You're Tom, 29, single, and a former full time wageslave. One day, while walking home late at night after a long overtime, a snow avalanche hits you, and you end up in another world. It's like some tribe from Africa, where you're a revered warrior, called J'Amal---but of course you have no idea how to fight. In a short amount of time, you travel back and forth, until you end up in a hospital the next day of the accident. You have no memories of these happenings, but weird events keep happening around you, and sometimes it feels like you're being haunted. You also lost your job, and having no real savings, you start job hunting before you run out of money, while trying to understand where those weird dreams are coming from...

Chapter 2

It's white. Everything is white. You take a few steps left, and right, but everything is the same. Uniform white everywhere. "What is this?" you start thinking when you notice a black dot in the distance.
You take a few steps toward the dot, until you realize it's a girl in the distance. You hesitate for a bit, thinking of what should you do, but it's too late! The girl noticed you, and she turns to face you...
"Irziel?" It just slipped out of your mouth. What is or who is Irziel and why did

"W...wait, before that, are you going to charge me for this? If you'll be asking for any trauma, a near death experience is there, but I don't want to add in having to struggle with my current budget. I hope you understand."
"What, you don't have money?! You came in front of the grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grand-grandson of Pyrasadus, and you don't have money? I've spent the last 30 years of my life trying to figure out the secrets of my ancestors, to be able to freely control time and space... so I can figure out next week's lottery number, to get enough money to move out from this shithole. And you're wasting my time with this shit?!"

"Hey man, calm down, I was just passing by here and you were the one who invited me in. Besides, I'm pretty sure the lottery is a trap to catch time travelers."

"Wait, you didn't come here? Why didn't you say that earlier? ... Also, you think everyone who won the lottery is a time traveler? Interesting idea, maybe I could write a blogpost about it, I just need to find a catchy title..."

"Yeah, definitely time travelers, that's how the Feds would get you. Try to win smaller amounts, not the big one. Anyway, I was just passing by, since this was near where I nearly died a whole while back. Catchy title? I dunno, not too great with that. Anyway, I still remember my promise with ya, I'm still filling out that diary. Give me a while longer."

You're Tom, 29, single, and a full time wageslave. There's not much to talk about your life, today was a usual day for you. You're walking home late at night after a long day of wageslaving. Your coworkers fucked up everything they could then left, so you had to fix all their bullshit---just like always. The weather is also horrible, it's cold and there's a fucking winter storm out here, but at least it means you don't have to deal with the crowd of people. In fact, you're the only person walking down the road, only a few people in cars dare to go anywhere in this weather.
You reach the shop you were heading for, to buy some food for dinner, but the entrance is dark. You walk closer and you notice a small sign: "CLOSED DUE TO WEATHER."
"Shit," you sigh and start walking back home. You hope you can still find something edible in your fridge, because there's no way you will go find a different shop in this weather.
You suddenly hear a low, grumbling sound. You stop and look around, but you don't see anything. What is this? Finally, when you look up, you see a big lump of snow falling toward you! This view shocks you, and before you could react, the avalanche hits you and you pass out.

When you regain your senses, you wake up... in a forest like thing? It's certainly not winter here, it should be about 30 °C (86 °F) here, but it feels much hotter due to the high humidity. You look at yourself, it looks like you're naked, the only piece of clothing you have is a bracelet yo

"Well, let's get to sleep, and probably get ready for a nightmare possibly. Wonder if I'll be tied up again or something," you murmur as you prepare to go to sleep. You check that your alarm clock is still set up, then you go to sleep. It only takes a few moments for you to fell asleep.

End of Chapter One

Um, the reply limit here is 500 I think, I'm not sure whether we could finish this thing before that, and well, it's better to stop the story on a cliffhanger, so here it is.

I believe in being the change one wishes to see, so fuck it. If we don't have enough characters to fill a football team, we'll make some. You'll just have to make do with the shitty "art".

Welcome to the world of 50 Quest! In this quest you'll be going on the adventure of a lifetime! Quite literally, because after 50 choices you'll fucking die. There are no backdoors, miracles, or deals to get around it. 50 choices, and then it's over for you. Better make sure to keep easy fixes around for whatever trouble you'll create.

Since this is the opener and you probably don't want to waste too many choices on speccing, as a freebie you get to decide all that in one go! What is your:
-name
-sex
-race
-age
-general appearance (don't go overboard, my drawing skills are clearly nonexistent)

I won't put in special conditions like "first poster with a 3 in their post" or "next doubles" since I doubt the userbase currently reaches double digits. Choices will be decided on a first come, first serve basis. Don't expect any rhythm for deliveries either. Could be in a few hours, could be days. If you wanna make sure you get the next choice, you'd better check in regularly.

You peer through a telescope that's conveniently placed right in the middle of the bridge, behind the crew's battle stations so they don't notice what you're doing.
That's about all the luck you can hope for, unfortunately. Checking ship after ship you only find one mean looking mug after the other. Makes sense, you suppose. A raid on a fortress of one of the galaxy's most powerful conglomerates would only attract the most hardened or ambitious criminals. Still, you had hoped for at least one ship of wannabe hacktivist college kids.
Before you, the Vault still looms ominously, its vantablack-tinted windows yielding no secrets even to the ship's probing telescope. They still haven't made a move, even though the pirates seem to be finally breaking through its shield - not that the holes are big enough yet for a ship to pass through. What are they waiting for? Are they about to make a jump? Is help underway?
You shake your head. It's useless to be pondering these questions. You've got your own problems going on, and those take precedence. For one, even if you found a sympathetic ship to take you in, how are you going to get off this one? Jump out the front door in their direction and hope you float at the right angle?

Wat do?





44 choices remain.

Jump out of the front door and aim at one of the holes in the ship's shield.

This sounds like an interesting idea I like this
See if you can use a trusty can of hairspray you (hopefully) have to direct yourself in space.
Are we dead?

Yes. We misfired the hairspray and sent ourselves hurtling into empty space where we encountered almost instant death due to our body fluids freezing in the -270°C void.
