Be chieftain Gardar of austisland, one son, no wife.
Want vestisland, build army and begin invasion, son dies in battle
But I won because I caught their leader.
Seduce one of my courtiers, Katrina, goes well so make her my concubine
Now I want a small island down to the south, decide to seduce the guys wife, one Chieftess Malmfrid. The guy is prisoner was another country at this point, just been freed
It worked, now she is my lover, couple months later and she’s pregnant. We keep it secret for now.
After a few years I’ve got a few kids in other kingdoms, plus married woman half my age and had a daughter, she’s now my heir.
Several peasants form some movement, been growing for a while but whatever.
Suddenly they demand tax breaks, I call arms and crush the, 2 months later, imprisoned leader, destroyed faction.
A day later I publicly execute him via beheading, males me feel great and everyone thinks I’m in the right.
Wife gives birth to son, make him new heir and when he’s old enough
Another son.
One of my lovers (another chiefs wife) is pregnant again.
The small area I almost invaded is ruled by a child with a stronger army than me.
More children, I exposed several secrets, including that someone eats human flesh, just to see their rule collapse, and my two oldest children have come of age, I married the, off to siblings, both are recognised bastards to house Akra, though they are Albinos and are marrying to my family.
I am now old and dying. I use my last strength to reveal all my secrets, all of my secret children I admit to being mine. Some believe me while others don’t.
But it’s not my problem anymore, goodbye.
It has been some months since I felt ill and I am still here. My wife is furious with me so I do the only thing can, I plot her death.
9 months later and as she ate the poisoned turkey while feasting a bone got lodged in her throat making everyone think that killed her. Perfect. Now the dynasty is truly for the children.

Acedia is best with like no competition?

>>76927401
Lazy Vampire. If she can turn me into a vampire, I get to avoid some of the rather unpleasant age related issues I have waiting for me in the future. If she can't, well she's a lazy shit and less likely to take issue with the zero effort I plan on putting into that relationship. Less likely to pull some shit when we eventually break up and she has a worse chance of pulling it off successfully if she does try something.

What sections of JRPG traitor do I have to read to get the lore? I don't need to read the Hero profiles or powers or betrayal stuff, right? Are there things I need to go look back at in the archive to see if the author posted more details about the setting (Post-CYOA notes)?
>>
>>76931114
Most of the lore seems to be in the powers, especially the late/god-like ones.
>>
>>76931192
Really? Strange place to put lore, but okay.
>>
>>76931114
The lore is deeply integrated. Powers and Overlords get you the stuff about the worlds and the gods, the hero profiles get you a more "boots on the ground" view of what the world is like for mortals.

The setting of JRPG Traitor is more or less a sequel to the novel Gods of Pegana. Reading it is the most comprehensive way to understand the lore imo unless you want to go to the thread archives and read up on lore discussions.

I like it but I would have liked a VtM like power to make ghouls and an option to walk the day but your powers are blocked, a bit like the original Dracula.

>couldn't keep the act up
I prefer to campy to meta and self aware.
>Thirsty -2
I want to go for the bloodbath feeding method and it'd seem a waste filling a whole bathtub for just a pint.
>Counting Bats -4
Just get some good servants to revive us.
>Bloodbath -6
Just lower the hibernators into a basin to get them running again.
>Hemophilia -10
I want to spare up points now and this seems like it'd just make proper use of all the blood in the bath
Use every part of the animal boys and girls.
>Sharing is Caring -11
While I'm not too focused on quickly spreading, drain and gain is just too involved
>Golden Eyes -12
Chose the one I think stands out the least. Yeah if you know what you're looking for you'll be able to pick us out but it's not worth two points to prevent that
>time abyss -13
I had to think about this. I mean, yeah, I'd probably die anyway within 60.000 years, but to accept it as an inevitability....
Vampires go to hell right? Like, for eternity? That's part of the lore, isn't it?
>pale moonlight -14
This is fine... I guess. Pale people exist, we won't stand out that much.
>Makeover -13
I don't understand 1% bodyfat. It seems to me that it's only an improvement for fat people and even then, ALL of the bodyfat being gone isn't that much better of a look. The cheerleader girl in the image certainly has some fat deposits.
>Age -12
I mean, you gotta promise returned youth to your potential converts, don't you?
>Banquet -11
Let's keep access to our hedonistic pleasures.
>Super -9
>Genius -7
We have to gather worshippers after all.
>Better with Age -5
I mean, you gotta, right? Otherwise you're outgrown by your rivals.
>Day Walker 4
That gets rid of the biggest handicap. We can now easily participate in human society.
I mean apart from the killing requirement. That might be a big problem.
>Roses 3
We can survive some sealing. Can't keep up the tradition forever, we will outlive you.

