    Text Adventure Game: Part Deux

    You are now at the entrance to a refugee camp, judging by the old style (Red Ensign) Canadian flag you see hanging, it's probably part of the same rebel group the men you met back at the town were. You were forced to dump your pack, and everything except for a carbine slung across your pack and the newer handgun you picked up, in order to run here. The only other thing in your possession is an Intel briefcase.

    The camp is surrounded by a tall barbed wire fence, directly in front of you is an open gate. Through the gate you can see what looks like a large pre-fab structure surrounded by holes in the ground. It looks like this was once a construction site. In the holes are dozens of tents. You didn't notice them at first, but you can see hidden anti aircraft weapons poking out of holes in the ground.

    Notes:
    I am doing away with the "Video game conventions" I.E saving, capitalizing important items, etc. This "Part" will be longer then the last one, and establish much of the world. I have also as of yet not come up with a fair way to do combat and other such times that would require some sort of quick reflexes, so I'm going to rely mostly on exploration and dialogue being the game itself.

    I really don't see the problem, hell you could bring the enter ISB into the discussion forum and not much would change.

    You walk into the camp, and hear what sounds like a door opening up directly behind you. You then hear a click.

    Operation "Move moderately popular thread to a dead forum" has been a rousing success.

    I take a quick mental check of my current inventory.

    A carbine on your back, a handgun, and the intel.

    (Thanks, but I'm still moderately mad at CM for this)

    (You should neither be thanking me nor mad at CM. I posted and linked this in my signature only for selfish reasons - I wish to promote any activity on the ISB. You shouldn't be mad at CM because he is right - this "game" no longer resembles a game by your own words. Not posting an interactive story on the ISB because "the board is dead" is circular and self-fulfilling. If you had a COG question, you'd post it on the COG forum. If you had something to showcase, you'd post it in the Showcase forum. This is no different. If you want your thread to be active, PM the people who were in your previous thread to post again.)

    If I had my way the entire ISB would just be rolled into the discussion forum, why in gods name do we segment forums with a <50 regular person count.

    Drop suitcase and slowly scoot it a little to the left. Tell "them" your name and a brief explanation of what happened... Leaving out the part where everyone else is probably dead.

    And what's the best way to make a very slow forum active again? Move a moderately successful thread to it! Especially one that basically defines the forum's purpose. Now push on and make it work, stop being mopey.

    Actually, the only reason I haven't advocated CM to consolidate the ISB (and pretty much the rest of the forums for that matter) into the Discussion Forum is because there's a number of old ISB threads that could get pruned, and the NeS would become more difficult to find when it dropped from the active threads list (which it would, since the Discussion Forum is set to 2 days by default). However, those issues could be made moot if a) we made an "archives" forum (though this may be moot anyway if the forums don't get pruned anymore) and b) convert the "index" thread to be more inclusive to other popular threads that don't always stay active.

    Unless CM agrees with me, though, his previous point above stands.

    Or I was going to, but nobody posted so welp.
    Maybe I should just use this as some sort of train of thought dumping ground. Hell I could store passwords here it's not like anybody will ever see them.
