It's XXIII century, humankind has long ago reached stars. But it's not golden age. Space is harsh master and so we become like it - cold, ruthless and effective. New society was created, new kind of people. Like anthill all we have are our roles to fulfill. Nothing more.

You are one of the War Marionettes - brainwashed humans with technical upgrades who are bound to obey every order of their masters. 'Normal' people call you 'puppets'. Still, you are very special kind of puppet - experimental model. And your foreboding name is Thirteen...


*ALWAYS first collect items as some of them are needed for game to function properly

*this is a first part of a series, I may be writing more soon

* and yes - you can get killed here pretty quickly...

Really cool story idea. I enjoyed it a lot, even if the grammar was a little bad. I'm guessing English is your second language, so well done.

Your storyline is really well thought out and awesome. Your execution is poor because the writing is incoherent. You're missing words and your grammar is terrible. Is English your second language? If so, this is an absolutely awesome story. I gave it a 5 because I really love the storyline. Just as a side note, I don't think this is long enough to warrant splitting it off into a sequel. Generally, as a rule of thumb, a story should be about 200 pages long before that's even thought of.

I really liked the concept and storyline. My main complaint would be general mistakes in grammar and writing style. Still, I had fun reading this story and I hope you make other parts to it.

I really enjoy the premise to your story, and it's surprisingly well written for someone to whom English is a second language. Next time, you might consider working with someone else on the site who can edit it for you, to help make the story work as best as it can in English. Other than that, I just wish it was longer because I really enjoyed it but it was over too quick.

I really liked it. Has a nice plot and storyline looking foward to next installment. Spelling was a bit off but not horribly.
