Alchemy II: The Hangover

Post by Questman »

Alchemy II: The Hangover is in beta on bbs.elwynor.com.

THE BACK STORY...

"Hey, you're (hiccup)... Kyrr... err... Kyrr... err... raan... nan.. aah..
ummm... (hiccup)... the one with all those funky temples and stuff...", you
barely mumble, your head pounding and your vision somewhat blurred.

"Kyrannalussi, Goddess of Peyennuu, Lady of Virtues, Defender of Dreams, Queen
of Fantasy, The Eternal Pegasus, Keeper of Legends and Lore, The Grand
Enchantress, Guide of Souls, Ruler of Hearts, Figment of Imagination, Chief
Accountant of Olympus, Surgeon General, Jedi Master, Secretary of State, Zen
Master Ninja, Bachelor of Science: Comp. Science major, from Harvard, Maytag
Repair Woman, and author of MY LIFE AS A GODDESS, to you Mr. User!"

For some unknown reason you find this quite funny and start to giggle to
yourself. With great inebriated enthusiasm, you reply, "(hiccup) Oh..."

She frowns at you, not amused. "You drank one too many potions, became
completely drunk, cursed out several of my clerics, and tried to have sexual
intercourse with a bar stool -- you're an utter disgrace to the realm of
fantasy! You should be banished to reality for your horrendous misbehavior.
However, hmmm, I believe I've got a more appropriate fate to serve as your
punishment... and also teach you a few things, you mortal fool."

Something about her tone of voice fills you with a foreboding feeling of
impending doom, but nonetheless your "high" sense of humor just can't resist
the smart-aleck reply, "It must be that time of the month for you, huh?" You
grin -- not a particularly wise choice of actions.

"Why you, audacious fool!", she bellows -- in a rather deep voice for a Lady
of Virtue. "Alright, you think you're so smart? Well, you're going to need
all your wit and 'humor' to survive the sentence I'm going to give you! You
are doomed to forever walk the land of Peyennuu until you find the truth of
life within yourself!"

"Hmmm... (hiccup). How about what's behind curtain number two instead?".

"An eternity of fire and brimstone, your flesh painfully rotting away, maggots
and snakes crawling through your body, and icepicks being shoved under your
toenails." She smiles at you sweetly.

After a moment's thought, you reply, "I'll think I'll take that quest to find
the truth of life instead..."

WHAT IS ALCHEMY II: THE HANGOVER?

ALCHEMY II takes place in the swords-and-sorcery fantasy world of Peyennuu,
the mythical land which was the setting for QUEST FOR MAGIC and QUEST OF THE
ALCHEMISTS, two previous Major BBS/Worldgroup multi-user games. However,
unlike its predecessors, ALCHEMY II is much more of a satirical comedy than a
"serious" quest. Although not a "simple" game, by all means, it should be
taken quite lightheartedly and with a sense of humor... as you search for the
"truth of life".

GAMEPLAY

ALCHEMY II is an on-line RPG (Role-Playing Game), where you, and up to 254
other users, can take on the "role" of an imaginary character within the
context of the fantasy world of ALCHEMY II. It is similiar in nature to the
popular TSR, Inc. game of "Dungeons & Dragons", except the computer acts as an
"automated Dungeon Master". Game play is similiar to that of Zork, or any
other text adventure, but with a key difference -- many people can
simultaneously be interacting, in real-time, in the same simulated universe.

My prayers to Kyrannalussi were, at last, answered.
Amen.

...The Stinx suddenly puts its clawed paw in front of you and says, "You
must answer this riddle before you may pass...

Lay geso beyou tea,
Buht hirr dersbe wa aire;
Watism aye nay mme?
>answer test12
...The Stinx looks sadly at you and says, "No, that is the wrong answer. I'm
sorry, but now you must die..."

Everything goes black! You feel yourself being swooped away by nasty
creatures whom luckily you can't see. There is a surge of pain, and then
all of a sudden...
