THE START
« 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.

> TIBULA: Be Tibula Khan
> ADONIBAL: Be a Pangolin
> ANGUS: Shoot stuff
> BEESNOT: Mope in a feeble fashion.

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?

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.

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. :)
