Guest15937 decides to continue following the white rabbit because he presumes that it knows much more about the stone golem's layout than he does. However, Guest ends up back at the location he originally spawned in! The rabbit stays in the area, leaving Guest antsy to get up and do something. Should Guest stay where he is, or should he forget the rabbit and head back?

MracY voices to the caretaker in a beautiful white, silky robe that he is hungry and that he would like some food. He then asks, "would you like to join me for a meal, ma'am?" The lady pleasantly replies, "I would love to" and smiles joyfully. MracY follows her to the dining room in the subsequent room. The room contains clear glasses, dishes, and utensils with elegant patterns. Each wooden table was donned in tablecloths, which had small, repeating patterns of toy airplanes. The caretaker makes some green herbal tea and scones for the both of them, along with a small Russian salad. Once both individuals are situated, the caretaker asks, "how may I help you this evening?" MracY answers, "I would like to know more about the attractions in this theme park. Do you know of any special occurrences found in this area?" The lady answers, "certainly, I would be glad to assist your search. The area near the front entrance of the airplane attraction does have a bench where two individuals frequently spend their relaxation time. This is a little out of my expertise, but I believe those two people might be in love with each other. However, they seem a tad apprehensive to speak to each other directly. If you're interested, maybe they could help you." MracY whispers, "I see" to himself and subsequently remarks, "do you know where my belongings are located, as I seem to have lost some personal items." She replies, "why yes, I do! I found some binoculars a few days ago that belong to you; you're welcome to retrieve them if you would like." MracY obtains a set of binoculars. His scheme to claim something that the inhabitants of this park believe is owned by him is successful!

gold stinger examines the surrounding scenery, but he does not discover anything out of place in the field. He then decides to scream loudly enough so that someone might hear him, but no one answers back.

DarkManticoreX2 pulls the glowing plants out of the coral reef and decides to explore the underwater cave now that he has obtained a steady light source. He swims into the pitch-black cave and spots a small creature with glowing, red eyes. He can barely make out the outline of the fish, but it appears to be glaring at him eerily. The fish also looks like it's grinning at DarkManti in an almost unsettling manner, which causes him to shiver. After a painstakingly long wait in dead silence, the fish finally swims away, deep into the cave's abyss.

Omeganitros, after a refreshing amount of leisure, thinks of a brilliant idea! Although the picture in front of him is only tall grass, he had not yet tried to listen to his environment. Omega cups his delicate hands around his ears and spins round-and-round, much like a carrousel. He hears some faint voices coming from the west, so he travels westward. He still ends up in the middle of grassy plains, but he can hear the voices with a bit more clarity than before. Before Omega falls asleep and rests for the night, he remembers to say Happy Birthday to his friend back at home. Even though he knows his friend won't hear the greeting, he is still happy that he remembered his friend's birthday.

I ask about the bumper car ride. Why do people gather there so enthusiastically there?
I thank her for her time and compliment her food. If what she meant earlier was that she didn't know much about the theme park, then I ask her why.

I examine the binoculars to see if they could be disassembled in a way that they could be reassembled again. i.e. in a way that would allow me to use the lenses, prisms, mirrors etcetera for other utilities, but also enable me to reassemble it if I need binoculars. Regardless of whether it is possible, I leave the binoculars assembled.

Afterwards, if there are still actions left for me, I go and search for that bench, and look for those two people. If I find them, I walk up to them and examine their state of affairs.

You're tracing quite the groove here, but what's your intended purpose for this trail?
Do you intend to explore east again at some point?
Or is it just to make sure you don't lose your orientation?

No, I wrote that you fell asleep because it's an unspoken presumption that all characters sleep every day before traveling the following day. Sleeping does not count as an actual event in the game, along with eating and going to the restroom. Please disregard the fact that you fell asleep.

There may be sleeping powder or other forms of powers which lull you to sleep during the daytime or for extended periods of time in the future, however.

I hold up the algae and follow the fish slowly, looking carefully to the left and the right for anything of interest (more plants, other passageways).

If there are other passageways, I follow and investigate a few of them for anything of interest, but always return to the main corridor when done to follow the fish

Try to write sentences non-ambiguously, unless it's on purpose.
Although I don't mind wearing a beautiful, white, silky robe.

Does time flow equally between all players?


You also seem to have not that many people who are playing right now.
Maybe you can get some more, if you want.

Thank you for the advice. I would try to be more precise in my language, but in my opinion, ambiguous sentences tend to flow more naturally in creative writing. If I reworded the sentence you pointed out, it would read, "MracY voices to the caretaker, who is wearing a beautiful white, silky robe, that he would like some food." If you have any examples of precise language that would sound more natural in the English language, then please show me. As of now, though, I will make sure to only write ambiguously when the possibility is expected. In addition, you may always ask about ambiguous phrases when you're unsure what I mean to convey.

Yes, each update counts as one day for every player.

I would love to have more players; anyone is allowed to join at any time.

I stick with the rabbit for a little longer, but if it looks like it's not going to do anything else of importance for some time, I turn around and go back towards the head.

Not just for in the case of losing orientation, but in the case that someone would wish to follow, or not follow.

I think the textbook solution is this, although also not particularly elegant.
Quote:
MracY voices to the caretaker in her beautiful white, silky robe that he is hungry and that he would like some food.
It is also possible to rewrite the sentence without ambiguity by making it longer, by adding some mannerisms.

At this stage, you can mention her robe by having her do something involving it,
although I think it's usually better to mention the general outline of how something looks when something is either introduced, or by creating a situation in which it is relevant to describe it.

Oh, okay. Should I plan actions as if the situation is the same when I wake up, or should I wait for an update? For example, I could picture you saying next turn "you wake up surrounded by people curiously looking at you!" and I wouldn't want to queue any actions not taking the new situation into account.

The situation is exactly the same everytime you wake up unless a sleeping potion or another related item is used on you. When I post the latest update, that update is the current state of affairs until the next update.

I'm planning on updating this thread in the next hour or so, but I can't update your actions yet, gold stinger. You posted that you would like to retrace your steps via moonwalking, but you also posted that you would like to travel westward, (which is away from your original location) and meet with Omega to ask if he would like to travel with you, which are three separate actions. Will you please clarify which direction you would like to travel?
