If for some baffling reason you ever have the urge to read something really offensive, it can be found here.

Then again if you aren't a complete degenerate and you really have lots of time to waste then you might like this instead.

A Very Special Choose Your Story
Some stories have a message...kinda... Additional Notes: WARNING! (The real one) This story is pretty offensive, it can get graphic and downright ruthless at times so if you don’t like that sort of humor, don’t read this story. But if you read it anyway don’t complain if you get offended, I did warn you and keep in mind it IS only a story. Also, don't bother trying to "win" either. You can't. Just heed the moral lessons you may learn.
Alpha Wolf
Old monsters never die, they just get meaner. Additional Notes: There are history links for each monster (In the form of your character's memories) and while not neccessary to understand the story, they do provide deeper background. Ignore whatever you might know about various old movie monsters, you'll find that most of their histories are much different in this story. You may find that this story has a movie feel to it which is appropriate considering the characters involved. The langauge (and violence) can get graphic sometimes, so if you don't like that sort of thing, you probably shouldn't read it. Finally this isn't really a "win/lose" type story, however there are definitely good/bad/neutral endings. A few endings are even "really good" though they won't be spelled out as such.
Featured Story Death Song
One musician's tale in a dying world Additional Notes: If you’ve read and liked Necromancer, then this might interest you as this story takes place during the same course of events of that story. (Not a prequel, not a sequel, but an equal!) However, this story is definitely more “story” than “game”. In fact you shouldn’t even bother reading it if you’re intent on “winning”. You can’t. That being said, there is a “true ending” to this story and you’ll probably know if you get it. If you do get it, you can consider it a “win” if you like. There are a few points in the story where there are links that lead to “Letters to Home”. While not necessary to understand the story, they do provide a little more insight into the protagonist’s thoughts and feelings on various situations.
Featured Story Eternal
The last hope for a dying empire Additional notes: This story can be very long assuming you're not dying. Years pass and your surroundings will most likely change. You may very well live a life time in the story. As with any of my writings, the story comes before the game. However while there isn't a complex inventory and all of that, you can technically "win" by getting one of the epilogues. There are 13 epilogues total. There are also several points in the story where there are links that lead to more background information on various people, places, things and events. While not completely necessary to understanding the story, they do give you more insight into it. @font-face { font-family: "Times New Roman"; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }table.MsoNormalTable { font-size: 10pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; }
Featured Story Geek
Carnivals aren't all fun and games. Additional Notes: While there is only one spot that contains extra histories for this story, it's basically the background information of all the major characters and factions. It's strongly recommended that these are read due to the fact that your character will be interacting with most of these folks in his attempts to successfully accomplish his task(s). This story has a very factional feel to it, so choose your allegiances carefully to get one of the better endings.
Featured Story Ground Zero
If you see a bright light, duck and cover! Additional notes: I should point out that this story can be very long assuming you're not dying. Years pass and your surroundings will most likely change. You may very well live a life time in the story if you're lucky. You will also experience a completely different adventure depending on how you escaped the initial nuclear strike. (Assuming you do survive it.) As with any of my writings, the "story" comes before the "game". However, this story was written in a "game like" format. So while there isn't a complex inventory and all of that, you can technically "win" by getting one of the 4 special endings. (You'll know if you get one because you'll get an epilogue)
Imagination
This one's for the kids, no really! Additional Notes: This story has clear cut win/lose endings. There is nothing excessively unusual about this story, it's just a simple "children's story". (Yes, you can still die in it)
Featured Story Innkeeper
Running the family business isn't easy! Additional Notes: In a few places there are links for history or certain characters. While not necessary to understand the story, they do provide further background information. There are several endings varying in degrees of good/bad or neutral outcomes. Technically there is one very happy ending, but it isn't labeled as such.
Love SICK
Underneath the sickness there's love... Additional Notes: WARNING! This story contains a lot of graphic content, if you are offended by ultra violence, explicit sexual descriptions, tons of swearing, blasphemy, inappropriate dark humor, and brutal misanthropy in general then DO NOT read this story!Of course now that I’ve mentioned all the things it contains, you’ll probably read it anyway, you sick little monkey. Well don’t complain if you get offended, I did warn you and keep in mind it IS only a story. This also isn't really a "win/lose" type story. While there are some endings better than others, this is basically just a tale about a very twisted man and his very twisted lifestyle.
Featured Story Necromancer
Additional Notes: This story is definitely more "story" than "game", however there are two distinct paths that can be followed, each with their own pitfalls and additional choices. There is also "one true" ending in which can be considered a "win" (You'll know if you got it, because you'll get an epilogue) This story can get long, and assuming you're surviving, years do pass in it and you and your environment will change. There are a few points in the story where there are links that lead to more background information on various people and things. While not completely necessary to understand the story, they do give you more insight into it. The text that accompanies some of the pics are also done for similar purposes (Your journal entries, personal thoughts, letters written to you, etc)
Paradise Violated
Humanity never changes... Additional Notes: There are links leading to various background information and your character's current thoughts throughout the story. In some cases these may provide greater insight since some mysterious things can occur in this story. There are also several endings varying in degrees of good/bad/neutral outcomes. Technically there is one ultimate "winning" ending, but it isn't labeled as such.
Repression
Emotions can be wonderful or dangerous... Additional Notes: This story has a few bits that are probably a bit on the disturbing side. Not many, but they are there in places. So if you don't like that sort of thing, you probably shouldn't read it. This story in general is probably a bit odd and less verbose than most of my other stories. There are also several endings varying in degrees of good/bad/neutral outcomes. While there are some endings better than others, this is basically just the tale of a teenager who definitely has some issues.
Featured Story Tales From The Basement
Because Basement Dwellers are people too! Additional Notes: This story is three stories in one. Your first choice will lead to a separate tale of a different “basement dweller”. Each one is mostly different in tone. Ebay Escapist is weird and random. It’s the least verbose of the three. (Or my stories in general) Good Girl is the longest and most descriptive of the three. There is some weirdness going on here too, but is mostly kept much more in "reality". There is a cast of characters link in the beginning to help you keep up with who’s who. Anime Addict has a lot of offensive language and humor, so if you don't like that sort of thing you shouldn’t read this one. In all the tales there are several endings varying in degrees of good/bad/neutral outcomes. While there are some endings better than others, these are basically just tales of basement dwellers.
TRASH
Yee Haw! It's a trailer park life for me! Additional Notes: This story has a ton of offensive langauge and humor so if you don't like that sort of thing, you probably shouldn't read it. Though given the setting, the language used is pretty accurate. This also isn't really a "win/lose" type story. While there are some endings better than others, this is basically just a tale about a typical day of a degenerate that lives in a trailer park.

