Try to post a somewhat equal ratio of comments/pictures so people can enjoy both looking at cool builds and looking at CYOA's. Also if you have any that haven't been posted in a while, why not post them?
Posting builds without an adjoined story is frowned upon, the build itself is not the cool part.
I think if this choice was really presented to me right now I would go to strange land, and try to shape it into Adventure Time. That world would be the perfect life for me. They never have to worry about food or water or anything, they just kind of have resources when they need them. Infinite adventure with bros
gonna take a while got a countdown now.

I'll post my story below
Since I am a magic elemental, I use my own body for a mana pool. But since I have the following:
Angelic race (divine magic)
all these form together into the ability for me to heal lost limbs in seconds. So I don't use mana to cast a spell, I use my arm to cast a spell. And then I regenerate it.
>Constructs are self-sufficient
Meaning that I can regenerate without more magic.
My elite minions train all my mages up to their levels, so all of my minions are magic elemental sorcerer priest mage agents. I proceed to dispatch them around the world, harvesting magic and using their enchanting skills to seal it into their own body (it becomes more dense, not bigger) or artifacts. Then I consume either pieces of them or artifacts and gain the power. (if it is pieces of them they will keep regenerating their limb until they reach standard magic-energy density and I will stop). By this process I will be gaining a massive amount of magic power. When we have successfully depleted a land of magic (I have consumed it all), I teleport our realm to another area. I will continue this process until I become godlike in power, the embodiment of all magic itself, having consumed every trace of it. No one could even hope to stop me.
There's one build that can stop you, simply because it can accomplish your goal faster while reaching a technological singularity.
Its that notPhyrexia build with the 40+ Archmages and 700+ engineers and mages with training, equipment, ascendancy, talent:engineering, specialty:magic, evolution and their all undead constructs with mystic and technology affinity.

That means their bodies persist, if your body is mana, and you use that to cast, that means that you lose mana when you cast. The arm bit is irrelevant, you are still using mana.
Fair enough. I would still absorb all magic on earth though. I would start as a very powerful mage, after a few rounds of my mages collecting magical energy for me I would be powerful enough to kill almost anything

Ah I hear the Echoes and sounds of industry, of progress, the whirling of pistons, clicking and clacking of bone and sinew, the symphony of flesh and metal! And it is good!
Towering monolithic foundries as far as my eyes can see, the hammering of alabaster metal hide louder then the bellowing heavens and rolling thunder, vast canvases of porcelain growing and stretching by countless acres, churning out weapons, siege engines that spew death! Ripping flesh off bone! Boring through armor and fortification like blossoming necrosis, and it is good!
Necromancers and mages knit and weave bone and sinew into creations that exemplify purity of form and essence, with the barest facsimile of obsolete life, yet larger then even unlife itself! Unknown to fear and pain, absolutely obedient to my will and my will alone, with the predator's instinct to survive, adapt, evolve. Poetically crafted and stitched with the insatiable desire to consecrate this forsaken world with their blessed existence, and it is good!
The boundaries of my domain seep into the territory of the ignorant and damned. Do the living not see the generous and merciful gifts I heap at their doorsteps? Do they not see the salvation of metal, living ceramic and unlife? To be one with perfection? One with me?
I am the heart of progress, I am the engine of evolution, I am ever changing and ever improving. With every networked mind I grow in intelligence and wisdom, with every stitched sinew and riveted servo and actuator I become stronger and faster! My hand is the hand of judgement that will cleanse the land of all obsolesce and imperfection, I am the instrument of merciful and beautiful artificial apotheosis! I am one! I am legion! And it is good!
My realm is a sacred and holy realm, the sanctum where my great work can prosper undisturbed by the ignorant and blasphemous forces of life!
My realm is a auspice realm, every child conceived, every machine assembled are in the likeness of true divinity, simulacra of perfection without weakness or plagued with the disease of life!
My realm is the Simulacra Sanctum and I am Chthon The Prime Mover! Let the Grand Evolution begin!
Not sure if there's a more recent one, I saved this a while ago.

