>>63391970Whatever happened to that cyoa you made where you were in the middle of an explosion that tears a hole into other dimensions, and then a general asks you to make alliances with the other worlds on the other side of the portal
>>63392154I didn't make that CYOA, so I have no idea.
>>63392136Magic space war, it's NSFW.
>>63391970You’re probably my favorite cyoa creator tok.
>>63392479Stains, and will be awkward to explain away
>>63392518A lot of fun though. Don’t knock it till you try it.
>>63392532Why not use regular lubricant?
Here's an Ace Combat-like CYOA I really love. Now go and reset this twisted game. Create a world with NO BOUNDARIES. Also, go very fast.
>>63392538That’s like saying if I had colored water, why wouldn’t I just buy a gatorade. One gets the job done a little better, but the other is going to be there either way.
>>63391970>Your Power>Only own The SandmanUm... yay?
>>63392579Point. Still is a dealbreaker, unless you're a hemophiliac.
>>63392568>Create a world with NO BOUNDARIESI just want to be happy

Does anyone have the CYOA of some kind of battle where you have to pick between different factions to join that followed some legendary hero? They're was one faction that worshipped a statue of a fallen Titan, one was a legendary general, and one was the nameless hero or something like that.

The pod I escaped from? Controlled by a fork of me. The alarm sounding? Fork. The coffeemaker immediately below the hole in the ground? Fork. Their guns, HUDs, and personal computers? Fork, fork, fork.It's impossible to truly delete a virus nowadays, much less one with as much adaptability as me.
did we ever get that art gallery
>>63398638>Mockingbird, Genetic Manipulation, Permanent Repairs, Influence NanosThis guy's >>63399129 build would be my first choice but to avoid redundancy I'll be "the Thing". I'm not murder-happy but I'll definitely have some sacrificial forks keep jailers busy as I go into a growth fugue. Hopefully I can rig the microbiota in the environment and my gut into a slime mould analogue. If I'm caught and they don't properly sterilise the site (I'll have consumed evidence of my capabilities) they'll come together to form a rough copy, hopefully closer to escape.
>>63399129Wow. That's pretty gonzo. Sounds like you've got good odds of making it big.As for me, I want to go out as a gee-whiz robo-beast like in those cheap SyFy flicks, but some practicality is needed to last longer than five minutes. Here's my build and gameplan:>Panzer>Universal Interface>Lensing Field>Fusion CoreMy plan is to sneak through the facility, using well-timed invisibility bursts to sneak through security until the alert clears, and gather what information I can about the state of the facility and the outside world. Once I've gathered a reasonable amount of data, I'll plan my next move, whether it be escape, sabotage, distraction, joining the facility controllers, or something else.
>>63398638Panzer>Fusion core>Black skeleton>Permanent repairsI am just going to plug a huge laser cannon or something to myself and desintegrate anything that obstructs my path to escape if i fail i am just going to self destruct and take anything with me
>>63398532Is this scottishanon's first cyoa or something?
>>63399932Stop shilling yourself faggot
We need to exterminate weeb shit.
I have no idea how to balance martials and casters when the latter is supposed to be more powerful than the former. Do I just scrap everything-martial and make it a pure magic cyoa instead?
>>63399676>>Abilities>TeleportationWonder what's the limit on the definition of "solid ground". People's heads? Helicopters? What if I throw a rope and teleport on top of it, does it count as part of the ground if one end is connected to it? So many possibilities...>Spring LoadedI'm more inclined to use this to hop around like a grasshopper.>BladeI become the deadliest cartwheeler.>RedundancyClose-range combat leaves much to be desired in terms of safety.My strategy will be to teleport and hop around the battlefield, slicing enemies as I strafe between them with my blade. Redundancy allows me to last longer in battle in case someone manages to land a hit or two on me.>>Skills>HackingI can finally dox retards on /pol/, build a gun even the /k/ ruski will have to admit the superiority of, and answer any "LONDON" question truthfully.>LeadershipWith this, our battle strength skyrockets with well-utilization.>>Companions>Fatima HadidCan fly, giving me someplace to teleport to aboveground: CheckMultiplies our operational versatility (flight): CheckThe image of her using her abilities (carrying me on her back) is hilarious (and slightly fetishy): CheckCloset nerd: CheckCan bring in airstrikes: CheckOpens the door to Bomberman strategies: CheckTries to understand her lover: CheckHarem route: CheckDoesn't mind either position: CheckHer nickname for me sounds like "Hubby": CheckSeriously, why would anyone not pick her?>Zhou Hao-HanI'm a simple man.

