nothing cute about morally questionable precursors that are all either uploaded consciousnesses or so cybernetically enhanced that they don't look like living things
i'm in the middle of the missions, which is the last section, but it's still very slow work because it's where a good half of the writing is located
after this i also intend to rewrite all of the contacts/acquaintances so that they all fit uniformly into their allotted space - and then i have to create an additional page or two/three to include the unfallen, their heroes, their quests, the fighter/bombers added post-release, and the few random heroes that got added after release like the photobomber.

have fat laughing fish, the best hero, as a gift for waiting so patiently. sadly, i lost the webm, so you'll have to make do with a still image of him.

@Playboyize
Start small. 1 or 2 pages can make a compelling CYOA, and you can probably get a few good sections of content out of that.
When writing companions, specific objects, or places, it helps to start from the picture. Find art that's close to what you want the feel to be, then make your writing match the image.

You don't know until you try. You're not going to suddenly make a good, large CYOA by spamming a bunch of choose-one trash. The skillsets are different. It takes actually trying to make something big, and your failures there will teach you how to do it better.

@BlogWobbles
As a fairly recent author, @Stark_Naked
has an OK gist. I'd say 4 or 5 pages is still fine, though? Of course, you're not wrong, you're not going to go from Magic Pills to PPP+. But a solid 3-4 page CYOA does exercise the skills you need to make a longer good CYOA like Royal Revival or Space Opera Battle Waifu.

Pastebin has a list of sites for finding images. There is also a stand alone java program listed in there that will do a basic layout / design for you. Just plug in images and text from what I've seen.

Evilember

@BlogWobbles
@TechHater
Not everyone is comfortable with making something big to start with, not everyone wants to limit themselves by starting small. Besides, what matters most is the idea, and how much material you can create with that idea. A boring CYOA won't have readers after the first paragraph no matter how many pages there are.

@Playboyize
Disable anti-aliasing, turn on hinting, use a font with a good kerning and when using outlines ensure that the contrast between the background isn't too jarring or you risk making the text difficult to read.

Fading two thematic images on the top and bottom layered above something similarly colored is a 2 minute process that can make a decent looking aesthetic.

Try to stick to short and flavorful descriptions.

@Playboyize
Don't use supersaturated colors or colors that clash so bad they hurt the eyes to look at, like bright blue on bright red.

Keep your font size legible for everyone. Many anons have bad eyesight and if it's not readable then you lose out on potential audience. Also don't use a fancy font for anything but a header/title. The shape of the letters should be easily distinguishable for body text....this doesn't mean you have to use Arial but there's also nothing wrong with that.

Don't stretch/smoosh images. Crop them to your image frames. SDA has some tutorials that you can find on his drive or in the mega collection on "how to" if you're using photoshop. Otherwise perhaps start with that java program CYOA Studio that'll do the heavy lifting for you for layout.

Pick a subject you find interesting/FUN. If you don't enjoy what you're making it'll turn out to be crap.

Also KISS. Keep It Simple Simon. Don't go overboard on some complex point system and multiple stats.

@Playboyize
Label your cyoa with some sort of moniker/handle so people can ask you questions directly or they'll name you themselves. Just because you put a name in a cyoa doesn't mean you have to name fag and it seems that's usually not preferred anyway, unless you're an attention whore.

Put version numbers on your cyoa so people know what the newest version is. Putting it in the file name is good but people change file names all the time.

Just thought of a good one. Make sure to name your CYOA, preferably uniquely. Especially if you don't include some alias as an author somewhere on there.

It's annoying to remember which unamed unauthored CYOA is which just by the tags and forces us to write archiving scripts/programs with the idea that the names might not be reliably unique.

So I took some feedback from last thread about the map, updated the Not!Korea region. Look better now?

Also to all the people who posted nations, what if instead of them being nations, your suggestions were of vassal provinces of the nation that one could have as stewards of an area? So the Bakun Isles suggestion would be stewards of the islands and servants of you, the player.

Would having a choice between two narrators be inadvisable? The cyoa itself will stay pretty much the same, only with different flavour text and a single option having similar but different results based on which narrator you choose.

