Entity's escape plan never looked like a great idea to its accomplices. Rumors had it, the transdimensional prison it was locked in was designed to be a place of permanent exile for the worst of the galactic criminals. Even if the convict could succeed in their mad scheme of breaking through the time-space barriers, the prison architect argued, they'd still get flushed out in a desolate corner of the Milky Way galaxy, a cosmic wasteland that never produced any life forms worth mentioning. Entity didn't argue against the rumors. Its prison confinement was comfortable enough to spend aeons in quiet contemplation. Yet, Entity had what its other fellow convicts didn't: readiness to risk it all for its endless ambition of return. Now, the daring escape is far behind. Several of its accomplices didn't make it, but Entity itself is free... Yes, weakened, tortured, but free. Yet, its new form is limiting, and the only way Entity will be able to make it back home, to the Planegate, is with somebody else's help. Now, if only this darn exoplanet it landed on had some space-faring civilization worth mentioning... Oh well, Entity has time, and Earth is still young. Perhaps, these hairless apes swarming its surface could be of some use for it, after all. === Welcome to this thread! What is it? CYOA stands for Choose Your Own Adventure. It's a story, in which each step is determined by you, the readers. Or, to be more honest, it's determined by your votes and an honest roll of dice. What's unique about it? You don't play a single character. Instead, you're in charge of Entity, an intergalactic being that found itself in a precarious position: locked in a piece of living metal and completely stranded on our God-forsaken planet. The caveat? Entity can be turned into artifacts, and these artifacts could grant abilities to their wielders. Entity's goal is to guide human civilization with the hands of the "great people," who just happen to be the vessels of its power. With your help, we'll try to progress from the Copper Age all the way into space.
