ClubFloyd Transcript:
Ollie Ollie Oxen Free by Carolyn VanEseltine
As played on ifMUD on December 1, 2013

The idea behind ClubFloyd is that each week at a pre-arranged time, a group of people meet online to cooperatively play a game of interactive fiction.

Below is a transcript of Ollie Ollie Oxen Free written by Carolyn VanEseltine. You can learn more about the game, including how to download it, by visiting IFDB.


WARNING! Below you will find a transcript of people playing this game, and it goes without saying that the transcript is full of spoilers. So, if you've never played this game, and think you might like to at some point, I do not recommend reading any further. Instead, you might want to return to the interactive fiction page.

#ClubFloyd Discussion



Jacqueline hollers, "ClubFloyd is playing Ollie Ollie Oxen Free beginning... pretty much now, if you'd like to join us!" Jacqueline asks, "Okay, shall we?"
diggle says, "we shall"
Tigrita says, "indeed"
Nitku arrives, full of fun and funk.
Jacqueline says (to Floyd), "load sleepmask ollieollieoxenfree"

Floyd | Ollie Ollie Oxen Free includes a cueing system to help
Floyd | players out with complex systems such as conversation.  (These cues
Floyd | are not hints; they are only guidance to make gameplay easier.
Floyd | Leaving them on is recommended.)
Floyd |
Floyd | Would you like to keep the help cues on?  (y/n) >
diggle asks, "do we have any driver?" Jacqueline says, "I can drive for now."
DavidW says (to diggle), "Talk on channel, please."
diggle asks, "kk, so we give you suggestions to what to do if we want?"
diggle says (to dw), "nod I shall"
Jacqueline asks, "So, given that these aren't hints... do we want the help cues, or not?"
Tigrita asks, "What does driver mean?"
Jacqueline says, "I'm guessing we don't need them, but maybe they're game-specific."
Tigrita says, "i vote aye"
DavidW says, "I'm a bit unsure how much I should hold back at first, since I played some of this. I didn't manage to solve much."
Jacqueline says (to Tigrita), "They enter the commands on behalf of the group."
Jacqueline says (to DW), "I think just only try stuff you don't know about."
diggle says (to jack), "I would say keep the help queues open, but thats your choice"
Jacqueline says (to DW), "But it would be useful to have your opinion on whether or not we should leave the help cues on."
DavidW asks, "I think leave them on. I think they can be turned off later?"
Jacqueline says, "Okay."
Jacqueline says (to Floyd), "y"

Floyd | The staticky voice on the PA was wrong - you should have sheltered in
Floyd | place.  Moving your students wasn't easy, even before Jude yelled "Mr.
Floyd | Bunny!", dropped Samir's hand, and went scrambling back down the
Floyd | hallway.  You slipped up and swore, but no one heard it in the chaos.
Floyd |
Floyd | Overhead, the inbound planes were unleashing chaos of their own.
Floyd | There were seals against airbornes in most of the installation, but
Floyd | not in the school.  Emily was ahead of you, so the toxin hit her
Floyd | first.  She doubled over retching and then fell down.  You inhaled to
Floyd | call out to your students, but then the toxin was in your lungs.
Floyd |
Floyd | Burning in your lungs.  Throwing up as if you would never stop.
Floyd | Children screaming, scattering.
Floyd |
Floyd | The ground shaking.  You wrenched your head up to see the wall
Floyd | collapse.  A wave of heat and light.  Wasn't the gas enough?  Why did
Floyd | they need incendiaries too?
Floyd |
Floyd | Adam must be up there somewhere, scrambling to respond.  As above, so
Floyd | below - unless he was puking his guts out too, unless he couldn't
Floyd | breathe either -
Floyd |
Floyd | It was a good time to pass out, so you did.