If you had to lose one of your senses... on 8/22/2014 12:28:21 AM
Things did eventually ease up a bit. The promoter or manager or whoever (The dude that paid us and these bands) eventually started hiring private security for these events so things didn't get too out of hand. It was probably necessary just so these bands would have a few places still left to play at.

Really I thought girls going to the bathroom together or in groups was a pretty common thing for them to do, especially in a bar setting. So that didn't really seem all that strange to me. The stranger thing I remember seeing was when we were setting up some Bosnian and Croatian bands and just about every woman at these places were walking hand in hand with each other. Most of them from what I could tell had boyfriends and it wasn't some big lesbian fest, but whenever they walked together somewhere they held hands. I guess that was a cultural thing. I guess it was also a cultural thing for them to completely TRASH all the halls we set up at for them. Seriously, these places looked like warzones after they were done with their party every single time. They got banned everywhere because bathrooms were completely destroyed all the time. Not sure why there was a need to rip bathroom doors (male and female) off the hinges and paper dispenser off the walls, but as long as they didn't screw with our equipment, it really wasn't our problem.

Fun pointless story time. When I used to work with my dad, I just finished setting up for a band at a bar so I went to one of back sections of the place that had tables to complete some assignments I had for a class. These two girls came and sat at a table near the one I was at and they ordered some drinks. Then after a couple minutes, one of them called over to me. "Hey, we have to go to the bathroom, could you make sure nobody puts roofies or anything in our drinks?" one asked. "Uh, okay." I replied a little surprised and then they left. I went back to doing what I was doing, (I think I looked up once) and then eventually came back and got their drinks. I just found this incredibly odd that if they were really so worried about getting roofied, why the hell would they ask a complete stranger to look after their drinks?
If you had to lose one of your senses... on 8/21/2014 11:02:46 PM
I thought the whole point of spiking drinks for nefarious purposes was to use drugs that were tasteless when you mixed them into a drink. If the taste is going to be a tip off, it's sort of inefficient.

Lol, well I'm just messing around really I never had a proper ending in mind for it due to it being outside the scope of the story. If one wants to, they can choose to believe the protagonist made it and lived happily ever after with Becky.
Eternal: The Eternalborn Expansion is released! on 8/21/2014 9:52:03 PM
You get there the same way you get the 13th epilogue. You just take "Die" instead of "Beg." Or "Struggle" if you enjoy really bad endings.
Ground Zero Walkthrough on 8/21/2014 9:38:00 PM
Oh, you mean the "Seek out Becky's shelter ending." Yeah, the protagonist doesn't make it, he gets killed by wasteland raiders on his way there and Becky ultimately commits suicide a few years later due to loneliness when she eventually realizes that you're not coming.

Geez, between the Eternal walkthrough this same person made and this one, they sure are dedicated. They even did a walkthrough of the unofficial 5th ending.
Eternal: The Eternalborn Expansion is released! on 8/21/2014 3:38:15 PM
Well if this person actually makes a few decent stories I'd consider such a thing, but I doubt if the person is a writer type and is just a reader.

Sounds like Modern would work. Just another quick bit of advice. If you're directly copy/pasting stuff from Word on here, make sure you turn off the rich text editor or else you'll get some text weirdness on the page that you'll have to go back and correct.
