Using these I should be able to change stories for the better. Stop Anakin from saving Palpatine, save Harry Dresden from Malvora, so Lash doesn't have to die, etc. Maybe I'm destroying stories that were supposed to happen, but the Time Thief would probably be into that. And If I can't make portals to preexisting fictional worlds I know of, I'll try and do the same thing anyway, just with situations that are less familiar. Hopefully with good timing I can be a force for good in the multiverse.

>> No.77034860

After an entire lifetime of lurking, I've decided to finally try my hand at making OC and I want to run the idea by some people to make sure it's not terrible. I like character driven narratives, so I've written out a list of characters and each of them has some quest they need help with. The first page will be a narrative where they're all introduced, and then you can choose which one you want to accompany on their adventure, and depending on the choices you make in your adventure your relationship develops and you can get one of several endings. I've got 8 companions written so far. Is that enough or should I make some more? Also is the basic premise retarded or ok?

>> No.77034912

sounds fine, and eight companions is enough.

>> No.77034939

Seems interesting. Could you flesh it out though?

>> No.77035018

Have you seen Beyond the Doors? Seems like a somewhat similar premise, so it could probably work.

>> No.77035132

So the current setting is you get isekai'd to a low fantasy world and you get a choice of three different abilities to bring with you which will effect the choices you can make later. A wizard guy is studying the anomaly that brought you there, so he tells you about the world and stuff, offers to let you travel with him on his big quest that he leaves for tomorrow, and says until then you should walk through town and see the sights or something. I'm writing it out so as you walk through town you meet several different people under different circumstances, like a grumpy old guy that saves you from a tourist trap, or a little kid who got separated from their parents to name a couple. Somehow or another, all of them lead to offering you a quest and at the end you choose which one you want to travel with. So far, I've basically just written a bunch of characters and now I'm writing the setting and figuring out how to introduce and develop them.

I want to also somehow include a few choices that the player can make to be their goal in the world so you aren't just a tag-along. I also plan to make all the character's stories to intertwine in some way so that if you pick one companion the others didn't just disappear.

>> No.77035139

Basic premise is similar to Eternal Rising/Adventure/Arms, Knightbros, and Gloria. It sounds intriguing enough.
Please don't do what Morton Fork did and at least give us some measure of capability, or make the world survivable for the average anon. Otherwise helping in the quests would be too wishy-washy.

>> No.77035179

Yeah, I plan to give the player a choice between three abilities which will provide some survivability. One is a kind of martial art mastery and physical upgrade, one is a magic learning jumpstart, and one is a standard kit from a modern day Earth soldier which would put you at the top of the food chain in this low fantasy world as long as you had ammo.

Harvesting build. Using my initial budget of 100 IP, I'm going to create a Computing tech tree for hacking devices or bitcoin miners to get money anonymously and a Ballistics tech tree to create advanced, untraceable weaponry capable of killing targets very, very far away. Once I've raised enough funds I'm going to a third world country to massacre people.

When I reach a total of 1000 IP, I will create Biology, Time/Space Manipulation, Chemistry, Electronics, Robotics, and Ex Nihilo Generation tech trees. Using them I will create isolated, self-sufficient, time-bubbled harvesting facilities where cloned human fetuses are rapidly grown into infancy and cared for by caretaker bots. They will then form relationships with other humans in their facilities, create and fill out jobs and castes, form a primitive society, etc. until they reach the point where they have the same metaphysical value as the average human being. Then, the time bubbles are turned off and I flood the place with neurotoxin, harvesting them all for IP. I use the IP to further refine the technology so the next iteration is shorter, more cost-efficient, can support more humans, etc. and then repeat the process. With this fast, sustainable, reliable, and substantial source of IP there is almost nothing I can't do.

>there's always bigger fish
But is that really true? I mean, maybe if there were an unlimited number of fish, but fish are finite, right? They are limited in number. Therefore, somewhere out there, is the BIGGEST fish, a fish so big that there is no fish bigger than it. To it, the saying of "there are always bigger fish" does not apply, for it is the biggest fish there is. Therefore, I believe we should stop using this saying, as I have just logically proven here that it's not true.

>> No.77035462

I'm am bigger than the big fish

That's a great idea, actually. I'll save that for when I don't have anything else to work on.

>> No.77035478

But are you a fish?

>> No.77035516

Fishes, like all material organisms, are actually 4d structures that we experience as moving forward through time. By looking at fish in this manner, we can actually see that all fish exist simultaneously, past, present, and future, to a particular viewpoint.
But since the future isn't defined, those future fish exist in a flux state of infinite possibility. As a result, they could always be bigger than any current, or even future fish, thanks to unpredictability.

