ClubFloyd Transcript:
Midnight at Al's Self Storage, Truck Rentals, and Discount Psychic Readings by Thomas Insel
As played on ifMUD on July 10, 2022

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 Midnight at Al's Self Storage, Truck Rentals, and Discount Psychic Readings written by Thomas Insel. Midnight at Al's Self Storage, Truck Rentals, and Discount Psychic Readings was released as part of the 2022 ParserComp. 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.

CF | This was supposed to be an easy job to earn some money the summer
CF | before college, but Joe has an impossible list of chores for you every
CF | evening. He's the owner and only he handles the truck rentals, but
CF | somehow you need to move a lot of boxes around for a "self" storage
CF | business with no visible customers. For the record, nobody knows who
CF | Al is and you're not actually sure what's up with the psychic
CF | readings.
CF |
CF | Why couldn't you have found a job at the mall like everyone else?
CF |
CF | Anyhow, you walked in, and Joe handed you a list. He seemed in a hurry
CF | to leave, but whatever, the sooner you finish the sooner you can get
CF | away with a nap in the break room.

CF | Break Room
CF | This is also the storage room, but you are most interested in the
CF | incongruous overstuffed arm chair in the corner. You can go east, and
CF | you could go south, but that's a door labeled "Seance Room" which
CF | you've never seen opened. A closed hatch in the ceiling leads to the
CF | attic.
CF |
CF | On the counter are your backpack (closed), a pile of rental forms, a
CF | bag of padlocks, and a box of keys.
CF |
CF | > Knight_Otu says, "Al, or AI, I wonder idly."

Jacqueline says (to ClubFloyd), "x shirt"

CF | > X SHIRT
CF |
CF | You thought this hardcore band was so awesome that you bought the

CF |
CF | > Jacqueline says, "heh"
Jacqueline says (to ClubFloyd), "x backpack"

Jacqueline says (to ClubFloyd), "x catalog"

CF | There is a call button here that will summon the freight elevator up
CF | from out of the floor.
CF |
CF | > Jacqueline says, "I don't know why you all are letting me drive I am not good at it and I get lost easily and then David gets frustrated with me and then I cry--all of this is true except for the bit about me crying over it."
DavidW asks, "So I should drive?"
Jacqueline says, "I mean, we always make you drive, and I feel bad about that."
Jacqueline says, "I'm just not great at it."
DavidW says, "I was a bit distracted, looking at my new lease-to-be."

CF |
CF | You lack a key that fits the rusty padlock.
CF |
CF | > Jacqueline says, "Okay."
Knight_Otu says, "Hm."
Jacqueline says, "Also, seems that most of the padlocks are the same, but not all of them..."
Knight_Otu asks, "Maybe we can just break it?"
DavidW says, "Maybe that one's key is in Joe's office."
Jacqueline says (to ClubFloyd), "i"

Knight_Otu says, "(That we can break it, I mean.)"
DavidW says, "Assuming the office door is unlocked."
Jacqueline says, "Well, I think we knew that getting three simple boxes would not be simple."
DavidW says, "We may have to sweet-talk a spirit of an oil man to un-rest the padlock."
Knight_Otu says, "As long as we don't have to play Tetris with the boxes as well."
DavidW says (to Knight), "aiieee"
Jacqueline asks, "So south then?"
Knight_Otu says, "Yeah, south."
DavidW says, "Any direction is good at this point. yes."

CF | $750 Crystal Turtle - from a "significant collector"

CF | > X AMULET
CF |
CF | The materials aren't inherently valuable: two roughly worked stones,
CF | maybe river jade and jasper, on a fiber cord. But it looks very old,
CF | like a piece you saw on a school trip to the local museum.
CF |
CF | You really want to try it on.
CF |
CF | > DavidW says, "Turtles aren't ugly!"
Jacqueline says, "No, but crystal turtles kinda are."
Knight_Otu says, "But renditions of them may be."
Jacqueline says, "Crystal anything honestly."
DavidW says, "okay fine"
Jacqueline asks, "Reckon the amulet is magical?"
DavidW says, "bet the amulet is cursed"

CF | > Knight_Otu says, "I am leery of our want to... yeah."
DavidW says, "but might also be a light source"
DavidW says, "We probably SHOULD wear the amulet. Because of the huge 'really want to try it on' flag."
DavidW says, "Author clearly wants us to wear it."
Knight_Otu says, "I mean, I guess we have to, doesn't mean it's for our best."

CF |
CF | (first taking the amulet)
CF | Taken.
CF |
CF | You sort of want to try it on. Don't worry, it won't clash with your
CF | grandmother's necklace.
CF |
CF | The world around you fades away, and you have a vision...
CF |
CF | In a cave a small group, probably a family, carries in what must
CF | be a body, wrapped in rough cloth. It is so small, but you know
CF | somehow that it is not a child. It is an old...man. He feels male. And
CF | powerful.
CF |
CF | They lay him down gently, and arrange an amulet around his neck.
CF | A pale green and a reddish brown stone. Then they deliberately cover
CF | his body in rocks, laughing and crying and talking to each other in a
CF | language you don't understand or even recognize.
CF |
CF | After only a few minutes, they are done and return the way they
CF | came.
CF |
CF | You blink and return to the present.
CF |
CF | You put on the amulet.
CF |
CF | > Knight_Otu blinks along with the protagonist.
Jacqueline says, "Yeah"
DavidW asks, "'feels male' = didn't shave his legs this morning?"
Jacqueline says, "heh"
Jacqueline says, "I think in the same way that you felt the PC was female."
DavidW says, "well, we've kinda entered an era of IF where we shouldn't assume genders too quickly."

CF | > Knight_Otu exclaims, "Oh, hey, we did it!"
DavidW says, "I didn't expect it to end right there."
DavidW says, "And we kept our last quarter too."
Knight_Otu Joe asks "Hey kid, what happened to my 4 grand amulet?"
DavidW says, "I haven't a cairn in the world."
Jacqueline says, "Hm."
Jacqueline says, "This game was not what I was expecting, and it feels like maybe it is not the game that was originally planned by the author. Maybe."
Knight_Otu says, ""An' while we're at it, I'm missin an expensive watch and a crystal turtle...""
Jacqueline says, "Lord only knows where those came from."
DavidW asks, "maybe the idea was to put those back as well?"
DavidW says, "but yeah, Joe is gonna ask questions."
Knight_Otu says, "I'm not sure I was expecting anything specific. It does feel that some questions are unanswered."
Jacqueline says, "I guess the title had me thinking this was going to be something kinda like a Bitter Karella game, and it also felt like some of the initial stuff the author wrote had more character and depth, but then they ran thin on time."
Jacqueline says, "(Sorry, author... just how it feels...)"
DavidW says, "There should have been a beach where you put the crystal turtle in the water, and it invites you to ride on it to a fabulous crystal palace under the waves, but all you find is... .glub ... glub .... glub ..."
Jacqueline says, "heh"
DavidW asks, "The game does have an odd quality to it, doesn't it?"
Jacqueline says, "It's definitely an interesting juxtaposition of things."
Knight_Otu says, "Not quite horror, not quite magical reality."
Knight_Otu says, "I am glad we played it, aside from that elevator."
Jacqueline says, "The storm, the earthquakes, the sliding-block-puzzle-of-an-elevator, the visions, the cave in the vault, replacing the amulet... some stuff that's really mundane, some stuff that's full of possibility that's only brushed upon..."
Knight_Otu asks, "As though it was building to something big, and then we stumble upon a molehill?"
DavidW says, "I guess we didn't need the salt for anything, any more than we needed the paint can."
