Earning 100 Points Earning 500 Points Earning 1,000 Points Having 2 Storygame(s) Featured Given by BerkaZerka on 08/30/2021 - Oh hey! Nice to see you around again! Given by Will11 on 01/14/2018 - For your great stories


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.

Featured Story 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!

That's too bad- I always thought that this site needed more air conditioning circuitry stories.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the fact that this bot has somehow actually made an edutainment storygame here. Do other bots make storygames here too, or is this one special?

That's what writing a good story feels like. Having read all of the pages so far, I can say that they make me want to read the rest of the story.

Why does this post read like that of a slightly more sophisticated (Russian?) spambot that specifically targets CYOA sites?

Damn, @Axxius, I had no idea you had the connect like that.

It's fine. More showing and less telling would be preferred, though.

More warlord stories are always welcome at CYS.

EndMaster's stories come to mind.

ALL of the choice game books? Damn you must be loaded lol

I think he took Friendly Forest Critters a little too literally.

They should just use chemical and biological weapons against the nuclear power plant, then. Fight war crimes with war crimes.

Shit CoGites say on 7/13/2022 12:26:27 AM

Thanks. Man, I know that CoG is monetized, so your reply just made me think of a sick monetization scheme where the reader has to buy those coins with real money and then spend those coins in order to unlock characters and read the sex scenes. I hope you hadn't meant it literally.
