Ladies, and gentlemen of CYS, it is time, we talk about something, rather important, don't you think? So, my question is, how did you find this little slice of Heaven that we call Choose Your Story?
Uhh... Can't complain?
No, how did you find this site, not what do you think of the site.
Oh sorry. I think I found it looking up choose your own adventure games on google ^_^
Read an EndMaster tale, then poked around, and then I decided to sign up.
My first few days were driven by a friend's advice, which is how my username, Wolf Heart, and the Wolf Quiz were born.
I read a story called Choice of Zombies on the website called Choice of Games, and then decided I wanted to find a choose your story site that was free. Then found this place, and have been here ever since. Here, https://www.choiceofgames.com/zombies/ if you want to try it. I thought it was good, and about the only free game there.
Isn't Choice of the Dragon free, though?
Come to think of it, yeah, but finding a mate is the hardest thing about the game. Never was able to do it.
I think I managed to find a mate there after browsing the Internet for a guide.
Whenever you're stuck just stop trying and ask for help.
I looked, but there was nothing. Just decided to beat it without a mate. Oh well, the lonely life for me.
Basically you just focus on improving one certain stat, and when you get to the mate selection part try to impress the female that best matches the stat you've been focusing on. For example if you want the brutality-based dragon to be your mate, increase your brutality and try plundering a village for her.
Makes sense, I will have to try, as soon as I am done getting pictures for my stories items, thanks. And a thanks for AlexP for fixing that picture bug problem.
WHAT?! You can? Oh my gosh my entire life is a lie.
...Welp, I know how I'll be spending the next half hour of my day.
So, my world's been shattered today, in ways I don't think anyone can fathom. I'm simultaneously ashamed, happy, and disappointed.
Didn't realize it was difficult to get a mate in that game, I did it on my first play through.
Pfft, that's nothing. I heard a rumor Endmaster even found a mate in real life, and didn't have to look up a guide on the internet or anything.
He used hacks, I know it!
All this time I thought it was some cruel joke.
There is a good flaw that the game had. So one of my traits was really high, around 90, you know to impress a female. One time when I did something that would improve the trait, it said that it increased, but when I checked, it decreased.
Yeah, I got a mate on the second playthrough. You just have to have high enough stats and not do anything to piss them off
I was looking for CYOA type games online.
Someone linked to this site on www.infinite-story.com
I don't remember.
What? How could you forget the best day of your life!
No lie, it was summer, I had nothing to do, and I decided I wanted to make a CYOA like Choice of the Dragon except quirkier—and where you can actually get a mate, though now today I find out that I've just been stupid all these years—and so one Google search later, and here I am, bearing now 2.5 years of negligible progress.
7th grade language arts. The teacher had the class read Finals Week and do a CYOA project. I finished reading it early, and so he said I could read other ones while I waited. The first one I stumbled upon that didn't have a maturity rating of 7/8 was Homo Perfectus, and I got hooked.
Heh, I remember for the longest time I though End Master was my language arts teacher in disguise. XD
How do you know he isn't? ^_^
O_O *Ominous music begins*
Here, let's clear this up then.
Is your claim to be a librarian false, and are you really a middle school language arts teacher?
He's an archivist.
I don't quite recall how i first got here.
Well, I looked for CYOA Games on google.
For the longest time I didn't make an account, mostly because that I was afraid I would fuck up my own first post.
AND I DID!
Hello. I haven't been here too long as a member although I was lurking around for a while before that. I found this website through a Google search. Nice to meet you all
Well, welcome skugga, to this little slice of heaven know as CYS your story. Once you join, you never leave.
"Once you join, you never leave."
I mean, that's not exactly true. Besides, that makes this sound like some kind of cult.
I thought about leaving, I signed up, used the site for a month, disappeared for a year, but then it was like the site was calling my name, now I am back. The voices in my head told me too...
That's just you.
Then why are you still here? *Starts turning head sideways* Because the site tells you to stay. *Head is turned all the way upside down.* Once you enter, you never leave. *Head returns to normal.* You will be here forever, and ever, and ever.
No just fucking with you. (Sigh) Life can be so boring, this site is the cure.
I know that feel bro.
>Be 12 year old me.
>Write shitty sequel to Cave of Time.
>Look for site to put it on.
>Copy story into editor.
>Google 'Return to the Cave of Time' to see if story's famous yet.
>See actual book called Return to the Cave of Time.
>Flip a shit.
>Come back a week later.
>Come back four months later.
>Post thread 'WHY SO MANY CATS'.
>Slowly but surely become part of community from that day on.
Oh Sugar honey ice tea.
I understand that phrase stands for a much less pleasant term, but I have to ask why someone would sweeten their tea with both sugar and honey.
Clearly they should be drinking it black, like a civilized person.
Hey, man, I like my tea bitter, but I find it has to be cold and at least lightly sweetened to be palatable.
Hey, whereabouts do you live? A lot of tea shops have really good stuff that doesn't need sugar to enjoy.
I live in Arkansas.
Our take on tea is basically a syrup with a little lemon juice occasionally mixed in.
I like my women how I like my tea...
