ClubFloyd Transcript:
Sorcerer by Steve Meretzky
As played on ifMUD on January 22, February 5 & 12, 2017

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 Sorcerer written by Steve Meretzky. 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.

DavidW says, "Sorcerer"
Allen says, "ah"
Jacqueline says, "Yes, Sorcerer," just for completeness.
BrianK says, "It's decidedly more straightforward than Enchanter in terms of reaching AN ending"
Allen says, "Sorcerer is such an evil game, unforgiving in the extreme, with more forms of death than just about any other infocom game. But it's much harder to end up in an unwinnable state than Enchanter"
Jacqueline says, "See, I'm totes cool with this ending. Are you wanting to ... probe further? (Pun intended, I guess.)"
Allen says, "Sorcerer was the first infocom game I solved with no trouble.Maybe 2 weeks of effort? I think I may have finished in less than a week (but I played it during a holiday in school I recall, so I could put a solid 10-14 hours at a time at it)"
McMartin says, "I'm pretty sure that Sorcerer is the only Infocom game I've solved without hints"

BrianK says, "Continue our game from last week? :P"
Jacqueline asks, "Oh. You want to continue it and find a better ending?"
BrianK says, "Yeah"
