    GET YE FLASK
    A Puzzling Text Adventure​

    You are a band of ADVENTURERS trying to attain a mystical, powerful FLASK which you are certain will bring you a great deal of MONEY and HAPPINESS. You must WORK TOGETHER to solve PUZZLES and achieve various GOALS on your way to finding and GETTING said FLASK. There will be ENEMIES, there will be ILLOGICAL ROOM TRAPS, and there will be GLITCHES, but most of all, there will be WEIRD PUZZLES.

    This adventure is intended to be viewed as MULTIPLAYER INTERACTIVE FICTION and may contain references to certain PSEUDO-TEXT ADVENTURES featured elsewhere on the internet. It is carried out through a series of SESSIONS, each of which has a particular goal; after each SESSION there is a SESSION EPILOGUE which explains how the ADVENTURERS reach the LOCATION and SITUATION presented in the next SESSION. SESSIONS may be joined at any time by any PLAYER. PLAYER ACTIONS may be HELPFUL or HARMFUL to solving PUZZLES and achieving GOALS.

  3. >Display rules and tips

    Like most TEXT ADVENTURES, this one may be JOINED or LEFT at any time, and has no need of CHARACTER SHEETS because the game defines your ROLE and you determine your ACTIONS.
    The ADAPTIVE SYSTEM INTERFACE allows various COMMANDS, even nonsensical ones, to be performed. However it has LIMITATIONS: It cannot process more than two (2) COMMANDS from a single player at one time, and complete nonsense or terrible spelling may result in COMMAND ERRORS or MISINTERPRETATION OF COMMANDS. In this game, you may CONVERSE with fellow players by merely typing. COMMANDS are entered by placing a > at the beginning of the words intended to COMMAND. This is how you perform ACTIONS.

    If a PLAYER performs an action which KILLS him or her (or another PLAYER), the dying PLAYER will lose one (1) LIFE and be unable to enter COMMANDS for the remainder of the SESSION, but still able to CONVERSE with fellow PLAYERS as a GHOST. It is recommended that you avoid letting your FELLOW PLAYERS die, however, since this will have certain disadvantageous GROUP CONSEQUENCES in the following SESSION EPILOGUE.

    IMPORTANT or INTERESTING OBJECTS and CONCEPTS will be highlighted by being in ALL CAPS. It is recommended that the PLAYERS use these to their advantage when entering COMMANDS. Sometimes HINTS displayed in one SESSION will be necessary or optionally useful in a later SESSION, so having PLAYERS who have been in PREVIOUS SESSIONS works to the team's advantage. Viewing the LOG FILES of previous SESSIONS can alleviate this for new PLAYERS but might be slightly more time-consuming.

    Each PLAYER gains one (1) POINT per ACTION which brings the group closer to achieving the SESSION GOAL. ACTIONS which do not advance, or which reverse progress, are awarded no POINTS but are also not penalized unless they lead to a DEATH, in which case the penalty is the loss of one (1) LIFE. SYNERGISTIC ACTIONS in which multiple players WORK TOGETHER to do something award each PLAYER involved the same amount of points as there are PLAYERS performing said ACTION. POINTS will probably never be important in any way unless some PLAYER manages to lose all of his or her LIVES.

    Xindaris
    : The PIECES of the WINDOW appear to include both GLASS and METAL. [1 Minute Ago 09:28 PM]
    Xindaris
    : The WINDOW is in several pieces and shards on the floor. It lets in plenty of LIGHT somehow, from each of its pieces but not the GLASS SHARDS themselves. It still lets in no AIR for some reason. [1 Minute Ago 09:28 PM]
    Vay

    Xindaris
    : You remove the SHARD OF GLASS and add it to your INVENTORY. Walking hurts a little less now. [3 Minutes Ago 09:26 PM]
    Xindaris
    : The WINDOW is, once again, on the floor, and there is a blank wall where it hung before. This is somewhat strange. [3 Minutes Ago 09:25 PM]
    Xindaris
    : Your clothing is DAPPER it seems. [4 Minutes Ago 09:24 PM]
    Ramses/Damned
    : Y [4 Minutes Ago 09:24 PM]

    Xindaris
    : You realize you are quite decently dressed. [1 Minute Ago 09:22 PM]
    Xindaris
    : You STEAL the ALARM CLOCK+BOMB from VAY. The WINDOW is lying in several pieces on the floor. The BOMB hits the wall and lands in the midst of several SHARDS OF GLASS. [1 Minute Ago 09:22 PM]

    Warmaster Severdus
    : >scream incoherently about my lack of clothes [1 Minute Ago 09:21 PM]
    Xindaris
    : The BOMB appears to be SPHERICAL. It has a simple FUSE, which makes one wonder why it's taped to an ALARM CLOCK in the first place. [1 Minute Ago 09:20 PM]
    Warmaster Severdus
    : >pick up bomb and throw it out the window in a fit of rage [1 Minute Ago 09:20 PM]

