Empowered: The Grad School Chronicles


[Author's Note: Hello all, below you will find a free-to-play choose your own adventure story written by myself. In this story, you play a newly minted grad student who quickly finds themselves amid a supernatural conspiracy corrupting the heart of their university. Something here is rotten, and it's up to you to figure out how to vanquish the threat lurking in the halls of this institution. Take care with your choices, as failure awaits behind every corner. Currently this story is a work in progress, so eventually you will come across choices that are not yet functional. Have fun!]

You wake up to the sound of your alarm. With some difficulty, you sweep your hand towards your nightstand and switch it off. Slowly, you roll out of bed and trudge over to the mirror standing in the corner of the room. 

You take stock of what you see before you: a slightly disheveled dark complexioned male in his early twenties. Your eyes drift to the reflection of your digital clock displaying "8:30" in reverse. 

Got a little bit of time before class at 10. Time to get ready. 

Luckily you prepared the coffee pot the night before, so in moments you're drinking your favorite hot beverage. A few sips later you feel energized enough to get ready. 

You shower and scarf a granola bar, bounding down the stairs of your apartment to begin your trek to Eliot University.
