Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 13. If this were a movie, it would probably be PG-13.

I was taking a look at the CYS forums one night and I thought to myself, 'This is just like some kind of weird game.'

Forum wars is a little diversion I threw together because my other, more important stories are taking forever to write. It's nothing like what I have written before or am likely to write in the future. Still, I think it's pretty cool in its own weird kind of way, so here you go!

P.S. It is difficult.

Great start and introduction to this storygame. I like the descriptions and options on the first page. It might be more fun with updated characters and more characters to choose from, if any current authors are interested in a neat storygame idea. The combat was pretty nice, too, even if it was a little tough to figure out what the actual options were doing in terms of damage to the other guy. It was also a little anticlimactic when I lost – nothing actually seemed to happen and I got the same ending as I did when I won…but perhaps that was the point? Well, actually playing it again, that only happens sometimes…

Based on the numbers that appeared, I’m not sure it’s possible to defeat that last opponent, but seeing as who that last opponent is, I’m not sure you’re even supposed to be able to defeat them. It is a nice game, a little short, especially if you lose in the early rounds, but a nice quick diversion and a good setup for a game. Thank you for sharing this one with the site.

I actually enjoyed this storygame a lot. The idea is very unique and keeps the reader captivated and interested. I like how certain members have different skills and it's cool that you can see these in their everyday posts.

The writing was quite good, and very accurate. It was humorous and flowed very nicely. A good use of different literary devices as well, but there just wasn't much text at all. It was a game, so I can't expect much, but it just didn't have enough description. Games aren't exactly what the site is leaning toward anyway, so this dropped my rating down slightly.

Overall, it's a very good GAME, but it lacks story. It did have a pretty good introduction though, so that was a t least something I guess. Very good work!

5/8

Damn, gotta say I enjoyed it but damn it seems like only Endmaster can beat 3j, but he barely survived I was on 2 sanity xP. Anyways it's good 3j is way too hard but I get it and it's definitely humorous so yeah I say that you should try it and try to beat 3j without Endmaster. Welp, im outta here.

Now that was pretty awesome. This is actually more of an arena-based game, despite the description, and you handled it remarkably well. There are a few bugs but they are mostly superficial.

The game was very funny, and I don't know if it really reflects the forums (tehehehe). Some of the editor work was faulty in my opinion, when it said that I had beat the guy, but my sanity dropped to 0 a variable didn't override the result. Which, I don't know if that was supposed to happen, but both events should not happen. I believe it should have been one or the other.
