Here's a dropbox with a LOT of CYOA's:
Here's Beri's OC (genie cyoa+)
Here's Liminal Phrenic's blog with most of his cyoa stuff theouterworlds.blogspot.com
Here's Spadesy's wordpress with most of his cyoa stuff feathersnake.wordpress.com
List of Some Image Resources:
No, if you get twenty you can only pick from 20 or 1
If you get 100 you can choose any of the options because they are all 'below' yours.
Your choices are decided by the numerical value, not the physical position of the choice on the table.
I had a weird idea for a CYOA. It's everything to do with the colour Red - Red CYOA. So everything you could or would associate with the colour Red is available as an option. Fire, passion power, lovemaking, lazorbeemz, meat, you name it. You could also do Yellow CYOA, with stuff like bee powers, butter and cheese, sunlight, jealousy and cowardice, gold coins and so on.
Anyone interested? Looking for suggestions and/or pics, this would benefit from visuals
Yes i was clearly the only one to not understand this.
The problem is that the sentence lacks an object.
You have three prepositions and no object, so you have a syntax problem.
It should've been something like
>choose a row from the table at or below what you rolled
>She gm a game for you and her cute friends
Ok, she loves to cook and clean. I only hope she dont put her master-servant fetish into my game
>1 month vacation with her
Cool, a vacation with a very outgoing girl
>twins in a way you prefer, a cibor girl
I was not prepared for this
Also, platonic friend with a girl that is so much shy to admit her feelings. That was predictable
The first 3 are pretty good in real life. The last is like... well, is too good to be true
> Remember after all these years
> mfw I'm now a clumsy but cute girl

Beri: 25. Another speedy fast CYOA. Cool.
I meant builds that can result in interaction. Even if I had read Highlander I still wouldn't have a clue what you just posted.
this is where you call me an illiterate faggot for not having read Highlander, then I call you a faggot for liking something so long, then we go back and forth and boom!
I can understand why you wouldn't read it, there's a lot there and can be intimidating because it'll be a time sink/commitment. I only read it when it was 1 am and I couldn't sleep so I started to make a build. As for the thread, it's mid-day on a Friday, expect the thread to be slow. It'll pick up from here onward to Monday.

