Like twitch plays but on Mario.

This game is a cyoa on IOS (possibly android)

I find it unlikely that a lot of people will read everything but we'll see how it goes.

Chapter 1

They say there is a very fine line between bravery and stupidity. As I stand here, in the middle of this forest, gazing at all of the explosions far in the distance, I realize I may well have crossed that line, to a point of no return.

My name is Barry. I am twenty-eight years old, and I could quite accurately be described as your everyday ordinary guy. I have no talents, no particular skills and no academic background. The only thing that defines me is my lifelong obsession to become a mage. It is what I’ve wished for ever since I was five years old. It has been my driving passion throughout life, as I’ve constantly amassed knowledge about mages and travelled the world in the hopes of finding a way to make my dream come true.

After endless years of searching through dusty tomes and weathered parchments I have finally found a way to do it.

The catch? I need to first win a tournament against the most powerful mages in the world. Sounds crazy? That’s probably because it is. But it is far too late to go back now. The only way that’s left for me is forward.

As I stand here, knowing that it’s no longer possible to return to my normal life, I can’t help but feel quite...

A. Excited

B. Calm

C. Afraid

I assume Pirate was just the only one to show interest. If I'm mistaken, more than one person can choose and the option with the most votes will win. Tie will be broken by randomizer.

Next update in a couple hours

It's all good...just clarifying. I'm hoping to make this a series of sorts. Not always playing cyoas but other games too. Will have to figure out how that will work though.

...afraid. Deep down, I always knew this would happen. I’ve been spending the past few weeks getting mentally prepared and making plans. Telling myself I was ready for whatever this tournament is going to throw at me. But once I got here, once I knew there was no way for me to go back, all of my confidence turned to uncertainty, and all of my courage turned to fear. I am going up against the strongest mages in the world. No amount of planning could ever really make me prepared for this. But it’s too late to change my mind now. I’ve had enough time to back out of this before coming here. I am going to win this tournament against all odds. I’m going to do it. I just have to...

There’s an explosion maybe a few hundred feet from my location. The fights have already begun. And one of them is much closer to me than I would have hoped. There’s no way I can get in a fight with any of the mages at this point. I need to avoid combat for as long as possible if I am to survive until the end.

I head in the opposite direction from where I’ve heard the explosion. As I am heading towards the end of the forest, I start hearing voices. There are two mages talking in a clearing a few feet away from me. I hide behind a tree and take a quick glance towards the clearing.

It seems the two mages have just finished fighting. One of them has the appearance of an ordinary thug. He is wearing a simple stained white shirt, leather pants and a belt full of throwing knives. His untrimmed black beard hides a wicked smile. Just by seeing the confidence in his eyes, I can clearly tell he is the victor of the skirmish. The other mage is wearing heavy armor, but his shield lies on the ground besides him and he is barely holding his sword anymore.

Taking a closer look at the mage in armor, I notice his head is bald, his skin is dark, he is likely in his mid-forties and he has a scar on his forehead, shaped like an ‘X’. I’ve read of a mage matching this exact description who went by the name of Daren, and he was quite legendary, but would he lose so easily to some common thug? The mage in the white shirt answers my question as he addresses the one in armor, while casually playing with one of his knives.

“The legendary mage Daren! The savior of the eastern continent. The healer in armor. They say you’ve travelled the world, saving countless villages from destruction. That you’ve once fought ten rock golems by yourself, only to defend a small child. I guess this goes to show, you should never really trust legends, aye? I always knew all of those tales about mages as strong as giants were just codswallop. Hell, if all those ‘legendary’ mages that joined this tournament are as weak as you, I’m going to win this by sundown!”

He starts laughing but he stops suddenly.

“Wait, who’s there?” he says, as he turns towards me.

I quickly pull my head back behind the tree, and press my back against it, trying to breathe as silently as possible.

“I know you’re there, coward. Show yourself or I’ll have one of my knives find you!”

A. Stay silent

B. Show myself

C. "I see no reason to show myself to you."

Good to see some more people ^_^
---------------------------------------------------------

“I see no reason to show myself to you,” I tell him.

As he pinpoints my location from the sound of my voice, the mage makes a rather long pause before speaking again.

“A stillwater, eh?” he says, finally. He tried hard to keep his composure when asking his question, but the tremor in his voice betrayed him. He is afraid.

His sudden change of attitude towards me is not completely unexpected. The existence of stillwaters is one of the main reasons I’ve dared to dream that I might have a chance to win this tournament.

Stillwaters are a very rare breed of mages that are known to be incredibly powerful. Once of them is said to have destroyed an entire city in an instant some twenty years ago, with only a flick of his fingers. The city of Olmnar was said to have been one of the greatest cities on this continent, but it was wiped off the map just like that, in a single second. Such is the power of these stillwaters.

But what is even more interesting about these stillwaters is that you can’t differentiate them from normal humans. Normally, you can sense the magic flowing from every being. You don’t need to be a mage to do it. By sensing their magical aura, you can tell how strong mages are before engaging them in a fight.

Stillwaters, however, have the same aura as normal humans. And if you were to run into someone that seems to have almost no magic in the middle of what is essentially the greatest mage tournament in all of history... What would you be more inclined to believe? That an average human was somehow suicidal enough to join the tournament only to get massacred? Or that you are facing one of the strongest and rarest kinds of mages that exist in the world?

“You don’t scare me, stillwater! I’m going to fill you with holes and you’ll end up begging me for mercy! I bet your legends are no more true than they were for this sad excuse for a mage standing next to me.”

A. Give him until the count of ten to retreat

B. Imply that I'm the one who destroyed the city of Olmnar
