ClubFloyd Transcript:
Captain Verdeterre's Plunder by Ryan Veeder
As played on ifMUD on December 8, 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 Captain Verdeterre's Plunder written by Ryan Veeder. Captain Verdeterre's Plunder was released as part of the 2013 Interactive Fiction Competition, in which it took fourth place. 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, "Hello, everyone! In about ten minutes (top of the hour) ClubFloyd will be playing Ryan Veeder's IF Comp game, Captain Verdeterre's Plunder!"
Gerynar arrives, full of fun and funk.
Touchy arrives, full of fun and funk. Touchy says, "Evening."
marshal_tenner_winter arrives, full of neither funk nor fun. Jacqueline says, "Morning."
Gerynar says, "Afternoon-ish"
jmac arrives, full of fun and funk.
jmac says, "I've already played this, so I'm just gonna put out there that my high score at this game is $1012, as documented at [LINK]"
jmac says, "Feel free to play ifMUD versus jmac""
jmac exclaims, "Good luck with the plundering!"
jmac has had his fill of playing for now, and goes back to the Lounge.
marshal_tenner_winter goes home. Jacqueline says, "Heh. Okay, so the goal is to beat $1012, it would appear."
Touchy says, "Otherwise we have to yell at jmac for being a condescending ass."
DavidW says, "That's assuming we play that way."
Jacqueline says (to Touchy), "Precisely."
Jacqueline asks (of DW), "That way? Hm, have you played this as well?"
DavidW says, "I have played it, once. I did not attempt to optimize my score."
Jacqueline nods.
Jacqueline asks, "Okay, so who here as not played this?"
Jacqueline raises her hand.
Touchy says, "Me neither."
Jacqueline asks, "Gerynar?"
Gerynar says, "nope"
Gerynar asks, "um...what game?"
Jacqueline says, "heh"
Jacqueline says, "Sometimes it's good to know the question before you answer it."
Jacqueline says, "Captain Verdeterre's Plunder."
Gerynar says, "nope, haven't played it"
Jacqueline says, "Well, okay then. Let's do this thing."
Jacqueline says (to Floyd), "load sleepmask captainverdeterre"

Floyd | "All right," says Captain Verdeterre. "Let's round up everything

Jacqueline says, "But, I mean, I could if you all want."
Gerynar thinks it'd be nice, but he'll leave it up to the others

Floyd | A portrait of Captain Verdeterre, which held no value to anyone but
Floyd | Captain Verdeterre and was therefore impossible to sell...
Floyd | A Dutch peg doll which, after some modification and repainting, was
Floyd | sold as an "African fertility idol" for 36 dollars...
Floyd | An unremarkable but serviceable violin, sold for 50 dollars...
Floyd | A broken sextant, which cost 20 dollars to fix before being sold for
Floyd | 68 dollars, for a total profit of 48 dollars...
Floyd | A silver locket, sold to a lovesick and desperate young man for 15

Floyd | A silk pillow that Captain Verdeterre could not bear to part with, and

Floyd | A medallion of mysterious provenance, sold for 68 dollars...

DavidW says, "Some of it probably goes towards getting a new ship."
Jacqueline says, "So the skull, violin, sextant, and medallion are worth keeping, maybe."
Jacqueline says, "And we need to grab the strongbox."
Touchy says, "Alrighty...I say when we restart we skip the lower levels and explore the stuff we have seen the least of."
Jacqueline asks, "And... what else in the next playthrough?"
Jacqueline says, "Timing. Okay."
DavidW says, "anyway, that wasn't too different from my first playthrough, except I was smart enough to take the smelly lump."
Touchy asks, "I tried examining that. Did you just take it on a whim?"
Touchy exclaims, "Also SPOILERS, duh!"

inky says, "yeah"
Jacqueline says, "I guess that makes sense."
Jacqueline says, "Especially since jmac has laid down."
Jacqueline asks (of inky), "You up for driving?"
inky says, "though I assume there will be some thing where items X and Y are worth more if you pick up both"
inky says, "sure"
DavidW says, "I never got the strongbox open. I never got the hanky. I never got the dagger."
inky says, "I wasn't really paying attention the first time"
Jacqueline says (to inky), "Yeah, the strongbox and the key in this playthrough."
inky asks, "it seems like getting the strongbox open is v expensive since you would have to go up to the top and then back down again, right?"