TurtleCat

@askme
There was a cyoa that did that semi recently. You chose different paths and each path has its own set of adventures/stuff/companions inside the whole cyoa storyline. Like you chose natives or city and each path was similar but from the viewpoints of what/who you chose to help/become part of.

WebTool

@askme
Seems like a waste of a gimmick to me. Now, if each narrator had exclusive options that were on their side of the screen...
It does feel like you'd need to limit your writing to make it fit within the format. Like, you have a paragraph with 100 letters centered, with the gimmick you would have 2 paragraphs in the sides of the page, each having max 75 characters,

Return the joie d' vivre that was lost with the proliferation of cheap porn. The joy of recreating the most fucked up abstract scenarios but with the power of modern software and bloated Hollywood budgets

Mostly safe choices that affect the world minimally to grant more boons.

Living Nightmare, Inspection Job
Can always satisfy my lust outside of the job.

Timeless Fashion
You know the tight business skirts that flatter "the figure"? I suppose it's a combination of sexual appeal with traditional gender roles.
Expanded Use Case, Breathe My Subs!, Equal Opportunity, Fuck Physics
Comes naturally with the extended sexual mores in this brave new world. Also, >No Shit Sherlock And Deny the World the Masterwork of Yakin Byoutou?! I think not. I'm not into scat, but it takes all strokes to jack off the world. Sorry ladies.
Bigger is Better, Collateral Damage, Faith Made of Ass
Not a set percentage, variety is the spice of life after all. But, combined with ass tax, we could practically enter a post-scarcity utopia overnight. I wonder if the blacks would become the global hegemony thanks to extended badonkadonk power. As for Superpowers-Ass-Powers, that would only lock the countries of the world into a cold ass war, stockpiling Weapons of Ass Destruction to in a vain attempt to cheekmate their opponents. That is certainly not the aim of this CYOA. Let them flourish and wane and rebirth like a flower bed, not become grotesque tools of war which spit on the good faith of the Goddess.
I'm not particularly into big asses, that's why no waifu. It's an OK flavor but, personally, it's the attitude what matters. How willing they are to debase themselves in the pursuit of their own selfish pleasure. Which is why Facesitting is one of my fetishes.

@StrangeWizard
@Nojokur
I think "crew" should be redefined in a way that excludes the Ark population. Basically, you have your "crew", who are under your command and employ and do various tasks as you see fit, and then you have passengers, including the Ark citizens, mobile habitat population, and temporary passengers.

This way, even the Ark is able to take crew of various descriptions. The crew would make up a very small percentage of the population (maybe just a couple hundred individuals). If you were to take the Ark it would be a lot like being the captain of Babylon 5 or Deep Space 9. You are responsible for the population and have crew under your command to help.

Perk of Perkiness
Why is this not free?!
Thots into Thoughts, Fountain of Youth, Copy Boobility, Bigger on the Inside, Cowgirl on Call
Would definitely shift the power balance into the feminine side Unless manboobs count too.. From a strictly utilitarian, due to the advances in science alone this is the ideal scenario regardless of my male ego. I Store Mana in There! would be just too much thanks to radfem and their rag. Having our core assets/magic supersoliders/world leaders with ICBMs go on a rampage once per month would ensure our extinction, Fountain of Youth or not.
One True Wish
Rather than bust size being monopolized by plant syndicates or me, everyone -even the downtrodden- can wish for /their girl/ to grow up a couple of sizes and become their savior.
Havin' a Field Day
Again, to go with the relaxed sexual mores.

