Earning 100 Points Earning 500 Points Earning 1,000 Points Having 1 Storygame(s) Featured Given by BerkaZerka on 08/30/2021 - Oh hey! Nice to see you around again! Given by Will11 on 01/14/2018 - For your great stories


The Flame

An allegory.


Author's note: the title of this story is actually The Fire, but someone else already created a storygame with that title, so I couldn't give it the title that I wanted. My second choice for the title was The Light, but another person already took that title as well, so, if you don't mind, just pretend that the title of this story is The Fire.

Warlords: Strategic Conquest

A story set in medieval China.

Note: Even early on in the game you can lose by making a strategically erroneous choice so choose carefully.

Featured Story Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?


My interpretation of one of my favorite TV shows from childhood: Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? This work is primarily based on the TV game show version rather than the computer game, book, or cartoon versions.

Author's note: Please do not cheat by using the Back button- just remember to Save the game every time you're promoted and Restore if you happen to lose.


P.S. See if you can find all the Easter Eggs!

Corgi vs Fem - Vote! on 10/13/2021 12:53:02 AM

I enjoyed the second story more, but I almost want to vote for the first story just to see the fallout...

Aww, too bad.

Corgi vs Fem - Round 2 on 10/8/2021 9:27:57 AM

Might I suggest a site-wide battle royale writing competition (after this match is done, of course) with seeds and brackets like the NCAA tournament, with these sort of 1v1 battles until one writer is left the winner, and no-shows automatically losing their matchup? It might be a fun and interesting diversion from the usual contests. All of the entrants would have to stay anonymous to the judges until the final winner has been declared, though.

Have you completed all of the Delight Games stories? I recommend Zombie High as the best of the collection.

Choosing the last mini-arcs on 8/4/2021 9:53:17 AM

You should just write the arcs that you are the most passionate about. I don't know what the mechanics of your story are and which arcs would fit best with them, if there are battles, military decisions, etc. or whatnot, but, from what I know about your story and my perspective, I would rank them: store, entrance hall, lab, kitchen, back garden, stalls, living room.

If you want to cast magic in this world, you need to use potions. The main ingredient that makes the magic happen is a dark liquid called magical ink which is harvested from ink trees. Drinking potions is a taboo and is considered to be a crime that warrants a death sentence.

Does everyone who casts magic in this world commit a crime? Is there any way to use potions without drinking them?

What are you watching? on 5/31/2021 7:01:02 PM

There was a well-received online animated series named Primal War on Newgrounds from the mid-2000's. I don't know if the Adult Swim TV show was inspired by it or what.

If you are looking to get out of this situation, then my advice would be to find allies whom you can trust to help you get out of this situation and ask them to help you.
