My name is JMgskills and I am a disciple of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

So this is kind of sad but it's looking like I won't finish my Blackwood or Star Wars series. For all of those who liked the series and commented and rated it thank you guys I really appreciate it. It's just that I've kind of moved on from that stage in my life. I have other responsibilities and writing is, unfortunately, not one of them anymore. It's been months since I actually wrote consistently and that doesn't seem to be changing with my increased work load.

Finally, the reason why I am taking the stories down is not because I feel they are bad or something. I just don't want it to be that people may read it, like it, and then expect more only to find out that there isn't. Thanks to all who encouraged me and made me a better writer.


God bless.









Star wars: A Padawan's Journey

This is an action adventure star wars game. It is not based on any continuity and all the characters here are mine only. You play as a young padawan who is trying to survive in a galaxy that is hostile toward jedi. The story starts out when your ship is attacked.

note: This is my first attempt at a choose your story game. So if it is not that difficult or long sorry in advance. Also, after you finish the game, start at the beginning again and choose different options. This will help explain a few things that will appear later in the series.

Ratings and comments are always appreciated!!!

Have fun!!

Star Wars: A Padawan's Journey Part 2: Hunted

This is an action adventure Star Wars game. This is not based on any continuity and all the characters here are mine. This is the second part of my star wars series so if you have not played through the first you should. Thanks to all those who played the first game and commeted. I really appreciate that.

note: I read the comments of the first game and I have changed accordingly . 

1) This story is much longer and there are a lot more choices you have.

2) This chapter is just trying to further the story. In the next chapter I will add items for the player to use.

3) Characters with pictures are very important and will have a big role later on in the story, so I would advise you to remember them.

4) Llike I said in the last game you should try all options because though the player chooses how the characters progress through the story I, the writer, only choose one. So if you do not want to be confused later on try everything.

Comments are always appreciated so if you can please do.



Star Wars: A Padawan's Journey Part 3: Trials

This is a Star Wars action/adventure game. This is not based on any continuity. All characters here are mine only. This is the third part of my Star Wars series so if you have not played through the first two installments you should do so. Thanks to all those who have been commenting and playing the game. I really appreciate that.

There are now achievments that you can earn while playing the game if you do certain things at certain times.

The achievments are:

1) The one man army achievment

2) The stealth takedown achievment

3) The destruction of property achievment


1) I have added a new main character that you will recognize from the last chapter. The reason why the character didn't have a picture before is because I didn't know I would make it a main character but now it is. Keep a lookout.

2) There are now items in this game. Took me a while to figure it out, but now that I have this story feels more like a game.

3) There will be more achievments later on in the series.

4) The next chapter is when the story really starts to pick up so this chapter is really important.


Star Wars: A Padawan's Journey part 5: Rogue

This is a Star Wars action/adventure game. I do not own the Star Wars series I just have the privilege of using their work. I also do not claim ownership of the pictures. Thanks to all of those who have been commenting and playing. I appreciate that.

For one of the pictures that I use in the story, the one of a soldier carrying a gun, I borrowed it from a guy on deviantart called Dusty101. He's got some cool pictures at you should really check out his stuff. Here is a link to his page:

If you have not played through the first four games you should do so.

The achievements for this story are:

Breaking the fourth wall

A hero in Sith clothing

Friendly fire


1) You, the player, now talk. In previous stories you will have noticed that you were silent during the most part. Now, it has come to the point where you must speak. Sorry if this is weird for anyone but I feel it is necessary from now on.

2) If you  have any questions about the game then message me. I will get back to you quickly.


Star Wars: A Padawan's Journey Part 6: Fugitive


What do you do when the people you once called your allies have now turned on you? How do you survive in a galaxy that wants nothing less than your death?

Can you survive? Or will this be the end of your journey?


This is a Star Wars action/adventure game. I do not own Star Wars I'm just using their work. The pictures are not mine and I do not claim ownership. This is not based on any continuity and the characters created are my own original idea.


I've run out of things to say that are new about my games so now I've decided to add descriptions to the story. Thanks for all those who have been commenting and being patient while I write my chapters. You guys make it worth it.

The achievements for this game are:

The tale of the yellow lightsabers.

Force Wars Champion.

Like always, comments are appreciated. If anyone needs help on anything regarding the series please message me. I will not answer in the comments because that is spoilers.




Star Wars: A Padawan's Journey Part 7: Menace

Public enemy number one: You.

With both Sith and Jedi hunting you down it is only a matter of time before your capture and eventual execution. Knowing this, you hatch a daring plan to clear your name, though that plan means going back to the people who tried to kill you.