>>63400112If people want to be the martial, let them be the martial.
>>63400112Why are casters "supposed" to be more powerful, exactly? Do explain.
>>63400134It's called common sense
>>63400112>when the latter is supposed to be more powerful than the former*laughs in knight class*fat load of good magic is going to do for you when some dude just turned you into a pulp before you can so much as utter a spell
>>63398638>Eidolon>Genetic Manipulation>Immortality Protocol>Recombiant ModuleThis is now a horror movie.
>>63400112Give martials more companion slots and event choices, or something like that. More social customization. Casters lose out on life but reap the benefits of power.
>>63400165name a mage who can fight hercules
>>63399720>Hypnotist>Workshop>Alchemy Set, Magitek Primer>SectariansCopies speed up production in the workshop considerably. My output has even grabbed the attention of Sect higher-ups. If I can arrange a one-on-one encounter I'll be a step closer to being given their secrets. If my alchemy is up to scratch I'll have a polymorph potion to mask my identity as I bail before initiation into the inner circle (I'm quite attached to my right hemisphere).
>>63400171Haahahaha, butthurt martial fatefaggot spotted. Not everyone adheres to your crap-tier writing and horrendous chuuni themes.
>>63400211you're just mad you don't have a sword
>>63400211>Not everyone adheres to your crap-tier writing and horrendous chuuni themes.casterfags with the negative self awareness
>>63400171>>63400186>b-b-b-but my favorite fiction says something different, y'know
>>63400225the virgin medea and the chad iskander
>>63400112You want balance? You have these options:>Fantastic MartialsCan do super hero-level stuff. Think Wuxia. Martials are just not!casters that use their body and weapons instead of fireballs and spells.>Mundane CastersCan do weak-ass spells mostly. Think cantrips. The more powerful spells are akin to constructing a nuke: Time consuming, can go horribly wrong, super expensive, and takes a lot of skill.>CountersMuch like EMPs are used to combat otherwise unstoppable robots, anti-magic can be used to combat otherwise unstoppable casters. How anti-magic is defined is up to you. You can make it a magic nullifier (equipment or ability), or a school of anti-magic techniques (wizard threw lightning? Use a lightning rod).>Scrap martials as a player optionThe best way to not have people bitch about how their favorite option is underpowered is to not include it in the first place. You'll get one, maybe two autists that just chase you down to the ends of the earth (like the moral-paladin did to Rosanon after cyo/u/ academy), but it's still better than the alternative.
>>63400211Caster v martials is often as autistic in the oppsite direction. The balance varies by setting, there's no "should" unless you decide there is.
>>63400112Make them *martial*, not *mundane*. Maybe they can swing their sword so hard they slice things fifteen feet away from them, or are sneaky enough they can steal spells.

>>63400300youre just wrong, but its an admirable attempt
>>63400319>Except for that sweet magical genetics>so his strengthIm glad you agree hes a martial!
>>63400335>magical martial>true martialPick One.
>>63400225This. It's funny how casters complain about wish-fulfillment and "not realistic" considering what they want.
>>63400346>b-but if I define martial wrong I might have a pointkeka martial is a martial
>>63400323Nah, see, what matters is that Casters *should* be more powerful than Martials. Physical prowess grounded in reality needs not compare to something that's innately unreal, and can do anything.
All you martial/wizard faggots need to go fuck off back to the discord where you can suck each others dicks. Especially you gil. Go back to watching your greek wrestling cyclopses.
>>63400361>Martial who uses magic>"What a fucking failure"
>>63400319In that case, do we count anyone who ever got hit by magic or buffed by magic to be a caster?That would mean that everyone in the world is a caster, yet you made some more powerful than others for no reason. That means your balancing sucks, not "martials".
>>63400371Oh, piss off you insufferable faggot. Make a cyoa about martials being cucked by mages if you care so much. This discussion is irrelevant.
martials and mages should be as strong as the setting requires them to be
>>63400112why are you like this?
You guys literally can't not take bait
I too am of the opinion that a martial using magic is a huge bitch. But it's the only actual way for them to even stand a chance against magic-users, so whatever.
