*A small note to potential new writers: The process of becoming an author of "The Gamer" takes a long time to complete and is not as simple as it sounds, so do take note of that if you decide you want to take a part in writing a branch of this story.

All stories branch off of TheDespaxas story ("trunk") unless otherwise specified.

It is highly recommended that you don't skip out on chapters that are "on the way" to the path/branch that you want to get to. prior chapters that come before are considered a part of the branch's story , and provide context that may be important to understand it.

Branch locations and descriptions: Edit

TheDespaxas (Starts with 1. "Introduction")

In a pure gamer mindset John knows that what you have is often less important than how you use it. Follow this branch to learn how he will trick his way into power and wealth, use his wits to survive, and smooth talk girls from this world and a few others. At heart a trickster of sort, nerdy and pervy, he learns to deal with responsibilities to build a better life for himself and his loved ones.
TheScyle[Dropped] (Starts with 5. "Time to find some answers", branching off from TheDespaxas' 4. "Panty-snatcher")
Description here.

Funatic (Starts with 3. "Crafty", branching off from TheDespaxas' 2. "Of course. He is even surprised to see it is optional.S

In my branch you will find: FUN, followed by some minor misery followed by more fun. Banter, some politics, lots of fighting gals and a wide, fighting harem sprinkled into one of the higher-fantasy branches (centered all around the Abyssal globe) around, the adventures of an Arcane and Elemental using John.

Neo_kenka (Starts with 11. "A fae encounter", branching off from TheDespaxas' 10. "Applied Maths")

John the Wayfaring Summoner. With portals, minions, and a metaphysical temple of hot bitches in his head, John tries to navigate the Abyssal multiverse as he comes to grips with cross-dimensional tyranny, gray moral dilemmas, and a singular truth: that reality is a dream, and only a madman would wake the sleeper
Lalelilo69 (Starts with 3. "Hungry", branching off from TheDespaxas' 2. "Of course. He is even surprised to see it is optional.")
Water. Earth. Fire. Air. Is this Avatar: The Last Airbender? No, but it’s super similar because in this branch, John will gain the power of the four elements. Along the way he will meet sexy ladies, summon sexy allies, and battle sexy enemies. But what’s a bunch of sexy without sex? Not this branch, because John will fuck them all (some exclusions may apply).
MythenOakhier[Closed] (Starts with 2. "No Time", branching off from TheDespaxas' 1. "Introduction")
A branch that combines Necromancy and assassin skills, Final Fantasy VII and other games. Watch for the recurring death of an antagonist.

IWriteWithATalon (Starts with 3. "Tricky." branching off from TheDespaxas' 2. "Of course. He is even surprised to see it is optional")

Hi everybody! I'm IWriteWithATalon, and my branch is focused around John finding true allies in an Abyss filled with war. Given the ability to Purify Abyssal creatures into living beings, will he engage his own flawed world or retreat into a perfected one of his own creation? Only time - and a lot of ridiculous leveling - will tell. Draws inspiration heavily from Hellsing, Disgaea, and a variety of other sources.
Razorswift (Starts with 11. "Actually...", branching off from TheDespaxas' 10. "Applied Maths")
'ello Razorswift here, if you're looking for a branch filled with Viking chicks, video game hijinks, softcore BDSM and weird crafting, then you've come to the right place. Also, I have some nice mystery and a lot of unique ideas for Barriers if you're into that. Storywise it’ll be a mix of mystery and urban fantasy.
Zewesman (Starts with 3. "Smartly", branching off from TheDespaxas' 2. "Of course. He is even surprised to see it is optional.")
Tired of all the goodie two shoes mage Johns flinging magic spells at every bad guy? Tired of him always solving other people’s problems for little to no gain for himself? Want a John that kicks ass, takes names, and fucks who he wants? Then this is the branch for you! Featuring the module system, allowing John to be a number of different RPG classes (as well as others) for an exciting time!
Cliffe (Starts with 6. "It's not all that much of a surprise really..." branching off from TheDespaxas' 5. "Boring literature, zen and girl watching")
In this branch, John goes down the path of building into his strength stat and using strength based abilities. He learns how to fight in hand to hand (melee) combat and has a tendency to rush headlong into new problems. Lots of domination and submission in this branch. Read through here to find out one of the things that might happen when John starts out without the guidance of a Warden or another Abyssal entity to help him on his path.
CalamitousIntent (Starts with 4. "An interruption" branching off from TheDespaxas' 3. "Guilty.")
Do you like explorations of mental trauma, hideous monsters from beyond reality and the sense of being tossed around like a ball in a park full of dobermans? Then you might find my take on John appealing. Yes, there is also sex too, I promise.
aVeryHotApplePie (Starts with 9. "Skipping school for the day can't hurt, can it?", branching from Funatic's 8. "Wisdom.")
You’ll find plenty of sword and sorcery in the other branches, and if that’s your thing you’ll find it here too. What there hasn’t been until now is a John equipped with some good old charm. So come right this way if you’re looking for a swashbuckling John built primarily in charisma. My branch is heavily inspired by grimm-dark fairy tales and the Persona series. Either way, tune in here goofs, gaffs, and wolf girls to keep you entertained in this branch!

Izix (Starts with 3. "Creatively", branching from 2. "Of course. He is even surprised to see it is optional") optional")
