    For this game, I will need three writers to each submit a paragraph in the second person (as the protagonist). This will be the first three submissions in-thread. Then we will collectively have a voting round on which of the three paragraphs we choose to further the adventure.

    Read this. It’s kind of what we’re going for: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choose_Your_Own_Adventure

    I might tweak the format along the way but let’s see how it goes.

    The opening line of the story...

    After three days of walking, the lone Padawan cautiously enters the forest.

    You sense the Force stronger than ever here, almost blinding. Vast trees and swarms of unseen life abound as you walk a steady pace across the forest floor. Your trials have led you here, and your hope to become a Jedi Knight push you on. Your quarry lies within. You have enough rations and water for days more. Aside from your clothing and robes your only equipment is your lightsaber and the Force.

    The dreadful buzzing of the Kadu bees can be heard remotely from the deep green.
    But you know that there is no time to wait. The acolytes of Sister Vihala can't be further than one hour away. Gasping, you try to find a path between the bushes.

    Question: do you think we should have a brief discussion period before voting?

    Sure. Although I'm guessing that 3rd post is not what you were after.

    I propose we count it anyway and start the discussion. I feel that if we keep going people will start joining with time.

    So, how does the discussion work ?

    Oh but that's OK! I'm recruiting you to add the third story fragment more than to vote.

    You hear the shuttle that had brought you to the isolated world departing, leaving you alone to survive with your own skills and mastery of the Force. Your Master is not here to give you the answers. Your years of training are about to be put to the test. You reach out with the Force as you think about what to do next.

    This gives me a strong sense of the setting, my motive for being there, and what I'm taking along.

    In three snappy sentences, I feel a sense of urgency. And I'm curious who Sister Vihala is.

    I appreciate what the absence of the shuttle will mean for me. The passage is clear and direct. <3

    @VadersLaMent classic Star Warsy type quest.

    @3sm1r 0% fat, it’s like we’re joining the story that’s already started. I’m gripped.

    @Emperor Ferus Our character has been walking three days, he must have good bloody hearing. You lost me.

    Ok, discussion moment. I didn't notice the issue with the character hearing the shuttle at first in Ferus' fragment, but Punk is right.

    Then, VLM's fragment is good.
    There is just this part: "Your trials have led you here, and your hope to become a Jedi Knight push you on"...
    I am unsure about this. Is it just the hope to become a Jedi Knight to push the protagonist? I'd like either their motivation to be different, or the situation to be more desperate.

    Poll is up. Two days, but I might trim that and push on if it’s looking decisive.

    Are Kadu Bees able to render a being inert and then strip the skin from the paralysed body in under 2 minutes? My vote rests on this.
