Featured Story The Price of Freedom: Innocence Lost

,

You are ten years old when you first feel the weight of shackles around your wrists. In a matter of hours, your whole world is turned upside down as you and your brother are dragged away from your home in Greece to work as slaves in the Roman Empire. Now you must struggle for survival. Every decision you make will affect your future. Your life, the life of your brother and the lives of your friends are in your hands.

Begin your journey as a child, and make heartbreaking choices that will shape the adult you will become. But be careful. An act of kindness might come back to haunt you, and a thoughtless word could earn you some powerful enemies. A split second decision will determine who lives and who dies. Will you sell your soul to win your freedom, or sacrifice everything for the people you love? Will you even live long enough to see the sun rise?

Four mysteries in one. A man has been murdered in his stately home in the country, and you have only four suspects. Can you figure out who the killer is? It could be anyone... Literally. Because the killer is chosen at random at the beginning of every game.

Note: This game was originally made for a competition put together by Morgan R, where writers had to make the best game they could in a day. Unfortunately, I didn't get the game finished in time, so never got around to publishing it, but I stumbled across it a few years later and decided it was worth finishing. So here it is, hope you enjoy ^_^

Yeah, not going to read the Harry Potter series in a month :p

Which of those books do you like best and can any of them be found for free online, either as a book or audiobook? ^_^


CYS Book Club? on 5/4/2021 12:07:43 PM

Wait a second, when did this happen? I mean, both sound like awesome suggestions, but I thought we were doing this in order of who joined the group first.

... (That said, I'm not sure AL has actually read anything yet so maybe skipping over a few wouldn't be a crime.) :p


CYS Book Club? on 5/4/2021 12:02:40 PM

Oh yeah, I forgot I was meant to be doing this.

Well, anyway, this month's task was to read a book you enjoyed from your childhood. I decided to read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. (or Sorcerer's Stone for all of you Americans out there who are, apparently, too fucking stupid to know what a Philosopher is.) But while discussing what books we were going to read, Mizal convinced me to give Watership Down a read as well, so here are my conclusions.

Well, what can I say other than Watership Down was complete shit. There was no magic. No spells, no potions, no pointy talking hats, and the rabbits didn't even have wands. What the fuck are you trying to sell me Mizal? Utter crap. Obviously you have no appreciation for quality literature like me.

... Seriously though, I kind of got bored of Harry Potter and only made it halfway through. Don't get me wrong, I do still love it, but I think I just enjoy the world and setting more than I do the characters, and with the story, you really have to stick with it for awhile before it starts getting good. (Essentially, when people start dying). I think the main thing that I remembered from what I did read was how completely I hated the first chapter. So J.K.Rowling's thought process was, "Okay, so I'm going to write a magical book about a bunch of witches and wizards that go to magic school to learn magic... So let's start with an opening chapter about the most fucking boring family in the world, going out of my way to make sure I emphasize to the audience how fucking boring they are. That should capture a 10 year old's attention."

Anyway, Watership Down was fucking awesome. Thank you very much Mizal. I'm not sure what it was about the book but it was just fucking enchanting! Literally everything about the book was gorgeous. The characters, the lapine language, the thought process of the rabbits, the stories of El-ahrairah. I was just hooked and didn't want to stop listening.

I remember reading an interview with Richard Adams where he said that Watership Down was extremely difficult to publish because, according to the publishers, "Younger children won't like it because it's written in such a grown up way, and older children won't like it because it's about talking rabbits." ... Well fuck you, publishers! No one ever gets too old for talking bunny rabbits!

Was surprised to hear that Mizal wasn't a big fan of the cartoon, since I always loved the cartoon as a kid and, after reading the book, I only appreciate it more for it's incredibly accurate attention to detail in both the rabbit's lines and movements. (Particularly liked the parts in the book when Simon and Garfunkel chimed in with a musical number.)

Any way, to sum up, I didn't get nearly enough of the beautiful Lapine world, and so I think I'm going to have to buy a copy of Tales of Watership Down, since I can't find an audiobook copy anywhere and I want more talking rabbits. ^_^

... Anyway, @AestheticLlama I think you joined the bookclub next. Any good books to recommend. (Public Domain preferred.)

I didn't. I was just having too much fun to say anything. :p

Well, now I know. Got to admire Japanese priorities. Very thoughtful of them to blurr tub girl's vagina to preserve her modesty. ^_^


Revelations at the COG Ranch on 4/29/2021 2:10:09 PM

Never heard of them. Must google! ^_^

I personally think it would've been worse had there been a goat involved.

Well at least you wrote Eternal. ^_^

Not a chance in hell! She's personally told me that she was planning on finishing the story at one point, but then she started making large origami giraffes and has found it a far more productive use of her time.