>>63400413It's true :(
>>63400413it's literally the same guys arguing about it again, they even use the same pics
>>63400371>Physical prowess grounded in reality| see you dont know what you are talking aboutbut still, this is quaint>>63400388>uses magicbut he doesenthe is supernatural- but he doesent use magic>>63400413its fun!
>>63400413It's literally just Gil being his regular retarded self. I thought we concluded he was an enormous retard threads ago. Move along.
>>63400477either you vastly over-estimate how much I post or you really do think im the boogiemaneither way im flattered
>>63400474>half god>not magic>this is what martials think
>>63400489>everything supernatural is a caster
>>63400485You're the easiest person to spot, to be quite frank.
>>63400515probably, but that just makes it even more embarrassing when people fail
>>63400508That's not even remotely what he was getting at. You're willingly being an idiot now.
>>63400508>you have to be a caster to be magical>half magical>half human>not magical
>>63400534"hercules is a caster because he is supernatural" is LITERALLY his argument
>>63400558>everything magical is a caster
>>63400563Hercules is -literally- half deity. He's not a caster, but he damn well used magic in his daily excursions of physical capability, from holding up the sky to slaying the lion. Christ.
>Regurgitating the same autistic casters vs martials argumentsThis is why we can't have nice things.Speaking of, when's Holdfast getting an update?
>>63400579christmas, at least.Whoo hoo, something to actually look forward to on 4chan! go team!
>>63400578>but he damn well used magicno, he used his strengthhe is supernatural, but that does not mean that he uses spells
>>63400601Divine, magical strength. Not spells. There's no way in hell you're going to convince me Hercules strength was mundane. Like, you're just not. I think we're done here.
>>63400612>Divine, magical strength>supernatural strength*we know what magical strength is, its the ointment Jason gets to fight the Dragontooth Warriors, its now what hercules has
>>63400601>supernatural =/= magicOh fuck offNobody said he used spells, theyre saying he has magical strength
>>63400632Are you honestly going into semantics now. Good lord.
>>63400112Ehh, sure. Or just don't have balance, but at least let me look like a bad ass fucking knight in shining Armour so i can save a princess or two. Or maybe some orphans.I just wanna be a hero man.
>>63400653>nowthis was semantics from the moment someone claimed that hercules wasnt a martial because he was supernatural>>63400637>he has magical strengthhe has strength. there are plenty of demigods in greek mythology with nothing to show in the way of exceptional strengthhercules is strong because he is strong, its why hes head and shoulders above everyone else- mortal or demigod
Honestly should've just stopped here >>63400246
>>63400699Hercules is strong being he's the fucking son of Zeus. He's a goddamn Demigod. There's nothing mundane about it. You're arguing he's a martial, yes he is, but he's not the kind most /tg/-goers think of when they think of it.
>>63400726Depends on the setting. Among the gods, he's the martiallest martial that ever martialled.
>>63400737>Depends on the settingSure, if you want to have a mythological debate totally outside the current discussion.
>>63400726>but he's not the kind most /tg/-goers think of when they think of it.I wont argue with thatbut thats because they are retarded and assume that martial = mundane, when literally no-one of note in mythology was mundane (obvious hyperbole, but you get the point)>hes strong because hes a demigodhes stronger than every other demigod too, the dude beats up fucking death
>>63400684I can almost guarantee this general would be better off had he just stopped posting.
>>63400750Most caster settings have literally everyone infused with some amount of magic, so arguing that him containing magic makes him "magical" is in bad faith..
>>63400770If you want to cite an individual who surpassed mundane limits whilst being mundane themselves, you best go find someone other than Hercules, someone such as Beowulf.
>>63400814I get what you mean, but you also need to consider they hyperbole.Dropping through an hours worth of seawater to cut off a witches head by himself? with no difficulty or reprecussion?
>>63400813Not even him, but god blooded = magicalKind of retarded not to assume
>>63399685The very same.
>>63400814Beowulf is the reason I added the clause after "literally no one of note in mythology is mundane"theres some others (siegfried, some of the KoTRT and so on) >>63400845he was underwater for like a week AFAIK
>>63400813Most caster settings have borked physics. Fighters jumping ten meters and slaying war Mammoths with their fists is still considered "mundane" in said worlds. Being a half-divine hero? Not very mundane.