Legitimate content being produced, therefore it's justifiable that they should want their own thread.
Eh, seems like they might as well have a forum at this point it's true but it's just another quest thread really.
This one is a bit unnecessary but I think there's only been one.
I don't really get this one, it's true. Just post more in the normal thread.
Kind of required for CYOAs to exist.
There was only ever one of those and it was a graveyard for most of the time.
At the time of me posting, there's only 3 threads up with CYOA in the title or subject field.
Original Flavor Conduit is okay right? That one didn't devolve into arguments every thread. In fact, as I recall is barely got any discussion.

I'm literally an electric pimp. As I can fight lewd things in one world and mess around with mad science in the other, I doubt I'll miss Earth that much.
Pic sort of related.
Seconded. Terrible idea generally.
If you want to just read a shitload of CYOAs go to the fucking booru. I don't like it when discussion gets out of hand any more than anyone else but these threads are here for CYOAs and the discussing of them.
There's an updated version of this one. Your decision as to whether it's better or not.
Here's the finished horror thing from the last thread.
Creepy girl, Vulnerable.
Remarkable looks (Beauty)
Rare material, water from the black sea.
True name. (My legend is known by the ferrymen of the black sea. They know my true name.)
>Blue. Train academics.
This was my first thought. You could research clinical immortality or cures for diseases or whatever and you'd be guaranteed to succeed. But it says you keep gaining new 'rivals' and 'challenges', which sounds potentially pretty bad?
Like, if it's just some rival for the Nobel Prize or whatever, hey, no big deal. But I kind of suspect it would be some power-levels-and-tournament-arcs deal instead. Like if you're researching cures for heart disease, then increasingly-powerful cardiovascular disease-themed supervillains will start showing up.
>Demon - Demonic Magic
>Person - Typically a Female Teenager, if possible a nymphomaniac. Has to be extremely attractive, and popular. 13-16. Typically Red Head, or Brunette
Depending on whether the female is co-operative with me or not; I will grant them powers and reduce my area to a Half Mile in all directions around my "Host."
>Extra Sustenance: Pleasure
>Rare Material: Bois de Rose wood
>Specific Victim: Female
I'd find my first victim in my hometown; and I'd typically stay there. I would attempt to find a host that was extremely attractive to me. For the most part I'd leave my host alone, and ignore them, and cause trouble everywhere around them. With that said though, I'd still haunt my host, and attempt to drug her occasionally and rape her; because why not.
What's scarier to a woman than being raped by a demon, being haunted by it, scared by death, and enjoying the rape due to a drug induced euphoria.
I'd be a god in a month.

My companion and I command a scouting ship. I used to be a dragon hunter before my mentor died, and his death pulled me further into tomes about whatever these cultists worship. We're working on finding them so we can bring the more combat oriented groups down on them.
Shaman controls the winds, I use true sight to look beneath the waves for the cultists.
Beastman: 6ft tall werewolf with dark fur and glowing yellow eyes.
Island: Moonfang island is a medium sized temperate island hidden somewhere in north pacific. Victims drawn in by the islands resort, nature preserve, local village, and werewolf legends. Attacks by me and my pack are usually kept low profile in order to ensure our secrecy, most people believe that victims were simply mauled by a wild animal or assaulted by some random person.
1.Cult: 200 loyal men and women who serve as staff, inhabitants, caretakers, and protectors to the island.
2.Infectious: The most powerful and loyal cultists are allowed to become werewolves and serve in my pack. This also applies to victims who manage to survive and prove themselves worthy.
Common material: Copper
I honestly thought that would be a good name, should I have just called it werewolf island instead?Or are you just trying to call me a fagoot, because if you are just say I'm faggot instead of posting an image.
Specific Victim: couples
So, I own a tropical island, and I have the rural populace set up nice deals for couples, get them to come out and stay a while. After I get a few couples, I lock the place down. With the powers of illusion I'll make it look like there's a brewing hurricane or something. When the people on the island wonder why it isn't bothering us, simple, I say it's because of the special anomalous properties of the island! I'm a trustworthy guy, after all. If I don't like the couples, things go badly. One kills the other in a cruel, sick way after hours of running from some threat, before the violent partner does themselves in. Their deaths/disappearances are blamed on behavior appropriate for the couple, as I'd "research" them beforehand. If I like them, however, then things are different!
If I like one of the couples in the group, they get a special suite! They get to live in comfort, thinking naive natives revere them, for as long as they want (as I get strength from their joy). Sure, I still kill off some couples (man's got to eat after all), but I'm still making people happy! As for the cult (the island population, 100-200 people), they do rural stuff, with a handful of them doing the behind-the-scenes hospitality stuff. My role would be as manager and customer service representative.
I highly recommend guests be courteous and polite on my island.
I'm not sure if werewolf island would be worse, because they both share the problem of no one in their right mind ever wanting to call something that, werewolf island also sucks because of the obvious lack of effort, but "moonfang" is just so sparkly and childish, it's hard to say which is worse.
The island's got a great name if you're going for the campiest of horror, because it's a bit cheesy and it's got that kind of ring to it that would make you laugh at anyone that thought going there was a good idea.
If you want a serious name, I'd recommend going for something more characteristic of the region, perhaps the Wakashan word for wolf, or hunter, or something along those lines.
>I'm not sure if werewolf island would be worse, because they both share the problem of no one in their right mind ever wanting to call something that
Don't worry, it's just a name.
Werewolf Island is actually a peninsular.
>if you're going for the campiest of horror,
That's actually kind of what I was going for, the island is supposed to seem tame and innocent to draw people in. They think they're going for a vacation on a nature reserve/resort only to discover the place is home to a pack of dangerous werewolves.
I was also thinking of Moonscar island from Scooby-Doo on zombie island when I was making it.

