The Knightmare Vending Machine

Post by Pooka » Mon Feb 06, 2017 1:39 pm

Okay, here's a simple forum game which I've seen played in various places - we even had a version running on NKTP at some point - that I think we could have a go at.

Basically, it's a continuing cycle of entering a coin into a vending machine, with the next person to post saying what they get, and inserting their own coin. This is an example:
Player 1 wrote:I insert a coin.
Player 2 wrote:You get a can of lemonade.

I insert a coin.
Player 3 wrote:You get a cup of tea.

I insert a coin.
The above is a very basic example. You can be as outlandish as you like, but I think it might be more in keeping with Knightmare if all the things dispensed are Knightmare, mediaeval, or fantasy-based.

So shall we have a go at it?

I insert a coin.

You receive a clue scroll.

You get a bar of gold, similar to the ones found on the clue room tables. You try to insert it into the machine, but it doesn't take bars of gold of that particular size. You are disappointed, as you don't have any more coins.

I do, however. So I insert a coin.

You don't have a password, so how could you get past a blocker, never mind use the machine?

In any case, the password's on the scroll, which is on the clue table, which also has coins. I take one and insert it.

I happen to have a coin, so I shall have a flagon of Ale, provided that's on offer in this vending machine?

Cheers! :)

You receive the ale you asked for. You are surprised to find that it tastes like cherries. It has, in fact, been synthesised from the cherry on the Life Force pie, and now you are aging exponentially.

Oh dear...

I don't want to end up like Erica/Morganna from The Sorcerer's Isle!! 8-o

Mind you, if the Ale is good enough I'm sure I'll be too drunk to care! ;) ;D

The machine takes your coin and with it you receive a...

Hubcap for a 1976 Mark III Ford Cortina!!

I insert another coin.
