THE TEXT ADVENTURE MEME


You are in a Livejournal community on the internet. There are a number of posts on it, each of them containing a number of non-canonical situations affectionately known as "memes." Some of them even have fancy pictures attached to them. You wonder if this one just isn't trying hard enough.

There is a post here.

Which one?

"Congratulations! You are now the player avatar of a text adventure! You have full control of the setting and the environment! The only problem is, you have no control over your own actions! But don't worry, the people responding to you have all bought copies of it and are more than willing to guide you in the right direction! We hope."

> TRANSLATE INTO CLEARER LANGUAGE


So here's the deal: You devise a setting for a text adventure for your character to star in; the people replying to you get to input commands as to what your character actually DOES, and you show the results of said action. And possibly some snark in the process.

Have fun!

Charles Xavier | Xmen: First Class

WESTCHESTER, NEW YORK: XAVIER MANSION

You are seated in the library in one of the large chairs, perusing a large book. The History and Development of Human Genetics. Fascinating stuff, you could read this all day if you had to but there's other things to be taken care of today. You do have a house full of young mutants that need training after all.

The CHESS BOARD is in front of you. To your left is a DECANTER of scotch on the sideboard table.

Exits are EAST to the kitchen, WEST to the foyer, and SOUTH through the french doors leading outside.

What do you want to do?

>call an emergency staff meeting regarding student performance.

You send a telepathic message to all staff members in the mansion that there is going to be an emergency meeting to discuss student performance.

MOIRA says she'll be there. ERIK is annoyed at having his mind read but agrees to show up. HANK is startled at first by the voice in his head but agrees to come too. And....that's really all the "staff" there is at the moment.

Everyone wants to know where the STAFF MEETING will be held.

>BLOW UP EVERYONE'S MIND

I'm sorry but your list of abilities do not include "blow up everyone's mind".

Exits are EAST to the kitchen, WEST to the foyer, and SOUTH through the french doors leading outside.

What do you want to do?

>fuck this game then

>QUIT

>Go to the kitchen.

You put down your book, deciding to finish it later and get up to walk towards the kitchen.

XAVIER MANSION: KITCHEN

The kitchen is large and spacious for a mansion this size. Nearby, SEAN is having a large triple decker sandwich. There is a PILE OF DIRTY DISHES in the sink.

Exits are WEST to the living room, EAST to the hallway.

>Greet Sean

SEAN waves a hello at your greeting, unable to talk around the food in his mouth. You remind him about actually chewing before swallowing.

Exits are WEST to the living room, EAST to the hallway.

>Go west

>Turn that book into a drinking game to finish off the scotch.

It's kind of early to be drinking that much....oh, it must be late somewhere. You pour yourself a glass of scotch and start picking out what words to take a drink on. "Gene" and "evolve" seem to be the more prevalent words so we'll start with those.

After a half hour, the entire DECANTER is empty and you can't even read the page anymore. You also do feel very irresponsible about drinking all of that in one go when you were supposed to be training young mutants today.

What do you want to do?

>Go EAST to the kitchen.

Somehow you manage to make it to your feet and to the kitchen without falling down.

XAVIER MANSION: KITCHEN

The kitchen is large and spacious for a mansion this size. Nearby, ALEX is having a large triple decker sandwich. At least you think it's ALEX, right now he looks like a blurry mess thanks to the scotch you have consumed. ALEX gives you a confused look as you try to stay upright.