Unknown to you, your actions would start events that you could never have dreamt of.

Events that could tear apart the entire galaxy itself.

With your back against the wall and time running out will you survive?

Or is this the end of your journey?


This is a Star Wars action/adventure game. I do not own Star Wars I'm just using their work. The pictures are not mine and I do not claim ownership. This is not based on any continuity and the characters created are my own original idea.


I've taken out the part where my characters do this at the beginning of their talking:

Character: "Hello."

It's unnecessary and it's time for me to let go of that bad habit. Also, this is probably my longest chapter of the series. There is a TON of information about my series inside of this chapter. For example:

Ever wanted to know the Council Members background?

What do the Jedi actually DO?

And the biggest question of all: Why do the Sith and Jedi hate each other?

All these questions and more are answered in this chapter. I would suggest trying to complete ALL the side missions for this one guys.

Lastly, the player has a lot more control in battle sequences. You can now use your items more to help you combat difficult foes. So if you see a page without a link and your in the middle of a fight, take control of your destiny and choose!

End of notes.

The achievements for this game are: 

The duel on Cantoon.

The duel on Dargun.

History, Jedi, and a cup of Tea.

The tale of two brothers.

End of achievements.


Sorry it's taking longer to make these games guys. I try to publish monthly but my life outside of this site is really busy. But the main reason I'm even still posting is because of the people who read my games and are nice enough to comment on them. I read everyone one of my comments and am very appreciate for each one.

If you have any questions about the series message me. Do not post it in the comments because I will not answer for it is spoilers.


Last bit of information:

This marks the halfway point of my series!!


Star Wars: A Padawan's Journey part 8: War

War. The most brutal battle this galaxy has ever seen is about to unfold. Both Sith and Jedi prepare their forces with one goal in mind: destroying the other. And in the middle of all of this is you. The hated enemy of both sides.

The battle about to be fought will not only change you but the entire course of history.


This is a Star Wars action/adventure game. I do not own Star Wars, I'm just using their work. The pictures are not mine and I do not claim ownership. This is not based on any continuity and the characters created are my own original idea.


It has been so long since the last update of this series! For all of those who have patiently waited for me to write I just want to say thank you. Trust me, I really wanted to finish this chapter sooner but this was a monster for me to tackle. As always, leave a comment. Guys, seriously, you don't know how much a comment means to me. Not only do you guys help me become a better writer by pointing out mistakes, you also encourage me to keep on trying.

Secondly, I really decked out this chapter in action. I've been reading lately that you guys thought my series has been lacking in action and I wanted to correct that(That's why it took so long for me to finish). If you guys still feel there needs to be more fighting let me know. Though I tried my best to put more in I can always improve.

Lastly, I've found that some people are upset that I don't branch my games and don't have multiple endings. By now, I think it is apparent that I don't branch but I suppose I should say it to make it clear: This is a series. Therefore, there are not going to be multiple endings. I'm sorry if this upsets you but that's just how I roll and one of the few things I feel no need to change.

Hope that clears things up.


The achievements are:

Welcome Newbie

Beast mode



Star Wars: A Padawan's Journey part 9: Invasion


The Blackwood Chronicles:


The Blackwood Chronicles: Abduction

Being nearly blown up, shot at, and almost strangled to death happens to everyone. It's like one of those once in a lifetime flukes that everybody experiences. But now it's over. It's just a simple day at the aquarium and there can be no possible way of anything going wrong.



Thanks to all who commented the first game. I know I had issues that you guys pointed out and I have changed those problems. Please do not hesitate to point out anything else because I learn from you guys.


The Blackwood Chronicles: Framed

Bryce has survived a summer of nightmares. He has had more life threatening experiences anyone should ever go through and just wants to put it all behind him. It's the start of a new semester and, for Bryce, a chance to make things the way they were. No more fighting or running. Just normalcy.

But things don't always go the way we plan. Unbeknown to him a threat greater than any other he has faced before rises. Bryce will have to use all his cunning and skills if he is to survive this encounter with the most dangerous foe to date.


WARNING: I know some of you guys out there like a lot of choices to choose from early in the story. So I'm just giving you a heads up that you will have to read eight long pages before you actually get to some choices. Now I'm sorry about that but I couldn't help it. Those eight pages are very important.

You have been warned.

End of Warning.


Sorry its been so long since my last update on any of my stories. I've been very busy with life and I've been forced to write in stints. This is definitely my longest chapter in my Blackwood series because I'm trying to add a lot more action seeing as some people thought my last chapter was kind of short. Also, I'm going to be adding to the bottom of every story the previous chapters. I'm doing this because, unlike my Star Wars series, I'm not numbering my chapters and I don't want people to be confused on what to read next.