That's why there is always a bigger fish - quantum mechanics.

20% followed by 10% in a multiplicative manner would be (assuming baseline 100%) 100 * (1.2 + (0.2 * 0.1)) = 122, right? 1.2 because we require an increase of 20% to our baseline, then 0.x from then on because we need to use proper percentage values to multiply our percentage by.

Because multiplicative percentages only apply the full percentage on the first instance, then multiply the percentages by one another before adding the result for the next instances, which is where it gets the multiplicative moniker from. Right? Am I wrong here?

I swear the maths for multiplicative percentages is something like:

20% + 30% + 10% =
0.2 + (0.2 * 0.3) + (0.2 * 0.3 * 0.1) =
so doing them greater > lesser is better because 30% + 20% + 10% would be 36.6% instead of the above. This means all upgrades in a path would almost be required to start off Major then work their way towards Very Minor to be worth the point expenditure.

Been a fair few years since I've been to school, secondary or otherwise, so please do correct me if I'm wrong.

Upgrade nodes cost 1 + 1 per parent node that's not an upgrade. I'm not sure why each instance above C is I, but whatever. Shouldn't I cost 9?
I1 costs 1 base and is 1 step away. I1 costs 2.
I2 costs 1 base (still only 1 non-upg between it and Core) and is 2 steps away. I2 costs 3.
I3 costs 1 base (as above) and is 3 steps away. I3 costs 4.
2+3+4 is 9, yet the cost in your notes is 10. What am I missing?

C has a capacity of 4 yet only has 16 versions. What is the scaling? If 1:1, 4:16, and 10:100, what is n:n? Your numbering system doesn't make sense to me, so I must be missing something.

Do Theory nodes cost n+(n-1)(min 1) where n is the depth it is positioned at? So if it's 2 depth it still costs 1 because "plus one for every parent node PAST the first"?

You are the Forge specifies I can generate 2USDn where n is IP invested in the Core node. Does that come with a magical storage ability? If my Core is powered by Bad Intentions, do I just have to store them and become more corrupt, or do I have a magic piggy bank that screams louder every time I make a deposit?

Inertialess specifies it costs n TP where n is tree depth. Does that include the Core? Does it also count all branches? So if I have a tree of 3 branches with 3 nodes each, would it cost me 3 or 12 (+1 depending on previous answer)?

I wanted to make an actual build, but ended up coming away with a longer lunch consisting only of questions.

InfinityBladeAnon here, I have a question (related to my CYOA, we'll get to that in a bit) I'd like a genuine answer to: Why do the so-called 'readlets' exist? I mean, if you're unwilling to read, why are you here? Do you insist on having pictures in the books you read lest you are unable to imagine what the narrator is talking about? I really, truly don't understand it...

So here's the context: I'm steadily working on my CYOA, but the lack of art (even art not directly related to IB, there isn't much that fits IB's style)/decent screenshots is a persisting problem, certainly not enough to illustrate all my choices. So I was wondering if I should, where necessary/not circumventable, simply have no images.

Would that be okay, some choices having images and others not? Or are there alternatives?

>> No.77046097

>Would that be okay, some choices having images and others not?
Not a readlet but if you're gonna have images for choices then they all should have an image. Only a few having images is weird and ununiform.

>> No.77046114

What is your favorite CYOA?

>> No.77046119

In my opinion, some choices having no images sounds like a major detriment to the CYOA, even worse than mixing 10 radically different artstyles. Might be better to have no images at all than to fall short halfway there.

>> No.77046142

>Why do the so-called 'readlets' exist?
I'm reading 3 books at the moment, one of them i read for about 50 pages a day, that is outside school required reading. While I do enjoy some more lore heavy pieces like the ones by italics making ages upon pages one needs to read before he can even make any choices kind of defeats the pint of a cyoa in my opinon. If I wanted to immerse myself in a world with every detail explained to me and with it history flesh out on several pages I would go back to my book.
The more you write, the more you explain, the less freedom of imagination you give the player and , personally, Cyoa's are more of a imagination exercise than an exercise of immersion.

There's a continuum since by taking the argument to one extreme providing the least fleshed out choices possible gives the most "freedom" to the extent of handing the reader a blank page. On the other a hyper-writefag could present a whole novel with a single minor character erased leaving the reader only one restrictive and predetermined way to slot into the story. UltimatelyI think it comes down to how outlandish the setting itself is with more generic backgrounds placing more emphasis on character customization because there's less of interest in the world and odder fare banking of fewer but more unorthodox build options.

