In case anyone might be interested:

Bee Bonk's most excellent Co-Op/PVP Sci-Fi survival game,

is entering its second "Season" of play!

Signups have begun for new Wreckers and Sponsors for Heap 2 / Map 1 of Wrecking Crew!
(Updates regularly: 6 nights / week!)

Notably, all the original player's characters from Episodes/Maps 1 & 2 have either died or retired by this point. There will only be two first-time veterans coming back onto the field and everyone else will be starting anew. It's a newbie's game out there!

Come join us in tele-fragging space horrors while getting closer to the futuristic human ideal: a hulking neosoldat cyberdemon who utters monosyllabic blessings to the gun-gods as they rend and tear through technoflesh.

A strong recommendation from me too, the game owns, Bee owns and is a machine at updating. More people should play with us!

Thirding the recommendation. If you don't have much time to participate you can act as a sponsor, buying items for the wreckers and deploying airstrikes upon request for fun and profit.

Also, Bee Bonk's art is fantastic, as is their worldbuilding.

After a hiatus Hell is Empty is back! We are playing using the Demons: The Descent rules and setting but you do not need to know anything about either.

So far, we are Ms. Ink, a fallen angel of the biomechanical demiurge that controls all reality. We were sort of responsible for the Dust Bowl and chose to leave God and live as a mortal. Currently we are living under the cover of Mabin Pilliager, a young Ojibwe internet activist from Minneapolis and running around with a group of Demons devoted to carving out our own slice of Hell on Earth.

So far we have stopped an angel from being born, co-opted a chunk of godly Infrastructure, started the Demonic Socialist of America cult, and might be time traveling soon. Please come join us!

New summary for Other World CYOA:

We are a broken man who used fo drive truck in the other world. Gone insane from doing mr. cthulhu delivery task and now volunteered to represents him in the God-wide Pantheons of mass-aduction for recreational god-enchanced racing.

We gained Estoric Mind as part of the god blessing, this stack with our Insanity to turn our mind into a Lovecraft MC. Our snake-bro personality got removed to become a guardian spirit within us for advise and what not.

It seem our faction will be riding Lovecratian vehicle.

I've just started up my first CYOA, Alienation. Humans botched up first contact with an alien species, and now it's up to you to help negotiate an end to the war that followed. This is also my attempt at spreading awareness about Autism, specifically about how many with Autism have trouble reading facial emotions and the awkwardness and misunderstandings that can create.

If anyone is interested, I have decided to revive my thread from half a year ago. It's a short and relatively free-form game about trying everything you can to escape your old life and survive. How long can you last, on the run from the powerful forces that lurk beneath the surface of each country in the world? Will you be able to break free and build a new life for yourself or will your attempt be violently cut short? Either way, the game will conclude by the end of September.

Game:

System: Homebrew - roll 1d100 and add your roll to your allies in the horde. Roll high for glory in combat, roll low to be a garbage failure.
Format: PBP/CYOA
Players: Up to 100! The Horde begins one hundred strong, though mostly they're NPCs. As people join - any time in the game, mind you - the faceless mooks that have been there the whole time turn out to have been PCs! This also means if you die you can just take up another slot - and you probably WILL die.
Description: Alright maggots, get your rears in gear! The Horde needs your warm bodies to defend the sacred kingdom of Tö! Throw yourselves up against the savage Fröman hordes and save your country... or die in glorious battle! Individuals play as members of the Horde, and take actions in battle or in preparation that will influence the fate of the Horde itself. Players ALSO get to vote on the Horde's strategies in a weirdly non-digetic manner, regardless whether they currently have a character in the game or not. Any number of people can join, as many times as they want (though only one active character at a time), and post as much or as little as they want. If I feel like updating, I'll just roll for stragglers, so the game won't slow down due to player truancy.

Also, you look like this:

Vote scraper release 0.4.0
Windows 64-bit, OSX (experimental), documentation.

Changelog:
  • Encrypt all communications with SomethingAwful
  • Support authentication with SomethingAwful via user's credentials, so you can scrape while the paywall's up
  • Improve HTTP connection reuse
Comments and suggestions are always welcome. If anyone's interested in the source code (it's Haskell), get ahold of me on IRC in #madgod

Notes on authentication:
The scraper performs a conventional log-in through SA's log-in page when you click "OK" on the log-in dialog. On success, it stores the authentication cookies and uses them for all future scrape attempts in that session. The cookies are never written to disk or transmitted elsewhere (and your actual credentials are not stored at all after the dialog closes, even in memory), so if you restart the program they'll be lost and you'll need to log in again.

Is this the vote counter of choice nowadays?

Game: All Ways Be Cultivating - Choose Your Own Adventure
System: CYOA - Read & Vote

Players: All the players. Even if you don't want to vote, I hope you'll enjoy reading
Description: Become a supernaturally powerful martial artist and punch your way into paradise. Face giants armed only with your own fists (and boatloads of fist magic). Honestly though, it'll probably be mostly training montages and discussions about how cool it is when your numbers go up.

It's been a little over a year since the last time I ran one of these. Hopefully I remember how.

I'm trying to write semi-seriously, but the tone isn't necessarily serious at all. I have a ton of crazy ideas that hopefully this adventure will allow me to set free. I've never hosted a game thread before, so I'm excited to see what kind of fun I can have with choices/situations that I don't have to write myself out of: you do!

Come play my CYOA!

Save your reality from the Constructors... then save all the rest of them.


So there was a thread in GBS that introduced an image breeder app, that makes all sorts of messed-up images.

Well, this inspired me. In an effort to keep the thread alive, I turned it into a CYOA. It's been running for a couple of months now with a small, devoted group of players.

The game takes place in a reality which is slowly being stolen by the Constructors, a powerful and alien race from another reality. Your character begins knowing nothing about himself; through his adventures and the people he meets he discovers who he is and the role he plays in the world. All the graphic elements (people, places, things) are designed in the image breeder app, making for some very unusual stuff.

The gameplay style is casual; either vote for one of the choice options, or make a suggestion of your own. So far, new entries have been daily.

If you want to check it out, make a suggestion, or just watch what's going on, you can find the thread here. The adventure proper begins on Page 5.
