You wake up in the middle of the forest. The air is cool and wet. You are covered by a thick layer of branches and leaves. As you look around you notice that it is quite dark and there are very few paths to be found. All that rushes through your head is one thought. "I need to get out of here."
Your only clear path is to the [[North]].You decide to go North. The path here is quite muddy. The mud sticks between the treads of your shoes making it harder and harder to walk. Eventually you run into a river on your left side.
[[Examine the River->River]]
[[Continue on the Path->Continue]]
[[Turn around and go back->Start]] You decide to go East. You start to realize this is truly a path less traveled as there is no path. All there is before you is trees as large as giants. They almost feel alive as you can see some of their leaves swaying in the breeze. You start winding through the trees, just trusting your gut to get you out of the thick forest.
[[Continue winding through the trees->Winding]]
You decide to head south. You start following the wide trail. As you look at the trail you realize that it is covered in small pebbles. You continue to walk forward and suddenly the trees open into a bright blue sky. Ahead of you is a brilliant shining lake with a shallow pebbly beach. The trail curves to your left.
[[Hangout at the lake->Lake]]
[[Continue on the trail->Trail]]You are now heading west. This path is much smaller than the others, it is just wide enough to fit you. As you start walking away from the small opening you woke up in the ground begins to gradually incline.[[You continue up the incline->Incline]]The river is flowing strong and clear. It babbles and barbles as it rushes past. The current seems strong. You decide to rest on the bank of the river is made of soft mud and sand. As you begin to look around you see an abandoned sifter.
[[Go back to the path->Continue]] You decide to continue on the path, but you can still hear the river. Are you sure you don't want to go to the [[River]]?

At the top of the incline far into the trees is a chalet. It seems to have been closed for several years. You look around in case to see if someone is nearby, but still it is just you on the trails.
[[Explore the chalet?->Chalet]]
[[Continue on the path->Still going]]Establish PC, leaning towards a guy
If players interact with new scenery they will find objects to get them through the game
Every path is a different "story" persay so if you play four times you could get a total of 5 ish outcomes? 4 winning for each path and 1 for if there is no interactions.
A little difficult, but will figure out
Maybe instead make the player have to pick up elements and once they do they have to input them into a gate and then they are let into a lost secret society
Airbender type elements
North- Water element
East- Earth element
South- Air element
West-Fire elementThe sifter is in good condition, but it is not brand new. Although, it is not in perfect shape either. It's frame is a bit splintered, but the mesh is in tact. There is a low part of the river near by perfect enough to sift through the soft sediment below.
[[Do you dig?->Dig]]
[[Continue On]] You decide to continue on the path. As you trudge on you come upon a new path, this one smaller. There are still no person or civilization in sight and you have no other choice then to go on to the new [[path->West]].You pick up the sifter and move diligently to the shallow edge of the river bank. In one swift motion you plunge the mesh into the soft sediment. Quickly you bring the sifter into the rushing water and start to skim off the muck and dirt.
You repeat this many times having that feeling in the pit of your stomach that there is something here calling to you. It is on the 5th pass through that the weight in the sifter changes. As the water rushes and washes away the mud suddenly the hidden treasure emerges.
[[Do you examine the treasure?->Water Element]]
[[Continue On]]You pull the treasure off of the mesh and put the sifter back into the grass. You look down and a small, blue, square stone sits in your hand. It cannot be more than an inch in size. Surprisingly it bears a lot of weight, almost like gravity itself it set into this small stone.
[[Take it with you?-> Take Water]]
[[Leave it behind?->Continue On]]$water to true
You decide to store the small blue stone in the front zipper pocket of your backpack for safe keeping. You continue on the path, but eventually it leads to a new terrain. The path gets smaller and starts heading west. As you continue you begin to realize that you are on an [[Incline]].You decide to go up and explore the chalet. You walk up to the door doubtful that it will be unlocked. To your surprise it opens with ease and you are let in to a gigantic open room. Straight ahead is a fireplace. You move closer and are startled. Sitting next to the fireplace is a freshly cut stack of pine wood.
[[Start a fire?->Start Fire]]
[[Leave and continue on the path?->Path Continues]]Double-click this passage to edit it.Starting a fire does sound very nice. It is a bit nippy outside and the light would help you possibly see more of the room. Although it seems pretty empty. You start to unstack the wood to put into the fireplace. You hear something tumble and drop to the ground from the pile.
