“A desperate journey through an unforgiving post-apocalyptic desert to find a place no one's ever come back from and rescue your boss's ex-wife's brother. How can this possibly go wrong? Let me count the ways. 'From Dust Till Dawn' is a story of sandstorms, murderous cyborgs, inhospitable landscapes, mysterious technology, giant lizards, (ex-?)marital strife, and electro-spears. If it were a book, it'd be hard to put down.”
“This is a fun sci-fi story with a fascinating array of colorful characters (*literally* colorful in the case of Tchikaakarek) and an intriguing story. I recommend checking it out!”
“A wild ride through the misadventures of a group of screen writers trying to come up with a hit show. All they have is the name they drunk emailed the studio, “Game of Drones.” Now they have to come up with a show, face agressive CEOs, temperamental directors, kooky actors and hope nothing explodes, unless the script calls for it. This is a fun romp, lots of quirky challenges and wonderful characters.”
“This story is a riveting, fun, interesting read. I could barely keep my eyes off it after starting. The fairytale take on the famous reality show is brilliant, as well as clever.”
“Follow a crew of tough-as-nails space pirates in their poker games, bar fights, and less-than-legal adventures! The players strike the perfect tone of gruff camaraderie and grim humor in a galaxy ravaged by war. The hard-bitten writing style is full of hilarious inner monologue, smart bits of world-building, and poignant glimpses of humanity beneath the characters’ hardened exteriors. Some lines will follow you for days.”
“If you steal a PC game from a haunted house, you pretty much get what you deserve. Mindlock follows the misadventures of a group of teens who take a “souvenir” from a creepy house and load it up on an vintage computer. What follows is a combination of “Jumangi” meets “Tron,” with the group being sucked into the game itself. Narrator @Willoz has assembled a truly creative cast who is constantly falling victim to emotion-driven monsters. An enjoyable read!”
“A delightfully dark trip down to magical Shreveport, Louisiana. Where magic is real, but only if you’ve got Kick. This story is an excellent example of a well-executed novella format game. Gritty characters with conflicting motivations make for a compelling read. One that makes you want to reach through your screen and throttle them, in the very best way possible. Like that game of Fiasco you always tell your friends about, Dirty, Filthy, No-Good Magic Trash is a rollicking ride you’ll remember for some time.”
“Five familiars are sent on a quest to find their missing masters. What sets this story apart is the excellent characterization of all the familiars. Each is unique and the players have obviously researched their animal’s physiology and behavior. The narrator keeps the story moving briskly as the familiars encounter and overcome trials in creative and yet thoroughly plausible ways. It all adds up to a very enjoyable story thus far!”
“Had I known about this Storium ahead of time, I would have submitted a character in a heartbeat! Bedrolls & Basements is a simple story about a group of kids enjoying a weekend sleepover to play a tabletop RPG. It’s not so much about the game itself, but rather the vibrant kids that play it. Each character has aspects that make them enjoyable to read. Grab your dice and a can of Coke, shoot back to the 80’s, and enjoy this fun adventure.”
“A semi-experimental effort that converts location-based roleplaying to Storium with unusual success, Whitecrest Memorial reads at first like an off-kilter medical drama that basks in a stock photo-style aesthetic, but soon becomes a much more harrowing and horror-filled tale. The writers work well together, and the heavy plot has enough kitsch to keep it charming. The first of 4 planned stories in this style (called Ծʂ☧), be on the lookout for future installments.”
