Watchers of this board know that I sometime's lead let's plays of choose your own adventure books produced by Choice of Games. Now that I'm all settled in my new house, I think it's that time again , this time with : Study in Steampunk (https://www.choiceofgames.com/user-contributed/study-in-steampunk/)


Steam-powered mechs meet forbidden sorcery! Inspired by Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, Jekyll & Hyde, and Jack the Ripper, "A Study in Steampunk: Choice by Gaslight" is an epic 277,000-word interactive mystery novel by Heather Albano, co-author of "Choice of Broadsides," "Choice of Zombies," and "Choice of Romance: Affairs of the Court." Your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

The game is afoot! In a world of gaslit streets, mysteriously long-lived foreign nobles, and master criminals, will you defend your Empire from spies or overthrow it from within? Advocate science and reason or learn forbidden magic? Romance men, women, both, or neither? End as a healer, a freedom fighter, a vigilante, or a traitor?

The fate of the Empire is in your hands!

This Let's play is conducted with the express permission of the publisher.

What are the rules?

1) Anyone may join , or leave, at any time.
2) We will read one or more passages of the book. At the conclusion of each session, we will vote
on the choices to be made. The winning choices will be used to select the ongoing path as we continue the story.
3) In the event of a tie , the tie will be resolved via www.random.org using a 1d100 role. Each choice will be rolled against in strict order of the first vote. For instance, if there are three choices (A,B,C), and the first vote is for C while the second is for A, the roll-off will be done in the strict order C, A, B.
4) All votes will be concluded Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 5:30 PM eastern time. Update will be published as soon thereafter as practicable but no later than 11:59PM of the same day.

When will the game start?

Game will start Monday, 20 Jun 2016, at 5:30 PM.

Hope to see you there! Good luck, and have fun!
