Mystic_Warrior, The Dramatist
I'm trying to think of some witty line or some eloquent words of wisdom, but nothing comes to mind and I might as well get on with this. My CYS name is Mystic Warrior, so feel free to call me Myst or any other variation of my name you prefer. There's nothing much you really need to know about me apart from that and what's written below this paragraph.
I'm currently a student in high school, and working on a storygame that may or may not be published in the near future depending on what direction my life takes. Motivation seems to come and go rather spontaneously for me, so don't hold your breath waiting for the next story. So far, I've written two storygames: Dreamtruder and Breaker. I would appreciate it if you, random reader of my profile, could take the time to look through it.
Feel free to message me if you want to talk. I might not always reply immediately, but I'll eventually get back to you. If you have any tips about how to stay motivated during writing, please send them to me (I'm starting to feel a lack of motivation now).
Beneath the seas, hidden from the Ones Above, our society goes about our normal, routinely lives. I cannot help but feel bored with all that is going on, until I find the letter. A letter that sends me on a journey to deliver a magical item to the group of people that have been villainized over the years, the letter that challenges everything I thought I knew. But which side is on the side of good? How can I break out of the only world I have ever known? Should I join the heroic villains or the villanous hero? I have finally gotten the adventure I always needed, but not exactly the one I wanted.
Note: This game was created for Camelon's break contest. During the part where a specialist is assigned to the breakers, there are three different paths (Lawbreaker, Breaker of People and Breaker and Enterer). Due to time constraints, for those who would like to know, Breaker of People is the longest path, followed by Lawbreaker and Breaker and Enterer, but aside from the epilogues, it all leads to the same chapter 5. As before, feel free to comment or message me if you encounter any issues or problems that I should fix.
"The delicate balance between the dream world and the real world is disrupted. You intruded and messed up the dream of an innocent. By talking about this with an Unknowing, the possibility of the dreamstage being unveiled is now greater than ever. The Jury has made a decision - we have no choice but to send you to The Jungle..."
Life was hard, balancing work and relaxation. Then the nightmares came, and all I ever wanted was to be free of them. Yet, I never accounted for this - finding out the truth about the dream world, exploring the vast plane of the imagination...only to be whisked away to the longest nightmare ever.
Think a jungle's bad? Try a fictional jungle, where literally anything can happen, and the most creative minds have conspired to give you a hard time.
Note: This game was created for Mizal's 'Welcome to the Jungle' contest. There are several epilogues, and while the main one is the normal Dreamtruder path, others include Dream director, Dreamcaster, Dreamediator, and Dreamhero. Fancy a challenge? Try completing the Jungle challenge without picking up any dreampowers - it's possible, but requires a bit of thinking and planning ahead. Also, for some items, click the 'use' button as a link would not be provided (if this is the case, it would be specified in the object description)
Since this would be my first published storygame, I am still relatively new to this. Feel free to message me or spam the comments if you encounter any issues, have any suggestions for improvement, or just have something you want to say.

I initially wasn't planning to join this contest due to my lack of ideas and wanting to take a short break from writing during the holidays. However, after being hit by inspiration a few days ago, I was unable to stop myself from creating a storygame which happened to fit the genre of this contest. While there may only be less than a week to write, I am slightly encouraged by the fact that some people have not written much either, so I will officially announce my intent to join the dark fantasy contest. My storygame would be a lot shorter than Breaker and Dreamtruder, but I certainly hope it would be good enough for this contest.

@FemaleWolverine, I may be wrong but I think you're replying to yourself because you click 'reply' to the latest post in the thread. (Either that, or you're not in threaded view). The best thing to do when using the forums is to click 'reply' on the message of the person you want to reply to, not the most recent message in the thread. Hope this helps.

Thank you, Mizal! I'm currently working on some storygames and I also plan to publish more in the near future. Perhaps I should change my resolution to that instead.

Thank you so much! That really made my day, especially coming from a talented writer like you.
(100 word stories) Just a short thing on the spot on 1/1/2021 9:53:26 PM
I wrote this some time ago and adjusted it to fit the word count:
I watched as my friends walked up to the Villain. From the confines of my prison, my heart swelled with pride. Then I sensed it before it happened. The way the Villain acted, the familiarity of the situation...
Alas, they attacked, heedless of my anguished cries. One by one they fell, motionless, dead. I realized my fists were pounding against the barrier, tears streaming from my eyes. I could stand it no longer.
I flung a chair at the transparent wall and heard the barrier crack.
Mum entered the room to see me sobbing next to our broken television.

Happy belated new year! My resolution on this site would be to refine my writing skills and maybe even experiment with writing storygames in different genres and styles. This is, of course, assuming I do better with this year's resolution than I did with my resolutions of the past few years.

Waking up to this on Christmas morning really made my day! This is truly spectacular.