>>63400855mores my point, the storyteller was exaggerating or his legend was that big. you can't really take his story seriously as a mundane man unless you admit some shit was exaggerated. not that that is a bad thing, but for this discussion it should be noted.
>>63400884>you can't really take his story seriouslyits mythology, why not?hes mundane and still ripped a giants arms of and shit- thats how mythology works
>>63400855>"literally no one of note in mythology is mundane"Unless, they're, you know, entirely human, use no magic, and just do plain heroic things. Human. Hercules wasn't completely human. Beowulf was.
>>63400903hence the clause, something I mentioned both in the "original post" and the one you replied toyou have mundane regular humans, but there is a far larger abundance of people that are magical in some way or another
the only thing martial cucks can whip out at this point is 'muh mythology' lul
>>63392951Would be nice to see the updated version posted.
>>63400937>a-all they have is the basis of the very basis of the fantasy genre itself and the greatest storytelling tradition in the history of man
>>63400901ehh, i suppose you are right but in context of the "discussion" if he was in any other part of the world he would be hailed as a god blooded. thats what i was pointing to. still cool stories though.>>63400937so? least it's winding down. it's a dumb argument anyway where the only way to win is to not play.or just play paladin.
>>63400937Just goes to show that Casters SHOULD be more powerful than Martials
Is Mega Man out there? I have a request for the archive.
>>63400970>if he was in any other part of the world he would be hailed as a god bloodedpossibly, but he wasnt- he was just a regular dude
>>63401007i already agreed with you. shame he was a barbarian though.
>>63401018I mean, is it?the dude went and beat monsters to death- and that was underwater and with a handicap of a cursed sword
>>63401033Is for me, personal taste says that my ideal hero is a Arthurian knight of the round table without the betrayals. Stout defenders of the faith and people, honorable and diligent to a fault. I got brought up with stories like that, so they became my favorites. It's a shame so few CYOA's fit the bill for shit like that. eternal adventure is one that i know of.
>>63401093thats fair enough
>>63401129What do you consider the ideal fairy tale hero then Anon?the longer we talk the less likely the shitshow starts again

Rins the most likely candidate for an alliance (since shes not aware of her gay feelings) but sakura's passive aggressiveness does allow for an opening. I could just kidnap Sakura some time after she hands off rider to shinji and seduce her. the next step would be to go and beat Shinji up. With a subpar master and a little bit of prep-time we can hold rider long enough for me to throw shinjis stupid book in the toilet. With either of the tohsaka sisters backing me up, berserker should be no problem. 12 labors vs Uomo Universalis and bellaphon and/or too many swords probably works out in my favor.I don't know how I'll take on AUO but hopefully I'll have achieved a threesome with rin and sakura before then.
>>63401181Arthur or the like is probably the best for a fairy tale, Hercules is pretty good, but its a different style of heroismthe Arthurian knights are products of virtue ethics, while the greek heroes are more about classical heroism Hercules doesent work as a fairy tale hero, but hes a great hero
>>63397035Thread was made by tok, I almost missed it myself due to the filter.
>>63401217>herculeseven with dirty anus and worms helping you, da vinci isnt suited to fighting himHerc can literally take Bellerophon and Uomo and keep on trucking

>>63401300>Does davinci even use her NP in the actual f/go story?I think she tried it on Lancelot in Camelot
>>63401297>It's a ye old 'Five Races' CYOA, oh great>elf>dwarf>human>orcwhats the fifth?also, what CYOA?
>>63401181I'm fond of tricksters myself. They still need straight men to be effective so knights in shining armour are appreciated.
>>63401324Midget Halflings most likely.
>>63401297because it's tropes at that point. But if none humans will always be better who cares? It's not a PVP one is it? so just go with what makes you happy. if none of it does, don't play.And the usual drawback of none humans is ostracisation
>>63401297It means the author sucks and/or is a hack. Even in the tropiest of trope settings, AKA D&D, you don't have a race outdoing another.
>>63400165>magic>in fiction>common sense
>>63401395>all races should be balancedhack writing 101 right here
>>63401403Please stop, it was winding down.
>>63401395That's because DnD is one of those 'HUMANITY FUCK YEAH' settings. Be it Forgotten Realms, Dragonlance, or Mystara.
