NightFloyd Transcript:
A Mind Forever Voyaging by Steve Meretzky
As played on ifMUD on Dec 26, 2012 & Jan 2, 7, & 24, 2013

Like ClubFloyd, the idea behind NightFloyd is that a group of people meet online to cooperatively play a game of interactive fiction.

Unlike ClubFloyd, NightFloyd often takes on significantly larger works of interactive fiction, knowing going in that each one will take multiple sessions (but not always, as you'll see in this transcript). NightFloyd is also a bit more informal than ClubFloyd in that it's only announced on the ifMUD #clubfloyd bulletin board, and the time shifts around to meet player's schedules far more than ClubFloyd does. NightFloyd is organized by genericgeekgirl, aka Adri.

Below is a transcript of A Mind Forever Voyaging written by Steve Meretzky. A Mind Forever Voyaging was a 1985 commercial release by Infocom. You can learn more about the game, including how to download it, by visiting the IF Wiki.


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.

#ClubFloyd Discussion



Zach says, "I've been on an Infocom kick lately if anyone else is up for that."
genericgeekgirl says, "Anything in particular? There are a few on the list already."
Ellison asks, "yeah, which are you thinking?"
Zach asks, "Maybe something light on puzzles like AMFV?"
Limax asks, "Did they get rid of the colour wheel for that one?"
Ellison says, "I think I have a patched one all ready"
genericgeekgirl says, "Neat."
Limax arrives, full of neither funk nor fun. Ellison asks, "ok, I've got it down to two for me. one is bite-sized. are we thinking bite-sized, or larger?"
genericgeekgirl says, "Either is fine with me. My trip to Korea has been postponed indefinitely, so I should be available for the next few weeks."
Limax says, "I'm going nowhere. The wife is working and the kids are playing video games"
Zach says, "I'm up for either too, but I'm in the mood for larger."
Dave arrives, full of neither funk nor fun.
Dave has had his fill of playing for now, and goes back to the Lounge. Zach asks, "Oh, but since DavidW isn't here, maybe we should do bite sized?"
Zach says, "So he doesn't miss the beginning of a new game. I'm not sure if he would mind or not."
Ellison says, "he's probably played AMFV"
Zach says, "Good point"
genericgeekgirl says, "Incidentally, the PDF with my copy of AMFV has a code matrix rather than a wheel."
genericgeekgirl says, "The same thing found here: [LINK]"
Ellison says, "yeah, I just like to keep a patched copy so I don't have to refer to those things"
Ellison says, "none of my copies came with the wheel version"
genericgeekgirl says, "We have two votes, both for AMFV. So unless anyone really objects and wants to rush in and vote against it right now, that's what we're playing :)"
Ellison says, "we should play with sleep mask"
Ellison says, "or whatever it's called"
genericgeekgirl says (to Floyd), "load sleepmask amfv"

Floyd | (Phoenix) (10/11/30) In a case with far-reaching implications, the
Floyd | Arizona Supreme Court has ruled that state authorities cannot evict
Floyd | members of a religious sect from the radio telescope facility atop
Floyd | Greens Peak.
Floyd |
Floyd | The sect, a group of extremists calling itself the Church of God's
Floyd | Word, seized the facility in December of 2027, after group founder
Floyd | Ellis Vincent, 59, a minor engineer at the facility, claimed that
Floyd | signals emanating from a region in the constellation Cygnus were the
Floyd | revealed word of God.
Floyd |
Floyd | Although scientists once thought those signals might be a message from
Floyd | another intelligent race, light-years distant, most scientists now
Floyd | attribute the signals to a new type of quasar at the fringes of our
Floyd | universe. Despite this, members of the sect continue to believe that
Floyd | Greens Peak, which they call "The Mount," is a holy site, and the
Floyd | radio telescope is the "ear for hearing the word of God."
Floyd |
Floyd | A spokesman for the sect, Holy Keeper Sergei Korn, hailed the ruling
Floyd | as a sign of divine providence and revealed plans for constructing a
Floyd | temple there. Larron Hart, chairman of the American Foundation for
Floyd | Astronomical Research (AFAR), which built and ran the Greens Peak
Floyd | facility, expressed disgust at what he termed "a historically stupid
Floyd | decision," and vowed to appeal.
Floyd |
Floyd | The Church of God's Word, which received a great deal of media
Floyd | attention from the occupation of Greens Peak, has been growing rapidly
Floyd | during the past three years, and it now claims twenty thousand
Floyd | adherents worldwide. Vincent, who is referred to by his followers as
Floyd | the Holy Prophet, has not been seen in public since the takeover.

