                       ENDMASTER'S PROMPT CONTEST

      Image

Deadline: 11:59 PM (EST) July 4th, 2022

Reward: You’ll get what you get and you’ll like it.

It’s probably about time to have another contest again, but to make it easy we’re going to have another prompt based one so you slugs can choose which topic to write about and then inevitably flake out on.

So if you’re joining, obviously pick one of the following prompts provided below and lock your post.

Joining the contest but failing to pick a prompt (Like fucking around like a retard posting in the thread saying you're "thinking about" joining the contest) will result in a random one still available being picked for you that you might not like so you probably shouldn’t do this bad thing. (And if you do, definitely don't whine like a faggot about it.)

Finally, when you’re done with your story, post a link to it in this thread.

That’s about it for now, unless I think of something else to add or change as needed.

Good luck.

THE PROMPTS

1) A story where the protagonist is a devout religious missionary. (Mystery Contestant)

2) A story where the protagonist is an explorer, treasure hunter, or archaeologist exploring some recently uncovered ancient ruins, which may contain traps, treasure, or paradigm-altering discoveries. Can take place on earth or in a fictional world. (Axxius)

3) A story that uses time travel or temporal mechanics as a game mechanic or major driving force. (GigglyCactus)

21) A story where you wake up one morning and everyone insists that you've been living for years with a certain family member, friend, or pet. Only you know for a fact you have no memory of them ever existing. What is going on here? (EvangelineV)

22) A story about an aspiring medical student traveling to a foreign land to study at a renowned hospital. The plague draws near. (Paradox_4) DONE

23) A story where a mad scientist has just created a new ... animal? species? creature? race? Whatever it is, she has an army of them, and things aren't ever going to be the same. (elad771)

24) A story set in the ancient world. This means anytime before the fall of the Roman Empire. And yes, if you don't want to strictly be historical, you can fill it with Atlantean technology or whatever. (Corgi213)

25) A story set in the Wild West. And once again yes, if you don't want to strictly adhere to proper history, you can fill it with "weird west" shit. (Tim36D)

27) A story with a kobold protagonist (Mizal)

28) A PROPER story about a creepy restaurant. (WizzyCat)

Hello It's me again, Unlike last time I will not randomly post in this thread and be entered in. I have been thinking about this for a while ( aka 3 minutes) and now that high school is almost over I would like to be writing again for fun... But like last time I will ask if I can drag either Stargirl or olivsalid10 down with me. (If that is okay with you, and if not then im screwed). So before I change my mind on a life long commitment I would like to take number 19... Thanks again for putting up with my shit!

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

Is it possible to switch to 31?  I have a half finished story from the last contest about the Arthurian legends with time traveling merlin and shit. That's why I chose 3 initially, but 31 could work as well.

Actually, if I expand on a story I started before, would it still qualify? If it doesn't, would it still help me climb out of the shame pit?

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

Can't switch out once locked in (despite a few messing about with the posts recently)

I got a excellent idea for 18, that is if I wasn't retarded with my storytelling. I bet a person with a short-attention span would be able to read my entry perfectly, and still get bored on how uninteresting my stories are.

But I may as well, so try not to get ready for the most odd empire in the world.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

Short attention span? Perfect for the average reader then.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

You know, I've never entered an official contest here before, and I've barely even done ANY writing of stories, so I think now would be a good time since I'm fueling myself with pure defiance.

It's been pointed out that this contest with its ridiculous number of entrants also marks the...21st anniversary of CYS? Or right around there somewhere. Congrats everyone, the site is now old enough to drink, unlike half its members.

Is there any way to figure out how many words are in story without counting EVERY SINGLE WORD?

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

Hover your mouse over the play length and you should see your word count. 

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

Thanks! I’m glad I don’t have to count EVERY SINGLE WORD.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

one month ago

That method is actually pretty unreliable as it only gives an approximation and since it was made in the dark ages of the internet by a homosexual Canadian man it is pretty outdated and inaccurate. I'm afraid if you want to know for sure you will have to count out word by word.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

That last lonely prompt about the dark web seems like it could be easily incorporated into a cyberpunk or other sci fi thing if people just aren't feeling anything related to the real one.