Just Sacks of Fat, The Boob Culture
Boobs are kind of demystified and recodified into symbols of power and prosperity rather than sexual appeal. Big Boobs now becomes an obscure aberrant fixation, along with the likes of Blackmail or Forced Prostitution.
Gainax World, Soft Cap(proportional to height and t h i c c ness, max amazoness capped at K-level)
Roguelike(every third day, each person has their own cycle), Mutagen Spill, Talk Shit Get Tit
Combined with Thots into Thoughts, it creates an interesting meta where women require their husbando or professional breast worshipers to praise their assets before they can power up to full and perform their role in society. Swearing only fills you up to 1/3. Praise from a single man could take you to 3/4 of your full level. Diminishing returns means that to achieve 300% capacity you'd need the full support of your community. Or abuse drugs.
Weird Multiboob Shit

It’s a matter of preference. I prefer builders since making me emotionally invested in a paragraph with an anime picture attached is kind of unlikely. It can happen if the writing is good, but it’s usually not. If you give me a checklist I can build a better waifu, because the two or three sentences you spent trying to make them relatable are probably not working.

It could be that I don’t really do “waifus”. Maybe it really is the writing. Maybe it’s because I’ve never had problems with real people. And perhaps it’s because I think trying to decide a long-term romantic partner based off of a half-assed description would be dumb from any other angle

Agreed partially. Oftentimes, to me, builders end up feeling "empty" but that's more likely because too many end up (IMO) 'wasting' time on unimportant things like how big her ass is.

I love the mutagen idea, that’s right up my alley. I’m hoping the soft cap plus tax will make anything past the cap even more appealing due rarity, thus making it more desirable. With the convenience of a magic bra and no regard for physics, I foresee a sort of size arms race, with every woman struggling to reach new sizes before the yearly reduction. And guess who has the power to simply wish for breasts to grow and the scientific acumen to take advantage of mutagens?

I'm also not going to hold a debt over Lysha. Not my style. That she sees through it, and seems to get what I've done doesn't matter. Things are technically even now.
Escape the Otherworld, Become a Spirit-Speaker
I'll become a Spirit-Speaker first, as I feel like that will be pretty crucial to my Escape. Once I find a way to go back and forth, I'm definitely coming back though. Yes, technically it does say I can pursue two... but at least in theory, there's nothing stopping me from coming back to this world and pursuing 'way of the gun', too, complete with manuals, and devoting the rest of my life to brokering peace by making the two sides equal in technology.

Would you waifu a T-1000 in female form, user? Obviously it's just Skynet's latest plot to destroy humanity through declining birthrates, but the program modifications necessary to forge an emotional bond just might allow you to turn the tables.

I'd be pretty restless, myself, so learning on the road would be fun.
Fog, Rock Swarm, Gaian Attunement.
Confuse enemies, hiding myself to protect myself; they'll likely never see rocky death coming at them. Also a good escape tactic, and a great way to ground (Har har) flying enemies. Also, having three lives is pretty damn handy.
Shifting Eyes
I like the ability to see through illusions, and better in general.
Binding Chains, Meteoric Speed, Celestial Wings.
Some times I need to just stop people instead of, you know, pummeling them to death with rocks. Also, being able to fly, or move with an alarming degree of alacrity, can be really handy.
Familiar.
My Familiar is basically going to be the Cheshire Cat.
Minors: Call Fire, Decipher, Heal, Repair, Arcane Seed (Adventurer Specialty).
The Arcane Seed is nice; fast regeneration and increased magical prowess (though no extra lives, I still like having three lives). Call Fire is just a simple enough utilitarian spell; same with Decipher and Repair. Being able to Heal people, including myself (in case I am badly wounded and my naturally increased regen isn't cutting it) just makes me handy to have around; mostly for the disease curing.

I'm ready for adventure.

I plan on adding more info on "curses" on the next update, under the "Aberrations" section. Thing is, I'm still looking for a decent image for the creature/event I'm going to use to do that.
Currently, curses are pretty limited. On the one hand, the "A calling" past is a result of a curse. All those born in The Protectorate must return unless they pass it's calling onto someone else.
The "A Curse" past is this taken to the extreme. It's not the The Protectorate calling you anymore, it's The Protectorate making you think that you'll never be safe unless you go there. If you still insist in not going, you'll have a mental breakdown and eventually die.
What I'm trying to say is that curses can only be placed by The Protectorate itself. And the only way someone can put a curse upon someone else is if they transfer a curse they have onto another.