The Realm of Anunna is one very, very few have heard of, but the stories of the beauty of the land, from it's rising impossible spire to floating lands with pristine brooks of water trickling off, as well as the enormous wealth to be found there make it alluring to those few who have heard of it. Though most who hear the tale think it a fable, there are those who believe it to be true, since the odd shred of evidence on a papyrus scroll to an odd jotting-down in a journal to a strange coin seem to point to it's existence. But even if it does exist, what little evidence for it is contradictory as to where it is and how to get to it.
Here's a island survival cyoa, hard mode
I'll take A as well, I'm about to post the Horde cyoa, so I'm nit going to count it, it's like using loaded dice
Would each spell level count as a different pool?
Not really. Since you get an upagrade to your life at no other cost
No. I would just choose one pool to double.

Sword of Greater Politics
People love me, and I have an awesome energy bow. First thing I'm going to do, is hunt down the Necromonger... and from there, I'll have to kill off a few of the other evil ones.
Better watch out, better not shout...
Rare material x2 (blood opals found in warring african tribes lands and meteorites that strike the north or south pole)
an ancient creation made by creatures that are said to have been from the void between the stars. some say the ring is waiting for someone of true worth to come along so it may claim them as a master giving them unimaginable power still requiring of course, the fuel it needs to survive from the host or a more source preferred by the master it cares not simply that its lives even sacrificing masters to keep itself in existence and away from where it may have been forged.
>Love Interest, Village, Pet
I'll create a beautiful world of forever-autumn, and populate it with a mixture of fantasy races. Go for a magi-tek setting, establish all the rules and such... and then, I'll seal off my own powers, kill myself to reincarnate, and enjoy living in my world through many life times. The pet, a large cat, and the love interest, will always reincarnate with me, too.

I've got a sword to keep myself safe, a companion that can form a formidable duo with me, and a steed that can get us just about anywhere. But, who knows if I'll have it in me to kill my friend.
Does anyone have the princess one that was posted last thread or so? I forgot to save it.
It depends on what you enjoy. They are really good, but they're mostly one of the same, power fantasy.
I enjoy plenty of cyoas, not only just the ones made by big names. I admit those are really well made, but there are plenty good ones out there. I encourage all OC. And what you said about the others being shit, they're not. That's coming from someone who made one of your precious masterpieces.
What I would like to personally see in OC is another 'island survival' type. The imprisoned one with the tennis ball and dental was my first and inspired me with the cyoas. I had a nostalgic craving for a similar one.
>Road Not Travelled
I head back to the first day of high-school (What if I'd actually worked hard and talked to people?). Instead of staying inside playing vidya for the first three years of my education, I meet up with lifelong friends and uncover the mysteries of the spirit world. Basically attempt to get dat sweet anime high-school life, everything I never got.
Nah, that fucker would just go on and on about how his plan was the best and he was going to kill everyone because he was the best and ignore everything that might not work in his plan.
Plus I think he had some strange form of typing turrets, because every other word would have to be shit.
Some people in these threads just can't stand that CYOAs outside of the types they like exist. Everything about them has to be exactly what they think that CYOAs should be, and anything outside of that is bad.

