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!

There are three closed boxes- the first labeled "black", the second labeled "brown", and the last labeled "blond", each containing one strand of hair inside of it. One of the three strands of hair is black, one is brown, and one is blond. Unfortunately, the labels on the boxes are all incorrectly matched to the color of the strand of hair inside of it, and you cannot see what color the strand of hair is without opening the box. How can you rearrange the labels so that each strand of hair is matched with the correct label on its box after opening just one of the boxes?

You have two ropes and a lighter. Each rope takes exactly one hour to burn up, but they do not burn at a constant speed (meaning that cutting one in half will not necessarily guarantee 30 minutes of burn time). Using only these tools, how can you tell when exactly 45 minutes has passed?
