Hey there. Welcome to the Star Wars Text Adventure thread. Basically, the thread will be an ongoing game that pays tribute to the days of Zork and other interactive fictions. What’s the catch? All of the adventures shall take place within the Star Wars universe. Now I’m sure most of you are familiar with text adventures, but for those of you who are not, here’s a brief explanation on how this interactive fiction is going to work: -Each text adventure we start will simulate environments in the Star Wars galaxy. -Players then use text commands to control characters and influence the environment. This can be thought of as a cross between fan fiction and role playing. -The scenarios and solutions for each challenge are all mapped out right here at my desk. Every adventure will differ, but you’ll usually be expected to figure out puzzles and find treasure. As far as the rules go, this is ABSOLUTELY a work in progress. Suggestions and comments are welcomed. -To start, points will be awarded when a player solves a crucial puzzle or finds a valuable item. -Now, in order to allow everyone to play, I will start this experiment by accepting text commands from anyone. There won’t be just ONE player controlling the character. For example, if multiple people post, I will take the INITIAL post as the next command. Then, after the next update, I will again use the INITIAL poster’s command. It could be the same person posting multiple times in a row, or it could be a bunch of different posters. Think of the adventure as a team effort, where you all have the ability to command the character. Here are some often used commands: Directional: >North (N)>South (S)>East (E)>West (W)>Northeast (NE)>Northwest (NW)>Southeast (SE)>Southwest (SW)>Up (U)>Down (D) Basic: >Inventory (I)>Hit Points (HP)>Look (L)>Wait>Score>Hint>Examine>Take I won’t be posting any complex command examples here. The beauty of the game is that the commands are limitless. Remember, your commands will be interpreted by a sentient being rather than a computer. So use your imagination, be creative, and type anything you can think of. When playing, please try to type this prompt (>) before a command. This is so we can have out of character (OOC) talk as well. This thread shouldn’t be just about the game. Please feel free to reminisce and discuss text adventures in general. I’m hoping we generate some nostalgia here. -Before we actually start, I’ll post a short example of an adventure just so people begin to get the gist. Thanks for reading, and don’t hesitate to comment with ideas and/or questions.