Shitposting is easy, but ending an argument with proper citations and documented sources? Where both parties have reached a common or compromised consensus?
That turns my dick into diamonds.
Someone last thread asked about me and this CYOA.
I decided to give up on improving it. The moral of it can't come across if the girls were more appealing.
That moral is simply "sins are bad, m'kay?" We're all somewhat intelligent people, we'd understand (if reminded) that sins aren't just about "muh devotion to God", but are truly things to avoid taking too far for our own good.
Lust leads to ruination both physical and mental. You will distance yourself from others by chasing after your lusts without restriction.
Gluttony hurts yourself, and one wastes things they do not need. You distance yourself from others through disgust.
Greed will make you and others miserable. You will distance yourself from others due to your reduced ability for compassion to others.
Sloth will lead you to waste away. You will not cultivate yourself or your skills, and you will be miserable as you wallow away. You will distance yourself from others by using, mooching, and taking them for granted. They will also no respect you at all, as you contribute nothing to anything, even yourself.
Wrath will eat you up on the inside, creating a vicious cycle of getting angry, which creates a desire to get angry again, making it easier to get angry. The cycle will send you deeper and deeper into despair. You will alienate yourself from others by how hateful, unforgiving, and generally unpleasant you are.
Envy shares qualities of lust, greed, and wrath. It is never satisfied, and will mentally sicken you, sending you into a cycle of despair. You will alienate others through your inability to show real kindness and gratitude toward others.
Pride is perhaps the only sin that doesn't have a direct negative effect on you. Its consequences are completely external. Like the guy in a multiplayer game who yells at his teammates, saying their loss is all their fault, or cocky athlete who thinks that if the coach hadn't put them on the bench so much, they'd have won every game.
Pride's negative effect is the most insidious: it prevents you from helping yourself. You will think to highly of yourself, and be too stubborn, thus making you commit the numerous follies that can come from such things.
You will not be able to trust others, or really accept help from them. Your worldview will become distorted, because you are only willing to accept your own interpretation.
It is subtle, and yet ruinous.
Now, conveying all this in CYOA is tough enough, but conveying it in a way that somehow makes these things appealing would be completely missing the point of it in the first place.
So, I simply decided to think of a better way to convey my half-baked philosophic ramblings than a CYOA place where most people just want to be spurg out and/or masturbate.
Your CYOA is not a matter of conveying the sins in the characters. Rather, it's about formulating people based on the sins. In result, they come across as incredibly one dimensional. Unappealing.
Making them interesting is not about making them fap bait. It's called characterization.
How would you characterize them in this case?
Room was also a factor. I couldn't add too many details, otherwise there wouldn't be enough room to fit on the page. This wouldn't be a problem if I started from scratch, but I also want to avoid walls 'o text.
But you can't touch 2D girls.
The problem is you're saying "which do you want" and all the choices are bad. Being deliberately bad doesn't make it okay; people are still going to refuse. That's just common sense.
>Pride is perhaps the only sin that doesn't have a direct negative effect on you.
Wrong. If you're cocky, then you can easily wind up in a situation where you're way out of your depth. You take on too many responsibilities, or too difficult ones, or go into a dangerous situation, thinking you can handle it. You can't, and you ruin yourself.
Give them personality traits outside of their sins. Make sure the sins are within 'tolerable, if barely' levels so people might actually WANT to save them.
Lust for example doesn't NEED her to fuck anyone but you, someone who is loyal but has a ridiculous libido and needs constant sex is going to be a problem, realistically. You just need to get that across.
Oh, right, and as far as the girls go, Eva, since she's reliably rich and I don't have many expenses. I don't have anything for her to really bitch about and with all my problems, I'm just kind of a drag. I can out-terrible any of the girls on the list.
>Armed with Wings
>The Fire Witch
First option is always diplomacy. Only draw steel when there is no other option.
When in civilized lands i work as healer and bard, all while teaching Mek'kem about humanity, showing him what humanity can achieve when working together to a common goal in harmony.
In battle with monsters and other mindless creatures i protect us with barriers and my shield and i will layeth the smackdown on any beast or monster foolhardy enough to close with me.
I explained that in the second post, those are all what I'd consider "external" things. You aren't directly, physically or mentally hurting yourself. But your interpretation is also valid, so eh.
Just posting pictures I didn't use now.
Someone suggested that Lust be a loyal nympho, but I disagree. Only wanting one person, and loyally staying with them no matter how much your raging sex drive is telling you to get with other people would be an example of chastity, no?
Lust, as I'm sure you know, also encompasses things like power, drugs, and really any abstract desire. Hell, you can lust after the joy of video games. So that has to be in there too somehow.
There's plenty of room for text, and increasing the size in this design isn't incredibly hard if you need more. Besides, as someone who likes to write, I can vouch that it isn't about the amount of text you can fit. A good writer will use 500 words to convey a character differently than in 1000 words. It comes down to your writing skills.
You start off Gracie with a blunt description about how unappealing she is. That makes me want to immediately stop right there. What's the hook? You're giving me choices and making it obvious not to choose this one. Why is it so difficult for you to highlight her personality first? Hit the reader with the con points when they understand the character first, because we have now formulated a disgusting, pigfat character in our heads. There's no reason to pick her unless you want to reel in people with a disgusting fat fetish.
Every girl is basically "HEY THIS GIRL IS THE EMBODIMENT OF (SIN), THAT'S PRETTY MUCH IT".
Why would I want to date a sin, and not a person?
Not the anon, but it seems that anon was merely using hyperbole to exaggerate how ludicrous the waifu CYOAs on here can get.
I know it's not hard to increase the design space.
The other stuff you're right on. Hook first, then flaw.
Maybe have it like Gabriel's trying to sell you on them, but it doing an ever so slightly bad job on it?
Okay, anon. I feel bad because I saved this CYOA without responding. (And I actually like it 7 sins give me a massive boner!)
Pride, and day of the week I would pick the pride girl.
Envy, Gluttony, and Lust were kind of in the running, but would never beat out my shitty waifu Pride.
Literally the only way for this scenario to be any plainer is for the heavenly host to descend to your front doorstep and hand you Gabriel's horn for use as a phone with which to receive his call.

