How do you handle walls of text in cyoas?

My current project has a massive lore dump on the first page, and I'm worried it might scare some anons off.

>> No.54721699

>>54721541
Advice that I'd give to you, not just as a cyoa author, but generally as a writer; Avoid lore dumps at all, if possible.

The rule of "show don't tell" doesn't apply to anything written for obvious reasons, but the general concept is still important. Try to weave lore into the general body. If there's a situation where you think the readers need to know something, ask yourself these questions:

1: Do the reader REALLY need to know? Are they missing important context, or is it just "pointless" fluff?

2: Can you work an explanation into it?

Ex. Your reader doesn't understand that guns shoot bullets, so rather than an aside where you explain guns need bullets, you write "guns are powerful, but are limited by their ammunition, bullets."

Perhaps not the best example, but you get the point.

3. Can you work it into something else?

As in the above, but in another option.

Ex. "Whilst a big stick won't deal as much damage as a gun, it can operate independently of bullets, which guns cannot."

4. Can you work it into something irrelevant?

Ex. "Dave was mistrustful of guns, due to their reliance of bullets."

This works particularly well as it can help add flavour to other choices/elements. If done well, at least.

Hope this helped

I'm the last person who should be giving advice on text walls, but see if you can boil your lore down a bit, then figure out how to convey them in the actual options. Hopefully, your world and your options are related, so when you explain an option mechanically you can also drip feed lore through that explanation.

The plan is simple. Use my gold and business to colonize the lands Beyond the Wall. It's not like the wildlings are properly using it (they don't even know how to use a freaking windmill, for petes sakes). In no time what was previously a barbaric wasteland will turn into my own little merchant republic. Depending on when in the Game of Thrones timeline this CYOA happens I could either do this now (if it happens years before any of the current troubles exist) or I could do it after the White Walkers are beaten back. Just in case the White Walkers still cause trouble I have my Dragonglass weapon and the daggers to hopefully do some damage and provide some defense. My companion, Vaballatha, is a rich man, and his insistence on paying my expenses will save me money in the long run.

I mean, we know that the Frostfangs must have at least copper and tin deposits, since the Thenn have made a small kingdom which uses bronze weapons. Combine that with the timber from the whole region and the furs from the wildlife, and if you're not opposed to slavery you might as well just take the people too like with what happened to Hardhome. Sure, it won't be a great agricultural region with the cold weather, but you can still make a good amount of money from it.

>Year 1- Ranged Combat, Maneuvers
Time to give a little kid access to firearms. This is also where I first come to meet the colorful characters of Edge Hard Academy, including the token bard, the awkward centaur, and some emo chicks. Well, I can certainly dig being part of the black-and-grey crowd. While I attend the events, I am still fresh meat and therefore do not do anything special.

>Year 2- Ranged Combat, Divine Arts; Great Hunt, Battle of the Arts
Doubling down on the gun kata, specializing in the twin-barreled military rifle. The weapon is almost as tall as I am at this point, so I think we’re doing well. Last year I noticed that Silene tends to take a lot of damage when she fights, so I begin to study holy stuff to help her. After all, the tribe back home is really into worship anyway. I’ve also gained enough confidence to try my hand at competitive poetry and beast-slaying, a great part of that courage coming from the fact that I can stand far in the back while the melee guys tangle with the monsters.

>Year 3- Ranged Combat, Unholy Arts; Battle Royal, Battle of the Arts
Now the coldsteel begins in earnest. I’m beginning to feel a little more hostile towards non-Ej Har kids, and that in turn influences my decision to take up the unholy arts. Lucky for me, the tribe already worships a dark god alongside the light one. That shit’s sure to go well with all those Lunestier snobs and Legem Dei prudes at the battle royal. This is also the year I start studying illusion magic on the side because I think it will give me a “secret weapon” or something like that. On the relationships front, I duel against a pretty chill swordsman from Uzuza and begin to feel the first repellant stirrings of a teen crush on Miss No-winged Angel.

Farhat says no poetry this year– some punks want to shit up the winter festival. I guess I’ll put a bullet in someone’s head if Inas doesn’t get to them first. She’s amazing.

>Year 5- Divine Arts, Unholy Arts; Battle Royal, Battle of the Arts, Party Planner
Decided to dedicate myself to serving the god brothers. Bet you didn’t see that one coming, mom. Time to finally do better than tie against Izuki. I’ll get around those swords, I know I can. I guess it’s also time to start thinking about the future, too. What am I going to do when I get out of here? Should I get all my friends together and begin a career in murderhoboing? No, we’re not really built for that– and besides, I don’t want to look like some tryhard from St. Flares. I don’t know who’s going to take care of Cassie, either. Does she have anyone else outside of this school? Whatever, I’ll think about this later. Gotta plan for that stupid party.

