Well, my Horus one, was a self admitted piece of tripe, inspiration can be found in strange places.
Cirno Reisen Meiling and Marisa for starter i guess. Other character will be added later. I can imagine psycho stalker flowergirl Yuuka though.
Without futhur ado, please enjoy. =========================
"You, young man, rise and become a legend."
Someone, somewhere, a long time ago said that to you. Well, you sure did a good job of that, you think as you trudge dejectedly through the snow. Who are you? You don't know, or don't care to remember. You are a nobody, one of the faceless massess that populate the wide world of Gensokyo.
And you don't lke it one bit.
Well, once you were in the armed forces of the Houraisan Electric Power Company, but that was a past you wouldn't care to remember either. A hell of opression and exploitation and extortion.
And even then,you were still a nobody. A nameless expandable grunt, though some would say you were a little more skilled, a little sharper, a little stronger than most. Well, that "little" didn't get you anywhere, and so you "quit" after a violent discussion with your employers, regarding their moral standards.
Then, you opted for a life of adventure, being nothing more than a drifter, fltting from town to town, working for your meals and bed. Except that adventure doesn't really seem to come your way either. You most dangerous job so far has been wrestling with a goat.
Then, suddenly, in the midst of the pristine white fields of snow, onthe slopes of the mountain, you hear the mighty shriek of a wyvern . A wyvern is near, and by the sheer volume of it, it must be a big one.
"Ohh man....what a time for adventure to come knocking..." you mutter, drawing your rifle, ready to defend yourself if needed.
----------------------- Inventory: rifle (equivilant to M16 in temrs of capaility and rounds chambered) half clip. Sword: 2 foot gladius. Rusty. ----------------------------------------- What was your role in the armed forces? dishwasher; EZ guard duty; medium assault soldier; hard Special Attack Division; insane What do you do?  Investigate cautiously. Charge in and slay the wyvern like Saint George. Bury yourself in the snow. Coseal yourself. Cower
If you can't manage a good CYOA, then just don't keep trying again and again. Try to make something bad into something good, or go from horrible to tolerable or fucking awesome, sort of like Nine did in /border/.
I'm taking this one a bit slower this time. I am aware that I am not going to win any book prizes so if you have any input, please do say so.
You guys are probably older than I am, and probably have much more experience, so if you have any good adivse and such, I'll probably listen.
And, I appreciate that you are telling me politely and not booing me off the boards, but I'll be doing my best to turn this into something awesome, so if you want to help and suggest something, please do so.
