The Final Thrusts

When last we left our alien-suited Cosmic Guardian, we were deciding whether to give our suit to Dale the Purple Mucus or to try and take out the planet-destroying Second Tower in Space ourselves. By a narrow three vote margin (!), we opted for the latter. And thus:

Hey, we're part of the winning side! After getting diced up and eaten, but still.

That's now two deaths, but I'm pretty sure our mother is Catwoman and thus we have nine lives. So let's see what would have happened had we given up the super suit to our buddy Dale:

We won, we won! Well, technically DALE won, but ... yeah. At least we're still alive to enjoy those unemployment benefits, amiright?!

With a successful conclusion, I'm going to draw the "Thrusts of Justice" edition of RPG Thursdays to a close. This was a lot of fun, and I really appreciate your playing along with the story. I highly encourage you to purchase your own copy of the book as there's a lot of hilarious adventure we didn't touch on at all (like two alternate characters we could have become). Many thanks to author Matt Youngmark for putting together such an entertaining and exciting adventure for us!

If anyone has suggestions for next week, whether another CYOA or something entirely different, I'd love to hear it. I'd also be very interested in your opinion of this adventure.

    well, I guess we should’ve followed The Nightwatchman way back in week one afterall. I hate when theses books lead you into double dead ends. Oh well, what’s next? Back to Lone Wolf?

    Hmmm, well that was… disappointing.
    It’s too bad Matt Youngmark’s third book isn’t finished. With a title like “Time Travel Dinosaur,” you know it should live up to his previous efforts. I’m excited for its release.
    Yeah, so….Lone Wolf?

    Personally, I like this ending. Sometimes, you have to give up your ego to do the right thing. It’s not a glorious ending, but it feels right to me.

    I also recommend the book. One thing I like about it is that, while you can take different paths, they’re all paths through the same story. It’s not like some old Choose Your Own Adventure books, where different choices take you into unrelated stories. It’s all one plot, but you see different parts of in if you make different choices.

    Well … that’s depressing.

    I will always vote for more cyoa books. They’re so much fun when done with a group.