Demon Marked and Irritating Rival Princess (+11)
Final: 36-11 = 25
I get dropped off in my new house and I am greeted by new Lamia friend. Use some of my coin to furnish our new home and use the rest for food and supplies until stable work is found. One day in the market I cross a princess in disguise by besting her in some form of competition. Little did I know then, that from that point on she would make a vow never to loose to me again and would seek me out to try to best me at whatever new game she had found or made up. Little did the princess know that each time she lost to me she would become outwardly angry, but inwardly...aroused? Not to be out done, a much different princess would be watching my life from a far and begin to crave what I bring to people's lives. The Succubus princess sends many minions and mercenaries to retrieve me, but they always seem to fail. She even comes for me herself sometimes, but it usually ends with a very flustered and confused Succubus fleeing my rivals army as she's chased from my bed chambers. An exciting yuri themed adventure in this modern fantasy city, but I am always happy to know that each day will end with a good meal and loving Lamia snuggles.
I want to see an alien invasion in a modern fantasy. Is that too much? Just, suddenly aliens, and everyone panics, then magical girls and shit hop out of the city to kick 'em in the dick.

Jesus dude I'm a huge waifufag but I'm not giving up my ability to enjoy life just to get my dick wet, gotta be an overall win by the end of the cyoa if I'm gonna bother participating.
In any case, since the entire point of the cyoa is helping these chicks make a life change, why not expand on that by adding gifts to aid you in your quest to reform them? You know, a logical progression from the entire objective of the cyoa. There's a lot you can do with this without needing to scrap what you already have.

Let's go with it. Crazy wizard bullshit here to fend off the aliens. With yuri.
Maybe a boon/disadvantage could be aliens depending on whether you are looking for an invasion or just something different. Although I have to agree that there is little out there that involves Earthlings with magic being confronted by aliens. Hell, the closest thing I can think of is Sailor Moon since the idea that the girls, their powers, and the bad guys all related to space in some way.
Making her someone who just has a lot of desire would work. As in, she gets really super-into things - she falls in love with a hobby and devotes all her time to it, she falls in love with a game and won't stop playing, she falls in love with a view and keeps going there every day. Intensely passionate, but to the point of self-destruction.
>purging by drinking alcohol
>extra cal intake
Anyway, I choose Priss and persuade her to camwhore with me. I'll take her nude picture, because selfies are boring and anybody can take them, and exhibitionistic couples are more popular than single girls.
Alright, made some changes based on the feedback I got. Most importantly added "and/or" instead of just a slash.

okay, but it's not balanced. NTR is the ultimate instant 'no.' Fatties are an instant 'no' to a lot of people, and it's exacerbated by her entire life being invested in pro-fat culture. These two aren't just lustful or gluttonous - even if you fix them, you still lost. The other characters can be fixed and have a happy ending with you. Greed doesn't even necessarily need to be fixed for a happy ending.
I would consider picking Lust if she was not a girlfriend, but a fuckbuddy that buys you coke and helps you hook up with girls/guys.
The rest would be a matter of fluff - she has to feel like a person.

Elaborate on what you get for curing each girl of their unhealthy vices. Unless Gabriel saved my life AND sucked my dick at this party I met him at, I wouldn't date a single one of these. List a reward for each. If you can get Pride to stop being so stuck up, she'll learn some humility, succeed as an actress, and thank you, her loving husband, when she wins big awards. Greed stops being spoiled, makes huge money, and sets up you and all your friends for life. Lust settles down, loves you deeply, and doesn't do that kind of thing anymore except to get you threesomes with the other sins.