I can imagine a hidden society that plays games of online poker in which they bet everything they possess: from their money to their youth to their future children. The most succesful players quickly acquire wealth and power beyond measure. The worst players dissapear into nothingness as they lose their very souls, a state known as "0/No HP".

From there, the game is still basically Poker, which I can't really make a CYOA out of, but I can totally make one out of finding an online poker game, with one's life essence as the chips being played, and maybe the ability to choose who you're playing with and what you're aiming for.

It still feels really flipping dull though. I'd reroll the poker thing if I wasn't worried about getting something even more boring. Although at least it isn't a mmo where "if you die in the game, you die in REAL LIFE!"

Anyone know the answer to a few Daemonology questions?

If you have higher innate power, does Innate Body function as a higher vessel? Like is it a Tier 5 vessel for Bloodline with all the assorted costs?

When Third Eye mentions being able to use a demon's knowledge score, does it intend to say only AFTER you have created the Third Eye, not to create it?

Why does an Artefact cost as much knowledge as a Third Eye or Halo despite being objectively inferior? Third Eye is also objectively inferior to Halo, but I guess he wanted Celestials to be better than everything.

Is there really no way to bind demons to increase your power other than Jars?


Basically I'm trying to figure out how to bind Wiseard as a Bloodline, and as far as I the only way to do it would be to put Ragnin in a Familiar, put two Tier 3 trolls in Jars, then finally put Wiseard himself in a Third Eye. All that collectively costs you 82 points, which is doable with the DLC but I feel like there should really be a more direct way of doing it.

Artefact works really well as the Troll specific god-mode.

Sucks, you basically end up with two useless demons and a Ragnin that can't even forge shit for you.

Also I REALLY don't see any purpose for Bloodline. Occultist has to spend 91 points to bind Wiseard , but they actually end up with 9 points left-over pre-DLC because of their starting points. So you get more points, then the option to use your stars to purchase from another demon family, which is probably going to be a MASSIVE boon even outside of the scope of the CYOA (you effectively double your long-term flexibility and potential.)

In fact, can anyone here think of any reason to EVER choose Bloodline in this CYOA?

>Elixirs
Even if Oriadne can allow me to take all the elixirs, that wouldn't be fun. So, I only chose six (also, I can think of more interesting ways to spend the time with Oriadne).
B02-Grace - because a target hard to hit makes the opponent lose their temper
B03-Vitality - so that damage hardly matters
M05-Skill - i don't need to know everything from the start, just master the skills that I really will use
M08-Analysis - as to not be outsmarted by anyone and make the best plans
S09-Magic - because magic should always be on mi side
S10-Guardian - an additional member for my team (and I don't really know how good is Oriadne at combat so we need take precautions)

Though there are 13 opponents in total, most of the time will be 3 vs 1 so I don't think things can become difficult at any time. One of many possible tactics is cause some of the brides to fight each other (those who can use area attacks are perfect to weaken groups, like the automatons of Sephy or the beasts of Talisa). Some of the brides don't even have seem interested in -or capable of- a fight, so I go first to talk to them. Conveniently they also seem reasonable enough to agree with the harem route, which is my final goal anyway.

Finally, when I get all the powers of the king (those that make gods cower) I'll use it to get one of my favorite abilities: create copies of myself linked like a hive mind; so each bride has her husband 24/7.

I'd imagine bloodline is what the world's elite would have. Innate demonic power, superhuman stats, etc. Even without messing with demons you're already a literal ubermensch. It's obviously been balanced for cyoa purposes too. There's no logical reason why a family of demonologists so well-versed in it would hold 0 occult power.

>Extra Life
>Save Point

Use one save slot immediately. The other will be used fairly constantly for dicking around, like winning the lottery or making a killing on the stock market by redoing weeks. When I'm quite old, or my extra life expended with no real ability to reclaim it with the "near" save point, use the "Start" savepoint to warp back with my knowledge of what is to come, and (ab)use this knowledge to prevent any global catastrophes and advance human technology. If I make sure to understand as much of the inner workings of important breakthroughs as possible I can be an inventor (or a shadowy mentor to inventors) in later loops, advancing technology quicker and ensuring that I reach more new stuff. Eventually, I should get to a point where immortality or at least truly massive life extension tech hits while I'm still more than able to enjoy it and have my Extra Life. At that point, I make the second save after my personal upgrade and hold both saves. Once I'm sure it's worked and I'll have enough lifespan after that point to continue to push my survival and humanity's progress forward I can overwrite the start save, accepting the timeline up to where we beat the reaper, and use the "Day after upgrade" save as my new start and the other slot for day-to-day mischief while I play for the next great leap in human evolution. Right now, I believe that compressing the timeline of technological advancement via time loop could eventually solve any problem, allowing me to eventually move forward step by step and experience truly new days.
