Text Adventure!
Kimor
This has always been one of my favorite forum games. It's played a lot like the old text adventure games on the computer! I'll give a situation, you type in your answer, and I'll act as the game. Expect lots of death and silliness.


You awake in a small prison cell made from large, gray stones. There is a small WINDOW, which is barred. A pile of HAY sits in one corner of the room. A CHAMBERPOT is in another corner. A thick wooden DOOR prevents your escape. There is a window on the door, also barred.

Inventory:
Tattered brown tunic

DISCARD DIGNITY
 
Kimor
You drop your dignity. You didn't have much of it to begin with.

INVENTORY:

macgyver the fuck out of your tunic in such a way. That you pick the lock of the door.

(Had to say it....)
 
Kimor
You take off your tunic and attempt to twist it in such a way as to create a lockpick. Your attempt fails and your tunic is ruined. You are now as naked as the day you were born. Perhaps that's what you wanted? Perhaps you enjoy strutting your stuff, running around castles with your unmentionables flopping about? Ah, well, as a text adventure game, I am not one to judge.

INSPECT CHAMBERPOT
 
Kimor
You inspect the chamberpot. It contains a mushy brown substance. Best not to ask any more about that.

Inspect hay pile
 
Kimor
You inspect the hay pile. Shockingly enough, you find a needle! Funny, you would have thought that would have been harder to find in there.

You inspect the door. It is made of stout oak, which is reinforced by iron bars. These iron bars are bolted to the stone of the castle, which is bolted to the floor of the castle, which is bolted to the planet Earth which is bolted to its orbit in the universe. Pretty strong stuff. There is a doorknob and keyhole, but no window.
 
Kimor
Success! With a click, the door swings open.

NORTH
 
Lance Drake
No no no, not good enough.

Perform streaking run in the northward direction Grin
 
Kimor
Either command works. You head NORTH, walking into a dark, dank hallway lined with wooden cell doors and torches. The other doors all appear locked. A guard whistles to himself as he lazily saunters EAST. To the WEST lies a set of stairs.

Best to avoid the gaurd. I don't think he'll take kindly to a naked prisoner running around.

Head WEST and inspect the stairs. being as sneaky and silent as possible.
 
Kimor
You walk WEST and examine the stairs. They are a spiral staircase, with stairs going either UP or DOWN. Dust covers the upward pathway, but the one below appears to be well-traveled.

Your attempts to be sneaky and silent cause you to bump a torch, which clatters against one of the iron holders. Luckily, the guard doesn't seem to notice.

Take the torch since the guard seems innatentive, and go up the dusty stairs. Maybe there's something good up there?
 
Kimor
You walk up the dusty stairs, using the torch to guide your way. You come to a thick wooden door. There is a window on it. The stairs continue upwards.

Peer through the window in the door, using the torch to see what's inside
 
Kimor
This being a small window, you can only put one thing up to it at a time. Foolishly, you try to put both your face and the torch up to it together. You burn your face and drop the torch as you cry out in pain. The torch extinguishes and lies on the ground. Rather silly of you, anyway - there's a window in the room and you can see perfectly well inside. There is a brown fox chained to a bed by his leg. He is wearing a simple gray robe.
