My name is Corious Millerson. I lived in a wooden cottage in the forest and played games like "Joust" on my amazing old Commodore 64. It was a good life. However, as I was writing in my Hello Kitty diary one afternoon, I heard a knock at the door...

Tale begins....
Corious hears a knock at the door. What does he do?


Mr. Jimbo

Gumstick of Pwning™


This is merely a place to converse about whatever matters you may deem worthy of discussing. Please keep the discussions related to this blog or its story. If the comment box gets irritatingly long, I'll just make another lobby entry with a new comment box.



This is the characters section. As the adventures of Corious unfold, new people will be introduced into the game. If they join up with him, they will appear here.

Corious Millerson

Corious Millerson is a charming lad with a nearly humorous sense of humor. He's quite adventurous and has recently taken after his father in one insignificant way: he grew a beard. Girls love him, guys want to be him, and moms want their daughters to marry him. Other than that, he's really not very interesting.

Sir Bryan

Sir Bryan has quite the imagination and tends to think himself a superhero. He can't walk in a straight path most of the time and usually ends up running along and bouncing off of things, or swinging on objects, or climbing obstacles. Most of his jokes aren't funny, and the majority of them consist of lame puns, but he still tells them and laughs anyway. Brian also rarely passes up any opportunity to hit on pretty girls when they're around.

Grandpa Charlie

Corious' grandpa is an ooooold man. In most cases, that would mean he's also a wise man. But this isn't necessarily one of those cases. Grandpa Charlie tends to believe he is a wizard and even claims to know quite a few spells. So far, the only "spells" people have seen him do, are when he made his pet cat "Whiskers" mysteriously disappear (nobody knows where she is now), and when he summoned an ale, which suddenly appeared in his hand (because his wife gave it to him.) He was thought to be dead for a long time, until just recently when Corious found him in his room and learned that he'd merely been captured for a time by who knows what.

Mr. Jimbo

Mr. Jimbo was Corious' childhood friend. They used to do everything together until Mr. Jimbo mysteriously disappeared one day. Recently, however, Corious stumbled upon an old microwave in the forest behind his cottage and upon opening it, found Mr. Jimbo sitting inside holding a tiny umbrella. Corious was too excited to ask questions and Mr. Jimbo doesn't talk anyway so they would've been to no avail. Not much else is known about Mr. Jimbo, but it's rumored that he has some mysterious special powers.


Welcome to Tales of Corious Millerson!

This is a game where everybody can participate and where you shape the story! For instance, if Corious is in a room with a box, you might say “lick box”, “pick up box”, or anything in between. You can even leave the room, if there is an exit that way! Some base rules:

Only Brian narrates. It’s his story. You just give commands in the comments section.
GOOD: Walk through the green door.
BAD: Corious walks through green door, and finds that he catches his shoelace, So he bends down and gives it a tug.

No deciding the consequences to actions. My story. Not yours.
GOOD: Open the box.
BAD: Open the box and find a gun.

No if/then statements or macros. They make you miss important stuff. Making creative macros to solve puzzles with mass trial and error is cheating.
GOOD: Is the key in the door?
BAD: If there’s a key in the door, open it. Otherwise, find a key then open it.

Some of the following posts will be game sections, such as character info, lobby area(s), etc. Then the game shall begin. Also, I'm the Dungeon Master (in a manner of speaking) so anything I say goes. Disagreements between contributers (you) will be left to chance (I'll roll to see who wins the dispute). All fights (attacks and such) will be chance too. I'll only control character stats and things. That's all for now!

P.S. This game should remain pretty lighthearted. HAVE FUN WITH IT, HOSERS! =D
P.S.2 But be careful...characters CAN die. Resurrection might be possible too.
P.S.3 PLAY!! I don't care if you're afraid to contribute or think you're uncreative, just give commands anyway. Don't take any of this too seriously. ;)
