Now this is what I call a contest. My style. I'm in for 100 points.
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*
Does the "chaos" have to be anarchy? I am thinking of historical fiction. :/
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!
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!
So, you'll be joining for 125 then?
In in full throttle, here's my 125!
I'd like to join for 125 points, please.
I'm in for 125 points, which will put me in debt for 74 points.
If I remember correctly, going in debt means you actually have to win the contest to get your points back.
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?'
To be fair, he did say he was going to get those points back after winning the contest.
* 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.
And uhh... what does that entail?
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.
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.

That said, sign me up for 25 points. I'll see if I have the time to make something.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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!
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.
Dammit! All that flagellation for nothing!
I'd like to enter, still thinking about how many points I should wage considering I'm already in the negatives.
Go all out, since you're already screwed :P
Yep, go big or go fuck yourself.
I'll bet 500 of my non-existent points for no other benefit.
It's wet and dark down here...smells worse than lil bean's clam-infested privates.
It's okay. You'll have plenty of people to join you soon..
So it's basically exactly like L'il bean's privates.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
When's the latest we can bet and join?
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?
YOLO I'll bet 25.
I have not published a story on this site yet, maybe this will motivate me to get writing a bit!
Sign me up for 100 points and let's do this!
KILL MAIM BURN
125 me the fuck up
Enter me for 50.
Instant regret, edit lock
Same here, as I know I won't have time to make a good CYOA T.T
Oh well. Good luck to you!
Just pull a Fazz when the contest is done. You'll be fiiiine!
I'm absolutely sure it will be :D
I'll join in at 125 points.

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
I've been both of those.
Ha, I've been writing so many words for my story. Words like, "This is the first page in your adventure game. To change this text or edit the page further, switch the page view by clicking on the edit button above."
*groans* Ughh. I'm writing, but not fast enough. :/ I've planned out the main path, mostly. Thinking about the rest.
@endmaster can choose how many points I'm entering in, in the style of chaos.
Are we allowed to have a beta reader?
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.
Back from the dead real quick. Put me down for all I got. Thanks.
Shit not again
He only bet 105 and didn't even go into debt, so he'll actually get everything back as long as he submits something.
I'm rather offended that I, of all people, have been deemed a slave.
Can we change that to prisoner or something?
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.
Is there anyway I could join the Chaos Seekers?
I'm pretty sure you have to bet an insane amount of points.
Can I just earn a bunch of points so that I can bet them all?
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.
Don't tempt me...
So will you be betting 2000?
I'll join this contest for 25 points.
