Ramus was a proof-of-concept system for authoring (and reading) hypertext fiction, developed between 2011 and 2012. Despite its experimental nature, several works were created with it, most of them CYOA games:

- Reasoning Right: an interactive course on logic and fallacies, which you can take at your own pace (added 2013-07-21; updated 2019-08-28).
- You I Give the Helm: A short, but replayable multiple choice adventure, featuring neat typography (added 2013-04-24; updated 2019-08-28).
A lyrical piece by Conrad Cook, that I'm hosting at the author's request. Not only it looks gorgeous, it also uses the medium in a fairly intriguing way.
Juhana Leinonen's Starborn is now available in Ramus format! This was an experiment to see how well the system works in practice. It's not nearly as spectacular as the official Undum/Vorple edition, but it's much easier to copy around.
The Blue Death
It was made by Eric Forgeot for the Indigo New Language Speed-IF, using Textallion as source, and exported to Ramus.
(Ramus was also included as an output format for Textallion.)
