Perils I'm leaving out?

I see no reason in pointing out perils you left out, you'll end up adding them eventually(out of what I've seen so far). 8)

Themes you'd like to see?

Is Lolote a theme? ;P

Hey there all.  Finally updated again, only a couple new chapters, but more excitingly, the first artwork to go along with the story/site has now been posted.  Let me know what you think :)

Other than the fact that Rosella was licking her hands, after being in a swamp :X , I liked it! :D

okay, so i've slacked for a few days... but i just pounded out a bunch of new chapters (kind of) including the troll cave.  Have fun with that one.  Hopefully in a text way, it'll all remind you of the fun of getting through it in the old game ;)  Anyway, let me know what you think!

I loved it, Rosellafan!  The new chapters sucked me right in!  In fact, I was engrosed that it shocked me when I got to the end of where I left off and realized that I had to choose what to do next!

I'm not sure if I read all the new sections, but out of what I read, I thought was great! :)

When I am not fighting personal foes left right and center I will see if I can read it!
When cities burn and armies turn,
and flee in disarray,
Cowards will cry 'tis best to fly
and fight another day.
But warriors know it in their marrow when they die and fall,
It is better to have fought and lost than not have fought at all.

Although I've been commenting and playing all along, I felt like posting in this thread. Very vivid (and amusing) death scenes. The last sentences on the death pages seem like the same sarcastic messages I'd be expecting from an official Kings Quest game. I absolutely love it. It gets the official Daventry Royal's Seal of Approval! Or DRSA for short, ;)

Hello readers... you're out there... aren't you???  :P  It's been a month since I've posted an update on here, so for those who haven't been around, The New Perils of Rosella is in to Chapter II now, Rosella has escaped that wretched swamp finally and is into the heart of Tamir!  Aside from new pages, I've had some great help from this forum's very own Louisiana Night and Rosella in "sprucing up" the look and feel of my site, so thanks to them  ;D  And finally, the first few illustrations for the adventure have been posted, so you can see an interpretation of Rosella post 8bit as I like to say  ;)  I hope I'm keeping you all happy with the story so far, and I'm working hard to keep the progress coming  :D  Thanks!!!

Question.
How come sometimes when I choose a direction in the cave, I die,(Right place, Wrong time instead of Wrong Way)then I can hit back, make the same choice and its the right way?

Aha, good question... and the answer lies in the crafty coding support of this forum's very own Rosella.  Being a text adventure, I'm limited to how much of the actual 80's PC smash hit that I can recreate.  That being said... anyone who has played the old PC game remembers wandering through the dark troll cave.  There was a correct path that you should follow to get to the other side, however even if you were going the right direction, sometimes you were unfortunate enough to hear the "Grrrrrrr" which meant the troll had popped up.  And despite the false hope that you might outrun him on the first screen, he was always right there on your heels the next screen over regardless to drag you off to an "unknown" fate (I chose to go with a KNOWN fate in mine, hope you all like my version :).  Well, point is... there's a right way, and a wrong way.  Wrong way, joins a one time only day spa, and Right way, the troll shows up SOMEtimes, and SOMEtimes, you're lucky.  It's all coded in chance.  So you choose the right path, and there's a random link that decides if you get wet, or stay dry as it were ;)  It was the closest I could come to recreate the frustrations of the PC game journey through the cave.  And I owe Rosella my thanks to that little code help :)  Hope this helps Jafar, and anyone else wondering why the hell the cave part is so miserably frustrating ;)  And thanks for reading.  I hope everyone is still enjoying it!!! :)

Hmm, nifty stuff! I tried similar, random devices within my old text adventures (updating the lot using XML formatting and it looks like I may get them approved for open release to the world!  :D)

(trust me, that is a miracle in itself!)

Nice descriptions! :D I certainly wouldn't want to wander into a mummy's crypt either unless I was absolutely safe...

Though I wonder what would happen if someone wrote a story based on an adventure game and included some of the bad endings? ;) "I walked into the mummy's arms, expecting a warm hug, but all I got was the crushing grip of death.... moments later I saw a bright white light, woke up, and I was back with the Good Fairy who warned me to not try such a foolish act again." ;)

That's kind of the point to my story, to have those bad endings that make you start over from a certain point.  You can choose the path "into the mummy's arms" and end up having to start over... atleast I think that's what you meant, right?  :)  Anyways, thanks for the compliment, glad you're liking it so far, stick with it, it's just going to get more "fun" :)

I know I might be beating a dead horse here, but I'm desperate to keep the Sierra Fan Fiction portion of this forum alive  ;D

Hello everyone.  It's been almost a month since my last post, and I figured I'd drop by to let you know that I've had a few more page updates on my King's Quest IV fanfiction.  A couple more illustrations and a couple more of Rosella's more perilous moments if you know what I mean ;)  While Chapter II may seem a little confusing as far as the direction is concerned, it will have a sort of inventory system created, and there is basically a "correct" path to choose in each of the 9 locations, depending on the items you have collected and their proper use.  So if it seems like everything's a deadend for now, please be patient and bear with me.  Enjoy the details and the "game overs" for now ;)  I'm hoping upon its completion, it to be a fun little adventure!  Anyhoo, check it out and let me know what you all think about the progress, and anything that you as fellow Sierra nuts would like to see.  Thanks!  :)

I like it! :D

and, when it's finished, I'd like to see "Rosella pets the python" or something like that! :D

easter egg? :P

Well, I finally got off my lazy bottom and hammered out some new stuff after a month of loafing  ::)  A pretty good update too.  Several new pages, and a couple new pics.  Let me know how you all think it's coming along.  Thanks :)

Rosellafan, a week after you posted this, I finally got around to reading it.  It's looking great!  My only disappointment is that I can't seem to be able to get any further in Chapter 2 :(  Are we going to have to do things/go places in a certain order?