As always, leave a comment if you want. I always like to read what you guys have to say.




The Blackwood Chronicles: Heist

It was supposed to be a peaceful afternoon at the library.

How did it come to be that by the end of the day he would be shot at, nearly blown up, and involved in a dangerous game of cat and mouse?

Sometimes, life just isn't fair.



The picture I use for the main character is not mine. It belongs to a guy named silvair on He was very kind in letting me use it and you should check out his page. Here is a link:

He's got some great pictures.

Help with Padawans journey part 5 on 10/20/2013 1:35:29 PM

I just got started writing it again. I was in a bit of a slump for awhile but now I'm back;) I know how I'm going to end the chapter and even how to begin it but the middle portion is giving me troubles.

Help with Padawans journey part 5 on 10/15/2013 11:07:55 PM

Hey LoneWolf I'll help you out here:

When the guards have your chains and start talking wait two times. When the guard slackens his grip on the chains rush him. After that his brother will be ticked and be coming for you. When he does don't dodge or run because you can't defend yourself or run away because of the chains. Instead, use the Corinth ring. Try to avoid his attacks until you are at least partially free of the chains. After that I think you should be able to find a way to beat him.

Hope this helps;)

I just said his name because they seemed to have a special dislike for each other. I think I read some storylines when they were up against each other a lot so I just assumed. Then again, some could argue that deathstroke is a bat family villain(Batman and Nightwing each have fought him on more than occasion).

Actually, now that I think about it deathsroke seems more like a heroes villain than anything. What I mean is that every hero seems to have a certain disdain for deathstroke so I guess no hero can truly claim him as their archenemy(As opposed to like say Joker who we all know is Batman's nemissis.)

Getting back to the point, Flash rogue gallery still doesn't really compare to his justice league pals enemies so I guess Grod and Zoom with henchmen like Mirror Master or Captain Cold would be a good idea for the movie

Any other Comic Book geeks out there? on 7/22/2013 3:52:58 PM

Like scarecrow in Batman begins? Yeah, I could see how that could work. More villains but at least they actually DO something and not just be a lame first fight that the hero simply beats up on.

Any other Comic Book geeks out there? on 7/22/2013 3:51:33 PM

Batman: Ras, Joker, Bane.

Superman: Lex, Darkseid, Doomsday.

Green Lantern: Sinestro

Wonderwoman: Cheetah?(Maybe) Ares and Hades.

Green Arrow: Deathstroke.

Yeah, Flash is a little weak compared to theirs.(And these are the ones I'm naming off the top of my head)

Any other Comic Book geeks out there? on 7/22/2013 2:56:08 PM

Good point and, yes, it did totally work. I suppose I didn't mind the lizard so much because I saw him when he was a human before. If done correctly though I guess Grod could be just as good(If not better).

Any other Comic Book geeks out there? on 7/22/2013 2:40:17 PM

I'm leaning toward Zoom. He has a personal history with Wally and I love stories when heroes and villains are connected like that. It's like in the Batman movies. I never thought that scarecrow was as interesting as a villain than say Ras. Ras and Bruce knew each other long before they were enemies and it was that kind of dynamic that made them go up against each other interesting.

And to be honest, I'm not really feeling Grod. I know he can be awesome and all but I'd rather see the Flash go up against a human. It's more interesting to me that way because if I saw him in the movie I would be like, "Dude, he's fighting an ape."

Couldn't really get into it.

Any other Comic Book geeks out there? on 7/22/2013 2:37:11 PM

He could. Captain cold also might work.

Writing first story on 7/22/2013 1:09:27 PM

^ This right here.

Any other Comic Book geeks out there? on 7/22/2013 12:56:23 PM

I'm really excited for the Flash. He's one of my favorite superheroes ever with his wit and ability. I'm nervous for him though. Humor can sometimes be hard to pull off without it being cheesy and I'm interested in how they will do his power. He's the fastest man alive so how good will the effects be when he starts running.

Fingers crossed.

The Batman/Superman movie is also one I'm excited for. I doubt that the entire movie will be them going against each other though. I've read plenty of storylines where they meet and at the beginning they are enemies/rivals. After they figure each others identity though they seem to respect each other and fight a common foe. Who that foe is I don't know. Maybe Lex and Joker but I doubt it. Hope it's a good villain that can give them a run for their money.

Really liked the Avengers, Captain America, and Spiderman. Thought they were really well done. If they keep to the formula they had before I'm sure they will do fine.

Really excited for these movies.