There once was a minstrel of song
Who was neither clever or strong
Who tread below and above
Preaching the message of love
When she met the monstrous horde and king
She proposed peace with a golden ring
Sealed and delivered with his offspring
And upon the Kaitos inferno
He Introduced a starry Virgo
Now they waltz the night eternal
Against the chesswolf's genius
He exploited every weakness
Surprised by a turn one penis
When faced with the sphinx's riddle
He split her right down the middle
Stringed and played her like a fiddle
To the fool King who sought a prize
A book to teach him to be wise
Gifted a more Delightful surprise
He happened upon the silent village, seeking a room
Everyone thought he finally met his match and doom
But yet he returned very much alive with a seed in every womb
And Kasper did request his aid
To shadow a bewitching maid
Who returned only to get laid

Why do I feel like this is ...incomplete somehow. Perhaps it's due to lacking in perks, companions, or lore. I want to know more about this setting and its inhabitants. Mayhaps the original creator could consider adding more to it? I really like this CYOA though.

B) She got hurt somewhere in her past.

It's easy to understand why these threads are dying.
It's because there's not enough content coming out.
People just pile into the threads, dump the same CYOAs everyone has seen dozens of times before, and hope for something new.
And then when something new does come, sometimes it's either shit, or just doesn't appeal to you.
So you go back to waiting.
These thrads are fun for newcomers, but to the people who have been here for a while, you end up scrolling through the whole thread, seeing the same content as the last thread.
And you ignore it, because you're done with it. You've got your fill of builds and now you're sick of it.
So i the board stagnates because there's not enough new content, sometimes none at all, just the same reposts over and over again.
I wish I was a newfag on here again, just to make browsing these threads worthwhile again.
Patience, anon. Content is coming.
Now you are just giving me an excuse to post a preview.

So, I'm gonna need to make a few changes to this house. Magic time, bitchy little house. Give it a fireplace, a large bedroom, an attached bath, a storage room, a kitchen, and a sitting area around the fireplace. All fancy as shit. Oh, and a nice little bedroom behind the fireplace with a cot, a chest, a water spigot, and a side-table with a candle, water-jug, and drinking glass.
That's my room. The rest of it?
I'm a magically-assisted, shapeshifting, gender-shifting whore. The rest of my house is my front/work space. No one knows I'm a kobold and I am always the cleanest, best mannered, most accommodating whore(s) in town, with the best customer service, even among actual established shops.

Willem Hellswarth was first born to Forgelord Hellswarth of Falkus' favored city-state of Ferron. The day of his birth was one of grand celebration, as the Forgelord of the time was raised to his station from a life of bronze work, and many feared that he would fall prey to the infertility endemic to his trade.
Unfortunately, his son was not as fortunate. Born crippled and weak, Willem was hidden away from the public under the guise of training to increase his chances to succeed his father. In reality, he was bed-ridden for most of his life. He wished earnestly to meet his father's expectations, to fulfill his wishes, and as such every year on the day of his birth would ask for the opportunity to attempt to lift the hammer of the Forgelord's office. Suffice it to say, the effort was for naught, and soon Forgelord Hellswarth's pity turned to embarrassment turned to hatred. A second son was begotten, healthy of body and loved by his father, but crippled of soul and fate. Ferron gradually forgot Willem the firstborn.
Willem rejected the life of quiet sickness allotted him, and shifted his efforts from the practical to the theoretical, learning the fire and smithing arts forgotten and forbidden to the public of Ferron. On the day of his twentieth, after years of chiseling his very bones, Willem threw himself into the blazing eddies of the Sacred Forge of Falkus in the throne room of Ferron.
Willem died that day, blown apart and subsumed by the hunger of the forge, remembered by few and mourned by even fewer. Soon, however, his disparate remains surfaced in Falkus' very forge. Falkus saw the weakness off the work that had been placed into this piece, yet saw the inner strength of the material, the potential of the ruined craft before him. From Willem's corpse Falkus forged a man to meet the mettle, and cast him back into his forge to fulfill his will in the world above.
Willem emerged anew, empowered by the true Forgelord, and saw that in his long absence being forged to perfection, Ferron had fallen under the ministrations of his brother, an inept successor to his father. Taking the hammer of office that was his and is alone by right, Willem Hellswarth, forged of Falkus, set forth. Set forth to enact his lord's will, to create works that would sing the glories of Falkus, and to ensure that never again would a tool, a man, an idea be forged to less than its potential.

