Taur TF CYOA by KSchnee Taur TF CYOA by KSchnee
An odd little story/game/writing prompt: you're becoming a taur, and have some control over the process!
Made using a finicky piece of software called CYOA Studio, quantencomputer.github.io/cyoa… , in imitation of a wide variety of such "CYOA" things at imgur.com/t/cyoa that generally feature images ripped from somewhere. Some of those also use a point-buy system, but they can't do much in terms of plot. I wasn't able to make images work very well, because this software always makes them huge.

I wonder what could be done in terms of using such a thing to generate a simple game world and run it? It'd be somewhere in between a simple picture, a Twine game, and a tabletop game. Something like the legislate-things-into-existence games Nomic and Dawn of Worlds, maybe.

Well now lets see if I can't brake reality or at lest common sense.  Also while you list losing your humanity and being thrown in to another world as problems, I fail to see the down side because some of us really do dream of being something different.

Crocodiles have fleas? Robot crocs have fleas? Oh dear, you must have some electronic bugs on you!

Come on man I'm a former submariner so you know I have a sever lack of common sense, and as for the tech term bug it came from actual bugs getting in to the old vacuum tube computers.

By the way, the description, "Traditional Centaur," is a bit misleading; the classical Greek centaurs had pony-size lower bodies*.  Today we think of centaurs as having horse-size bodies, and I call these "modern centaurs."

That makes more sense to me than a full-sized horse body. Adding ~750 pounds of horse to ~150 pounds of human is really unbalanced and creates problems with breathing among other things. I see a deer-centaur as having better proportions since a deer can be ~150 pounds or so.

The "Can't Reach" issue is more easily handled the way horses, do, by communal grooming sessions.  A centaur village, then, will have at least one, and quite likely more, public baths.

Yeah, I've seen that suggestion. It'd affect the whole society!

Of course.  Such a story would be a change from most, which usually completely neglect such issues.

Dear applicant, thank you for your service. We expect that in your target universe, you'll need a meat-heavy diet and more of it than you're used to as a biped. A four-footed tod needs... oh dear. Vixen, I should say. We will arrange additional funding to help you adjust. The good news is that in this world, visitors to the Fox God Shrine are occasionally "blessed" this way, so your cover story will be based on that, and the blessing comes with increased magical power over flame. Fire magic is especially useful locally, given that it's an arctic region...