Essentially, mirror-universe Bowser pops up, right next to the local analogue to the Mushroom Kingdom, proceeds to establish himself quite rapidly, starts wrecking the bandits' shit, and accidentally wakes up the local lich overlord while expanding trade. Now he has to prove to the neighboring kingdoms that he can stand up to an angry undead emperor, or be crushed. Plus, a bunch of treasonous Goombas have started up the Glorious Shiitake Revolution and are beginning to stir up trouble in the rank and file.
And then there's the issue of the treasure.
I know exactly what you mean. All types are welcome, but seeing a really good one that tickles your creativity is really rare.
Like the moment you desperately want both choices, but have to settle with one.
Or when you combine certain options to have great synergy with eachother, and makes you feel as if you solved a puzzle.
The one where you daydream about your build.
Or the one at where you look at a specific option that make you go "oh my God I want that".
I wish all cyoas were like that.
I love those feelings and a good cyoa is like a personal puzzle with multiple good solutions.
I have a lot of these so I can start dumping but a few are already here. Any requests? (preferably one or two page ones as I usually don't bother with 4+ page ones simply out of my inability to organize files)
Fuck, file didn't upload.

Plant - Plant Animation
Voices, trapped, temptation, remarkable looks, presence, illusion, and durability.
Common material - Steel
I am a sentient and spiteful tree, who seeks to destroy those who tread in my forest. I want to help nature grow, and despise almost every human for contributing to destroying nature. I always grow in a cleared out grove with me right in the center, drawing any wanderer to me. Many hear of the mysterious disappearances in the forests I appear in, and wish to explore to try to find whatever it is. They all quickly succumb to me. Once they get to me, they are confronted by a tree always bare of leaf, with a menacing chasm at the base. They know what the chasm leads to, and they want to turn, but the voice inside their head tells them to keep going. As they continue approaching, I show them illusions of my past victims, all reaching down into the hole to their own demise. They feed the soil that they desecrate and destroy, to redeem for their deeds. They knew this would happen, they could feel the dread increasing as they approached the grove. A grove so dazzlingly terrifying and inhuman they knew death was their only gift. My weakness is the common steel of a chainsaw or other blade, but if someone is strong willed enough to resist me long enough to cut me down, even with durability, then I move on. I respawn in another grove somewhere else as a seed, and begin growing into another tree.
To add because I ran out of characters, the thing inside the chasm that kills them are thousands of plants all planting themselves in their bodies and fertilizing them in a measly few hours.

I'm not going to be able to finish the Avatar choice image before I leave it seems, and I'm unsure of when I'll get a connection up and running again. I rewrote another choice image I made, rather quickly I admit, as a farewell (though not a permanent farewell) to the general. My blog updates (already a rarity, I admit) and choice image creations will have to cease for now.

