Let's Play: The Lurking Horror

Lurking Horror, The » Text Adventures

The Lurking Horror was rated by Game Spy as the 10th scariest game ever made.
GameSpy: Top 10 Scariest Games - Page 1

Halloween is coming up so let's give this creepy text adventure ago and play together.

We will play here in this thread as a regular forum game. I will type out the story and you will post the commands/actions.

You can post basic actions such as
( Click to show/hide )
N, E, S, W for compass directions.
Open [NOUN]
Close [NOUN]
Get [NOUN]
Put [NOUN] in [NOUN]
Give [NOUN] to [PERSON]
Ask [PERSON] about [NOUN]
Etc.

If you ever get stuck you can ask for help but try to avoid that until everyone is completely stumped.

You have 100 posts to complete the game in, if you post an action that the game does not understand it will not count as a post and, of course, my posts will not count towards the 100 moves. You receive 5 points for each game goal you complete. There are 20 goals for a total of 100 possible points.

Tips

And let the game begin!




The Lurking Horror
An Interactive Horror

You've waited until the last minute again. This time it's the end of the term, so all the TechNet terminals in the dorm are occupied. So, off you go to the old Comp Center. Too bad it's the worst storm of the winter (Murphy's Law, right?), and you practically froze to death slogging over here from the dorm. Not to mention jumping at every shadow, what with all the recent disappearances. Time to find a free machine, get to work, and write that twenty page paper.

Terminal Room

This is a large room crammed with computer terminals, small computers, and printers. An exit leads south. Banners, posters, and signs festoon the walls. Most of the tables are covered with waste paper, old pizza boxes, and empty Coke cans. There are usually a lot of people here, but tonight it's almost deserted.

A really whiz-bang PC is right inside the door.

Nearby is one of those ugly molded plastic chairs.

Sitting at the terminal is a hacker whom you recognize.

> Turn on PC.

The computer powers up, goes through a remarkably fast self-check, and greets you, requestiing "LOGIN PLEASE:". The only sound you hear is a very low hum.

OK. I will help you along. The login and password was in the documentation linked above.

>Type 872325412

The computer responds "PASSWORD PLEASE:"

>Type UHLERSOTH

The computer responds "Good evening. You're here awfully late." It displays a list of pending tasks, one of which is in blinking red letters, with large arrows pointing to it. The task reads "Classics Paper," some particularly ominous words next to it say "DUE TOMORROW!" and more reasuringly, a menu box next to that reads "Edit Classics Paper."

The menu box is replaced by the YAK text editor and menu boxes listing the titles of your files. The one for your paper is highlighted in a rather urgent-looking shade of red.

Re: Let's Play: The Lurking Horror

OOC: To move this along faster I entered a few steps for you. If you don't want me to do that again let me know.

>read paper

You click the box for your paper, and the box grows reassuringly until it fills most of the screen. Unfortunately, the text that fills it bears no resemblance to your paper. The title is the same, but after that, there is something different, very different.

The paper appears to be a facsimile overlaid with occasional typescript. The text is mostly in a sort of "Olde English" you've never seen before. What you read is a combination of incomprehensible gibberish, latinate pseudowords, debased Hebrew and Arabic scripts, and an occasional disquieting phrase in English.

As you look at it more closely, you find it hard to focus on the screen, but impossible to look away. Your finger strays toward the "More" box...

>click more

You touch the MORE box, and a new page appears.

The second page is much like the first, but around the edges, not when you look at it straight, it's almost readable. There is something about a summoning, or a "visitor".

>click more

You touch the MORE box, and a new page appears.

The third page is in the same script as the first, but laid out like a poem. There are woodcut illustrations which are queasily disturbing.

There is a translation, or notes for one, typed between the lines of the poem:

"He returns, he is called back (?)
The loyal ones (acolytes?) make a sacrifice
Those who survive will meet him (be absorbed? eaten?)
They will live, yet die
Forever will be (is?) nothing to them (to him?)

His place (lair? burrow?) must be prepared
His food (offerings?) must be prepared
Call him forth (invite him?) with great power
Only an acceptable (tasteful?) sacrifice will call him forth
He will be grateful (satiated?)"

The rest is even more fragmentary.

>Click more

You touch the MORE box, and a new page appears.

The fourth page is a photograph. You try to recoil from the screen, but cannot. Fascinated and repelled at the same time, you wonder: is that a mouth, and what is in it?

>Click more

You touch the MORE box, and a new page appears.

You faint, and when you awaken...

Place
The is a place. Things move about on a broken, rocky surface. Harsh sounds split the air. Something sticky grabs at your feet. There is no color, everything is drained of brightness, dull and lifeless. A path descends into a shallow bowl of black basalt.

Re: Let's Play: The Lurking Horror

>Look for snow
It could be lurking right behind you.

The crowd around you begins to sway and groan. They are expecting something. You are drawn forward by the noise.

At Platform
You stand before a low rock platform, more like an afterthought of piled rocks or a glacial moraine than a work of artifice. You are pushed against the pile by the crowd around you.

One small stone stands out in the pile, smooth, shiny, and glowing with a blazing light.

Re: Let's Play: The Lurking Horror

>Grab stone

Taken.

Suddenly, the dimness becomes darkness, and the crowd around you explodes with excitement. You are jostled and shoved from all sides. A low keening begins, building into a deafening, almost mechenical chant. The darkness before you compacts and deepens.

5/15

OOC: Is the lack of interest because it is too hard or too boring? I can drop hints to reduce difficulty if that helps.

>Attack

Trying to attack the thing with your bare hands is suicidal.

The darkness before you, now visible, is a creature. It towers over the now-silent crowd. The thing jerks this way and that, spraying a foul ichor. Its palps twitch expectantly, then pound impatiently against the rock. You can feel the smooth stone vibrating in your hand.

Re: Let's Play: The Lurking Horror

>Throw stone

You can't. You go through the motions, but the stone doesn't leave your hand.

The thing now turns, sensing the presence of the stone. It quests almost blindly for it, then those surrounding you thrust you forward. The thing stoops, its mandibles grasping you. You are lifted towards its gaping maw. The stench and the sounds issuing from it are overwhelming, and you fall unconscious.

You are awakened by the thump of your head hitting the terminal in front of you. Falling asleep over term papers! It must have been a nightmare. Embarrassed, you glance around. Yes, the hacker is looking in your direction. He must have heard the thump.

Terminal Room, on the chair.

A really whiz-bang pc is right inside the door.

Sitting at a terminal is a hacker whom you recognize.

Re: Let's Play: The Lurking Horror

>Talk to hacker

Hmmm... the hacker waits for you to say something.

The hacker wanders over, trying to look nonchalant as he takes over your chair. "Losing, huh?" he asks wittily. He glances at your terminal, which displays a pattern of snow and unusual characters. He appears somewhat excited.

Re: Let's Play: The Lurking Horror

>Watch hacker

The hacker is staring at your terminal. Every so often, he pauses breifly and twirls a lock of his hair. He is also humming under his breath. The hacker is dressed in blue jeans, an old work shirt, and what might once have been running shoes. Hanging from his belt is an enormous ring of keys. He is in need of a bath.

The hacker, mumbling under his breath, begins a flurry of activity. First the screen returns to something nearly normal, then windows begin popping up like toadstools after a rain. The screen looks a lot like the top of his terminal table (or the bottom of a trash can).