>>63401333of course, classic loki is funny when compared with thor. like when mjolnir was taken by giants and he had to dress up as freya.
>>63401410Races aren't "balanced" in D&D, they receive starting bonuses. Everyone is free to pursue their own path. A level 20th elf Wizard isn't necessarily edging out the level 20th human Wizard.
>>63401253If rins helping that means archers probably there too. So herc is losing half his lives at least.
>>63401410>Race balance>D&DAnon... Orcs are physically stronger than humans, Dwarves make better industry, Elves are innately in-tune with magic. Yet, in the end, even the well-rounded Humans produce the finest knights, the greatest of technological innovations, and the most influential and powerful of wizards.
>>63401474>at leastyou mean possibly, Archer gets bodied by saber within seconds- and saber gets ragdolled by Berzerker like shes nothingbut anyways, 5/6 +1/2 from Umo +1 from Bellerophon =at most 9, which means Herc still wins
>>63401491yes, because "muh jack of all trades" and "muh racial drawbacks"
>>63401511Archer was jobbing to saber because MUH WAIFUWe see what it looks like when he's not holding back in sparks liner high. With two servants backing him up he could probably take more than six lives.
Antimage CYOA when?
>>63401538>We see what it looks like when he's not holding backwhen Cu kicks him all over the placehis last stand in FSN is very much the best of his abilities
>>63401561wrong shitposting anon
>>63401528It's called human ambition and ingenuity. It's been a thing since forever. Ever wondered why, lore-wise, humans barely into their fifties surpass elves centuries into their craft?
>>63401150Best part is how it showcases the skill monkey's superiority>So stealthy he doesn't appear in any WANTED poster, and most other posters>So creative with his skills, he can replicate caster spells and martial might>So majestic, he's the party face>Also the only one that can throw a party>In both senses, yes>Party is a roving band of thugs without him>Party are respectable adventurers with him>Can finish entire questlines without a drop of blood spilled
>>63401491Because Humans are flexible. It is their imagination that sets them apart from the others. Do you think any of the others would look at a caw and go 'I'm going to suck its teat like a new born, and then I'm going to take this milk and sit it until it grows moldy and see what it tastes like'? Humans are unbelievably weird.
>>63401580>Ever wondered why, lore-wise, humans barely into their fifties surpass elves centuries into their craft?because dnd is badly written trash?
>>63401565All he was doing was waiting for medea to get distracted. If he wanted to make a real effort at killing cu he would have invoked UBW
>>63401610Are you perhaps just saying that because you're biased in favor of elves and think they should be the best at magic? Because that's not trash writing, that's an opinion.
>>63401580Remember when Elves were vengeful tree spirits?
>>63401613>he would have invoked UBWhe would have died mid chant, not to mention that even with UBW he cant so much as touch Cu
>>63401645I don't think protection from arrows actually works against stuff with serious conceptual weight. Otherwise cu would have actually killed Gil instead of just fighting for 12 hours
>>63401682>Otherwise cu would have actually killed Gil instead of just fighting for 12 hoursGil has the counter to Cu- Enkidu, a melee binding which allows him to negate PFAEMIYA has nothing of the sort
>>63401645it's anime, talkings a free action
>>63401716im pretty sure theres bad ends where shirou dies while talking
>>63400579I'm working on it. I just killed your cousin.Sorry. :(
>>63401610>hates dnd>makes cyoa that's basically dnd
>>63401769do you think I can arrange a threesome before I die atleast
>>63401891you know im right
>>63401917arranging a threesome when Rider and Rin are involved isnt hardyou could have a bloody five-way
>>63397070>everything you touch quickly decays>wear a gloveI don't think this author understands the concept of touching
>>63401677Towako Ichi but these two pages are only ones
>>63401947I know that I shouldnt make fun of you too much, picking on the mentally handicapped and all
>Wear glove>Rots in your hand>bacteria dies so you also don't have to wash your handsat least you don't have to clean your mistakes
>>63401917Rin, Saber, and Rider are all up for threesomes, Sakura isn't. Or at least Sakura is the one that would need convincing. Medea could be convinced if you got to her before she fell for the teacher, and Illya is probably easier to convince than Sakura. Or at least it's probably easier to get Illya to go from liking you to threesomes, than from how she start out to just liking you.
>>63401297But I take humans most of the time. They always have more skills.
