urnam0, The Apprentice Scrivener
My favorite online CYOA games are The Paradox Factor, Ground Zero, Necromancer, and The Devil's Fire.
"I bring ... death! How dare you try and give me life?"
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.
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.
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!

Charlie Rose is the latest exposed predator. That was unexpected.

My money's on George R. R. Martin being next. There has to be a reason why it's taken him so long to finish ASOIAF.

If you want to get around people lying about their age, perhaps you can ask new members questions that demonstrate a measure of maturity and/or literary ability that must be answered correctly in order to join the site (or else be locked out of the site for a year or something), like:
Though America financed and built the pedestal on which the Statue of Liberty stands, the statue itself was a gift from France. In this way the complete work, much like the United States, is a product of both American and French contributions. At one time America was ruled by the British. The founding fathers of America chose to fight against Great Britain for the independence of their country. France supported America by providing money, men, and weapons of war. Had it not been for French contributions during the Revolutionary War, America would not exist in the way that it does today; therefore, it is quite fitting that the Statue of Liberty, which represents freedom, came to being by a joint American and French effort. On October 28th, 1886, just over one-hundred years after America declared its independence from Great Britain, the Statue of Liberty was completed and dedicated by its designer, Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi.
Which choice best expresses the main idea of the paragraph?
a. France assisted the United States in the Revolutionary War.
b. The statue was a joint effort between France and the U.S. just like U.S. independence.
c. The U.S. was once a colony of Great Britain.
d. The statue of liberty was dedicated 100 years after America declared its independence.
Write the following as an expression: 3 less than the triple of x
a. 3x + 3
b. 3x - 3
c. 3 - 3x
d. 3 - x

If you could start up your own restaurant... on 6/9/2016 10:35:45 PM
A food stand named Uncle Z's Snack Shack that sells SPAMwiches (grilled SPAM slices on small sandwich rolls, fried eggs optional), hot dogs, soft pretzels, and scallion pancakes, all made fresh and hot on the griddle. The idea is that the griddle is all that I need to cook on, and the offered items are all favorite flat griddle-cooked items of mine. The items are all snack items selling for low prices to attract high customer volume, but many people will buy more than one item, and drinks will be a relatively high-margin offering.