Just to confirm -- did you want 25 quality stories, or just 25 completed entries that will all be taken down after the judging is over?

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

I'm gonna be honest, I'm aiming for "completed entires that'll be taken down." Knowing myself, I can't trust I'll make a quality story that people will love forever.

Alright, 50 contestants. That seems like a good stopping point, no need to keep adding prompts.

Good luck again everyone. Ninja's not in this contest, so it'll be a fair fight for the most part.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

one month ago

I was hoping he would enter this time around. I'll have to catch him in another one I guess. 

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

one month ago
I think one of the keys to Ninja's success actually is that he just rolls out one feature worthy story after another without concerning himself with other people's personal pissing contests or anything weird like that.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

one month ago

Yeah I could definitely learn from him there. 

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

Whatever happend to your short story duels

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

The idea was axed in favor of the Agreena. Which was good too. 

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

one month ago
It'll be a long time before I join a contest, personal pissing or otherwise. And even then, my story would probably be something like Degenerate 2.0 or Sterling X, where I could sit back and relax and type a few F-bombs and maybe say cunt once or twice as sort of a palate cleanser between serious projects. The stuff I want to complete can't be fit into two months of writing, which I'm still doing by the way, waking up before 6am daily come rain or shine--thwarted only by those nasty hangovers. But yeah, I don't give a shit about writer or site feuds. I just want to read and write good stories.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

one month ago

Damn, missed this one.

If you add one about the afterlife, I'll give you something for the Grimdark Fantasy section, since it's a little sparse. Something I'll actually put effort in, rather than wait till the due date like usual.

If not, I'll just flesh out the idea and publish whenever.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

Something about the afterlife eh? Hm, I'd say being a zombie is about the afterlife.

You're locked in for 10 and Royal Ghost is banned. (Again)

Lol.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

one month ago
Well that's going to throw out the idea I had, but I'll make it work.

Actually, maybe not. The plan was for you to be dead, and there was to be several mythical creatures, including zombies. Yes. I think I can do it. It will have to be a sentient zombie though, or else you won't be able to make choices. Yes, I think this can work...

Sorry for getting you banned, Royal Ghost.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

Well I know how it goes around here, everyone waiting until the last minute to turn something in, so I don't actually expect most, if ANY of you have anything near completion yet.

In fact the only two people I know of who have been working pretty steadily on their prompts and that's Celicni and Paradox.

That's right, a Serbian and a CoGite.

If you lot allow the likes of those two show you up, you fucktards certainly deserve the SHAME pit.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

It's a little eerie how silent the forums get when everyone is busy actually writing. (Although I know IRL summertime stuff is a factor too, this is typically a quieter time anyhow.)

With the sheer number of stories being written for this we're going to need to put a list of the final entries all in a pinned thread and do some kind of review encouragement initiative. Not so much an issue if people staggered out earlier releases to spend some time on the New Stories list outside the last minute deluge, but we all know how that's gonna be.

Embrace the glory of the RTE. It makes it incredibly easy linking shit, with a simple button click:

Here's the link to your story.

Either way just to make it easier for anybody that will make a full list of prompts => stories, his prompt was:

12) A story centering on an unusual mirror.

He's already using the RTE.

Anyway, direct links are increasingly unnecessary since for anyone reading it's just a matter of right clicking or holding down on the URL a second.

What to do when the storygame title is already taken? I want to call it Jungle Boy, and I have searched for the game of this title and it doesn't exist, but I am still blocked.

The game exists, it's just unpublished. (private in the author's profile.) But you know what? Looking at it, I think you might as well have it. Just give me a few minutes.

The title is now free, you're welcome. And here for the historical archives, the original Jungle Boy in all its glory: Enfeite, I'll even do you one further here. If you can show up in time for the deadline with a storygame that gets a rating of at least 3.0, I'll let you have allll the points from the original author's account. That's 17 years of birthday bonuses, a point from rating one game, and 3 points from when they created this one.

Please do. I desperately want to see you succeed against all odds.

Create your storygame now as there's a 48 hour delay after creation before you can publish it.