Floyd | (Colorado Springs) (11/17/30) Congress has approved the establishment
Floyd | of the Border Security Force as a separate, independent uniformed
Floyd | military service, to be headquartered in the Colorado facility known
Floyd | as the "Pentagon of the West."
Floyd |
Floyd | Since its creation in 2021, the BSF has been jointly administered by
Floyd | the U.S. Army and the CIA. Today's action makes the BSF the seventh
Floyd | branch of the Armed Forces, joining the Army, Navy, Marines, Coast
Floyd | Guard, Air Force and Space Force.
Floyd |
Floyd | Commander Rile McLoughlin, the current chief of the BSF, said that the
Floyd | BSF now has "the leeway we need to take the tough stance and
Floyd | courageous steps necessary to keep our nation free from the threat of
Floyd | nuclear blackmail."
Floyd |
Floyd | The BSF was established by Executive Order in 2021, after the
Floyd | completion of the USNA's TROY antimissile shield and the East Bloc's
Floyd | counterpart system fundamentally altered the East-West nuclear arms
Floyd | race from the building of missiles to the smuggling of miniature
Floyd | bombs.
Floyd |
Floyd | In its first nine years, the BSF has thwarted 13 attempts to bring
Floyd | fully armed nuclear devices into the USNA, as well as countless
Floyd | attempts to smuggle various parts and supplies that could be used for
Floyd | the construction of nukes. It is unknown whether any bombs have
Floyd | actually penetrated the American border.
Floyd |
Floyd | USNA and BSF officials have never confirmed the supposition that the
Floyd | BSF's secret charter also empowers it to smuggle nuclear devices into
Floyd | the territory of the East Bloc.
Floyd |
Floyd | The prevention of nuclear smuggling is expected to become even more
Floyd | difficult with the development of the nobelium bomb, a nuclear device
Floyd | which can theoretically fit in a space no larger than a pack of
Floyd | cigarettes.

Floyd | (Tripoli) (1/8/31) During 2030, Libya became a net exporter of oil for
Floyd | the first time since the 1998 nuclear accident that poisoned most of
Floyd | the Libyan oil fields.
Floyd |
Floyd | The turnaround was due to the opening of the first of six new
Floyd | refineries around the Gulf of Sidra. As the other five facilities are
Floyd | activated during the next three years, Libyan oil will add around
Floyd | seven percent to the world's petroleum supply. Experts predict that
Floyd | such a global oil glut would plunge the price of crude as much as
Floyd | twenty-five percent from its current price of $160 per barrel.
Floyd |
Floyd | The accident that decimated Libya's petroleum industry was allegedly
Floyd | caused by a mishandled attempt to develop a nuclear capability. The
Floyd | acquisition of a nuclear arsenal was a lifelong dream of former Libyan
Floyd | dictator Muammar Kaddafi, who perished in the blast along with nearly
Floyd | a million of his countrymen.

Floyd | (Vancouver) (2/6/31) The prestigious Manning Institute has released a
Floyd | study, entitled "The Tax Spiral: A Vicious Cycle," which details how
Floyd | nonreporting and underreporting of income is undermining the current
Floyd | tax structure. The study concludes that, unless changes are made, the
Floyd | federal revenue system could collapse by the end of the decade.
Floyd |
Floyd | The Tax Spiral is the phenomenon where high rates cause more people to
Floyd | cheat on their taxes, necessitating even higher rates, causing even
Floyd | more people to cheat, and so forth. Economists believe that the
Floyd | current tax spiral began in the late twentieth century.

