Hello to all who may read this. This is my first story and in all honesty it’s not very far along at this point. It’s also probably not very good either. In fact I don’t even have a demo yet (though that is me trying to figure out how to get choice script to work more so than the actual content of the story.) In my own opinion this is probably quite premature as I had planned to have the intro done by this time, However I felt it would be best to test the waters as it were and make sure that I wouldn’t be lynched on the spot.
The story itself is itself is rather simple as it follows you on our quest to kill the gods. Why you’re killing the gods shall be hidden for the moment since spoilers and all, but I feel it is suitably justified and when it comes about I hope you feel the same.This happy tale is taking place in a high fantasy world of my own creation, which makes use of ideas that are common to such settings as well as some that are entirely unique to me and my friend who helped me create some of the ideas for creatures and such.
You begin your tale with an intro which covers you as you are about to do battle with the King of the gods, during which time you will be asked certain questions which will define your character, such as gender, name and other basic stats.
After that happens you move onto the actual beginning of the tale during which you find out who you were prior to your god killing rampage, which was a farm boy/girl, meet your younger sibling who is currently named george until I come up with something better (feel free to leave suggestions if you want) and we begin to form the basis of your personality. If all goes according to plan this is going to be rather important as my hope is to include reactions beyond just favoritism based on how you act, such as comments on sudden changes or depending on what your personality is even continuing with certain reactions in situations in which they are uncalled for such as joking while attending a funeral. Hopefully this will add immersion to the story.
Anyway after you are done with this step you should move onto the first real quarter of the game, during which you build up your character, and become a servant of the gods. While you will have learned a small amount of the world in the intro this is where you are going to learn about most of it such as the countries and species that inhabit it. These include Orcs, Goblins, Elves, Dragons, and this one weird group of sentient snakes which will probably be more important later. That or dead, depending on what you decide.
The second quarter deals with your motivations for killing the gods, the first god you kill, becoming a god, and gathering followers and power as you go. The second half is where you begin killing off all the other gods and begin to see just how far you are really willing to go in order to win.
Now though I have to warn two things. One is that this story isn’t going to always be pleasant to say the least. I have every intention to cover unhappy subjects such as torture, fantasy racism, slavery, Disease, the death of children and innocents, Demons (not the nice ones) cannibalism and any other twisted thing that I feel fits into the story. In fact every last thing in that list has a part in the story in my head, and while you may not deal with all of them in a single play through you will deal with some of them, whether by preforming them yourself or witnessing them happen. You can stop some, but you can also fail to do so. While this is not the entirety of the story it is a major part of it and the main reason I’m putting this topic earlier then originally intended. While I will not be overly graphic during such moments this story is not intended for children nor those who want a entirely happy story. There are many other wonderful stories on this site that aren’t as dark as what I intend to write such as community college hero by Hornheadfan. You have been warned and while I may be willing to restrain certain aspects if it is highly requested I will not remove them and if that is the only option I would rather remove my story altogether.
Secondly I must warn that I am not even a novice writer. Reading this in the beginning will most likely be a grueling prospect filled with bad dialog, grammar and many spelling errors. Even when we finally finish with that the story may not even be inherently entertaining. My experience with writing up to this point has been : Essays and letters, quite a bit of reading, of many different subjects, and helping a friend build a world for a book he was writing, and a few badly written short stories for friends and family. I will try my best and I expect to improve though it shall be an … interesting journey for all of us.
Finally I will include a very small teaser of my intro, until I can figure out how to get that darn choice script to do as I command. Feel free to ask questions, give suggestions or call me a Plebeian or whatever.
You stand in a hall filled with magnificent carvings in the shape of men and women, both beautiful and horrifying at the same time. Each bust is formed of precious metals and stone carved in such a perfect likeness that they seem if they would turn and speak at any moment. You stand in a hall filled with such treasure that even the wealthiest of kings, the most powerful men and women in the world, would swell with envy at the sight. Gems the size of men, Rivers of molten gold at the sides and mountains of rings made of silver. You stand in a hall Lined with the grandest armours, the sharpest blades and the strongest bows, ready to be taken up in their master’s defence. You stand in the Hall of the Gods. The place most mortals would weep in joy and fear to see even a glimpse of, let alone stand inside. You stand in their Tomb.
