A Quick Discussion on Random Variables by solostrike

This isn't a complete story so if 3J deletes it, I'll understand. I don't like reading a bunch of demos either.  I did this because I wanted to show my fellow newbies a couple of things that could help us make better stories:

First: I want to demonstrate that those that are still learning scripting, like myself, can use the variables and link restrictions already provided, to design a totally random event in their storygames.

Second: I want to provide a working model for discussions in random variable scripting. I hope that those that know scripting well, will comment on how I could do this better. I will be happy to give co-authorship to anyone who is willing and able to help.

In the Game:

STAMINA and AGILITY are the only attributes used. You begin with a value of 50 for each. Stamina provides your offense; Agility, your defense. Good results (landing a punch or kick) will replenish your attributes a bit. Running out of STAMINA and AGILITY both, has its own unique result as you will see.

The SCORE is naturally how you win or lose. You start out with a value of 50. If your SCORE falls to 0, you lose. If your SCORE goes to 100, you win!

Now, without further ado... This is a "deleted scene" from my "Answer The Call" story. If you've played it you'll recognize it as the final scene in chapter 1 - You are just about to enter the last digit to deactivate the bomb...


Archived Information:

Note: some comments are prior to my republishing this as a fight demo and before publishing the complete story, "Answer The Call", found elsewhere on this site.

***As of 1/10/2012 - I'm re-working the story so if you've played it before, please try it again.***

I made the puzzle hint easier to find...

If anyone would like to point out "particular" grammar errors, please do...

At the end it says "TO BE CONTINUED" because I will be adding more puzzles (and choices) as I write more chapters.

Since this is an experiment: I would really like to know, what your "COUNTDOWN" and "SCORE" were when you win.

 ***As of 1/9/2012 - I'm re-working the story so if you've played it before, please try it again.***

Thanks to the great comments and recommendations I received, I decided not to be afraid, use the "advanced editor" to add items to the story and figure out some way to do a timer of sorts using variables.

I didn't get this or the original ATC thing...what's the whole thing with the bomb and all these events popping up?

As others have said, perhaps you should try adding more detail to describe exactly how he got hit by or blocked your attack. It was still a good bit of fun, though.

Seems to work pretty good :)

I wish you had put this scene in your newest game. I would have loved it. Anyway, maybe you could have added better descriptions in the fight(Like the bomber getting hit or explaining how you are punching/kicking). Still, I did like it.(I love a good action scene) Hope you do more!

Some improvement over the previous version. Still short and military time hint useless though.

What does "rev.1" mean?

Grammar could use more work.

Keep at it.

Still too short to be continued, still pretty linear.

I finished with my time being 0809 and I had the mask, the envelope, and $57

I guess it's kind of better, but the hint is still irrelevent and you should add it before I start putting int the numbers!
