A Text Story

Post by Anuke » September 23rd, 2015, 6:08 pm

A text adventure thread.

You tell the character what to do, I tell you what happens next. e.x "walk forward", "examine rock", "throw stick".

Inaproppriate actions will be ignored!


-------------------------------------------------------------------

You are standing in an empty room. The walls are completely blank. There are no doors, windows, or distinguishing features. You are the only thing in the room.

As you punch the wall, you see that it is made of paper.

You don't have to do a specific command. Just say "examine wall" or "look around" or something.

As you look through the hole in the wall, you see the room you are in, and yourself with your back to you, looking through the hole.
It is a disorienting experience.

You end up in the same room. You can see yourself walk through the hole.

You are wearing simple white cotton pants and a shirt. You have a knife.

The floor doesn't seem to be rough or hard, but you can't seem to be able to break it with your hands or feet.

What's in the room? Besides the magic N-Dimensional Hole.

You examine the room. Behind and in front of you, you see the hole with infinite rooms.

The ceiling is completely blank and too high for you to reach.

The walls on the left and right are completely blank.

The knife goes through the hole. It flies around, passes right through you, and sinks up to the hilt into the floor, as if the floor were made of butter.

nah, this story is going to last at least 2 days :P

You cut a random shape in the floor. It falls away, leaving a strange sort of entrance in the floor.

Instead of seeing the sides of the hole you just made, you see complete blackness.

Do you jump in?

As soon as your head touches the darkness, you black out.

An indefinite amount of time later, you awake on a blue, flat, endless field. The sky is pure white.

There is some sort of slot in the ground nearby.

Around you are scattered various cubes and triangular prisms.

Attempt to put your left butt cheek in the slot.