Floyd | Senator Richard Ryder is the foremost spokesman for advocates of the
Floyd | Plan for Renewed National Purpose. Here are excerpts from several of
Floyd | his speeches on the Plan:
Floyd |
Floyd | "I've criticized the shiftless troublemakers in our nation often
Floyd | enough. But I also question the moral decay of our society that turns
Floyd | potentially fine young lads into shiftless troublemakers in the first
Floyd | place! Is it possible we've forgotten the basics of discipline, and
Floyd | misplaced the ability to instill the simple fundamentals of a humane
Floyd | society in our youths?"
Floyd |
Floyd | "Yesterday, I spoke to a man who waited for eleven hours at the local
Floyd | branch of the Federal Firearms Agency, just to get a permit for a gun
Floyd | so he could protect his family and his home. Now, anyone who knows me
Floyd | knows I haven't got a darn thing against legitimate functions of
Floyd | government. But when regulations, paperwork, and flim-flam bureaucracy
Floyd | get so out of hand that it interferes with a man's simple, decent
Floyd | attempt to protect his loved ones and personal property, then I say
Floyd | it's time for a drastic change."
Floyd |
Floyd | "Last year, this country subsidized sick, inefficient, dying
Floyd | industries to the tune of eighty billion dollars. Now, that's a lot of
Floyd | dough. Let's say you're Joe Average-Taxpayer. Last year, you made
Floyd | $90,000 and, if you're honest, you paid about $48,000 in taxes. That
Floyd | means that you spent about $400 so that Penn Steel or Powell Computers
Floyd | or KGN Media Services could stay in business. There are a lot of
Floyd | things Joe could do with that 400 bucks, and almost every one of them
Floyd | would have a healthier effect on our economy than life support for
Floyd | some archaic industry."
Floyd |
Floyd | "A lot of bleeding hearts these days are talking about how we ought to
Floyd | be sending a lot of money and stuff to countries that aren't as lucky
Floyd | as us. These misguided souls seem to think we're some kind of
Floyd | bottomless well of wealth, and they can just keep shipping that well
Floyd | water around the world, telling their thirsty little friends, 'No need
Floyd | for you to knuckle down and solve your problems -- we'll keep bailing
Floyd | you out!' And who are some of these poor little countries we're
Floyd | talking about? Greece! Guatemala! North Korea! Albania! The same
Floyd | countries that are always against the USNA in every issue, every
Floyd | forum, every two-bit propaganda show. I think I speak for a majority
Floyd | of my fellow citizens when I say, 'Let's start looking after our own
Floyd | interests first!'"
Floyd |
Floyd | "Yes, the problems of the nation are many, the troubles of the world
Floyd | are great. There is widespread despair among the people, and a clarion
Floyd | call cries out: 'Why? Why must this be so?' And now, electrified by
Floyd | the power of those cries, clouds of change are gathering on the
Floyd | horizon. Clouds that signify not another storm, but the dawning of a
Floyd | new day! A new day of growth, of prosperity, of hope, of reawakened
Floyd | moral values, of streamlined government, of respect for our country at
Floyd | home and abroad! The Plan for Renewed National Purpose would bring all
Floyd | that and more. The road is long, but with the Lord at our side, we are
Floyd | ready to take that first step!"

Floyd | The following excerpts are from a position paper issued by Citizens
Floyd | for Sanity in Government, a political action committee working for the
Floyd | reelection of President William Bowden:
Floyd |
Floyd | "Many of today's domestic problems, such as joybooth safety, high
Floyd | energy costs, or residual acidity in our precipitation, exist not
Floyd | because of sophisticated government regulation, but despite it."
Floyd |
Floyd | "Subsidization of industries caught in a changing economic environment
Floyd | is a temporary measure, vital to avoid severe, localized unemployment
Floyd | while retraining workers for healthier industries."
Floyd |
Floyd | "Global instability is exploited by East Bloc adventurism, not caused
Floyd | by it. Instability is the result of underdevelopment and
Floyd | overpopulation, and it will be cured not by militarization of these
Floyd | regions, but by development aid and education. These programs,
Floyd | expensive in this generation, will have tremendous paybacks in the
Floyd | years ahead."
Floyd |
Floyd | "The Plan's supporters are blatantly hypocritical. They call for
Floyd | old-fashioned laissez-faire capitalism, but at the same time they
Floyd | promise protectionist restrictions on trade imports. They pay lip
Floyd | service to the advantages of technological advance, but they quietly
Floyd | prepare to decimate funding for medical research, space exploration,
Floyd | and higher education."
Floyd |
Floyd | "The elements of the misnomered Plan for Renewed National Purpose are
Floyd | either dangerous overreactions to admittedly serious problems, or
Floyd | misguided concepts lacking any merit whatsoever. The Plan is the work
Floyd | of hypocrites and demagogues, clamoring for power by making promises
Floyd | they can never keep. Today's complex problems need and deserve sober,
Floyd | deliberate, difficult solutions, not cosmetic quick-fixes which sound
Floyd | inviting but promise even bigger problems further down the road."