>Why do the so-called 'readlets' exist?
Image lover here, I think it's nice to have images to every choice since it gives you a window into that world and you can do visual world building through the use of your images. You can make people understand exactly what kind of world it is, what level of technology is available and what architectural style you can expect from the world. You can do all that without writing it in text by just using images.

>I mean, if you're unwilling to read, why are you here?
Images are important to CYOAs because CYOAs (4Chan choice games, not the novels that goes by the same name) have traditionally been a graphical medium. The vast majority of CYOAs have images and only a small percent are text only CYOAs. The reason "readlets" are so vocal is because they expect CYOAs to have images and are disappointed by the lack of images in some CYOAs. I imagine CYOAs to be like manga, it's a visual art medium and when you pick up a lightnovel and think it's a manga you're going to be disappointed because you didn't get what you expected. The "readlets are too dumb to enjoy text only CYOAs" is a strawman.

Rest of the reply here, I also have to say if your main reason for not using images is because it's hard to find images and you're lazy. That I won't be playing your CYOA if you decide to not use images. Choosing to not use images should be a artistic choice, not a choice based on laziness. If you don't take your art seriously, I won't either. Finding good art is hard and takes effort. Which is why I have the highest of respect for CYOA authors like SDA, Bliss and Imaginos who always use 1 art style and are masters of visual story telling. They are a huge inspiration for me and they are the reason I keep pushing the limits of what I can do in MS Paint.

For me personally I rarely play or read text only CYOAs. Not because they are bad, but because I enjoy the visual aspect of CYOAs far too much. Like when I choose companions in a CYOA I take into account the companions skills and personality aswell as their appearance on the picture. This will make me have to balance 3 aspects, usefulness, personal compatibility and appearance. If I play a CYOA with no images and pic companions there is usually no description. Which makes the choice easier as I only have to 2 aspects to consider, usefulness and personal compatibility.

PictureHaar here, Nahh it's not a strength really. Choices should be hard and not easy. A CYOA that let's me pick choices easy is boring. I enjoy CYOAs that let's me weigh every choice and think hard about everything I do. Also appearances is very important because they affect how people see you and how they interact with you. To skip someone's appearance is doing them a huge disserviceer. For example, If the description describes a reclusive warrior woman who's very kind once you get to know her, but very hard to approach. Then her character will change depending on her looks. Like if she is pictured as a rugged warrior with a scar across her eye then you might think that she has lost a lot of adventurer friends and that she's carful not to get attached to people too much, because she's afraid to lose them and get hurt. Or if she is pictured as a young and pretty maiden knight with shining armor and a bejeweled sword then you might think that her introversion is perhaps due to her upbringing as the daughter in a long line of wealthy knights and that she was sheltered as a kid and because of that she's simply shy. Appearances matter and visual storytelling is important, pic not raealted

I don't think Plague Masks had filters on them exactly. Wasn't the idea that the plague was caused by miasma of evil smells, so good smells would drive that away? So they just filled the nose with herbs and flowers and shit. Not really an actual filter. Disease is something youve got to give people a free pass for though. It's literally invisible monsters fucking you over. That's essentially what people thought it was anyway in a lot of cases, it's just less interesting than demons and shit.

I've been reading the Stormlight books recently actually, because brandon sandersons gotten way better at writing since the last one I tried, and I really like how he did medicine in that world. It's basically medieval tech, but their medicine is much better than it should be because there are very visible spirits everywhere in that world. Spirits of rot naturally gather around bad wounds, so while they do not understand anything about germ theory or antiseptics, but they've figured out cleaning a wound, putting certain substances on there and using clean bandages that have been boiled in water all drive away the rot spirits.

Knighthood, Artificer Plate, Golem, Basic Ranged Weapon, Travelling Supplies, Wardog, Small Ship and still enough to buy an army.
GARD kills demigods. What more could you need? Lucfil, Hans Elfguy, Roland, Void Shard,

GARD solves most combat problems. If cleverness's needed that's for the rest of the party.
Roland's a scout so we can avoid trouble, get advantageous positions or outright ambush enemies as needed, have escape routes, and so forth.
Lucfil and Hans both buff the PC, possibly over the built-in default max of 3 for combat, so he's a supereme combatant himself.
Finally Void shard is counter-intelligence. He denies enemies awareness of our position, save maybe sensing a blank area or Roland.

Roland + Void Shard should mean we have an actionable intelligence advantage vs enemies
GARD + buffs should mean we can handle any physical threats.

Was looking but didn't see anyone for countering mental attacks, stealth subversion, traps, etc.
