Blog Update: Poker with Adrea

Hi Everyone,

 

It’s been a while since I’ve done an update entry and I wanted to give everyone just a heads up of the direction I’ll be taking the blog in the next few months.  Hard to believe 2020 is over halfway over!  This year’s been a bit of a blur where I’ve mostly been stuck in front of a laptop indoors all day. I hope you're all taking care of yourselves.  On with the Update!  

 

First, The Bad News:  I’m shelving the Labyrinth, Inc story for the foreseeable future.  I’ve struggled to find a way to turn it into a satisfying story.  Many good ideas were generated around it and I would like to implement them in future stories.  But I’ve been stuck in a cycle of coming up with an outcome to the story, then deciding it was horrible, and then analysis paralysis set in.  To avoid being stuck under a Massive Writer's Block again, I'm shelving the story until the muse finds me again.  I want to thank everyone who provided ideas for the story, I’m glad to have such an involved group of readers!    

 

Next, The Good News:  With the other story shelved, I’ll be putting my time back towards writing Adrea’s Stories.  She’s been sitting on the airship for far too long, and I’m very excited to get back to her story.  She is the flagship of the blog and one I think I’ve been sorely missing in my story-telling.  

 

Also, I still plan on completing the Riften Vigilante Story.  I’ll continue to update the story on the original entry until it’s done.  Should be finished within the next two weeks.  

 

As a thank you for listening to my long winded update, I’ve created a bit of a game for you with Adrea. 

You’ll need: 

- A random number generator (Google’s works great) with the lower limit of 1 and the upper limit of 20.  

 

Throughout the story I’ll ask you to Roll.  Use the randomly generated number and follow the instructions based on the number you rolled.  

Maybe something fun will happen if you can beat her!  

 

Hope you Enjoy:

What a clever and rather saucy idea! ☺️

I'll admit, I cheated. But it was mostly because I wanted to see everything that Adrea has to say/show 😉.  Plus my evening with her would most likely end up in shoe-shopping together and then getting drunk at that bar. 😅 Still, I love these little interactive stories and interviews that you make. They are very lighthearted and engaging.

 

Sad to hear that the Labyrinth is being put on hold but all of us at some point either get stuck in the story or are unsatisfied with the way it's going. Take all the time you need and write whatever you yourself enjoy, be it Adrea's Stories, Vigilante or something completely different. All of your tales are a complete blast to read! 🤗

Shoe Shopping with Adrea... That would be an interesting entry.  :joy:.  I see 40 screens of trying on shoes and then in the end not making a decision and drinking instead.  I do like experimenting with these interactive entries.  Makes the character seem more alive.

Labyrinth isn't gone, gone.  Might revisit it again at some point.  But it's not going to be in the foreseeable future.  Maybe a Halloween story or something.  I dunno.  Thank you for the compliment though 🙂

Well at least we now now why the feared 12 labors of the Marsoric weren't published yet ! Don't worry, as long as you're inspired for your other works, that's not an issue. 🙂

Malicia : « Adrea's very good at cards, uh.

 

                Also I don't get why I'd be only wearing white shorts, no. That's very unfair. :classic_sleep: »

I know!  Adrea beat me 4 times before I beat her!  The one pair of shorts is purely for mechanical reasons only.  Makes it easier to stack the spoilers :wacko:.  But I could see Malicia in Kitty Shorts!

So I randomly found this by searching for strip poker, and I have to admit the method you used is fairly novel. Pretty limited, but understandably a bit handicapped by not wanting to have a bunch of embedded images! I did eventually just ignore the rules to see what it was all like, since it really does lack a lot of replay value since there's not much variation, but still it was a pretty amusing concept!

It's difficult to do multiple branching story lines! Especially on just blog entry.  Half the photos either end up being boring or not seen at all.  But I'm glad you got some level of amusement out of it!  Thanks for reading!
