Unrelated: I like Battlemage's gusto

Chaos Contest

2 days ago

Alright, alright. Speaking of Battlemage, I kinda like his meta-story idea...

Chaos Contest

2 days ago

I mean, point power is really measured in trophies and rating weight. That's 3 peasants for the marks of achievement you'd lose, and an additional 3 for your story rating capabilities. You've lost 6 business owners and land-micromanagers, this will cause a serious overall defect in your economy and food production, and leave a denting portion of serfs twice as vulnerable to raiders and knights while there is no one to directly lead or speak for them. This is the kind of loss that keeps on losing. This is the kind of dent that builds up into what we in the business call "Ripe for Invasion".

Chaos Contest

2 days ago

I think you severely overestimate the value of a mere peasant. You say that they are business owners, but that is false; most do not own land, and the land that is owned by the ones that do actually belongs to the lord. You say they are land micro-managers, when they are just farmers; nothing more, nothing less. I also don't believe they hold any power or responsibility over serfs. Also, if I was sacrificing my peasants, I would pick the ones that don't hold land or contribute significantly to the economy; leaving out these "business owners" and "land micro-managers" you speak of, if we assume they exist among peasant villages. Not to mention I hold only 2 trophies; not 3.

Chaos Contest

2 days ago

Serfs are the farmers, peasants are free men, meaning they have to do something for their liege in order to get by or they have no place and would just as soon be bandits. A good deal of them did this by either performing business duties in cities or acting as official over the villages serfs were bound to. You can't pick and choose which peasants are taken from you, just the same way that you can't pick and choose which points are taken from you. An arbitrary set amount is taken from your total, and since they all contribute the same, your losses will be the same no matter what. 1125 points is 3 trophies' worth of points, the 100, the 500, and the 1000.

Chaos Contest

2 days ago

I guess I can agree with you there. No, townsman would preform business duties in towns, peasants had no place there because they didn't have the proper education. A lord would assign a trusted associate rather than a random peasant to act as an official, like a chamberlain for example. Not too much of a stretch to assume it would be different for peasants; points have no individuality, while peasants do. Ah, but they don't; there's different classes of peasants, and it would be wise to choose the lowest class to sacrifice. Ah, understood.

Chaos Contest

Remember the goal for most isn't necessarily to win (except for those who made that bet), but to write a solid story by the deadline. It's easy to get caught up in trying to make something as good as possible, to the point that you never complete it. 

It's better to publish something average and live up to your obligation, than to aim for perfection and complete nothing at all. Normally storygames have no deadline and it's fine to take the time you need to finish. But a contest you've entered has a set timetable, and giving up points to enter is a commitment saying you'll do it.

Points are arbitrary and don't mean anything in the grand scheme of life, but the ability to stand by your word and do what you say you'll do is a valuable skill both online and offline. That's why I encourage people to not back out after already entering.

I'm confident that most here can write a solid story that meets the minimum site requires, even over this last weekend from scratch. 3.5K words = a 4/8 story length and I've seen some really decent shorter CYOA stories here. 

Chaos Contest

Someone give this bastard a commendation.

Chaos Contest

2 days ago
If this were a normal forum where one could quote things I would quote this. Anything around a 3/8 length and 4/8 rating is perfectly respectable, and I'd agree that most of the forum regulars are capable of knocking something like that out in a weekend if they put their minds to it. Yes, even the ones I despise. Yes, even you, the person reading this, the one I despise the most.

Sad to see all this back pedaling going on. You are all depriving the site of some solid games at a period when it's going through kind of a dry spell, and either way a desperate last minute scramble toward the finish line to fulfill your promise is more in the spirit of things than just limply folding.

Also, keep in mind the walls of the pit of SHAME are very steep and with this possibly being the last contest Bucky's doing, it may be a long time before you have a chance to escape. And even then the stench of failure will follow you.

Also also, you little shits will never be forgiven for if this really is the last contest and it turns into a flop because two fucking months was somehow not enough to scrape together a few thousand words.

Starting to think at this point site contests should just drop all pretense and be Friday-Sunday affairs. It's more fun that way anyhow.

Well, I worked on it a shitton and it just... wasn't good. I wouldn't feel good publishing this in its current state. I'll publish this project at some point, but not in time for the contest. 

Toss me into the pit of shame, I deserve it.

To all other entrants: if you don't complete your story you're going to be sharing a pit with a capy who won't ever stop shitting and masturbating, and telling you about it

Oh and in b4 End starts yelling about DISCIPLINE etc.

Weird question: I remember that during the last contest, people published their stories right before it was due and they didn't publish right away. Does anyone know when we have to publish by in order for the story to be published by the due date?

Chaos Contest

The problem was some people made the actual story game right before the deadline. Under the new system a game can't be published for like 3 days after it's made. They had their writing done but couldn't actually publish.

For those of you procrastinating slugs, see an admin if you weren't prepared enough to avoid this problem. And beg them for a SHAME pardon, provided you have proof.

Ohh okay, thank you for the clarification. I have nothing to worry about, then. Good luck to anyone in such a position.

Whoa what? I never knew this. My story is 90% complete, and I'd also like to add illustrations.

EDIT- wait never mind. Panicked. I take it you mean that you can't START the game and then publish it before the three days. I started about 15 days ago, so I should be good, if I understand this correctly.

Speaking from experience, you need to have created the storygame atleast 48 hours before publishing. Which means that if you are starting late, either use an old storygame (which you aren't going to finish) on your account and rename it, or talk to End, quoting the final wordcount of your story as of completion date (post that here, matter of fact). You can find the wordcount by hovering over story length on your unfinished game.

Whoops, forgot about this. Made a blank game just now. That would've been a fun one to screw up on two contests in a row.

@Ford @Malkalack You created your games already, right?

I've published mine, so this account will be sticking around. It's also 56 above 8k despite what the word counter says.

I would like to thank all of the judges in advance for reading my storygame.

Read Crescent's story. Once again I am caught up with the judging.

But since when is the Nanking Massacre debated? It happened. Everyone knows how ruthless the Japanese were during WW2. Anyone saying they weren't raping, burning and pillaging is like saying the Nazis weren't gassing Jews.

But then I'd have to write an essay about praising 2 people at once. Since I'd rather not do that, and not steep low in the SHAME well, I have to... WRITE, WRITE, WRITE!

Since when did it turn into a pit? Also,this is probably the last or second to last contest Bucky is doing, so all I need to do is too do my best (and everyone else) so that contests won't be passed onto someone else, or doused on the ground forever.

Nuh-uh. I squeezed in an "extra thicc" joke in my storygame. I'm basically guaranteed to win at this point.
