EDIT: A quick note!!! You can find this adventure here, or at Adventure or MSPA. I am willing to add it to other places at request. Just be aware that if suggestions are taken that aren't posted here, they're from THERE. There are no suggestions that I make up.

BEGIN
Image

A YOUNG MAN stands in a train restroom. He has just finished business and is now loitering to AVOID going back to the rest of the TRAIN.

This young man has a very definite name. Unfortunately, I don’t know what it is! That is up to you.

What is his name?


Enter name.
Image

Yes! That is his name. ROBERT PAULSEN. That is also your name, because you and him are one and the same. For now.

You are SIXTEEN YEARS OLD and you have been for some time. Today, July 9, 2071, is SPECIAL for other reasons. You’re moving! You used to live. . . Well, you’re not sure. No one taught you GEOGRAPHY. You’re also not sure where you’re going, but you’ve been traveling for a DAY now, so it’s awfully far from home.

Now you’re hiding in here, mostly because you’re tired of hanging out with your DAD. He’s a great guy and all, but he’s getting on your nerves! You and him are just feeling cramped lately.

Of course, you’re gonna get bored just STANDING here. What on Earth are you going to do now?

Drink deep from the toilet of life. Look for a window.

You guys are disgusting, the right thing to do is obviously washing your hands, you've just been to the bathroom, damn it! That's basic hygiene.

You know better than that! Level 1 Personnel may not use EMERGENCY FIREARMS except in the case of a declared emergency! If you even touched that thing dozens of alarms would go off and the train would be forced to stop. And then your dad would KILL you. Honestly, what was the point of sending you to BOOT CAMP when you were seven if you won't pay attention to your training?!


Robert: Drink deep from the toilet of life.
Image

Feeling metaphorical, huh? Yeah. Your LIFE kind of is in the shitter. What do you expect though, when your MOTHER ABANDONED YOUR FAMILY years ago and you've never seen the sun? You know that there once were normal TEENAGE THINGS to do; idle REBELLION and idiotic DARES. You were born too late for all of that though. The most rebellion you ever got out of life was when you painted CHINESE CHARACTERS on all your shirts. God that really pissed everyone at Base-ND off. You don't see what the big deal is though. They live in AFRICA or something and that's probably really far away. What are they gonna do? Fight the ALIENS and your side (whoever that is)? That's not gonna go well.

You're not really gonna drink from the TOILET BOWL though. You don't know where that water's been.


Robert: Open container on wall.
Image

It won't BUDGE. You probably need a KEY to open it, or at least an INVENTORY SYSTEM. Your DAD is borrowing yours to fit all your luggage. Besides, what would you do with FIRST AID? You've never been seriously hurt before in your life and you can't see that changing now.


Robert: Wash your hands. Don't wash your hands.
Image

Uhhhhh.... Oh god what do you do?!?!?!?!?!?!

[center]Robert: Wash some, but not all, hands.
Image

Actually, now that you see how GREEN it is, you are just going to sacrifice cleanliness forever. You didn't even know water came in other COLORS seriously what is this and why.


Robert: Reminisce about dead mother.
Image

She's not DEAD. She abandoned you and DAD to go be a ROBOTICS SCIENTIST in Australia. Or Europe. Or Asia. Or one of the other continents. One of those probably still EXISTS, and that is where she went. She hasn't written back in awhile.

Or ever. So maybe she could be DEAD. It is hard to keep track nowadays. A lot of people are DEAD.


Robert: Leave the woman's restroom.
Image

It's a UNISEX. But o--


Next.

Oh dear.

I'm confused. Do I just say what I want to happen next and you'll make it so?

I want to eat a Taco.

Take the leap of faith into the Light
ran1: Oh gosh this sentence gave me an internet boner. You're so tsundere.
Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!
And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.
Eva Yojimbo: You really are the Otaku equivalent of a Catholic and Jew rolled up into one giant dakimakura of guilt.
Gob Hobblin: Sanctimonious, subtly racist, vaguely misogynist, somehow says something while at the same time saying...nothing, really, at all....

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

SORT OF! For those of you who don't know how this works, you input suggestions that are relevant to the situation at hand, and I try to follow them as best I can! Think of the old video games like Zork, where you input commands like "go north", "get ye flask" and "what the fuck do you mean you don't understand the word slap who doesn't know that word you stupid computer?!". Except, since I'm not a computer, as long as you're using decent English I'll always know what you mean!

But by that same token, the more outlandish your suggestion, the less likely I am to really jump on it. You can't just tell Robert to NUKE CANADA; he doesn't have access to nukes (yet?) and Canada the NATION hasn't existed since the 2050s. He does know what TACOS are; TACO NIGHT was the best part of growing up when Robert was a kid. It helps to remember that right now, we are employing the CONCEIT that you are ROBERT. Later you can be others. Thus, I will say "You do this" instead of "Robert does this". Normally, giving ROBERT suggestions as to how to respond to the knocking would be the best way to get picked. Admittedly, it didn't work this time because I picked you, but that's just to explain everything!

So, you, Robert, want a TACO. No problem. You open the door, because if TACOS are anywhere, they are presumably not here. And then this girl walks in.

Next.

So let's open up your DISCUSSION DIRECTORY, one of the many MENU OPTIONS you have. You can open the MENU at any time by stating MENU, or if you know what SUBMENU you wish you can state that one specifically. The DISCUSSION DIRECTORY shows off who is talking, what's been said, and some BASIC CHOICES you have for dialogue. You are welcome to suggest your own moods or conversational topics, of course, so if nothing here strikes your fancy, give that a whirl! As a general rule, TEXT OPTIONS will be vague to allow for maximum user input and specification!

Also note your SOCIAL LINK. The number closer to you is how you feel about who you're talking to. The number closer to them is how they feel about you. ZERO is the default mood, and that's to be expected for this; you two just MET. The higher your SOCIAL LINK, the better things will go in conversations and the more BONUSES you will receive in other contexts. We'll discuss that more later. This is only the tutorial.

So, how are you going to interact with this person, if at all? You are also, after all, welcome to just LEAVE.

POLITELY find a way out of the conversation. I don't trust her.
