Storygames

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.
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 Suzy's Strange Saga
Things would be so much easier if your name was Mary Sue Additional notes: This story is a fully self contained one and can easily be read on its own, however it also acts as: A direct sequel to the "Good Girl" short story in Tales From The Basement. A semi sequel to the other TFTB short stories, Repression, TRASH, Love SICK and Geek. A semi prequel to Ground Zero. 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 still "win" by getting one of the epilogues. There are 16 epilogues total.
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.

ANGZT: Behind the Music on 9/26/2016 2:44:27 PM
ANGZT: The Bantastic Burning Tour As the stadium burned behind them, our two heroes of ANGZT were having a minor disagreement with how tonight’s gig went. “Alright! Alright! It was a fucking accident!” End said. “Accident?! You set me on fucking fire you asshole! My name isn’t Bucky!” Sentinel said “Look I said I apologize. What more do you want?” “I really don’t fucking know at this point. I’m not even mad about the burns, I’m more upset about my costume! It’s ruined! Do you realize how much money I spent getting it to look just right?I mean I looked exactly like Genghis fucking Khan!” “No you didn’t, you’re whiter than snow.” “That’s not the point! I’m saying I looked like a total badass in that costume and now it’s gone!” “So just wear another one, it’s not like you don’t have a whole bunch.” “You don’t get it man! You gotta change it up every now and then and that particular costume always got the crowd hyped up! People like variety.” “Bah, the people are mindless idiots. I’ve never had to change costumes to get the crowd’s attention.” “Motherfucker, YOU don’t even change your goddamn clothes like ever! When was the last time you were in anything except that ratty ass robe?” “I don’t know. Do I need to? It seems to work.” “Yes, yes, I know you’re proud to be an 80s death metal relic with all the edgy grim reaper motif ooooooohhhh that’s original.” “Wow, you’re really salty about this. Don’t know why. Ford from the Hitchhikers lost half of his wardrobe when that fire got out of hand, and he didn’t bitch about it the way you are.” “That’s because he’s got a billion shitty costumes most of which are just trash bags he glues various paper shapes to! Of course he doesn’t give a shit about most of them!” While Sentinel was trying to catch his breath mid-rant, a young assistant came up to End. Her face was partially dirty with ash and she was coughing a lot. “Mr. Master? I managed to save your big black book of moms.” she said followed by coughing. “Oh thanks, Apples. Geez, you look bad. You alright?” End replied. “Apologies for my appearance, but the smoke and fumes almost overwhelmed me and I fell through some floorboards. I nearly burned to death, but I knew you really needed this book so I wanted to make sure I got it and returned it to you because that’s what a good assistant does! Are you pleased?” “Yeah, it’s cool.” “Oh thank you Master! Is there anything else you need?” “No, not at this time. You did good, off you go.” Filled with a sense of accomplishment and approval, Apples skipped off with glee to the nearest ambulance before she collapsed into a coughing fit in the back of the vehicle. Sentinel watched End as he skimmed through his book. “Y’know End, that’s another thing I want to talk to you about.” Sentinel said. “What now?” End said. “Mizal and Friends have been making A LOT of jokes about you and your new assistant.” “Yeah, yeah, I’ve heard the jokes.” “Well…aren’t you a little worried about your reputation?” “Not particularly. I need an assistant and she needs money for college. We’re helping each other in a mutually beneficial way, what’s the big deal?” “…You know what that sounds like right?” Sentinel exclaimed. “Hey if people want to have dirty minds about something that’s totally innocent, I really can’t worry about that. Besides Mizal and Friends should worry about their own fucking reputation with the way they’ve been going lately. I mean I like them and all, but the goddamn KKK came out against them recently. It’s pretty damn bad when you got Nazis condemning your behavior.” “Heh, yeah they are a bunch of dicks.” “Plus look, you KNOW me, Sent. I’m ALL about the moms. Ain’t nobody squirming on this lap unless she’s at least 30 and got some mom mileage on her, you know what I mean? Shit, I ain’t going out like the Azure One.” End reinforced. “Yeah I know. I’m just sayin’, when people don’t watch themselves, they’re definitely going out like the Azure One…what was that all about anyway?” Sentinel replied. “Inside thing, don’t worry about it. Anyway, once again I apologize for fucking up your costume, I’ll pay for a new one to get made. Not like I’m spending it on clothes anyway.” “Okay. Thanks.” Derp came up to Sentinel and End who both groaned at the thought of having to speak with him. “Hey guys what’s going on over here?” Derp asked. “Nothing. Look, if you want more money because you lost your stuffed wolf in the fire, forget it. Read your contract.” End said. “No, it’s not that. I just wondered if you guys heard that one person actually died in the fire. Just pulled out his burnt corpse.” “Shit, who was it?” Sentinel asked. “Um, one of the guys from the one of the opening acts. Rimjob and Rimmers. It was the lead singer.” “Oh. He sucked anyway.” Sentinel said. “Sure hope his mom does too, because it looks like I got another one I have to console in her time mourning. See you guys later.” End said took his leave. And with those final words our intrepid music heroes once again weathered a shitstorm and continued their journeys.
The CYS Weekly issue #1 (And maybe the last..) on 9/25/2016 10:39:53 PM
If you had an obituary section for those lost in the creation of this paper, it would have doubled as a comedy section.
CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!) on 9/25/2016 10:11:11 PM
Rimjob said he was tired of reading posts by idiotic noobs and couldn't take it anymore, so he begged to take it like a champ. It was unexpected to me too since it came out of nowhere, but hey at least this season has some surprises!
CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!) on 9/25/2016 9:58:05 PM
In a moment of selflessness, RimC (or Rimjob as he liked to be called) asked to take it like a champ. His sacrifice will be remembered. (Probably not)
CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!) on 9/25/2016 4:41:34 PM
I didn't even think Sentinel cared about his alts except for Angela.
CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!) on 9/25/2016 4:33:03 PM
In the meantime, Genghis_Khan took it like a champ. (Decided to give Ford a break this time)
CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!) on 9/25/2016 4:22:19 PM
You've probably just doomed all of Ford's remaining alts (Those that I can find anyway). Lol.

I vaguely remember it was named after some Youtuber he hated, but I never heard of. Some 5th level vegan or something.

Well if Briar Rose said it was a story for children, I for one have no reason to disbelieve a woman of her impeccable reputation.

Alchemy took it like a champ! (Everyone else had plot armor)
