Some people like to call me Jester.
You wake up in the middle of the forest at night, with no memory of how you got there. All you have is a backpack full of Cheez-Its and other essential supplies, along your own wits to help you on your way. As you explore this strange land, you'll find things you never knew could exist, (at least, not that you can remember). You'll meet strange creatures, some friend, others not, and maybe, just maybe, recover your lost memories...
My (rather rushed), entry for the Lone Hero contest. I'll be the first to admit that not all the endings will make you any sort of hero, lone or otherwise, (mainly the ones where you run away from just about every source of conflict, and/or die). But if you're brave enough to do what you think is right, even though it may result in your untimely demise, you may just make yourself a hero yet. In that light, I guess you could say you're a reluctant Lone Hero.
While each route of this story can be understood to some degree on it's own, it is important to play every branch to fully understand the greater story that's being told. I have no intention of revealing everything on the first play through, you'll have to take the time to explore everything to learn all it's secrets.
By the way, on the off chance that you find any glitches or bugs, please tell me. I'd like to know so I can fix them.

This kinda makes me think about all the times I've thought, "one day, I want to be just as good as [insert any writer from above list]." But now I'm not so sure. Come to think of it, it seems like a lot of famous people turn out to be complete assholes in real life. Either being a terrible person drastically increases one's likelihood of achieving fame, or there are just a lot more bad seeds out there than I thought.

I once ate ice cream with a fork. Surprisingly enough, it's actually a lot easier so long as you finish it quickly enough. If you really want to get the melted stuff at the end, you can just drink it straight out of the bowl instead of spending fifteen minutes taking baby scoops with a spoon. But I've never cared for melted ice cream anyways, so maybe that's just me.

Well you see, communism is only cool if it doesn't affect me. Right now, sharing with other people would mean I have less money to spend on wild parties for my friends. But if the government implements communism, poverty will just magically go away. All they'd have to do is print more money, then hand it out to the people who need it most. That way, everyone can just go out and buy fancy houses and cars like me. Or better yet, let's just make everything free! I'm sure someone will still be willing to manufacture my 92 inch flat screen T.V.'s, hippie health food, and LSD supply. The small foreign children who make those things will be perfectly happy spending sixteen hours a day, seven days a week making my stuff even after their 25 cents a day paycheck becomes worthless under the new world order. Surely they wouldn't be doing that unless menial grunt work was their passion. But we all know the government will never make the switch, because they're just a bunch of selfish idiots who don't know anything about the economy. That's why I'm calling for anarchy, so everyone can be rich, happy, and free.

This just sounds like the police, but rebranded In an attempt to make the people calling for anarchy feel better without actually changing anything. I mean, the police are already made up of people who do all the things these new units will be doing. I guess disarming the people directing traffic makes sense, but other than that it seems like more of the same.
But hey, if it gets the people calling for the abolition of all law enforcement to shut up, fine by me.

Well, you've got three basic categories here: the true noobs, the lurkers, and the specials. True noobs are wild cards, because we don't have much of an idea of their skills. They could be professional writers, or twelve year olds with chosen one mentalities. The lurkers have been here quite some time and still haven't finished anything. On one hand, they have a pre-established pattern of failure, but on the other, they could have more experience than the true noobs. And the specials are the ones Mizal let join despite not technically meeting the requirements. I'll let you draw your own conclusions about them.
Now, my question is, are we betting on who's going to come through and finish something, or who's going to win?

I was wondering about that myself, and I kinda think it could be because a lot of these guys were just intimidated by some of the normal contests on this site. Having a contest just for noobs takes some of the edge off, creating the illusion that there's nowhere to go but up. That's completely false, of course. There are plenty worse things than being an unknown, but they don't know that yet.

That makes sense I suppose. Well, best of luck.