>>63402111My nigger. Everyone calls me boring but I don't care
>>63402060>Medea could be convinced if you got to her before she fell for the teacheronly if you happen to be saber and act in a very specific way
>>63402151Just saying that it's not possible to get her into a threesome, without getting to her early. It might be possible to do it if you aren't saber, but have saber, or at least a saber.
>>63402330>or at least a saber.nah, it has to be seibah, or at least saber lily, it takes more than just a saberface afterall
>>63401580>Ever wondered why, lore-wise, humans barely into their fifties surpass elves centuries into their craft?
Why are martial fags so annoying
>>63398638thought the file said rogue princess and got hype.

>>63400065>>63399932Oi, you ain't Textanon. I'm Textanon, and I'm procrastinating on the waifu gallery by working on a Text-Only CYOA while doing choresI'll shill whoever made this cyoa though. Maybe I'll make one with a similar premise someday. I like what they did with it, just have some other ideas.
>>63402739>Oi, you ain't Textanonnever claimed to be
>>63402833That's... Actually a good point. Someone else implied you were. My bad.
Congrats on shitting up yet another thread. Small wonder authors don't want to post OC with all you spewing feces all over the place from both ends.
>>63403045speak for yourself, there is currently a 300 post thread dedicated to cyoa with minimal shitpostingit just isnt this one
>>63403067That's exactly what I mean. The Yu-gi-oh thread isn't infested by the autistic retards here.
>>63403067Your cyoa stinks faggot
>>63403118Idiot. Should probably raise the posting age to 21 for you.
>>63403126and yet it got the (you)'s
>>63403045>DiscordGilfag suddenly appears >Thread Quality suddenly dropsI wouldn't be surprised if he was the one behind this
I blame this on the fact the thread was made by Tok.
>>63403157Gil is an insufferable mess and everybody hates him, news at eleven.
>>63403177For once this can't be blamed on the cuckold swede since this thread was doing decently until the Discord fag came here
>>63403157>>63403179Feels a bit awkward seeing him slowly get hated on.
>>63403157do you remember the shitstorm in this thread? that was me anon! do you remember the last shitstorm? that was me anon! do you remember that time your hot-pocket fell on the floor and you couldnt even bend over far enough to pick it up? that was me anon!I am the cause of every bad thing that has happened in your recent memory, my shitposting genius knows no bounds!>>63403179shucks anon youll make me blush
>>63403217No, you're just easy to spot and every time someone brings up martials vs casters, antimagic, F/SN, etc, you're always there trashing a thread with your excruciatingly opinionated ramblings.
>>63403204>this thread was doing decently until the Discord fag cameso here? >>63394215
>>63403231I am what you faggots deserve, I never start the shitstorm- I simply bite
>>63403157His issue is that he doesn't shut up and can't conceive of opposing viewpoints. He's also really, well, dumb.
>>63403261>and can't conceive of opposing viewpointsI understand they exist, they just happen to be wrong
>>63403045I actually don't want to post it until after the holidays because I know it'll be ignored what with all the other bigshot authors (and Tok) putting their deadlines there.
>>63403261The laughable thing is if you had asked me who this fag was a week ago I would have asked who you were even talking about. He is basically Tok with a different name
>>63403287Don't let other people's timelines define your own.If you think it's ready and you want to share it, by all means do so. Quality will stand on its own merit.Looking forward to playing yours, gentle anon.
>>63403261He literally just turned eighteen. He's still effectively a kid. Give him a break.
>>63403314the funny thing here is that I havent been very active for most of this week
>>63403332That explains so much. A discordfag that just turned 18, Only thing is missing is his reddit account and his youtube channel
>>63403204My point is the thread was inherently cursed from the start, even if it didn't start bad.
>>63403372you say that like I havent been in this general for years already
>>63403314I am ashamed to say that I find more distaste in this Gil guy than Tok.
>>63402151saber is just enough of her type to get past her repressed feelings but that doesn't mean she wouldn't like other types of girls
>Equated to TokRIP Gilposter. That's the worst insult you can give to an author.
>>63403436Saber is the only girl she seems to like, shes the perfect package of personality and looks
>>63403466are you kidding? this is greatI have apparently usurped THE shitposter without so much as trying
>>63403332So he's literally just a pure fucking shitter then
>>63403217>Remember that time that girl was blowing you barry but stopped right before you came, that was me barry, me!
