Due to the fact that I have noticed that some writers seem to start one DiD after another which may be still uncompleted, whether due to lack of readers or loss of interest, I have added a little "ACTIVE" status to the thread. Basically, every DiD that has had a reply or entry from the Author within the last three months will be considered active.

Hopefully, what this will mean is that those looking for the latest DiD's that are still in progress can find them more easier than having to sift through the index or the forum. This might also attract more readers to the DiD's that are active and thus motivate the writer to continue the DiD for longer.

It's a longshot, but it only took a few seconds extra to add the feature. :roll:

Again, thank you.

Also, if you feel so inclined, you can even make a note that 'A Pirate's Story' is completed.

I would have done so at the beginning for all the finished ones, but I didn't really think it was necessary because everything that's not active, people will just assume that it has been either completed or abandoned. The Active status is just to let people know which ones are still rolling at the moment. :)

If there is enough demand,I might fill out Norman's story.
But unless I find the save-game file,it will only be a story,not taken from actual game-play.

For now I am continuing with Ronny's story.


Ronny's story finished and a new sequel started.

Sequel based in AP.
Ronny's sector over-run with Split.

Norman save game found. Available if anyone wants to give me a site to upload to for them.

Bridging stories may come in the future.

Don't expect one based on Rebirth any time soon after launch,as I am unlikely to purchase immediately.

Hi there,

I would like to request a moderator to please allow someone else continue updating the thread. I've been running it for a while but unfortunately do not really have the time at the moment to keep it up. I'm really sorry about this, and I hope someone will be kind enough to take over. Thanks very much.

List of DiD's

The Index is below.

Seeing as all the DiD's have been moved to the Creative Universe I thought it would be time to have a list of all of them. I will try update this as much as possible and keep up to date with any new ones.

Hopefully this index and all the great DiD's that have been teleported here will spark some new interest into the CU. Please remind me to add your DiD if by some chance I have missed it out or forgotten to add it.

What is it?

A DiD is a creative way of describing your gameplay experience from a single-player game like the X-Games. Usually the creator/author will set some basic ground rules and principles to make it interesting to the reader, including one very very important one: Dead is Dead (DiD). This means that when you die in the game there's no going back, you're dead for good (although some authors have managed to make exceptions in this case but we won't go into that).

A DiD can be in a straight player-to-player explanation of your actions, thinking and decisions in the game or, alternatively, can be in a story form. Both are perfectly acceptable and are only a matter of taste. Many DiD's also contain images, snapshots or thumbnails at regular intervals displaying their experiences in the game and providing a visual aid.

Some DiD's also have a "Join-In" function to allow other players to interact and participate in either the creative material, general storyline or even to "play" parts in their own version of the game.

How To Make One?

So now you know what it is you've decided to try it out yourself. How? Here are some simple steps to making your own DiD:

1) Load any of the X-Games (the newer it is, the more likely you will have readers) so choose preferably TC or AP, but older ones are fine too.

2) Choose a Start. Carefully pick a start from the list as it will affect your entire game and likely the attraction of your DiD. I do NOT advise Custom. It doesn't matter which start you choose, just make sure it's the one you want and tell your readers which one you choose.

3) Tweak your game. Use the Script Editor or Cycrow's Cheat Package to add, take away, change or edit anything in your game that you feel is a necessary element to your game, but be sure to tell your viewers what you have done. In some cases you can even create an entirely new start with the editor such as I have done in my DiD by changing your starting position, ship, credits and possessions.

4) Rules. If you want to add extra ground rules in addition to the default DiD (Dead is Dead) rule you have to list them right at the start. Rules can severely restrict your gameplay but add to the attraction of your DiD and bring more interested readers.

5) List your mods - this is a must. Always, always, always mention which mods or additional scripts you are using, how much you will use them and why you are using them. If you don't do this it can confuse or even upset players when they try to follow a similar path. For example, if you are using the BSG mod but don't inform your readers at the start you can only imagine the confusion it will cause later when you say that you bought the Galactica.

6) Introduce a Prologue/Introduction. If you want to write the DiD in a story form then you will need some kind of a basis to build on, perhaps even explaining why you choose to go a certain path (eg. Pirate, Trader, Complex Builder).

7) Write while playing. If you want to include tutorial information and not just pointless waffle then you might want to write while playing. This way you write it while it's still fresh in your mind and you can maximize tips, hints and suggestions to new and experienced players alike.

8 ) Assess your Assets. Make sure you include what you own and also your progress at the end of each chapter or at regular intervals to allow your readers to keep up. This doesn't need to be 3 pages long but perhaps just a basic summary of ships, stations and credits.

