ClubFloyd Transcript:
Enchanter by Marc Blank and Dave Lebling
As played on ifMUD on November 13 & 18 and December 18, 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 Enchanter written by Marc Blank and Dave Lebling, and cf8 written by Unknown. You can learn more about the game by visiting the IFDB page: Enchanter.


WARNING! Below you will find a transcript of people playing these games, and it goes without saying that the transcript is full of spoilers. So, if you've never played these games, 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.

Floyd | It must be the warlock Krill. The odd disappearances, the mysterious
Floyd | dissolution of regions sacred to the Circle, the lessening of the
Floyd | Powers -- these could only be his handiwork. The Circle gathers and
Floyd | its leader, the esteemed Belboz, reveals to them an ancient document
Floyd | which portends evil days much like our own.
Floyd |
Floyd | "Krill's evil must be unmade," he begins, "but to send a powerful
Floyd | Enchanter is ill-omened. It would be ruinous to reveal oversoon our
Floyd | full powers." A ripple of concern spreads over the face of each
Floyd | Enchanter. Belboz pauses, and collects his resolve. "Have hope! This
Floyd | has been written by a hand far wiser than mine!"
Floyd |
Floyd | He recites a short spell and you appear. Belboz approaches,
Floyd | transfixing you with his gaze, and hands you the document. The other
Floyd | Enchanters await his decree. "These words, written ages ago, can have
Floyd | only one meaning. You, a novice Enchanter with but a few simple spells
Floyd | in your Book, must seek out Krill, explore the Castle he has
Floyd | overthrown, and learn his secrets. Only then may his vast evil be
Floyd | lessened or, with good fortune, destroyed."
Floyd |
Floyd | The Circle rises and intones a richly woven spell, whose many textures
Floyd | imbue the small, darkened chamber with warmth and hope. There is a
Floyd | surge of power; you are Sent.

Jacqueline puts on her reading glasses. Jacqueline got old this week and had to buy her first pair. They're kind of cute, though.
DavidW says, "By the way, in this game Belboz is played by William Shatner and we're wearing a red shirt."
Jacqueline says, "snrk. Good to know."
Jacqueline says, "Also, wow, I only remember Krill from the books."
DavidW asks (of Jacqueline), "You never played this one?"

DavidW says, "SPELLS should tell us what we've memorized."
Peregrine says, "Wow, that isn't a spell book, it's a spell leaflet"
Doug arrives, full of fun, but no funk. DavidW says, "We have to LEARN a spell before we can CAST it, I think."
Doug says, "oops, lost track of time"
Peregrine says, "Hi, Doug"
Peregrine says, "We just loaded Enchanter."
Peregrine says, "Nothing's happened yet."
Doug says, "ah, ok. Hm, I think I will stick with comp games today"
DavidW says, "The first order of business, though, is to find food and water."
Peregrine says, "Okay, Master."
Peregrine grovels.
Jacqueline asks (of DW), "That bad a daemon, huh?"
Peregrine asks, "Who's mapping?"
Jacqueline says (to Doug), "Sorry 'bout that. We decided for nostalgia today."
Doug says, "totally fine!"
DavidW says (to Jacqueline), "I might be exaggerating a bit. It didn't bother me then. It bothered me a lot years later."
Jacqueline says (to Peregrine), "Um, you are? (She says, hopefully...)"
Doug says, "I doubt we could find a comp game that none of us has played, at this point"
Jacqueline says, "I have too much trouble tracking the game when I'm mappying."
Jacqueline says (to Doug), "That was part of our thinking, yeah."
Doug says, "though I guess there's still Ectocomp games."
Jacqueline asks, "Or maybe DW could map, since he's played it?"
Jacqueline says (to DW), "If you're planning to stick around."
DavidW says, "If I remember this game's geography, we generally want to head east. There's a mountain in the way, though. And other things around."
DavidW says, "I can find my old maps."
Jacqueline says (to DW), "Sweet. Thanks."