Floyd | This massive complex is a revolutionary and controversial concept in
Floyd | urban development, the "city within a city." Apartments of every size,

Floyd | The headline story in the news section is about the Index of Leading
Floyd | Economic Indicators, which are up a stunning 9.7% over last month, yet
Floyd | another indication of the economy's robust performance. Related
Floyd | stories discuss the unemployment rate, which is at the lowest level in
Floyd | almost thirty years, and commercial and housing construction, which
Floyd | are at an all-time high.
Floyd |
Floyd | Another major story covers President Ryder's speech for the
Floyd | Distinguished Lecturer Series of the Border Security Force Academy. In
Floyd | his address, the President called the '40s a "decade of new hope," and
Floyd | attributed much of that new hope to the work of the BSF, sending a
Floyd | signal to the entire world that the USNA "won't be pushed around by
Floyd | the biggest dictatorship or the smallest band of terrorist murderers."
Floyd |
Floyd | On one of the inside pages, an in-depth report on crime reveals that,
Floyd | although the overall crime rate has dropped only 4% over the last
Floyd | decade, public perception is that crime has fallen much further. The
Floyd | report attributes this perception to three points: Violent crime has
Floyd | decreased much faster than other types of crime, and is down by 15%
Floyd | from ten years ago. Crime in the schools, which has always gotten the
Floyd | most publicity, has dropped by 40%. Most importantly, offenders are
Floyd | getting harsher sentences, as opposed to the old days of getting off
Floyd | on technicalities, low bail, and easy parole.
Floyd |
Floyd | Other stories in the news section deal with the construction of a new
Floyd | InfoTech orbiting factory, deregulation of the medicinal drug
Floyd | industry, the war in Turkey, and plans for a lunar mining operation.
Floyd | An editorial calls for lowering draft board requirements in order to
Floyd | ease prison overcrowding.

Floyd |
Floyd | The headline story in the news section is about the Index of Leading
Floyd | Economic Indicators, which are up a stunning 9.7% over last month, yet
Floyd | another indication of the economy's robust performance. Related
Floyd | stories discuss the unemployment rate, which is at the lowest level in
Floyd | almost thirty years, and commercial and housing construction, which
Floyd | are at an all-time high.
Floyd |
Floyd | Another major story covers President Ryder's speech for the
Floyd | Distinguished Lecturer Series of the Border Security Force Academy. In
Floyd | his address, the President called the '40s a "decade of new hope," and
Floyd | attributed much of that new hope to the work of the BSF, sending a
Floyd | signal to the entire world that the USNA "won't be pushed around by
Floyd | the biggest dictatorship or the smallest band of terrorist murderers."
Floyd |
Floyd | On one of the inside pages, an in-depth report on crime reveals that,
Floyd | although the overall crime rate has dropped only 4% over the last
Floyd | decade, public perception is that crime has fallen much further. The
Floyd | report attributes this perception to three points: Violent crime has
Floyd | decreased much faster than other types of crime, and is down by 15%
Floyd | from ten years ago. Crime in the schools, which has always gotten the
Floyd | most publicity, has dropped by 40%. Most importantly, offenders are
Floyd | getting harsher sentences, as opposed to the old days of getting off
Floyd | on technicalities, low bail, and easy parole.
Floyd |
Floyd | Other stories in the news section deal with the construction of a new
Floyd | InfoTech orbiting factory, deregulation of the medicinal drug
Floyd | industry, the war in Turkey, and plans for a lunar mining operation.
Floyd | An editorial calls for lowering draft board requirements in order to
Floyd | ease prison overcrowding.

DavidW arrives, full of fun, but no funk. genericgeekgirl says, "I hope Zach is coming."
genericgeekgirl says, "So, last week we completed the first mission, where we went into a simulation and completed a bunch of things like talking to priests and riding the train. Fun stuff."
genericgeekgirl says, "And we were told that we can probably do a "more accurate simulation" soon."

Floyd | The newspaper is extremely thin, and the news section is the thinnest
Floyd | section of all. The lead story deals with the drop in USNA farm
Floyd | output, the first drop in twenty years. A spokesman for the Department
Floyd | of Agriculture attributed the decline to a year of unseasonable cold
Floyd | and low rainfall, and predicted that the coming year would more than
Floyd | make up for it. An alternative viewpoint was expressed by the head of
Floyd | the American Association of Agribusiness, who claimed the drop was
Floyd | caused by overfarming of lands, depletion of aquifers, and an increase
Floyd | in acid rain, and called for a massive government program to save the
Floyd | country's farms.