>transition period 1
>Mode Lock 0
>>
>>76931742
I've come to realize that I would have done better with an easier feeding method.
I'd imagined myself as a lord having victims shipped in from the human trafficking black market, but it probably won't even come to that when I get arrested for killing my roommate in a desparate bid to avoid starvation.
I like this cyoa for its potential for varied and unique builds. But there's a number of joke options in there that drag it down a bit imo.

If I see a CYOA that I have a build saved for I must post it.

>Church
Few things beat safety, absolute faith and knowledge in your safety even more so. Also I'm a sucker for places of forgotten significance. An old house for tiny gods.

>Stone Soup
>Vending machines
I like food and plan on using these in tandem

>Library
I would go insane without something to do. It was a toss between this and the Radio for entertainment and knowledge. This won.

>Mute Girl
Just going to go ahead and say right now that I took all companions for various reasons but ultimately I don't want to be alone here. I would like to think that they wouldn't want to be either.

If she brings coins for the machines I can show her where we can make some delicious soup and give her a safe place to stay.

>Bum
Like a grumpy, distant uncle. I didn't have the points for any of the items to help me so I'm hoping that what he can tell me will improve my odds.

>Repeat Jumper
It will be nice to have a pleasant conversation from time to time. Maybe I can save her from herself.

>The Raven
How could I not, especially in conjunction with the church? His warnings, coupled with the lessons from the Bum, the advice from the Repeat Jumper and the Mute girl watching my back, will hopefully see me through.

>The Trains
If I ever want a way out. Still debating dropping this for the Skeleton Key, Thrift Store or Mala. Mala should work great in conjunction with the Church and The Jumper. Flashlight is also tempting.

Might switch it out for Silent Ones or Phantom 9. Phantom 9, with the Church and Raven is a wild card that could either go very well or very poorly for me.

Vasana. Intelligence/Perpetuity/Proliferation, Everyone else is a bad idea. Give Suzuka a decade of being a human and she'll probably settle down. Nothing hints at Suzuka necessarily looking for anything more than a normal human would be able to provide, so that should be an easy enough situation to manage.

You: 'Hey, do you like Star Trek?'
>'Oh, I love Star Trek! Wanna watch some?'
You: Yeah, that sounds great!

And then they put on NuStar Trek, explaining that they are the only series of the franchise that they can stand.

Would you not feel the need to point out that they're wrong? I mean, you probably wouldn't because hey, pus is on the table, but still.

Lost Technology world is post-apocalyptic landscape that was once highly modern with energy weapons, nukes, full New York cities, etc. A great war resulted in everything getting wiped out/mutated/people dying horribly.

The leader of the Lizardman + his bro knew the true history of the world and have access to a old world bunker with old technology and replays of the world destruction. He doesn't want things to repeat which they were about to if he didn't win.

That's wrong.
1.) Many things really just come down to chance, timing, and good fortune (All of Spanish America, and the resulting global impact).
2.) These guys are actively maintaining the status quo.
>or get wiped out by some random disaster that a non-stagnating society would have survived.
Unlikely and more paranoid than saying aliens are bombarding us with radio waves to kill us.
>>
>>76933989
>2.) These guys are actively maintaining the status quo.
Is about the only thing that could do it and the steady passage of history into myth. Once we know something is possible it becomes an order of magnitude easier to recreate it, think of all the research that goes unfunded because it's too "blue sky" and imagine if patrons were sure of eventual results. As for disasters seismography, disease prevention and famine relief are hardly unlikely and high-tech civs are better able to provide (though admittedly complex supply chains make them more vulnerable in the first place). Unprecedented yet plausible shit like Yellowstone blowing is better withstood by people who can dig bunkers and run subterranean greenhouses off geothermal energy assuming nobody gets an itchy finger on the nuclear button on the panic leading up.

So? You're basically saying we should go back to be chemosynthetic slime mats because when photosynthesis evolved it wiped out most of the biosphere before life developed aerobic respiration. The solution is to inch ahead slowly with the aim of preempting the problems you can predict before they appear unless you have concrete proof that progress past a certain point uniformly results in apocalypse. Crisis was averted in Cuba and that setting only has the one data point of failure, even then from a civ that didn't have the benefit of ruins to learn from.

Why bother hurting humans? Live and let live, I say.

My breed is bestial in appearance yet arguably pretty benign thanks to modest feeding needs and feeding off non-human animals. When calm I look vaguely human, but pale, hairless, with pointed ears and solid black eyes, things I’ll try to conceal with a wig and sunglasses. When I revert to my true form I look like a monstrous deer-centaur. I don’t feed on humans, instead hunting deer for a few pints of blood per month and leeching their life to stay young.