A poster broke the rules and started an argument, and this guy (>>34429575) wants to politicize it and use it to marginalize sexual content under the premise that "fetishes are bad".
Usually when there's a rule violation, the accompanying argument is removed as well.
>>34429149 probably remains because it doesn't break any rules, and serves as a reminder to people that if you want to offer content that isn't allowed on the board, this is the preferred, courteous, and rule-abiding way to do it.
Are we seriously arguing over this in a thread where we literally just dream about our fantasies? It's a /d/ CYOA anyways, didn't need to be here, and there's more interesting ones anyways. Small loss.
1/3, but I don't have the other parts. Anyone else?
Oh, the point that some things are allowed and some aren't, and that you don't seem to know the difference?
This has gone past aggravating and is actually entertaining now. Go on, tell us, what was the point that we missed.
I think you're missing the point >>34429710
Yeah, it's bizarre. They have a story they like, and by gum they're going to stick with it, with no room for reality to get a word in edgeways.
Maybe you were banned for spamming or making really shitty posts or some other reason?
You apparently didn't notice that they don't.
>Maybe you were banned for spamming or making really shitty posts or some other reason?
Nothing that wasn't as shity as a /d/ fetish post.
>You apparently didn't notice that they don't.
They do though.
Gonna keep dumping to drown out the hilarious flame war. Responses encouraged to get back on topic.
We're waiting on the singularity.
(spoilered because off topic) Sucks actually. Want to transition, but too late, family wouldn't/couldn't pay, I sure as hell can't, would take too long so I'll just stick with who I am as a guy and be the best I can be until it's quick and hopefully cheap and doesn't involve shabby surgery. I hope though. It's why I play games and have my fantasies, they keep me sane I guess. Otherwise I'd have no release for this kind of thing. Thanks for at least tricking me into thinking there's others.
Sometimes I wish /v/ would just leave.
Really? I thought it was pretty solid but another page would be good.
Also thanks for letting me talk about this shit to someone who at least doesn't yell and scream sanic the edgehog tier insults at me, yet more reasons to leave /b/ when I did. Hope I've repaid in CYOA.
No, no, I believe you, I don't want to be like that anon insisting links are against the rules. It just seems bizarre. Like, if I really wanted to get the feminist argument, I actually have a reason to break the rules myself and post a pic just to get staff attention.
If I don't like what's on the menu, I find a different thread. Let the people with wands of instant fixing deal with the shit.
Should I keep dumping here? Anyone lurking? It's getting close to 2AM.
Okay so that was 3/3. All of these used similar thumbnails.
1/1, these are quests. Damn hard to make out though.
Even though CYOA threads get flooded now and then generally they are the least judgemental topics.
For some reason I didn't save the v2 pdf which was dumb.
"Oh look they put it in .pdf! That was nice, too bad I don't really need those."
>mfw I was wrong and it was v2
>mfw this happens a lot
>mfw my level developer is forcing me to learn github because my version control is shit
>My face is a CYOA
Shitposting doesn't get reported, shitposting becomes the norm, assholes accumulate, before you know it people in thread actually believe that things are expected to be shitty and that you're just supposed to live with it. Just take a look at what passes for normal content and behavior on /v/, or /pol/, or any of the other shithole boards. /tg/ is not that place. Don't make it that place.
Ooh I have a few of those. Single choice, not point buy, yes? Gonna dump a few more and then off to bed. Classes don't start for over a week for me, my summer job ended and aforementioned level developer has been going to bed at 8PM so I get to haze through another day.
Which brings us back to relying on the dedication of others for our quality of life. That way, if it does go to shit, we can blame it on passholders instead of everyone else who didn't report, right?
I might try making a simple CYOA, just a grid with options. I've never made one before and I will probably keep adding descriptions and make it get bigger and bigger until I am forced to turn it into another character-building one...
This one always goes overlooked. I like to imagine all of the cardholders living in the same town or city with intrigue and shit going down. Alternate reality you can be anyone you want. Judge for me.
There are shitposts, and then there are shitposts. Recurring threads need to be a bit more careful about self-maintenance. It's not like another thread without a persistent group of people with an investment in it; a thread like that gets shitposted right off the board and then forgotten, no big deal. But there has been an element in the cyoa threads lately that I have grown to hate, that just want to shit on everything.
Just make sure your alignment is right. Honestly if I could ever get that part I'd make several. But I can't.
on GIMP there's a handy grid tool- just divide the canvas width to work out square size, and it should work from there. The images can ruin the appearance too, so you have to be very selective.
I waste enough time typing in captchas as it is. Why do I have a responsibility to spend my time doing what others can do instantly?
If every single CYOA thread gets so shit that I decide constant feminist circlejerking is better, I'll go play CYOAs on Reddit. What other users and pass users do is their lookout, and if passholders don't like it , they can say it's not their fault all they want, but they're the ones who are left in it.
This one's always fun if you're religious, because we never realize how much we just take our own idea of the afterlife and get protective of it. Fun to see how you would build the afterlife if you could.