Peregrine gets Hobbit vibe.
Jacqueline asks, "Honestly, if the map isn't too spoilery, I'm sure it's probably online and we could all just reference it. DW, what's your recommendation? Look at it, or avoid?"
DavidW says, "I seem to have misplaced my Zork binder."
Jacqueline exclaims, "!"
DavidW says, "I wasn't expecting to use it today."
Jacqueline says, "Fair."
Jacqueline says (to DW), "It's online here: [LINK]"
Doug has had his fill of playing for now, and goes back to the Lounge. Jacqueline asks, "Could you please take a look and let us know if it's cool for those of us who haven't played to reference it?"
DavidW says, "The map, if I remember, is mostly a mountain in the west half and a castle in the east half."
DavidW says, "You will want to explore around the mountain and its summit, and you don't really need much of a map for that."
Jacqueline asks (of Peregrine), "Which way would you like to go? Fade into the West, or go east?"
Jacqueline asks, "Hm. Let's go west first, actually. That okay?"
Jacqueline asks, "...Peregrine?"
Peregrine says, "Sorry, I was looking at the map"

Jacqueline asks (of P), "So, back east, then explore the mountain?"
Peregrine says, "I'd like to look at the village."
DavidW says, "To get all the binders to fit, I have to put some backwards, with the spine facing the wall. That makes it not obvious if a binder is on the shelf or not."
BrianK asks, "Just to check, are we using the premade map?"
Jacqueline says (to BK), "I am waiting to hear from David if the map is spoilery, though P has already looked."
DavidW says, "I didn't look at the link."
Jacqueline says, "I mean, to be honest, back in the day I would have bought the map, most likely."
DavidW says, "hold on"

Floyd | It must be the warlock Krill. The odd disappearances, the mysterious
Floyd | dissolution of regions sacred to the Circle, the lessening of the
Floyd | Powers -- these could only be his handiwork. The Circle gathers and
Floyd | its leader, the esteemed Belboz, reveals to them an ancient document
Floyd | which portends evil days much like our own.
Floyd |
Floyd | "Krill's evil must be unmade," he begins, "but to send a powerful
Floyd | Enchanter is ill-omened. It would be ruinous to reveal oversoon our
Floyd | full powers." A ripple of concern spreads over the face of each
Floyd | Enchanter. Belboz pauses, and collects his resolve. "Have hope! This
Floyd | has been written by a hand far wiser than mine!"
Floyd |
Floyd | He recites a short spell and you appear. Belboz approaches,
Floyd | transfixing you with his gaze, and hands you the document. The other
Floyd | Enchanters await his decree. "These words, written ages ago, can have
Floyd | only one meaning. You, a novice Enchanter with but a few simple spells
Floyd | in your Book, must seek out Krill, explore the Castle he has
Floyd | overthrown, and learn his secrets. Only then may his vast evil be
Floyd | lessened or, with good fortune, destroyed."
Floyd |
Floyd | The Circle rises and intones a richly woven spell, whose many textures
Floyd | imbue the small, darkened chamber with warmth and hope. There is a
Floyd | surge of power; you are Sent.

Floyd |
Floyd | This legend, written in an ancient tongue, goes something like this:
Floyd | At one time a shapeless and formless manifestation of evil was
Floyd | disturbed from millenia of sleep. It was so powerful that it required
Floyd | the combined wisdom of the leading enchanters of that age to conquer
Floyd | it. The legend tells how the enchanters lured the Terror "to a recess
Floyd | deep within the earth" by placing there a powerful spell scroll. When
Floyd | it had reached the scroll, the enchanters trapped it there with a
Floyd | spell that encased it in the living rock. The Terror was so horrible
Floyd | that none would dare speak of it. A comment at the end of the
Floyd | narration indicates that the story is considered to be quite fanciful;

Floyd | Jewel Room
Floyd | This fabulous room commands a magnificent view of the Lonely Mountain
Floyd | which lies to the north and west. The room itself is filled with
Floyd | beautiful chests and cabinets which once contained precious jewels and
Floyd | other objets d'art. These are empty. Winding stone stairs lead down to
Floyd | the base of the tower.
Floyd | There is an ornamented egg here, both beautiful and complex. It is

Floyd | skewer him.

Floyd | the altar. As the shapes grab you, the figure in black speaks: "Take
Floyd | the victim to the tower. I shall prepare for the sacrifice!" The
