ClubFloyd Transcript:
Sherlock: The Riddle of the Crown Jewels by Bob Bates
As played on ifMUD on February 28 - March 6, 2016

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 Sherlock: The Riddle of the Crown Jewels written by Bob Bates. It is an Infocom game from 1987. 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.

Teaspoon asks, "ooh, Sherlock? Have we played that?"
DavidW says, "I don't know. That might be the Infocom game."
Teaspoon says, "IFDB strongly implies it is"
DavidW says, "If it is the Infocom game, that'd be very difficult to play without the map and other feelies."
Teaspoon says, "Ah well"
DavidW says, "We could still try it if you're curious."
DavidW says, "and geez, I'm lagging badly here."
Teaspoon asks, "what does anyone else think?"
Teaspoon says, "cos otherwise, I'm all for it."
DavidW says, "Jacqueline's still asleep and Roger seems mostly idle."
DavidW says (to Floyd), "load sleepmask sherlock"

Doug asks, "is this the Infocom game?"
DavidW says, "I assume we'll be continuing Sherlock today, unless players decide otherwise."
Teaspoon says, "Yes"
Teaspoon says, "And I imagine so unless someone has a reason otherwise. Which, perhaps they do."
DavidW says, "I posted my maps of the game so-far at [LINK]"
Teaspoon says, "that looks close to my map. Hang on."
DavidW says, "I added a couple extra rooms that we hadn't actually seen yet, but not too many."
Teaspoon asks, "will we have to map the Tower as well?"
DavidW says, "Yes, the Tower has multiple rooms to it."
DavidW says, "I suspect Diogenes Club and the Bank are only one or two rooms each, though."
DavidW says, "and I wasn't through about the Thames."
DavidW says, "er thorough."
Teaspoon says, "are you sure that there's a sanctuary-nave passage? Because I seem to recall trying that one from both ends without success."
DavidW says, "I think the Tower is similar in complexity to the Abbey, at least in room count. Probably more up-and-down than diagonals, though."
Teaspoon says, "other than that my map matches yours"
DavidW says, "I'm mostly confident the Nave to Sanctuary connection exists. My older notes have it indicated."
Teaspoon says, "we can run it again in the theoretical second-playthough, if such turns out to be required."
DavidW says, "yeah, there's a possibility of time constraints we have to be very careful about."
Teaspoon says, "As Jac said last week, no one's expected to get an Infocom game right first through, so..."
DavidW says, "Yes, that's quite true."
Teaspoon says, "thanks for the map though. Looks like this could be a lifesaver."
DavidW says, "I hope it will be. There's a few places on the larger map where we do need to visit, even though they're not suggested by the riddles."
DavidW says, "We already found the oar in the Black Museum, for example."
Teaspoon says, "Oh, right! Most...implausible, that."
DavidW says, "We should wait for Jacqueline and Perry too, of course."
DavidW asks, "oh, except Perry is already here?"
Teaspoon says, "Oh, I was counting on waiting."
Doug says, "Jacq said to start without her"
DavidW says, "oh, so I see. Well, it's still not quite noon."
DavidW asks, "I think we can wait at least 3 minutes more, eh wot?"
Teaspoon says, "smashing pumpkins"
DavidW says, "Also, I suppose this goes without saying, but we'll want to save often if we need to backtrack or redo a bit to save time."
DavidW asks, "Should we wait longer or just start?"
Teaspoon says, "suppose we might as well start"
Teaspoon asks, "who wants to drive?"
DavidW says, "I think you should. I sorta know how the next bit goes already."
Teaspoon says, "okay"
DavidW asks, "Do you know how to load the game up? Or should I do that part?"
Jacqueline arrives, full of funk, but no fun. Teaspoon says, "er, can anyone pull up the transcript for where we left off? I've forgotten where that was"
Jacqueline says, "Howdy"
DavidW says, "hey hey, Jacqueline is here!"
Teaspoon exclaims, "Hallo!"
Jacqueline says, "Want last week's transcript, is that what I just saw? I haven't read any of the back scroll."
Teaspoon says, "Just the last few lines so I remember what we were actually going to do next."
DavidW says, "I think we had just revealed the new riddles from the tomb rubbings? So we're probably in the Abbey."
Doug says, "sorry Jacq, we finished without you."
Teaspoon says, "oh yes, the riddles."
DavidW says, "And our final ranking was 'I'm The Batman'."
Teaspoon says, "ha"
Jacqueline says, "One sec"
DavidW says (to Jacqueline), "You may want to look at my maps for today: [LINK]"
DavidW says, "Thanks for the transcript."
Teaspoon says, "thanks"
Teaspoon exclaims, "Ah yes, Threadneedle Street!"
Jacqueline asks (of DW), "Did you generate this map during this past week?"
Teaspoon exclaims, "To the Bank of London!"
DavidW says (to Jacqueline), "Yes. After we finished playing, I played a bit for a few days afterwards to make this."
DavidW says, "I also played a leetle bit ahead; couldn't resist."
DavidW says, "I have not seen inside the Tower or the Bank or in Diogenes Club recently."
Teaspoon says, "so I get to map those myself."
Teaspoon exclaims, "whoo!"
Teaspoon exclaims, "tentatively!"
Teaspoon says, "but yes, I'm still not sure how to load anything without blowing up Floyd (even if that's not actually possible)"
DavidW says, "I suspect only the Tower is complex of the unmapped areas."
Teaspoon says, "good to know"
Teaspoon says, "there's only one club in the Diogenes Club we're even allowed to enter, going by the canon"
Jacqueline gets bored and wanders off to the Toyshop.