>>63403252Stupid is as stupid does. Don't be part of the problem, be a solution
>>63403550I give people what they deserve
>he's acting tough
>>63403388>CheckedYour double doubles of truth tells no lies and only of wisdom.>>63403419Remember when Tok was being really retarded and then when he left and came back he tried to say that it was all an epic troll instead of just learning from his mistakes and growing up? That's the exact same thing this newfag is trying to do>>63403584And its hilarious.
proposal to call the next thread clean your own adventure or caliber your own adventure
>>63403315Holdfastanon, is that you?
>>63403584Gil is adorable, ain't he
>>63403613coo yu oh ad-ture thog.
>>63403568So you're retarded and have zero self control. Gotcha.
>>63403568Yeah, no, stop pretending like you're some hot shot. Jesus.
>>63403568Do you understand just how fucking autistic you are?
>Instead of learning from Tok's mistakes he is following exactly in his foot stepsHow long until he announces he is leave to the discord forever or to reddit?
>>63392398Where's Honey Crisp? You wouldn't even have to change the name up, that one just works.
>>63403690I am what the thread deserves me to be, I dont start any shitposting- I just join in>>63403740enough to browse /cyoag/>>63403745you arent so lucky anon
>>63403568>shits his pants>"dude, that's not what grown people do">I-It's the shit you deserveBasically you
He is turning into Tok at a faster pace right before our eyes
>>63403791Oh god just stop. You fucked up and made yourself out to be an utter moronic ass, now suck it up and deal with it.
>>63403825I havent even started shilling yet anon
>>63403825Nooo gil noooo!
You guys are finally realizing how awful he is? Excuse me while I laugh after half year of holding it in.
>>63403944>You guys are finally realizing how awful he is?kinda seconding thisits not like ive changed at any point
>>63403961Yes you're awful. I've always known how awful you are. Seeing people turn on you is a godly fucking feel.
It's funny how the people that claim whoever started and continued shitposting is Gil, then proceed to shitpost harder.>inb4 t.GilPlease have a moment of introspection. For all I know, this was all Tokie trying to shift all the hate that's usually directed at him to another target, plus some idiots that fell for it.
>>63403974so youre an early fan of mine?
>>63403614Yes. Is my prose that obvious? :)But seriously, if you have something that you feel is good, post it and let's take it for a spin.

>>63403976>Please have a moment of introspection. For all I know, this was all Tokie trying to shift all the hate that's usually directed at him to another target, plus some idiots that fell for it.I compared gilfag to Tok because he is acting just like Tok did and instead of learning from it he is doubling down on being a retard just like Tok did
>>63403976How's the taste of Gil's dick, anon?
>>63404079>instead of learning from it he is doubling downof course I am, why should I hold myself to a higher standard than the rest of you do?
>>63404057"Gentleanon" gave it away. nobody else is that nice or uses such prose. others may be civil but never things like "gentle"
>>63402739>whoever made this cyoa thoughAyy that's me. I always meant to update it, intending to expand on the jobs, assistants and worlds. Never got around to do it. Tell me what you liked and maybe suggestions or other stuff.
>>63404172Yeah. People here can be such cunts that the nice ones stand out as weird.
>>63404203all the more reason to like an author. you have your gils and toks, then you have your holdfasts and berris.I know what i prefer.
>>63404057Update when my dude?
>>63404253I should hate Berri, as I dislike cutsey animu shit, but I cannot bring myself to. Must be that Berri charm.
>>63404378I should hate Italics, as I dislike that illiterate chuuni shit, but I cannot bring myself to. Must be that Italics charm.
>>63404415I should hate my body, as i dislike the shit it makes me go through, but i just cannot bring myself to. Must be that Body charm.
>>63404176I liked the variety of jobs from taking a major role in it like the hero and villain positions, to more maintenance jobs like keeping artifacts locked away in between legendary moments, ensuring the dragons don't wage total war on humanity, and being a guardian of time (because of course a hero is gonna fuck up the timeline at some point).The 'waifus' I didn't like too much, even just picking one as a genuine assistant instead of romantic interest was difficult. Would have liked an option to just go without.Would also have liked an expansion on the different roles, and possible abilities or companions that are unique to each one. Maybe a way for all the employees to hang out together in a pocket dimension away from the world?Also a bit more detail on how the respective immortalities work. Like the time guy is immortal, and the hero and villain reincarnate, but what does the reincarnation entail? Do they remember things from past iterations? Is the dragon negotiator job immortal too?
