What? It seems like a fun idea, so I'm tryin'.

Well, this is an interactive webcomic. For those of you who don't know what that means, an interactive webcomic is a piece of sequential art, made a few panels at a time, in which the actions of the main character are chosen by votes made by the readers.

Also, I ask that the votes would be formatted something like this:

> Befriend the Watermelon

It's easier for me to find the votes then.

But now, without further adieu, let us begin!

Sorry, I can't say that I have. :/

Anyway, I think I have a partial update here.

Menu Explanation Time

http://i608.photobucket.com/albums/tt165/Zorosuke/CYOAMenu.png

Within the menu, there are a few things you can check: Skills, Equipment, Memories, and your Inventory. There's also two maps, one of your immediate surroundings, and one world map that will get bigger as you explore.

http://i608.photobucket.com/albums/tt165/Zorosuke/CYOASkills.png

Here are your skills. There's your general knowledge, language understanding, spell list, and your Testawesomerone levels. General Knowledge, Languages, and Spells are descriptive enough with just their name. Let's focus on Testawesomerone.

Because of your gender, you have a gland that produces Testawesomerone into your blood whenever you do something awesome. It let's you perform feats and abilities that are, simply put, awesome.

http://i608.photobucket.com/albums/tt165/Zorosuke/CYOAEquips.png

These are what you have equipped at the moment. Right now, you're naked, save for your glasses. Might wanna fix that.

http://i608.photobucket.com/albums/tt165/Zorosuke/CYOAMemories.png

Memories, will be explained when needed.

http://i608.photobucket.com/albums/tt165/Zorosuke/CYOAInventory.png

Your inventory, what you're carrying.