Floyd | "A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CHURCH OF GOD'S WORD
Floyd |
Floyd | The Church of God's Word is the vision of a great man, a man named
Floyd | Ellis Vincent. He alone, of all the scientists on the Mount who heard
Floyd | the signals, recognized them for what they were, the Word of God.
Floyd |
Floyd | The Holy Prophet was ridiculed and persecuted for his beliefs, but he
Floyd | had the strength that comes from knowing the Truth, and Followers
Floyd | began to hear those Truths and flock around him. They grew in numbers
Floyd | and in strength, and when the Evil Scientists of the Mount attempted
Floyd | to bar Vincent from the instruments there, he and his Followers rose
Floyd | up and smote the Evil Scientists.
Floyd |
Floyd | And so it came to pass, in 2025, that the Temple was founded on the
Floyd | Mount, and the Instrument of the Word was devoted entirely to
Floyd | listening to God's Word. Vincent interpreted the Words for his
Floyd | Followers, who broadcast the Message around the world, and branches of
Floyd | the Church appeared in many cities.
Floyd |
Floyd | When Vincent finally became very old, and God began to beckon his
Floyd | servant to his side, he taught the wisest of his Followers how to
Floyd | interpret the Word, so that the world would continue to understand the
Floyd | Word after he was gone. These Followers became the High Priests of the
Floyd | Church, who to this day continue to pass along God's Word."

Floyd | Wicker Drive, which begins here, heads south under a railroad bridge.
Floyd | Main Street leads west toward the center of the city and east across a
Floyd | bridge over the river. A grocery store, its window filled with food,

Floyd | "A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CHURCH OF GOD'S WORD
Floyd |
Floyd | The Church of God's Word is the vision of a great man, a man named
Floyd | Ellis Vincent. He alone, of all the scientists on the Mount who heard
Floyd | the signals, recognized them for what they were, the Word of God.
Floyd |
Floyd | The Holy Prophet was ridiculed and persecuted for his beliefs, but he
Floyd | had the strength that comes from knowing the Truth, and Followers
Floyd | began to hear those Truths and flock around him. They grew in numbers
Floyd | and in strength, and when the Evil Scientists of the Mount attempted
Floyd | to bar Vincent from the instruments there, he and his Followers rose
Floyd | up and smote the Evil Scientists.
Floyd |
Floyd | And so it came to pass, in 2025, that the Temple was founded on the
Floyd | Mount, and the Instrument of the Word was devoted entirely to
Floyd | listening to God's Word. Vincent interpreted the Words for his
Floyd | Followers, who broadcast the Message around the world, and branches of
Floyd | the Church appeared in many cities.
Floyd |
Floyd | When Vincent finally became very old, and God began to beckon his
Floyd | servant to his side, he taught the wisest of his Followers how to
Floyd | interpret the Word, so that the world would continue to understand the
Floyd | Word after he was gone. These Followers became the High Priests of the
Floyd | Church, who to this day continue to pass along God's Word."

Floyd | of Agriculture attributed the decline to a year of unseasonable cold
Floyd | and low rainfall, and predicted that the coming year would more than
Floyd | make up for it. An alternative viewpoint was expressed by the head of
Floyd | the American Association of Agribusiness, who claimed the drop was
Floyd | caused by overfarming of lands, depletion of aquifers, and an increase
Floyd | in acid rain, and called for a massive government program to save the

Floyd | The HVAC Controller is a simple computer which activates and
Floyd | deactivates the heating, ventilating, and cooling systems of the PRISM
Floyd | complex.
Floyd |
Floyd | The complex is divided into four independent sectors, and the
Floyd | controller can be instructed to shut off or turn on the systems in any
Floyd | of them. For example:
Floyd |    HVAC CONTROLLER, SHUT OFF COOLING FOR ALPHA SECTOR
Floyd |    HVAC CONTROLLER, START VENTILATION IN GAMMA SECTOR
Floyd |    HVAC CONTROLLER, TURN ON HEATING TO ALL SECTORS
Floyd |
Floyd | HVAC CONTROLLER, STATUS orders the device to give a report on the
Floyd | systems, by sector.

Floyd |
Floyd | The four functions can be independently scheduled for any time between

Floyd | shelves are sparsely filled with plain, badly labelled tins. The exit
Floyd | to the street is north, and the exit to the car lot is southwest.

Floyd | Southway & Park
Floyd | Southway bends sharply at this intersection, leading east and
Floyd | southwest. Park Street begins here and heads north. There are aging
Floyd | buildings on the northeast and western corners, and even older-looking
Floyd | buildings to the northwest and southeast. A grocery store, its
Floyd | dimly-lit windows revealing sparse stacks of cans, spans the southern
Floyd | side of the street.

Floyd | Parkview Apartments
Floyd | You are in the vestibule of a typical high-rise city apartment
Floyd | building. A wide expanse of labelled buzzers and tiny mailboxes fills
Floyd | one wall. The mailboxes have been extensively vandalized, and graffiti
Floyd | is sprayed across every surface. Glass doors lie closed to the west.
Floyd | Next to this inner door is a tangle of cords where a picturephone has
Floyd | been ripped out by vandals. The street lies to the east.