While I have no need or desire to harm humans, I’m no pushover. At night I’m a force of nature thanks to Cloak of Night, Super, Doom, and my transformation abilities. Young Blood and Better With Age also means I grow in power very quickly, while Leech lets me stay young to eliminate the downside of Young Blood.

Sunlight is inconvenient, though not immediately fatal. Most of the other things are strange tells or minor inconveniences rather than true weaknesses. I only really need to worry about getting my head chopped off or heart destroyed during the day, since Cloak of Night will protect me otherwise, so I’ll just spend the day underground as a shadow with neither a head nor a heart as long as I stay out of daylight. If I’m found, I can mind control people and wipe their memories.

Come on man, you can do better. If I can give you just one piece of incetive, it's this: Go out into the world...wide web and start looking for/at stuff. Search for random terms, look at the pictures that come, click on them, look at the related images, visit the websites they're hosted on.

Sooner or later, you will (not can, will) find something that inspires you, something you just have to make a cyoa about. Take it from someone who is currently making his first oc and just start looking.

Lamprey seems like it would be as good as drainage given the incredibly small amount of blood you need to take with dry. Even factoring in hemophilia, over the course of a year you'd only need three pints and hickies still makes it a pleasurable little chomp so you could have several people to skim a little bit of blood from. It can be a tentacle hidden down your throat, so no one will know just by looking at you normally. That would free up 3 points for a nice perk like super or dropping a drawback like roses.

Similarly, Ringo level sunlight vulnerability is 5 points cheaper than day walker, without really anything worse than needing to wear sunglasses during the daytime.

Oh, yes. It wasn't the military. It was just men from a group of 10,000+ militarized units. Truly, I'm hopeless.

That's the reason they didn't depose him then. A bit different in a country that changes its ruler every 4-to-8 years to someone unrelated to the current leader.

The only person aiming to depose of the Emperor in the coup was a loon Major who was trying to continue the war. The entirety of the Japanese military was fine with the surrender and ending the war.

If a major and some dumb buddies blows the brains out of Trump for example doesn't mean the military couped him.

I assigned those 5, 1 to savageness, 1 to chest pounding, 2 to juju and 2 to evolution. Then I got +3 vines mastery, +3 Juju, +1 Evolution, +4 Nerves from perks (extra +1 nerves from tactician synergy with id plate)
I have to say I would prefer the cyoa to give a baseline as to what the stats mean, I have no idea how good 5 juju is

There's never been a more kino CYOA. Rolling for which Forest I descend into-
>1=Night
>2=Winter
>3=Fear
I prefer Winter but Fear is good for the amount of violence as well as Night for the sense of perpetual sustainability.

I'd argue Lethe Hotel has excellent synergy between design choices and the subject matter as does their conspiracy one with options presented as schizoid clippings pinned to a board.
>>
>>76936794
Eldritch is a Highlander-Aromage collaboration. Its. . .basically a Lovecraftian spin on Aromage's Demigod
>>
>>76936930
>nxtub to Good tier, prepare for winter has some nice atmosphere and a killer sense of impending doom.
imo that’s nxtub’s gameplay and artistic skills more than his writing
>>
>>76929584
I wonder why there are so many made up companions at the end when there are plenty to take from the series.
>>
>>76937089
I'll concede Lethe Hotel is exceptional but I feel it lacks the impact of Within A Dark Forest. There's a certain vivacity New Observer's work is missing compared to his predecessor, though he's no doubt a competent author, he's no replacement.
>>
>>76937111
His extra page describing likely outcomes strikes a nice balance between cautioning the player without outright sentencing them to death if they didn't make certain choices, I'd say that's an achievement won by writing skill. Also if I, chariotanon, get a place despite rampant typos and deciding paragraph length based on how Word separates lines he definitely does.
>>
>>76936490
Most of the spells aren't actually 100:100 copies. They're in fact quite unidentical. Reimaginations. I've had to say this like five times last year, making me wonder if it's a shitpost.

The angel cyoa was alright, his output would improve dramatically if he could get that sometimes less is more.

>>76937179
Very true, spotting an 8/10 is trivial and 9/10's easy, but a 10/10? It's arguably only personal preference but I feel there's a significant quality that transcends individual perspective, in some cases that is, a sort of raw potency that lays itself bare and unspoken acknowledgement of its grandeur. For me, aesthetic is one of the least important parts of a CYOA, what I crave is the substance.

That's a fantastic way to put it. I don't mean to come off like a postmodernist pseud but I feel like CYOAs are very much a form of art, and a higher one than the abstract nonsense that's used for money-laundering.

That is the mark of a good writer. A great writer wouldn't take another's writing to begin with.
>>
>>76937311
On that note are there any cyoa focusing on "times gone by" in a good way? All that comes to mind is that retired adventurer one and maybe the dying fairy.