Not that I have thought about this before or anything...
Oh. Well then maybe I'll try tomorrow. Thanks. Last one from me tonight, good luck making one yourself. Thanks for a good night guys. I'm off to bed.
Emotions are hard for me to express, not autism or anything, just feels selfish to talk about my own, and anonymity makes it easier to do that and especially with a community this nice and laid back.
So basically, you just have something against contributing. Take up space and suck off what's there, then leave when it's no good anymore.
> but they[passholders]'re the ones who are left in it
Why? They can leave for reddit the same as you. Does $20 a year sound like a bank-breaking amount to you? Most people lose more money when rounding off hundredths of a cent when they do their taxes.
They're welcome to leave too. But don't go saying that others should have wasted their time to maintain the site as you have a responsibility to.
Let me ask you this, are you three pass users?
One anon thinks responsibility comes from gaining anything from the site. If you use it, you're responsible.
Another said it comes from wanting the site to be high quality.
Either way, why should an anon, without a pass, waste time for that purpose when a passholder doesn't merely click a button to save everyone any effort?
But where do YOU think it comes from? Hiding behind the beliefs of others isn't very compelling.
Responsibility might be considered to come from a combination of the two - in fact, I'm pretty sure that's what was intended by two different posters, if inadequately expressed .
>Either way, why should an anon, without a pass, waste time for that purpose when a passholder doesn't merely click a button to save everyone any effort?
Because there might not be a pass holder around?
Here is a truism for you - If it isn't getting reported then nobody is reporting it.
By the way it is the responsibility of the person without a pass to report anything but the most clear-cut abuses. You can get banned by triggerhappy janitor for frivolous reporting so a pass user would have to waste more time logging out and back in.
Getting your pass banned is not an option.
I think it doesn't matter where it comes from.
>By the way it is the responsibility of the person without a pass to report anything but the most clear-cut abuses. You can get banned by triggerhappy janitor for frivolous reporting so a pass user would have to waste more time logging out and back in.
>Getting your pass banned is not an option.
What the fuck are you talking about? You'd buy a pass, then not use it for fear of doing the wrong thing and getting banned for a day? Why use a pass for posting at all, since you could get banned for a post? Passes can't even get banned anyway.
We've been through this. Like this anon >>34430667 says, it's a matter of wasting time: pass users don't, users do.
Why wouldn't I suffer to be smart enough to solve the world's problems, charismatic enough to implement them, and durable enough to live long enough to do all of that?
If multiple bonuses not allowed -3 Str, -3 Agi, then invent power armor or bionic limbs to move around. Durability means that surviving the operations is not an issue.
How am I cornered? Even the people arguing against me say the user who wastes less time, which is the pass user, has the responsibility >>34430667
That's the opposite of cornered. I've just been told I'm right. If you argue I'm not, you're arguing with the same anon who was just arguing with me.
You can't explain to our satisfaction why a pass holder has responsibility and others don't, so you claim not only that it doesn't matter where responsibility comes from, as well that others say the same thing when they don't.
I'm really embarrassed on your behalf right now. I'd tell you to stop posting, but you won't listen.
>You can't explain to our satisfaction why a pass holder has responsibility and others don't
I don't need to, this guy did >>34430667
Why are you so terrified of answering the question of whether or not you use a pass?
You're arguing with four or five people at this point, I'm afraid. He isn't the person you asked, he isn't the person you responded to in your post before this (who is I, and I'm someone who hasn't talked to you in several posts), and he probably isn't any of the three you responded to before that, and if he is then he's but one.
I think you're confusing me with someone else.
Additionally, >>34430667 does not say that pass holders have responsibility and others don't, much less explain it. Keep avoiding, I guess.
>He isn't the person you asked
I asked three different people, and it was an open question to all "four or five" of you.
Do you use a pass?
I don't. That poster says whether a user wastes their time determines whether they have responsibility. Ergo, pass users do.
Do you use a pass?
I don't and I've always firmly believed in the responsibility of the users to report rule breaking behavior and keep this a good site. Are you happy now? This information is completely irrelevant, but thankfully I'm a position to completely negate your argument of insinuated bias.
>thankfully I'm a position to completely negate your argument of insinuated bias
Are you saying you don't use a pass? Then come out and make it explicit, and explain your reticence about admitting it.
Shoving money down moot's throat because he is too stubborn to accept donations.
Remember how the passes came about? moot wrote about how much of his own money he was spending to maintain 4chan but would not accept charity in any way. Some people,
including me,wrote to him and convinced him that it would not be charity if people were paying for a service. I own a pass but don't use it on the PC. I sometimes, but not always use it on my smartphone. I would buy a pass if it did not allow me to bypass captcha.
because from the beginning having a pass was specifically made as something between you and the captcha server. It isn't 'gold membership', and having or not having it should not matter. You are no more a member of 4chan because you have a pass or do not.
Or, like >>34431137 do or do not use it if you have it.
I think they started out as someone whining about how bad they think this thread is because there was an argument, but seeing what they've wrought, good job I guess? What a hypocrite.
>because he is too stubborn to accept donations
Passes literally are a donation. At the bottom of this thread, it reads
>Please support 4chan by disabling your ad blocker on *.4chan.org/*, purchasing a self-serve ad, or buying a 4chan Pass.
Get it? "Please support 4chan"? It's a fucking donation. moot is not "stubborn" about not taking your money.
Whoever is the one arguing that it is not your responsibility to report posts. You are 100% right. It is a choice that people make because they think that this site is better if people follow the rules.
Passes have nothing to do with this. Whatever excuse you are using to justify you not doing it, the real reason is that you do not want to have those posts deleted. If you did, you would put up with the 'unbearable' burden of typing a dozen characters in. Or 2-6 numbers like it has been lately.
>I would buy a pass if it did not allow me to bypass captcha.
Why only one? What makes 4chan worth only a donation of $20?
I misread. My mistake, ok?
Have you tried reporting a post with your pass off?
>It isn't 'gold membership', and having or not having it should not matter.
The whole point of it is that it matters, for the purpose of evading captcha.
>It's a fucking donation.
Exactly. Those were the only methods that he would agree to for people to support 4chan with.
Will not accept money, or donated equipment,
or sex slaves.
If you do not think he is stubborn try to get him to accept $1200, without buying a shitton of passes.
>Whoever is the one arguing that it is not your responsibility to report posts.
I never said I don't. I said pass users do.
Have you tried reporting a post? Do you know what fills the report popup?
Maybe some users haven't been doing their "civic duty."
>Why only one? What makes 4chan worth only a donation of $20?
Who says I only bought one? I may or may not have. But bragging about it is stupid.
Is it your business how much I financially support 4chan?
There are nine links on the page I'm looking at right now asking for my money. They use the word Please. It's safe to say Christopher Poole is not shy when it comes to asking your your cash.
>Those were the only methods that he would agree to
Wrong, self-serve ads.
>Will not accept money
Buying passes with bitcoin is an option, not the only method.
>try to get him to accept $1200
>without buying a shitton of passes
What kind of cognitive dissonance is this?
It's sixty. It's very simple math.
Wow, why is water wizard so terrible? No strong specialties or magic, bad enchanting, elemental form with very limited range of usefulness outside of which it's useless, and summons completely confined to places where nobody lives. The de-aging is really bad too, because basically nothing works underwater. No electronics, no forging, no books, no doing anything whatsoever.
The creator is really very biased. He's not alone though, as every setting and every cyoa out there, in any form of media, always makes water one of if not the worst specialization. It's saddening.