Because it looks like he wrote her by going down the list of the theological definition of humility. They tend to have a lot of overlap between the two. Its a failing of Kristal then Isda's though. Isda fits Humility perfectly though.

Might as well an Erica. I could help out with her patrols, I already got some experience with that sort of thing. But more importantly, I'll see what I can do to help her loosen up; even if I fail at least I'll keep her company at the party.

I pick the personality of Jeeves and appearance of Carrie.
Bank Satellite is objectively the best choice. The bodies and suits are pointless unless you want to become some kind of mercenary, and why would you? The houses are nice, but with unlimited funding you could buy many houses and the added functionality isn't that great. Mobile Command Center is a fancy mobile home, might as well buy an RV, or have a house in each place you'd want to go. Luxury home can be done almost as well with servants. If the two were combined and the MCC was an airship, that might be kind of cool but that's the only way it could possibly stand against the power of money. The other satellites are gimmicks.
Hard Light for two points gives the benefit of the android body. Wrist communicator gives me a hotline to more dosh. Projector screen means all sorts of cool and convenient stuff can be done anywhere, even if it's connecting to a big box that's wired up somewhere else. Nanobot injection means I'll have a long and healthy life. Leaves one point, so I guess color modifier for a better display.
>but would never hurt you
It says she barely cares about you, and as property instead of a person to boot. If you annoy her enough she probably will in fact hurt you.
Well, one anon assured me it would work on Angel, so why not Vera too?
>not wanting to dom the most resistant AI
That's neat. I wonder if you can appoint someone else to lead and you to just help in other aspects once you design the kingdom.
Will I be able to make a kingdom of lizardmen with tribes based around music genres and instruments being sacred weapons and whatnot? A kingdom of bards so to speak with powerful song magic. Who's main trade is entertainment.
but I can do that fine, at least I aspire to.
But I hate it when I see someone post something nice. That AI one, that just has a neat, seamless background of a motherboard or whatever, that feels like it rivvals nice.
This isn't nice. This is basic. This is "oh, I'll just slap on a gradient to make the background not so dull".
well that's more freeform than the system, the idea is the central empire is already defined by the document, and you're more defining your role in it.
So not a kingdom of bards, but a fief run by lizardmen with bard magic is totally an option within the Central Empire.
Hey Anon. Remember! It's not what the CYOA looks like, its the content.
If you can't accept this than get fucking good you piece of shit pleb.
I'm trying, you mean boy.
Backgrounds are the hardest, finding some that fit the setting, then some that aren't obtrusive to the text and all, then making it all look good.
Thank you for the kind words.
well, it can't be Bliss what with him leaving forever.
It has to be an American given when it was posted at 2:20 am CET and his PC says it's 8:20 pm. That limits the possibilities.
There are simple tricks you can use to spruce up a visual look.
You could put a thin border of another color around the outside of the grey area and maybe add a slight drop shadow to it.
You could put a background behind your text segments that's another color from the grey background.
You can make little plaques that the title text goes into and use that as the top of each section.
You can do a search for premade borders and use those, like a gold leaf or something.
The attached image was done pretty fast with simple effects
oh. Well I'll be darned.
I thought he had died for our sins.
>this was done fast
yeah, but you know what to do. You spend less time making something nice than I did making something that just looks "okay".
I'd like to do the thing you did with the textbox. It's nice, it's not just one, bland color. Would you mind going into more detail with how you did that.
My biggest problem is if I manage to figure out how I want something to look, I don't know how to do it.