9) Be honest. If you die, let the readers know. If you scripted in an extra ship, let the readers know. If you edited the game to give you the biggest baddest gun in the game, let your readers know. If you don't do this you will lose your readers' trust and they might even stop reading your DiD.

10) Adding your own unique touch. Of course, nothing is stopping you from making your DiD different to others by writing it in a particular way or adding your own mood to the thread. In the end, there is no hard set rule about how to write your DiD, the above are just tips to help those who are perhaps a bit puzzled as to where to start or how to write their DiD. Happy Gaming and try not to die! :)

*ACTIVE = DiD's that are still in progress. Author's must have written an entry or a comment to insure the status of his/her thread in the last three months.

**Some of these DiD's have not been transferred to the Creative Universe Forums. All new DiD's according to Egosoft (not me) must be placed in the Creative Universe subsection of the forums.

*UPDATED 07/05/12*

(Common Threads) *STORY SPOILERS*

This is an idea suggested by Libelnon, listing common linking threads between various DiD's. The most readily recognized link is between Nuklear-Slug's second and third DiD's, with the character of Steve who began in the Second and became the main character of the Third. As such, some of these will be by their very nature spoilers. If you haven't finished, avoid these.

Nuklear-Slug: Zen and the Art of Running Away/ Wanton Use of Nukes and the Path to Galactic Conquest

Common thread: Leo 'Steve' Kayean.
Originally a marine, 'recruited' by burned Split Spy turned pirate Mak G'yvr, Steve became a legend, who was known to have failed only one boarding operation in his career and survived the destruction of a Terran Osaka. Believed dead by his previous employer, Steve was able to escape Terran Space in an act of unparalled skill and insane luck, and rise to out do his erstwhile employer. Ultimately though, his attempt to take an ATF Tyr would be his downfall. But the pirates all wonder, was that really enough to defeat a legend like Steve? Who knows?
Scion Drakhar/Triaxx2: A Pirates Story> From Nothing> PRODIGAL SON/ A Pirates Revenge> Best Served Cold.

Common Thread: 'Scion' Drakhar
The story of 'Scion' Drakhar is a difficult one to tell, because while he was able to achieve great things by acts of piracy, his successors were his true legacy. His son Drake rose from the streets of Argon Prime to commit his first act of piracy before he even left the surface of the planet, stealing a Discoverer from a dying man. Through a series of events too unbelievable to be retold in such a short form, Drake went on to go from a lone pirate, picking at the trade lanes to the captain of a combat frigate. Along the path, he would be joined by companions of all shapes, sizes and dispositions, and innumerable flavors of insanity. What started as a one-man operation, rapidly expanded into a full-blown military and commercial empire, supporting nearly half a dozen sectors, and producing enough firepower to eliminate the universe several times over. In the course of doing so, he would become a threat to the Terrans and learn an undying hatred for the Paranid, quelched only slightly by his hunger for Paranid ships. Ultimately he would be brought down by his own Avaricious appetite. In attempting to clear out a pirate problem, his empire would be stretched to the breaking point, and the combined weight of the forces of his enemies would be brought to bear to destroy him utterly.

And yet from these ashes, Drake refused to quit, and began to climb his way back up, with nothing more than a few thousand people to protect, a TL to house them, and a single combat fighter to protect it with. Drake's burning ambition to destroy those who had taken him, caused him to fly the long path from Grand Exchange to Argon Prime, cutting a path by force for the TL to pass safely. Where his story will go, we do not know.


Even as Drake began his struggles in one universe, in another, a secret group of Argon scientists, operating in utter secrecy, harvest a sample of 'Scion' Drakhar's DNA and begin rebuilding him. But the DNA isn't whole, and to make it viable, it ends up a female. Anki Drakhar is given a Pirate Kestrel and a mission. Destroy the Paranid. Like Drake, Anki begins carving an empire out of the ashes of her 'father' and through sheer tenacity and cunning, she begins reaching for the stars. Unlike Drake however, Anki fights alone, making war only upon the Paranid, and seeking allies amongst those who dislike them as much as she does. And while the two may not know it, they mirror one another in many things. from hatred of the Paranid, to a tendency to over react and order measures far in advance of the proper measured response. And like him, her hatred would become a personal thing after the carrier that had become her home, was destroyed by a Paranid, and her mission became one held near to her heart.

Following the loss of the carrier, Anki became even more intent on the annihilation of the Paranid. Only time will tell the end to her tale.

Hey, I'm posting this to announce that I've taken over the DiD listing from dragon dream. If you happen to have a DiD you need added, or if you've got one that has been made available as a PDF, for example by the fantastic services of _Zap_, please let me know and I'll update your status accordingly. Thank you.

Hi Triaxx, I'd like to ask you to remove "Shadows of a lost Colony" and "A second Chance to screw up" from the list, as they ended up being scraps i'm not really content with.
