# 1 Ye Olde Text-Based RPG...
12-20-2010, 07:39 AM
You wake up in a padded room, the lights are out and the effects of a powerful sedative are wearing off, you feel slightly off balance as you begin to stand. After your eyes adjust to the poor lighting you notice your cell door is standing wide open, you cautiously move toward the threshold and peer into the hallway beyond..

The hallway is dark in either direction, from deeper inside the facility you hear the sound of foot steps, you begin to panic..

Options:
< W > Go West
< E > Go East
< I > Inventory
< D > Derail clever text-based RPG thread..

(Okay, the rules are simple... choose an option, type out what happens and leave 3-4 options for the next poster to choose from in order to continue the story)

Text-based RPGs are fun, but I never had the experience personally. I would watch my friends playing them and I couldn't keep up, I would fall asleep with boredom. I respect the evolution from that to this. They have that one easter egg in Call of Duty: Black Ops, the original Zork. I tried it, but I'm clueless as to what to do.

< B > Search for an alcoholic beverage to drown your sadness.

As you begin to walk away in search of a tasty berverage to drown your sorrows, you look back and shed a single tear for your precious and make a little pouting noise that seem quite pathetic. You really need a drink. Just then Sgt. Pepper steps in front of you and you take this moment to trip him face first into some mud. You stick your tounge out at him. The nostalgia reminds you of being young again. The others chuckle and you nod your head in acceptance.

Moving onward to the greater unknown (east:p), you are sure to find some alcohol in town.
The road was long and the journey not to boring as you took it upon yourself to torture Sgt. Pepper butt at every avenue of chance. This brought much relief from your current lose. Soon enough you reach the outskirts of.... a veritable BABE FEST!!! Your eyes light up like the sun. At this moment Sgt. Pepper approaches you and slams a bottle of kanar against your chest and walks off. You twist the cap off and take a VERY large pull from the fine bottle of kanar. "Not to much, its a long road and I must conserve this precious commodity." You put it away and make for the inner town.

:: Armor hort runs up to the party ::
I've finished studying NPCs! Look! I've learned to ride the shadows to move!

-disperses into a shadow, moves along the shadows of the terrain, and reemerges on the other side of the party-

...

-unfortunately, this has left the armor behind-

Wait, what happened? I AM UNBOUND! NOOOOOOOOoooooooooo!!!! <____>

-taps button on ghost trap and reenters it in shame-
