ClubFloyd Transcript:
Augmented Fourth by Brian Uri
As played on ifMUD over five sessions between March 22 and May 24, 2020

The idea behind ClubFloyd is that each week at a pre-arranged time, a group of people meet online to cooperatively play a game of interactive fiction.

Below is a transcript of Augmented Fourth written by Brian Uri. Augmented Fourth was released in 2000. It was nominated for two Xyzzy Awards (for Best Puzzles and Best Individual NPC). You can learn more about the game, including how to download it, by visiting IFDB.


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.

*** SESSION 1 ***
DavidW says, "We're playing Augmented Fourth."
DavidW says, "And we haven't picked any driver yet."
Sandon says, "Augmented fourth? I love that one. I've already plaid like half of it."
Jacqueline says, "We usually pick a driver if things are timed, or there's a big map, or... or other reasons. But sometimes we just explore the game as a group until we see the need for a driver."
DavidW says, "I probably won't be driving since I've played and I have to keep my spoilery-mouth shut."
Sandon says, "I've plaid some but not much, I'll still do a big oll spoiler"
Jacqueline says (to Sandon), "Ah. Well, then you may need to just watch, until we get to where you haven't played. We're fine as long as your honest."
Sandon says, "when can you actually use say command and when should you use clubfloyd channel? sorry for all the questions, I'm kinda new to this"
Teaspoon asks, "wait so has everyone played it but me?"
Jacqueline says, "I have not played it, T"
Teaspoon says, "oh ok cool"
Knight_Otu says, "I don't think I played it, but I'm not 100% sure."
Jacqueline says (to Floyd), "load sleepmask aug4"

Floyd | "In ye go!" With a heave and shove, two burly guards in matching green
Floyd | tights toss you into Orchestra Pit. As the earthen sides rush past you
Floyd | and sunlight dims, you have the sinking sensation that perhaps "Ode to
Floyd | a Duck" was not the best choice from your repertoire...

Floyd | Orchestra Pit, in Midair
Floyd | The earthen sides of this pit look loose and near the consistency of
Floyd | mud. They seem to rush past as the speed of your descent increases.

Sandon exclaims, "cooool, we've got some action!" Teaspoon says, "snort an *orchestra pit*"
Sandon asks, "who's gonna go for this bit?"
Jacqueline asks, "Oh wow. Copyright 2000-20*13*?"
Teaspoon says, "long lead time"
DavidW says, "I think free-for-all is fine until we leave the pit."
Jacqueline says, "So this is either a very tightly timed situation, or an eternal drop like in Alice in Wonderland."

Floyd | Flailing helplessly, you fall further into the pit...
Floyd |
Floyd | Orchestra Pit, in Midair
Floyd | The light from above dims with each passing moment. A large gnarled
Floyd | root from some hidden root system protrudes from the side of the pit
Floyd | here.

Floyd | > GRAB ROOT
Floyd |
Floyd | Straining, you reach out and make a grab for the root. You manage to
Floyd | hang on for a few moments, but the combination of a pulpy texture and
Floyd | the slickness of mud prevents you from keeping it in your grasp.
Floyd |
Floyd | Up above, the guard with the hooked nose nudges his companion. "Hey
Floyd | Rob, aren't ye supposed to read the fellow his sentence?" The other
Floyd | guard blinks and nods. "Quite right, Jim..." He searches for the
Floyd | scroll in the pockets of his tights for a few seconds before realizing
Floyd | that they have no pockets. "One moment...It's around here somewhere."
Floyd | He disappears from view.
Floyd |
Floyd | Your face turns an unhealthy green as you fall, and you wonder what
Floyd | ever possessed you to audition for the King...
Floyd |
Floyd | Orchestra Pit, in Midair
Floyd | Although the bottom is quite dark, you think you are about halfway
Floyd | down the pit. The end of a rope is caught in the muddy wall here and
Floyd | the length of the rope hangs down about five feet.

Sandon says, "I'll give a bit of a hint, it's not as bad as it looks like"
Knight_Otu says, "Rooty rescue."
Sandon asks, "alright, want me to go?"
Knight_Otu says, "Nah."
Sandon says, "righty"

Floyd |
Floyd | Rob the Guard returns to the edge of the pit carrying a scroll. He
Floyd | unrolls it and begins to read as the wind whips past your ears.
Floyd | "Whereas today is the day after yesterday and the day before tomorrow,
Floyd | and whereas I, King Goosen of Papoosen have set to this document my
Floyd | seal, and whereas my seal ran off in search of fish, requiring me to
Floyd | get another..." The hook-nosed guard elbows Rob. "Skip to the end,
Floyd | Rob. Poor fellow's goin' to hit the bottom soon."
Floyd |
Floyd | The wind runs through your hair like a screaming banshee as you
Floyd | continue your descent. If you had it all to do over you would have
Floyd | practiced a little more. And learned a different song...
Floyd |
Floyd | Orchestra Pit, in Midair
Floyd | You can just barely make out the bottom of the pit, far below you. A
Floyd | small outcropping of stone juts from the side of the pit here.

