...but man does it get confusing if you get drunk and read it backwards without looking at the thread title.

I'm glad you made this thread. I didn't want to break character in the actual text adventure thread.

I love that fucking thread SO much. I hope Johnny Landmine NEVER SLEEPS and just waits to answer it.

Also, I'm sad no one laughed at me "Look great." haha

I feel like we need metathreads more often! Some things deserve commentary or discussion, but to include them in the thread itself would interfere with it.

Gavin, I imagine every command you enter as being prefaced with "Look great." The system just couldn't process you wanting to look great (as always) and then immediately look great again. Simple machine logic is not sufficient to comprehend that much pretty on one stack of man.

I thought that was funny! "I don't understand that." is just how I show it.

I'm just kind of glad people are playing along! I will say that there is a plan, there is a map and there is a way to win.

I mean, I'm not "just kind of glad;" I'm quite glad! Weird. I mean to say the simple fact that people picked up what I dropped at all delights me.

You are probably right!

A few quick stuff to cover:

- If multiple people post actions before I respond to any of them, I'll parse them all in the order they were posted. For all intents and purposes, all people posting actions are regarded as the same "person." Please refrain from instantly, deliberately undoing something that another poster is trying to do unless, of course, it's funny.

- Since I'm sure nobody wants me to go so far as to mimic a typical text adventure save system, in the unlikely event of death, I'll grant do-overs from a recent point that seems reasonable.

I would say peeps have been doing an awesome job of not posting until you have responded. I hope it continues. It's really fun that way! Otherwise, we could just start abusing it and go:

Stop living your life and come back to text adventure.
PS: I'm seriously loving this so much that I want someone to make an app, just so johnny can check ONLY this thread wherever he is.

Full disclosure: I'm on my way out for the weekend. I'll post through my phone when I get a chance but I'll probably be a little busy being cool and touching boobs and stuff so please be patient.

Note that I assumed y'all wanted the nretnal turned off and switched it off for you this time. In the future I may not be so lenient.

Also, sorry for the "dearth" gag, Gavin - I just remembered that I actually first learned the word "dearth" from some text adventure that included a dearth as an "object" just to pick on people who don't know what it means. Text adventures are dicks.

All day I was afraid that my careless simultaneous activation of the lantern and the nretnal had wiped out OB and might take the rest of the Internet with it