Yes I understand that. Sometimes I just muck around with filters till I get something I really like and then I can't remember what I did hehehe.
1. Ok so for these text boxes I took an easy route and chose a blue color and white, though a pale blue would work too. I didn't want the blue to be too dark so I kept it in the medium range of blues.
2. I then made a rectangular selection for the size of the text boxes I wanted on a new layer (with it on a layer i can move it around and copy it easily to use in other places) and then went Filter > Render > Clouds and did that a few times till I liked what I saw.
3. I then ran Filter > Pixelate > Crystalize and adjusted the facets till i thought they looked good.
4. It was a bit bright for the background so I then dropped the layers transparency down to about 80% so the background showed through slightly which also helps to tie the look together. Some artists once they've done a digital painting will fill a layer with a single color and then reduce the transparency of the layer till it;'s almost invisible to help tie the whole thing together.
5. I finally just added a simple stroke to the outside to give it a simple border.
And that's it.
To help learn you can always post a cropped part of someone elses cyoa and ask how you can achieve a similar effect and someone may know.
Look at things you like design wise and ask yourself what exactly it is you like about that design. Then think about how you may do something like that yourself and if you get stuck you can ask for assistance here or maybe on the graphics board though they can be pretty harsh over there.
TRICK: Once you have a background/border/whatever made that you want to use in other spots you can make a copy of it and just change the hue/saturation to make it a different color without having to redo the whole thing. There is also, on the hue/saturation panel, a colorize button that can help in doing this.
Gotta play with both blending options AND filters now. There are just so dang many.
Also, that "change color" is a really nice idea. I've been going a roundabout way instead.
And thanks for mentioning there's a cloud filter. I actually need a cloud for a background, and I found a picture that suits my needs, but it's kinda meh.
I think I'll try this instead.

Fuckslut on the side.
I'll have a divine affair with a female God and end up raping her, then I'll rape the Boss Monster into a nice fuckslut, rape the Sphinx and mindbreak her into subservience, then it's off to the Fire Witch to make her addicted to the bull dick.
Finally, Door to Door for more rape time.
I only come here once a month or so, and this is the blandest I've seen one of these generals. I must have missed some good stuff, I'll check the archive.
And new content is always rolling in. Try making one yourself, anon. I have an affinity for the silly ones like >>44652638 too.
Yeah, it's been pretty wild with a bunch of new SDA content and a few other CYOAs lately. The threads kind of explode for SDA, and it must have been the holidays or something, but we got a lot of new stuff from other people too.
Why are CYOAs poste as images? Text should be text. Text can be copied and pasted, edited, reflowed, magnified, indexed, searched, translated, and read aloud with text-to-speech. And text is faster to download than images on slow connections.
And so I shall "fall" to these maidens, pure of heart, forever stripped of the duties of a reaper as my light is brought fourth. A choice to become a reaper or to die isn't a choice at all, but luckily another option was unwittingly given.
My cult will serve to empower these guardians, strengthen their abilities to turn foe to friend. In time others will come, and join us in our crusade against those that would bring death to entire worlds so their own lives may be prolonged.
Different anon here. The continuation of the box.
To be fair
this guy is right. Throw it at the wall and see if it sticks.
I know I'm too stupid to get through a wall of text with out some pretty pics to keep me going but that's just me.
yeah, I'm gonna treat it like every other pastebin ie. unfinished, and ignore it.
But hey, if he wants it, then by all means he can do it.
We both know he won't do shit. Whining is easier than doing.
Because you can't edit the text here. It's just a wall of text. In an image you can place it wherever you want, add pictures wherever you want, use any font and size you want, etc.
People have tried making CYOA-like posts of text, but it never works.
I don't read most of the posts in these threads, I click the little pretty picture.
And close it if it's too text dense.
I'm sure not going to follow a link to what is likely nothing but text.
Not just stupid, also lazy.
this looks so much better than what I had done with a seamless background. I think pixelating things makes them look weird, but it might be different if you're doing it for a textbox, and not a background.
Again, thank you.
You know, I could simply reply with a ":^)" and my post would be less shitty than your poor attempt at baiting.
I've seen too many interesting concepts never be finished. I've seen too many halfproducts. I get my hopes up, wait, and never get anything out of it.
I blueball myself.
Half finished CYOAs can be worth reading you know. Reading traveller as it was made was great and even if he had never written it all there were already fun ideas in the first draft. Prettiness is overrated, I just want to be entertained. I would prefer to see a half finished Cyoa than never see it at all. Well, that's what I think.
>Half finished CYOAs can be worth reading you know
Waiting weeks or month for the creator to finish it, but it never happens, isn't.
>Prettiness is overrated
I disagree. And that's fine. I'll keep trying to make my own CYOA's prettier.