>>63404428I should hate you all, as I dislike unoriginal posting, but I cannot bring myself to. Must be that Anon charm.
>>63404473I should love god, as i wish to go to heaven, but i cannot bring myself to. Must be that despairing lack of faith.
>>63404532I think you mean Satan's charm.
>>63404088Like imaginary gold.
>>63404564I think you mean humanity's inability to plan ahead.
>>63404532Hell isn't so bad anon
>>63403004>Take Emissary>Get dissected and experimented on by elves until your magic is extracted, your body then promptly discarded
>>63404616I think you mean crippling human weakness, in that i only want to go to heaven than consider loving god because he is my creator. >>63404618fire, brimstone, cold, pain, anguish or just seperation from my soul. all seem bad.
>>63404282I'm mostly done with finals. I plan to really knock out quite a bit of work on Holdfast this weekend.I spent a few hours today aggressively retooling the end of Chapter One, setting up a mystery or two, baiting the proverbial hook. I should have a decently meaty Chapter Two beta for consumption and feedback by Christmas if not before, though I won't promise that all of Chapter Two will be done by that time.All of Chapter Two will probably be another four pages. The first four were 20k words if I recall correctly, so building up the next part to an equal standard of depth and quality will create time.I appreciate your patience and everyone else's. And may I share that I'm loving all the OC I'm seeing lately. You're all heroes in my book.With love and kindness, have a great day/afternoon/night.
>>63404656Good dental plan though.
>>63404699having them torn out and replaced to be torn out seems to just hurt more.But speaking of hell, lets show my own personal one.
>>63404715>>63404688You have all the patience in the world if you deliver before two years pass, then even the most faithful start to doubt.
>>63404649nobody said elves are nice
>>63404688If his fiction is half as good as his manners, he'll be the next Tolkien. Is this CYOA any good? Haven't heard of it.
>>63404656>seperation from my soulDidn't we go over this just a little bit ago? That's not what the word means. You can't be separated from yourself. You can be separated from your body, but it's not like you'll be there forever, nor like Jehovah is really your best bet.
>>63404656>i only want to go to heaven than consider loving god because he is my creatorWhy do you think god offers heaven? It's the bait. Worship god for heaven long enough, and you'll eventually start worshiping god for god.
>>63404772I think i mean separation from god according to christians. I'm tired, sorry for any mistakes made here, but hell is just supposed to be seperate from god's grace/light. Dante came along and gave us hellfire and brimstone >>63404775
>>63404757Doesn't excuse them for being douches.
>>63404464In a grander scheme I tried to make most jobs convey the idea that magic and free will is a terrible combination. All the problems just get shoved down the line. Create mass destruction or destroy the world? Call the druid. Timeloops and paradoxes? Call the Time Warden.Obviously the whole idea was just a silly concept combining the work life with magic narrated by a tired, snarky wizard with wise-guy commentary.The assistants were an unnecessary contribution, but for humor's sake I included them. I wondered what people would put up with for the sake of a pretty face. Yes, in fact they are all terrible in their own right.Yennifer (Neutral) is a typical wizard with no sense of right or wrong. Who gets lazy because magic can do anything.Cristi (Strong Submissive) is a succubus who wants to suck you dry.Brighid (Subtle Dominant) wants to own you.Lucille (Switch) is a diva who will claim your achievements for herself.Demeter (Submissive) is a whimsical tricksy fairy.Morgana (Dominant) wants to take over your job.I really liked your feedback. Your wishes for expanding aren't unreasonable. But let's talk some more another time (tomorrow maybe?). I have to sleep now.

>>63404799Dante's Inferno is also meaningless, because I recall the people in his rendition of hell were incapable of actual thought or consideration of their circumstances so that they couldn't escape.
>>63404868doesn't mean that the image hasn't stuck. What if the big guy upstairs got ideas?
new thread soon?
I'd really rather the general just die
>>63405010You're only prolonging our suffering.
>>63405021It is only through suffering that humans learn how to fix their problems. Otherwise they'd just fade away or sit on their asses forever.