Teaspoon says, "Thoughts of the Witcher are nigh irresistable"

Floyd |
Floyd | "Good point there..." Rob the Guard clears his throat, searching for a
Floyd | good spot to continue from. "And when in the course of human events,
Floyd | eh, so and so and so and so...Ah, here we are!" He moves further down
Floyd | the scroll and resumes his proclamation. "...and since I, King Goosen,
Floyd | did not like his performance of 'Ode to a Duck', feeling that it was
Floyd | inflammatory, I hereby banish him from my realm to spend the rest of
Floyd | his days in Orchestra Pit, unless he should die from the fall, as most
Floyd | people tend to do."
Floyd |
Floyd | The ground approaches with maddening steadiness. Perhaps you should
Floyd | have been a carpenter... Or perhaps you just needed more than one song
Floyd | in your repertoire.
Floyd |
Floyd | Orchestra Pit, in Midair
Floyd | You are almost at the bottom of the pit. Now that impact is so

Floyd | Singing was never your forte.
Floyd |
Floyd | Rob the Guard adjusts his spectacles. "And should he, in that time,
Floyd | learn to play better, it shall not matter, since there is no way back
Floyd | out of the Pit. This I hereby put to paper as my word is the law when
Floyd | the law is my word, when it is heard. Indeed. Thus I spake. Er, spoke.
Floyd | Alright, scribe, stop your dictating now." Finishing, Rob rolls up the
Floyd | scroll and puts it away.
Floyd |
Floyd | With a loud SHLURP, you land in the mud at the bottom of the pit...
Floyd |
Floyd | Pit Bottom
Floyd | The pit is about twenty yards in diameter and run-off from the sides
Floyd | drains into a large mud puddle in the center of floor. The air is
Floyd | thick with the odour of mud and mildew.
Floyd |
Floyd | You stretch and do a quick check, thankfully finding that you're still
Floyd | whole.
Floyd |
Floyd | Jim grimaces and sucks his tooth. "Ouch! That had to sting..." He cups
Floyd | his mouth and shouts down to you, "You're lucky, old pal! A few people
Floyd | have been known to break all of their limbs with that drop!" He elbows
Floyd | Rob and snickers. "But then, it wouldn't be much of an experience if
Floyd | he up and died so quickly, eh?" Rob nods. "Indeed..."
Floyd |
Floyd | By some trick of acoustics, you can still hear the guards' banter
Floyd | quite clearly.

Jacqueline says, "I'm guessing no matter what I grab, we shall fall, so."
DavidW says, "mmhm"
Teaspoon says, "....we're a bard who can't sing, huh"
Sandon says, "looks like so"
Knight_Otu says, "The worst kind of bard."
Teaspoon says, "wellll guess we just gotta get out of this hole then"
Sandon exclaims, "he's not a bard, he's a babard, a bad bard!"
Knight_Otu says, "Well, maybe except bagpipe bards."

Floyd | grunt, he tosses the case into the pit and it begins the downward

Floyd |
Floyd | Control Room
Floyd | Red and blue lights flash from long metal panels of all shapes and
Floyd | sizes. As your eyes become accustomed to this distraction, you see
Floyd | hundreds of little gnomelike men rushing in every direction, carrying
Floyd | all manner of objects. One particular gnome brushes by with a package
Floyd | labeled "Papoosen Propworks: mirrored walls".
Floyd |
Floyd | Next to you, a tall gnome, who looks to be in charge, shouts orders
Floyd | into the organized chaos, occasionally stopping to make notes in his
Floyd | black binder.
Floyd |
Floyd | The head gnome turns impatiently. "D'you put that music in the volcano
Floyd | yet, Larry?" He blinks. "Yer not Larry...Hey! How'd you get here?"
Floyd | Obviously displeased, the head gnome sets his black binder down and
Floyd | frowns. "This here's a restricted area, pal! I don't know how you
Floyd | figgered out the magic word, but you'll hafta get gone!"
Floyd |
Floyd | He snaps his fingers briskly. A moment of disorientation finds you
Floyd | back where you were before. You can't help but wonder if it was all
Floyd | just a dream, brought on by the stress of the week's events...

Floyd | the sides of the pit.