DavidW asks, "the fid?"
Touchy says, "just guessing at straws"
inky says, "possibly when you go up to get the key from the captain's quarters, you continue up to the mast and shoot the gull to get the watch"
inky says, "or maybe if you drop the hardtack on the deck the seagull will come down"
Jacqueline says, "Yea"
Jacqueline says, "er, yeah"
inky asks, "I wasn't paying attention when you guys were working on the flag box -- what is the deal there?"

Floyd | Fore Hold
Floyd | This is the foremost section of the hold, the location of the giant
Floyd | hole that the reef tore in the ship's hull. Water is gushing in at an
Floyd | alarming rate.
Floyd |
Floyd | The rest of the hold (and the stairs to the decks above) is aft.
Floyd |
Floyd | "All right," says Captain Verdeterre. "Let's round up everything
Floyd | that's worth anything and put it in that bag." He indicates a nearby
Floyd | sack, which you pick up.
Floyd |
Floyd | A perturbed-looking gorilla skull hangs from a hook on the wall.
Floyd |
Floyd | In one corner of the room is a pewter goblet.
Floyd |

Floyd |
Floyd | "That's the Russian flag," Verdeterre explains. "You're holding it
Floyd | upside down."
Floyd |
Floyd | It's just a Russian flag anyway, so you toss it. The next flag in the

Floyd | twisted in pain.
Floyd |
Floyd | "Hey, that's the Martyrdom of Saint Incertus!" says Verdeterre. "He's
Floyd | the patron saint of the pursued, I think. Too bad he's not the patron
Floyd | saint of shipwrecks. Better take it along."
Floyd |
Floyd | You fold it up carefully. "Why did they martyr him?" you ask.
Floyd |
Floyd | "Well, between the Human Catholic Church and the Rat Catholic Church
Floyd | there are some differences in the rules—such as, according to the
Floyd | human church, you're not allowed to declare yourself a saint. It's
Floyd | considered presumptuous. But we did get a tapestry out of it."
Floyd |
Floyd | You stuff the tapestry of Saint Incertus into the sack.

Floyd |
Floyd | You fold it up carefully. "Why did they martyr him?" you ask.
Floyd |
Floyd | "Well, between the Human Catholic Church and the Rat Catholic Church
Floyd | there are some differences in the rules—such as, according to the

Jacqueline says (to DW), "It is not a puzzle. You have a random 1 in 18 chance of pulling it out."
DavidW says, "ugh"
Jacqueline says, "So you have to hard core take/undo/take/undo until you get it."
Jacqueline says, "It's quite annoying. Ryan is aware of this."
DavidW asks, "Can the shell be blown to summon a whale or something?"
DavidW asks, "Or 'listen to shell'?"
Jacqueline says, "Hm, I don't think of a nautilus shell that way, but we should definitely try that when we hit that room."
Touchy says, "I tried breaking it and listenting to it."
Touchy says, "I'm not sure what else."
Jacqueline asks (of Touchy), "Did you hear anything?"
Touchy says, "No."
Touchy says, "But then again..we're already at sea."
olethros says it takes the safety of donkeys "very seriously" DavidW says, "I don't remember what a nautilus shell is like."

Roger has disconnected. Jacqueline makes a note for later.

Jacqueline says, "Which I feel like we can do."
Touchy asks, "bug?"
Touchy says, "I told you you cannot do the strongbox..."
Jacqueline says, "Yeah. Verdeterre said he knew just what the key went to when we picked up the key, but then when we saw the strongbox he said he wasn't sure where the key was."
Jacqueline says (to Touchy), "I think we can."
Jacqueline says, "If we just pick up things that are worth >$50, and write off the watch because we have but one bullet, the score would be $1522."
Jacqueline says, "And without the wine, $1302."
Jacqueline says, "Which would at least allow us to taunt jmac."
Touchy says, "But...if you do the strongbox you cannot pick up stuff in the hold and almost nothing on the lower level... I tried that earlier."
