Title: THE START
Post by: Jubal on July 01, 2014, 05:18:02 PM
WELCOME to EXILIAN: AN EPONYMOUS CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE.

In this ADVENTURE, you will traverse STRANGE LANDS and do STRANGE THINGS with STRANGERS and possibly even STRANGE QUARKS. Safe to say it will be a STRANGE EXPERIENCE.

Some of it might even be written without weird all-caps sections.

First you must choose a protagonist to begin with! Your vision swims in front of your eyes as you see a range of possible futures and lives to embark upon. These may or may not become entangled - who knows? Are they even in the same city? Continent? Universe?

Your first option is to be an eagle-armed huntress riding her horse across the vast and open plains of Tasmangolia. You are TIBULA KHAN, young ruler and queen of the TASMANGOLIAN KHANATE.

The second option is a mammal with wide scales, an astonishing ability to walk up trees on its hind legs, and claws that can dig through concrete. This is ADONIBAL BARCA, a highly intelligent PANGOLIN SCHOLAR, currently sailing a TRIREME over the southern seas.

Thirdly, you could become COMRADE GENERAL ANGUS, a VERY COMMUNIST MINOTAUR with a number of GUNS, somewhere in the MIDWEST. What it is the MIDWEST of seems unclear. There are ZOMBIES here.

Your final option is to be BEESNOT LUMPWAGON, living in a LOCKED BASEMENT. It's unclear why anyone would want to be BEESNOT LUMPWAGON, but that's how things roll around here.

Hmm, I can see who the first three are 'based' from. But Beesnot Lumpwagon? Who is that making fun of? Or is that one original?

Beesnot is original. And is also a reference/homage to Homestuck, where before each character gets their proper name the "player" attempts to name them something like Zoosmell Pooplord.  :P

And it's all going to be in second person. Right?

Yes, CYOAs are certainly always traditionally in second person :)

Just making sure, the one that Tom posted was in 3rd person, I edited it for him though. :)
