Here you can find links to HTML pages containing the transcripts, as well as links to download a pdf version of the episode transcripts for Pandemonium Cycle: The Potion Wars. The transcripts for the Scandalous Scarlet Moon are included in the game (under the data folder).  A few things to note:

0. IMPORTANT: In the transcripts, the player character is a woman named “Juliana,” however in-game you can customize your name and gender as part of creating your character. If you want to play a male named Raul, you can. The transcripts simply default to Juliana and “she” because that reads more naturally than “\name{}” and \hisher{}.”

1. Although they look like CYOA games, they are not. In order to properly experience the game, you should, you know, play the game. Reading my transcripts is sort of like reading the transcript of a movie. Sure you can get a sense of the quality of the writing, and of the story, but you sure as hell aren’t experiencing it like you’re supposed to.

2. The purpose of these transcripts is to give you a sample of what kind of content/writing you can expect. As a result, the static HTML pages aren’t particularly pretty or efficient (each transcript is a single HTML page, but they easily run into triple digit physical page numbers). If you want a prettier version, download the PDF. If you want the prettiest version, play the game.

3. The transcripts as shown here do *not* reveal all the information about what’s going on. In particular, they do not display the layout of dungeons (though they do contain the events you’ll experience in the dungeons). They also don’t display any python code that may be executed by the node when the game is being played.

4. They are (obviously) *rife* with spoilers. Read at your own risk.