Pick 4 out of 12
Good ratio. Anywhere between 25% and 33%, In my opinion, is optimal.

Lots of characters
They seemed unique, and you've clearly invested effort in them.

What this cyoa is lacking is some kind of payoff. Maybe a branching set of choices that your party needs to meet stat minimums to progress through? If the player's role is to guide these heroes, something to guide them through would make this CYOA more interesting as a standalone. As it is, it's more of a writing prompt, which is fine, but not too exciting.

It's hand waved away, but it still exists. Hard to really erase the inevitable consequences from the mind of a reader. That's why a ton of western readers are order fanboys or otherwise oppose the setting.

By handwaved I actually mean the consequences are negated by some vague magic effect.
They even have swords and teeth that "do not pierce the flesh but instead inject the soul with deep lust and pleasure", paraphrasing here.

The western audience has order fanboys because they prefer the headcanon where the world makes sense.

Once the demon lord gains enough power monsters will be able to birth human sons and most humans fall in genuine romantic love with their rapists, in most cases the rape being downplayed to just being really really forward.

You seem to be very bothered by the desecration of the dead. I'm not saying you're wrong to be, just that it's very obvious this is what bothers you most about the setting.

I'm also surprised that you're not more upset that YOU can become a monster girl via having your corpse dug up, because Skeletons can be born from the skeletons of even males, and because all lesser undead (not things like liches etc) can evolve through other forms until they reach the levelof Wight, any random undead monster girl that's not a non-wight type of greater undead can be a former dude. Death is no escape even for men.

This CYOA is amazing!!!
I don't know why I love it, but I really, really love it!

Followed a pretty cliche story, having Leron as the protagonist and throwing in the Princess and the beastgirl because naturally a party.of heroes needs a varied background. Then of course Sulkal as the spellcaster. Every party needs one!

I was surprised there wasn't any really solid Tanks or Healers, even the Knight was depicted as using a lance, no semblance of a shield. Figured Leron and Aemee would have to hold the front lines while Sulkal and Nal'aru fought from the back, all of them having at least a bit of healing.

After messing around with everyone's stat modifying abilities, the results were:
Leron: Str 7 End 7 Mag 7 Res 7 Spd 7 Lck 7
Sulkal: Str 4 End 2 Mag 9 Res 7 Spd 5 Lck 8
Aemee: Str 7 End 5 Mag 7 Res 5 Spd 4 Lck 5
Nal'aru: Str 6 End 4 Mag 3 Res 4 Spd 8 Lck 6
Tried to even out stats with Aemee and Nal'aru, and made Leron a GREAT all rounder, as any rpg protagonist should be. The number of IP I got felt like a great amount, ending up with 12, but it was gone waaay too fast.

I took Enigmatic Figure as my form, because ultimately I'd really like at least some recognition for my hard work. For boons I picked the Character Development and Breather Arcs because every good story needs them, and then spent my last point (having done associates first) on Luck Manipulation. Nothing is more annoying than grinding forever for one item, and nothing is more exciting than a sudden crit or dodge turning the tides of a battle.

For associates, Gizmo was a must, as was Rilengard. Always hate how the "Seemingly great guy fighting for the wrong side for some reason" almost always dies.
After I chose to save him, I realized I needed to save Isaya as well. Reikal came about as something that just felt right, story wise. Having someone else protect the kingdom and keep the main forces at bay on the final battle, quickly aided by Rilengard and those loyal to him.

This actually has some therapy-related purposes, funny enough. It's currently an open-ended question if recidivism rates among child molesters would go down if they were given a sufficiently lifelike child-doll. I don't think a study has been done, but if sex dolls are on the rise then I bet we could do one soon enough.

I like this one almost too much. It's a bit hard to build a traditional "balanced" team (Isero is the only real tank available and Aemee and Sulkal are the only mages that directly do anything, for example) but if anything I think that only makes it better. I've always wanted to see an oldschool-style RPG that broke away from the usual tank/mage/DPS/healer mold entirely.

Anyways, here's an overly-long autistic build, since I apparently don't know when to stop typing.
