WELCOME TO ACTION CASTLE!

>EXAMINE PARSLEY GAMES

A parsley game is a text adventure that was popular in the 1980's. The player would type instructions on their keyboard (such as >EXAMINE SHOES or >GO WEST) which in turn would get responses from the computer describing the result. There was also a SCORE that was kept to chart the players progress and achievements. It is every players dream to get a perfect score. Keep in mind that parser games were notorious for killing players suddenly, so it is always a good idea to SAVE your game. The game continues until it is won or until all the players get frustrated and quit.

>HOW TO PLAY

Every time a game begins with the parser describing your environment and whether there are any items nearby that you can interact with. It will also tell you what exits are available. Which means that if you post a command, you must wait until another player posts a command in order to post a command again. Multiple players must go one post at a time, but commentary is allowed. All commands must be entered into the thread with > in front. Any commands that are too complex or nonsensical will result in SYNTAX ERROR.

BASIC COMMANDS - Directions (go, exit, leave, east, west, etc.), Sensory (look, examine, take, drop, etc.), Interaction (talk, use, kill, light, open, wear, give, etc.)

SPECIAL COMMANDS: Inventory, Save, Restore, Score, Quit, Kill Me.

>SHOW EXAMPLE

You are in a library. There is a DESK here. Exits are SOUTH, EAST, and NORTH.

(Sally) >EXAMINE DESK

There is an ANCIENT TOME here.

(Dave) >SAVE GAME

You have saved your game. Please use the command RESTORE to return to this point if a fatal mistake is made.

(Bobtheminion) >EXAMINE TOME

What? There is no TOME here.

(Sally) >EXAMINE ANCIENT TOME (omg seriously? we have to be that specific?)

You flip through the pages and learn a powerful RITUAL. It requires ASH, a MOUSE, and FROG WARTS.

(Dave) >GO SOUTH (please god, let there be no monsters in this next room)

You are in a hallway. There is a HUNGRY ZOMBIE here! There is a PIPE WRENCH here. Exits are SOUTH.

(Bobtheminion) >EAT PIPE WRENCH (lol)

You chip a tooth on the pipe wrench as you nibble on it. You are distracted by the immense pain and the zombie devours you.

You have died. Thank you for playing!
Your score is 25/120! Would you like to RESTORE GAME? Y/N


(Sally) >Y
(Dave) (srsly guys? TWO ROOMS!! We only got through two rooms!)
(Bobtheminion) (83)
(Dave) >RESTORE GAME (ugh)


>HELP

Please direct all questions you may have (out of character) to Lord of the Forest.

SYNTAX ERROR

((Every player enters one command per post. No player can enter a command twice in a row. Which means that if you post a command, you must wait until another player posts a command in order to post a valid command again.))
