The Knightmare Vending Machine

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.
A coin in the hand is worth two in the machine
I insert a coin.

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.

Sorry - Sold Out try again Fidjit.

All I wanted was a password, or at least a Dr Pepper :D

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.

I insert a coin.

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.

You receive a spell scroll. On closer inspection, you find that it contains both TRANSFORMATION and BUT. Someone's crossed out TRANSFORMATION in red marker pen and put a circle around BUT with annotations saying things like "this is the right one to use" and "winners use this spell". You decide to use TRANSFORMATION should you run into any difficulty.

I'm waiting patiently for the chance to insert a coin. I do so.

Hope the results of the TRANSFORMATION spell aren't too ghastly! 8-o

Your coin is accecpted and with it you receive...

A romantic (Or not!) dinner for two with Sylvester Hands at The Crazed Heifer.

Music will be provided by Ridolfo, who will be serenading you with a selection of classic Showaddywaddy hits.

I nervously insert another coin... :-/