Best of luck.

Wow.  Baller move entering contest first day on site with less than 2 weeks to go.

Now I must really get to work so that I dont end up in SHAME pit before some super newb who just entered.

Definitely possible for him to succeed. Cel as a noob managed to submit something in a short period of time and he placed pretty high in a contest.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

I definitely believe he can, and it is admirable for him to go after it.  I wasn't intending for my statement come across like I was saying he was overreaching, but rather that it is a hardcore confident approach.  Honestly, wish I had more of that mindset with my own writing.

Here's my entry for the contest:

What a terrible world.

My prompt was 29) A story where world just keeps kicking you in the tender bits. Your house burns down. Your daughter dies of disease. Your spouse runs off with a soldier. Things can't seem to get worse, so you head to a tavern in downtown to drink away the last of your money before you hang yourself. Only . . .something worse happens and shit is about to get real.

A big thank you to anybody that has assisted me in any way with the creation of the story (usually when it comes to grammar), no matter how much or how little they did.

That might be the most early entries ever. Of course the number in the contest might be the cause of that one.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

Can we get some of those fancy stats of yours, with the expected amount of entries total, based on the previous contests?

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

2 days ago
Honestly, the numbers have moved it and moderated over time. Right now, based on all the contests since some time when I started tracking these (2015?), the average completion rate is 50.43%

So based on 50 entries, we should expect a fully 25 completed and submitted stories.

I didn't try to evaluate "quality" stories, though maybe I should have. With a contest of this size, I'd only bet on a over/under of about 22.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

yesterday

"Quality" is subjective I guess, but a good stat to keep track of would have been "entries that remain on the site after being judged"/"total entries".

Aka how many people, on average, submit something only to not get shamed, rather than putting in the effort for a proper story.

The Demon of Hurtgen

my prompt was - 22) A story about an aspiring medical student traveling to a foreign land to study at a renowned hospital. The plague draws near.

I fucked up....

You submitted something. That's at least half a step above the shame pit

....mercy, please.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

Technically you're already getting mercy by not getting SHAMED anyway. In the past there was at least one person who didn't meet the minimum site standards and got thrown in the pit.

However...

Because I find you and especially this particular fuck up so amusing, you're going to avoid SHAME since you at least submitted something.

Also you were representing your ENTIRE KAE community with your entry, so by proving your incompetence you also proved the superiority of our community's way of life. I figure your own people can SHAME you (if they so desire) better than we could for doing this to them. Lol

You'll still have to endure the mockery of CYStians though. No stopping that.

... Are you saying this is finished, or?

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

Well for the contest purposes, "it's finished"

But he mentioned he's going to do the branching later lol.

EndMaster's Prompt Contest

yesterday

I was gonna say, I can't tell if wandering into an interactive fiction-type contest out of literally nowhere and then just submitting an 11,000-word normal story is the most based move I've ever seen, or actually pathological behavior. But I guess if choices are being added at some point before the deadline

He can't edit it until after judging now that it's published.

Ogre is number 5.

As much I would like to throw you all into the SHAME pit, I also wouldn't mind seeing a higher than average turn out.

This is the biggest CYS contest we've ever had so far, and there can be no greater glory than to WIN this contest by beating the chicken soup out of all your other opponents.

Remember who you are. YOU are a CYStian (except for Paradox lol), YOU are better than any CoGite or IFaggot (Yes, even Ace).

While the perpetually triggered faggots have their little contests where they all circle jerk each other based on how gay and depressed a game was, WE have our own contests BASED on pure talent. (And with blackjack and hookers)

Arise from your natural slothful status and put forth that extra effort that I KNOW you all can.

Succeed and ETERNAL life awaits you.

Fail and you shall be cast down into the SHAME pit with the sodomites.

The deadline has been extended ONE DAY more.

Some might say that the "different" main endings are a contrived mess that I rushed out after realising I haven't got any free time this weekend. This is nothing but slander.

Number 6!

I was going to say whatever happens, you got yourself out of the SHAME pit, but upon checking you were already out of it from before.

So you've continued to keep yourself out of it, which is still a worthwhile endeavor.