Dead Bear Alpha
The plan is simple: Keep track of the fucker by doing odd jobs for the Judges. all the while using the Journal to identify any weaknesses. Then lure him underground, where I've prepared spiky pits and my companion has prepared IEDs. If I've found the weakness, I'll exploit it once the bear is as cornered as possible. If I haven't, I'll just try to collapse the tunnel on him and hope for the best.
I'm shitting on you?
You're shitting on me?
Your whole point is that you bought a pass because you wanted to give moot money. Do you see how that claim would be undermined if the exact cost of a pass turned out to be "coincidentally" exactly how much you wanted to donate?
I'm going to guess you buy passes as they run out. If you had multiple at once you'd use them on your PC and phone, which you said you don't.
So you only have one but you don't want to admit it. Why not? Maybe you hate bragging. But you already bragged about bragging. So it's because you know, like I just said, that it would undermine your claim that it was a donation. Why would you be worried about that? You tell me. My money is on "because it's not a donation."
At this point you are clearly arguing for the sake of arguing. And I am too lazy to follow all the way up this chain of links to determine if you are for or against sissy life being posted.
I think it is stupid to brag about it, yes.
But if you need to know, I bought $1200 worth of passes when they came out. I only have one now because I lost the cushy job, yet still want to support 4chan at least a little bit. $20 happens to be the minimum amount.
Just pointing out what 'moot doesn't want my money' when he's begging for it on this very page is an insulting lie.
He wants it both ways, where he's selling a product but you're not giving him money for the product. Where he's begging for your money but it's not a donation.
And you've fallen straight into that doublethink, somehow believing that he would turn down your money and that that would be meaningful when there's a donate button a click away..
So how come you didn't know that worked out at 60 passes? How many have you bought since then?
You're wrong, $20 isn't the minimum amount. You're treating it as a subscription, but that's only true if you're using it as a pass. If you're treating it as a donation, then you can "subscribe" for $10 by only buying a pass half as often.
But you don't do that, and the idea of doing that doesn't even occur to you. Why? Because you like having a current pass?
>And you've fallen straight into that doublethink, somehow believing that he would turn down your money
Past tense. He had turned down my money. What he is doing now doesn't matter to me. He could be lighting his crack pipe with $100 bills, 4chan exists because for years he paid out of pocket to keep it running, and I like 4chan existing.
To those people who claim christopher poole sold out, I say that it was surprising to me that his teenage naivete lasted so long and he didn't sell out sooner.
>Past tense. He had turned down my money.
How long before he instituted passes?
>To those people who claim christopher poole sold out
Selling out is handing over the site or control of it to corporate interests. He didn't do that. He just became a little corporation himself.

