>THE DEADLY MOUNTAIN copyright ©1982 SAFE incorporated. > >*Therruk, Nepal. 15,000 feet above sea level.* >A helicopter slowly lowers itself onto the ground near the village. You, 27 year-old Joseph McKinney, step out. Beyond the foothills, Mount Everest towers above you. You've been here before- in 1976, when you became the youngest man to ever ascend... and survive. The only man who knows more about the mountain than you is up there, and your job is to rescue him. He was last seen here, and from there on we have no evidence of him. Nobody knows what's happened to him, or if he's still alive. But you know he's still alive. This just doesn't make sense... >You arrive at the village. The chief welcomes you in English- the place has had experience with dozens of climbers in the past. Although the air is thin, various shrubs grow along the nearby stream. You check to see if your belongings are still with you. They are- your watch, assignment, I.D., radio, and camera. Jaranu, a woman in the village, has offered to provide shelter.Ahead of you is the path up to Mount Everest. To your right is the stream. To your left is the village and the chief. Behind you is the helicopter. ... Hello, Save_Ferris here starting a choose-your-own-adventure game. This is a bit more detailed than RTD, but less involved than Imperium Offtopicum. Basically, in this game you are on Mount Everest trying to find a lost climber. Once you start, you can only do one action per post. As this is supposed to be like an old computer game, actions should be preceded by '>'. Also, only certain actions are allowed: >Walk_Right >Walk_Left >Walk_Forwards >Walk_Backwards >Climb_Up (when by climbable item) >Climb_Down (when by climbable item) >Pick_Up_[item] >Use_[item] >Use_[item]_On_[item/person] >Say_To_[Person]: [Text] >Enter >Leave >Open_[item] You can only use items in your inventory, and only pick up found items. I do not respond to all posts in the same way. For instance, if two posters decide to walk left, different things will happen to them. If you die, you will respawn with the inventory you had right before dying. ...But enough already, let's start this!
