Hello
If anyone is interested in reading a draft of the sequel to Wrong Way Go Back in order to provide me with some feedback; please email me at: ff_stories(a)hotmail.com
The story contains 100 references

Hi everyone.

So far I've been underwhelmed by a lack of interest in my new gamebook.
FYI, the sequel to Wrong Way Go Back is entitled: Planet of the Spiders. It is jam-packed with 76.67% more references, and a whopping 400% increase in combat encounters! Battle the forces of Arachnon using 2 new weapons! Smash your way through the citadel with no time limit! Talk to plants!

If you would like to receive a copy to review, please email me at: ff_stories(a)hotmail.com

Thanks

Ulyses,

I seem to be having trouble emailing you. it keeps coming back. However, I'd very much like a copy of Planet of the Spiders. I loved wrong way, go back, and look forward to reading its sequel. Thanks. My email address is prince.of.chaos@merseymail.com.

For those interested in the status of Planet of the Spiders, I am currently getting feedback from a few people. I personally believe the book has a serious flaw, which I will correct when I have time; along with implementing other suggestions. I do not expect to submit the finished book to this site before the end of this year; and what happens to it then will depend on the usual factors.

Planet Of The Spiders

At last! The unanticipated sequel to Wrong Way Go Back has arrived! Jam-packed with 81.667% more references, and a whopping 400% increase in combat encounters!

Ulysses Ai's new gamebook is ready for online play. It follows on from the end of Wrong Way Go Back, but can equally well be treated as a standalone adventure.

Compliments on the latest gamebook, Planet of the Spiders. It seems to be have a significantly different tone than the earlier Wrong Way.

You mentioned that: "...Planet of the Spiders. It seems to have a significantly different tone than the earlier Wrong Way."

Can you explain more about your experience of this gamebook (and WWGB)?

Ulysses Ai

Incidently, everyone, WWGB and PotS comprise 2 of an 8-part series. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

The sci-fi series (as yet unnamed) of which WWGB and PotS are part was originally conceived as a series of short, yet difficult adventures each with an interesting game mechanism. WWGB has a time limit, and PotS has sandwiches. The 'interesting game mechanism' didn't really work in PotS as the story grew beyond its original scope. It worked to an even lesser extent in the 3rd installment: The Golden Crate (completed, but going through checking) which was originally supposed to feature a disposable blaster with only five shots. When you chose to use them would determine the path of the story. But this story grew beyond its original scope as well, and was in danger of becoming a full-length gamebook before it was finished.
With episode 4 The Hypertrout (also going through checking) I managed to bring things back to 60-odd references and include a game mechanism that I can't describe without giving things away.
The remaing episodes: Contractual Obligation, Return to G15-275, and Voyage of the Profiteer are yet to be written, but will each feature an interesting game mechanism, and bonuses for playing the previoius titles in the series.
The main theme of this series is your quest to get a girlfriend, a task which requires you to save multiple planets in the galaxy before you suceed.

Wrong way, obviously, had a frantically paced atmosphere, charged with suspense, due to the whole time limit. It was quite easy to complete with low statistics. Spiders, on the other hand, is far more laid back, at times off the way humerous - think sandwiches, and a lot more unforgiving when it comes to statistics, especially luck. And that's what comes to mind at the moment.

Ulysses Ai

I suppose that's mostly true

However, regarding PotS:
If you follow the right path, even a LUCK of 7 will not prevent victory. Preserving LUCK was the other 'interesting game mechanism' I included in PotS. Originally there was another statistic that was akin to FEAR in House of Hell/Horror. But I decided to just use LUCK penalties instead.

Following the correct path also makes the final confrontation an almost-even contest for a SKILL 7 character. Furthermore:

Thus low-stat charcacters will only find the going difficult if they stray from the correct path.

Does anyone know which plant you have to meet in POTS to succeed in not blowing up the earth? I talked with the sappling tree, but that's the only one I can find closely related with a plant. Help would be appreciated.

Ulyssess, I enjoyed Planet of the Spiders, as well as the parent-bot adventure. PoTS seemed easier, which was a bit of a relief. Out of curiosity, is there more than one good ending besides
