Add stats. Hmmm…medic sounds good. Oh mining! We like mining. Let’s see here…explorer? Exploring? Yes, exploring, much better than cartography, although less fancy. Maybe get fancy later.
Add choices for character development based off current profession in game. Lots of setting introduced by character’s profession. Questions on whether or not background should be so fleshed out or if more questions asked. Will contemplate later. This is a test, a test of the emergency broadcasting system.
Okay! Now…add extra scene to see what happens. Maniacal laugh, maniacal laugh.
Okay now time to test! La la la la, first scene, ChoiceScript rights and licensing agreement. Should I delete this? I don’t know. Seems like I should. Never seen it in any games. But they might beat me up. Will figure out later. Ooooo my story. Hallelujah! Oh wait…error. Error. ERRORERRORERRORERROR…crap. Why is line 27 causing issues with line 76? Nonsense they aren’t even related. Spaces and tabs…you piece of…

Play through first choices again. Good, good. Gooooood. Buh whahaha! Everything is coming to plan.