Which is presented better?
what CYOAs are yours anon? I want to make one but I don't know how to use photoshop and I'm worried if it looks bad it will get ignored. How easy did you find it to make neat CYOAs?
>which are yours
Under different circumstances, I'd gladly answer
>how to use photoshop
Have you downloaded SDA's guides? I don't have the pdf one? My two first one's pretty much just used this + make a shape, put the picture layer above the box layer and hit "create clipping mask" and change the size of the picture
>ugly ones will be ignored
Plenty people ITT have said content and world building are vastly more important than looks.
My first was a little hard because I tried to emulate Star Dust, and there were many boxes to align. But really, it wasn't that bad. Just took time. Decide how big your boxes should be, what the distance between each box and the border should be. BEFORE you start making and alligning the boxes.
It will save you some time later when you have to redo the alignments.
I am not the right person to ask that, sorry.
Is that just copying what your mother said she would do to me, after you told her I took your purity? Listen here young lady, if you tell grownups something like that, they get the wrong idea. I bet your parents just use "tail" as a euphemism when you're around anyway and-
"What's a euf-ee-mism?"
I generally dislike CYOAs with too much drawbacks or challenges, but i liked this one. Sure, those waifus suck, but at least you are not forced into it like in prison cyoas or something. And those drawbacks makes sense in the context and it's refereshing to see 7 sins cyao that not gives you demonic powers but actually makes you work againstt hem. I still enjoyed thinking whic i would choose, even if it's not a kind of cyoa which i will spend a lot of time imagineng myself adventuring in.
Get a load of those newfriends replying to the dead genre fish, cyoam.
It's OK to respond to the fish. No-one has actually refuted his point yet, which is valid if extremely annoying. It's a community problem, and I think the big problem is that we're not doing enough with CYOAs. If we could show they were useful for more than posting builds or waifu arguments it would be much easier to sell people on them.
I actually dislike when CYOAs get their own threads or rp or quest threads based on them, but that's me. That way i only see the fish as baiting and being ironic by talking about lack of content when each new thread is full of OC.
Sure, I'm willing to do a lot to not study right now.
>sometimes it's either shit, or just doesn't appeal to you
not the creators fault, unless they make something hyperspecific / fetishshit.
>not enough content coming out
Completely valid, except more content =/= more replies. SDA got a shitload more posts from something that took two days than I'll ever make.
Some CYOA's are better made for posting once (waifu stuff), other's can generate discussion or you can do it in multiple ways (super soldier).
>we're not doing enough
Completely agree. My goal is always to get people to write what they plan to do with their choices, to get people to reply to eachother and ask. Basically, what Angelanon usually does, I want people to do on their own.
I almost always fail, but I haven't been completely demotivated yet.
You too? My exam is on Monday.
>SDA got a shitload more posts from something that took two days than I'll ever make.
SDA is good at a lot of things, so while he doesn't make CYOAs better looking than Bliss does, he's amazing at reading these threads and their community. He can take something that people on /tg/ like and turn it into a sophisticated, readable piece that hits /tg/'s favourite spots. I don't think any other author is as good at that.
just gotta memorize every substrate, reaction, enzyme, product, every part of an enzyme complex and what each subunit does.
I don't know which chapters I get questioned in, so I need to know it all.
I checked last year's exam, and seriously, most questions are just "what is the name of this structure" or "what enzyme does this". Not asking if I've understood everything, just asking for the name.
Which reactions, is this all over molecular biology? Will they be asking about glycolysis, respiration, dark reactions, DNA replication and transcription, or 'niche' stuff? I don't know anything about the enzyme complexes. We only ever had to remember the enzyme names so we could mention them once in an answer and pretend we understood the process in question.
Must be easy for the lecturers to write, though.
Off the top of my head, I need to know: Glycolysis, gluconeogenesis, glycogenolysis, glycogenesis, beta oxidation, fatty synthesis, citric acid cycle, electron transport chain, photophosphorylation (dark + light reactions).
I can be asked to name/recognize any substrate or enzyme in any of those reactions. Fuck yeah it's easy to make the exam. Just go to any random page and ask to name that one thing.
One question was "Which complex does reation a that changes b into c?". Easy to answer, if you can remember.
And exactly. I don't have the time or memory to actually know how this works. Just remember it for now, then forget almost everything by next week.
Like the idea of mainly having to choose challenges and targets to take down, but the setting and most of the content feels a little iffy...
I can't tell if I'm supposed to be an assassin or a hostage negotiator, given the number of targets I can simply talk things out with...
Also, what kind of setting are you going for here? The companions and some of the targets make me think it should be like a sort of Urban Fantasy, but then along comes Osprey and suddenly some "minor Kingdoms to the North" start popping up. And what's with the whole "abduction"-shtick?
Don't know if this is still a work in progress or an abandoned project, but the companions could be expanded; as is, there are very few combinations one can do with them. Maybe throwing in at least a few more -1s and -3s in there could help...
But keep Luna. She's a good girl. Yes she is...!
What the actual fuck.
Is her mother tumblr incarnate?
>He touched a body part of yours?!?!
>He must suffer hell on earth before being subjected to the most gruesome and and agonizing death.
Man, last year I had an awful exam on molecular. Ours are based on three long (3-4 page) answers and I completely fucked it up, I only managed to pull through because I had memorised how to draw the Krebs cycle and work out all the names from that. If it was all short answers I would never have passed. That was when I realised I wasn't going to keep taking molecular bio modules.
yeah, I'm mostly trying to memorize the cycles. Last year, one full question was "fill in the blanks" of the citric acid cycle.
Complete bullshit. Why am I supposed to memorize this?
Unfortunatel, they haven't told us how many questions must be right, so I haven't a clue if I'll pass or not.
A lot of my friends have posters of the big cycles in their rooms and were trying to draw them from memory during revision, and I guess that would probably work, but otherwise it's not the sort of thing that my brain thinks is learnable really. A bit like vectors (seriously, fuck promoter probe vectors). Really simple shapes but attaching the right words to the right places makes my memory shut down and refuse to co-operate.
Good luck man, I hope you ace it.