Floyd | 6/12N)
Floyd |
Floyd | North Hall
Floyd | This was the approved route to shelter, before the bombs hit and the
Floyd | ceiling collapsed.  Now, shards of plastic and glass jut from the
Floyd | rubble, and more than one corpse lies buried beneath the weight of
Floyd | stone.  Heavy debris lies half-propped upon long pieces of rebar,
Floyd | creating a hazardous barrier that blocks the way north.  The way south
Floyd | remains open.
Floyd |
Floyd | To the west, more debris blocks off the door to Avery Thomas's
Floyd | classroom.
Floyd |
Floyd | The air raid sirens have stopped, but fire alarms still flash and
Floyd | shrill through the wreckage.  It's not much of an improvement.
Floyd |
Floyd | You have to find your students.

diggle says, "woo inky's here"
Jacqueline clears the save counter. Jacqueline says (to diggle), "Well, he logged on, he's not in here."
DavidW says, "People may find it helpful to make a short list of the students' names as we learn them."
inky arrives, full of fun and funk. inky asks, "what which hunh?"
Tigrita says, "we just started, we're playing Olly Olly Oxen Free"
Jacqueline says (to DW), "Well, Avery Thomas sounds like a teacher, not a student, but okay."
DavidW says, "yes, Avery is a teacher."
Jacqueline says, "I will keep a teacher and a student list."
Jacqueline clears the save counter.
Jacqueline says (to Floyd), "x"

Floyd | > X ME
Floyd |
Floyd | You feel, unsurprisingly, like a building fell on you, and you're sure
Floyd | that your appearance matches the feeling.  Constant tremors run
Floyd | through your hands, and it's an effort just to stay standing.  But
Floyd | there doesn't seem to be any blood, and that's something.
Floyd |
Floyd | (You can also think about many things, such as THINK ABOUT
Floyd | yourself.)
Floyd |
Floyd | You are wearing a striped red tie, a rumpled white shirt, some pair of
Floyd | black slacks, and a gold wedding band.
Floyd |

diggle exclaims, "oh woo, brainpower!"
Jacqueline says, "heh. Your use of 'woo' and an exclamation point is kind of jarring given the game's content."
DavidW says, "I think that that 'THINK ABOUT' message is one of the cues that cues on does. It's not solving the puzzles for you. It just helps with syntax."
Jacqueline says, "And it's kind of looking like we're male, which is also jarring (at least to me)."
Jacqueline says (to Floyd), "think about me"

Floyd | >
Floyd | > THINK ABOUT ME
Floyd |
Floyd | You feel worse than you've ever felt, including the time when you were
Floyd | seventeen and three guys kicked the shit out of you just for existing.
Floyd | Maybe now hurts more because it's happening right now... but it's a
Floyd | bad sign.
Floyd |

Tigrita exclaims, "woo, death and destruction!"
DavidW says, "The PC is male, yes."
Jacqueline says (to Tigrita), "That's the spirit, or something."

Floyd | > THINK ABOUT AVERY
Floyd |
Floyd | The kids love Avery Thomas, but he doesn't deserve it.  He hates
Floyd | teaching elementary, and he mutters in the teacher's lounge about how
Floyd | kids are only worthwhile once they grow up.  He probably daydreams
Floyd | about beaning a kid with a chunk of rock quartz someday.

Jacqueline says, "Actually, could someone else drive for a few? Breakfast just arrived."
Nitku says, "I like "some pair or black slacks""
diggle asks, "can I?"
Nitku says, "like he just realized he's wearing them and doesn't know where they came from"
Jacqueline says (to diggle), "Go slowly, but sure."
DavidW says (to diggle), "If you drive slow, yes."
diggle says, "k"
Jacqueline says (to diggle), "Main thing is, get most people to agree before you switch rooms."

Floyd |
Floyd | It's a thin gold band, a little scratched, unobtrusive.  And very
Floyd | important.

Floyd |
Floyd | You wanted a custom ring, but Adam talked you out of it.  "We'll get
Floyd | something simple, classic," he said.  Unspoken: something it would be
Floyd | safer to wear.