    : >punch archy in the nuts [3 Minutes Ago 09:19 PM]
    Xindaris
    : The BOOKCASE refuses to move! There must be something blcoking its path, because you are quite sure the hallway is long enough otherwise. [3 Minutes Ago 09:19 PM]
    Vay

    Xindaris

    Xindaris
    : Your STYLUS proves useless in the cutting endeavor! However, you suspect removing the PILLOWCASE might be easier anyway. [1 Minute Ago 09:16 PM]

    Xindaris
    : It looks to be a perfectly ordinary WINDOW, letting in SUNLIGHT but, due to its GLASS, no AIR. It looks out on the TOWN below. ACROSS THE STREET there is a SMITHY, as you can clearely tell by the ANVIL displayed on the sign. [10 Minutes Ago 08:43 PM]
    Neko Archy

    : The DOOR is made of wood, and closed at the moment. Its HINGES are on the left, and there is no DOORKNOB on the right. [13 Minutes Ago 08:39 PM]

    Xindaris
    : The PAPER displays a series of numbers: 1-5-7-2-8. It seems to be stuck to the bottom of the drawer for some reason. [17 Minutes Ago 08:35 PM]
    Vay

    : like this machine can interpret more than the Verb Noun syntax [23 Minutes Ago 08:29 PM]
    Xindaris
    : It's a typical ROOM for INNs of this day: two double beds, a dresser, and a wooden door. Your entire party has so little MONEY that the only equipment you possess as a group is a single KNIFE, which is resting on the DRESSER. You are already clothed, much to the relief (chagrin?) of your comrades. There is also a window to the RIGHT of the door, morning sunlight pouring through it. [23 Minutes Ago 08:29 PM]
    Neko Archy
    : that is what you are specifically not supposed to say.. [24 Minutes Ago 08:28 PM]

    : However, you are now all awake. What will you do? [25 Minutes Ago 08:27 PM]
    Xindaris
    : You are a small band of ADVENTURERS on a quest to get a mystical FLASK. This FLASK has many wonderful properties, too many to name. Right now, you are in your ROOM in the second floor of the INN. You all slept in the same ROOM because you don't have much MONEY to spare. [25 Minutes Ago 08:27 PM]
    Vay

    SESSION EPILOGUE for SESSION PROLOGUE:
    Show Spoiler
    After leaving the ROOM, the ADVENTURERS went downstairs and told the INNKEEPER what happened. the INNKEEPER explained that his WEIRD NEPHEW likes to play CONVOLUTED AND BIZARRE PRANKS from time to time, apologized, and even gave the ADVENTURERS their MONEY back.
    They left the INN and entered the SMITHY across the street. There they bought five (5) WEAPONS, spending every last bit of their MONEY including the refund from the INNKEEPER. They heard while leaving town of a CAVE with some TREASURE inside of it, which contains ENEMIES of low level. The ADVENTURERS now stand before the CAVE, preparing to enter.
     
  6. Okay, I'm gonna stop being the system for now. The prologue session was just to set up some initial conditions and get a feel for how things will go, and see whether the whole thing will work. And, I think it definitely will work as long as there are people interested in playing.

    So...we should probably plan the time for the next session. When, generally, are some people who are interested in this idea free? Like, within the next week or so--through next week's Saturday?
     
  7. ....so next friday for me? or next sunday?

    actually, a coutdown'd be awesome! if someone could help me with that.....
     
  8. I'll ping ya on msn if you're missing out
     
  9. wont help unless im on the xbox mate, what with the laptop problems and all
     
  10. I'm actually asking when you guys are free/have time because I should be fairly open most of this week.
     
  11. if you dudes agree on a time, then tell me the days away from the day it is decided, then i should be right.

    timezones jsut fuck with my head
     
  12. your Americana Saturday, my Sarterday night/ Sunday. Best time for me but not the only time for me.
     
  13. Hey, so...yes, I know. NOTHING HAPPENED this past week. So, because I really want to get at least a couple of sessions done before my impending trip to Europe puts me out of contact for several days, I'm going to try this the other way around.

    I should be free most weekdays this week, from around 10AM-10PM EST, and Saturday morning to afternoon or so, not that night though (also EST). When is everyone interested NOT free from this Monday to this Saturday?
     
  14. not free.... 12 to 1 pm, around 10 pm to 8 am all times GMT+7
     
  15. Okay so, until the Cbox is fixed to where we can have the RP channel, or unless we can all get on some messaging program like MSN together, this may have to go on hold. For the latter, I would need everyone's messenger names and it would have to be some set-in-stone period of time to work right.
     
  16. Is it too late for others to join this? Fantastic log you have there.
     
  17. As stated above, the game can be joined at any time at all, once it's in session. There isn't even a signup or character sheet needed, you just jump in with entering commands!
    But yeah, it's on hold until the cbox is fixed or an alternative is decided on.
