I've been active since 2020, the same year I discovered that the few Goosebumps CYOAs I read back in the day still had living virtual counterparts. It turns out they're really fun to read, and much more inviting to write than a solid, traditional book for an amateur like myself.



Other than playing storygames, I like to do digital drawings (which are now decent) and improve the site code. I hope to make a magnum opus here someday.

The Razing of Nipthm
You live a small farming life on Nipthm, a planet of scrublands and grasslands. Trouble heads your way, and it's bringing a mortal danger you can't avoid. United Space doesn't bother trying to protect the outer worlds. You're on your own.

This is a story for Endmaster's Manifest Destiny contest. It was made in such a short period of time I wouldn't have normally been allowed to publish it (2 days). Hopefully it's entertaining, and I didn't make too many errors. Enjoy!

Don't copy me. I am a very unique individual.

Favoriting games is some effort and the site already tracks popularity with storygame ratings, so it's not too important. As for saves, I don't know if most stories get enough traffic to make any use of that, given a lot of them hover around 50 ratings total. Having game saves be accessible from the storygame is a good idea and a good low priority thing to think about after everything else is done.

smart, because that was an obvious trap.

Yep. They should've changed to /story/ everywhere in the code, but then again, CYS

It's there and anywhere else /game/? was written in the source code. There are some permanent redirects that change it to /story/ and basically nobody else touched the code, so I had to break it somehow, just need to figure out where and fix it.

I tested this to make sure it works in local changes. I'll push some of these to the site later. All that trouble just because the source code lazily checked only for Site Admin and not Article Admin, sigh.

Best I can do is probably look at whatever CYSCE did and do something there, because a robust solution would need lots of problem solving to deal with reversing arbitrary code and so on. I haven't looked into anything related to the storygame engine, but there's a lot of other site things to work on before frying this one, so I'll just leave this in limbo.