exam on tuesday about basic chemistry because that's a class i missed first semester.
Still a lot of memorizing but not especially difficult. My little sister learns the same stuff for junior high.
But i's still rather take a difficult biophysics exam than a quantum physics exam where i missed a lot the stuff that was taught and lack some of the prerequisites. My anxiety acted up and i became literally physically sick to the point where i luckily missed the exam.
I have no idea what you're talking about.
However, just touching a tail shouldn't be the prelude to a most agonizing death.
Not even the original kitsune were that evil.
Creativity satellite can get you a lot of money without having to steal it from others. It's a more gradual process, mind, but look at JK Rowling. On the other hand, bank satellite can't get you that level of creativity.
thx m8. Honestly, this is one exam where I'd be okay with just passing.
You need more luck than I do.
Are you allowed to bring notes to your chemistry exam? I personally didn't think my chemistry exam last year was hard, but we could bring notes and the book.
So long as you could recognize what the different org chem groups were, it wasn't that bad.
Couldn't have known that don't have the game nor money for it.
But thanks dude.
You know that would make the job description even better.
>Looking for skilled personnel as Negotiator/Assassin. Extensive stealth, willingness to kill and social abilities required and foreknowledge of the work appreciated.
That's remarkably similar to what I had to know for my first semester in medicine.
so what? even if i touch someones vagina i shouldn't be killed for it
not to mention that i didn't know it was their genitalia
I actually think i will ask the people making the quantum physics class to let me retake the exam next semester.
There has been too much fuckery this semester and i got hurdles thrown my way which were ridiculous.
no notes for chemistry, but as i said we need to learn about the same amount of stuff that my little sister in juinior high learned two months ago.
Yes this would be good. If your not trying not too make them attractive at first at least give the reader a glimpse into how things could be if you succeed.
Having said that Gisela or Eva for me. I feel so sad for Winona despite the fact I can't stand a SJW. Priss would be a maybe but she's too close to the cheating line for me to like.
i don't think that would work because we learned about spectroscopic methods too.
In fact that was mostly what the semester was about.
The other half, "basic knowledge" is just expected somehow.
