I'm an undergraduate at Oriel College, Oxford reading Computer Science & Philosophy. Despite being a mathematician in the public eye, behind closed doors I transform into an avid reader. I also do the occasional spot of writing, but have always been much better at poetry (and descriptive writing) than narrative writing. Also I'm an English gent, and therefore speak English (UK) so please forgive me in advance if I inadvertently offend any Americans/Canadians with my vocabulary.

Feel free to PM/duel me at any time. I'm mainly here to read stories/games, but may actually put up some work on the site from time to time.

Dungeon Stompage Released! on 1/29/2018 4:25:41 PM

I'm not sure if you're aware, but this game was actually released ~5 years ago :D

This thread's just been necro'd.

I'm 18 (and was when I joined a couple of months ago).

That said, I believe I was around 15 when I started reading the stories on this site. I always loved "choose your path" type stories (the number of different names this category is given is astonishing) from an early age. I found DMW (and this site) after I read a book called "Blood of the Zombies", and craved more of it. DMW was definitely the best online zombie choose your adventure I found, along with a couple of other good ones like "Zombie Exodus".

All courses of action seem equally futile, so let's pick the most bizarre one!

Yep, I find the same thing happens when trying to make certain requests on the site at particular times. I just think the database structure is poorly designed.

Hi there :)

Since you're a programmer I'll have no doubt you'll be thoroughly underwhelmed by "scripting" capabilities of the advanced editor.

Reminds me of a guy I knew who was convinced Facebook was deleting his friends...

Hey. As I'm sure someone else has already said, rating stories is a good way to get points quickly (particularly short/rubbish ones!)
