Re: 2021 Resolution

I haven't run out of ideas or interest. Just haven't had sit down time. Maggie will get her hands on the alabaster jar, but getting out of the caves will be the challenge.

Re: 2021 Resolution

I hope to be able to continue writing episodes. I do have an idea for continuing this one. I think that I will choose the option where she cannot get past the guards. This will not be as bad for Maggie as it might first appear. I have some dialog to work out, so I don't know exactly how it will turn...

Re: 2021 Resolution

118065 and 118063 are episodes 12 and 13 for 2021. Resolution complete. In 118065, Maggie is more likely to try to exploit the chaos after the dragon's death to gain the trust of one of the factions in the cave, and then later gain the jar with that faction's help. The jar is difficult to find, and ...

Re: 2021 Resolution

11 of 12 done. I have not forgotten about this. I have two ideas for the Maggie/Belboz-Exotica story, and I may use both open choices. One choice leads to Maggie leaving the massage room, and searching the caves for the jar. The other choice is that Maggie stays behind and places herself into servic...

Re: Keep Safe!

Doing OK here. I have already gotten the first of two vaccinations for COVID-19. Will be getting the next one in a couple of weeks. Not looking forward to going back into the office, honestly.

Re: 2021 Resolution

Number 9 of 12 completed. 118026 is an episode for which the "add other option" button is really useful. There are more possibilities than the two options that I added. The title makes explicit what happened, although Fred does not know within the story. Fred has hit part of the dragon's fire-making...

Re: 2021 Resolution

And with 117969 I have written 8 of 12 that were in the resolution. A reader might fairly ask, what is the difference between the three options? All three are similar. I wondered what the nature of the dragon's skin was, and how Fred intended to use his sword to attack it. And whether Fred had enoug...

Re: 2021 Resolution

Accounting on the 2021 resolution: 6 episodes - 5 episodes in the "Fred and Maggie" story and one in the "Two Djinns" story as of February 19. Likely episode 7: I have been thinking about a follow-on to 117927 for a couple of days. I do not think that there will be a lot of action. It will be heavy ...

Re: 2021 Resolution

Number 6: I added an episode to the djinn thread (117920, extension 117926). Velus was part of the earlier episodes, appearing last as a dog cowering in the market at 6669.

Re: Keep Safe!

I haven't seen Lots post an episode in a while. I hope that he is OK.

Re: 2021 Resolution

I have written five of my ten episodes and it is only February. :) I think that there are good possibilities in this thread. Fred could be in combat with the dragon in the next episode or two and a decisive result would not end the story. There are two promising complications: the quest for the jar,...

Re: 2021 Resolution

No problems, Ib. I found a substitute for a torch. We would not want Fred to be eaten by a grue. (Zork reference, in case you are too young to remember text-based adventure games.) :) In 117885 it did not state that he threw away Belboz's receipt for the flamebane mail. So I figure that use of the r...

Re: 2021 Resolution

Thanks, JH. I should know better, but when I read about the "Khanate of the Golden Horde" in the history books, I have a vision of Tartars guarding a large pile of gold in a tent somewhere out on the steppes. I will do another pass to correct spelling and punctuation. I try to add enough detail wher...

Re: 2021 Resolution

I see that there are some new episodes. Good ideas. I should be able to work with these. I will note that one of the parent episodes, 884, has two links. I started from episode 2 and worked my way through episode 539, Aquaduct. In this branch, Fred descends the ladder, visits the wine cellar, and fo...
