Hooray! We survived!

I was expecting more from the conclusion, but oh well.

Not every adventure has a grand finale, especially not the potential first one in a suite Wink

I kind of understood that we would end in a cave for the last part, as you said in the beginning, but I guess it was onnly from the cave side.

Well the last few set of choices seemed to have more narrative weight placed upon one choice or the other imo. Very cool little adventure though and I definately would like to explore more of it. In the mean time I have an itch for some day trading.

Yeah, you guys interpreted the situation a bit differently than I did when writing it I think. Looking back, the quest given should have been made weaker and I should've included some stronger reasoning for visiting the captains quarter. Oh well, the HTML version may be a bit improved.

Glad you liked it. I write these mostly to amuse the forum denizens, so it's good if they fulfil their purpose. The poll runs out in about a week, so I guess after that we see what happens next. If we don't return to this world now though, there may be some time until the next chance, I've got other things queuing up.

And the poll has run its course. Next up is a Mycon adventure that will run only on the SCDB. Feel free to pzrticipate, I'll bump this thread as a FYI once it gets going.

On your conclusion post, you seem to be confused about the gender of the Syreen prisoner. Smiley

Why only on the SCDB ? Just curious. btw I hope this decision to only run it on one board didn't have anything to do with my one chiding comment opon their demise in the last adventure. I'll admit I do sometimes have a competitive spirt even though the two games weren't meant to be competitive and some people were participating in both.

Here's a far off, future idea for you. Pit SCDB against the UQM board. One side is the Druuge the other the Melnorme. The classic good vs. evil. He who has the most credits at the end of the financial adventure wins. Each board could have a private sub forum only available to his or her side. Or we could find a place for private conversation. The adventure would unfold in public market(s) information available to all. The private place would be used to discuss investment strategy and aquisitions. Perhaps each side starts with a budget and can enter auction bids towards quest items to try to turn a profit with them.

Hey RTyp06! The reason for running it only on one board was detailed in the poll question over on the SCDB, but I guess I could elaborate on it here as well. Basically, the Melnorme game would have consisted of a number of events that would appear randomly. That stuff can be pre-written and thus it's easy to run it on two boards at the same time, much like the Pkunk and Shofixti adventures.

The Mycon adventure was originally supposed to work like that too, but building a religion is tricky work and I soon ran into a too large branching tree. So there will be suggested options, but also the ability to vote for whatever takes ones fancy. That means I write as we go along, which in turns means I can't do it on two forums at once.

As for why on the SCDB, there are really two reasons. First off, I've been running BEL as an UQM exclusive for quite some time, whereas the last time the SCDB had an exclusive was ABKS. So they're due. Secondly, the SCDB is much livelier than this place nowadays and I know there are a lot of people on there who are good at participating in this kind of open adventures, whereas last time someone tried to start something here it fizzled out and died.

There will still be double adventures in the future, but I've got a lot on my plate. Anyone else who wants to step up and write one is welcome to do so.

Gotcha. I didn't read the poll description beyond my poll choice other than a quick skim. I didn't even think the mycon story would be chosen. Should be interesting none the less.

Your logic is solid.

I may have to clean up my own plate a little bit and see what I can come up with. Thanx.

Even more so now apparently. Death 999 tried to recruit peopel for a game here. Alvarin tried twice. Dabir is trying now. Most of the people playing BEL are more active on the SCDB. It seems UQMFers just don't like playing forum games. Such a pity