Not existing, I hate tea and I'm not attracted to either gender despite being a horny 14 year old.
How did I know..
Either gender? Are you implying that there are only two genders, you cis-gendered, fetus loving, lifetime NRA fuck?
Excuse me? Fuck is a term for sex, which we all know is rape. You evil patriarch!
It also happens to be a traditional Tanzanian surname, you WASP.
*insert insulted reaction, then insert insult that is a satire on what Americans find offensive in this day and age*
Excuse me? I'm a waspkin and you just culturally appropriated me.
I am a capitalist, and your failure to recognize WASP as an acronym is a disgrace to the English language.
Excuse me? I'll have you know l'Anglais est la langue de l'esclavage, merdeseigneur!
Did you guys seriously not get it?
"I understand that phrase stands for a much less pleasant term, but I have to ask why someone would sweeten their tea with both sugar and honey." ~J.C.
I assume that means he got it.
It was not suppose to be used like that. It is used in the movie Madagascar, if you want to know where it came from.
You call that a soufflé, you donkey?
Is it bad I do that with green tea?
I guess if you were wanting a subtle honey taste, without having to settle for almost-unsweetened tea, that it would be understandable.
No, your not, *facepalm* don't take it like that. It's just a way of saying shit, without actually saying it.
I acknowledged the use of the phrase as a reverse acronym for the word "shit", in case you missed that. I don't see what bars me from addressing the absurdity of sweetening tea with both sugar and honey, though.
Stop asking questions, what if they just want to be fat? You have something against people that are looking for a fast way to get fat? If you don't die of a heart attack first...
People who want to be fat are dumbasses. "Fat acceptance" is an inherently ridiculous movement.
Says the person who just told someone to stop asking questions, as he aks two questions himself.
I told him to stop asking questions, not myself.
Then you asked two questions;
"Stop asking questions, what if they just want to be fat? You have something against people that are looking for a fast way to get fat?" -Hayesa
Get it now?
Well, using both honey and sugar won't necessarily increase your caloric intake, assuming you used, say, half the amount of sugar you would use to sweeten a cup of tea mixed and half the amount of honey you would use. It still wouldn't make much sense to use both.
(Voila! No questions.)
I'm out, someone answer his question.
This is precisely the reason.
I searched for a WC CYOA, found a story here, proceeded to read it and subsequently vomit. After reading a couple WC stories here, I began despising WC... But I continued to look around, played a few games, and made an account. After joining, I ruined a couple RPs with some god-mode shit, and I still feel like an absolute retard from that...
Not really surprised you came here in search of Warrior Cats.
Don't worry, the retardedness will never end. I can tell you firsthand.
I know that feel bros..
Was referred here from a friend: Virtualide, Conexion (I think?), etc.
... Are you ready?
ARE YOU READY FOR THIS SUNDAY NIGHT WHEN WWE CHAMP JOHN CENA DEFENDS HIS TITLE IN WWE SUUUUUUPERSLAAAAAAM?!
WWE is fake, well most of it.
... Do you not get the joke? Because I can help.
No, no, I don't, I'm in my own world, yeah. Other than that being used as a prank call if I remember...
It's pretty funny, m8.
I don't understand jokes online.
Besides, this Sunday is Royal Rumble.
Who do you think is going to win?
I know who, m8.
It was a Thanksgiving Week, I think--that week was spent in Mexico, sitting on my bed wondering with my iPhone 3G what I was to do. The only things that seemed available was to swim and sit in here and surf the web. So I took the chance and searched "story game" and this came up. I poked around for like a day and then decided, "Hey, I know enough about warrior cats. How about I make one?" And thus, WCRPS was born.
Looked up "Choose Your Own Adventure," got tired of trying to find a good story on Choice of Games. I then tried the next likely result I saw, which resulted in my coming here and getting hooked.
1st post after a year of lurking haha! (Welcome to CYS) :)
I'm not sure we should be welcoming him.
Have you ever seen what beard mange can do? I have. It was like Chechnya all over again. So many poor, foxy souls lost and so much dawn dish soap for naught.
Well, it's really just my first post in a thread that wasn't deleted after a few hours... That said, thanks!
What kind of stuff do you usually post? Or maybe I don't want to know...
I'm trying to be a little more active in the community, I just keep posting in threads that get end up being purged. As for trolling, I don't intentionally do so. The closest I can think of to doing so would be when I commented to one of Ryder's shitposts spam posts during his big "attack" on the site.
Yeah, that happens, anything that has something that the mods do not like, or if it is not appropriate then it gets thrown away. You just kind of have to look, and see if the thread is going to be something the mods will allow. But on the other hand, it is good for you to get out and be a part of the community. So welcome, I hope you enjoy the forums!
I played a game on Newgrounds that lightweight was a CYOA game, so I googled zombie choose your story games and found this site. So, boredom.
You wouldn't, by chance, be talking about The Sagittarian, would you?
LOL that game was the shit! Think they stopped after 5 or 6. That's what brought me back into the genre.
Nope. I don't happen to remember the name, but I know it's not that.
I stumbled across this awesome site on Google searching for create your own adventure games. I've been searching for a site like this and was thrilled that one existed!! :D