This is the life, man.
First thing I'll do is build a boat, with whatever I can find on the island. Seems like you can at least wander up to other peoples' islands unlike the purgatory CYOA, so I might as well drop by and saw hello-or fly up to troll some Floating Garden islanders. Might even be fish to catch, who knows? And if I ever get bored of wandering I'll just go home and make literal sand castles. Maybe I can even start a community project to build a HUGE sandcastle dwarfing everybody's island
just as planned.
Damned if I know. Wanna CYOA? Pretty sure it's by the same guy who did the new island one.
You're ignoring this observation
>You're wrong, $20 isn't the minimum amount. You're treating it as a subscription, but that's only true if you're using it as a pass. If you're treating it as a donation, then you can "subscribe" for $10 by only buying a pass half as often.
>But you don't do that, and the idea of doing that doesn't even occur to you. Why? Because you like having a current pass?
You so want to avoid the topic that you'll just ignore it to instead reply about what you later reveal to be an utter irrelevance.
That sounds about right.
EMPRAH with Death as assistant.
Gather manpower, resources and financial backing for what's ostensibly an exotic business venture on the borders of the southern continent. When the Threat arrives, everyone who's put money into my venture will be alerted of it, and with my "security forces" I'll hold off the Threat and distribute intel to the world's governments.
Walking Bro is there to slap the shit out of anyone who threatens me, and as a last resort against the Threat.
Guys, does it really matter? This isn't a is Moot a Jew or not thread, this is as CYOA thread.
Case in point
$20 dollars is the minimum amount. Buying a pass once in a while does not match my idea of continuing to support 4chan.
That is why I do use the pass on my phone some of the time. The pass not working is a good reminder that it is about time I donated again.
What exactly are you trying to prove again? I forgot...
Whatever it is, I vehemently deny your implication that I did it.
Fairly linear (best for getting stuff done)
Innate (I'm a TARDIS now. TARDISes are cool)
Reinforced Hull: 15 (I'm buff as hell apparently)
Sonic Blaster: 9
Sustainable Power Source: 6 (Don't want to find out how you charge a humanoid TARDIS)
Space Suit: 1 (More valuable than you'd think, considering planets rotate and starts detonate and so forth. Might accidentally end up in space through no fault of my own. Or entombed under miles of dirt for that matter)
Towel: 0 (Why not?)
Sparky (May have to buy leash)
Jenny (Definately buy leash)
Just going by the common parlance for "greedy, manipulative asshole" around here, anon.
Anyway, another cyoa.
>Buying a pass once in a while does not match my idea of continuing to support 4chan.
But that's what $20 whenever your pass runs out is. You buy a pass when the product expires. Hardly a donation.
>What exactly are you trying to prove again? I forgot...
>Whatever it is, I vehemently deny your implication that I did it.
This thing goes with this other thing I'm about to post
What's with all the hostility? What did I ever do to you, I just post these things.
I really don't understand. I never picked that. I never picked anything.
Classic CYOA coming through. A relic from way back before newfangled ideas like "point build" or "how am I supposed to choose these things"

Being a website gives me the most opportunities to enter the real world. I can Possess, Command, and Mind Control people to both spread the word and access the website at homes, schools, workplaces, anywhere with an internet connection.
My opponents (Nemesis and Hunter) will definitely be tough as hell, but if I get rid of them and the Hunter's family I'll be near unstoppable.
