Hello all! This thread is going to be more of an experiment over anything else…
This will be a RPG story along the lines of the old CYOA books but the choices made will be submitted and voted on by the community rather than predetermined page turns. I hope I’m in the right area of the forums for this.
I’d like to keep the rules short and simple:
No excessively vulgar commands
No completely random/pointless things like “Make the hero pull his pants down” or something.
Try to be as specific as you need to be, for example don’t say “Go over there” instead of “Go towards the blacksmith”.
Earlier/unimportant choices will probably be first come first serve, while more important decisions will probably be voted on.
With that in mind, let’s begin!
Book 1, Chapter 1 "The New Journey"
You are a simple hearthling living in the small town of South Riverton, population 100. While the neighbors are friendly and the town ever expanding, you grow bored of the small town live and began saving up gold for passage to the big city. The day you had decided to ride the carriage to the next city over, however, was the one that changed your life forever. The entire city had gathered in the town square, women were panicking and the men had serious expressions strewn about their faces. You couldn’t help but to ask around to see what the commotion was all about. After gathering a tidbit of information from one person or another, you find out that a large tower had appeared several miles away from the town. Yes, appeared as in ‘from thin air’. Surely someone of great power must reside in that tower, some said, or perhaps it is an invasion from another realm, claimed others. You decide this would be your ticket to an adventure, not just to a big city, but perhaps to places never before seen! You gather what few possessions you have and stand in the town square, and consider you may want to buy some supplies before leaving…
Current possessions: Knapsack, 1000 golden coins
Current equipment: Simple clothes (Cloth), Simple knife