Collapse by Lord Thistlewaite. The best "times gone by" cyoa I've ever seen.

You should pair Young Blood with Better With Age in order to have that power become stronger faster. If you take Leech as well with all the blood you will be drinking, you will still be effectively everlasting.

El Fuego Interior is from 7th Sea, Anon. These are all taken from an existing tabletop game as well. But they're not word for word copied, no... Arete is actually as awful as it sounds.
>>
>>76937520
>shrinks your dick and makes you a permavirgin
why is arete so fucking terrible
>>
>>76937520
A pity, doesn't stop me from enjying the cyoa though. I can see the point of Arete's purity obsession though, why would the Greeks have mentioned the gods having other fluids if it wasn't relevant to anything else? Zeus' promiscuity suggests it wasn't fatal at least. The approach almost has more in common with Polynesian Mana.
>>
>>76937162
Are the Relics his own original works?

>>76937543
Look at the sculpture of David, Greeks considered large peepees barbaric.

>>76937549
Why are you obsessed with this?
>>
>CYOA authors are good writers
Where are the published works and books then?
>>
>>76937605
Different mediums demand different skills. Plotting is all but non-existent in cyoa and largely counterproductive given players usually want to chart their own course.
>>
>>76937605
there's been two books written by cyoa authors
a gamebook about a boat, and lone observer's book
that said, the skillsets don't really carry over, due to different requirements for a cyoa vs a book.

>>76937546

>>76937643
>doesn't stop me from enjoying the cyoa though
Can you not read anon? Usually coming up with things independently leads to a greater variety of stuff for anons enjoy. Franchises aren't bad but if original there's less chance of covering the same ground when reading other works.
>>
>>76937565
That's from the Renaissance
>>
>>76937643
Different strokes for different folks. There's no denying that black on white blocks of times new roman are an unwelcoming sight.
>>
>>76937709
The Renaissance was all about aping the norms of the Classical era. You just know medieval hussies were all about fat Teuton sausage.
>>
>>76937720
there is literally nothing wrong with white on black times new roman.

Huh, that's actually the second time I've heard someone mention The Draughtsman's Contract when talking about my CYOAs (unless that was you too)

Never seen it personally, but I'll definitely have to look into it a bit more.

>there is literally nothing wrong with white on black
ok racemixer
>>
>>76937801
Me again, it's the first ultra-stylised piece that pops to mind. Very much a love-it-or-hate-it kind of thing which I mostly mention because half the shots look like they could come from a period painting.

Just looking at a couple trailers and clips, I can absolutely see where you're coming from there. The show I've been binge-watching the past few days ('Utopia'' –the UK version, not the new remake) is actually pretty similar in terms of that artificial, ultra-stylised nature, though made to be reminiscent of a graphic novel moreso than a painting.
>>
>>76937981
Fucking A man, both have killer soundtracks (though personally Utopia wins by a mile for me). I heard they made an American remake that was a travesty, nothing quite like it to remind me what was so great about the original. Might rewatch it with family if the Network's grand plan weren't so reminiscent of current events.

>>76937944
Probably anything between 300-600 years.
For the fall, it's mostly bad rulers aggraviated an economic crisis and one of the consequences were a civil war, later on the crumbling empire was invaded by barbarians (probably mostly lesser kingdoms beyond the empire hinterlands that are only primitive compared to the empire) and caused the final collapse.

Yeah, I haven't watched the remake, but from what I've heard they basically kept the plot intact but nothing else that made it pop out (generic music and style), whilst also massively dumbing down the writing and characters to painful levels.

It was a simple land, one that had few soldiers or armies but instead storytellers, artists and philosophers. The citizens would spend the day engaged in rigorous debates or putting on great plays and spectacles. They lived far from others, and never feared any hostilities as there was little value in their land. The value was in the people, the thinkers and the dreamers, who composed great works which would stand the test of time. Alas, for a civilization which put great stock into intellectual pursuits, they were unable to predict the calamities that befell them. First came the famine, and the citizens were unable to continue their revelries as they were forced to instead put their focus on ensuring they had enough food for the coming winter. The famine alone may have been manageable, but what came next was a sweeping blizzard, a storm so great it seems as if from one of the stories they were so fond of. Few, if any survived the combination of the ice storm and the famine by the time the spring rolled around. Yet the legacy of the great culture would live on, as many discovered the great works of art and history that lay hidden in the stores of the ruined city. Everything was written down, and future generations would learn much from the short-lived eden of knowledge that was once so great.

They say the hilltop city never died.
Ofcourse most of its people did, the disaster decade permanently diminished it, but there is still a hilltop city. It may not be what it once was, but the same proud traditions and insitutions survive to this day.