Floyd |
Floyd | You take a closer look at the pile of debris, but what you see only

Floyd |
Floyd | There's no room for doubt: the closest body is Emily Wagner.  Her

Floyd | her skirt, and you recognize the strappy sandals she was wearing.

diggle grins.
diggle asks, "shall we go on to west?"
djfletch says, "yes, if the debris is too dangerous to move then probably just try moving somewhere"
DavidW says, "I'll draw a map. iirc, we're at the northeast corner of the geography."
Jacqueline says (to diggle), "West works for me."
diggle nods.

Floyd |
Floyd | You try to stand up, but misjudge your own weakness and almost fall

Floyd |
Floyd | You remain still for a moment, breath burning in your throat, and wait
Floyd | for the strength to try again.

Floyd |
Floyd | You grit your teeth and get successfully to your feet.  You've never
Floyd | been so proud of just standing before... well, maybe after that fourth
Floyd | J├Ąger Bomb at Nellie's.  But it feels like college was about a hundred
Floyd | years ago.

Floyd |
Floyd | Seeing the school in ruins makes you feel very fragile.  You didn't
Floyd | love the place - the architecture was weird, and the administration
Floyd | was frustrating, and the mural at the hallway junction was seriously
Floyd | ugly.  But now it's been destroyed, and perversely, you feel
Floyd | abandoned.

Floyd | Emily Wagner was in your classroom when the warning siren went off.
Floyd | She was helping to get your kids out when the bombs hit.  She didn't

DavidW says, "but yeah, TNT is traditional for removing rubble."

Floyd | Fire alarm lights strobe across a painfully cheerful mural on the east
Floyd | wall, positioned exactly opposite the west-facing hallway.  The
Floyd | classrooms and the gymnasium are off to the west, the science and

Floyd | you can see from here that no part of the building went unravaged.  At
Floyd | least it looks like most of the kids made it out.
Floyd |
Floyd | The fire alarms flash and shrill monotonously.

Floyd | One day, he's helping Dylan cement his reign of terror, and the next,

Floyd | Ollie Ollie Oxen Free is an interactive fiction game by
Floyd | Carolyn VanEseltine.
Floyd |
Floyd | In this game, you take the role of a story's protagonist.  The
Floyd | computer provides the game world; it will inform you about what you
Floyd | can see, hear, smell, feel, and sense in any other ways.  You can
Floyd | respond to the game's environment by typing commands into the parser.
Floyd | For example, you can:
Floyd |
Floyd | - move around (WEST, GO DOOR, STAND ON TABLE, etc.)
Floyd | - investigate yourself (INVENTORY, EXAMINE ME, etc.)
Floyd | - investigate your environment (EXAMINE DEBRIS, LOOK ON DESK, LISTEN,
Floyd | SMELL, etc.)
Floyd | - interact with objects (GET PAPER CLIP, OPEN DRAWER, PUSH TABLE,
Floyd | etc.)
Floyd | - ask people to perform tasks for you (example: TYRONE, OPEN DOOR)
Floyd | - and perform important out-of-game functions (SAVE, UNDO, RESTORE,
Floyd | HELP, etc.)
Floyd |
Floyd | The OOxF command cueing system will attempt to provide timely,
Floyd | non-spoilery indicators about game syntax as you play.  Other commands
Floyd | that may be of use:
Floyd |
Floyd | ABOUT - Provides more information about the history and creation of
Floyd | the game.
Floyd | VERBS - Provides a list of verbs recognized by this game.
Floyd | HINT - If you're having trouble, type HINT to get a hint.
Floyd | WALKTHROUGH - In extremis, you can use WALKTHROUGH to get a solution
Floyd | for your specific situation.
Floyd |
Floyd | For more detailed guidance about how to play interactive fiction
Floyd | games, please consult the Brass Lantern Beginners' Resources,
Floyd | available at [LINK]

Floyd | Supply Closet
Floyd | This is the only supply closet on the hall, but at least it's large.
Floyd | Boxes line the right wall beneath a row of empty coat hooks.  On the
Floyd | left wall, files and stacks of paper cover the lower shelves, and a
Floyd | few odds and ends have been tucked away on the highest shelf.
