Remember those old "Choose Your Own Adventures" books from way back in your childhood? The ones where the main characters would reach some critical point in the narrative and you got to make the decision about which way you wanted them to go? Remember how you'd choose one and the heroes succeeded and went on to the next decision, while choosing the other meant they got eaten by a monster, died a horrible death, and you had to start over?

This is sort of like that. With a twist.

See, all you good chummers out in Magespace-land are going to help me write this story. I'll start, and when it comes to a point where an important decision needs to be made, I'll stop and leave it there. That's where you come in. At the end of the chapter will be a poll, with two possible courses of action. At the end of each week, I'll look at the votes, then write the next chapter based on what the majority of you, the readers, want.

Hint: I'll give you pretty good odds that the main characters won't die horrible deaths no matter what gets decided, but hey, who knows what might happen?

Sound like fun? I hope so! Let's see where it takes us.
