I'll write a little blurb that starts off a story. Then when I get to the end there's a choice (say anywhere from 2-4 options). The next poster makes a choice out of the options and writes the next section of the story also ending in a choice (and so on and so forth).
Example wrote:Me: You had never seen a keg that size before. It seemed to be bulging with cool, delicious ale.
(a) Sit down and have a pint.
(b) Keep your assault rifled ready and scan the room with your wary eyes.
Next Poster: You choose (a). As soon as you sit down and whip out your ale mug, 14 identically dressed ninjas descend stealthily from the ceiling. Though they approach you slowly, their blades spinning and humming about their heads, you feel no fear. You had anticipated this.
(a) Offer them a drink!
(b) Pretend not to notice, but slowly reach for your .50 caliber pistol.
(c) Break down and wail for your mommy like a child.
Some general guidelines/notes:
-I don't know if a thread like this already exists - sorry if it does!
-Try to be humorous and creative.. don't just be like "You reload your mag and cut them down like dogs and then find some chiken and eat it bcuz yur hungry [sic]."
-There's no limit in how long your continuation of the story can be, but be reasonable.
Alright then, I'll start us off:
You wake up in the pale moonlight with your body completely drenched in sweat. Immediately, your finely tuned senses detect something terribly wrong. You sit up and gaze about the clearing. There are no birds chirping, no crickets, no owls hooting. Even the wind feels subdued. Across the clearing you can just make out two small, red eyes gazing at you unblinkingly. That must be it, you think to yourself. That must be the Knomenstaag.
(a) Slowly stand up and walk towards the beast.
(b) Reach for your bow and quiver.
(c) Begin to sing the soft, haunting melody of the Knomenstaag friendship song.
(d) Lie back down and pretend to be sleeping.
