Corsac's note: Unfortunately, I couldn't find the earliest posts of this thread on Google, so the game is joined in progress. Date: 2 Apr 2001 (Rob wrote): GET PENGUIN You pick up the penguin. It is cold and frosty. Gillian Anderson's head enters from the south. (Ol' Dog continues): Gillian Anderson's head is wearing an orange hat with a green hat band, trimmed with maroon and purple chicken feathers. Your torch goes out. It is very dark here; you may be eaten by a grue. SPLIM GRUE Your Splimming Ring is missing; the grue advances... (Rob~ continues): EAT GRUE You do not have a grue. TAKE GRUE You embrace the grue and, tilting it backwards slightly, kiss it passionately. The grue pulls you closer as it eases itself to the ground... I DIDN'T MEAN LIKE THAT Oh, sorry... You pick up the grue. You now have: 1 penguin (cold and frosty) 1 grue (slightly aroused and confused) 1 package Cookie Monster brand cookies Elvis 1 Splimming Ring (missing) LOOK AT ELVIS You see nothing interesting about The King. It is very dark here. You may be eaten by a grue. I HAVE THE GRUE Oh, yeah. Um, It is very dark here, you may eat the grue. EAT GRUE Um, which way do you mean that? LITERALLY Alright, then. You attempt to eat the grue, only to find that Elvis has already eaten the grue, as well as the Cookie Monster brand cookies. You're starting to have suspicions about what happened to the Splimming Ring. (Corsac continues): EAT ELVIS Elvis is too big to eat. Elvis is attempting to eat the penguin. TAKE PENGUIN You and Elvis are wrestling over the penguin. Elvis weighs more than you do; he is winning. HIT ELVIS No effect. Elvis has eaten the penguin. RUN AWAY You are faster than Elvis. You soon leave him behind. It is very dark here. You may be eaten by Gillian Anderson. (Danoot continues): FEEL TEMPTED You have already done this. SMACK SELF NOT LIKE THAT! You hit yourself in the head. It is very dark here. You have a headache. Gillian Anderson's head enters from the west. It is followed by Elvis. (Rob~ continues): FEED GILLIAN ANDERSON'S HEAD TO ELVIS You do not have that. TAKE GILLIAN ANDERSON'S HEAD Literally or figuratively? FIGURATIVELY But, she's just a head... TAKE GILLIAN ANDERSON'S HEAD Pervert. TAKE GILLIAN ANDERSON'S HEAD No. BEAT DUNGEON-MASTER SENSELESS Your hostility will not help your situation. Elvis approaches with a hungry look in his eyes. FEED GILLIAN ANDERSON'S HEAD TO ELVIS You never took her in the literal sense. ARRGH! Your cry frightens Elvis. He waddles off with Gillian Anderson's head. A weble enters from the north.
