venyanwarrior, The Wordsmith
Back again as of February 2021.
I plan to actually write passable stories this time and not kindergardener garbage in 5 mins.
In the year 3487, universal tensions are high. The Zond Collective is a race of bugs that have the goal of ruling the universe. When a breach is detected at the edge of the universe, a small Human Empire task force is sent to investigate before the Zond can get there. (Cliché ending sentence incoming...) Can you survive?
This is a game where you guess the historical inaccuracy!
There are 15 questions, and each one you get right gets you a point. However, for every one you get wrong, you lose a point. That means you can get negative points. Good luck!
(Updated 6/4/2019) Added two questions and more facts.
(Updated 6/5/2019) Added three more questions with facts, and added hints as well.
(Updated 9/11/2019) Fixed spelling and grammar issues.
(Updated 9/12/2019) Added a single question because I'm lazy.
(Updated 9/13/2019) Fixed variables because I was a lazy bum.
This is a quiz about speedrunning.
What is speedrunning? Take a look at this quote from Simple Wikipedia.
A speedrun is a play-through, or a recording of this play-through of a whole video game or a part of it. The player tries to complete this game as fast as possible. This is done for entertainment and competition. The term is a compound of the words speed and run (run means playing the game here). It is usually used for games which do not have quickly finishing them as one of the main goals.
In this storygame, you learn how to be a spy.
This is a quiz about Rush's epic 8-part song, 2112.
This storygame is in the perspective of a young Indian warrior as the invading and land-grabbing Americans decide they want you out.
(This storygame is an accurate account of the major battles between Indians and Americans on the great plains.)
NOTE: This storygame contains brutal things like scalping, so don't read if you're a bit squeamish.
Operation Bodenplatte was the last main attack on Allied air bases by Nazi Germany's air force, the Luftwaffe. Bodenplatte took place on January 1st, 1945, and dealt a major blow to the already crippled Luftwaffe. This storygame will focus mainly on the attack on the USAAF's (United States Army Air Force) airbase in Asch, Y-29. It was the most notable due to the sheer number of Nazi aircraft shot down. You can either join the Luftwaffe air wing JG 11, who were flying Fw 190A-8's, or the USAAF's P-47 Thunderbolts or P-51 Mustangs.

My personal top 7:
7. Betrayal at the House on the Hill.
Okay, basically you and some other people roam a cool mansion and find stuff. At some point there's a 'haunt' where something happens. It can range from the mansion being filled with a shit ton of deadly acid goo, (Anyone remember that old movie 'The Blob'?) to a literal Demonic Invasion. It's pretty cool.
6. 7 Wonders.
The goal of the game is to get the most points at the end. You do this by doing things during each age. You can also build a wonder of the world for a shit ton of points, hence the name.
5. Exploding Kittens.
This is more of a game for 5 year olds but what the hell, it's fun as shit. You try not to get killed by exploding kittens with various cards and shit. It's fun. There's also an Imploding Kittens expansion, which comes with a nice cone of shame if you forget which way the flow of play is going.
4. Settlers of Catan.
Simple, long, and fun. Basically you settle on land and try to get rich. You can trade with other settlements for stuff, you can open of a port to trade for stuff, ect.
Okay, top 3.
3. Disney Villainous.
Relatively complicated, fun, and both expansions can be played as their own separate games. In the game you play as a Disney villain and try to complete a certain objective. For example, Captain Hook has to defeat Peter Pan at the Jolly Roger, Maleficent has to have a curse at each location, Prince John has to get a fuckton of money, ect. Basically everything's villain specific, and it's pretty fun.
2. Ticket to Ride.
Stupidly simple, incredibly fun. This game is super ease to learn, and can take a while, but it's really rewarding. Also, there are a few variations like a Europe edition, one for kids, ect.
1. Portal: The Uncooperative Cake Acquisition Game.
This. Game. Man, is it fun. The flow of play can be disrupted really quickly, and the fun just never stops. You play as Bendys trying to get the most cake on the board when the game ends. There's also turrets, Companion cubes, and a lot of in-depth strategy in a game that looks deceptively simple.
Alright, that's my top 7.

Convince me that a racing game is good and I'll add it to the list.
For extra points, give me a time on a track from that game, and I'll do something (Idk what to do but I'll think of something I guess).
Double extra points if you present a video of your time, too.
My list of cool Racing Games:
Every Mario Kart game
All the Forza games, Motorsport and Horizon

Yes, I am good at squeezing in tight spaces and driving fake cars fast. I'm the next Bear Grills!

I'm skinny, I'm not good for calories.
Poll: Vault CYS on 10/15/2019 3:54:08 PM
Nah, I got a few hazmat suits in my closet(don't ask) and some noise-canceling headphones. I'm good.
Poll: Vault CYS on 10/15/2019 3:40:27 PM
Alright.... people who I'll take with me to a bunker and the apocalypse... ok!
I know little about these people so here goes:
1). EndMaster because he's probably got some demonic ritual shit going on and we need protection from cultists
2). Cricket because... cricket
3). Ogre11 because Ogres are fat and good for calories
4). 3J because we need someone who can rain down things from the sky or some shit (idk lol)
5). Avery_ Moore because she makes face emoticons on the forums
My reasons are absolutely sound and need no questioning. Move along.

Yeah, for me melatonin works wonders for going to sleep two hours earlier than I normally would.