Floyd | his mouth and stage-whispers sideways to Rob. "Though that's what
Floyd | usually happens to 'em all, isn't it, Rob?" The other guard nods
Floyd | agreeably. "Quite right..."
Floyd |
Floyd | The trumpet case continues to fall. Luckily, the clasps seem to have

Floyd | in
Floyd | front, perhaps "Finney's Book of Nine Billion, Eighty-Four
Floyd | Definitions

Floyd |
Floyd | Cadence: The musical chords which outline a final resting point in
Floyd | a
Floyd | song. Personally I think cadences make music far too predictable so
Floyd | I
Floyd | usually only use one. And actually, in fifteen of my thirty-seven
Floyd | "Studies Only Using the Note F" I forwent a cadence entirely!
Floyd |
Floyd | Embouchure: To people who play brass instruments, like the trumpet
Floyd | and
Floyd | tuba, the embouchure is the area of the lips that play into the
Floyd | mouthpiece. People with stronger embouchures have more playing
Floyd | endurance and can play difficult passages with ease.
Floyd |
Floyd | Key: The tonal level of a piece of music. There are twelve major
Floyd | keys
Floyd | starting on each of twelve pitches between A and G. The major keys
Floyd | are
Floyd | the happy ones! There are also twelve minor keys, which start on
Floyd | the
Floyd | same pitches, for a grand total of 24 keys. Personally I like the
Floyd | keys
Floyd | of Ab minor and D major.
Floyd |
Floyd | Overtones: These are the natural tones that are produced at various
Floyd | intervals over the pitch being playing. Though you can't always
Floyd | hear
Floyd | them enough to label them, they give every instrument a unique
Floyd | timbre.
Floyd |
Floyd | Transposition: This is the act of taking a piece of music written
Floyd | in
Floyd | one key and rewriting it in a different key. One time, as an
Floyd | exercise,
Floyd | I transposed all four thousand of my G major sonatas to C# major.
Floyd | There isn't much to do down here.
Floyd |
Floyd | Tritone: Also known as the augmented fourth or diminished fifth.
Floyd | The
Floyd | interval of notes that is the exact one half of an octave in the
Floyd | standard system. To the ear, its sound is easily recognizable,
Floyd | although one cannot tell whether the interval is an augmented
Floyd | fourth
Floyd | or a diminished fifth, since the two are the same sounding pitch.
Floyd | An
Floyd | example tritone is C to F# (augmented fourth) or C to Gb
Floyd | (diminished
Floyd | fifth), both of which sound the same. I once tried to write a piece
Floyd | exclusively in tritones. However, I ran out of new notes in the
Floyd | second
Floyd | measure, and initial reactions to the twelve minute piece were not
Floyd | very good.

CF |

CF | one unlucky commoner speaks.
CF |
CF | "But Your Majesty! The duck wasn't there the night before. I bet it
CF | was just my neighbour, Mr. Grindstaff." His voice drops to a furtive
CF | whisper. "If you must know, he's always been a duck sympathizer."
CF |
CF | From the gallery, a voice rings out, evidently the aforementioned Mr.
CF | Grindstaff. "Choke on a turnip, ye yellow-bellied liar!"
CF |
CF | "Silence, churlio!" A guard bangs his halberd on the marble floor. All
CF | eyes turn to the throne.
CF |
CF | The King conveys a postcard image of wisdom before dispelling the
CF | illusion by speaking. "Your tale is obviously false, peasant. It's
CF | well-known that most duck owners keep their duck at the bottom of a
CF | moldy haystack where no one has tread for years, and that's exactly
CF | where we found yours. I sentence you to death and then deportation!"
CF |
CF | The Advisor hurriedly whispers something in the King's ear. The royal
CF | personage looks crestfallen. "They can't, eh? Blast it all! You
CF | peasant! I sentence you to deportation, and maybe death, if you should
CF | happen to die along the way." The King snaps and the guards carry the
CF | pleading peasant away. He is quickly replaced by a more worldly man,
CF | also accused of harbouring a duck.
CF |
CF | The King points at the man. "You sir, are accused of the same crime.
CF | What do you have to say for yourself?"
CF |
CF | The man smiles craftily. "Obviously I own a duck. Your men found it
CF | buried under that boulder in my yard." The onlookers gasp as the man
CF | pleads guilty. He chuckles and leans in closer to the King. "What
CF | really has me worried, though, is this surge in the population of
CF | hamsters."
CF |
CF | The King nods emphatically. "Actually, I find hamsters to be quite
CF | disagreeable little beasts. Always running this way and
CF | that...demanding food, shelter, and even immunity from property tax!"
CF |
CF | "Indeed they are a nuisance," agrees the man. "In fact, I bet that
CF | owning a hamster is even worse than harbouring a duck!"
CF |
CF | The King thinks about this new gem of knowledge and has a quick huddle
CF | with his Advisor. "Very well then. You, sir, are free to go on one
